Nick Carter – Max Communications:
“In a modern age where everyone with a computer fancies themselves as a blogger, Matt is a rare find – a proper journalist who knows how to find and tell an engaging story, accurately and against a deadline, and one who is also in tune with the latest developments in social media and electronic publishing. Dedicated, hard-working and personable, Matt is also a fount of motorsport knowledge.”
Hannah James – YourRacingCar.com
“With the best will in the world, it doesn’t matter how well we perform as a racing team at a weekend if we don’t tell anyone about it. Despite huge TV audiences and great trackside crowds, the most powerful PR we do is through the written word.
“Whether it’s breaking a big news story or dealing with some tricky situations, Matt is the only person we feel is worth consulting. He’s been involved in the most important developments in YRC’s history and his integrity and innovative approach has no competitor.”
Tony Lynch – British Rallycross Championship driver:
“Receiving the award for best promoted team in the British Rallycross Championship in 2011 is testament to Matt’s professionalism and the work he has done for Team Geriatric.
“Having Matt handling our PR has turned a gang of lads competing because we love motorsport into a team that our fellow professionals feel is the best promoted in the paddock.
“The fact that we are now seen as one of the best promoted, as well as best presented, teams in the British Rallycross Championship is down to the work Matt has done to help promote us, and I have to thank him for all his help.”
Peter Still – PSP Images:
“I have had the pleasure of working with Matt on numerous occasions and as always his professionalism shines through. His standard of work, whether it be writing a news story or producing a PR piece, is always of the highest quality. His enthusiasm and knowledge of motorsport, along with way he presents his work is a pleasure to be associated with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Matt Salisbury and the service he could bring to you.”
Martyn Bell – British Touring Car Championship driver:
“Matt has been a massive help during my time in the BTCC, and its safe to say that a little garage owner from Lincolnshire wouldn’t have started over 100 races and completed four seasons without his support. The advice given and the extra coverage he has secured for me and my sponsors has been fantastic and he has become a valued member of the team.”
Bryn Williams – Crash Media Group:
“Matt was an integral part of Crash Media Group Limited after joining the company back in 2004, growing in stature from a junior ranking journalist to the role of editor of www.crash.net, the UK’s busiest and most comprehensive motorsport portal.
“Matt is a mature, responsible, dependable, conscientious and utterly professional individual. Whether a news story breaks at mid-day or at midnight, he can always be relied upon to deliver in a timely and professional manner, a skill which is imperative in today’s cut and thrust world of online deadlines and insatiable demands of the internet.
“Matt was a welcome attendee during management meetings, helping to mould the future editorial direction of Crash.net and working closely with the technical and commercial teams, showing an ability to motivate individuals within a high pressured environment.
“I cannot praise Matt highly enough for the loyalty and dedication that he has shown to CMG. I have absolutely no hesitation in praising him to the rafters and should I ever be in a position to work with him again full-time, would not need to think twice about hiring him. He would always be my first choice!”
Andy Marlor – formerly of Crash.net Radio:
“I have known Matt since 2004 – and we worked together on numerous projects at Crash.net and also since Matt was Freelance. Matt’s broadcasting skillset and motorsport knowledge made him invaluable for our productions.
“Matt is great fun to work with and I always had great confidence in what he produced for us. In addition everything was always completed with speed and accuracy. It was a real pleasure to have worked with him.
“I’d happily recommend Matt’s work and look forward to working with him again.”
Paul O’Neill – British Touring Car Championship driver:
“Working with Matt during the season has been great and he has done a fantastic job with our PR, helping to get us good coverage that is vital for our sponsors.”
