Hi! I’m Charley, the co-founder and one of the writers for Grid Talk. I have been an avid motorsport fan for almost ten years. My Dad is a casual F1 fan and I was brought up hearing the beautiful sounds of V10 engines. My favourite team has always been McLaren, this developed from watching Jenson Button win the World Championship at Brawn before moving to McLaren for the following season. In more recent years, my motorsport obsession has lead to me following Formula E, IndyCar as well as the F2 and F3 support series.
I’ve sadly not attended any races yet due to the 2020 season taking place behind closed doors, but I have had two absolutely incredible F1 experiences to date. I’m very lucky to have visited the McLaren Technology Centre and was invited to the McLaren garage at F1 testing in Barcelona. I am extremely passionate about motorsport and writing, so combining them for Grid Talk is the start of a dream come true!
