Caramulo is a quiet city on top of a hill in the heart of Portugal. Our friend, Tibor Ács visited its most famous attraction, the local automobile and art museum.


Our good friend, Alexander Matveev recently paid a visit to the Riga Motor Museum in Latvia. For many years it was renowned for its Auto Union Grand Prix race car, but there are many other interesting automobiles and motorcycles being shown.


Valencay is home to one of the most elegant and exquisite castles in the Loire Valley. It was used by Napoleon's foreign minister, Talleyrand in the early 19th century.


From 7 July to 27 August 2017 the Louwman Museum in The Hague will be hosting a ‘McLaren’ exhibition. McLaren’s numerous victories in Formula 1, Indianapolis, Le Mans and in Can-Am races have established its unparalleled reputation in motor racing.
