British Car magazine relaunched as
At 9:37 a.m. on the morning of Jan. 30, 2003, Motorsport Marketing, publishers of Grassroots Motorsports magazine, purchased British Car magazine. British Car magazine, which recently published its 100th issue, will relaunch as Classic Motorsports magazine this spring, expanding its coverage to include other classic makes and models.
Classic Motorsports will be all-color, perfect-bound and will start with at least 100 pages. Tim Suddard will be the publisher, and British Car magazine editor Gary Anderson has agreed to be editor of the new publication.
The April/May issue of British Car will be the last one to carry the old name and logo. British Car readers will see no interruption of service, as they will be the first to receive this new and expanded publication.
This marriage will provide to British Car readers more tech features, the project cars Grassroots Motorsports is famous for building as well as car show and vintage race event coverage, all while still maintaining the flavor that British Car readers have come to expect.
The first project cars planned for the new publication include an MG Midget and Porsche 911, while the magazine will also campaign a pair of vintage racers: Publisher Tim Suddard will continue to run his Triumph TR3 at East Coast events, while Editor Gary Anderson will campaign an MGA on the West Coast.
