About Drive RSA

What we’re about? Well cars of course, but (almost) more importantly Drive RSA is about entertainment.

What we’re aiming at? South African motor journalism has a missing link. Whilst those in the market to purchase a car have been catered for with endless detail and informative journalism, those looking for a good read and a bit of a laugh have not. We felt there was a need for someone in the middle, catering for both sides of the fence, a link if you will. Drive RSA intends to be that link using a blend of youthful exuberance and creative talent.



Miles Downard 

Miles’ interest in motoring began at a young age, when on the way to school his father would explain, in precise detail, the workings the internal combustion engine. (Poor chap never had a chance) Like many young boys, Miles’ schoolboy obsession soon saw him become a devoted motorsport fanatic, spending mass amounts of time to the love of his life – Formula One. Miles even attended the French Grand Prix to support his team (the red one). Apart from Formula one Miles spends most of his time attending local KZN rally events and updating his extensive knowledge on cars. 2007 saw Miles begin his motor journalism career. It wasn’t long before he was accepted as a provisional member to the South African Guild of Motor Journalists as his enthusiasm and flare caught the eye of readers. Currently he is motoring editor at BizNews.com and creator of driveRSA.
