Mark Tisshaw Deputy editor

As Autocar’s news man, Mark’s normally only interested in a new car if it’s still camouflaged in gaffer tape and tarpaulin, or there’s an industry exec stood next to it on a motor show stand. His nomadic existence between Autocar HQ in Teddington and East Anglia makes him one of the team’s most prolific motorway mile eaters. If it’s got a diesel engine, leather seats and an automatic gearbox, he’s normally first to the keys, but will always make an exception for a high-revving hot hatch. Follow Mark on Google+
