Sunday Oct 13

Once again my working week begins on a Sunday as I make my way to Mondello Park for the end of season 'Fun Races'. As non-championship rounds at the end of a long season these events can usually throw up a few surprises, both in the results and the entry list. Ever see a Toyota Corolla from the mid-nineties race against a Honda-powered Lotus Elise?

As the schedule is not as packed as a normal race weekend my Autosport reports are finished at a remarkably reasonable hour - just in time for Love/Hate in fact!…

Despite it being the sort of automobile that shouldn't even be on my radar, I was a little bit sad to be handing back the Citroen C4 Picasso that I'd spent the previous seven days with. I was massively impressed with the automobile's interior design, which is something that I think many other manufacturers should go and take a look at to see how cool can be done. On the upside, I'm collecting a Volvo V40 T4 Polestar, which has potential to be rather interesting.

At the recent BMW i3 launch in Amsterdam I had dinner with a number of BMW executives and foreign journalists, all of whom spoke in German, but would occasionally pop up with a question in English to get me someway involved. One of those questions was what I thought of the i3 - having driven it all day?

In between mouthfuls of sea salad (fancy sea weed really) I responded that it did not feel special. Save for the noise of cutlery dropping the room went very silent, but there was a reason I had chosen that response.

An early start this morning to catch a flight to Amsterdam for the BMW i3 launch - that of the actual production model you can go out and buy next month. This is a automobile we (and the rest of the world) have been waiting a long time for so I am really looking forward to the trip - will it be just another electric automobile or will BMW engineering nous make it different?

As I am one of the first…

Mondays, as you may have gathered from our wittering, is the day most Irish motoring journalists change their test automobiles, so it's often a hectic day. This week things were made a little easier for me as Paul dropped 'my' Citroen C4 Picasso back and left me a black Toyota Corolla for the week. Automotive Team, the excellent logistics company employed by some of the distributors, also deliver a gleaming orange BMW Z4.

Having not made it to the international launch myself, this was my first chance…

Winter driving tips time again

changagoidem Features | Winter driving tips time again

Nights closing in? Check. Cloud and rain where once there was endless blue? Check. A crisp frost on the ground where hitherto was only a soft dew? Check. Ah, good. each of the winter clichés have arrived on time and we can now settle into the freeze-fest that awaits.

Now, you would think that spending all our lives on a damp, cold, wet rock sticking out of the North Atlantic would have been adequate preparation for driving in the winter, but for some cussed reason, we Irish seem to think that we're actually a lost band of Mediterraneans, so we do…
