Randle Engineering, consulted as thought leader by Autocar

Steve Randle of Randle Engineering was featured in Autocar this week (24th May), one of the world’s most reputable and oldest car magazines.

The Kings of Ride and Comfort group test, ‘Ride and Joy’, conducted in the stunning Bannau Bycheiniog, also known as the Brecon Beacons, saw Matt Saunders of Autocar, test five vehicles past and present. Matt invited Steve and Jonathan Palmer, of Palmer Sport, ex Formula 1 driver for their expert opinions.

The team at Autocar assembled the following vehicles to take a considered view on ride and comfort. Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII, Bentley Flying Spur V8 Azure, Range Rover P440e Autobiography, Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and BMW i7 xDrive60 M Sport, a pretty impressive stack of metal!

After devoting himself to a career of engineering consultancy, Steve has the extensive experience and freedom of thought be the perfect person for this brief. Steve retains a hands-on role at Randle Engineering, his passion sits with the ongoing involvement in mechanical engineering and the area of vehicle dynamics. His expertise is sought industry far and wide as mirrored by Matt Saunders below.

“ride and comfort being not only a complicated but also subjective question, we decided not to tackle it on our own. Providing an alternative and especially expert take was Steve Randle of Randle Engineering, a man with an impeccable CV in vehicle dynamics engineering on which the McLaren F1 can be found”.
