Poor trees

Japanese supercars ruin the equilibrium of the forest with their disgusting exhaust fumes.

Makinen spills Skyline’s pint

So Makinen is asked to step outside in a pub where cat swinging is certainly not allowed.

Waving the Makinen goodbye

Ack. The Makinen was taken from me today. Sold to the Good Man Quentin of FullOnLoon fame. I trust the car will be looked after, I am also very happy to see the car go to someone I know. This way I get to see the car whenever I want! Is it just me, or does other become sentimental with their cars? I can’t help but feel terribly sad when it comes to selling these cars. One becomes so attached to them, parting with them is that little bit more special.

Trax2001

Silverstone and Trax 2001. Shame I couldn’t honour my track time, I have a deposit on the car so I wouldn’t be fair on new owner. However, lots of fun to be had, not for the two cars that died. A totalled P1 and a very dead 993 Turbo 4. Ack. I would love to push for track day organisers to put pressure on members to organise personal and third party insurance cover. Imagine the scenario. Bob in his piece of crap comes far too fast round the corner, loses total control and rear ends […]

Like I needed identity

I purchased a fantastic number plate (thanks to Adam) for the Makinen. The amount of hassle I had trying to get a number plate made defied belief though.

Makinen at Bedford Autodrome

Pictures courtesy of Josh Levy © Bedford Autodrome is one of the largest motoring entertainment sites in the UK. It has a very large track that is split into 4 mini circuits. Our track for the day was one of the nicest, easiest tracks I have been on. A 2 km straight provided high speed thrills and also ensured many people went home with good ol’ Mr. Spongy Brake. Fortunately, because of its set up, it is also an excellent track for amateurs. Its vast, wide run off area’s are ideal safety nets for those […]

Wedding cars courtesty of friends

Mon sister was given away on this fine day to the wonderful Steven Young. Although the bastards tricked me into accepting a crippled camel, the 40 sacks of rice should help us peasants for a while. I hate weddings, but this kept me thrilled right to the end, I was soarly dissapointed to see it finish before I did. Special thanks go out to : Mark (R19KET) for assisting in the preparations. Adam M for allowing us to use his car as a wedding car, thereby showing mine as being better han his. Alex Creasey […]

Evil eye succeeds again

Whilst enjoying a leisurely drive down one of my favourite B roads today, I was pleasantly surprised to see a Metro with 6 occupants come tearing round a bend to face me (death) in the eyes…

Commissioned (politely asked) wax wizard to help me prep the car for Castle Combe and get rid of some nasty swirl marks that were happening on my car.

Penthouse meets Top Gear

Was honoured to grace the pages of Fast Car Magazine this month. Despite the embarrassment of reading said magazine on the London underground, there were one or two good pics in there.

Better than a Mak?

I currently have some very good offers for an Evo 7 from two very reliable sources. One is from Roger Clarke motorsport, whom I have purchased 3 cars from in the past. They have never failed to provide me with bona fide cars and have never ever let me down before. Having said that, Iain Litchfield has touched my heart with his honesty and frankness. It’s refreshing not to get sales talk from a dealer in cars. Regardless, I want an Evo 7 now, I just need convincing and so far Litchfield imports have the […]
