Global Fast and Furious Report: These are the countries with the biggest petrol-heads

Car enthusiasts have been around since, well, the invention of the car, and there’s always been that same competition about whose the car is best, what’s the best brand of car, who can drive the fastest, who can race the best, etc. etc.

Basically, people are obsessed with their cars – in fact, no doubt you know at least one person who has their Facebook profile picture set as a picture of their car – maybe it’s you!

Of course, here at Taxi2Airport, cars are an important part of what we do – you can’t exactly get a taxi to the airport without a car, can you? Since 2003, we’ve been offering thousands of pleasant rides every month, all over the world, to people trying to get to – or from – an airport. And all of these rides have got us thinking: which country cares the most about their cars.

 

To answer these questions, we collated our Global Fast and Furious Report, analyzing which countries around the world are most passionate about their cars from a number of car sales to money spent on cars and national F1 champions.

Results

Coming out as the country with the most petrolheads is the UK, followed by France, USA, Luxembourg, and Italy comprising the top five.

Blighty came out on top, as it raced towards the top score for almost every category analyzed.

The UK made it into the top 30 for the number of road vehicles per 1000 people, which sits at 519 (not bad for a relatively small little country), it came 5th for the number of car sales (3.8% of the country bought a new car in 2017), and it scored an impressive 5.1 for the quality of the roads. Best of all, the UK came first for having the most Formula One winning drivers, with a total of 19 wins overall from UK racers.

In addition, the average price of petrol is $1.53 per litre (converted from £ to $), which is by no means the highest price we found – that was Zimbabwe with $3.34 per litre – but it is high enough to prove there is sufficient demand for petrol across the country.

Following the UK, the top 10 countries are:

2- France

3- USA

4- Luxembourg

5- Italy

6- Finland

7- Portugal

8- Switzerland

9- Germany

10- Australia

France again ranked highly for most of the categories analyzed in the report. The country ranked in fourth place in terms of national F1 wins with an impressive 12 wins in total, while the quality of their roads was deemed some of the best. Petrol prices were a staggering $1.67, proving there is considerable demand for enough petrol to race around on the great road system, and there is an average of 578 vehicles on the road for every 1000 people.

The results by continent are as below:

Europe: UK

Africa: Mauritius

South America: Chile

North America: USA

Oceania: Australia

Asia: Singapore

Methodology

To compile the Global Fast and Furious Report, we used the following methodology.

We examined a variety of different factors in our research, including:

The number of road vehicles per 1000 people;

The number of passenger car sales in a year (calculated as a % of population size);

The average amount of money spent on the same specification car in each country;

Average gas price;

Road quality;

National F1 champion drivers;

We scored every country across each of these categories and then ranked the countries by this score, with a total of 30 being the highest available.

The full dataset is available upon request.

7 Interesting Facts About Palma Cathedral

If you’re visiting Majorca, Spain, you won’t be able to miss the Palma Cathedral. It commands attention with its regal, Gothic-style architecture. Even if you knew nothing about this cathedral, it’s likely that you’d want to visit anyway. However, we’ve rounded up some of the most interesting facts so you’ll know what you’re looking at. Here are seven noteworthy tidbits about Palma Cathedral that are worth knowing before you go.

The Bell Tower Holds Nine Different Bells

This famous bell tower has not one, not two, but nine bells! The most famous bell is called Eloi, and it weighs nearly 5000 kilograms. The bells rings on the hour, every hour, each day. And, it can be heard distinctly all around the island.

The Royal Chapel is a Burying Ground For Kings

 

The tombs of King James II and III can be found in the Royal Chapel, along with several Bishops. The most notable is the Bishop of Palma, who asked for his hat to be hung above his tomb. The hat is still in good condition and can be seen above the tomb today.

A Museum Visit Comes Free With a Ticket

 

A ticket to Palma Cathedral is really a two-for-one deal as you’ll have access to the onsite museum. The doors and walls are adorned with intricate carvings, symbols, and artwork. The historic sculptures and paintings teach visitors the differences between Gothic and Renaissance culture and artwork.

There Are 87 Stained Glass Windows

 

This cathedral is home to 87 stained glass windows and seven rose windows. The most significant can be found above the altar, centrally illuminating the church with its bright colours. Twice a year, the sunlight comes in just perfectly, illuminating the entire wall above the main entrance. In fact, each year on November 11th and February 2nd, the La Fiesta de la Candelaria is held for visitors to view this beautiful sight.

The Cathedral Was Built Because of an Oath to God

This cathedral was built not out of necessity but to make good on a promise to God. The stories say that King James I set out to fight the Arabs. However, a massive storm came through, terrifying even the bravest of soldiers. As everyone feared for their lives, King James made an oath to God that he would build a grand cathedral if they survived. Not only did the army weather the storm successfully, but they beat the Arabs afterwards. As a way to showcase Christianity’s win over Islam, the king had a mosque torn down and the cathedral built in its place.

It Was Once Damaged by an Earthquake

While this beauty stands tall and proud, it was once the victim of a devastating earthquake. Construction originally started in the 14th century and was completed by 1601. It hadn’t stood for long before an earthquake did incredible damage in 1851. The cathedral was originally constructed in Gothic style, but during repairs, it received some Renaissance design as well.

Famous Architect, Antoni Gaudi Worked on The Cathedral

Even Antoni Gaudi, the famous architect responsible for Sagrada Familia, put his finishing touches on the building. While he didn’t play a role in the construction of the original version, he lent a helping hand to rebuild the structure after the earthquake.

When visiting the Palma Cathedral, there’s more than meets the eye. This beautiful piece of architecture is surrounded by stories, historical events, and significant moments. Be in-the-know before you go if you want to fully appreciate this site.
