Undeterred by the failure of BusinessF1 and being embroiled in a number of lawsuits involving the likes of the FIA’s Richard Woods and the defunct Simtek team, the magazine’s former editor Tom Rubython has returned with a new publication: “SportsPro”.
“SportsPro” has a decidedly similar look to “BusinessF1” (see images right and below), but Rubython is broadening his scope beyond Formula 1. It will be interesting to see if F1 gets much coverage in the new magazine, or whether Rubython has had enough of that particular sport.
At present its website has little to say about the magazine, only offering the option to subscribe.
Interestingly the website for “BusinessF1” is still up and running, apart from the subscription page. It describes the title as, “the international monthly publication for the business of Formula One… a must read for decision-makers in the burgeoning Formula One industry.” The spoof website “RubyBusiness” is still live as well…
A rival Formula 1 business magazine “The Paddock” was started last year by a different editorial team.
Updated:Correction – Mr Rubython has pointed out that the change of title from “BusinessF1” to “SportsPro” was a planned move and that the publication had not “failed”. F1Fanatic.co.uk is happy to make this correction.
