No, I don't care to. Yes, I'll buy it, because I always buy the Le Mans supplement edition and the race report edition each year. The front cover, despite being there to sell, should not have comments such as it does. If anything, it debases the magazine itself in the eyes of those readers who don't care to be herded like sheep....

It's not a myth really, when I worked in the industry, hours upon hours were spent on front covers, and lfar less attention given to content.

It's why people don't buy the damn things anymore, emperors new clothes.

Autosport were always going to splash the Alonso headline despite it only being his second drive for Toyota, the real human interest story would have been that I 85 on Toyota's first attempt to win the race Satoru Nakajima led the driver line up and all these years later when they finally win the race his son Kazuki crosses the finishing line.

I’d have gone with the simple “Alonso wins Le Mans!” On the cover. Massive letters. With the sub headline “in some sort of car”. Mainly to annoy.

Hopefully it means more pick up a copy and experience our sport.

Although the real headline is that Ayesdasi and chunder agree on something.

More seriously. I’ve not read much of it, but so far it’s as good as the dedicated sportscar press in prose.

I'm sure I recall us agreeing about something else 4-5 years ago......

I have war,ed to endurance racing in recent years actually, although LM this year was pretty abysmal.

But, other events like Bathurst and a few others have held my attention far longer than they used to.

You have to expect Hayshed to go on about it, I would imagine Brown probably said "make it so"

All I do use it for now is their forum which is great for a wind up, thought utterly obsessed with F1.

Agree completely, that's why I retired from there.

I found this quite funny; especially since they are both on the Newsstands at the same time, sometimes right next to each other.

The joys of a weekly publication over a monthly one.

I do think the journalists, as they are predominantly the same for both mags, should of done some off the record research as the deal won't of been done since the current issue of F1 hit the stands.

There are too many sponsors of both teams to inform for the negotiations to have been done in a couple of weeks.

Maybe the journalists couldn't find the story to copy and paste before the current issue of F1 racing went to print.

There is an error in this article.
https://www.autosport.com/wec/news/1...-brands-record

They mention that Brands Hatch Graham Hill bend was remodelled in 2003, but it wasn't, it was 1999, (well, the winter of 1998/1999).
