Who are High Power Media?

Established in 2006 to publish the highly technical Race Engine Technology magazine, High Power Media was formed by specialist publisher, Simon Moss and renowned motorsport editor, Ian Bamsey.

Since 2006 we have also launched 6 annual Race Technology Reports, F1 Race Technology, 24 Hour Race Technology, Cup Race Technology, Drag Race Technology, Rally Race Technology & Alternative Race Technology, along with two free-for-life online technical resources, RET-Monitor and F1-Monitor.

In 2014 we launched a magazine for the fast-evolving world of unmanned vehicles and systems. Quarterly in 2015, Unmanned Systems Technology magazine looks at the engineering behind the market-leading unmanned systems being built around the globe.

We continue to strive for excellence in everything we publish from the extremely technical, detailed content to the best magazine print and paper quality.

What is Race Engine Technology?
Established in 2003 and published eight times a year, Race Engine Technology is a unique, high quality review of contemporary racing powertrain technology. It is widely read by design and development engineers and others involved professionally in this worldwide industry and just as avidly by those interested in a subject that has a huge ‘enthusiast’ following. It reaches the majority of all competition engine builders right across the globe – the heart of its readership.

What are the Race Technology Reports?

Launched in Spring 2007 and published annually, the High Power Media series of Race Technology Reports provide readers with a high quality, technical source of information that recognises that race engines do not live in isolation. Putting the powertrain into the whole-car context enables our team of industry experts to consider everything else beyond the engine, ranging from tyres and brakes, to transmission and aerodynamics. With the same attention paid to the quality and depth of the technical information provided as in our Race Engine Technology magazine, each Race Technology Report provides a unique review of leading classes of global motorsport.

What is RET-Monitor?

RET-Monitor has established itself as the largest online technical knowledge base covering the racing powertrain, with hundreds of articles of news and technological developments. On registering, subscribers select preferred component keywords from a list of 20, which represent the areas of most interest to them. The subscriber then receives eight personalised emails a year; each of these contains the relevant technical articles written by specialists, one in each of the keyword categories they selected. This revolutionary ‘personalised’ content delivery system allows subscribers to receive 100% relevant content and related advertiser marketing messages will target purely those subscribers that are 100% relevant to them.

What is F1-Monitor?

Using the same ground-breaking technological platform as RET-Monitor, F1-Monitor is published quarterly and can be tailored specifically to readers’ interests and to each advertiser's target audience, with a supporting website housing an archive of previously published articles. Looking at all areas of F1 car development, F1-Monitor takes its place in the digital world ably supported by the highly acclaimed F1 Race Technology annual report, first published back in 2007.

What is Unmanned Systems Technology?

Launched in 2014 Unmanned Systems Technology (UST) is a new quarterly print publication focusing entirely on the innovative engineering that’s successfully pushing boundaries on land, in the air, at sea and even through the universe. UST is unique – the first ever publication to focus entirely on providing independent coverage of the engineering at the heart of unmanned vehicles. It applies the same rigorous scientific approach to this brave new world as critically acclaimed Race Engine Technology magazine brings to the subject of racing powertrain technology.

Editorial Policy

At the core of our authoritative publications are in depth research insights that probe significant contemporary projects, with informed analysis that is backed by professor peer review and critique prior to publication. In addition, there is comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the technology and its innovations. There are also interviews with those central to its on-going evolution. The general approach is of clear, concise writing using plain English following in this respect the policy of New Scientist. All our content in print and online is designed to be accessible to all interested parties, not only to qualified engineers.
