Shelsey Walsh Championship Challenge with the Stratstone Club

25 Aug , 2017  

After recently taking the little 106 GTi on it’s first hill climb, an invite popped up in our inbox from Stratstone. It was for a day at the Shelsley Walsh Championship Challenge. Two one day meetings that celebrate 70 years of the British Hill Climb Championship. Date picked, tickets in hand, and we were soon […]

UK Blog Awards – The Final 8

20 Apr , 2017  

  So, we made it through to the final 8 in the UK Blog Awards. Tomorrow we are heading down to London for the awards night, with all fingers crossed. Especially due to our bitter disappointment three years ago. This time we are in the ‘individual’ category. That’s down to the site being primarily run by […]

A satirical wander around the 2017 Geneva Motor Show

9 Mar , 2017   Gallery

So this years Geneva lined up to be a thoroughly boring show, the launches of the decade had happened in 2016 with the Bugatti Chiron and Aston’s DB11 being unleashed. With 2017 looking a bit low on the mega impressive launch list, we hopped on a plane to see if it was the normal stellar […]

Salon Privé Review 2016 – Effortlessly classy

3 Sep , 2016  

As I walk across the back lawn at Blenheim Palace I hear a rumbling in the distance. Slowly creeping around the far corner I spot a jet black Ferrari F50, gently bobbing up and down over the uneven ground.   m   I could only be walking towards Salon Privé, the UK’s most exclusive car […]

Palexpo De Genève: a vast convention centre just ten minutes walk from Geneva airport and for a few manic March days of the year, host to some of the most important new motorcars in the world.  Yes, it’s Geneva International Motor Show time again.

Autosport Show 2016 – Review

23 Jan , 2016  

January. It means one thing, Autosport International. Whilst most forms of motorsport kick off in a few months time we get our appetites whet at the NEC, where every form of four wheeled racing descends for 4 days only. This year was a particular success with both weekend days selling out of tickets by noon, […]



Salon Privé 2015 – New location, better than ever

4 Sep , 2015  

Here at Carwitter we are big fans of Salon Privé. When we heard the show was moving to the grounds of Blenheim palace from the leafy tranquillity of Syon Park we were a little sad. There was something almost magical about driving through the depths of urban London to suddenly arrive – to all intents and […]



Silverstone Classic 2015 Review

1 Aug , 2015  

2015 marked the 25th anniversary of the first running of the now annual “Classic” and was set to be the biggest and best yet. Unfortunately the weather had other plans and most of the three day action took place in (very at times) wet conditions, that failed to dampen the spirits of the 100,000 estimated […]



Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2015 – Review

30 Jun , 2015  

There will be no surprised faces reading how much we love Goodwood FOS. We were but a couple in the droves of benevolent sunburnt zombies in typical English summer wears: grins-a-gurning, snouts and ears tuned to the scents and sounds of the ensemble of all time great automobiles and drivers that affords THE event on […]



Silverstone Classic 2015 – Preview

For the last few events over 1,100 classic and historic race cars have competed in the various events across the weekend and for 2015 looks like it could be even more! This […]



Geneva Motor Show 2015 Review

7 Mar , 2015  

The 2015 Geneva International Auto Show was pegged to be and as you’re likely aware, was, one of the biggest years for the show, which itself is a staple yearly event. This might feel somewhat intimidating from a news and coverage standpoint for two keyboard jockeys from the relatively small online motoring outlet Carwitter. How […]

17 Jan , 2015  

First impressions are very important, so thankfully for the organisers of the first ever London Classic Car Show we couldn’t have been more impressed by theirs. We arrived on Saturday to find the Excel arena a thriving mass of excited people, petrol and beautiful metal.Well, half of it anyway, the West portion of London’s premier […]
