WELCOME TO TRUE GRIP
True Grip is the SIDCs colour magazine which is packed with the latest club news, members articles, event features, product reviews, reader's rides, technical advice & reports on all things Subaru - particularly the Impreza!
After reaching the final of the 2010 Digital Magazine Awards, the SIDC magazine True Grip has gone from strength-to-strength. An example being the last three issues (Feb/May/July) featuring genuine world exclusives as their cover articles - from the first look at Subaru's manufacturer-backed aftermarket tuning line Pro-R to the first published interview with Team JapSpeed's Steve 'Baggsy' Biagioni after the theft (and recovery!) of their British Drift Championship Subaru Impreza that was at the centre of a worldwide social media phenomenon.
In the year since its relaunch following the failure of the original printed format, readership has soared and each issue's preview receives in excess of 1,800 unique readers daily whilst the full issue (available to paying members of the SIDC) averages 500 daily readers over the three months between each issue. By comparison, the first two issues of the digital format averaged a similar level of readers over an entire quarter! The magazine's reach has also extended dramatically over the same period - having previously only been viewed within the UK, True Grip now has a large international following, particularly within North America - thanks in part to exposure on Subaru websites such as www.nasioc.com/.
