Tim oversees MR’s editorial output across our full client list. He cut his teeth in the muddy world of 4x4s, then spent six years testing sensible cars at Which? (following MR founder Peter’s path some 30 years earlier). Today, he enjoys indulging in odd supercar and loves anything hot with a hatchback. He has a lengthy back-catalogue of Golf GTIs, while the coolest car he’s owned is an E30 BMW M3.
Gavin works from a converted attic in rural Devon, where we’re led to believe he has running water, working electricity and even broadband. He surrounds himself with the cars nobody else wants, and his most recent purchases include a £100 Renault Laguna and a Clio Baccara, to add to his burgeoning collection of French tat. To provide some balance, Gavin also owns a gold Mercedes-Benz W123. He doesn’t get out much.
Ethan joined MR in the summer of 2018 to herd motoring-related words and wisdom of disparate measures. He usually spends his free time gaming, going to gigs and watching movies. Road trips with friends exploring the UK’s best roads in his Clio 172 and Vauxhall Monaro are a once-a-year must. His bipolar tastes are further illustrated by a toss-up between a C7 Grand Sport Corvette and the new Alpine A110 for “endgame” dream car.
Bradley joined MR in summer 2017 to create stunning video and photographic content, and that’s exactly what he’s been doing. He has a love for anything noisy that draws plenty of attention, in particular the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and his best mate’s Audi TT RS (a car the rest of the team never stop hearing about). He currently drives a 2017 Vauxhall Corsa, but plans to upgrade to an Abarth 124 Spider when he turns 21.
John won the Guild of Motoring Writers’ Breakthrough Blogger Award in 2014, earning himself valuable work experience with MR. Several years later he is still here, having edited the weekly MR newsletter and produced content for America and Australia. He is happiest when researching obscure American classics, or spotting trends at major car auctions. He loves his Skoda Octavia vRS, but would readily swap it for a woodie station wagon.
