Hi!

What do you mean by size? Size of the company (employees, revenues,
etc) or the website? Anyway if these are privately owned sites they
will most probably not disclose any information on how big their
company is.

Thanks!

Plus.

Would it be ok if the summary came from the profile page of the company website?

Thanks again!

size i woudl like defined by sales volume. HOwever as you point most
of these will be private and so this will be difficult info to come
by. if you can just guestimate an order based on qulaity of site,
advertsiing, number of times you see them on your web travels etc etc,
 that will be fine. To get you started Grand Prix Legends is number 1
and sells about 4m per annum at present.

info from their about page will suffice for the narrative. 

any market research or useful articles on this sector you come across
woudl also be appreciated.

Hi again!

It is very hard to get a good objective viewpoint by just viewing the
sites. I think a more knowledgeable F1 fan will be better fit to
answer this one.

Thanks again.
