<strong>David Navarro</strong>
David Navarro(Motor Journalist)

When David was little, his father fed him sitting in the seats of the car dealership where his uncle was working. Since then something awoke within him: the passion for cars. Since then, his interest has grown and grown more and more!

Currently he is studying journalism to, someday, work in a specialized drive medium. And this is only the beginning.

The passion for cars was always there, but when he discovered the television program Top Gear, he decided that he wanted to do the same, make a living in & with the motorsports world. His dream would have something like the well-known British program, but, by now is content to appear at the wheel of the latest sports cars in a motor & motorsports magazine. By now…!

He does not lack passion and desire, but sometimes the turbo of the decision and the action slow to appear, but when it does, no one can brake this young gasoline and exhaust roar fanatic! Currently he takes his first steps on PetrolHeadGarage.com and an online magazine where he is writing awesome articles in the motor section.

Welcome David, welcome to our PetrolHeadGarage family!

His passion began so many years ago!
