“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.

"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.

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.”

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."
