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.

Happy Tenth Anniversary to Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands, the UK Home of all things Mercedes.
Innovative Brooklands brand centre opened in 2006
Over three million people have visited the site, which combines a driving centre, museum, showroom and more
Offers amazing driving experiences both on-track and off-road – including driving lessons for under-17s
Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey is celebrating its 10th anniversary this weekend. Since the innovative brand centre opened its doors in 2006, over three million people have been welcomed through its doors.
The free-to-visit facility at the historic Brooklands race track provides visitors with a fascinating insight into Mercedes-Benz’s 130-year-long history, from the very first automobile in 1886 – the Patent Motorwagen – to the very latest products from Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG and smart.
On top of this, Mercedes-Benz World offers incredible driving experiences on purpose-built tracks both on and off-road. Over the past decade, some 430,000 customers have enjoyed these – the oldest driver being 106 years old, and the youngest just three. In fact, some 30,000 toddlers have got behind the wheel of Mercedes-Benz Bobby cars as part of the Little Learners experience for three-five year olds.
Mercedes-Benz World has also played host to a number of high-profile product launches, including the world premiere of the new Mercedes-AMG GT R this summer. The range-topping sports car was airlifted to Brooklands before landing in front of the world’s media, with Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton taking the GT R out on the track.
To celebrate its 10th birthday, Mercedes-Benz World is offering a £20 discount to customers purchasing an AMG driving experience – meaning an hour of one-to-one tuition at the wheel of a powerful Mercedes-AMG model will now cost £180*. To purchase please call 0370 400 4000 and quote ’291006MBW’ (not available online).
Mercedes-Benz World is open from 10 am – 6 pm, seven days a week (with the exception of Christmas Day and Boxing Day).
