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 […]

Guess who will (hopefully) never again decide to film a video with speech on a windy day without a good mic? Because really, who is so stupid that they would even try to do it? Yours truly is the answer to both questions. It really did not work out as planned this time with that […]

After an early morning shoot at Lake Garda I had to start a drive back to Switzerland to return the Nissan GT-R to Nissan Schweiz. I know I am really lucky to even get access to cars like this, with price tags so high that I am not in the position right now to buy […]

With the Nissan GT-R I was following some of the same routes I had done with 991 GT3 the month before. Booked an apartment for one night in Tremosine sul Garda. Village Hotel Lucia in a nice location, I was sitting on the private terrace with my laptop for many hours, just enjoying the lake […]

On my way south from Zürich to Italy I stopped one night in a town next to Maranello before driving to Tuscany the next day. All roads lead to Tuscany… I drove quite a lot of roads I have been on before but also many new ones. I had my friend seated in the co-driver’s seat […]

Last year I did a road trip from Switzerland to Tuscany with a Toyota GT86. I discovered a lot of lovely roads there, including rally stages, and also did a day trip to Elba Island with my friends Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG. This year I did a repeat drive of last years trip, but now with […]

Last year when I visited my friend in Tuscany and needed to wash the Toyota GT86 I was driving he showed me a self car wash place in Cecina. The owner told me that come back next year because he is opening a Razor Touchless Car Wash (by Washworld) and he will be the first […]

With season approaching – only two months to the first road trip – I thought it would be nice to share some actual plans here. Because of my work, which of course also involves occasional road tripping on supercar events, calendar planning is really necessary for me. As a person I am quite spontaneous and last minute […]

When the first thing you see in the morning when you look out from the window is a beautiful sun rising behind a mountain silhouette, life is quite good. This was the view I had from my hotel room at Grimsel Hospiz, and with a relaxing background sound of babbling water from Grimselsee it is […]

After my drive on Colle del Nivolet I set the navigation to take me to my hotel for the next night, Grimsel Hospiz. This hotel is located directly on Grimsel Pass and is definitely the most luxurious hotel you can find directly on this road. Such an amazing place that I will have to dedicate […]

Colle del Nivolet and a Nissan 370Z Nismo… Wow. I have some nice video footage showing the landscapes there that I will include in the road trip video. But I believe and hope that already from the photos you can see what an amazing and scenic driving road this is. The only negative thing I […]

After Great and Little St Bernard Pass the journey continued to one of the roads I looked forward to the most – Col de l’Iseran. The three highest and probably also most famous French mountain passes in this region of the French Alps – Col du Galibier, Col de l’Iseran and Col de la Bonette […]

I am trying to come up with as many flattering words as possible to describe the fantastic driving route I enjoyed on the second day of the road trip with the Nissan 370Z Nismo. However it almost feels like I am running out of words again and just want to let the photos do the […]

Friday morning, 5th of September, I drove to Nissan Switzerland to pick up a new road trip ride. A Nissan 370Z Nismo. It was a tired girl who was not completely recovered from the Barcelona trip that got there. I had my moments driving to Nissan that morning when I was almost regretting I had […]

I like route planning. For myself maybe more than I do for other people, because I sometimes drive 10-12 hours per day… Easily. With very few stops. That is one of the reasons why travelling alone (or with the dog) is much less complicated – I only have myself to take care of, and no […]
