Wilmer is a political science and journalism graduate who also has qualifications in brand management and advertising. In 2001 he joined Die Burger as a journalist and was appointed deputy editor of Wheels24 in July that year. In April 2006 Media24 appointed him editor of Wheels24, making him one of the youngest editors of South Africa's biggest online motoring publication. Readers can interact with car manufacturers through a controversial Q&A session and also enjoy the Alternative Car of the Year Awards, where they get to vote for "gay�, "straight� and "corrupt politicians'� cars. With Wilmer at the helm, Wheels24 this year achieved a record readership figure of 205 000 users, almost 75 000 ahead of its closest competitor. Wheels24 is the only online motoring publication not aligned to a printed title and is therefore the only fully-fledged motoring title in its own right.
