Some rumours floating around on Twitter tonight about Autosport, F1 Racing and MN. Joe Saward commented saying he'd heard the same stories so maybe something in it? Something about massive price hikes for print editions to force people into online only.

Lots of conflicting stories / rumours at the moment.

I sincerely hope that Kevin will be OK, whatever is happening.

Autosport magazine to stop printing magazines at the end of the year

So sad, I buy almost all of them these last few years. I have some dating back to the 60's and have bought them regularly since 1983. Damn, so freaking sad....

I hope this isn't true....

Just been on Twitter and the following tells a story

You can't run a big magazine on so few readers.

Someone told me print is making a comeback. I'm not so sure.

Like vinyl or 8mm cine film?

Very sad if it happens, and a great shame for those employed by Haymarket, but the cost of buying glossy weekly mags is prohibitive for many folk nowadays. I read Autosport on a tablet via a subscription app that has countless titles from all over the world, but I guess it's a digitised print copy, so maybe that option would disappear as well......

It looks like the Formula Money owner is speculating. Agreed it is based on that distribution but this may become a self fulfilling prophecy, thereby putting a number of people out of work!

He's ignoring Autosport International, which must be a good profit centre. Likewise the web subscriptions must also support the business. The paper copy is for weekly ad hoc sales and I don't know about anyone on here, but if I go to get a copy on a Saturday there is usually none to be had.

He's also probably in the pay of someone with an interest in the market.

Very sad indeed, if it is true. I bought Autosport religiously every week from 1972-2004, only stopping when I moved here & just buying an occasional copy when in England. It has dropped-off quite considerably in recent years, although I bought one in England the week before Goodwood & thought it had improved somewhat - Kevin's influence is very obvious & he is to be congratulated.

For me, the most worrying thing is that there will no longer be a source to look back for information etc. I've picked-up one or two early sixties issues in recent times for some research & they are surprisingly informative.

Yes it's probably best to keep comments to one thread.

This one has more info

Most "magazines" are electronic now. I'm not in favour but a number of things may drive this decision. Don't forget the "green" lobby who want to cut down the use of paper. Then there's the convenience of on line info and the immediacy. On this last point Twitter gets info out quicker than Autosport. Also many people appear to believe on line info from unconfirmed sources rather than highly qualified journalists.

Autosport International has been dying on its arse for years, smaller stands, less exhibitors, larger 'feature' displays, noticebly smaller crowds. Every year I am surprised to see the banner displaying next years dates. When the banner doesn't appear that is the last year, it happened with Max Power Live.

I think this is sad (mainly for the people involved as I do enjoy their YouTube channel) but the magazines quality has suffered greatly in the last five years (if not more). So this isnít the greatest loss.
