Written only as fan (of the sport, journalism and above all the people) but as everyone reflects on a brilliant Rally GB I also hope they pause on the rumoured demise of the bulk of the UK media covering motorsport - Autosport, F1 Racing and Motorsport (Motoring) News.

Of course I spent a decade working for two of the three, but the same two were also what fuelled my passion for the sport and made Wednesdays and Thursdays the best days of the week. The world is online now we’re told, but to toss their heritage away is heart breaking

To toss it away by grinding the titles into the ground even more so (if rumours of imminent, off-the-scale price rises are true) and more so because of the talented, dedicated people being put in impossible positions by these jaw-dropping decisions

Out of the loop, but what's the story there, Jim?

Word is that next week’s Autosport will be £10.99, next F1 R £16.99. They won’t sell the titles as they want to drive everyone to motorsport dotcom - they just want to shut down as they fear a buyer being a rival (but, to be clear, this is strong rumour, not from horse’s mouth).

Are they seriously considering turning the printers off?

Not necessarily limited to print, word has it

If that's true - and the price hike - it's a black day for motorsport journalism. £10.99 is glossy coffee table brochure prices, not a weekly magazine. If they want to kill it, at least do it honourably
