My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

GOODWOOD - Lord March takes the BMW i8 up the Hill Climb to open this year Motoring Event.
This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed has kicked off in style, with Lord March completing the very first run of the weekend up the famous 1.16-mile hillclimb course in a BMW i8.
BMW is this year’s Honoured Marque and is celebrating its centenary at the event, with displays showcasing its storied M Sport performance range, as well as looking forward to its next 100 years with a focus on its electric offerings in the i range of products.
The first run being completed in the futuristic, all-electric i8 fits perfectly with BMW’s theme examining the future of mobility.
Meanwhile, visitors have been pouring into the beautiful Goodwood Estate despite the murky weather to see nearly 30 brand new cars make some form of debut at today’s Moving Motor Show, part of the newly-introduced Press & Preview Day.
Today’s Moving Motor Show allows visitors to get up close and personal with some of the most exciting new cars – some of which have not even gone on sale yet.
It also provides a sneak preview of all of the main Festival of Speed show content, including the Michelin Supercar Paddock, Cartier Style et Luxe Concours d’Elegance, Goodwood Aviation Exhibition, the spectacular motorcycle stunts of the GAS Arena and the amazing cars that will be sold in the Bonhams Auction.
