Jack Warrick Q&A

What was your biggest news story?

The story I feel was most important was a deep dive feature on the accessibility of electric cars for disabled drivers. It was fascinating to research, speaking to several drivers with differing disabilities, including Mat Campbell-Hill, former Team GB Paralympic fencer, as well as charity Motability. It really helped form my perspective on the way the infrastructure needs to change to accommodate each and every driver on the road in the UK.

What’s the best car you’ve ever driven?

I’ve been lucky enough to drive several fantastic cars in my few years at Autocar, including the Audi E-tron GT, the Alpine A110 and the BMW M240i to name a few. My favourite is still the Toyota GR Yaris, which I had in my possession for a week back in 2021. You can keep your SUVs - I’ll take a rally-derived hot hatchback any day, and one as special as the GR Yaris cannot be ignored. 

What will the car industry look like in 20 years?

Cars will fly and we’ll be living on Mars, right? But seriously, electric cars will become the norm, and hopefully the air quality in our cities will be much, much cleaner. Hydrogen may have a bigger part to play, but I wouldn’t put all my eggs into one basket here. Whether you like EVs or not, I believe the classic car scene will boom in 20 years, owing to the number of fantastic ICE cars on our roads that have launched in the past ten years.
