Bad news, Autosport magazine is now shipping their magazines by ocean to the USA!

Auto Sport has decided that American F1 fans aren't worth the cost of air freighting their magazines anymore. We'll be getting the Autosports 5-weeks or so late like F1 Racing now. Meaning you'll get to read about Singapore when you should be reading about Sochi. Brilliant job, guys! I know, I won't buy them anymore....

But, at least the Italian weekly, Auto Sprint, will continue sending their mags by air. Who would have ever imagined that the Italians were more proficient then the British?

My local news agent sells 5 a week, upon hearing the news, they have already canceled their future orders. Sucks, but it is what it is....

I cant remember but do they offer a digital only edition?

My memory is that you used to have to have a subscription to the printed copy and then got digital for "free".

I cant see why they wouldnt offer a digital only edition at a significant discount as printing and delivery costs would be negligible. Of course digital only editions are not as user friendly to read imho, but better than being 5 weeks late!

You can buy a digital only edition of "Motorsport" magazine, and you get it one day earlier than the print edition, apparently, but it is the same cost per issue as the print subscription, so it can be done.

I'm under the impression that my subscription copy of Autosport is sometimes sent to me in Leicestershire via the USA and by ship, the delivery is often late, if at all. I too have considered cancelling my paper subscription and relying on getting the 'news' just from their website as when the magazine arrives late, I've already learned every piece of 'news' it contains!

Just go digital - I'm in Australia and did that a few years ago. Personally it suits me much better.

It should mean that it now arrives just after the news item they were speculating about has just not happened.

Gave it up years ago, sadly.

Exactly: the main cost is the journalistic production. That's why a digital subscription isn't much cheaper.

Must be a Leicestershire thing, i got fed up with mine arriving on Monday and didn't bother renewing,
my Motorsport subscription is about to run out and i probably wont bother with that either they're main interviews are with people of my era - Pirro etc
and why have a piece about watches it's supposed to be a car magazine not horologists monthly.
