All started out quite well.....
I remember this one like it was yesterday- greasy qualifying conditions put me on pole for the big one, the televised race, ahead of all the fancied runners. All went wrong for me mid race, can’t remember what went wrong- hard to believe it’s 20 years ago this year! The end of the race is a classic though as Owens and O’Reilly go at... [Read more...]

Erik Holstein and Murray Motorsport have already wrapped up the 2013 ITCC series!
It is almost the time of year where the radio stations start playing those depressing “Back to School” ads. They depressed me as a kid for obvious reasons and nowadays they just remind me that we are well into the second half of the motor racing season. Most of the titles are still up for grabs as I type this, the exception being the ITCC-... [Read more...]

One of the fleet- the ASK prepared Schumacher Seicento!
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...]
