EngageSportMode started out as the work of just one man, but over time it has evolved to feature other bloggers, commentators and contributors. Here is a quick rundown of who’s who:
– Winner of the Guild of Motoring Writer’s Motoring Research Breakthrough Blogger Award 2014
– Shortlisted 2015 UK Blog Awards – Automotive Individual
– Shortlisted 2015 AA Car Blog Awards – Rising Star
The primary voice of EngageSportMode. Despite studying law, and later politics, my main love has always been cars and motorsport. I also happen to really love writing, and EngageSportMode was the net result of these two passions.
A current Associate Member of the Guild of Motoring Writers, and available for freelance writing work.
Currently drives: 2015 Volkswagen Polo GTI.
The Tame Geek
Along with loving all things techie, the Tame Geek is also a big fan of cars. A larger than life character, he fancies himself as the next Jeremy Clarkson. Don’t forget to check out his website for all your design and technology needs.
Currently drives: Volkswagen Passat CC, diesel.
ESM’s BTCC Correspondent – Hieldsy
The man who orchestrates EngageSportMode’s touring car coverage and our road trips to various rounds. Offers up news and post-race reports on all things related to the British Touring Car Championship. He also happens to be a school teacher as well.
Currently drives: Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI 184
The newest, and youngest, addition to the EngageSportMode team. Ned has delivered ESM with a string of high-quality new car articles, whilst also managing his own personal blog. We’re keen to promote fresh talent, and Ned deserves to be recognised for the impressive ability he’s showing at a young age. He’s also already been accepted by the Guild of Motoring Writers as a Provisional Member.
Currently drives: Datsun Cherry
Likes to write articles about women drivers and girls’ cars from the female perspective. Can get distracted by Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville or netball. Also owns a selection of books on ’70s muscle cars. Probably why I married her.
Currently drives: Kia Pro_cee’d
ESM’s Uncle Steve
Another former student of the law, ESM’s Uncle Steve now happens to be an ICT Teacher. Despite all those lengthy school holidays, he occasionally manages to find the time to contribute to EngageSportMode; usually to complain about customer service.
Currently drives: Nissan Qashqai. An obvious rarity in the North East.
