Lights Go Out

Short Circuit, a magazine devoted to stock car and hot rod racing has crossed the finish line. The publisher writes:

“sales are no longer sufficient to keep the printed version of the magazine going. I have made several cut-backs over the last few seasons to match the falling sales … and to make any further cutbacks in either content, quality or colour would see even less sales so it’s time to draw a line…after all it’s only fair to our loyal advertisers, and equally our long-standing (and long suffering!) contributors who have stood by us …. Publishing the magazine for 24 of the 35 years, it wasn’t just a job, or a hobby – it was a way of life.
