  • Schloss Dyck von Trips memorial – a Concours & demo drive well worth the trip to Dusseldorf

    It had been a few years since we had attended the Schloss Dyck event and we were surprised to see how much it has grown in the interim. The landscape has been reshuffled to accommodate a larger population of cars, a bigger line-up at the Concours (while the settings remain as grand as ever). The …

  • Glorious Nürburgring Classic

    Of course the track is  not what it once was, of course the spirit that animates those exhibition races is not quite the excitement that once presided over the proceedings being held here. And yet, if anything, the cars have grown more even beautiful with the passing years and their owners ever more determined to …

  • 77th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood – Paradise found, almost….

    May is still young and it is quite daring, as previous editions have shown – with hail and all, to be organizing a large-scale racing outdoor event. But Lord March‘s team, undaunted, pulls out all the stops and organizes what is, somehow, like a Revival of the Spring (or, in music parlance and if Stravinsky …

  • Amelia Island – Florida’s perfect attraction in March

    We had to do it – for you, escape the cold and drudgery of a winter’s tail-end and make it, like snowbirds, to Florida in March, But believe us, it wasn’t all that glamorous and just 5 days before the famed Concours d’Elegance put together by Bill Warner and his team the weathering was cold, …

  • Porsche 911 at speed on the salt

    The South America Grand Prix – Another grand TC like rally.

    And so it was that for half of October and the best part of November this year, a group of enthusiasts (close to 20 teams + support) went off across half a dozen countries through hell and back (what’s the old Churchillian saying? If you’re going through hell, keep going) with their choice of vehicles …

  • The Goodwood Revival – another view, still the same magic….

    You know how accountants say that “it’s always better to have two pairs of eyes” (though they’re probably just rationalizing the glasses)? Well, that’s exactly what happened to us in the case of the Goodwood Revival: we were fortunate to also have Günter Biener, our friend and Ambassador, on site to capture – as he …

  • The Goodwood Revival – yet another magic moment in time

    Those of you who have been fortunate enough to attend the Revival know it all too well: it is just the pinnacle of vintage racing. Most of us who are blessed enough to go there regularly (and call it work, even) and can compare with other events around the globe also realize how much work …

  • The Oldtimer Grand Prix at the Nürburgring – all action, all the time!

    An early August weekend was the perfect setting for this splendid event where racer from all over Europe (and a few from beyond too) get together to celebrate speed in a meaningful manner. What could be more meaningful than racing at breakneck speed in vintage cars on a track that Sir Jackie himself nicknamed “the …
