Verve Rally’s Spanish Adventure from London to Ibiza includes driving through the changing landscape of Spain – Cantabria, Picos de Europa, San Glorio Pass, wine regions, an enchanting 13th century cisterian monastery converted into a 5* thermal spa hotel and the ancient city Toledo set high above the plains of Castile-La Mancha. After another epic drive to Valencia our cars are loaded onto an enclosed transporter bound for London while we fly to the picturesque island of Ibiza for our last night. It’s an island that caters to all, offering the best parties for the young at heart or relaxed island beauty for a slower pace and chill time after the rally.

It’s official: Porsche’s mad prototype has gone around the Nordschleife quicker than anything.
Last year, I wrote a story about Stefan Bellof’s 6:11.13 Nürburgring lap time set back in 1983 in a Porsche 956. I said it was a record that would remain unchallenged unless Porsche took its 919 LMP1 car to the ‘Ring. That’s exactly what it’s done. Running a 5:19.55 around the famous Nordschleife, the Porsche 919 Evo driven by Timo Bernhard just obliterated the all-time record.
That’s 51.58 seconds faster than Bellof’s time, which is almost hard to believe … More
