George Loveridge

Having been surrounded with classic cars growing up, I suppose it was only natural for me to get into motoring journalism. Attending various classic car shows every year, I always had a camera on hand to take photos for my own amusement. However, aged 15, I was able to supply my photographs for a Practical Classics magazine story on the restoration of an Austin 16, which was to take on Seven Capital Cities in Seven Days. It was shortly after the stories were published that I thought, ‘I’d like to do this more often!’.

I joined the Guild of Motoring Writers in 2018, and since then have continued to take photographs at events across the country and supply them to whomever was interested enough! In 2021 I launched my own site, Driving Around, which features regular new car reviews, as well as stories of classic car adventures. The site has an accompanying Facebook page under the same name, with features such as ‘Motorsport Monday’ and highlights of car events.

I enjoy taking delivery of press cars, where available, to supply reviews to Wheels Alive, Travel News Update, and Driving Around. New flagship models are great, however I’ll be forever faithful to my 1969 Triumph Herald which was my first car, and is still used regularly. Daily duties now belong to my 2003 Jaguar XJ6.
