It sends shivers down my spine to even look back to what most likely will always be my “BMW drive of a lifetime” – the magical day when I got to experience both a classic 1930s BMW 328 Frazer Nash, as well as a car I absolutely love the look of – a 1970s BMW […]

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 […]

Sometimes you end up behind the wheel of a machine that blows your mind. Whatever the reason is, we all know that some cars you drive leave you cold whilst others awaken a feeling inside you – and one feeling that was strong after my drive in the BMW M1 was jealousy. I was jealous […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
