What a race – from the first corner at the Monza circuit, Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo took the lead and apart from his pit stop was never headed. Congratulation Dan. The 2021 Italian Grand Prix is a major Formula 1 win on your resume. Of course, there were two other highlights
Start to finish, massive Dutch crowds in a sea of orange – Max Verstappen rewarded his home country supporters with a magnificent race from pole position. Frankly, the Silver Arrows team didn’t stand a chance with pure race speed and despite efforts to undercut Verstappen and Red Bull twice, it
It was the wettest of races for the 2021 Belgium Grand Prix at the Spa Circuit this weekend. After 2 laps behind the pace car, Max Verstappen was awarded the race, George Russell for Williams in 2nd and Lewis Hamilton on the third step. Fortunately for the Mercedes AMG team,
Before I read this story from autoweek.com my guess was the podium most expensive cars sold at auction would be a Ferrari. And I was right, but not only did Ferrari hold the coveted number 1 spot, but also took out 10 other places in the top 20, including the
I’ve just purchased a 2017 Range Rover Sport as my personal car and as usual, I’ve gone to the market for a quote on my car insurance For anyone reading my new car reviews on The Car Guy, I always get a quote from at least one of the companies I
Formula 1 welcomed a first-time winner to the top step of the podium when Esteban Ocon, driving for Alpine, overcame the first turn drama to win the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix, his first. Madness ensued with 13 of the 14 remaining cars pitting on the 2nd formation lap leaving Lewis
This is a small update to my recent post on the Kia Niro Hybrid. One of the important reasons that I test drive and review various brands, is to provide an honest opinion on the worthiness of the vehicle. Recently, courtesy of Kia Motors Australia, I reviewed a brand new
As dominant as Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team has been over recent years, it’s looking like its Red Bull’s turn to take the front. Max Verstappen was a class above the rest of the field, even having sufficient room to pit late in the 2021 Austrian Grand
As visually confusing as the Circuit Paul Rickard was for the French Grand Prix was, the Red Bull Ring, in Speilburg Austria is lush and visually magnificent for the 2021 Styrian Grand Prix A purpose built race track, home to the Red Bull Racing Team, the circuit may be short,
What’s the hardest Grand Prix to watch on television? Probably the 2021 French Grand Prix at the Circuit Paul Ricard. With the blue and red lines around the track destined to keep cars from hard-crashing into the barriers, (most of the time) my eyes get heavy and I have to
I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.
I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.
thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .
And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.
So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
