San Jose, California, was my first stop in a whistle-stop business mini-tour of our North American acquisitions. I would eventually cover almost 21,000 kilometers and visit 11 cities in three states by plane and car. In only 12 days.
So early on a Tuesday at Gatwick, I boarded another one of the new
A Search for Tier Points.
I had 160 reasons for flying 8 hours 26 minutes in total (nearly 3,400 miles), to and from Arrecife, Lanzarote. I had to collect 160 BA Tier points in order to maintain my particular Executive Club membership and the flights to and from Lanzarote in a
Is Lewis Hamilton the G.O.A.T?
No one would laugh you out of the courtroom if you were to argue the case that Lewis Hamiton IS the G.O.AT (Greatest Of All Time). As Lewis Hamilton clinches his fifth FIA World Drivers' Championship (WDC), comparisons with the sports' all-time greats are inevitable and
Bicester Heritage is based on a 348-acre former R.A.F base in Oxfordshire and is home to one of my favourite events, the Sunday Scramble. There is plenty to see and do at this event, from exploring the Technical Site with its recently restored 1920's and 30's buildings to the
To Singapore (Via Hong Kong).
The Singapore round of the 2018 FIA Formula 1 season was the convenient excuse we needed to visit three exotic Far Eastern location that had been long on our 'to visit' list, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. I'd add Hong Kong to that list but a stopover

The 2018 L'Etape Du Tour, stage 10 of the 105th edition of the Tour De France started in Annecy and ended nearly 170 kilometers away in Grand-Bornand. The 'race' started on the shores of the gobsmackingly beautiful lake Annecy and winded its way over some of the most beautiful and
The Event. The 2018 L'Etape Du Tour.
The 2018 L'Etape Du Tour, the 10th stage of the 105th edition of the Tour de France will be ours (15,000 amateurs and enthusiasts) to ride on the 8th of July. It seemed like yesterday that I was struggling to get to the top of
The National Motor Museum.
1,620 Porsches. I repeat: one thousand, six hundred and twenty Porsches in one place. This easily smashed Beaulieu’s Simply Porsche event's previous record of 1,003 Porsches set last year. This yearly event is held in association with The Independent Porsche Enthusiasts’ Club and there were models from
769 miles (1,238 kilometers), 11 h 21 min via A26. These are the driving stats google returns when you type 'Calais-to-Nice'. And oh, that is one-way only. So the drive to Calais and back would cover 1,538 miles (2475.171 kilometers) and take 22 h 42 mins!

Over the winter we hatched a plan for a cycling training camp to better prepare for some of the cyclo-sportive events we have entered this year. Our experiences in last year's Etape Du Tour made this an imperative. We chose Mallorca as the location for our training camp. This choice

Four years on, The Sunday Scramble is an event known nationally attracting enthusiasts from all over the UK and offers the opportunity to explore the former RAF Bicester base, the restored wartime buildings and businesses based
I do not normally write product reviews but I was compelled to write one after spending a weekend with a bona-fide superbike, the Bianchi Oltre Xr4. I am the proud owner of another legendary bike, the Colnago C60 but I now feel like a long-married man who has had a
The Cape Town Cycle Tour, an event whose recent history has been dogged by controversy, natural phenomena and plain bad luck. This year was no different as there had been a severe drought in the weeks and months leading up to the event in Cape Town which at one point
We visited the 2018 London Classic Car show at London Excel. The show is now in its fourth year and has become the must-attend event for any discerning classic car owner, collector, expert or enthusiast. In short, it is a must-attend event for any self-respecting petrol head.
Happy new year. Lets look at some of the events and activities we have lined up for this year. It promises to be a most interesting year with at least one major cycling, motoring, Formula 1 and motorcycling event each month. We will be adding the dates of each
