GP Week : Issue 100
From the publisher 100 NOT OUT AS we all know, success in any sport comes from going the extra mile, doing the hard yards. If you want to win, contend for the title, there's no easy way. You need to put in to get out. This week is a numerical milestone for GPWEEK and, further into these pages, our three senior journalists reflect on their particular passion over that time. No need for me, then to reflect on the State of the Motorsport Nation. But 100 issues in, I'm starting to feel like the captain of a football team which has come out of nowhere to make the final four ... When GPWEEK launched, it was literally that -- a dive into the unknown, with a brand-new technology and an unknown audience. That GPWEEK has slotted in to the motorsport media, with its unique, virtual magazine style and world-wide reach, has been an achievement -- one not possible without the entire team putting in way above what could reasonably be expected ... From founding editor Will Buxton (now snatched by SpeedTV), to current editor, Gen-Y action-man Adam Hay-Nicholls, our two resident experts Michael Scott (MotoGP) and Martin Holmes (Rallying), F1 editorial assistant Naoise Holohan, F1 tech guru Paolo Filisetti, and recent recruit Peter Windsor, there's not a man who hasn't put in, as I said, way above and beyond the call. To a man they believe in the brave new world of GPWEEK and I am indebted to them all. Creatively, Cedric Dufour has headed the production team in Australia from the start with typical gallic flair, assisted for two seasons, editorially, by Australian Motorsport News editor Andrew van Leeuwen, recently Kieryn Hyde. The commercial world is just starting to understand GPWEEK and the job of explaining that during a GFC has been a tough one -- well done Richard Partridge. Thanks to those commercial entities who have 'got it' and chosen to be part of GPWEEK's evolution. We are getting there. More please! GPWEEK is not a big media company, nor part of one. So Keith Sutton's decision to join in the venture -- and of course supply the stunning images from the world's best independent motorsport photo agency, headed by Chief F1 photographer Mark Sutton -- has been crucial. Actually, that's quite a team, isn't it. I hope you are enjoying what we wanted GPWEEK to offer -- quality motorsport journalism across the three top disciplines, delivered digitally. The growing reader numbers suggest you do. Let's press on with the next 100. -- CHRIS LAMBDEN 6
