Following its commitment to the 2018 BRC season, Prestone has strengthened its line-up ahead of the opening round by signing two ambassadors to report from all six events of Britain’s premier rallying series. Henry Catchpole and Luke Barry will host the social media coverage throughout 2018 as they further supplement Prestone’s large on event presence.
Former features editor at Evo magazine, Catchpole has been a lifelong rally fan. More recently Henry has written for various titles including DriveTribe and BBC Top Gear magazine, as well as turning his hand to presenting for Carfection, where he currently spends his time testing and reviewing the latest super and performance cars. Henry owns a gravel-specification Ford Escort MK2 and has first hand experience of the British Rally Championship, having competed back in 2008 in the Swift Sport Cup.
Luke Barry is the fresh face on the motorsport scene. The young Scot is an aspiring journalist who balances his undergraduate studies at Edinburgh Napier University with a role as Press Officer for the MSA Scottish Rally Championship. A rally fan through and through, Luke grew up with the Jim Clark Rally on his doorstep and has closely followed every British Rally Championship season. Barry has a particular soft spot for the BRC’s F2 era and has recently been selected for Autosport’s journalism academy.
