Henry Catchpole


Henry has been a car journalist for more than 15 years, cutting his road testing teeth on Evo magazine where he also held the position of Features Editor for several years. These days he can be found on Hagerty’s YouTube channel presenting exceptionally high-quality films.

He adores rallying and has been lucky enough to not only compete in the British Rally Championship, but also test quite a few WRC cars. His own current car collection extends to a slightly scruffy Renault Clio 182 and most of a 1979 Escort Mk2 rally car. As well as anything automotive, Henry can also be inveigled into conversation about bicycles, coffee, golf, skiing, beer, the Jackson Lamb series, chocolate, running and P.G. Wodehouse.

Dream car:

I’d love a slightly scruffy Porsche 911 2.7 RS that I could daily

First rally:

The 2008 Wyedean Forest Rally, driving a Peugeot 205 1.6 GTI. Still amazed we made it round

Professional hero:

Russell Bulgin. I never tire of reading his beautifully tight, witty writing

"The sound of a Stratos in a forest. The Christmas morning excitement of trying a car for the first time. The feeling of controlled oversteer. The clear-headed freedom of an Alpine pass to yourself. These are a few of my favourite things"
