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.

Read our latest article:

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:

"A common scenario that enthusiasts have encountered over the years was that if you did attend some of these other track events, the leadership would engage in babysitting and you would get a lot of negative direction; or warning drivers about the consequences of bad behavior or threatening to throw you out of the event if you did something wrong. That early environment was rather like elementary school teachers talking to kids."

After a holiday hiatus, we're back with some great reads for you. Check out our latest article, an interview with former Griot's Garage president and founder of CarsYeah.com, Mark Greene. "My father bought a 1947 MGTC when I was 5 years old. That is my trigger car. I remember riding on the platform that is behind the driver’s seat with my sister. No seatbelts and our heads were above mom and dad’s. The wind in our faces was fabulous. There was a bar across the back of the driver and passenger seats that my dad called the “Chicken Bar.” He would say, “If you are a chicken you’ll hold on. Otherwise put your hands in the air like you’re on a roller coaster!”

Read our latest article:

Road America: "A Park with a Couple of Racetracks Built into it."

“Come for the experience and stay for the race,” says Mike Kertscher, Director of Business Services at Road America, located in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. According to Kertscher, the average person does not know how diverse Road America is. “You can bring your family and friends here. Even if they’re not into driving, they can still come here and have a great time. It’s a park with a couple of racetracks built into it – truly. That’s what it is.”

Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles Discusses the 2015 Z06

We asked Harlan what makes the new 2015 Z06 suitable for track days and he said:

"Other than the obvious 650 hp and 650 lb. ft. of torque, we paid a lot of attention to aerodynamic down force to create a true production down force car. We also added larger brakes and tires and the Z07 option, which has carbon ceramic brakes and Cup 2 tires."

David Dickinson, Author of the Old Car Nut Book Series

"They tend to be the type of stories that get told in a shop over a beer or two or from behind the bumper of a car at a car show as people sit in a circle of old car guys in lawn chairs. So, there are stories that will make you laugh or maybe shed a tear or two."

David Dickinson has worn many hats over the years. And of course all of those hats have had something to do with the automotive industry and cars, specifically classic cars. Currently Dickinson is in the process of publishing The Old Car Nut Book series. With the first two already published, Dickinson is hard at work compiling stories for the upcoming third book in the series. Take a look at our Q & A with Dickinson and learn more about the man behind the fascinating stories:
