OK guys, it's time to clear a few things up.
As I am sure most of you know by now, I do not work for Express anymore, I finished up with the guys around August this year and started my own little company, but more on that in a minute.
Back in 2010 I was asked if I would like to leave Extreme and take on the Associate Editor's role of 4WD Action, which was an incredible opportunity. Naturally, I took the role. In the scheme of things with Extreme, this was somewhere around issue 10-12 (my memory is a little sketchy as this was some time ago) and sadly for Extreme, I was not replaced so the mag had no Editor to steer the ship.
Fast forward to the present. I was recently approached by the guys from Express and they wanted to know if I would be interested in producing an all-new mag for them on a contract basis. The key for me was that I will have complete control over the content, so we agreed to terms and the contract was signed! The new title will be called Off-Road Addiction and it kicks off in April next year. My company will produce it, Express will publish it. Content will be mostly hardcore stuff, lots of comp rigs, tough club rigs, maybe even the odd tube buggy or two! naturally there will be plenty of relevant tech, DIY's etc. I really hope this will be the mag that you all want to read!
But like any publication, it really does come down to what you guys want. I'd love to hear what you would all like to see in the new mag. Feel free to shoot me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
anytime with your thoughts and feedback.
In the meantime, we are always looking for cool hardcore rigs to feature in the mag, so if you reckon your fourby has what it takes, let me know! We will also be running a photo comp in each issue, so be sure to send us your best hardcore pics to be in with a chance to win!
Lastly, to all of those who supported me during my time with Extreme 4WD and later at 4WD Action, thank you. Your support means a lot to me and I hope that you all really enjoy Off-Road Addiction when it hits the stands!
