    I saw this posted by Rich in another thread. Great read for sure. I was excited to see some great info about BIR. I'm hoping to participate in one of their track days this summer.

    “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.

    "Looking at parameters like percentage full throttle over a lap, throttle speed, brake aggression and coast time are all some of the more advanced measures I use to help even experienced drivers break through plateaus that invariably affect us all."

    As promised, we've published part II of our interview with driving coach Peter Krause, which focuses on driving techniques. Click below to read the article.
