F1 Racing magazine hits SA shores thanks to HSM

12 March 2014 in Sport

Highbury Safika Media has successfully launched F1 Racing, the South African edition, which is in selected stores right now for only R35 incl VAT. There are 132 glossy pages incorporating everything you need to know about the upcoming 2014 Formula One season.


There is a complete rundown on all 19 circuits that will be used, profiles on the teams and drivers and expert analysis and opinion from both South Africa and abroad relating to the season. The cover features the four-time champion, Sebastian Vettel, as well as Lewis Hamilton, who is the bookmakers' favourite to win the championship.


'We had a lot of fun putting the launch issue together,' explains HSM sports editorial director Gary Lemke. 'While the content is printed under licence from Haymarket Media in the UK, we have infused local content and that includes a column by Sasha Martinengo, who is a household name in motoring circles in South Africa, while we have also investigated whether the country will be able to host a Grand Prix, and where, in the foreseeable future. F1 Racing really is a quality magazine.'
