Finally a longer trip in the MGB GT and something a bit different to my normal videos as I go on a mini-adventure to the Brecon Beacons in Wales! In this video I drive a couple of awesome roads and camp overnight (in November, not sure what I was thinking) but only use the things I’ve brought with me in the car including food, drink, accommodation and toilet facilities! I had a great time making this video and I hope this is the start of an exciting new direction for the channel, hope you enjoy!

Quick update on my MGB GT after having it back for a while including some highlights from my trip to the Goodwood Members Meeting. Only a short vid making the most of a nice day but I’ll be back very soon with a longer trip in the MGB GT which I’m very excited about!
My MGB GT is back after a month away having various bits and pieces done to it. The result is a transformed car which goes, steers and stops more precisely and more quietly! I had the car on the rolling road to see how it was performing and I was pleased with the results showing a smooth power and torque curve and numbers consistent with a lightly modified B-series! Many thanks to CCK Historic, I will be back in the future!
This is the second part of my weekend at the Goodwood Revival 2021. The video covers the Saturday where I was joined by my family (hence why there isnt much footage) and the Sunday where I got a ride in a helicopter and watched the headline RAC TT race featuring Cobras and E-Types driven by a few famous drivers including Jensen Button and Martin Brundle! Great weekend and very much looking forward to next year!
The first part of my weekend at the Goodwood Revival 2021! This video covers the first day (Friday) at the event which hasn’t been held for a couple of years due to Covid. However, as expected it was just as good as I remember with a great atmosphere and amazing cars such as Jaguar E-Types, AC Cobras, classic Aston Martins and Ferraris amongst others going wheel to wheel on the motor circuit. Highlights on the Friday were the RAC TT practice and the Stirling Moss Memorial race as well as a couple of celebrity spots at the Earls Court display.
Cinematic re-hash of my trip to the Lake District in the Jaguar XK8! There is some new footage in there but mainly just a highlight reel of the longer video I made a few months ago, let me know if you enjoy this video and if you want to see ‘cinematic’ versions of past and future trips!
Next up for the Lotus Esprit S2 restoration is getting the fuel tanks out. This was easier than expected but still had its challenges with 30 year-old fuel going all over my driveway! Thinking about the next steps of the restoration it’s clear I need to find a dedicated space so going to pause the Esprit resto for the moment and resume when I have a garage/workshop to kick things into a higher gear and bring you more consistent and higher quality footage!
As a bonus video after my trip to Bicester Heritage I tracked down the ‘Harry’s Garage’ test route to drive it in my MGB GT! It was great fun but quite busy since it was the weekend, respect to Mr Metcalfe for thrashing some pretty powerful stuff down these country lanes!
Quick video on my visit to the Bicester Heritage Scramble Event June 2021. As with previous Scrambles the variety of cars was great and even with COVID restrictions in place it was still a very popular event and a great place to visit, I’ll be back again next time!
Once again back in my MGB GT! This time I’m preparing the car to go to the first Bicester Heritage Scramble event since beginning of last year and a few things need sorting before making the 150ish mile round trip.
