turn, turn, turn

Corners, curves and bends turn otherwise mundane roads into stunning passes that petrolheads add to their bucket lists.Whether short and sharp, long and winding or zigzag, these challenging features also separate the good cars from the truly great ones.

miles nurnberger

WITH a name like “Miles”, it is difficult to imagine Miles Nurnberger doing anything that is not related to automobiles.Having a father who ran a graphic design advertising agency and who loves cars helped.From a young age, the 42-year-old Briton was immersed in the world of design and cars and he started drawing them when he was about seven years old.A chance encounter with some scale models led to the realisation that he could actually design cars as a job. “From that day on, it was what I wanted to do and I am very privileged to still be doing what I was already doing since I was a boy.”Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine that an internship stint while he was still a Transport Design undergraduate…

road and all the rage

(PHOTOS ST LIBRARY) HAVE you noticed that it is much easier to flag down a cab these days?On four separate occasions in the past several weeks, I managed to flag down a taxi within three minutes. That is shorter than the average time it takes for a train to arrive.One time, I walked past someone who was trying to hail a ride on his phone, and hopped into a cab while he was still busy tracking the progress of his ride.There is of course, good reason for this.According to Land Transport Authority statistics, average taxi ridership plunged to 647,000 a day last year (2018) – down from about one million before private-hire operators arrived in 2013.So, despite the taxi population having fallen from a high of 28,000 to 20,000 in…

rite of passage

(PHOTOS 123RF.COM) WE finally took our daughter karting.She first expressed an interest to give it a go when she was six, but due to minimum age and height requirements, we had to put it off for a few years.It reminded me of when I was a teenager anxiously waiting to turn 17 so that I could sit for my Basic Theory test, the first step towards obtaining my driver’s licence.The urge to bring her karting has nothing to do with wanting to groom her into some racing prodigy.It was simply a natural extension of my own passion in cars and motorsport, which I wanted very much for her to experience.It was all she talked about in the days leading up to it. She has always been very enthusiastic when it…
