Nick Trott
Nick became the Editor of evo in 2009 having spent 15 years as an award-winning freelance motoring journalist and writer. In that time Trott has overseen a successful push into digital publishing with the launch of a trendsetting digital edition, and steered its YouTube channel to considerable success. Under Nick’s editorship, evo’s print content has generated huge international demand. The magazine is currently licensed in 16 countries and in 2013 the key markets of China, Australia and India were added to evo’s expanding global portfolio. When he’s not driving a desk, Nick can be found wrestling with the non-power assisted steering on his 3.0-litre Porsche 911 SC and trying to coax oversteer from his 73bhp BMW 1502.
