Auto TrackDay Monthly is a free online magazine containing articles geared exclusively for the HPDE enthusiast. This is a new magazine written by very passionate track day driver journalists and we are trying to build our reader base. For our current issue, we had the opportunity to interview Alan Wilson, one of the world’s premier track designers. To give you an idea of the quality of the magazine’s content, I have attached below a link to Mr. Wilson’s article. We hope you enjoy! Thank you.

"I really thought that in any lap we’d end up running out of room at the exit and do some agricultural activities. But luckily we never did. How many ways can you say “Get up near the wall on the right!! GET UP NEAR THE WALL ON THE RIGHT!!?!?!?”

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.

“I’m not the fastest driver out there, but I’m good at communicating, good at breaking things down, tackling challenges from different angles, and—I hope—reading students for how much they can absorb in any given session or day.” Read our latest article about Ingrid Steffensen, track day coach and contributor to Ross Bentley’s Speed Secrets Weekly.

Do you all remember the article we ran on track designer Alan Wilson back in March? Fascinating! Well, he's written a thriller about what might happen if hackers were able to compromise Formula 1 cars' telemetry during a race. Click below to read our review of Alan Wilson's novel Zapped and what Wilson himself has to say about this controversy. And if you haven't already, scroll down our homepage to read our prior interview with the great track designer. Just look for the yellow Porsche.

"The team had to re-think how to take advantage of the power by optimizing the axle ratio and transmission gearing. After looking at minimizing the number of shifts at some of our favorite tracks, the team selected a combination that would allow our customers to get out of the hole without breaking the tires loose and continue on down the track, taking full advantage of all 662HP."

Read our interview with the Project Manager for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.

Also, we have partnered with Track HQ and RacingJunk.com to bring you an enhanced track day oriented forum experience and access to track car classifieds. Finally, go to our downloads tab to get your how to manuals and track driver log.
