Uniformes de la Grand National 2018

Graphic News

April 14, 2018 -- La 171ª edición de la Grand National, la carrera de obstáculos más larga, difícil e histórica del mundo, se realiza en el Hipódromo Aintree, en Liverpool, Inglaterra. Cerca de 600 millones de personas siguen la cobertura de la Grand National, en que corren 40 caballos, saltando 30 obstáculos a lo largo de cuatro millas y un cuarto.

The first official Grand Liverpool Steeplechase, in 1839, was won by the aptly named favourite Lottery, while Captain Becher ensured his immortality when he parted company with his horse at the now world famous Becher’s Brook.

Aintree legend Red Rum is the most successful Grand National horse, coming home first three times, in 1973, 1974, and 1977. Red Rum was trained by another of horse racing’s great characters, Ginger McCain, who went on to claim another victory in the race with Amberleigh House in 2004.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
