Bucket List

I decided some years ago to make it my life’s work to attend and thoroughly document all the world’s great motor racing events. This is a rather lofty and self-indulgent ambition – there’s little room for charitable virtue on display, I will admit. However, it affords the opportunity to explore the world, even if that does just mean lots of trips to Florida. If you can suggest any I’ve missed, drop me a line and make me jealous with your own globe-trotting automotive adventures. I reckon this lot should keep me out of mischief for a while anyway.
