Sue Baker interview on BCG & Buddies!

Original Top Gear Host on Today’s TG & Covering the Hunt-Lauda Rush Era

‘Brown Car Guy & Buddies’ – Sue Baker was one of the original hosts of Top Gear, appearing on 100 programmes over 11 years from 1980 to 1991. She also raced, co-drove with Michele Mouton (in a short-wheelbase Audi Quattro Sport rally car), Derek Bell and others, as well as covering the legendary James Hunt vs Niki Lauda era in Formula 1.

She is an award-winning motoring writer, editor & broadcaster with almost 50 years of experience of reviewing cars and reporting on motorsports and motoring matters, as one of the first women journalists on the scene in the late 60s and early 70s.

As well as her love and obsession with cars and all things technical, instilled from a very early age, her ambition was to be a journalist in fabled Fleet Street, starting out at local newspapers in Kent, studying journalism at a college in Essex and ultimately writing for almost every major newspaper including Observer, Daily Telegraph, Independent, Daily Mail, Daily Star, Daily & Sunday Express, Times and Sunday Times.

She is an absolute legend from the world of automotive media, and I’m deeply honoured and grateful to host her on the latest episode of BrownCarGuy & Buddies! Hope you enjoy this episode, and do please share and leave your comments.
