It is with great pleasure that we can announce today that this James Allen on F1.com blog will be moving onto the Motorsport Network, becoming part of the titles Motorsport.com, Autosport.com and Motor1.com.
Although the reach will greatly increase worldwide, nothing will change about the core values of the site which have always been providing authoritative insight and analysis from the inside of F1 to help fans get closer to the sport.
And we will maintain our other vital DNA; interactivity with the audience. Just this week we had over 1,000 comments in a single day from readers, who love the informed discussion and debate in the comments section.
We are proud of what we have achieved with this blog since 2009; we created the first FOTA Fans Forum and over the last eight years have done many things to connect the fans with the sport. Now the sport is finally moving in that direction itself, which is to be applauded.
And JAonF1 needs to evolve too. I’m really excited to be making this move at this time.
I’ve always been one to embrace change and with so much movement and change in our industry at present, this is the right moment and the right partner.
For the past 18 months I have been working in parallel with the Motorsport Network team on a number of video projects. In that time I have seen an organization consolidating its prodigious assets, acquiring others of importance and setting a clear vision for the future; a vision that spans motorsport and automotive, gaming, events, commerce and technology.
At the same time, building my own web site, James Allen on F1, and social media presence has taught me a lot about how to engage fans using the new digital tools and platforms.
I’m delighted to be bringing JA on F1 and my digital content business into the Motorsport Network and look forward to developing it with the new management team.
Thanks for your support.
And I hope you will continue to support JAonF1 and to send in your comments.
