Grand Prix Historique, Monaco

What is it about Monaco? The high-rise apartments have trashed the old Victorian elegance, the streets and traffic are brain-fryingly chaotic and the almost palpable smell of money leaves a vulgar aftertaste.

Bracing Spa waters

Spa-Francorchamps. With Audi. For the 24 hours. It doesn't get a lot better. There is something so exciting about driving down to the Ardennes in the days leading up to a big race at this wonderful circuit.
