Storm in a tea-cup, then.

The quoted bit of puff . . . offers exactly what I do not want from a specialist magazine - unless the "behind the scenes snippets" are to be technical. Racing cars are highly technical objects and we engineers (and some non-engineers I think) might be interested in what's done and why, but I do not expect any of that.

Today Editor Joe Dunn seems to think that by sending that puff out again as an e-mail we will be impressed. If he reads this, I can say to him that I am not.

I'm liking it, think Joe Dunn has got the ship turning in the right direction, much better font, impactful use of images, like that Jennie Gow is in and some others have gone (Meaden), and bringing Lunch futher forward. The Brabham story was a good one to. 


My sub has just finished and I'd given up with the previous version but might just hang around to see whats in next month, hopefully no more Hamilton.

I have the opposite impression. To me the changes seem to be a net negative. I have long since allowed my subscription to lapse and just cherry pick the issues that interest me as they come out.
