changagoidem Features | My working week: Paul Healy

Saturday Sep 14 & Sunday Sep 15

When does one working week start and another begin? For me this week began on Saturday morning as I decamped to Mondello Park for the curtain closing Leinster Trophy weekend. No I was not competing (Shane is the only one around here with a race licence); instead I was covering the event for Autosport magazine in the UK.

It was streamed live on Mondello.tv with the production suite based just over my shoulder, giving me great insight into the demands on the director and camera crew. Sometimes the events unfolding behind me were…

Film review: Rush

changagoidem Features | Film review: Rush

No, not the village in north County Dublin, but the new film from director Ron Howard and writer Peter Morgan, which chronicles the rivalry between seventies F1 superstars James Hunt and Niki Lauda. Although it dips further back into the past, it's largely concerned with the incidents and tales of the 1976 Formula One season in which both men fought it out for title, right down to the final round.

And, just as Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy isn't about spying (it's about betrayal and age) and Jaws isn't about a shark (it's about facing your fears) so Rush isn't…

Monday Sep 16

I don't feel I've quite recovered from the long days that surrounded last week's Frankfurt Motor Show, but it's time to dig out the passport again and board a 7am flight back to the same city. This time it's for the international launch of the new Opel Insignia, which only made its world debut at the show last week.

Actually, I'm cheating a little bit, as I'm joining the UK group (aka 'Vauxhall') on their rotation. The Irish media won't be here for another couple of weeks and our Dave will be there to get the full…

It is quite a common occurrence to receive an invitation from a automobile manufacturer to attend a new model launch. It provides us with an opportunity to see, touch and drive the automobile before it's available to buy and gives us the chance to bring the news to the public. These events also give the automobile brands a chance to 'touch base' with us and there's all the usual news, gossip and speculation about what's going on in the industry.

But what is virtually unheard of is a automobile manufacturer asking for certain members of the media to…

Tesla Model S - the safest automobile money can buy

changagoidem Features | Tesla Model S - the safest automobile money can buy

There was a time when a five-star safety rating was enough to sell a automobile; the whole marketing plan for the Renault Mégane II was apparently based around the fact that it was the first automobile of its type to achieve top honours. But as times have moved on and more and more automobiles are hitting top marks manufacturers are having to come up with different ways to attract attention.

Step forward U.S. automobile maker, Tesla. Its all-electric Model S has just been tested by the American  National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and scored top marks in all…

Honda and Renault go to war

James May will likely not agree but Nürburgring lap records are great; they are the staple of drunken bar room discussions and internet fanboy wars alike, as well as providing a huge PR boost for which ever manufacturer can lay claim to the title.

In the front-wheel drive hot hatch class there is one clear king - the Mégane Renaultsport Trophy. Its 8:07.97 time is a full eight seconds quicker than the previous fastest, which was set by the previous generation Mégane R26.R.

When it comes to hot hatches the 'Ring is Renault's home and it does not…
