About Us

BlackTopMedia is a petrol head doing what he loves: Riding, driving, writing and filming motorcycles and cars for you.

I’m the founder, Mark Turner @Blacktopmediauk. I grew up oily, holding a spanner for my dad. Now I’m a freelance auto journalist who loves motorcycles and old-school cars. I’ve worked in the automotive sector most of my life in one form or another and I’ve done everything from selling cars to fixing them to working with manufacturers on engineering projects to riding, driving, photographing and writing about them.

I’m always looking for new opportunities and if you want to be involved or have something you think I would like to be involved with, drop me a line.

In my first year at secondary School, I was sitting in English class. We had a truly inspirational teacher called Wally Gomes who had an MK1 Escort Lotus. Wally sparked something inside me and I’ve been writing ever since.

Please accept my apologies for not updating this site enough. My work tends to go out on a variety of titles and platforms so I rarely get around to updating my own site, you know how it is. I will try to add content here from time to time.
