More about Erin Baker
Erin has been a motoring journalist since 2003. She was the Motoring Editor at the Telegraph Media Group for four years, during which time she got her race licence and bike licence. She then had kids, which effectively meant she kissed goodbye to driving any sexy two-seater sports cars.
In 2014 she became Managing Director of Motoring at the Telegraph, a hybrid role that brought together various editorial and commercial aspects. She then left the Telegraph in 2016 to pursue a freelance career, primarily as a motorsport marketing consultant at the Goodwood estate. She also became Automotive Editor of Robb Report UK, and the Editor of Dream, Honda’s customer magazine.
In 2017, Erin was appointed as Editorial Director at Auto Trader. She is a strong advocate of content which de-mystifies the car world, by replacing insider jargon with plain English. She believes in a gender-neutral car industry, and has found her spiritual home at Auto Trader.
