Malta is a land of limestone buildings, colourful balconies, Land Rover Defenders, Kinnie, Cisk and rabbits on a plate. Do not plan to visit this island to the centimeter, especially to the minute, because it will simply not work. Just get lost and enjoy your life!
“Nina came to me and asked if she could write about Formula 1. I agreed!” ~ Andrzej Martynkin

Deus ex Machina, concept introduced to ancient tragedy by Euripides. It translates to “God from the machine”. The term has evolved to mean a plot device whereby seemingly unsolvable problem is suddenly and abruptly resolved by the inspired and unexpected intervention of some new event, character or object.
“While training I set myself on three to four corners and try to drive faster and faster through them. At some point car starts to break away flying out of the corner. I fight it and succeed. I’m not satisfied with that. Making it work isn’t a success for me. I purposely try to overdrive a car, to go faster and faster. Boundaries of what is possible are starting to disappear. Turns out we can outdo ourselves, be faster every time, what man can do isn’t defined. In the endpossibility turns into a reality, my skills improve and I push even more, to be faster, so the circle starts all over again.” ~ Marian Bublewicz
In Italian Dino ought to mean father – son relationship. Dino is not a car. It is the love of father and son, shared passion for cars, family’s tragedy; surely much more than just a mean of transport. Repeatedly I tend to state that for what I love motorizations are emotions, for this fraction of magic, which fills the interior of a metal can and transforms it into a symbol.
Lexus LFA is a masterpiece conceived by insane engineers. It manifests a line between a car / automotive engineering and the creation of a work of art that runs through the zone in which you can consciously say that you cease to simply drive a car, and you begin to experience emotions.
There are few brave people in today’s realm. Brave enough, to say – I’ll do it different than others. We succumb to influence and hype, we want to live safe, we sacrifice our inner “self” for sake of conformism.
