The magazine began in June 1960 as “On The Grid” and was known as “America’s Motor Sports Magazine”. The title was changed in February 1961 to “Today’s Motor Sport’s” and was known as “The Racing Pictorial Magazine” due to it’s focus on photo journalism. The magazine ceased publishing in January 1964 due to a fire at the publishing house. Issues also include international/national/local race reports, entry lists, race schedules, photos, ads and feature articles Everything is copied to a mid-sized USB flashdrive (4GB, PC and Apple compatible) and organized by year and month. The scanned archive has been run through an OCR program (optical character recognition) is now completely searchable by keyword. Save time and money whether you are searching for articles listing a driver, track or a particular marque.
This format allows for ease of use and portability.
