Tassie Trip – Day 2 – 15 May 2011

Day 2 – First Day in Tasmania: North East Loop We arrived as the sun was rising, got the on-board call to head to our vehicles and began unloading. First stop was a quarantine check and then to search for some 98 RON. We weren’t spoiled for choice on a […]

Tassie Trip – Day 1 – 14 May 2011

A Tasmanian road trip had been on the cards for a while, but we finally put our proverbials into gear in early 2011 and worked out how to make it happen. Due to various personal commitments, the middle week of May was the only chance we had for all to […]

AutoFocus Drive Day – 6 March 2016

We’d been planning a drive out west for a few weeks, when one of the AF members suggested we extend the invite outside the AF crew. A few local Sydneysiders we’d become friendly with through social media had expressed interest in joining us for a drive, so we set a […]

275R + 172 – RENAULTsport

275R + 172 – RENAULTsport

The Renaultsport Megane RS 275 Trophy-R is the current FWD king of the ‘ring (though arguable against the new Civic Type R, but you can’t buy those in Aus) and in this particular colour scheme has the whoa to match the go. My silver Clio 172 is 15 years old […]

The Dark One – RS Clio 182 Cup

The Dark One – RS Clio 182 Cup

RENAULTsport Clio 200 A.G.P.

Brett’s owned his 2011 RS Clio 200 Australian Grand Prix edition since new and has slowly added some top quality parts to make it into one of the best Clio IIIs getting around Sydney. It’s recently come off lease and out of warranty, but instead of flicking it like so […]

Renaultsport Night Shoot

Renaultsport Night Shoot

Having had the Clio 200T for over 9 months, I had been meaning to get some decent photos of it. This coincided with a spare evening and a chance phone call with Anthony who told me he’d just washed his Megane 250 that morning. At dinner we brainstormed locations and […]

With five months between drinks, the Sydney OzRenaultsport contingent were eagre for a social drive day and a huge number signed up online to take part. I met with the inner west crew at the usual meeting spot, before making tracks for the official meet up at the Loftus Oval […]

On Sunday 23rd Feb, members of the OzRenaultsport community gathered in a deserted car park in Windsor, for an early morning drive up Putty Road. A group of us that live closer to the city met in Rozelle and set out for Windsor as the sun was rising. I was […]

RS Clio IV 200T vs Ford Fiesta ST – 9 January 2014

RS Clio IV 200T vs Ford Fiesta ST – 9 January 2014

I had the pleasure of shooting a feature for CarAdvice.com.au, for their comparison of the new Renaultsport Clio 200 Turbo EDC and the current darling of the super-mini hot hatches, the Ford Fiesta ST. I was lucky enough to be given the keys to the Fiesta for a few days […]
