Henry Gilbert:  Race Team, Schools and Track Days

 

"Universal Pictures hired me in 2001 to be the driving instructor for the cast of 2 Fast 2 Furious which was filmed in Miami and that is when I opened up my driving school - Sports Car Driving Experience.  I got to work with the entire cast and had a great time with all the actors, including the late Paul Walker.”

"Nothing beats repetition and seat time.  This is not a sport that requires “book learning” skills.  This sport requires hours behind the wheel until your awareness becomes acute.  Nobody stops learning in this sport.”

Palatov Motorsport:  Cars Designed for Trackday Drivers

 

"What I wanted to do was create new solutions, break away from the tried and true.  In racing there are very few opportunities to do that.  Also, racing requires huge budgets relative to simply doing trackdays.  But most importantly, I’m a trackday driver and not a racer.  I wanted to design cars that I myself would want to own and drive."

Data Guru Matt Romanowski of TrailBrake.net Talks to Auto TrackDay Monthly

"I see this guy’s running 30 events and he’s never put it off the track.  He knows he can drive pretty quick so he must have car control, but the fine art of really being able to sense what the car is doing, what cause and effect are, how to correct when necessary, and being able to drive the car at or very near the limit with comfort – that’s car control."

Tadge Juechter, Corvette Chief Engineer, Talks About Solving the Z06 Overheating Problem 

 

"In our testing of the new set up in the manual transmission, pro-level drivers can run a full tank of fuel in temperatures of up to 100 degrees, a substantial improvement over prior years....The automatic transmission car can be driven on the track and is improved for 2017.  But, because we need the lay-down cooler for trans lube cooling, the automatic’s performance is not improved as much as cars with the manual trans"

Praise for Auto TrackDay Monthly

"Michael and Ziva Allen found themselves so involved with track schools that they launched an online magazine for track junkies. Since I’ll be heading to Buttonwillow for a Central Cal Chapter school in a few weeks, I have been spending quite a bit of time at the site. Okay, I have been spending too much time on the site. I can’t help it!"

-Satch Carlson, Editor of Roundel Magazine

 

"I just took a look at your website, and I can see that I'll be back many times in the future. Looks great!"

-Ross Bentley, SpeedSecrets.com 

 

"Wow – Michael and Ziva…you humble me…the article is amazing…thanks so much for the effort – and for being 100% accurate in rendering our conversations…wow…"

-David Ray, Hooked on Driving

 

"Excellent!!   Outstanding!!  Awesome!!  What else can I say?  BTW, this is one of the most accurate, best written articles I have read in quite a while."

-Gene Felton, Champion Professional Racer
