Jim Kenzie is Canada's foremost automotive journalist. He has been Chief Auto Reviewer for The Toronto Star's Wheels section which is approaching 30 years as Canada's leading automotive publication. He also maintains a blog on www.thestar.blogs.com/Kenzie/
He appears on "Kenzie's Korner" on TSN'S Motoring, Canada's most-watched and most-authoritative automotive television program, now in its 25th season, which places it among the longest-running television programs in the world, not simply Canada.
Jim's work also appears in a variety of magazines, newspapers and web sites around the world.
Jim was the inaugural winner of the Journalist of the Year Award, presented by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. He serves on juries to select the Canadian Car and Utility Vehicle of the Year, the North American Car and Truck of the Year, and the International Engines of the Year.
He has been an active, licenced, professional-grade racing driver since his early-twenties, and is a three-time Targa Newfoundland Rally Open Division driving champion.
Jim has a life-long interest in traffic safety, which actually pre-dates his automotive journalism career. This is why he selected SMARTRISK as the beneficiary of his annual photography calendar. As the calendar enters its eighth year of production, he is delighted to now be supporting SMARTRISK's successor, Parachute.
He hopes you enjoy the calendar!
Jim lives in Halton Hills Ontario, where he keeps his lovely 1977 American Motors Hornet hatchback in his Barn.
