Simon Arron

Features editor
Intrigued by cars almost from birth, Simon was still at school when he persuaded a local newspaper editor that he really, really needed to run race reports from Oulton Park, Aintree and elsewhere. He has since followed the sport all over the planet and edited several titles, including Motoring News, Autocourse and this one (August 1991-October 1996).
