Anna Kantilaftas

Anna Kantilaftas

Journalist, Wheels Magazine and WhichCar

Anna has seven years’ experience in media. Previously working at 4X4 Australia, she fell in love with cars that promise adventure. When she’s not darting in and out of traffic on the hunt for new brunch spots, she’s jumping at any opportunity to chase the sun, snow or mud. She also likes long drives on the beach, driving to the speed limit without traffic and singing along to a good sound system. When it comes to cars, it’s all in the detail.

 

Matt Raudonikis

Matt Raudonikis

Editor, 4x4 Australia Magazine

Matt Raudonikis has more than 30 years in the auto industry, originally on the tools and since then just being a tool. He has written for auto magazines ranging from sports car and hot rods to motorcycles and heavy trucking magazines but a passion for the outdoors has him pigeonholed in the 4x4 segment where he is the current editor of 4x4 Australia magazine. He’s still keen to ride and drive anything on wheels.

An experienced performance driver, Dylan specialises in reviewing new, high-performance cars, having tested many of the world's best on racetracks in Australia and around the globe.

Samantha Stevens

Samantha Stevens

Journalist, WhichCar

An automotive journalist since 2003, Samantha spends her days driving cars, teaching others how to drive them, and hauling them around Australia to compete in races and rallies. Her specialties range from front- and all-wheel-drive performance cars, to towing vehicles, to young driver and family-friendly vehicles. With two children of her own, parents are always asking for car advice... Just do as she says, not as she does - her ‘family car’ is a two-door turbo hot-hatch!

 

Alex Inwood

Alex Inwood

Deputy Editor, Wheels Magazine and WhichCar

Alex grew up in Bathurst, at the foot of Mount Panorama, so a love of cars is in his blood. Starting first as a motorsport writer before realising a childhood dream to work at Wheels Magazine, Alex’s journalism career began in 2010. Now Deputy Editor at Wheels and WhichCar, he brings enthusiasm, passion and an ability to look beyond a badge for what a car is, or isn’t.

 

Emma Ryan

Emma Ryan

Journalist, WhichCar

Emma is a seasoned journalist and a full-time traveller. Currently the field editor of Bauer Media's 'Adventures' group, her passion for off-road adventure means she favours 4X4s and capable SUVs. As the former editor of Camper Trailer Australia magazine, she's experienced at towing RVs and knows what to look for when it comes to powerful tow vehicles. Fond of her creature comforts, too, Emma knows a capable vehicle can also be a luxurious one.

 

Nathan Ponchard

Nathan Ponchard

Senior Journalist, Wheels Magazine

Nathan Ponchard couldn’t wait to grow up and blow all his money on cars. But fate decided he’d spend nearly 20 years of his career testing them instead. He’s driven everything from a billycart to a Bugatti Veyron, yet that has failed to curtail his penchant for classic cars. Any car, in fact.

 

 

Barry Park

Barry Park

Senior Journalist, Wheels Magazine

Barry Park is a journalist with more than 20 years’ experience, and somewhat unique in the motoring world in that he has four children he regularly needs to cart around. He uses this to his advantage: Children are honest critics, and quick to establish what they like, or don’t, about a new car. He still regularly checks the oil in the three cars currently in his driveway.

 

Ryan Lewis

Ryan Lewis

Journalist, Wheels Magazine and WhichCar

Ryan has been living his childhood dream of writing about cars for work since 2010. He is absorbed by technical details and engineering curios at the mirth of his ever-tolerant wife, who now knows the name of every Formula One driver on the grid. Weird and wonderful cars – especially those from Japan – are his favourite subject matter, though he will happily wax lyrical about sports cars and SUVs alike.

 

Scott Newman
