More than two years ago we introduced the name ‘Journeys’ into the masthead, to acknowledge the changes and growth that had occurred both in our club publication and in the RACT itself – we’ve been Motor News Journeys since then. Now it’s time to move on again, this time simply as Jour neys, the magazine for members of the RACT. The name reflects the fact that the RACT is part of almost every Tasmanian’s journey in life, whether we’re motoring, travelling or insuring the things we value. But as well, our magazine has widened its scope. For example, in this issue there’s a report on how the RACT Community Fund is assisting Tasmanians around the state; travel stories from Japan, Romania and elsewhere; details on the new round of R ACT footy tipping and advice on flood insurance; a feature on MONA, the remarkable new Museum of Old and New Art; an article on the return to Tasmania of a classic yacht and a variety of other stories and reports. But what about motor news? Well, inside there’s infor mation and advice on safe motor ing and important road safety issues; reviews on five different new cars and an article on the green future of motor vehicles; a reminder on safe zip merging and a heads-up about fuel labelling; members’ views on line markings and a warning on the right way to recover a bogged 4WD; a pointer on ANCAP safety ratings for new cars and a range of readers’ letters Join us on our Journeys See page 22 for more details.
