      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?).

      The deposed former Sheriff of trackHQ . . .

      2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
      1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
      2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - my last track day car (FOR SALE or not, depending on how I feel when I fall out of bed tomorrow morning)
      2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

        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!

            The MARS (Mothers against Racing in the Streets) article reminded me about DAM (Mothers against Dyslexia).

                  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.

                        NASA Speed News Is great, but it is all about racing. We focus on HPDE.
