    Default 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

    Ordinarily, as Sheriff of trackHQ, I give a pretty hard time to first time ever posters here trying to sell something. Since it seems like you are trying to give back to the track day community, I'm giving you a pass on this one. Please post a link here to your on-line mag, and consider becoming a sponsor here (hey Brent, good post, eh!, or did I spell his name wrong?).

    Thank you for the opportunity. We hope that the forum members will enjoy our articles and find the other resources useful. We started our magazine to fill what for us seemed like a gap. I suppose we are now writing the articles we would have liked to have read on track day focused topics. The web site can be found at:
    autotrackdaymonthly.com - Welcome to the Frontpage!

    Enjoy and thanks again!

    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:

    This article fits right in with the "Crash Footage at Streets of Willow" thread - especially the last example about the young track tiger.

    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.
