BRG Multimedia is a long established publishing company. Authors and producers of BRG publications are experts in their subjects and the company has worked over many years with major car and motorcycle manufacturers in the areas of both print publishing and TV/DVD video productions.
BRG Multimedia is also the publisher of The Motorcycle Files series of e-books available via Amazon. These e-books are written by the world's best-known motorcycle journalist, Alan Cathcart, whose features are syndicated to magazines in over 30 countries around the world. Each title includes a full history of the machine plus technical information and a track test as well as evocative archive photographs and superb modern digital photography. After a successful international racing career, Alan enjoys the confidence of manufacturers, museum owners and collectors who have entrusted the world's rarest racing motorcycles to him for this series. No other publications in the field of classic motorcycling can offer such a depth of content.
BRG Multimedia was established in 1998 by Bruce Cox to handle continuing business interests during his retirement from a working lifetime in the motorcycling and automotive media. It is from his memories, interests and knowledge gained during that 50 year career that he is able to write and administer the blog that accompanies the BRG website.
He is also able to draw on his personal memories of road racing in Europe and the USA (including riding in the Isle of Man TT and setting records on the Bonneville Salt Flats) as well as competing in off-road events in California and Mexico. Added to these motorcycle activities were occasional car races and even a couple of seasons riding skeleton bobsleds on the famous Cresta Run in Switzerland.
After beginning his career in local newspaper journalism, Cox moved on to work for major motorcycle magazines in the UK before moving to California to establish his own newspaper, Motor Cycle Weekly in 1968. He was later joined in that venture by fellow UK motorcycle journalist, Gavin Trippe, and the pair next formed a separate company, Trippe, Cox Associates, with the aim of promoting major motorcycle racing events in California.
Throughout the 1970s the company was recognised as one of the top such companies in the USA, promoting races to both World and National Championship level.
For 14 years from 1970 the pair organized the United States 500cc Motocross Grand Prix as well as National and World Championship Formula 750 road races and dirt track events in the USA Grand National Championship series. They also created the famous Transatlantic Trophy series that ran in the UK from 1971 until 1986, sold the concept to UK racetrack owners and handled the team selection of the American squad for the entire history of the series.
After Motor Cycle Weekly was disposed of to another California publishing company, Cox moved back to the UK and continued in the media business by publishing Circuit magazine for Yamaha Motor Europe as well as performing extensive media consultancy duties for that company on a long term contract. These included the promotion of the famous Yamaha RD350 Pro-Am and Yamaha RD350 International Cup series in the UK and continental Europe from 1982 to 1989.
He also continued race promotion activities by creating the MCN/EBC Brakes Superstock class which from 1984 to 1989 was the most popular class of racing in the UK and introduced the concept of the Superbike class before that became a World Championship.
During the 1970s and ‘80s, all of his activities in race promotion had been televised at some point by national networks in the USA and UK - so for the final decade of the 20th century Cox became involved in TV and video production himself and independently produced over 100 documentary programmes on motorcycle and automotive subjects. These were aired on networks as far apart as Europe, the USA, Latin America and Asia.
Now retired he still enjoys working on projects of personal interest, including The Motorcycle Files series and other BRG publications.
