A day in the country Among the green fields of Hertfordshire there’s a little farm with a fine harvest on show I had meant to stop in at DK Engineering for ages, but here’s a funny thing about a top Ferrari shop – it’s always so packed with high-end machinery that if that Testa Rossa you meant to have a squint at has moved out, there will be an interesting 750 Monza or 250TdF in its place.

Not many racing drivers have mixed competing in Grands Prix with sailing trips across the Atlantic. And that’s before you factor in this laid-back German’s sports car successesBy Simon Taylor For most of 2009, a quarter of the drivers on the Grand Prix grids were from Germany. And, thanks to the long reign of Michael Schumacher, that country is statistically one of the more successful in Formula...
