In case you missed last week’s announcement, Petrolicious is hosting another drive! We’re actually going to come out from behind our computers and cameras, and hit the road for Drive Tastefully: Paramount Ranch presented by Classic Car Capital. Unlike our last event, Drive Tastefully: Malibu, this one is open to everybody (with a vintage car of course).
There were serious on-track battles during each race, and in nearly all of them the race winner would also determine the season’s series winner. The 1960s race was just amazing, with eighty cars lined up at the start of this two-hour race featuring the largest grid of the season for its class. It was a great race but the favorites didn’t win...
A few months ago we hosted our first event, partnering with Hagerty and Autodromo for a fun drive through the hills of Malibu. We kept the numbers small as it was our first time out but we're excited to announce we're doing it again and this time we're opening it up to all Petrolisti with a pre-'75 car or a very significant newer one.
Yesterday, Ferrari North America held a birthday party for itself in Beverly Hills, California. And what a party it was! Virtually one of every significant Ferrari ever built was in attendance. Cars such as the 330 P4, 312PB, a couple of GTOs, Testa Rossas, this year’s Pebble Beach winner, FXXs, and even the first Ferrari in America, a 1948 Barchetta, made glittering Rodeo Drive shine a bit more brightly than usual.

Can there possibly be anything more fashionable than Parisian Chic? Well, yes, there absolutely can be, especially when you combine it with motorcycles. Welcome to the 2014 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride–Paris edition. This year, participation swelled to almost eighteen-thousand riders in 258 cities around the globe, all riding on the same day for the same cause.
There are a few ways to attend the Goodwood Revival, whether in full period regalia or just showing up without honoring the classic nature of the event or in varying degrees somewhere in between. But the most stylish way to attend is on the heels of a multi-day run in your own classic ride.
Walking up from London Bridge tube, it would have been rather impressive for me to have missed the hoards of motorcycles, engines purring, rolling into Borough Market. The underlying growl of over 600 motorcycles arriving could be heard over the usual sounds of the morning London traffic. I had to be careful not to catch myself on various handlebars sticking precariously out into the narrow-formed gangways.
The grounds of the Reggia di Venaria Reale, a royal palace originally built as a hunting castle in 1675 on the outskirts of Torino, Italy by the Duke of Savoy, played host to a very exclusive event over the weekend of September 5-7th.
