Classic & Sports Car – Classic & Sports Car and COVID-19: a word from the Editor

For the latest classic car news, features, buyer’s guides and classifieds, sign up to the C&SC newsletter here


While the global outbreak of COVID-19 has forced events to be cancelled, venues closed and people’s movements restricted, the Classic & Sports Car team is working hard to fill our website and magazine with the very best classic-car content, to entertain you even when you can’t leave your home.

At a time like this, when we all face an unprecedented challenge to our very way of life, it seems almost frivolous to talk about old cars.

And yet now perhaps more than ever before we need our passions, both for the distraction they can provide from the difficulties that beset us in our everyday lives and the community that we have created around them – a community upon which we can all call for kinship and support.

So, as ever, on the first Thursday of every month, expect a brand-new edition of your favourite classic-car magazine, with all our regular columns and features, packed full of exciting, interesting and evocative gems – the perfect escapism in troubled times.

We understand that many of you might be self-isolating and unable to buy the magazine from the newsstand, but you don’t have to miss out. There will be no interruption in our subscription service, plus you can take advantage of our six issues for £6 special offer here.

There are also several ways of getting the magazine digitally, either bundled with the magazine, separately here, or on services including ReadlyExact Editions and Zinio.

What’s more, you can catch up with the magazine by buying back issues online here.

And don’t forget about our Ferrari, Supercar, Mercedes, American, Aston Martin, Porsche and Jaguar Greatest Hits, weighty tomes to help pass the time.

But that’s not all. Our online community is here, too, to amuse, inform and offer support. Regular updates to this website will mean there’s plenty to read, and you can sign up to our newsletter to get all the latest from C&SC in your inbox twice a week.

Plus, there are our friendly social media channels. Join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest features, photos, news, chit-chat and more – we love hearing from you.

In fact, it would be great if you could tell us the stories about your cars and your classic history, to share them with fellow enthusiasts. Why not email us?

In the meantime, stay safe, take care of yourselves and each other, and we can’t wait to see you out on the road or at one of our wonderful classic car events when the calendar gets under way once again.
