Break for the Border Road Trip

We sample Great Escape’s Break for the Border Road Trip to see if driving a varied range of classic cars makes the perfect antidote to dealing with the winter blues. Let’s face it, the UK winter of 2016-17 wasn’t the best and seemed to drag on forever with an endless combination of grey skies and […]

It’s 180 miles back to Astwood, we’ve got a full tank of gas, five classic cars to drive, it’s overcast and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it we did as @MrMarkFairhurst and I went on a Great Escape Classic Car Road Trip never to forget. #greatroadtrip It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got the best classic car in […]

2015 Classic Motor Show

Big is the only way to describe the Lancaster Insurance 2015 Classic Motor Show at the NEC where after six hours we only managed one lap. That’s a whole of lot of clubs, car sales, trade stands and Automobolia for your £20 entry fee. Another late decision to attend meant a relatively early start in an attempt […]

2015 Autumn Classic

With queues stretching for miles in all directions around Goodwood these days is it time to look much closer to home and get a taste of nostalgia without all the fuss and expense of much larger events.

2015 Castle Combe Rally Day

It’s been a few years since I last visited this event and the 2015 Castle Combe Rally Day did not disappoint with attractions stretching from Bobbies Chicane right through to Quarry Corner, even Ari Vatanen was there for goodness sake.

2015 Croft Nostalgia

2015 Croft Nostalgia Weekend

Many race circuits around the UK have a classic meeting in their calendars but not many combine it with a full military display, aerobatics and even a Vulcan bomber fly by, introducing the 2015 Croft Nostalgia weekend.
