Alex Martin-Banzer was barely a year out of the womb before she attended the Mille Miglia in Italy. Her father is the publisher of Sports Car Market Magazine and host on TV’s What’s My Car Worth. Alex’s life around cars has been non-stop. She learned to shift at 10 years old in a VW Thing and from there double clutching in a Mini Cooper. The classic car hobby has taken her all over the world and provided opportunities to drive on tours, judge at concours events, orchestrate press launches for new sports cars and more. Currently Alex works at Daimler Trucks North American in Portland, Oregon where she’s expanding her knowledge in the mechanical world of automobiles with the iconic Mercedes brand.
