Caravan magazine: sold by IPC to Warners

"The Caravan team has continued to do a superb job during the strategic review process, for which I would personally like to thank them. I wish them all the very best for the future."

The publisher is currently finalising a deal to sell magazines World Soccer, Racecar Engineering and Classic Boat to Chelsea Magazines following weeks of negotiations.
