From the FIA Formula E Championship, to Goodwood Festival & Revival, to pit reports at the Blancpain GT Series, Nicki Shields has seen a lot in her career as a presenter. Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are just some of the big names in the motorsport world she has interviewed.
Not only is her reputation as a motorsport presenter top notch - her FIA awards and Autosport Awards speak for themselves. She has been an advocate of hybrid and all-electric vehicles for years, strives to live a sustainable lifestyle, and in that wake has hosted series for CNN such as "Supercharged" and "Saved By the Future." As the first female media representative, she drove the Formula E race car and most recently the all-electric SUV in the new Extreme E racing series.
From musical performer from America to Changing Lanes Host in Germany: Jonathan Tilley has experienced a lot in his career. In 2006, he swapped his dancing shoes for a microphone and headphones and lent his voice to various companies. Since the birth of Changing Lanes, he has reported on the history of the BMW 3 Series, explained where the BMW slogan comes from, or interviewed inspiring people for the podcast - like his childhood hero Alex Zanardi in Episode #006. And when he's not behind the mic for Changing Lanes, he travels the world and discovers the local cuisine.
