Matthew Hayward
Matthew’s day-to-day responsibilities are focused on evo.co.uk, writing news, updating reviews and keeping the social media channels up to date. With a keen eye on the used performance car market, he also contributes to evo’s auction coverage and analysis, thoughtfully tempting the office with potential performance car bargains on a daily basis. Despite a slight fascination with old French hot hatches, Matthew actually runs a 1994 Toyota Celica GT-Four on the evo Fast Fleet, which keeps him busy at the weekends. Other regular responsibilities include contributing to product reviews and evo’s simulations and gaming page.
