It is about six years since GP+ last increased its price and while we understand that this does not make a great deal of commercial sense, we still believe that we should keep the price as low as possible to encourage more people to join the GP+ team and get new insight into the sport and develop even greater passion for the sport.
The motto of the GP+ e-magazine is “It’s all about the passion” and that really tells you all you need to know about the publication. It is a magazine for people who are passionate about F1, and about motor racing in general. Those who subscribe often wonder why it took them so long to do it and we hope that many others will decide to give it a go this year.
The current calendar and the global expansion of F1 means that we need to raise the price from the current £29.99 to £32.99. That might seem like a big hike, but even without taking into the increasing costs incurred covering F1, inflation alone should mean that a 2009 magazine costing £29.99 would today be priced at £35.69.
The price rise will come into effect at 0900 GMT on Monday, January 11, so if you want to take advantage of the last few days at the current price, please feel free to do so.
GP+ is still an incredible bargain at £32.99 given that you get 24 magazines a year included in the package. In 2016 there will be 21 race editions which come out just hours after each F1 Grand Prix. These are between 75 and 100 pages each. In addition, you get season preview and season review editions, both of which are larger than the norm. And on top of that you get access to the 126-page 2015 season review, the biggest ever GP+, which is filled with insights about last season.
We want to share our passion with F1 fans and expanding the GP+ readership – and keeping the price as low as possible – is best achieved using word of mouth advertising, for which we depend on you. If you like what we do why not send this message to your friends and followers an help us spread the word.
