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 […]

My next stop in Tuscany was 5* boutique hotel Castello di Casole in Casole d’Elsa, located 60 km south from Florence. If you drive the straight route, which I now did to save time. But there are a few scenic options if you want to extend the drive and enjoy a few better roads. It […]

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 […]

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 […]

A year ago my friend invited me to Sicily. I had been planning to explore Sicily for quite a long time but never got that south on any of my road trips. It sounded like a good idea to take a flight to Palermo and finally experience Targa Florio. I was very interested in the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Stelvio Pass. I am definitely not exaggerating if I say to you I think about Stelvio several times a week. It can be when I see a photo of a nice car and think to myself “that could be a nice one to take to Stelvio”. It can be when I miss the Alps and […]

I feel I have been very lucky because I have been able to visit Tuscany several times in the past two years and I have had the privilege to also see the many sides of this beautiful region in Italy. From the busy alleys inside Florence Old Town to the seaside retreats on the Tuscan […]

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 […]

Driving roads in beautiful landscapes is one reason why I love Tuscany, but the other really is the good food I find there. The quality of the food and all the great new restaurants I find each time I am there. Again I have visited places that truly deserve a special mention here because of […]

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 […]

After doing a first short photo shoot in the hills above Monaco (see all the very nice pics in this post) with Italian photographer Federico Bajetti, I met up with him again when I stopped at Lake Garda on my way back from Monaco. First we did a few photos in the evening and the […]

I have found so many incredibly beautiful photos online of the racing yellow Porsche 991 GT3 that I on my #gt3tour took to Cars & Coffee Brescia, the first event of the year organized by Cars & Coffee Italy. Many of the shots so good they they need to be shared and I also want […]

Last month I picked up a black Alfa Romeo 4C from Motorvillage Zürich for a five day test drive. The car was booked for earlier dates in May but because some mountain passes I expected to be open mid-May were not open yet, I moved the dates a few weeks forward. This was not the […]
