Larry Webster has been named editor-in-chief of Road & Track, it was announced today by James B. Meigs, editorial director for the Hearst Men’s Enthusiast Group. Webster joins Road & Track on June 4, replacing Matt DeLorenzo, who will transition into an advisory role for the magazine.

Since January 2010, Webster had been automotive editor of Hearst’s Popular Mechanics, overseeing the development of the magazine’s automotive content across print, web, broadcast and tablet platforms. He was also responsible for managing the auto staff, editing all automotive content and writing reviews and features. Previously, Webster was the Detroit editor for Popular Mechanics since August 2008.

“Road & Track is a storied brand with a deep footprint in the automotive world,” Meigs said. “I’m glad to welcome Larry on board to lead the team and oversee the transition to Michigan. His wealth of experience will deepen the relationship that Road & Track has with its readers and also enhance the offerings of the brand.”

Meigs added,“We appreciate all of Matt’s work on the Road & Track brand, particularly during its integration into the Hearst portfolio, and value his assistance during this transition.”

Road & Track will relocate its offices from Newport Beach, Calif., to Ann Arbor, Mich., where Hearst’s other automotive title, Car and Driver, is based. During the transition process, the Newport Beach office will remain open into the fall.

“Road & Track is the magazine that turned me into a car enthusiast, so it’s an incredible honor to be asked to get behind the wheel of this iconic brand,” Webster said. “Moving the team to Ann Arbor will put us right in the middle of all the exciting developments this industry has to offer, and that’s something I’m thrilled about.”

Before joining Popular Mechanics, Webster was technical director of Car and Driver from 2004 to 2008, where he managed a team of editors and writers, and was the magazine’s chief test driver and instructor. He was also the host of Car and Driver Television from 2002 to 2005, where he was the on-camera talent, as well as scriptwriter and stunt driver. From 1995 to 2004, Webster was technical editor for Car and Driver.

Webster is an amateur race car driver who has competed on over a dozen of North America’s premier circuits and is a serial collector of vintage cars, which he restores in his home shop. He has a mechanical engineering degree from Lehigh University and is a graduate of several Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) programs.

Road & Track (RoadandTrack.com), published by Hearst Magazines, is the longest-running automotive magazine brand in the United States. The content that is provided by Road & Track across a variety of platforms is intended for the passionate automotive enthusiast and contains information about cars and driving combined with wide-ranging feature stories and racing coverage. Road & Track’s road tests and comparison tests set the industry standard for precision, focusing primarily on domestic and imported sports cars and sports sedans that are a cut above the ordinary in performance, handling, engineering and efficiency—cars that are above all, fun to drive.
