I don’t think there is a more noble title to have in the field of journalism than ‘reporter’. It’s so simple, so direct, so lacking in pomposity and pretence. It is the purest job to have in this business but, sadly, I’ve rarely had the pleasure in any formal sense. And when I did I rarely enjoyed the experience.
The Welsh 20mph limit is a terrible idea | Thank Frankel it's Friday
Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
