If you enjoy writing and have more than a passing interest in classic road and race cars, we want to hear from you. Petrolicious is seeking aspiring and professional automotive journalists alike to create and edit editorial content on a part-time and potentially full-time basis. Experience in the industry, with writing and/or editing, and with creating web content is a definite plus, but not a strict requirement. Each application should include a portfolio of automotive-focused writing, especially so for those without industry experience. The ideal candidate will have a passion for the types of vehicles and events featured in our articles, possess more than surface knowledge about them, and will be excited to tell the next set of stories about their pasts, presents, and futures.

The job will involve writing and rewriting, editing, interviewing, necessary research, and other work concerned with the production of editorial content. Those who are also photographers with access to events and vintage cars are of course welcome to inquire as well. Regardless, please read the following before applying. We look forward to hearing from you.

Very interesting suggestion. But now I work with the educational company Write My Essay Online.
A few weeks ago I wrote an article about interesting facts about Formula-1.
I think that every person often heard about this competition.
Formula-1 is the world championship in ring races. The cars have their own characteristics – all have open wheels. The championship is held in several stages throughout the year.
