Scott Mitchell is Autosport's Features Editor and Formula E correspondent, and a judge for the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award. He ended a promising career as an extremely average karter to join Autosport in late 2013, shortly after graduating from the University of Kent with first-class honours in Journalism. Scott initially co-ordinated the national section of the magazine before covering the BTCC in 2015, when he also started editing the driver-dedicated supplement Autosport Performance. His brace of Renault MSA Young Journalist of the Year awards means his tally of accomplishments in motorsport journalism outstrips his number of competitive honours by two.
