About The Road Beat

The Road Beat was founded at the turn of the millennium by Lawrence Weitzman in Northern California. His son, Mitchell, continues the Road Beat today, providing expert car reviews and world-class photographs of the latest new cars to consumers.

Mitchell Weitzman grew up in Placerville, CA. Having been around cars since birth, it's only natural he came to have a great love for these amazing machines. He holds a rare and distinct honor of attending every Monterey Car Week and Pebble Beach Concours since birth. 2020 was the first time not attending after it was canceled. Thanks 'Rona. 

Mitchell graduated with honors from UC Santa Barbara, attaining a degree in English Literature. His love of writing and cars were only natural to be combined at some point. 

Mitchell has done numerous track days across America, including Laguna Seca, Circuit of the Americas, Palm Beach, Thunderhill, and the Thermal Club. His first car was a cheap and high-mileage E36 325is BMW which still remains his favorite, even years after selling it. He enjoys photography immensely and sees it as a way to tell a story about cars and people.

Mitchell's hobbies (besides aforementioned cars and photography) include Formula 1 and Le Mans/Sports Car racing, scotch, movies, house design, and just getting out and exploring.
