for Number Nine. As the eighth editor of this illustrious publication and, a er five years and 61 issues, this is my final one at the helm.
What an honour it has been to work for one of the great magazines in South African media and it’s been immensely rewarding to see CAR both resist the print decline and expand into a content brand with a signi cant following online across our website and social-media platforms.
The key to all of this, of course, is the dedicated and professional team putting its automotive passion and experience into every word, image and video you see in this magazine and on Carmag.co.za. Kudos to you, Team CAR. I’ve worked in a number of editorial teams over the years and I can honestly say I’ve never before encountered a crew this talented and knowledgeable. I’ve learnt much.
I doff my cap to you holding this magazine, too, because no other title enjoys a readership as involved and informed as CAR’S. We’re a nation of petrolheads, super passionate about our hard-working Hiluxes, 325i Gusheshes, slammed Honda Type Rs and vintage Porsches ... and nowhere is that enthusiasm more evident than in the readership of this magazine.
On behalf of the CAR team, my sincere thanks for your support. As ever, your favourite magazine will continue with its commitment to deliver world-class automotive content.
Number Nine, the wheel is yours.
