MEDIA PACK 2014 A New Concept In Automotive Magazines In November 2010, AV8 Publishing Ltd launched one of the first, if not the first, free, all-digital classic and performance car magazines at the Footman James Classic Motor Show at the NEC, Birmingham. That magazine - Classic, Performance & Retro - has grown to become a popular title across all digital media formats, and some issues have been viewed by over 900,000 people worldwide. The team behind the idea came up with a well thought out plan; to create a well-presented publication packed with eye-catching, photo-rich features, package them together with the latest news, reviews and events from around the automotive world, and give it away FREE! In April 2013, the magazine was treated to a bit of a revamp, giving it a fresh, modern look, but best of all, we made it fully compatible with all mobile platforms, including Android based platforms, iPads and iPhones and all ‘smartphones’ and tablet computers. In short, we have tapped in to the fastest growing sector of the publishing industry, and the response to the new format has been nothing short of phenomenal. The image on the right shows a screenshot of the stats page, and the number highlighted in the red box shows how many impressions that issue has had.
