Tracie Shippey

Tracie_AboutA seasoned professional, Tracie began her career working in the Office Equipment Industry with the market leader CANON. After three years as a successful product and sales trainer for the national sales force, her hunger and interest in sales resulted in a Business Development role, supporting a network of authorised dealers.
Her sound background in Corporate Business enabled a seamless leap into a lifelong passion for Motorcycles. Having worked in various commercial freelance roles including AUTOSPORT INTERNATIONAL and TWO WHEELS ONLY Magazine, her knowledge of the Motorcycle Industry is extensive with a huge network of established contacts across all areas of the industry.

Social Media is of particular interest to Tracie, building the right target audience for our clients and communicating key messages to drive an increase in business.
What ever the subject, Tracie has a particular flair for commercial and networking activities and is never far from creating new opportunities for her clients. She finds herself increasingly offering a solid consultancy service in sales strategy, enabling our clients to develop their businesses further and explore different markets.

A road bike rider for 15 years, Tracie started her motorcycle ownership with a Yamaha TZR250 and has since owned Honda NC30 & Hornets, Suzuki SV650′s and Ducati Multistrada 1100 – Riding experiences include wobbling around most of the UK tracks, riding to Spain and taking her honeymoon on a Victory Kingpin – riding from Vegas to San Fran. Her current bike of choice would be a Husqvarna TE125 ridden on the indoor arena at Wheeldon Off-Road Centre.

Tracie also worked as an Assistant Director for BNI in Sussex for a few years we guess this makes her a professional networker…

Mark Shippey

Mark moved into the world of publishing after a management role in the Motorcycle retail sector. The appointment to Classified Sales Manager for leading sportsbike magazine, SUPERBIKE in 2000 cemented his passion for this industry.

Mark was headhunted to become an original member of the editorial team that launched TWO WHEELS ONLY Magazine in April 2001, and has contributed to every issue since. His close-working relationship with manufacturers, distributors and importers enabled varied and interesting product based features. Mark also took responsibility for other core areas, including road testing Cruiser and Touring Bikes.

His distinctive writing style relays his passion for his subject. His vast writing experience spans features, press releases, proposals, sales material, brochures and web content across a wide range of trade and consumer titles. Our varied client base provides the opportunity for creative, interesting and investigative journalism.

Mark is a cruiser enthusiast and would choose an open faced crash helmet any day of the week. Bikes owned and ridden start from a Vespa as a teenager and span the A-Z of manufacturers. He’s got a soft spot for Victory Motorcycles and worked closely with Victory USA as a journalist (Hence the honeymoon!). Current steed is a beautifully restored 1967 Italian Lambretta Li150 Silver Special, but Mark can mostly be found Trail Riding in the leafy Devon lanes on a KTM 350 Freeride.

Mark also plays football and is former Club Captain for Ardingly FC, and after a brief spell at East Allington United FC has signed a longterm deal with Loddiswell VETS! So we guess this makes him a professional footballer…
