What happens when you race a little Mazda MX-5 Miata against a Lamborghini, Porsche and other supercars? You get a viral smash hit – the most popular film ever to be distributed on Mazda Canada’s YouTube channel. If you look closely you’ll see me in the Porsche. That’s one of the perks of being the producer!
Zoom has won Best Automotive Title at the International Content Market Awards. It’s the second year in a row that Zoom Zoom has won and the third time since we launched in 2007. I think that’s unprecedented.
Zoom-Zoom is up for no less than five Digital Magazine Awards – including another nod for me as Editor of the Year. That’s four ed of the year nominations in 2012. More fingers crossed…
It’s that time of the year again and the nominations are in. I’m on the shortlist for two BSME Editor of the year awards (Customer Magazine and Digital Customer Magazine) and for the CMA’s Editor of the Year. Zoom-Zoom is also up for Best Automotive Title and Best International Title and our Wall of Death film is up for Best Use of Video Content. Fingers crossed.
This is what happens when you pit a Mazda CX-5 against some of the world’s top paddlers. Another one of my ambitious and adrenalin-packed ideas…
It’s probably my most ambitious and crazy idea yet – putting a modern car on a Wall of Death. But thanks to Dynomyte Dave and the crew at Demon Drome we pulled it off. The film of this epic stunt went viral with 500,000 views in the first week. You can watch it – and the making of – below.
One Mazda CX-5, one lap of Iceland and one interactive video of the experience.
After a short 2,000km drive from Brisbane to Cairns in a behemoth RV with my family (and after selling my beloved 1972 Bay Window VW to fund the trip) I shared my experience with the readers of The Telegraph. It made the cover of the paper’s motoring section and two pages inside. If only I’d thought of writing this before the trip!
