Andy Josselyn – serial Alfa, old car and road trip tragic, the Sports Car Safari OG. It was on a road trip through Virginia that the very name of our magazine was first coined, and this story is told in SCS Issue 01. Andy dials...
The SCS Podcast is back for 2021! Luke and Andrew catch up after a few weeks’ off to discuss plans for 2021, what’s happening in sunny South Australia, and Andrew shares the story of how the SCS Boxster became somewhat submerged over the Christmas period…
Karl von Sanden (@_kvs_) from Adelaide Tarmac Pacenotes (@adelaidetarmacpacenotes) will be joining us tonight for the SCS Podcast, getting underway in a little over an hour. (9pm Adelaide, 930pm Melb/Syd) // Got a rally or pacenote question for KVS? Pop it in the comments and...
// We’ve got some big news – there’s a new classic Alfa in Luke’s (@boxr33) garage, and Issue 04 of Sports Car Safari is here! // Co-editor’s Luke and Andrew (@agr_andrew) will run through the new mag and what you can expect – for now,...
SCS Podcast time! We’re changing it up a little since Andrew is stuck on the Isle of Wight with terrible internet. It’s been a huge fortnight and Luke (@boxr33) and Andrew (@agr_andrew) will catch up on a Friday night to run through what’s been happening....
SCS Podcast time! Tonight (yes, on a Wednesday!) we’re talking land speed racing, and more specifically, Speed Week at South Australia’s Lake Gairdner. It’s not simple to even get to the Bonneville of Down Under – you need a four wheel drive and several days,...

It’s SCS Podcast time! Co-Editors Luke (@boxr33) and Andrew (@agr_andrew) will be discussing @salonpriveuk in detail. There aren’t many events like this on earth, and the sheer quality and quantity of important cars is incredible. We’ll run through the hits, the few misses, and everything...
This week, Co-Editors Luke (@boxr33) and Andrew (@agr_andrew) will he joined by friend of SCS, Zander (@boys_own_garage) to shoot the shit. We’ll cover a lot – why was this F40 abandoned in a park outside @concours_of_elegance the other week? Are DSG-farts cool? Would the #shitboxster make a good budget...

Take two! Last week’s podcast with Sydney’s Nick Blunck (@neunelfers) suffered some teething online software troubles out of our control, but Nick’s back tonight and we’ll continue on where we left off! // Nick’s famous ‘Blunck Bug’ was immortalised by @carbyt for a range of...
SCS Podcast time! We go live at 8pm – our co-editors @boxr33 @agr_andrew will discuss SA Rally, driving Testarossas, classic hip hop and why we aren’t driving the #shitboxster to Lake Como tonight.
A local SA rally focussed show tonight – among the truly bizarre things to happen in 2020, Round One of the South Australian Rally Championship kicking off in mid-August is on the lower end of the scale. But as the community decamps and heads down to the South East, we’ll briefly check in with gravel rally identity Andrew Admiraal (@andrewadmiraal) to learn about how the 2020 championship will look, and to hear about his event, next month’s @agisport Adelaide Hills Rally, which will be Round One of the Australian National Championship. There haven’t been many opportunities to get your motorsport kicks this year, but these two events in quick succession will provide a rare reprieve.
On this week’s SCS Podcast we’ll be sitting down with Sydney’s Ryan Curnick (@_obrut_) for a far-reaching chat that will undoubtedly prove one of our most fascinating yet. Ryan is one of the most experienced and well-known Porsche identities in the country, and has owned, raced, restored, maintained, built, cruised, bought, sold and cherished more air-cooled 911s than most of us have sat in. You’ll remember his famous RallyCab from SCS Issue 02, but this is really just the tip of a very big iceberg that extends far beyond the air-cooled Porsche world. // American muscle, Italian exotica, the subtlety of modification, when you should modify and when you should preserve and how to buy and sell are all topics we’ll cover, as well as Ryan’s latest and yet to be announced venture.
