The only thing louder than the paint is the R1 motor on full song... It certainly feels like the classic car world has come alive this month, and we‘ve been covering some miles. You’ll find reports from Brooklands Mini Day, the NEC Resto Show, the 77th Members Meeting at Goodwood, the AGBO Stages and we even got along to Bromyard Speed Festival to enjoy their recreation of the heist from the Italian Job which was wonderfully surreal and great fun.And of course, as the show season starts, we get to see the great projects that people have been working on over the winter.

To when he was a very young child in fact - a time when he used to spend many an hour playing in his grandfather’s Minis. “My grandad and I were very close,” explains Gary. “He had lots of Minis over the years, and I spent hours in them, imagining I was driving, hence my interest.
