Larry Edsall was snatched away from a career as the sports editor of a daily newspaper in Michigan to become the motorsports editor at AutoWeek magazine, where he spent most of a dozen years as the managing editor. He left Detroit for Phoenix in 1999 to help modernize one automotive website and then launched another, iZoom.com. He contributes to automotive and lifestyle publications, writes regularly for the Detroit News "Drive" section and the New York Times "Wheels," and is part of the adjunct faculty at the journalism school at Arizona State University. Edsall's Motorbooks titles include Camaro 2016, Corvette Stingray, and Chevrolet Volt.

Steve Sutcliffe has been a car journalist for over 30 years, and is currently a contributing editor to Auto Express and its sister magazine Evo, after working as road test editor at What Car? and editor of Autocar. He is also a successful racing driver, competing in the BTCC with Lexus and for the factory team in the TVR Tuscan Challenge. He has competed in the Nurburgring 24h and finished on the podium with Aston Martin in the Silverstone 24h. He was one of the first journalists ever to be allowed to drive a current F1 car, setting highly competitive times around Silverstone in Jenson Button’s Honda RA107.
