AF’s Clean + Shoot – 20 October 2013

AF’s Clean + Shoot – 20 October 2013

Here at AF, we love stone chips. They’re a sign of proper use; a badge of honour. But there’s still something about a clean car that grabs our attention. It doesn’t have to be concourse standard but giving the old girl a good scrub (using modern, swirl-minimising techniques) lets you […]

OzRenaultsport National Meet – 6-9 September 2013

OzRenaultsport National Meet – 6-9 September 2013

The seventh annual OzRenaultsport National Meet was held over the weekend of September 6-9, in Albury, Gunning and Goulburn. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it this year breaking a five-year run of attendance. I did, however, manage to organise a last minute morning visit to Wakefield Park on Saturday and grab a few […]

Blue Mountains Drive – 21 July 2013

Blue Mountains Drive – 21 July 2013

Another month, another sparrow’s fart drive. With snow forecast down to 600 metres, the convertible options looked unfavourable but we risked it and were rewarded with no precipitation, clear blue skies and refreshing mid-winter bite in the air. With the remnants of the previous night’s pizza still digesting, we assembled […]

Blue Mountains to Goulburn Drive – 17 February 2013

Blue Mountains to Goulburn Drive – 17 February 2013

4:30am. The perfect time to rise for a morning of enthusiastic, mountain driving. A warm mid-February morning greeted me as I rolled out of bed, got changed in the dark, fumbled for the keys and made my way outside to my RS Clio 197. A brief rendezvous at the usual Balmain […]

OzRS Southern Highlands Drive – 9 December 2012

OzRS Southern Highlands Drive – 9 December 2012

Another south coast drive with the OzRS crew, but this time with a twist. The inner westies met at the usual spot before hitting the road for the official meet point: We met the rest of the group at Pheasants Nest, for an early start on some roads new to […]

Shannons’ Eastern Creek Classic – 19 August 2012

Shannons’ Eastern Creek Classic – 19 August 2012

Another year of the growing Shannons Classic at Sydney Motorsport Park, with Mother Nature turning on a stunning, cloud-free day. With over nineteen-hundred cars on display, the variety was endless – from Cadillac to Citroen, Lamborghini to Lotus – with many rare examples on display. I was fortunate enough to […]

Blue Mountains Drive – 22 July 2012

After the fun some mates and I had in the Blue Mountains a few months back, I was keen to get back out there again and explore a bit more. After the huge response to the last drive day that we advertised on the OZRS forum (forty-plus cars, for those who missed […]

All French Car Day – 15 July 2012

All French Car Day – 15 July 2012

The annual French Car Day was on at Silverwater Park on Sunday 15th July. The usual collection of historic Renaults, Citroens and Peugeots were mixed with newer variants of these marques and older models from now defunct manufacturers like Simca. The sound of a piano-accordion filled the air, the day […]
