His name is Patrick George and he is a road tester for the ever popular Jalopnik.com website and he crashed a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro test mule during a press drive at Belle Isle State Park in Detroit last Sunday.
Motoring manufactures use motoring journalists as part of an existential marketing campaign, they fly them out to all expenses paid test location’s just to preview the latest cars. Sounds like an idyllic job right. It is, no question about it. Its a “I scratched your back now give me a good review” relationship.
The problem is some motoring hacks take themselves rather too seriously, and so George had his day cut short and was told to pack his bags by Chevrolet after crashing his Camaro test mule. We don’t think Chevrolet will be calling back anytime soon.
