WFCS 2.24 – Night Vision Driving in an Audi In my racing career I have done a lot of fun crazy things, but none like this one! When my producer suggested it I thought he was joking, but next thing I knew I was hurtling around a race track fixated on a three inch screen to show me the way. It truly is a case of...

WFCS 2.23 – Recreating Classic Bullitt Car Chase Driving the streets of San Francisco in the tire marks of one of the most famous car chase scenes was a real treat. Since the movie Le Mans we have had a family connection to Steve McQueen. So knowing that I was seeing what he saw (albeit at a slower pace) and connecting...

WFCS 2.11 MINI Cooper Works at Willow Springs I love the MINI Cooper! I have always owned one and there is nothing that can make you feel this fast on a public road without breaking the law! Fun per pound this is a knockout ride and to prove my point I took the new Cooper Works MINI to the racetrack, where there are...

WFCS 2.10 – Ford F-150 Raptor / VORE Being British I have this bizarre fascination with the American obsession with huge trucks – and nothing comes bigger or better than the Raptor. But driving one round LA is mildly frustrating, so we went out to the desert and discovered that you honestly can go anywhere in this...

WFCS 2.9 Test Driving the Mercedes-Benz GL450 Spaceships, futuristic technology and the new Mercedes GL450 all came together for me when I headed to New Mexico to take this impressive vehicle on a road trip. And as you would expect when you land that close to the infamous area of Roswell – some strange things can...

WFCS 2.8: BMW M6 Over the years some of my best driving experiences have come courtesy of BMW and this time, with the roof down under the brilliant California mountain sunshine, I had another one. What an amazingly fast and enjoyable car the M6 convertible is and to think, this type of a good time is legal!

WFCS 2.7: Fiat Abarth, Las Vegas I’m always up for life’s challenges, but this one may be extreme — even for me. I was to go to Vegas, stay in the most exclusive hotel room on the strip, take the new Fiat Abarth and see how much trouble I can get into. After getting the car keys from a supermodel I do a little racing,...

WFCS 2.6: Drifting School (Formula Drift eBay Racing Ford Mustang) I have raced many kinds of cars all over the world but one form of the sport that has blown me away by its profile and appeal – is drifting. I spend my life trying not to get too sideways or I do a slow laptime and use up my tires, but here it looked...

WFCS 2.5: eBay Racing – Tiger Racing Ford Mustang – Anatomy of a Race Car What a great year of racing I have had in the eBay Motors #50 Mustang – but when it comes to this very fast race car all is not what it appears. It may have started life as a production Mustang but by the time the team converted it to race Spec...

WFCS 2.4: Pebble Beach 2012 – Jay Leno / Breitling Stunt Plane I go to Pebble Beach, where I meet Jay Leno on the Concept Lawn! Jay shares his knowledge about the history of concept cars and what makes cars collectable in the future.

Pebble Beach 2012 — Trans Am Racing at the Monterey Historics I bet you didn’t know that Trans Am racing was once as big as NASCAR? Well I have always been a fan of the series and even raced and won Rookie of the Year in 2001 in a Corvette in the Championship – so it seemed natural for me to do a story on the history of...

WFCS 2.1: Pebble Beach 2012 – The Concept Lawn Top 5 One of my favourite automotive lifestyle weekends of the year is at Pebble Beach for the world famous Concours. It attracts such a diverse crowd who are all there to be within inches of the worlds most expensive cars. And this year once again we got to stand on the...
