About Me & What this is.

This is a personal blog & site for me, a hobby and somewhere for me to write [badly] about cars & the adventures with them. I see myself as a bit of a 'web enthusiast' & I actively enjoy the process of building websites, so putting this together was half of the fun - writing about cars is the rest. Speaking of describing myself, if I had to I would say: Aspiring writer/journalist, car enthusiast, adventurer, risk taker and budding entrepreneur.

All views are of course my own and everything written here is by myself.

What will I be writing about?

As already mentioned the main topic of this blog will be cars, whether that is reviews of cars I have driven; features of interesting cars or brands, motoring events, motoring stories or adventures/trips etc. Through my current employment (that in the interest of avoiding conflict or bias will remain unnamed on this site) I have been very fortunate to experience and drive a huge range of performance cars (far more than the average 20-something-year-old should), most of which are very new to market at the time, putting me in a desirable position to share my views.

While cars will be the lions share of the site however you may also see posts about my other passions and projects I am working on; such as Watches, Technology, Politics or Business.

My Automotive background.

I have been a devoted petrol head since birth, and have worked in the Automotive Industry for nearly 4 years at the time of writing this - while my first job was not in the automotive industry I saw it (rightly or wrongly) as a means to fuel my addiction.

My car history is quite short as I am still quite young, I haven't had the means to go a chase all of my rabbit holes but I am slowly but shortly getting there, I have listed my car history so far below.

2007 Renault Twingo 1.2 Dynamique

2015 Alfa Romeo Mito Quadrifoglio Verde 1.4T

2014 Audi A1 1.4 TFSI 185 Black Edition

2019 Mazda MX-5 ND2 SE-L 2.0 184ps