SCS Podcast time! A bit of a different one tonight – it’s a crew show and we’ll be joined by two of our UK mates, Andrew Metcalfe (@andcalfe) and George Cheetham (@georgecheetham), joining the chat from London. There’s plenty to discuss. For starters, this weekend’s F1 British Grand Prix and, err, next weekend’s second F1 British Grand Prix. Andrew M was the original Boxster owner so we’ll undoubtedly touch on those (again) as well as our shared affliction for old Italian cars, and George’s shouty Clio Renaultsport 200 will get a mention. For work, George is part of the travelling Moto GP circus and is next week heading to a race for the first time in months, and we’ll discuss how Moto GP is adapting in the new normal. 
SCS Podcast time! It’s fair to say that Jordy (@bespokemotorcars) works incredibly hard to play hard at the top-tier of Australian motorsport heritage, and over the past years he’s built up an incredible wealth of experience in owning, driving, buying, selling, running, rebuilding and restoring some of the most incredible road and racing cars to grace our shores. // Jordy has been a wonderful supporter of SCS – we had him on Episode 2 of the podcast discussing Jaguar XJR-15s and his Murcielago R-GT is on the cover of Issue 03, and this week Jordy is back to discuss GT3 and production-based supercar racing in depth. We’ll learn how GT3 cars have evolved over their lifespan, why today’s GT4 cars are closer to the true spirit of GT3, and how the whole ‘race cars on the road’ thing is impossible with today’s cars. Jordy will use his experience owning a DBRS9, the Murcie and a 458 GT3 to illustrate his points.
It’s been a huge week at Sports Car Safari, and we’ll debrief what’s happened. First up, SCS Issue 03 is printed and ready, and we’ll share how you can get your hands on a copy! Second, and (perhaps) more frighteningly, we’re launching our first SCS Project Car! They say that there’s no such thing as a cheap Porsche. And that, like a boat, the two happiest days of cheap Porsche ownership are the day you buy it and the day you sell it. Our co-editor, @agr_andrew, has put all that commonsense advice aside and has bought a (very) cheap 986 Boxster that needs a few things. But hold your sniggers, there’s a lot to love here, and the story of how he came to find and then buy it is a good one. We’ll be taking SCS readers along for the ride in the coming months – will it end up with a glorious Swiss road trip, or a failed IMS bearing, a blown engine and dashed dreams? Let’s find out!
on the podcast we have Adelaide’s Oscar Redfearn (@oscarredfearn), photographer and Nissan GT Academy finalist.In 2016, Oscar was one of six Australians to be selected to head to Silverstone in the UK to compete in the GT Academy Race Camp, which included on and off track challenges, fitness and written tests, interviews, and plenty of time on the famous Stowe circuit (and other nearby venues) in Caterhams, buggies, single seaters and various Nissan models. The ultimate prize was a race seat in an international endurance race (such as the Dubai 24hrs), and for a guy who started all this off playing his PS3, he came exceptionally close to it.
This week on the podcast we’re joined by the Adelaide Rally’s Tim Possingham. At such a fascinating time for motorsport. After several months on pause, Tim’s tarmac rally events will be some of the first to return and Tim will join us to chat about what we can expect in the second half of 2020. We’ll also delve into his motorsport background, which started by racing rotaries in the early days, success in a blisteringly quick R32 GTR, a dabble into an Audi Quattro, and his current Evo 8 tarmac car.
on the podcast we’re joined by Bauer Media photographer @alastairbrook – you’ve seen his work gracing the covers and pages of @wheelsaustralia@streetmachinemag @whichcar@4x4australiamag and we’re going to geek out on photography, Monterey Car Week, French hot hatches, and whatever else comes our way.
Anyone with a trace of wanderlust won’t want to miss this one. Drew Milne rode his Vespa PX from Adelaide, Australia to London over a two year period, and he’ll be joining us to chat about his epic adventure, dubbed Vescapade. We featured Drew’s trip in the first issue of Sports Car Safari, but it was impossible to capture everything in our short story (Drew wisely chose to tell a few choice tales in detail), but in podcast form we’ll be able to delve into much more detail. The Vespa is now on display at the National Motor Museum Birdwood and the story has us all dreaming of hitting the road just as soon as we can, it’s going to be a brilliant chat.
Karl von Sanden joins us and talks all things Honda S2000s, tarmac rallying a Porsche 944, flipping fun cars, analogue photography, watches
