RED...RED EVERYWHERE

Some people would travel the world to see some of the most iconic cars at museums, race tracks or private collections, but here in Northern Ireland - we just attend a local school's charity event on a Sunday morning where casually parked one would find a collection of cars that even Mr. Clarkson himself would be jealous of.

SUPERCAR SUNDAY

SUPERCAR DREAM RIDES SUPERCAR SUNDAY

NOT ALL HEROS WEAR A CAPE

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis 


Whether you're into cars or not, we can all agree that supercars are beautiful and let's be honest - who wouldn't like to own one. Sadly not many of us will ever be able to afford one; but luckily for us there are many amazing and selfless people in Northern Ireland who own one, and would gladly take you out for a spin in it, and all that for a great cause.

IRISH MOTOR FESTIVAL 2018

IRISH MOTOR FESTIVAL 2018

SIDEWAYS IS FUN-WAYS

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis 


What gives you the goosebumps, what gets your adrenaline going? For some it may be music for some it may be traveling, for me – it’s the cars. Millions of people worldwide will gladly spend all their spare time and their hard earned money on cars, either to purchase, modify, restore or even just to make them go that extra bit faster. For me seeing cars at a show, go fast around a track, slide sideways at a drifting event or jump high over brows of hill in a rally - is everything. This is car life and this why we do it every weekend over and over again; last weekend was no different.

JDM Car Culture 2018

JDM CAR CULTURE 2018

LITTLE JAPAN OF EUROPE

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


Northern Ireland - better known as the little Japan of Europe.

It truly is, if one judges it by the sheer amount of the high quality Japanese domestic market (JDM) cars located on the Irish island; it is just mind blowing. Once you see past the diabolically modified twincams, vape-surrounded civics and Donegal rally spec’d IS200s, you’ll find thousands of incredible JDM machines here: tasteful Japanese metal from all generations: standard, modified or fully restored classics - we have them all, and it would be a goddamn shame if we wouldn't showcase them. Well, luckily for us there is just an event for this and it’s called – “JDM Car Culture”.

BMW M4 CS

BMW M4 CS

BMW ON A DIET

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis

Performance sports cars have become more expensive, more sophisticated, complicated and confusing than ever before; take the BMW M4 CS for an example: for an equivalent of what used to be a simple middle class affordable BMW sports car (BMW M3), one nowadays would expect to pay up to a jaw dropping £90K. It is an overly complicated, manic, untameable animal, yet unexplainably outstanding car that somehow makes it worth it and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. That is if you can afford it and have the balls to drive it.

GTINI CASTLEWELLAN 2018

GTINI CASTLEWELLAN 2018

SUN, BBQ AND GERMANS

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


"Sun, BBQ and loads of Germans" (cars that is) - this may be the simplest and easiest way to describe what the GTINI's "Castlewellan Show and Shine" event really represents. One of the longest running motoring events in Northern Ireland returned to the forests of Castlewellan on June 30, attracting German vehicle enthusiasts from far and wide, and I was there to cover the event as usual.

A guide to a perfect gentleman’s Sunday morning: wake up early, sneak out from the house, take a car to the Down Royal Racecourse, have a delicious morning coffee, enjoy a full fry breakfast and epic company, then have a proper drive on the way back. Cars and Coffee events are the way to do it - fact!

DUBSHED '18

DUBSHED 2018

SUN'S OUT - CARS OUT

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


Ladies and gents: welcome to the 2018 car-show season opener – GTINI’s “Dubshed”.
The harsh, dark and super extended winter this year provided us with more "garage time", that for petrolheads translated into more time to finish the builds for the upcoming season; and going by the standard demonstrated at Dubshed what a season it's going to be. This was the 9th consecutive year for the all-German car show and the third year at its new home - "Eikon" exhibition centre in Lisburn, Northern Ireland. As usual the event took places over 2 days and attracted thousands of car enthusiasts from both Republic and Northern Ireland as well as UK.

GENEVA INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW 2017

87th GENEVA INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW 2017

THE REAL CARS AND COFFEE EVENT

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis 


If drivers bouncing off the rev limiter for 5 minutes, diffing, screaming stupid phrases like “vtec yo” and massive clouds of vape are annoying you, and put you off from going to car events - congratulations, you’re as old as me and can’t be bothered with that anymore either. Luckily for us there are much more relaxed, "gentlemanish" events out there for grumpy men like us: like one of the world’s most important motor shows – Salon international de l’automobile.
Jacket – check, tie – check, camera – check, Geneva here we go…
