With its fine blend of mechanics, vintage culture, surfing, art, and music, Wheels and Waves has become one of the most anticipated events in the custom European motocycling scene in only a few years. A place where today’s top builders and manufacturers, along with other major players in this new wave scene converge to meet and share their common passion.

While we're well-acquainted with Goodwood and Silverstone, the Salon Privé is rapidly gaining in popularity. It is held on a picturesque estate at Syon House, Brentford, which provides an excellent surrounding atmosphere. The show's overall feel is much different to most as it's a relaxing event, one can happily wander around the gardens with a glass of Pommery champagne while seeing and hearing some of the rarest cars on earth–not a bad way to spend a day.

Exceptional, Classic British Racing

Exceptional, Classic British Racing

In late July, I was lucky enough to witness classic car racing for the first time. The Silverstone Classic is a massive gathering of classic car lovers from around the UK, and I don't think there's a better introduction to the spectacle of vintage metal anywhere else in the world.

If you don't know that two weeks ago was Monterey Car Week, then you just haven't been paying attention. We've shared a few stories covered from different angles and frankly, the week is just a cavalcade of events showcasing amazing cars that, as my esteemed colleague Mr. Jonathan WC Mills explained, make you say, "Look at that!" But the one thing that we haven't really discussed is the sheer amount of people that show up...

A First-Timer's Pilgrimage to Laguna Seca

Full caveat, I've never been to Monterey Car Week. Nor, before this last week, to Laguna Seca. I realize this is a blot against my credentials as a lover of all things automotive, but I'm quite pleased to have scratched the event off my bucket list. I'm also happy to report that the week more than lived up to my expectations, in particular the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion...

Pebble Beach's Best in Show Winner Represents a Monumental Shift

Pebble Beach's Best in Show Winner Represents a Monumental Shift

In many ways, this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was just like every year prior. The blue-blazer-wearing, straw-hatted crowd strolled in as classical music gently wafted over the audience and manicured lawn. The OEMs occupied the lower-level suites in the lodge that allowed their guests to sit in style and avoid sullying their Tod’s. The coffee was warm and unburned, landscape foggy grey, and cars buffed to perfection...

The sun has now truly set on the Velodrom Millenáris, if the rumors are true. Some say the track will be demolished soon to make way for a modern sport arena and this would imply the end of this event. But we simply can’t afford to lose our small scale Goodwood Revival, as there is no other event in our country where anyone can get a taste of rare historical machines in an appropiate background.

Last year, as I walked back to my car following the Pebble Beach Concours, having lost count of all the amazing cars I'd passed in the mulch-covered parking lots alone, it occurred to me that someone could easily spend the entirety of Monterey Car Week without attending a single event and still get their fill of an incredible range of cars.

The UK's biggest historic racing event took place during July's last weekend. The Silverstone Classic, winner of the 2013 Motorsport Event of the Year, includes over twenty races and a thousand cars spanning five decades of racing. From pre '53 sports cars such as the Jaguar D-Type and Aston Martin DB2 all the way to the newly-formed '90s GT Legends featuring the Ferrari F40 LM and several Mclaren F1 GTRs.

Blasting Around the Moscow Classic Grand Prix

By Andrey Smazhilo / 11 Aug 2014 / 1 Comment Read More

It's hard to spot a classic car on Moscow's streets for many reasons, one of which is the weather being too unstable and destructive to old metal. Fortunately, classic car owners start clubs and do go racing. This year a three-stage championship for classic cars, called the Moscow Classic Grand Prix, took place on Moscow Raceway–a racetrack on which a stage of DTM is also held...

Many are present including Porsche 911SCs, Opel Asconas, even vaunted Lancias such as the Stratos, 037, and the insane Lancia Delta S4 Group B have gathered. But at this early stage, it’s just a pleasant stroll to loosen up the pistons and gears before the weekend’s Special Stage.

This Is Why the Le Mans Classic Is a Premier Vintage Race

This Is Why the Le Mans Classic Is a Premier Vintage Race

By Petrolicious Productions / 9 Jul 2014 / 3 Comments Read More

Really, it's a pretty simple formula: take a group of exciting, historic race cars add a classic, barely-quieted track, and 100,000 rabid fans and you have magic. The traditional Le Mans standing start is included for older groups too. What's that? Before 1970, the drivers and cars were inconveniently placed across the track from one another forcing racers to run across the track to their cars to start.
