The best way to describe Mille Miglia as an experience is to say that the lack of sleep can become a complete mindfuck, and that the plans you make will most likely be changed a hundred times on the road – so relax, enjoy the ride, and take things as they come. I hoped it […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
