I test drove a Porsche 718, the new model where a 6-cyl naturally aspirated flat six engine has been replaced with a new turbo 4-cyl engine, the first time in Finland last June. The car was a lava orange Porsche 718 Boxster S, the one with a 2.5L engine producing 350 hp, but sadly without […]

One of my first drives up on the beautiful mountain road Col de Vence in France, about 20 km from Nice, was almost 3 years ago in a BMW. I had photographer Richard Pardon & videographer JC Pieri hanging out from the boot of the car, shooting supercars behind me. I got caught by the […]

When Dorian, who is a car photographer & spotter on Côte d’Azur, spotted me one day with the racing yellow Porsche 718 Cayman in Monaco we decided we need to set up a photo shoot of the car some day. There are always some limitations with what kind of photos I am able to take […]

Colcorsa – “the world’s greatest driving roads in the best driver’s cars” – is the luxury supercar driving tour company that I founded last year. Now the prices for this year are online for most of the driving tours, and also a list of all the available cars in all regions (supercars, sports cars and […]

Route de la Turbie and the road that goes up all the way to Tête de Chien, from where you have an amazing view over Monaco and the coast… This scenic driving road that can be described as the playground of Monaco supercar owners has now become my playground too. I was first introduced to […]

After a failed sunrise drive up to the summit of Mont Ventoux it was time to do a change of plans. My first idea was to stay a night in the area (because two sunrise drives are better than one, right?). However because the road was closed I decided to start the drive back instead […]

Sometimes when I have a car for a drive I know exactly where I want to take it, what road I want to drive with it. Now the Porsche 718 Cayman was delivered to me a morning in late December, with temperatures ranging from 13-20 degrees daytime on the French Riviera. I got the car […]

So why did I end up on a Mercedes-Benz G-Class off-road trip in the Scottish Highlands, trying to make it coast to coast in a black G-Wagen? To quote the roadbook, “Over the next couple of days, we will be attempting something no one, to our knowledge, has done before: to drive motor cars from […]

Happy holidays from the sunny French Riviera! I am spending this year’s Christmas in a Porsche. During my 28 years on this planet I have never spent a Christmas away from my family. However this year I made the decision I would not be flying back to Finland basically just for one day. I love […]

The website Drivetribe has now launched and my tribe The Perfect Roads – the world’s greatest driving roads in the best driver’s cars – is up and already filled with nice road content. I was able to choose if I want to make it public so all members can post, or if I want to […]

“Did you ever go on a great off road adventure?” was the question in an email I received. My reply was no. I have been off road driving a few times in past, but an adventure? In my opinion an adventure is a journey to the unknown. That is what I would like to call […]

What is my reason for joining Drivetribe? For me this blog has been all about pleasure not business, for a lot of years. I have not made many attempts to monetize it. I did not want to fill it with a lot of ads. Sponsored post requests were declined even if some people think of […]

Something I really like is to receive emails from people who have driven roads that they have found through this blog. That makes me feel like I have done something right – shared a story of a road so someone else can find it, and later I get to hear that they enjoyed it as […]

Two guys who run the site “People with Penelope” are out on a really cool road trip right now – it is Mongol Rally 2016. This event is an annual 10K miles rally for charity through Europe and Asia in “tiny cars”. With tiny cars it means that you can only enter the rally with […]

What would be the perfect way to end a road trip? To check in to a nice hotel, of course. When I said goodbye to my friends in Monaco I was not going to head back directly to Germany to return the Porsche. Instead I drove to Saint-Paul-de-Vence to check in to Le Mas de […]
