    Dev Clough is the Head Coach for Hooked On Driving. He was kind enough to sit down with us for an interview. Dev had some interesting things to say about coaching, how to get started and how to continue to learn and improve. He also had some useful insights on the current crop of performance cars suitable for track day driving and which car modifications to focus on. Read the article here:

    "A common scenario that enthusiasts have encountered over the years was that if you did attend some of these other track events, the leadership would engage in babysitting and you would get a lot of negative direction; or warning drivers about the consequences of bad behavior or threatening to throw you out of the event if you did something wrong. That early environment was rather like elementary school teachers talking to kids."

    After a holiday hiatus, we're back with some great reads for you. Check out our latest article, an interview with former Griot's Garage president and founder of CarsYeah.com, Mark Greene. "My father bought a 1947 MGTC when I was 5 years old. That is my trigger car. I remember riding on the platform that is behind the driver’s seat with my sister. No seatbelts and our heads were above mom and dad’s. The wind in our faces was fabulous. There was a bar across the back of the driver and passenger seats that my dad called the “Chicken Bar.” He would say, “If you are a chicken you’ll hold on. Otherwise put your hands in the air like you’re on a roller coaster!”

    Read our latest article:

    Road America: "A Park with a Couple of Racetracks Built into it."

    “Come for the experience and stay for the race,” says Mike Kertscher, Director of Business Services at Road America, located in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. According to Kertscher, the average person does not know how diverse Road America is. “You can bring your family and friends here. Even if they’re not into driving, they can still come here and have a great time. It’s a park with a couple of racetracks built into it – truly. That’s what it is.”

    Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles Discusses the 2015 Z06

    We asked Harlan what makes the new 2015 Z06 suitable for track days and he said:

    "Other than the obvious 650 hp and 650 lb. ft. of torque, we paid a lot of attention to aerodynamic down force to create a true production down force car. We also added larger brakes and tires and the Z07 option, which has carbon ceramic brakes and Cup 2 tires."

    David Dickinson, Author of the Old Car Nut Book Series

    "They tend to be the type of stories that get told in a shop over a beer or two or from behind the bumper of a car at a car show as people sit in a circle of old car guys in lawn chairs. So, there are stories that will make you laugh or maybe shed a tear or two."

    David Dickinson has worn many hats over the years. And of course all of those hats have had something to do with the automotive industry and cars, specifically classic cars. Currently Dickinson is in the process of publishing The Old Car Nut Book series. With the first two already published, Dickinson is hard at work compiling stories for the upcoming third book in the series. Take a look at our Q & A with Dickinson and learn more about the man behind the fascinating stories:

    Advanced Driver Tuning: “Fingers and Toes”
    by Greg Haas
    February 2015

    Greg Haas, owner of Advanced Driver Tuning, was one of our first contributors. He has submitted a new driving technique article, which we think you will find useful.

    "When you grasp the steering wheel, be conscious of your fingertips as the first contact and explore the minimal inputs required to change direction. Plant your heel on the floor to index your foot's position and actively use your toes first for braking and throttle."

    The Greene Mille
    by Mark Greene

    Recently you read our interview with David Dickinson, editor and publisher of The Old Car Nut Book series. David compiles story submissions from car enthusiasts just like us. We promised you an excerpt from David's upcoming book and are fortunate to have been granted permission to reprint a story written by Mark Greene, former Griot's Garage President and host of CARS YEAH.

    "Blake put his hand on my shoulder and said, ďDonít worry dad. Thatís not a rock chip. Thatís a memory mark. Every time you look at that youíll be reminded what a special day today was.Ē I about started crying right then and there. This was an eight year old teaching his old man the meaning of life. Itís the adventures, not the things that count. Iíll never forget that moment."

    Auto TrackDay Monthly interviewed National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park Track Operations Manager Matt Busby. "The Grand Full config is a mix of moderate elevation change, medium speed, technical, high speed, high load corners, and also has three separate sections that see sustained triple digit speeds. I find it to be very challenging but also very repeatable. It definitely rewards those who take the time to get into a rhythm. Most of all, tons of fun!"

    Read our newest interview:

    BMW Performance Driving Center Instructor Mike Renner

    "I see this guy’s running 30 events and he’s never put it off the track. He knows he can drive pretty quick so he must have car control, but the fine art of really being able to sense what the car is doing, what cause and effect are, how to correct when necessary, and being able to drive the car at or very near the limit with comfort – that’s car control."

    Data Guru Matt Romanowski of TrailBrake.net Talks to Auto TrackDay Monthly

    "Having a great predictive time displayed in the car has really helped with knowing, while still on the track, which line or technique is better. There is no more guessing or going by what “feels” faster. With data, you know what is faster."
