On the 13th of August 2013 i received an email from a young writer wishing to get his content in front of some more beady eyes. to gain exposure, hone his craft and to make his name known.
Well, that email was the type of correspondance you show to others. The breadth of vocabulary and the way he conveyed himself was simply amazing for a young lad aged just 19.
Without hesitation I invited him onto the team, he then posted his very first article just 5 days later, a musing as to why the Jaguar C-X75 was killed off early.
Since those early days he has covered numerous topics across 46 features, always with excellent depth, exquisite intellect and a way with words i can only dream of having.
Yes thats right, our very own Ethan Jupp is in the running to win the 2014 Guild of Motoring Writers Sir William Lyons award.
