My Writing CV

I Started my Motorsport writing career in 2008 when I wrote race reports for Alice Powell’s official website – I did the second half of her Ginetta Junior season, being noticed quite quickly by Matt Salisbury, who at the time was the editor for crash.net. My first published article actually came in 2007, when I emailed Motorsport News with a rant after a massive BTCC accident, where a certain driver was getting the blame.

2009 saw me take on a number of other drivers web reports: Jake Rattenbury, Max McGuire and Jake Cook in the Ginetta Junior Championship while also covering the Production BMW Championship reports and a couple of Toyo Tyres Racing Saloon race reports.

November 2009 saw me join the The Checkered Flag contributor roster, mainly focusing on the BTCC and support races and GP2, then added in WTCC and GP3. I did a variety of different articles, not just news pieces but articles I chose myself, got the information for and produced. I was with TCF until May of this year, when we went our seperate ways.

December 2010 – I joined We Like Sports as their Formula One reporter, doing a fortnightly piece on the latest Formula One News and reviews – this has opened my eyes to the world of F1 and the politics, considering I was just an outside viewer at first. I left We Like Sports in May to focus mainly on Back Of The Grid.co.uk.

December also saw Back Of The Grid.co.uk go live, at first it was a slow process but after a while, as more articles became available, it started to take off and now, Back Of The Grid covers a variety of teams’, drivers’ and Championships from a mixture of discipline’s, ranging from Formula 1 to British and Scottish rallying.

As well as Back Of The Grid.co.uk, I have also contributed a few pieces to Racing Exposure.

August 2011 saw me agree to be the WTCC Reporter on Touring-cars.net

I’m always happy to read feedback – both positive and negative – and I’ll look to improve in the areas which are specified.
