Loath to admit it though I am, I’m quite clearly nearer the exit point of my career than the entry. I started 34 years ago at Autocar and if I’m still in the game 34 years from now, I’ll be one of tiny handful of people who have somehow managed to earn anything at all as a motoring journalist in their 90s. But I doubt it – I came out of the shallow end of the gene pool and while I’d love to emulate the unique achievement of MotorSport’s Bill Boddy and still be filing copy at the age of 98, I really don’t think that’s too likely.
