Nick Hodgson has his BComm honours in Information Systems through Rhodes University. He has an affinity for all things technological, however has always gravitated towards anything with four wheels and an engine. Exploring all aspects of motoring through journalism since 2009, never afraid to pull a punch when it comes to voicing an opinion and a good old fashioned car nut, his other passion in life is found in all things photographic. Most often found with a camera in hand and foot to the floor. He contributes to Biznews.com
