  • The “drum brake series” goes racing at Oulton Park – a dream come true

    And so it came to pass that the drum brake series we had introduced to you back in May just had their second outing – at Oulton Park – with your brand still associated with the whole exercise. Still held under the banner of the very kind banner of the HSCC, the most badly afflicted vintage …

  • Back at Le Mans Classic – an ode to joy

    No, we are not thinking about Ludwig von, but yes, we got back to Le Mans Classic after a (too) long, COVID induced, interruption. And yes, it was everything we hoped for – and more. In broad strokes: A masterful organization of the whole event, supported by a glorious weather – Check! A wonderful Suixtil …

  • Our friends from Hagerty do it again – in Greenwich this time!

    In another classic case of “success breeds success”, our friends at Hagerty have demonstrated once again their knack for putting together events that people love. Not only that, but these turn out to be true magnets not just for afficionados but also for new comers to the (dare we call it that) hobby – if …

  • Grazie Mille (that was easy…)

    It was that time – just slightly off the regular timetable of the 1000 and everyone (at least everyone we know) were looking at whether things would work out –  and how? – for the Mille Miglia. Last year’s edition had to be dramatically curtailed because of the pandemic and this year’s good signs about …

  • We love Paris in the Spring time – and you do too when it’s Retromobile

    And so it came to pass that for reasons beyond our control we had to give this edition of Retromobile a miss. It was, quite literally at that, heartbreaking. Then again, it did not have to mean that Suixtil wouldn’t be there. Quite fortunately, our partners and friends from Historic Driver – you must know …

  • Guess what – the season now starts even earlier, thanks to Maastricht

    We had heard about Interclassics several times before (and some of our partners have even attended the event) but we never quite took the full measure of the event ’till we visited the Brussels show (organized by the same team) last year and had the privilege of receiving a full gallery of pictures from – …

  • The Classics & Sports Car gift guide features some cool ideas (including 2 from us….)

    So the Classics & Sport Car Gift Guide for the year is out. Brightly penned by Marc McLaren (destiny?) it lists varied products that would please any discerning enthusiasts.

  • Autoworld Brussels Zagato exhibition

    When you’re in Brussels, there is a detour you will want to make to Autoworld – the auto museum homed in a turn-of-the-century palace in a grand setting. There is almost always an exhibition running (we luckily caught the Zagato one that was about to finish) and while they are not very large they are …

  • Brussels InterClassics – what an unexpected pleasant surprise.

    And merely a week after Lyon, we were thrilled to be able to attend InterClassics in Brussels under a clear blue sky and in a venue replete with style (the exhibition center dates back to 1935 and is right across from the famed Atomium). It is a show that resembles Belgium at large – not …

  • Epoqu’Auto in France, a great big show…

    And so we were at the beginning of November, wondering if the season was already over when we walked into Epoqu’Auto in Lyon, France, with our partners from Historic Driver for yet another exhibition. And it was great for different reasons – mainly having to do with the meeting of friends (like Gerard from Autodiva …
