Our new office: open for business

We have a new riverside home and we’ll produce our 1000th issue this year – two great reasons to celebrate with our friends

Motor racing royalty turned out in force for Motor Sport’s 1000th issue celebration at our new riverside offices in Chelsea. Editor Damien Smith and marketing assistant Louisa Skipper greeted guests including Sir Stirling Moss and his wife Lady Susie Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart and Tony Brooks. Rowan Atkinson swung by, as did radio DJ Chris Evans, Christian Horner, Adrian Newey, David Richards and ITV’s much-loved Louise Goodman. Editor-at-large Simon Taylor chatted with selected guests about their memories of Motor Sport and how the magazine has evolved through the years, from road tests of tanks and boats, to historic motor racing and present-day Formula 1 coverage. Guests filled up on delicious canapés and sipped Veuve Clicquot champagne while enjoying fourth-floor views of the River Thames, before being whisked away in complimentary Lexus cars.
