About Derick Truscott

Growing up in a household with a father who has never loved driving the same car for too long, Derick Truscott received his fair share of what the motoring world has to offer through whatever car was in the driveway at any given moment. Being too young to drive at the time, but still dragged along to car meets, he developed a keen eye and interest in the many (funny) things that come with the territory of being a modern day petrolhead. After obtaining a driving license, the addiction hit full throttle and shows no indication of slowing down. Currently he enjoys thinking, writing and sleeping about cars and occasionally gives his old man more grey hairs as he thrashes his Alfa 4C around Killarney.
