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 is a motorcycle racing reporter for the Daily Star, Daily Express and Daily Mirror.

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


Deputy editor – Aaron League

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

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 former mechanical and software engineer, 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 earned a Master’s Degree in Sports Journalism at the University of Sunderland along with NCTJ accreditation.

He keeps threatening to enter whatever club round happens to be next on the calendar at any given time, but thanks to the success of the site and UK Clubsport magazine, 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…
