Ben Barry has been an automotive journalist for 18 years. He's contributed to magazines worldwide, including Road & Track, Automobile and Autoweek in the US, and Wheels in Australia. But it’s with CAR Magazine in the UK that he’s had the most lasting association – he worked at the title from 2006, leaving as deputy editor in 2013 but continuing to this day as editor-at-large in a freelance capacity. He lives in the UK, and owns a 996 Carrera that’s a keeper and an E36 BMW M3 track car that’s a little unkempt. High-performance cars, track driving and frequent snacking are his passions. So long as he doesn’t combine any of that with a ride in the passenger seat, he’ll be fine.
