John Marcar

John Marcar has been widely recognised as a key figure in the automotive events and PR industries since 2008 and started out in assisting with the start-up of track day and car control experience companies in the UK. The following years have seen John embark on a truly unique journey, developing a broad career and a strong social following with varying roles in media publishing, journalism and presenting as well as overseeing the production and logistics of some of the largest motoring events globally including the Gumball 3000 Rally.

John is a true petrol head with his own small collection of cars and motorbikes and is most likely to be found on a race track or getting his hands dirty in a workshop in his spare time.

Pictured here with Derek Bell MBE, John first started working with Classic Grand Touring as a freelancer in 2012 assisting with various tours and events and then joined the team full-time as Operations Manager in Summer 2017 later becoming a director in 2018.
