I've spent more than 30 years writing about cars, attending new model launches across the globe. Current and recent outlets include news and road tests for the TheCarExpert.co.uk suite of websites, contributions to Motor Trader magazine, the Business Car Manager and Switched-on EV websites and technology features for titles including Engine Technology International and Vehicle Dynamics International.
I've been writing about racing cars even longer than I have road cars. I speciaiise in Touring Cars and US motorsport, particularly NASCAR. Formerly a Contributing Editor to Race Tech, I have since supplied copy to Professional Motorsport World magazine and sister titles. I was also Honda's media representative in the British Touring Car Championship during the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
I have had a lifelong passion for trains, particularly of the smaller variety. Since 2009 I have edited and designed the specialist newstand magazine Narrow Gauge World and I wrote the Steam Locomotive Driver's Manual, published by Haynes. Since 2018 I have also edited and designed Engineering in Miniature magazine. I also occasionally contribute to Steam Railway magazine.
I'm on Facebook and Twitter on which I post almost daily, LinkedIn and Instagram (the links are below). The most recent additions are my Instagram and Twitter feeds andrewcstracksidearchive, adding regular pictures and insights from my many years photographing and writing about motorsport. I have a ShortAxle Blog but post somewhat irregularly due to a lack of time!
