He moved on to become a publisher for Haymarket Magazines, devising and launching other car magazines such as What Car? and Classic & Sports Car, and went on to be the Company’s Managing Director and eventually its Chairman.

Simon was BBC Radio’s voice of motor racing for more than 20 years, reporting on Formula 1 from all over the world, and his TV commentary and presentation work includes being a member of ITV’s F1 team. He is the author of several books on car and motor racing history, and appeared in the movie Rush playing himself and describing the James Hunt/Niki Lauda battles during the 1976 F1 season.
