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

January 26, 2015 

“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.”

Track Q&A

"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!”  


Chin Corvette

"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."

Track Q&A

Palm Beach International Raceway & The Palm Beach Driving Club

“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."

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
