As pre-season testing is on in almost every major category and that is mostly done during the week, not at weekends, it’s not as straight forward as during the season to get the editorial deadline right. And it clearly doens’t help at all if you got your layout prepared for a title story that turns out be a flop. Redoing the entire opening pages for issue no. 2 was – in principle – an unnecessary extra amount of work we could well have done without. But here you go, some times you depend on professionals doing their part of the job. When that doens’t happen, you’re in the trap, like it or not.
Our new title story about the Toyota TS030 Hybrid is actually more fitting for a environment conscious publication as P1Mag-eZine and Toyota Racing have done a great job to build a revolutionary LMP1 race car that has already done a first endurance test of 30 hours running in grace straight away.
Of course we haven’t dropped F1 altogether, you will find at least a couple of lines on the Mercedes F1 W03 and a summary on the first day of the official F1 tests sessions in Barcelona, as well as reports on IndyCar, MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 test days.
Also the Stock Car season is under way, so you’ll find reports on the Daytona 500 qualifying, the Budweiser Shootout and the ARCA Series season-opener plus a report in the second round of NHRA’s Full Throttle Drag Racing Series.
