Matt Burt Head of Content, Haymarket Automotive

Matt’s introduction to motoring came when his parents bought him a red 1300cc Vauxhall Chevette E saloon, but he was a passionate motorsport anorak from an early age. It was fitting that he spent 14 years at Motorsport News before joining Autocar. Matt hails from the wild Cornish moors and his favourite weekend test route involves taking A303 and A30 to the Westcountry. He's a fan of the structural integrity of Suzuki Vitaras, having crash-tested in a snowy ditch in Norway... Follow Matt on Google+
