JULY 3, 2008
A celebration of note
Motor Sport magazine celebrated its 1000th edition in London this week with a pary in its new offices in Chelsea. Motor Sport was founded in 1924 as the Brooklands Gazette, but changed its name two years later. The monthly magazine continues to be one of the leading titles on both modern and historic racing. The party was attended by Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, Tony Brooks, Martin Brundle, David Richards and many other figures from the racing world, including fans such as Rowan Atkinson.
Now under new ownership, the magazine is enjoying a revival and has great ambitions to remain at the forefront of motor racing journalism, despite the Internet age.
Long may it continue!
