Our editor-in-chief started writing about cars only after getting a taste for extensive road trips all across Europe, more than ten years ago. Cherishing the road more than the car, he finds it somewhat difficult to fall in love with today's supercars, but will go on talking for hours about normal cars that normal people can afford. Mainly warm and hot hatches. A travel nut, he likes to embark on long and very long journeys all over the world, covering thousands of miles per trip. In some cases, that involved reaching as far as North Cape, Norway, 300 miles north of the Polar Circle, using nothing but a tool called Opel Corsa.

On other occasions, his adventures were all about crossing the continent several times, driving small hatches, convertibles, and luxurious sedans over winding roads, cherishing high alpine passes and rejoicing in what cars are actually about: the freedom of going wherever you want. He has a hidden passion for driving slowly and somehow manages to get lost during each of our elaborate test drives, but he compensates by taking a nap when we start filming, so at least he stays out of our way. With an automotive journo career that spans over a decade and hundreds of tested cars under his belt, Adrian is now steering this awesome project. Let’s hope he won't get lost or fall asleep behind the wheel, for that matter.
