Welcome to RUSH

 

The new digital magazine  for the driving enthusiast

1/5
1/3

Cutting to the chase, nobody here is a professional journalist or writer, we’re just a bunch of passionate Petrolheads asking you to ride shotgun as we try and string a few sentences together. We run this magazine as a loss leader, giving it away for free simply for the sheer joy driving, writing about & photographing cars gives us. 

It's no secret we are massively inspired by EVO magazine & spiritual predecessor Performance Car. A second major influence is the much-missed Modern Classics, and when that great title closed its pages we felt something was missing from the landscape. We felt a hybrid publication that focused on affordable icons with a serious analysis of driving dynamics and engineering could step into the void. In short, the goal is to have an exciting life surrounded by cars, creating the publication we want to read.

We would have dearly loved to have made this passion project in print, but the telephone numbers involved prohibit it. One day we hope to make it happen. On the bright side, digital has several great advantages besides cost - the first of which is we can keep all 'back issues' available. The second is any magazine that enthuses over swilling high octane should recognise the responsibility to be as carbon neutral as possible, and digital allows us to minimise our footprint. 
 

Before you get stuck in, allow us to make an appeal. We grow and thrive off word of mouth, so please tell all of your car buddies about us. And please get in touch, we take all feedback on board, both postive and constructive.

CRAIG TOONE

Founder, benign dictator

Handsome, charming, a gifted driver - but above all else...modest. Or maybe he's just responsible for writing these character assassinations. Grew up in the back of a Sapphire Cosworth and never looked back, wearing the racing line into the carpet of the family home with his matchbox cars. Can usually be found clipping apex's in the Forest of Bowland.

KOTTO WILLIAMS

JOHN BEE

Writer     
 

Opinionated, left field and always entertaining, Kotto marches to his own beat. It's probably because he's high off all the petrol fumes from daily driving a TVR Chimaera, or because he still suffers from PTSD when he sold his A80 Supra Twin-turbo right before prices went nuts.

Writer     
 

A committed track day addict who brakes late and wrestles with lift off oversteer, John ultimately prefers a slower pace on the road. He believes driving pleasure comes in many forms, whether its a wafting road trip in his XJ40, a marvel of engineering in his daily Audi A2, or a flat out lap in his Banzai Civic Type-R.

CRAIG TOONE

Winging it

Design experience? Zero, diddily squat. I've just learnt as I've gone, tinkering and tailoring RUSH over 1,000s of hours on Microsoft Powerpoint of all things, on a ropey old £300 laptop with a black hole in the screen.

 

The vision I had was for a clean and timeless look, concentrating on larger, centrefold style images.

Gun for hire
 

Photographer, designer and web developer for rush?

 

Yep, he has a degree in design (somehow) and consequently spends most of his time staring at Adobe software and its eye watering price tag per month.
