“At Ecurie we celebrate the best in car culture and creativity. We explore everything from car design and builds, to events and gatherings, photography, film, art and graphic design, and of course we feature some truly iconic cars from both the road and track, past and present. I think where we differ from other car blogs is that we want Ecurie to feel like it’s been curated to show the most visually interesting content out there. We want it to be a visual experience foremost, supported by the story behind the feature. We’re still a relatively young brand and we hope in the coming years we can increase our audience and volume of content. 2019 will see us expand our site with the opening of the Ecurie shop featuring original wall art and eventually clothing.” – Kit Boothby, Creative Director / Editor

“Dailycarblog.com covers car news and car reviews. We also feature off-the-wall opinions such as The Worst Car of The Week, lookalikes. Jeremiah Clarkson provides the odd in your face commentary, both social, economic and cars. However, as motoring journalists, we see ourselves as a bunch of pirates sailing the automotive landscape and raiding what is seen as a genteel and privileged profession. We tried to do the respectability, be part of the industry so to speak, but didn’t really fit in. So we went in our own direction, the Quartermaster turned pirate.” – James Kirby, Content Manager, Daily Car Blog
