• The Rescogs Guide to Winter Biking

    Riding a motorcycle in Winter happens for a variety of reasons. For some of us, the lack of a car or car license makes it a necessity. Scottie went through almost 20 years relying solely on two-wheeled transport, come rain, wind, sleet and snow. For others, it’s still worthwhile to avoid the endless traffic jams and the joys of public transport. But it isn’t all doom and gloom when the days get shorter, especially if you do it right.

    Good Reasons to Ride in Winter:

    • A dry, sunny Winter day is awesome. A dry, sunny Christmas day is even better, as most car drivers (And law enforcement operatives) seem to either be in front of the TV or in the pub. Which means empty roads away from town centres.
    • You’ll still be sharp come Spring, rather than spending the first couple of weeks getting used to being back on a bike.
    • You’ll also build up a good feeling of smug superiority over fair weather riders, and endless tales of Winter riding to bore them with when you speak to them.
    • Winter Hacks: A chance to pick up something different and cheap, and then abuse it.
    • Winter kit: It gets better, and cheaper every year.
    • You might have to be a bit more careful, but you’ll still get there faster without having to worry about traffic jams.

  • Bugatti Veyron 16.4 vs Rimac Concept_One

    Watch petrolhead peer Lord Pembroke’s Bugatti Veyron and Mate Rimac’s Concept_One go head-to-head on track.

    Lord Pembroke can’t resist a challenge, so when the chance came to pitch his pride and joy against the latest technological tour de force from Croatia – the Rimac Concept_One electric supercar – he didn’t have to think twice.

    The founder of the Wilton Classic & Supercar show – which relaunches this year as the UK’s most prestigious and exclusive annual supercar and classics gathering – swapped cars with Rimac’s official test driver, Miroslav Zrncevic.

    “Looking forward to the technologies driving future performance will be one of the most fascinating elements of the new Wilton Classic & Supercar event,” says Lord Pembroke, “and we wanted to get to know our new friends at Rimac – builders of the world’s fastest accelerating supercar – as part of that journey of discovery.

    “It’s fair to say the Wilton team returned from Croatia having been blown away by the technology built into the Concept_One, and awed by the single-minded dedication of the man behind it. Now we can’t wait to share some of that Rimac magic at our new event on June 3-4.”

    A Brief Guide for a First-Time Car Buyer

    For a first-time buyer, the prospect of buying a car can be daunting. With so much choice on the market and many finance options to choose from, it’s difficult to know where to start when buying your first car.

    We understand that a car can be a big expense, so here are three things you should consider before making your purchase.

    New or Used?

    The first thing you should think about is whether you want a new or used car. Used cars are often the more affordable choice for first-time buyers, but it depends what you’re looking for in a car. Consider what you’ll be using your new purchase for and whether cost or reliability is the most important factor for you.

    Don’t write off the option of a new car. Although you many think they aren’t financially valuable, if you do your research, you will be likely to find low-rate finance deals that could be within your budget.

    With a new car, you won’t have to experience roadside breakdowns or costly repair bills. Many also have improved safety features that can aid you with driving, such as electronic stability control, back-up cameras and sensors, park assist and lane departure warnings.

    How to Pay

    Many people choose to buy a used car so they can pay for it outright, which is perhaps the most cost-effective way to buy a car. However, if you can’t afford to do this then there are many finance options available, such as hire purchase or a car lease, which allow you to make fixed monthly payments on your car.

    Put some research into the finance options available and weigh up the pros and cons of each to decide which is best for your financial situation.

    Find the Best Deal

    Research has shown that different seasons can affect the price of a car. The best deals are often found at the end of the year, during the festive season. This period is in the middle of registration plate changes and it is also the best time to negotiate a good deal as car dealers will be trying to reach their quarterly sales targets.

    Don’t forget to look online when you’re searching for the best deals on your new car. Dealers such as Unbeatable Car have an extensive collection of new and used cars that can be viewed online and you can also check whether you are eligible for finance on their website.

    By following our three tips, you can take your first step on your journey to buying your first car. Whether you decide to buy a new or used car, you will be able to find a good deal if you take your time to put in the research and consider the season that you make your purchase.
