Defending champion Ockie Strydom will return for the Porsche Singapore Classic until 24 March at Laguna National Golf Resort Club. PORSCHE SINGAPORE CLASSIC

There’s a misconception that golf is reserved for a particular faction. It’s a fair assumption but not an entirely accurate one. Enter the upcoming Porsche Singapore Classic, which merges top-quality competitive action with delightful sport and lifestyle activities to make the game more accessible to spectators, aspiring players and new followers of golf.

Some key facts to know about the tournament is that this is the opening event of the DP World Tour’s Asian Swing. Players competing include 2019 Open champion Shane Lowry, PGA Tour winner Matthieu Pavon and newly-crowned DP World Tour winner Rikuya Hoshino, among others. The prize purse has increased to USD 2.5 million, and Porsche is offering their latest Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid Porsche as the prize for the professionals and spectators (more on that later) scoring a hole-in-one on Hole 17.

DP World Tour events in Singapore have been pretty significant for Asian talent in particular. Both Arjun Atwal (India) and Zhang Lian Wei (China) made history for being respective country firsts by clinching their Tour titles here. Fellow top regional golfers you’ll catch on the green at the Porsche Singapore Classic include Hoshino of Japan, as well as Kiradech Aphibarnrat (Thailand), Gavin Green (Malaysia), Li Haotong (China) and Kho Taichi (Hong Kong).

Locally, Singaporean Mardan Mamat won the Singapore Masters in 2006 and remains our only winner on the DP World Tour to date. And this year, all three international qualifying spots for the Porsche Singapore Classic were swept by Singaporeans Nicklaus Chiam, Joshua Yap and Irvyn Tan, so keep your eyes peeled for these rising talents at the Laguna National Golf Resort Club.

If you are new to the game, this gateway to sport works for all. At the Porsche Singapore Classic, a unique spectator village located conveniently within the beautiful Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore resort boasts a slew of tantalising food and beverage options as well as entertaining fringe activities. These include putting challenges, shootout games, and the chance for spectators to win a Porsche Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid. Make it a family outing while you’re at it—children aged 16 and below enjoy free entry into the Porsche Singapore Classic, as long as they are accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket.

nd why Porsche?

A natural question but it’s worth noting that the automobile giant has been involved in golf since 1988 through the Porsche Golf Cup, a series of amateur tournaments for Porsche customers. The Porsche Golf Cup has grown to become one of the company’s most successful customer events—over 17,000 Porsche customers recently took part in 261 worldwide qualifying tournaments. Porsche is no stranger to the professional golf scene too as title sponsor to the DP World Tour’s European Open, and is now expanding its presence in the Asian market as Title Partner of the Singapore Classic. Porsche Singapore has also supported the upcoming tournament with a fleet of 20 Taycan shuttle cars for VIP guests and players, and the Porsche 996 Swan will be on display at Laguna National as well.

Which means if you’d like to catch a glimpse of the freshly-launched hybrid Porsche (and who’s walking away with it), watch top golfers in action, or simply kickstart that overdue interest in the sport, wait no more. We’ll see you at the Porsche Singapore

Grunter—A Six-Figure Vincent Rapide Headlining Bonhams

1938 Vincent Series-A Rapide Motorcycle
Countless motorcycle manufacturers popped up in the 1920s and ’30s in Britain, but somehow, none quite as cool as Vincent. High-end speed machines, combining old-school big-displacement twins, monochrome finishes and titillating names like Rapide and Black Shadow, a Vincent V-twin welcomes you into any roundtable of motorcycling, and it’s not hard to see why. A seat rarely opens at the Vincent Owners Club, even more so when you’re talking about an ultra-rare first-series Rapide.

1938 Vincent Series-A Rapide Motorcycle

One of just 79 built, the Series-A Rapide represents Vincent’s first foray into V-twins—an endeavor that established Vincent as the superbike of the day. There are faster Vincents, and on occasion more valuable ones, but the rarity and significance of the Series-A Rapide is hard to overstate. As such, this restored 1938 Rapide highlights Bonhams’ upcoming Spring Stafford Sale with an estimated hammer price of $300,854 to $350,997.

While Vincent didn’t pioneer the V-twin, their execution is at least worthy of an honorable mention. Philip Vincent’s start in motorcycles echoes many of his peers of the era, becoming interested in bikes at a young age and crafting a few ‘specials’ of his own design in the late 1920s. At age 20, Vincent filed a patent for a cantilevered rear suspension design, and with backing from his family, he purchased the financially troubled HRD brand from Howard R Davies in 1928.

Photo: Ian WelshIt can’t be denied that the world of motor racing, both contemporary and historic, is saturated with egos. Some would say that it’s all really driven by egos, and that is sometimes directly connected to the size of the wallet. Perhaps without such egos we wouldn’t have motor racing at all.

So egos are certainly important, but there is something else that’s behind so many involved in motor racing and, in particular, historic motor sport. I am referring of course to the passion that many have for the sport. A passion that is so strong in some that it outweighs the need for podium finishes and is certainly far stronger than whatever shekels may influence others.

Gordon Murray Automotive’s new T.50 production line

Gordon Murray 02 jpg

Premium British vehicle manufacturer Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) has announced a strategic move of its T.50 supercar production to the company’s newly-built Group headquarters at Highams Park, Surrey. The new site has already taken over manufacturing of the GMA T.50 supercar from its previous production facility at Dunsfold Park. This decision will see T.50 manufacturing benefit from a wealth of efficiencies, while enabling the business to streamline carbon fiber monocoque production for T.33 prototypes and future models at Dunsfold Park. Used for development, testing and homologation-related crash testing, the monocoques will now be produced on-site, accelerating the supercar’s pre-production processes.

State of the art

Building the new Gordon Murray Group HQ at Highams Park near the village of Windlesham saw investment of more than £50 million, and the creation of a broad range of specialized job roles to support full scale production. The new campus will be the Group’s global headquarters – home to a purpose-built 4,300 square meter Vehicle Production Centre, and the Gordon Murray Heritage collection. The site also features a specially-designed Vehicle Dynamics Test Road, used for final validation and pre-delivery checks of new GMA supercars – all set in 54 acres of beautiful English parkland. For customers opting to take delivery of their cars from Highams Park, the new HQ offers the ideal setting at its dedicated Driving Perfection Customer Centre, where owners can specify, set-up, and take delivery of their GMA supercar.
