MOTORSPORT – SUPER GT 2014 ROUND 1 AT OKAYAMA MOTORSPORT – SUPER GT 2014 ROUND 1 AT OKAYAMA

Catching the first flight out of Tokyo’s Haneda airport was always going to be a tough ask considering how little sleep I usually get, but making my way down to Okayama International circuit in western Honshu to cover the season opener for Super GT 2014 more than got me motivated. 2014 is an important and exciting year for the series as it ushers in a potentially great new slew of changes that can realistically spur this series to greater heights now and in the future years to come…  Read More →

EVENTS – RETRO HAVOC 2014 PREVIEW EVENTS – RETRO HAVOC 2014 PREVIEW

Retro Havoc 2014 was an event that really took a lot of people by surprise, including me.

EDITORIAL – MITSUBISHI KILLS OFF THE LANCER EVOLUTION LEGACY EDITORIAL – MITSUBISHI KILLS OFF THE LANCER EVOLUTION LEGACY

Can you imagine a world without the GT-R? Or perhaps a world without an STi Impreza? No, neither can I… but Mitsubishi suits and corporate management got the bright idea that the world didn’t need or want a Lancer Evolution either and so, I am sad to say that, with immediate effect, we all have to sit and watch as a beloved moniker goes from being a “King of the rally stages” to a “Queen of the kitchen”… The Lan-Evo is dead and it’s official…

Since picking up this pristine, low kilometer Bayside Blue example from renowned resellers Global Auto and now the second of two owners of this highly prized 2000 model GT-R V-Spec II Nur, Kenneth has literally thrown the book (and his wallet) at the car, ending up with a monster truly worthy of the greatest Pokemon trainers…  Read More →

The Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show is back this year in full force, with an extensive 10 day showcase of cars from the past, the present and the future held from the 15th of November to the 24th of November.

EVENT – WORLD TIME ATTACK CHALLENGE 2013 EVENT – WORLD TIME ATTACK CHALLENGE 2013

Thursday night, 11pm. I arrive in Sydney and my reserved hired Hyundai Getz is unavailable due to the depot being closed at the hour. I resort to ditching hitting Gangnam Style at 3000rpm for a more Japanese Nissan Micra. But I’m not in Sydney for the sole purpose of driving a soft fuel sipper. I’m here for the World Time Attack Challenge of 2013. It’s Friday morning, and I’m bolting down the Great Western Highway for the event. Upon arriving I’m greeted by a healthy selection of modified Japanese cars in the parking...
