When I first arrived on Pag, a small island paradise connected to the mainland of Croatia by a bridge or ferry, with its barren and moonlike landscapes interspersed with water meadows and green hillsides, my first reaction was that a road trip could not get a lot better than this. I thought I had found […]

With only minutes to spare before the press office was due to close, on the day before the start of the Mille Miglia 2017 classic car race through Italy, we curved in with a Porsche 911 Targa 4 to the Mille Miglia Paddock in Fiera di Brescia. I saw the finish line, a media tent […]

With limited time on this Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet road trip, and eager to cross the border into Croatia as soon as possible, I set up the ambitious plan to drive from Côte d’Azur to Zagreb in one day. I had to drive the first half of this road trip on my own, […]

The first year I visited Top Marques Monaco was in 2015 when I booked a racing yellow 991 GT3 press car that I drove south from Stuttgart, via Italy, for a two week road trip. Exactly a year later I returned in a racing yellow 991.2 Carrera S, and for Top Marques Monaco 2017 I […]

For years I have had a dream that thousands of petrolheads out there share with me – to participate in the “1000 miles” Mille Miglia race in Italy. The ultimate way to do it, and that dream of mine is still unfulfilled, is to own or have access to one of the eligible classic cars […]

Ask me what are some of my favourite moments in life and one of my answers would be when Porsche delivers a car to my home. Each time the cars arrive with a perfect shiny gloss finish, fresh from the car wash, with a driver who asks for my signature on a press vehicle contract […]

I had a round trip I had to do from Nice to Zürich at some point before end of November, so last Sunday morning I left Nice early in the morning and drove towards Zürich but with a stop in Milan first. I had a good reason for that stop. The Duemila Ruote (Italian for […]

There are so many scenic roads in South of France. Some of them are just nice for photo shoots, as they are single-track roads and not in the best shape, so you would not want to go fast there. But if you want a nice place for pics and zero traffic, only a beautiful driving […]

Since I had a yellow 991 GT3 for Top Marques Monaco 2015, it was pretty clear I wanted to arrive in a yellow Porsche for Top Marques Monaco 2016 also. We will see what 2017 will look like, if it again will be a yellow Porsche, or something else. But when a few of my […]

What do you get when you start up the engines of a Porsche 991.II Carrera S and a Jaguar F-TYPE V6, tap the exhaust buttons and drive out from Monaco to a few nice mountain roads nearby? You get The Popcorn Race. If you have read about a road trip I did with a Jaguar […]

I have missed Tuscany. The last time I visited Tuscany was in May 2015 with the Nissan GT-R, so it was about time to return. Even if it was only over the day, without the time to stop for a night somewhere there, and even if it meant I had to do an extra long […]

This is not the type of post title I ever imagined I would write here, but because of an unfortunate incident on the second day of the road trip, I ended up driving four different Porsches during the course of a 12 day road trip. Last year I booked a racing yellow Porsche 911 GT3 […]

The final video from the #gt3tour is here. It is a collection of some clips I had left from that road trip. Tuscany & Hotel Le Fontanelle, Grand Hotel Miramare in Liguria, Col de Turini, Lake Garda & Strada della Forra, and a few clips from the Swiss Alps. I did not plan to do […]

My first visit ever to Lake Garda happened last April when I drove there with the Porsche 911 GT3 to shoot some photos on Strada della Forra. I stayed there one night and got the chance to explore some towns around the lake both in the evening and morning. I have not yet shown the […]

When I got two hashtag stickers for the Porsche 991 GT3 before going out on the trip – #gt3tour and @getpalmd – it was mainly with Monaco in mind. I knew that during the dates of Top Marques there would be car spotters in every corner of the streets around Monte Carlo. I was hoping […]
