Matt Beer started freelancing for Autosport.com in the first week of its existence in 1999, and spent the next decade-and-a-half dovetailing increasing amounts of time contributing to it with UK national reporting, driver and team PR, freelance for organisations including ITV, BMW, Autocourse and the FIA Institute and a parallel career co-managing award-winning Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatres.

He stopped being stubborn and became Autosport.com's deputy editor in April 2014. Matt also oversees Autosport Media's talent development programme for emerging motorsport writers and escapes to cover Formula Ford 1600 races whenever possible.
