Editor's Letter: Rachel Ingram tells us what we can expect from the sports special of Tempus Magazine on Monday
Take a look inside our sport special edition, complete with our festive gift guides, exclusive interviews, winter escapes and more
Welcome to the Sport edition of Tempus, our essential guide to the most exhilarating sporting experiences on the planet. Our cover star is Lucas di Grassi, the world champion of Formula E – the most exciting new racing championship to launch in the past decade. With electric motoring at its heart, FE is transforming the world of racing as we know it. But is it enough to take over from its petrol-fuelled competitor, Formula 1? You’ll have to read on to find out.
As it’s the start of winter season, we take to the slopes to discover the best the mountains have to offer. From high octane sports such as heli-skiing, to must-see winter escapes cherry-picked by members of the British Olympic alpine ski team, there’s plenty to explore. We’ve collaborated with some excellent people for this edition.
In Style, Bulgari’s jewellery creative director Lucia Silvestri gives us an exclusive insight into her magical world, while actor and Omega ambassador Eddie Redmayne talks us through his favourite timepieces. In Sport, former F1 driver Mark Blundell talks about life after the racetrack, and gives some expert advice on how to turn celebrity into business, while in Culture we speak with Britain’s top sports artist Ben Mosley.
As it’s almost Christmas, we present our ultimate gift guide, created with the man or woman who has everything in mind. If you’ve still got cash to blow after the big day, head to Smart Living to discover the most opulent ski chalets on the market, and how to decorate them. Then, whether you’re heading out or staying in this season, we’ve got something for you. From seasonal sips for festive parties at home to the best New Year’s Eve events in the world, we’ve got you covered.
Finally, to celebrate our winter edition and the launch of our website, we’re throwing an exclusive Christmas party at London's The Rumpus Room on 7 December – and you’re all invited. Head to our Events page here for tickets. If we don’t see you there, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
