KOJI OZAWA

Contributor: Best Car, Engine, Lapita, CarGraphic, Smart, Begin, Takarajima, Form

Ozawa tells us that after he graduated from university, he started working at a certain Japanese carmaker before deciding that the publishing game was his calling.

Having completed a short time as an assistant editor at Japan's prestigious Navi magazine, he soon made the switch to freelance 'variety' motor journalist and has never looked back. His slightly off-beat yet always entertaining approach to the discipline sees his services on demand from specialist motoring magazines to lifestyle publications to weekly radio shows.

As a judge for Japan's Car of the Year award, Ozawa loves cars, currently owning a 911 Carrera 2, Mini Cooper and a Rolls Royce Cornishe.
