“I had the pleasure of working with Alex at this year’s CarFest South event where he carried out an engaging, fun and informative Q&A with Mahindra Racing reserve driver Sam Dejonghe.  Despite the audience having a limited knowledge of Formula E, Alex’s enthusiasm, humour and personal knowledge ensured that the whole room was intrigued, and I think we left the session having gained a few more Mahindra Racing fans!”

Emma Stonier, Director, Revolution Communications

Alex Riley was our presenter at CarFest South and was a pleasure to work with. He was very adaptable and had a great sense of humour about all the weird and wonderful things we asked him to present! Alex was very professional with all of our content providers, main stage musicians and back of house staff, and engaged very well with the CarFest audience.
