Contributor: Charles White
Contributor Charles White's career has been somewhat chequered to put it mildly.
After an early career in which he tried many different jobs including an apprenticeship as a surgical instrument maker, a spell as a warehouseman for an American company in the Persian Gulf and a stint as a computer operator for NCR in London.
During the 1960's he took part in many motorcycle road races on Royal Enfield, NSU, Ducati and Bultaco motorcycles and twice competed in the Manx GP in the Isle of Man. In the 1970's he joined Home Tune where he amassed a huge technical knowledge on tuning motor cars and developed a very successful mobile engine tuning business to boot.
During his time with Home Tune, he wrote a number of technical articles and a carburettor manual for internal use; and he was involved in training other Home Tune franchisees.
Charles finally sold this business in 1988 and was involved as an independent trainer for various Test Equipment manufacturers until the mid 1990's.
In 1984 Charles started writing for Practical Motorist magazine (answering readers' queries) and during this time he became friends with David Simpson, Rodney Jacques and Graham Macbeth.
Very soon he was writing technical features for Practical Motorist and enjoyed his own column called 'Tuners Tales'.
Features for AutoTrade magazine followed and he wrote several very successful Trade Buyers Guides on 'What Diagnostic Test Equipment should I buy'.
During the early 1990's he wrote a series of carburettor manuals for Haynes publishing and in 1994 he launched a new company called Equiptech.
Equiptech developed the CAPS technical database, on CD-ROM, that provides technical information to independent garages on modern electronic systems.
Equiptech also produced a number of books for Haynes on engine management and wrote the support manual for the Lucas Laser electronic diagnostic tool.
Crypton and Sykes-Pickavant were other Equiptech customers for whom technical
manuals were written.
Equiptech was acquired by the Omitec group in September 2000 and, after a stint as Managing Director, Charles stepped down to concentrate on Motorsport journalism for the sport that he has always loved.
attends many car and motorcycle events each year including a number of classic race meetings.
He is a member of the Guild of Motoring Writers.
