Six Swinging Sixties Supercars From The Monaco Auction

By | Cars | No Comments

For the jet-set, what other place in the world epitomized the swinging Sixties more than Monaco? For this auction, we decided to pick a few head-turning supercars that would have easily graced the streets of Monte Carlo back in the late Sixties.

Porsche 911 at the East African Safari Rally

By | Cars | No Comments

After the loss of the Safari Rally from the World Rally Championship in 2002, rally enthusiasts got together to recreate the nostalgia of “The Safari”. The idea of this rally: allow classic cars built before 1974, and to avoid the powerful turbo charged and 4WD drive cars. Held every two years, the next East African Safari Rally happens in 2015.

Prescott Speed Hill Climb by Jim Darling

By | Cars | One Comment

The Prescott Speed Hill Climb has been held in Gloucestershire, England since 1937. Photographer Jim Darling, who lives near Gloucestershire, contacted me about the Prescott. After seeing his images I was hooked. I asked Jim if could contribute a story about this truly historic race.

“I have been using cameras since I was 12, my Dad bought me a very used and second-hand Canon AE-1 on holiday in the USA – I still own it. He then helped me develop as a snapper with encouragement and purpose until you have what you see here today.”
– jim darling

Prescott Hill is one of those places that has been on my list of places I ought to have been to, but never have. Of course I knew about it, a bit. I knew it was only forty minutes from my house. I knew it was steeped in racing history, that it had hosted noise, danger and speed in equal measure for 80 years or so. What I didn’t know was why the hell had I not got off my butt and made the effort to go. A chance encounter with a display of those sad, fold out leaflets advertising Monkey World, Barometer World, and “Ice a Cake Expo” provided the inspiration. My wife persuaded me I needed to go before it was too late and that afternoon I was on the phone arranging a track side pass and getting my kit list sorted out for the weekend.

Photographer Andrew Paynter is my friend and neighbor. When I saw this video he directed for NYC based women’s fashion line Chance. Typically, I focused immediately on the green Jaguar E-Type. He was kind enough to send over some extra photos he shot of this classic automobile.
