Stuart Gallagher

A founding member of evo, Stuart returned in 2014 as Managing editor before being appointed editor in 2017, despite having a patchy car ownership history that includes an Mk3 Fiesta RS1800i and an MGF. A veteran air-cooled endurance racer (2CVs, not 911s sadly), Stuart has an unhealthy obsession with 1990’s Group A touring cars and will never forgive himself for selling his 306 Rallye.
