Hemberg 2020 - A New Video

Hemberg 2020 - A New Video

Monday, 21 Sep 2020

It is Saturday morning at Hemberg, single sun rays pierce the fog on the road. But there, two more beams push through the layers of fog. White headlights and a black silhouette. A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of mountain roads and fast cars. Paddy Murphy, a young lad on a crusade, to champion the cause of classic cars and petrol heads.

TPM Night Flight Challenge - Alternative Route

After the analysis of the last TPM Night Flight Paddy thought it would be a wise choice to replace "boring" passes with long transfer distances with other passes in Italy and Switzerland. So the route was modified and the passes Umbrail, Fuorn, Albula, and Julier were replaced. The newcomer passes were Foscagno, Eira, Livigno, and Bernina. Ambitious, but rubbish.

TPM Night Flight Challenge Revisited

Paddy didn't drive many mountain passes lately - but when he drives over passes, then 15 in a row. Paddy crossed 15 alpine passes within 11.5 hours and drove 700km through one night in June 2015. Now, 5 years later Paddy is older and wiser… and he‘s going to do the very same thing again!

Paddy Murphy Is Back

Paddy Murphy Is Back

Tuesday, 14 Apr 2020

Paddy is back! Since Paddy will stay at home this spring he used the time to redesign the website and write this little review. A lot has happened since the last update in November 2017. We are still waiting for the first film from Navigator about the third triumph of Team Paddy Murphy at Strade del Vino 2016. When Driver last asked Navigator about his ongoing project, Navigator promised the film would be wounderful and it would revolutionize the genre of classic car film as Duke Nukem Forever did the gaming industry.

Paddy Murphy on the Transfăgărășan Highway
In 2010, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May headed off to Romania in search of the unpronounceable Transfăgărăşan Highway (Top Gear Series 14, Episode 1). Jeremy proclaimed afterwards that the Transfăgărășan is "the best road in the world". Since then Paddy wanted to drive this magnificent road and see for himself if that's truly the case. This September, his dream came true: Paddy the driver drove all the way to Romania and back - sadly without Paddy the Navigator. Paddy had to work with a soulless computer in his Audi S3 instead.
