Lerato Matebese

A dyed-in-the-wool, self-confessed and unabashed petrolhead, Lerato’s obsession with cars goes back into the 80s when his dad bought a pre-loved Ford Escort 1600 Sport - white with the requisite black stripes. From then on, the automotive bug had truly and properly bitten. A firm lover of normally aspirated high-performance cars, preferably in manual and rear-wheel driven, he loves cars the old-school way. When not reviewing cars, chatting to automotive figure heads, and banging at his keyboard to churn out motoring content, he spends a great deal of time with his wife and young family, enjoys the outdoors and fine wine.
