Tom Ford – #Petrolheads

In this edition of Petrolheads

We meet Top Gear Magazine writer, TV presenter and former circus performer, Tom Ford.

It was riding around in his dad’s flash German motors that fired Tom’s passion for cars. So he joined the circus, as you do. Maybe an early experience with a flammable Land Rover had something to do with it.

Anyway, a few years later Tom decided to pursue his dream of working on a car magazine and after doing work experience on just about all of them he landed his dream job at, um, Car magazine.

Through a series of embarrassing incidents he later became a presenter on Fifth Gear, while he found a willing outlet for his madcap, car-themed adventures in Top Gear magazine. All in the interests of good journalism, obviously.
