Mayhead Media is run by John Mayhead

John is an automotive writer and editor. His love affair with motoring began aged 17 when he rebuilt his first car, a dilapidated 1968 Volkswagen Beetle, with his father. A long term relationship with Alfa Romeos then blossomed, before he fell for the charms of a Guards Red Porsche and hasn't looked back.

In recent years, John has been European Editor of Hagerty Classic Cars, a Sunday Times Driving columnist and a contributor to most of the major UK automotive magazines. He edits the UK Hagerty Price Guide, is a well-known commentator on the classic car market, and an active Tribe Leader on DriveTribe.

In 2016, John established Mayhead Media to bring together a collection of trusted associates who shared his passion for delivering high quality, entertaining automotive content. Since then, the business has expanded and now serves clients across the motoring world and beyond.
