New-look 1stCar magazine available to order
The revamped 1stCar magazine for newly qualified young drivers is now available for RSOs to order.
The March issue contains a feature on the dangers of texting while driving, four pages on the electronic stability programme (which controls skidding) and a page in the riding section dedicated to safe (but ‘cool’) summer scooter-wear.
1stCar’s James Evans says: “We've focus grouped, brainstormed and burnt the midnight oil - now we think we have a winning formula for 2009!
“We're interviewing stand-up comic and newly qualified driver Ed Byrne (of Mock the Week fame) and offering tips on buying your first car, among tonnes of other useful news and features aimed at young drivers.”
Copies are available from 50p each – to order or for further information contact James Evans on 07800 822818.
