The Team

Editor – Zoë Burn

ZOË’S career began in mainstream regional media, and she earned her stripes working full time in newsrooms across the North East.

Don’t be impressed, that trophy isn’t hers…

A fully NCTJ qualified senior journalist, she has worked in news, features, lifestyle and sports departments, and was formerly editor of the Bikesport News magazine.

An award-winning Motorsport Writer, Zoë specialises in all things two and four wheeled – although admits motorcycle racing has taken centre stage for the last decade.

She has written for numerous motorsport publications – both print and online – including MCN, Autosport and Motorsport News and continues to write regional motorsport reports in several local newspapers, as well as remaining a contributor to the Bikesport News website.

Zoë is also a respected motorsport PR professional, delivering press and PR campaigns to teams and riders across the UK, and works part-time at leading Newcastle agency Sorted PR working with consumer and corporate clients.

She’s also obsessed with cheesy chips and pies. And chocolate cake…

 

Deputy editor and writer – Aaron League

AARON is our token yank on staff – and arrived on our shores with plenty of racing experience under his belt.

And he thought it would be competitive – American optimism, eh?

He spent a number of years competing in the American club racing ranks, raced the Manx Grand Prix in 2014 to finish fifth in his newcomers race, and subsequently moved to England.

A mechanical and software engineer by day, he has consulted to championship-winning NASCAR team Stewart-Haas Racing for suspension, simulation and tyre development.

A key player in the launch and development of UK Clubsport, Aaron is currently studying a Master’s Degree in Sports Journalism at the University of Sunderland.

Despite not yet racing on the British club scene, he keeps threatening to enter whatever round happens to be next on the calendar at any given time, but thanks to the success of the site, we haven’t allowed him to step away from his laptop for more than 20 minutes at a time.

However, he has now become largely familiar with the different clubs that breed some of the best riders in the world, and firmly believes Brits wipe the floor with American club racers. Oh, and he hates Cadwell Park…
