The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has awarded the contract to publish its quarterly magazine to Motor Sport, one of the industry’s most respected publications.
MSA was launched at the start of 2011 by London-based contract publishing house, Think Publishing, who brought a new approach to the magazine, which is delivered free of charge to the governing body’s 44,000-strong membership.
The editorial content features news, features, debate, regulatory information, performance tips and exclusive interviews across the full spectrum of UK motor sport, making MSA magazine a must-read for all motor sport participants.
Ben Taylor, MSA Director of Development and Communications, said: “We are very excited to begin this relationship with Motor Sport, without doubt one of the most prestigious names in our sector. We must pay tribute to Think for their work over the past three years; they have developed the magazine into an interesting and engaging title that now makes its way to the coffee table, rather than the recycle bin.
“We are now moving back into the specialist motor sport environment and this tie-up feels like a natural fit for MSA and the logical next step for the publication. The specialist knowledge and creative input of the Motor Sport team will help us to move the magazine forwards and offer an even better product to our members.”
Damien Smith, Editor of Motor Sport, added: “MSA members spend a great deal of their time and money taking part and following motor sport and are incredibly knowledgeable, so we hope this news will be well-received. We aim to use our wealth of knowledge and experience to enhance what is already an excellent magazine.
“Moreover, Motor Sport is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, so winning this contract is another cause for celebration. Hopefully, this will be a partnership which lasts for some time to come.”
The contract commences with the publication of the Summer 2014 edition, published in May.
