The Toyota MR2 holds a special place in his heart, as it was the first car he road tested as a young journalist and he once owned a much-cherished MR2 Mk II. Currently Motoring Editor of The Northern Echo, Nigel is a former motoring correspondent for ITV Teletext. He previously wrote A History of Electric Cars, also published by Crowood.
