    Remains to be seen if it actually happens, but there it is.
    I guess I didn't really pay attention at that point since I knew I was out of the running.

    • How is the "voting" for the drivers that rep trackHQ actually going to happen?
      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 . . .

                this doesn't sound like a friendly attempt at an entertaining article as much as magazine guys getting bent out of shape and trying to make a point? Did you guys really get as spun up about the peanut gallery on Track HQ as your post suggests?

                You guys know, the following, and you know the public doesn't usually get this: The goal is to get reliable data for a comparison in someone else's equipment that have been prepped to questionable levels when the magazine gets there hands on them. And if its a multiple car test, the drivers get a few laps in any one car before they have to drive another one.

                  I might be a little slow, not only on track, but is Surfevo the magazine's editor? Dun dun dun
                  At least initially he was pretending to not be.

                          • I might have missed this too but does the magazine have to bring the pro drivers from the original article?

                            • now that we are getting off topic, "pro" is almost as inappropriately used of a term as "race" on car forums.

                              HPDE and time attack aren't a "race". And "pro's" that don't pay their bills and live off of an income made from racing or testing cars are not professionals. Not taking away from talented people here or those who have worked with magazine staffs. Just kind of a pet peeve of mine - kind of like saying "good" when you should use "well", or leaving dangling participles at the end of sentances...

                                But yeah, I agree with you on the "race" and "pro" definitions.
