Good to see Jonny Smith in his Flux Capacitor Electric Powered Car taking part in Street Eliminator. As a class sponsor Jonny kindly fitted my sticker (so should run better now 😉) The team are hoping, after a few more tweeks to get into the 10s all going well. Busy day tomorrow for them and the class as 5 planned runs are o...

Many thanks to Ben Shuckburgh of CKL Developments for showing us his newly finished Mk1 Cooper S, what a stunner! He was testing at the Goodwood track today and was great to do a Photoshoot on it in such suitable surroundings. This was the first time the car would be driven in anger. With the Goodwood Revival only a couple of weeks away and a guest...
Back in the summer, Editor Jeff and myself took the ferry over to the Isle Of Wight to shoot a very special Mini 30 owned by Dan Dutch. Jeff had seen the car before in person but I hadn't. When we arrived I wasn't disappointed! Everything on the car was immaculate and done to really high standards inside and out. Dan has also a unique way of dis...
Yesterday at Santa Pod the VW Action Show, just as the last few minutes of running time ticked by, Daniel in his Donkey Tec Golf VR6 Turbo 4WD did an 8.517 @ 164.86 mph! So what could it run today???
Yesterday with the guys from @pvw_mag an arranged 7 car cover photoshoot for the mag was planned, it was then decided to do 6 short shoots on these barmy motors from over seas. They range in power from 900 to 1100 brake horse power! To cut a long story short I ended up with a total of 11 different cars in from of my l...
I've just spoken to Eljan what a nice guy, I found out his Nova is putting out over 800 bhp and his best time so far is in the 8s , I can't wait to see this run tomorrow at 've action, Santa pod raceway.
Stuarts 996 Porsche makes the pages in GT Porsche Magazine this month. This car believe it or not is 15 year old, yes 15! But looks as modern as ever in my eyes. It boasts 700 bhp from its twin turbo 3.6 litre engine. And take it from me it's quick! (thanks for the quick ride Stu!)
Really looking forward to VW Action at Santa Pod Raceway this coming weekend, many motors from across the water as well as the UK cars will be hitting the strip so expect to see some stunning quick times!
Great day with the boys at MB Developments, they have created a real marmight car (which I really liked!) It's just had its first tune and on just under 1 bar made nicely into the 600s horses! See more on this brut in the coming issues of Japanese Performance Magazine. Here is a quick camera phone pic.
Out in this months www.retrocarsmag.com is a very special Honda NSX that Honda Institute allowed us access to. Not only was this the very first NSX in the UK but BOTH Ayrton and Bruno Senna have driven this very car, and now I'm sat in it!
