January’s Detroit Motor Show looks set to provide a real kick-start to 2013, with a host of new model premieres from the world’s largest car makers. One of those car makers is Hyundai – the fourth largest car maker and the fastest-growing automotive company by brand.
When the Formula One paddock gathers in Suzuka, Japan on 5th October, the tension will be palpable. Fernando Alonso is running away with the 2012 championship as his McLaren and Red Bull rivals flounder with reliability issues.
Do you remember Ben Southall, the lucky s*d who landed “the best job in the world”? He flew out from UK to Australia in 2009 to begin a work-cation as caretaker of an Australian tropical island, bolstered by a £75,000 salary and use of a luxury beach villa on Hamilton Island, Queensland.

Although it never truly dissappeared, having been adopted by Europe’s historic rallying classes, Michelin is sponsoring a new event that aims to recreate the passion and atmosphere from the adrenaline fuelled 80s and 90s at the UK’s only multi-venue rally for Group B cars.
We’ve teamed up with Michelin in an exclusive competition to give three lucky winners a pair of VIP Hospitality tickets to watch all the action at Wales Rally GB on Saturday 12th November. Saturday will be Day 3 of the rally, which visits the famous Sweet Lamb stage, boasting one of the finest natural spectator areas in the World Rally Championship. With spectacular views, water splashes, jumps and hairpin bends it is bound to be a true crowd pleaser.
Later on this afternoon you’ll be able to answer the question, “Am I as quick as an F1 driver?”, as thousands of gamers compete on Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) against ex-F1 driver David Coulthard, who will be driving a 6.2-litre V8 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG around a real track.
