    Palatov Motorsport: Cars Designed for Trackday Drivers

    "What I wanted to do was create new solutions, break away from the tried and true. In racing there are very few opportunities to do that. Also, racing requires huge budgets relative to simply doing trackdays. But most importantly, I’m a trackday driver and not a racer. I wanted to design cars that I myself would want to own and drive."

    New Jersey Motorsports Park

    "Nothing beats repetition and seat time. This is not a sport that requires “book learning” skills. This sport requires hours behind the wheel until your awareness becomes acute. Nobody stops learning in this sport.”

    We interviewed COO and General Manager, Brad Scott, and Chief Instructor Pete Tremper of New Jersey Motorsports Park. Click here to read the article:

    Henry Gilbert: Race Team, Schools and Track Days

    "Universal Pictures hired me in 2001 to be the driving instructor for the cast of 2 Fast 2 Furious which was filmed in Miami and that is when I opened up my driving school - Sports Car Driving Experience. I got to work with the entire cast and had a great time with all the actors, including the late Paul Walker."

    Read our latest article and do not miss that track video of Henry lapping the field at Sebring in a Corvette. It is some crazy capable driving.

    Auto TrackDay Monthly talks to Tadge Juechter, Chief Corvette Engineer, about solving overheating issues in the Z06.

    "In our testing of the new set up in the manual transmission, pro-level drivers can run a full tank of fuel in temperatures of up to 100 degrees, a substantial improvement over prior years."

    Greetings,

    We just published a new, original article. Mike Skeen and Johan Schwartz are presenting a series of track-walk webinars called CircuitStudies. Skeen is a veteran of many professional race series including IMSA Weathertech and NASCAR Trucks. Scwhartz is the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge Champion and a BMW Performance Center instructor.

    Skeen and Schwartz used Sebring's turn 17 to illustrate a typical CircuitStudies track walk:

    ď...you want to remember that this corner connects two lengthy straights and has a big bump in the center, so you want to compromise your mid-corner speed a bit in favor of high entry speed and a good exit....Focus on braking deep into the corner, minimize the coast on the way to the bridge, use the little dot on the bridge as a reference point for your placement as the car rotates, and try to pick up the throttle early at the exit."

    Reading The Car Through Your Hands And Feet

    "If you ever find yourself pulsing on and off the brake pedal, work on making it one efficient motion: Make the first hit as hard as you can (without locking the tires) and smoothly taper off as you approach the turn-in."

    "The goal in every corner is to get maximum exit speed by giving the car one nice throttle application as early as the car will take it"
