The Abarth 500


After seeing the Abarth stand at the Autosport Show, sitting in a 595 and generally dribbling over all the pretty cars, I knew that I had to have one. This came from months of agonising over Audi, Abarth, Vauxhall, VW and on and on. But actually meeting all those cars at the Autosport Show made me realise that it’s the Abarth for me.


The Autosport International Show 2014


This show did so much for my car obsession. I got see to everything from Abarths to a Mustang to a chrome Lambo to old F1 cars. I also had the pleasure of standing very close to the track in the Live Action arena and getting very dirty (careful...) in the process.

I'm going to tell this story in pictures because I'm still a little giddy from all the pretty cars.

the badge

Now for the hard part, if you have read what I had to say about the Porsche museum you might know what I’m talking about. Part two of my trip to Stuttgart was a trip to the Mercedes Benz Museum, all nine floors of it. I gained huge respect for Mercedes on my afternoon at the museum not only that I think I fell in love with the brand.


Fans turn out to support Michael Schumacher


Schmacher has been in a medically induced for five days since he sustained a head injury while skiing. He's currently undergoing treatment at Grenoble hospital and is critical but stable.
