We need your help!

If you’ve listened to the latest episode of The Engine Room, you know what we’re up to.

If you haven’t, then please give us a dig out with something fun.
We’re compiling a special Christmas video, made up of people wishing us, and whomever else you’d like of course, a Happy Christmas.

So, if you’re up for it, pop your phone in front of your face, record a quick video and send it to theengineroompodcast@gmail.com.

Dropbox/WeTransfer links are cool too. In fact, they’re even better!

We’ve already cornered a number of our celeb mates but it’s you guys that will make the video work so, please, do it and do it now!

Merry Everything!

Dave, Steve & Dave

Dave Moore in SUPERCARS!

Who’s a lucky boy, then?!?

That’s right, me! (Dave Moore, by the way)

Meteor were launching their 4G superfast network so they decided to give me a go in some supercars. Interestingly, I didn’t say no.

When I got there, there were four of the world’s best supercars:

McLaren’s MP4 12C:


Ferrari 458 Italia Spider:


Aston Martin Vanquish:


and Lamborghini’s Gallardo Superleggera:


When I knew I was going to get the chance to drive one, I initially wanted the McLaren for its exclusivity.

Once I got there, I knew it had to be the Lamborghini. It’s INSANE!

So, thanks to the lads at http://www.supercar-experiences.com/, we were loaded into our respective go-fast machines and we drove around Dublin’s southside for an hour.

It. Was. Epic.

Originally, we had planned to swap over halfway through and enjoy another one but, frankly, I just didn’t want to get out of the Lambo.

I’m sure each one has its merits and you can see how nice it is to be in the Gallardo:

At the end, I did manage to do the all-important Boot Test:

Andalusian Driving Heaven!

Buenos dias!

Moore here, from ludicrously sunny Spain.

I spend a fair bit of time here, in Andalusia. My wife’s parents live here, in  a place called Alhaurin El Grande, which is a mountain town. Famed for its beaches on the Costa del Sol, Andalusia’s mountain ranges are breathtaking and, in my opinion, even more beautiful.

My brother-in-law lives right on the coast and, to get to his house, I get to drive over this AMAZING road:


It winds and twists and rises and falls by thousands of metres. It is really special.Road03Sml

I never tire of it, even in a hideous, under-powered, diesel-engined family barge.Road01Sml

If the road ever gets boring to drive on, which it doesn’t, I just look left or right and see things like this.Sunset01Sml


Can’t wait to be back on the M50 next week. 😐
