About Speed

Speed Motorsport News is a motorsport news & features magazine based in Great Britain, Europe.

The magazine is a part of Speed Publications Ltd., a company specialising in the production of editorially rich Web sites.

Speed is produced using Microsoft's FrontPage 97 software and the site is designed to be viewed at its best on either Microsoft Internet Explorer, or on Netscape.

Areas of expertise include BTCC, British Club Racing, Formula Saloons, Formula One, and the Indy Racing League. Rather than being primarily a news service, we are aiming to provide high quality features on motorsport in the UK and abroad. We are lucky to have some of Britain's finest motorsport photographers and writers on our contributors list.

Speed Publications Ltd. can offer a range of services.

Instead, look upon it as an opportunity to add value to your customer's or potential custoner's use of your services.

Make proper use of the Internet and your company will succeed like never before. Do it badly and you'll lose money in spectacular fashion. We can help you grow.
