About James Ewing

Cars are my passion in my business and private life. I run James Ewing Limited - International Brokers of Collectors Cars and I also have a successful restoration business. I navigate on classic rallies in the UK and europe and in my time have competed in many types of motorsport. At home we have an interesting collection of micro/mini cars, a 1958 Renault 4cv, 1962 Fiat 600d Multipla and a 1967 Subaru 360. All in all I spend most of my time 'dickingaroundwitholdcars'

London-Lisbon day 9

With one day to go the screws were tightened. Fast regularities with accurate navigation required all day. The morning was good with only a few seconds dropped and after lunch an eight control section over 45 mins was epic. Our … Continue reading

London-Lisbon day 8

Another fantastic day on some of Europe’s best and deserted roads. The weather has been sunny and the scenery outstanding. The rallying went particularly well with very few penalties. We had film cameraman Gary’s go-pro in the car for one … Continue reading
