Hello, and welcome to this piece of internet.
My name’s Charlie Eustice, and I’m a 22-year-old Sport Journalism student of the University of Brighton. I should, with any luck, graduate later in 2016, at which point I intend to become employed, taking the first important step towards
world domination success!
I’ve been a keen lover of Formula 1 since I was 4; one of my earliest memories is of David Coulthard crashing at Spa-Francorchamps in 1998 and causing that enormous accident.
It was not until 2012 that I realised I could combine my love for F1 and writing, and so I started posting on a blog called ‘Eus-less Information’, however, I changed the name and migrated to WordPress later on, resulting in this site, which I like to think of as a digital portfolio.
In July 2014 I was granted an amazing opportunity to meet Daniel Ricciardo thanks to a competition on a site called Badger GP. Afterwards, I made sure to keep in contact, and managed to earn myself a role with them as a Staff Writer in October of that year. A repository of content for them can be found here.
Since joining the team, I’ve gone on to get media accreditation for Autosport International in 2015 and 2016, Red Bull’s summer ‘Openhouse’ event, and the final Pre-Season F1 test in Barcelona. My next goal is to attend a Grand Prix with accreditation.
On this blog you can expect to find incredibly sporadically-posted race reports for F1, and maybe WRC and Formula E, if you’re lucky.
I only ever use royalty/copyright-free images for my featured images, so as not to incur the wrath of Getty or independent photographers.
I dabble in Twitter-related shenanigans via @CGEustice, and have recently started trying to make a go of YouTube as well, playing video games, occasionally talking about them, and otherwise larking around.
Thanks for checking out my blog (New look for 2016) and hopefully you’ll be back here soon!
All the best, Charlie.
