HAPPY NEW YEAR. Much of the very end of 2014 was spent on the water covering the SOLAS Big Boat Challenge, the Extreme Sailing Series, and most excitingly the start of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race for which I was commissioned by Invictus and Rewind Magazines. The first big event I will be covering in 2015 will be the 40th Anniversary of Retromobile in Paris in the first week of February. Seeing the incredible barn find collection of 60 cars including the ex Alain Delon Ferrari 250GT SWB California Spider to be auctioned there on February 6th should be pretty exciting. And talking of auctions I am very pleased to announce that I will be running the Motorclassica Auction on behalf of Theodore Bruce Auctioneers & Valuers again in 2015 and also in the following two years following our recent appointment by the organisers until 2017.
