Having first shown an interest in motorsport journalism back in 2013, Katy has been given an array of incredible opportunities and proved herself to be one of the brightest motorsport journalists of the future.
“Katy’s way of thinking and writing is mesmerising” – Sauber Formula 1 Team, January 2017.
Being a passionate motor racing fan for many years, Katy decided to create a blog during a break from her A Levels and has not looked back since.
Her work has been printed in many British newspapers including The Times, The Independent, Sunday Express and City AM as well as articles published online with the likes of Forbes and the BBC, with her most recent work being available on Motorsport.com, Autosport.com, WTF1 and the FIA AUTO+ Magazine. Although freelancing for such a variety of publications, Katy always finds herself drawn back to her blog: the place it all began.
Here she enjoys sharing exclusive interviews, features on various subjects in motorsport and opinionated pieces that have lead to her gaining a large and loyal audience of her work.
Despite writing and reporting on a variety of motorsports for other media sites and outlets, covering championships like F1, MotoGP, WRC and other single-seater series, Katy spends most of her time in the Formula E paddock with this website. The inquisitive, kind and creative approach Katy applies to her work means she has been able to make many friends and contacts within the sport, with her passion for the all-electric championship shining through all the content she produces.
Having covered Formula E since its first season, Katy has continued to travel with the championship visiting cities such as Paris, Zurich, Valencia and Berlin. This season she will travel to Rome, Monaco and the season finale in New York, whilst balancing other work commitments.
In 2019, Katy also expanded her enthusiasm for motorsport and the individuals in it by creating her first podcast. ‘Small Torque’ was founded at the start of the year and launched its pilot episode to plenty of praise. The podcast features a different guest every episode from the world of motorsport, in which Katy and the guest discuss their career in motorsport.
As well as freelancing, Katy is also part of an exclusive selection of young motorsport writing talent, cementing herself on the Autosport Academy in 2016 – the best junior programme for motorsport journalists in the world. This has helped teach and improve her skills further, also offering her the opportunity to be a larger part of both Autosport and Motorsport.com’s Formula E and Bikes coverage.
