Drag Racing in the UK—Nostalgia Super Stock

Author Elise  |  13th January 2021

By Charlie Fuller In 2019 I had one goal. It was to buy my dream car: a classic 1966 Ford Mustang. I hunted everywhere, from shows to dealers and online. I was convinced that Mopar Euro Nationals was going to be the place.

Author Elise  |  11th January 2021

By Niamh Smith When I first walked out of the cinema after seeing Baby Driver, I immediately declared it my new favourite film.

Overview of Goodwood SpeedWeek 2020

Author Elise  |  27th October 2020

By Chris Williams The way I prefer to watch motorsport is contrary to the way I prefer to watch rugby. My sofa, craft beer of my choice, superb camerawork, and some mates to argue the rules with makes for a tremendous rugby experience. However, thunderous engines demonstrating the Doppler Effect and giving headaches to earthworms is something I usually elect to experience in-person. Thus, it was unfortunate ...

Ladies With Drive – Charlotte Vowden
