Perhaps the fact that we ended our last day of a classic car race with less photos on the memory card – compared to the previous days – was a sign that on the last day of Mille Miglia we focused on what was even more important – having a lot of fun without stressing […]

The third day of our Mille Miglia race can be described in a simple way – the day we lost them all, yet had an absolutely amazing day touring through the Tuscan countryside. In the middle of the night, in our hotel room in Rome, my laptop stopped working while I was just about to […]

Last month the annual Monaco Yacht Show again filled the port and bay of Monaco with eye candy. You might think that I’m only referring to the luxurious yachts – some more subtle, some the size of five mansions – but where you find masses of people with their pockets full of cash, you’ll also […]

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 […]

It was earlier this year that I first heard of the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat Prestige 2017 classic car event and I immediately knew I would want to go. On their site it is described as an event for all fans of vintage vehicles – like a Concours d’Elegance. This year the event was held on 23rd & […]

The Monaco car event Cars & Coffee Monaco held one of their meetings at Opéra de Monte Carlo the last Sunday of August, and we saw that as a good opportunity to get our BMW Alpina E30 C2 2.5 Cabriolet washed and ready for a day trip to Monaco. I have driven several very eye-catching […]

The Goodwood Festival of Speed – FoS – is one of those car events that I almost felt ashamed I hadn’t ever attended. On more than one occasion among friends I have seen a truly surprised expression followed by the words “You never been to Goodwood?!”. It is now clear that the car festivals at […]

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 […]

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 […]

Last Thursday I met up with two friends who came from Italy to Monaco to have a stroll around the first edition of a new car show in Europe, SIAM 2017 Monaco International Motor Show. Of course when there is something new you want to see it. The show is described on the website as […]

Yesterday was a sunny day spent in Monte Carlo with friends for the first Cars & Coffee Monaco event for this year. My two friends Federico and Jacopo, both who write for the site Escape on Wheels, were down south from Italy to follow and shoot the Rallye Monte Carlo Historique event. I had not […]

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 […]

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 […]

“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 […]
