Growing up in Australia, naturally, meant Mitchell Adam's first exposure to motorsport was watching the Bathurst 1000 as a youngster. When he started writing about the sport, freelance journalism and PR roles were followed by time with a leading communications agency and then three years with his home nation's industry-leading Motorsport News.

Mitchell moved to the UK for its weather in 2012, and has followed the same professional pattern, spending time promoting the Autosport International show before joining the Autosport editorial team in early 2015.
