Vicky Parrott Deputy reviews editor

Vicky started as picture editor in 2006, before becoming web reporter, road tester and staff writer, and then deputy road test editor for What Car? Believes that a bland car is the worst kind. A Metro 6R4, a Caterham Supersport and a Nissan GT-R are on her ‘to own one day’ list. Appreciates great packaging in an MPV as much as outstanding performance in a supercar and is particularly partial to featherweight track specials. Prefers Goodwood Revival to the Festival of Speed, and not just because of the outfits.
