Ingrid Steffensen’s book Fast Girl, although about track days, getting to track days, being at tracks, eating at tracks....well basically living the track day world, is really also about life. Check out our latest article - our review of Fast Girl, Ingrid Steffensen's account of her personal journey from college professor to track warrior. Ingrid is a track day driver, instructor for the BMW CCA and a contributor to Ross Bentley’s Speed Secrets Weekly.

How would you like to own an F-150 or SVT Raptor used in the Baseball Hall of Fame parade? Such greats as Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax and Cal Ripken, Jr. rode in the backs of 25 F-150s supplied by the Ford Motor Company. They happen to make good tow vehicles too. Read our latest article:

Ross Bentley has been very generous with his time and support. He has participated in an interview for two articles and is contributing to our series on driving techniques. Ross has been getting the word out about our magazine and our content and we wanted to get the word out about his upcoming webinar, Inner Speed Secrets. This is a new format for him and it is launching next week on the 14th. The deadline to register is on October 10, 2014, this Friday. We feel this will be a real opportunity for our readers to improve their driving skills and we urge you to sign up. We will be in on the call ourselves!

Read our article about Inner Speed Secrets at:

autotrackdaymonthly.com - TrackCar Tech

Here is what Ross has to say about the webinar:

"The most effective training I've ever done for performance and race drivers is my Inner Speed Secrets program. But previously, I've only delivered it in person which made it unavailable to many drivers. So now I'm doing a webinar version of it. Drivers know the mental game is critical, and yet they rarely have an opportunity to develop that part of their driving performance. Now they do. I'll be doing an Inner Speed Secrets webinar spread over 4 evenings, October 14, 15, 21 and 22, from 8:30-10:00pm Eastern/5:30-7:00pm Pacific - a total of 6 hours of training. Registration is limited - and closes on October 10th. Go to Inner Speed Secrets right now to reserve your spot. It's available at the discounted price of $99 right now - if you miss it, you'll get left behind.”

Peter Krause is one of the preeminent driving coaches in the world of track days and motorsports. He was kind enough to allow us to reprint his turn-by-turn analysis of his home track, Virginia International Raceway.

An Interview with Watkins Glen International Track President Michael Printup.

"It’s going to cost anywhere from $9 to $15 million to repave the racetrack and we’re doing our due diligence now. The engineers are looking at it and we hope the Board will approve it."

Our latest article:

Palm Beach International Raceway & The Palm Beach Driving Club

We met with Aidy Alonzo, V.P. of Marketing and Communications at Palm Beach International Raceway, and Jackie Rea, Assistant Manager of the Palm Beach Driver’s Club to talk about new developments at PBIR’s motorsports complex in South Florida.

“When Corvette launched the C7 last year, they brought about 40 C7s in every color. You looked around out there and it was like looking at Skittles. It was like a rainbow! It was beautiful. No one had seen that many C7s in one place at the same time."

Dev Clough is the Head Coach for Hooked On Driving. He was kind enough to sit down with us for an interview. Dev had some interesting things to say about coaching, how to get started and how to continue to learn and improve. He also had some useful insights on the current crop of performance cars suitable for track day driving and which car modifications to focus on. Read the article here:
