Senior Contributing Writer

After an inglorious stint in the City convinced him that he could handle cars better than he handled money, Andrew joined Autocar many years ago as a junior tester. Since then he has become one of the industry’s senior figures, writing for the national papers as well as the specialist press. When not driving exotics at Goodwood he’s racing anything from Caterhams to Ferraris. Editor of Motor Sport for five years, he now runs our road test section.
