Dan began his career in car journalism just as the world was slipping into one of its deepest recessions in modern times. Unsurprisingly, the newly launched magazine he worked for as Staff Writer, Performance Car, was canned two years later at the end of 2009.

Undeterred, he carried on in the business as a freelancer, covering the World Rally Championship and writing about cars for various websites and magazines, plus The Daily Telegraph. Three years at Evo magazine as Road Test Editor followed, after which he contributed to Autocar and PistonHeads for a number of years.

First car:

Professional hero:

Fondest driving memory:

“Supercars are wonderful, but these days I crave lighter, nimbler cars that are fun to drive at sub-ballistic speeds. The Alpine A110 is a good example, as are the brilliant Toyota GR86 and Ford Fiesta ST. Mind you, I do like Italian V12s..."
