Tom "Wookie" Ford is one of those irritating people who seem to lead a charmed life, and who’s smile only falters when hungry. Currently the Associate Editor of BBC's Top Gear Magazine, he’s formerly the Road Test Editor of CAR Magazine, and writes, presents and produces for various forms of television, magazines and newspapers. Most kinds of which include cars and usually some sort of fire.
From Channel 5’s 'Fifth Gear' to BBC America’s 'Mud, Sweat and Gears' and BBC Brit’s 'MotorHeads', Wookie is one of those people who doesn’t seem to sleep much — and yet still seems inordinately happy about… well, about everything.
In-between filming, he concentrates mainly on outrageous automotive travel/adventure stories, usually unsupported, and with a healthy dose of plausible deniability on behalf of the health and safety people. You’ll usually find him somewhere in the world, in a wholly inappropriate supercar, trying desperately to stop things from exploding.
