Bigger, Better, More Beautiful: The MotoMatters.com 2013 Motorcycle Racing Calendar
Back by popular demand, and bigger and better. The MotoMatters.com 2013 Motorcycle Racing Calendar is on the presses and getting ready for delivery. The highlight of the calendar is, as always, the fantastic photos taken by Scott Jones, and to give them the room they deserve, we have increased the size of the calendar by 10%. The larger size means the calendar will make an even more dynamic impact on your wall. If the calendar was great in previous years, it's absolutely fantastic in 2013.
The MotoMatters.com 2013 Motorcycle Racing Calendar has a double-page spread for each month, with one of Scott Jones' fantastic photos above a month grid containing birthdays for most of the leading riders in the MotoGP, World Superbike, Moto2, World Supersport and Moto3 classes. To help race fans plan their weekends, every MotoGP and World Superbike round is highlighted on the month grid for easy reference. The simple and clear layout of race weekends makes planning your race trip, viewing party or personal TV / MotoGP.com watching schedule a snap. And as ever, the center pages feature a double-page close up of the 2012 MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo.
This year's calendar is 10% larger than previous years (13" x 9.35", or 33cm x 23.8cm), and features a special finish to bring out the best of Scott Jones' pictures. The calendar is produced in a limited run, with no more to be produced once the calendar sells out. This year's calendar is priced at $27.95 US plus shipping and handling, though MotoMatters.com subscribers receive a massive discount of nearly 40% of the original price, and can order the calendar for just $15.95 plus shipping and handling. The discount is applied automatically if you order a calendar while logged in as a subscriber. In response to your suggestions from last year, we have managed to reduce the shipping costs of the calendar, making it much more affordable for both US and overseas customers.
The calendar is currently shipping, but if you need a token to give as a last-minute gift while you wait for the calendar to arrive by post, you can download our gift voucher to give instead.
Below you can see a sample double-page layout. US readers should note that the calendar grid has been laid out with the week starting on Monday (European style). This is an explicit choice; the purpose of the calendar is to allow our readers to see the racing at a glance, and as the races are nearly always run on Sunday, it is much easier to see when a race weekend is if the calendar starts on Monday, rather than on Sunday (US style). In response to requests from last year's calendar, shading has been added to Saturday and Sunday, to make it clear from a distance that the weekend is at the far right-hand side of the grid. The months and days are now shown in four languages, English, Spanish, Italian and French.
