Just back from a 6 day car trip to Nurburgring race circuit with fellow petrol head friends. Some photos of the selection of cars below
A friend kindly gave me a lift to pick up my new car, so on the way back thought it would good to grab a snap of his stunning car.
So it’s that time of year again, to take a long weekend break and visit the Highlands, Scotland for some great driving roads, with stunning scenery. Managed to grab a few snapshots on the way around.
Main route over 4 days & 1500 miles took in Carlisle, Erskine Bridge, Fort William, Achnasheen, Ullapool, Durness, Dornoch, Dornie, Grantown on Spey, Perth and Selkirk plus lots more in between. Prices for Hotels ranged from £35 to £65 a night including breakfast.
As a kid, the one super car of the time I had as a poster on the wall, the airfix kit built & the diecast model on the shelf, was the iconic Porsche 911 from the 80′s.
Well now I’ve bought one :). Aircooled, 25 years old, 133K miles, no ABS, no traction control, just pure driving pleasure
A couple of photos of the cars from last holiday, driving around the Highlands, Scotland.
Unfortunately I haven’t finished building my Ultima and the first day 450 mile slog was too much for me to take in the Caterham. So my wife kindly let me take her Merc. Friends cars are the iconic Honda S2000 & the stunning Aston Martin Vantage V8.

A couple of weeks ago I went on a driving holiday with friends to the Highlands, Scotland. 4 great days driving around stunning scenery, with the mountains, lakes, lochs & coastline, covering approx 1,500 miles. Taking in such areas as Oban, B Orchy, Fort William, Achnasheen, Ullapool & Aberfoyle, to name a few.
As this was a driving holiday primarily, I only took my trusty Panasonic Lumix LX5 camera to grab some snaps on the way round. My intention was to take photos using HDR (High Dynamic Range), so I set the camera to auto bracket 3 shots at 2 stops intervals. Using some HDR software here are the resulting photos of the Highlands.
Couple of photos of a friends Ferrari 360 CS, taken at Cheltenham race course
The Challenge Stradale is a limited production track day focused car based on the 360 Modena. It was inspired by the 360 Modena Challenge racing car so the focus was primarily on improving its track lapping performance by concentrating on handling, braking and weight reduction characteristics, which are essential in pure racing cars.

A few photos from the scene at St Pauls Cathedral, where anti-capitalism protesters have set up camp.
Was near St Paul’s Cathedral today, so thought I would take a couple of snapshots with my trusty Panasonic LX3.
Taken from the Millenium Bridge & path leading up to the Cathedral. Have to say you never realise how imposing this building is, until you see it in real life !!
Haven’t had time to do much photography recently, as I’ve been tied up with another passion of mine….. cars. Not sure if I’m mad to do this or not, but have decided to build an Ultima GTR. How much more intimate can you get with a car
Anyway this morning was spent fitting the headlights & upon finishing the job I found the light was streaming in the back of the garage, so time for a Mono dark moody shot trying to catch the outline of the car.
If you’re also a car nut, then follow my progress on the build here :- Ultima GTR Build
