The Vintage Motorsport brand is growing in reach and engagement under RACER’s ownership

With the 2019 vintage racing season winding down, it’s a good time to tell you about the audience growth we’ve achieved since acquiring Vintage Motorsport magazine and VintageMotorsport.com earlier this year.

Vintage Motorsport already came with a stable paid and requested circulation of 10,513 from a distribution of 16,000 with a strong 72% subscriber renewal rate. So, we’ve focused on marketing the magazine via RACER’s print, digital and social media channels that reach and engage more than 1 million avid racing enthusiasts each month.

The Vintage Motorsport weekly e-newsletter now boasts a subscriber base of 10,253, and is now also benefiting from promotion on RACER’s digital channels.

Certainly, the largest growth has occurred with the online audience and engagement for the Vintage Motorsport brand.
