I believe these 2 guys are with Road & Track who recently announced they are closing their office in Newport Beach after 60 years there. The office is moving to Detroit, this should be the final move to get rid of the few remaining longtime journalists left at R&T, & C&D. I would guess the online tire test was targeted at increasing subscriptions from younger readers than the traditional audience. I'm out!
