Julien Amado

When his elementary school teacher asked Julien what he wanted to do when he grew up, his answer was “the same thing as Alain Prost.” His love for everything on two or four wheels has only gotten stronger ever since, particularly auto racing from the 1980s to this day.

Following his Journalism studies in Paris, Julien began his career as a motorcycle writer in 2007. For more than six years, he worked for French magazine Moto Revue, lighting up roads and tracks with virtually all the bikes you can name, from ordinary 125cc rides to actual Le Mans racers.

Julien switched to cars after moving to Canada, first as a contributor to the Quebec version of Autoblog, then as a member of the editorial staff at Protégez-Vous magazine where he was in charge of the automotive content. He is now a permanent auto journalist at The Car Guide.
