I decided recently that it was time to reduce my collection of cars. I use the term collection loosely but I had a valid reason for acquiring each and every one at the time. First things first, I needed to take stock- that’s a polite way of saying I had no idea how many cars I had and in some cases where they are! I was half shocked and half proud... [Read more...]

Lauren about to to be let loose in one of the Supercar Experience Porsches!

Having been involved in motorsport for over 20 years I suppose I was a little cynical but intrigued to see how things had moved on... [Read more...]

Money was a little... [Read more...]
