I joined Autocar magazine in the summer of 1988 and spent my formative weeks on the magazine primarily trying not to get sacked which, in the exceptionally precarious position that having lied my way into the job left me in, was a full time occupation. But in my spare time, I dreamt of my first launch, the first time I’d be trusted with going somewhere to drive a brand new car and reaching a verdict that would have to stand as the judgement of the oldest car magazine in the world.
