Founded in 2009 and under new management as of May 2014, DoubleClutch.ca is one of Canada’s leading online automotive lifestyle magazines. We’re a diverse group with a lot to offer – each of our writers has his or her unique take on the automotive industry. We have performance drivers, hyper-milers, and an in-house antique car restorer. On our motorcycle side, we have seasoned riders with decades of experience, as well as some young blood with their own tastes and opinions. Rather than journalists who somehow ended up in the automotive world, we’re all truly passionate car and bike people who love to put our thoughts and opinions into words. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or feedback – we would love to hear your thoughts!
