Welcome to Petrolhead a blog to share my passion for cars, motorsport and writing.

Here you’ll find news, reviews, features and opinion pieces, including those written during my time as a student on the MA Automotive Journalism course at Coventry University.

I hope you enjoy reading my work and welcome any feedback.

In 2016, I was the proud recipient of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers (MGMW) Phil Llewellin Award for motoring journalism (senior section), a competition held in memory of a much-missed MGMW member. To read the winning entry, click here.

Thanks for visiting!
