Here's to a great 2018.

From all on the Motor1.com UK team, we would like to wish you a merry Christmas and a very happy New Year. 

It's been an eventful six months or so since the team came together, but we started with a bang, putting the new Honda Civic Type R straight up against its toughest rival by sneaking a Ford Focus RS out to the launch in Germany for a head-to-head video. Scenes.

Check out:

We started with a bang and it's been fairly constant ever since. Check our Videos and Features pages for a look of some of the exciting things we've been up to. We've also been busy bringing you the latest first drives and full reviews of the newest cars on the market – make sure you visit our reviews page to see some of the hottest cars of 2017 that we've reviewed, including the Alpine A110, Rolls-Royce Phantom and Volkswagen Polo GTI

All of that will continue into 2018 – starting of course with our exciting stand at the Performance Car Show at the NEC, which forms part of Autosport International from 11-14 January 2018. We're going to take pride of place with our excellent stand and we'd love to see you there. We've got five exciting cars lined up, including the UK debut of the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR, the car VW has created for customers to take racing. We'll have special guests on our mini stage and lots happening – come along and find out more.
