A professional motorsport writer for 39 years, the last 34 of them in Formula 1, he has attended and reported on every Grand Prix since the Spanish GP of 1988, even during the COVID pandemic, when only two F1 journalists did all the races. Saudi Arabia in 2021 was his 600th race.
A former Grand Prix Editor of Autosport, he wrote the best-selling "World Atlas of Motor Racing" back in the 1980s. He went on to be a pioneer in electronic media in F1, launching the award-winning JSBM e-newsletter in 1994, following by grandprix.com, GP+, JoeBlogsF1 and the Missed Apex Podcast.
Joe also hosts Audience events for F1 fans.
A member of the F1 Paddock Hall of Fame and a representative on the FOA Media Working Group, Joe was trained as a historian and is an expert on the Special Operations Executive (SOE), his book "The Grand Prix Saboteurs" having won the Guild of Motoring Writers' Author of the Year award.
He has also writen "The Man who Caught Crippen", a non-racing book, plus several volumes of "Fascinating F1 Facts".
