    Default Auto TrackDay Monthly Magazine Announcements

    Do you all remember the article we ran on track designer Alan Wilson back in March? Fascinating! Well, he's written a thriller about what might happen if hackers were able to compromise Formula 1 cars' telemetry during a race. Click below to read our review of Alan Wilson's novel Zapped and what Wilson himself has to say about this controversy. And if you haven't already, scroll down our homepage to read our prior interview with the great track designer. Just look for the yellow Porsche.

    We have Part II with Peter coming soon. Also, we are going to be doing a series of driving technique articles with input from a team of driver coaches including Ross Bentley, Peter Krause, Satch Carlson and others. Each of our ten contributors will weigh in on each topic. Right now they are working on threshold braking. We will publish that one soon. Thanks and enjoy!

    "The team had to re-think how to take advantage of the power by optimizing the axle ratio and transmission gearing. After looking at minimizing the number of shifts at some of our favorite tracks, the team selected a combination that would allow our customers to get out of the hole without breaking the tires loose and continue on down the track, taking full advantage of all 662HP."

    Read our interview with the Project Manager for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.

    Also, we have partnered with Track HQ and RacingJunk.com to bring you an enhanced track day oriented forum experience and access to track car classifieds. Finally, go to our downloads tab to get your how to manuals and track driver log.

    "Looking at parameters like percentage full throttle over a lap, throttle speed, brake aggression and coast time are all some of the more advanced measures I use to help even experienced drivers break through plateaus that invariably affect us all."

    As promised, we've published part II of our interview with driving coach Peter Krause, which focuses on driving techniques. Click below to read the article.

    Ingrid Steffensen’s book Fast Girl, although about track days, getting to track days, being at tracks, eating at tracks....well basically living the track day world, is really also about life. Check out our latest article - our review of Fast Girl, Ingrid Steffensen's account of her personal journey from college professor to track warrior.

    How would you like to own an F-150 or SVT Raptor used in the Baseball Hall of Fame parade? Such greats as Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax and Cal Ripken, Jr. rode in the backs of 25 F-150s supplied by the Ford Motor Company. They happen to make good tow vehicles too. Read our latest article:

    Ross Bentley has been very generous with his time and support. He has participated in an interview for two articles and is contributing to our series on driving techniques. Ross has been getting the word out about our magazine and our content and we wanted to get the word out about his upcoming webinar, Inner Speed Secrets. This is a new format for him and it is launching next week on the 14th. The deadline to register is on October 10, 2014, this Friday. We feel this will be a real opportunity for our readers to improve their driving skills and we urge you to sign up. We will be in on the call ourselves!

    Read our article about Inner Speed Secrets at:

    autotrackdaymonthly.com - TrackCar Tech

    Here is what Ross has to say about the webinar:

    "The most effective training I've ever done for performance and race drivers is my Inner Speed Secrets program. But previously, I've only delivered it in person which made it unavailable to many drivers. So now I'm doing a webinar version of it. Drivers know the mental game is critical, and yet they rarely have an opportunity to develop that part of their driving performance. Now they do. I'll be doing an Inner Speed Secrets webinar spread over 4 evenings, October 14, 15, 21 and 22, from 8:30-10:00pm Eastern/5:30-7:00pm Pacific - a total of 6 hours of training. Registration is limited - and closes on October 10th. Go to Inner Speed Secrets right now to reserve your spot. It's available at the discounted price of $99 right now - if you miss it, you'll get left behind.”

    An Interview with Watkins Glen International Track President Michael Printup.

    "It’s going to cost anywhere from $9 to $15 million to repave the racetrack and we’re doing our due diligence now. The engineers are looking at it and we hope the Board will approve it."

    Our latest article:

    Palm Beach International Raceway & The Palm Beach Driving Club

    We met with Aidy Alonzo, V.P. of Marketing and Communications at Palm Beach International Raceway, and Jackie Rea, Assistant Manager of the Palm Beach Driver’s Club to talk about new developments at PBIR’s motorsports complex in South Florida.

    “When Corvette launched the C7 last year, they brought about 40 C7s in every color. You looked around out there and it was like looking at Skittles. It was like a rainbow! It was beautiful. No one had seen that many C7s in one place at the same time."

    "At one stage I was one of 36 drivers in the world with a Formula One Superlicense! I have driven so many fantastic race cars – most drivers just dream of."

    In this issue, we review Driven by Desire: The Desiré Wilson Story, a book about one of the great race car drivers of a past generation, written by her husband Alan Wilson.
