New Online Magazine for Track Day Enthusiasts

My wife and I are both track day drivers and we have started a free online magazine catering exclusively to the track day driver enthusiast.

Check out just some of our original articles:

Track designer Alan Wilson is interviewed
A review of smart phone data and video logging apps and interview with the developer of Track Attack
An interview with the developer of RaceRender video editing software and the smart phone app, TrackAddictHD
An interview with Daniel McCoey who is a time trial driver and a track prep shop owner in Australia on track modifications
Reviews of race track facilities NCCAR in North Carolina and The FIRM in Gainesville
Two articles on efforts to reduce street racing by youths

and How To articles on our How To and Getting Started tabs

Please check the 13 modules on our home page. By clicking 'Read More" you can go right to the original material.

Thanks,
Michael and Ziva

Our first reader submission has been published in our magazine. Read about driving instructor Doug Quara's interesting and sometimes hilarious instructing experiences entitled Memoir of a High Performance Driver Education Instructor here:

"I really thought that in any lap we’d end up running out of room at the exit and do some agricultural activities. But luckily we never did. How many ways can you say “Get up near the wall on the right!! GET UP NEAR THE WALL ON THE RIGHT!!?!?!?”

Auto TrackDay Monthly's upcoming June issue is running a story on vintage racer and writer Burt Levy who says, “I went to see a vintage race to do a story for Auto Week about it and I just fell in love. I mean here were all the cars I grew up lusting after. And it’s not just the doing it. It’s the people and the liturgy if you will – you know of being on the inside where you know the people and you know the cars and you know the stories and the wild characters you run into at racing. Racing is full of some great people. It’s just so much more vivid than everyday life. When you’re on a race weekend, it’s like being on a mission. You know what you’re trying to accomplish. It’s very goal oriented. And then you go back to what I call the mindless slop of everyday life. And you can’t wait to get back to the track.” While you're waiting to read more about Burt Levy in June, if you haven't already, read some of our current articles on brake upgrades, track insurance, track cars, getting started and how-to’s.
