Future’s Automotive portfolio reaches a broad audience of passionate motoring enthusiasts, through its seven auto brands and six auto events.

Every month, through our specialist motoring magazines, websites and interactive events, we engage with nearly 900,000 people whose lives are driven by a love of modified cars, classic cars, individual marques and motorbikes.

Our ability to maximise cross-portfolio opportunities where there are shared audiences and advertisers is one of Future’s fortes. The Future Auto Events Series continues to go from strength to strength. Each summer the series, in partnership with Adrian Flux Insurance Services, attracts motoring enthusiasts to its wide range of events and we saw over 73,000 fans attend last year.

Europe’s biggest Japanese car show, Japfest, celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2012 while the Classic Ford Show, the UK’s premier classic Ford event, turned ten the following year. Also in the series are the Performance Vauxhall Show and Japfest 2:The Evolution, our second event for Japanese car enthusiasts. Ford Fair, Europe’s biggest and best Ford festival, is now in its twenty-ninth year and takes place at the world famous Silverstone Circuit. The Future event season is rounded off by the UK’s biggest and best event for all performance and modified cars, TRAX: The Ultimate Performance Car Event.

Each product in the automotive portfolio is clearly defined and highly targeted, speaking to the most passionate and engaged audience in each sector.  Performance tuning is at the portfolio’s epicentre: we reach more enthusiast tuners than any other media group, and we continue to leverage this advantage to increase our share of advertising and drive further growth in digital. Future’s Auto portfolio has a strong social media presence, reaching over 1.3 million ardent fans on Facebook alone.

Fast Bikes is the leading brand in the sports bike sector with a combined print and digital ABC figure of 17,626 (ABC Feb 2014). Fast Bikes is the only motorcycle magazine to post a digital ABC; sales of the digital version have grown by nearly 10% year-on-year. Fast Car is the top-selling performance-tuning magazine on UK newsstands with an equally strong digital presence via fastcar.co.uk. Total Vauxhall continues as first choice for enthusiasts of the Griffin badge, while Fast Ford and Classic Ford are the best-selling titles for modern and older Fords respectively. Classics Monthly and Mini Magazine complete our trio of titles for classic motoring enthusiasts.
