Autosport International – The Racing Car Show

If you are looking to immerse yourselves into beauty, there may be many better options than to spend a day at Autosport International, or ASI, as it’s well known as. Britain’s answer to more popular shows like SEMA or TAS doesn’t quite have the same scale, the same weirdness or the same clout as its most famous equivalents in the USA or Japan. What it has is a treasure trove of racing teams, racing car manufacturers and suppliers,...

Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage – January 2019 Edition

While the “mother” fair held (each...

Above the clouds

Last weekend I met with a good ol’ friend for a drive in the mountains. Nothing special so far, right. After all, mountains are Alfa’s favourite hunting grounds. Yet, this time, it all felt very special. We didn’t see each other in 10 years. It’s only my second drive in my Spider. Also his second drive in his Spider. And he is now driving the car I used to own about 5 years ago. I got the Alfa virus in 2006, the moment I first...
