Contributing Journalist

Tim Robson has been involved in automotive journalism for almost two decades, after cutting his teeth on alternative forms of wheeled transport. 

Studiously avoiding tertiary education while writing about mountain bikes in the 1990s, Tim started with Motor magazine in 2001, moving on to edit Auto Action and Motor before joining Top Gear Australia in 2010.

Tim formed his own company, 032Media, in 2014, building up a freelance business that supplies leading news outlets like CarsGuide and GoAuto, as well as Evo Australia, Motor, 4x4 Australia and The Robb Report. He's also a skilled photographer, practicing videographer, presenter and editor.

He’s also recently returned to his roots, currently editing Australia's oldest and most prestigious mountain bike magazine, Mountain Biking Australia.

Tim lives in Wollongong, NSW, and is married with three double-digit age kids… two of who are learning to drive. One’s already learned to race, with 16-year-old Max helping Tim to build and run his only car – a track-registered Honda Civic EG.

You can check out Tim’s bike collection, race car failings and more on his Insta feed or Facebook.

There are very few car companies out there today with a smaller line-up than Isuzu Ute. With just two models in the stable, even niche sports car brands like Lamborghini offer more variety. The D-Max ute is the company’s best seller, with a solid and growing support base locally, but the brand's...Read more
Obviously, the SUV body style has pretty much conquered the new car world… and it's based on a belief that a sports utility vehicle has to be more practical, has to be more roomy and, let's face it, has to be a little more exciting than the run-of-the-mill passenger cars we've all been used to for...Read more
What makes for an adventure vehicle? An ability to clamber over mountains like a mountain goat, or the ability to whisk you away from the every day? Hyundai's Tucson falls somewhere in between the two extremes, and leans towards being a simple, handsome five-door SUV that complements your life...Read more
If you look at the origins of the term SUV – short for Sport Utility Vehicle - it makes perfect sense that car makers will produce vehicles that cover both ends of that sport and utility spectrum. Kia's Sportage GT line falls firmly into the 'sport' category in a marketing sense, although it's not...Read more
Subaru has a long history in Australia, and it can trace its adventurous origins all the way back to the early 1980s with the advent of cars like the Sportswagon and the ubiquitous Brumby ute. In fact, Subaru still typifies the affordable adventure car, with cars like the Forester and the Outback...Read more
