Meet the Editor:
My name is Sebastiaan Johannes Thoolen.
I am a true car enthusiast, petrol head, race car driver and am very passionate about motoring. A motoring journalist since November 2016 (Full SAGMJ member since 05/2017 and Full international GOMW UK member since 09/2018). I am a Mechanical Engineer by profession.
I studied Mechanical Engineering and have always wanted to design F1 engines and drive the most exotic cars. I strive to give objective and uninfluenced views in my writing and video content, as an independent professional member of the press.
As dreams go, mine is still a work in progress, but I think the path you take to get to your destination can be more exciting than the destination in the end, especially when you’re driving that road in a ride of your dreams and there are lots of bends and corners to tackle head on. Hoping to use my knowledge and experience to work in the field of motor car engineering and design, perhaps even as a test driver.
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1990, but raised in Cape Town since the age of 5 until recently emigrating to the Netherlands in 2018.
From Dutch descent on my father’s side, being raised in the Dutch manner, hence the name Dutchman Seb.
I spend a lot of time in the car, doing close to 30 000 km/year. It’s important to drive a comfortable car that gives you pleasure.
First car owned 2008-2010: 2006 Volkswagen Mk1 Golf Velocity 1.6i
