Andrew Frankel’s road test

Motor Sport on Tests

Motor Sport has always kept readers up to date with the latest road cars and road tests. Our late founder editor Bill Boddy made the magazine famous for offering decisive opinions on the latest offerings from the car manufacturers. If he didn’t like a particular car though he wasn’t afraid to say as much. Andrew Frankel is now in charge of the road car section both in the magazine and online. Just like Boddy, he’s not afraid to say what he thinks making him one of the most trusted writers in the business.
