Motoring Research is a multimedia publisher that’s been delivering the goods to clients since 1986.
We are growing fast, developing the Motoring Research Network of freelancers around our highly experienced in-house team. Together, we have more than half a century’s experience of motoring journalism…
Peter Burgess – Chairman (@pburgess123)
Started MR back in 1986 after a career in engineering R&D and then with Motoring Which? Did two seasons as a presenter on Top Gear back in the eighties. Peter is a past Chairman of the Guild of Motoring Writers, and previously a judge on the World Car Awards.
Richard Aucock – MD (@richardaucock)
Richard started at MR in 2001 and he’s still here. He certainly loves his job. Today, he’s MD, overseeing the business and making sure clients receive what they need, when they need it. A social media addict, he’s a student of the motor industry and, when time permits, likes to go jogging. Not that a growing family leaves much time for that.
Tim Pitt – Managing Editor (@timpitt100)
Tim comes from a long run with the consumer organisation Which? (following MR Chairman Peter’s path some thirty years earlier) and strategically oversees MR’s editorial output across our full client list. He has quite the back catalogue of cars, including a E30 BMW M3…
Andrew Brady – Web Editor (@mr_andrewbrady)
Andrew is a former winner of the prestigious Guild of Motoring Writers’ Sir William Lyons Award. Fully trained in journalism, he’s been freelancing since leaving university. He works in all areas of the business and, when he’s not doing that, buying leftfield cars off of the internet.
Gavin Braithwaite-Smith – Features Editor (@majorgav)
Gavin is already well known as the brains behind PetrolBlog.com. He was the 2012 highly commended finalist in the Guild of Motoring Writers’ Breakthrough Blogger of the Year Award and is Motoring Research’s ideas-packed features editor. His grasp of all things leftfield and standout is unsurpassed…
Richard Bremner – Contributor
Started his career at Austin Rover deliberating over individual model specifications for the original Rover 200 and the Maestro before becoming a motoring scribbler 30 years ago. Has edited, co-founded websites and scripted for Channel 4’s ‘Driven’, is a car industry expert and has a collection of 10 old cars, some of them vaguely desirable.
John Redfern – Newsletter Editor (@engagesportmode)
John won the Guild of Motoring Writers’ 2014 Motoring Research Breakthrough Blogger Award. Having studied law, then politics, at university he started EngageSportMode.com as an outlet for his automotive musings. Loves performance motors, from modern hot-hatches to classic American muscle cars – especially if they’re orange!
