    Eloquent Automotive technical researcher and writer

    South Africa

    I'm an Automotive Engineer turned Blogger. I've been the Ghostwriter on an exclusive, bespoke on Supercars, bikes & planes. Subsequent to the successful completion of this piece I've written articles on everything from "how to articles" around practical guides to carrying out repairs, to copy for performance workshops and sales outlets around the world. I've established a long-term research and writing relationship with a European company that facilitates seminars and workshops for OEM's and first tier industry suppliers. This has expanded to my own monthly column where I focus on current topical events and developments within the industry. I'm conscientious, an independent free thinker with the engineering discipline of logic and the ability to research difficult topics. I only write challenging articles and deliver on time. Examples of my work are available to all interested parties. Hope to hear from you Peter
