There seems to be an obsession with manufacturers to shout about their green credentials, with electric cars generally being designed with unusual shapes and containing countless flashing dashboard additions to admonish you for pressing the throttle too hard. Not at Renault however, where the Fluence ZE is completely… normal.

We make no secret of the fact that we love modern Cadillac’s. While we prefer to mention the BLS only in passing, the larger CTS really is a very well sorted car. Despite its obvious bulk, weighing in at close to 1.8 tonnes, the suspension smooths out the bumps wellContinue Reading

A new model has been added to the Front Seat Driver fleet to act as the sensible family car. Believing in bangernomics, and being huge fans of barges, we eschewed the obvious three year old Astra / Focus choice and went with a 1994 Vauxhall Omega.

After a break from banger rallies in 2011, instead concentrating on other motoring related events, we’ll be back behind the wheel of a sub-£250 car for the very special tenth anniversary running of Staples2Naples.

Roughly speaking, there’s an almost equal split between high speed motorway, twistyContinue Reading

The theme, for there always is one, was ‘Racing Revolutions’, described as quantum leaps that shaped motor sport, although sometimes referred to as an unfair advantage.
