BTCC | RD 13/14/15 | OULTON PARK 2019

Oulton Park hosted the fifth round of the BTCC and marked the halfway point in the championship. The title battle is now slowly beginning to take shape, with Turkington leaving Croft as the championship leader and Rory Butcher just behind, despite not having the best of weekends at the Yorkshire circuit.

EXCEL’LENT SHOW | THE LONDON CLASSIC CAR SHOW 2018

As I grow older I find myself being drawn away from the more modern performance stuff and more towards Classic, Retro and generally Old Skool Cool cars, every now and then I dip my toes into the classic scene by attending a few local-ish shows; and so when The London Classic Car Show rolled into town at the Excel it was the perfect way to spend a day out.
