The Goodwood Revival has become one of the biggest historic motorsport events in the world, staged at the spiritual home of British motor racing and attended by sell-out crowds in period dress. The three-day festival takes a step back in time, celebrating the heyday of racing and recapturing the romance and glamour of a bygone age.

Silverstone Classic With Freddie Hunt

Void of today's circus antics of fuel, tyre and driver bureaucracies, historic racing is always about speed, tactics and performance of the car. There is overtaking a plenty, there is room for error and there is total professionalism, perhaps because these cars are privately owned and cost a small fortune.

A Race to Remember

I'm finally back on British soil again after an incredible time at Le Mans! The Eurotunnel was closed on the way back though, so it took us fourteen hours to drive home... which after a 24-hour race is certainly enough driving for me for a while.

My First Taste of Le Mans

After a long old drive, I'm finally here at Le Mans to begin testing ahead of the main event next weekend. The drive took me and the team physio ten hours in total, but luckily I slept for most of it. I guess that makes me pretty bad company to drive with but I have my fair share of driving lined up at the track over the next week so I guess I'm allowed!

Downtime in Cyprus

With the world of racing being so physically and mentally demanding, it's nice to get away from it all - especially before the buzz of Le Mans kicks in. But with just under four weeks until the race, it's still crucial that I keep in shape for when I get back.

This weekend saw me head to Barcelona to tackle the Catalunya circuit for my first race with Arden. You never know what to expect at the start of the season but I was excited nonetheless ahead of the race, the same feeling I had when I made my JOTA debut last week.

What's a Typical Week for a Racing Driver?

What's a typical week for a racing driver? Well, we don't have one! That's part of the reason I love what I do - no two days have to be the same. 5th January and that's it, Christmas is over, goodbyes to the family and straight on a plane! First up it was off to compete in the Asian Le Mans series, then to Dubai for the annual Dubai 24hour and then to Kuala Lumpur.

It's Time for the EU to Take F1 Competition Seriously

It is time for F1 to return to their former reward systems that gave money to teams based on how they perform on the track. This is the only way to protect the jobs of those brilliant innovators working for the teams and the integrity of a globally loved sport. It is also the only way to ensure that the many highly-skilled jobs and technological breakthroughs associated with F1 here in the South East, continue.

Why McLaren Should Have Opted for Youth Over Jenson Button

Time will tell if Jenson can take it to Alonso, the best driver ever in the modern era in my opinion. I think Jenson might find himself having a tough year, being constantly beat by someone who is much better than him.
