The Friction Circle by Austin, Bentley, Carlson, Krause, Sneed & Steffensen  

March 2, 2015 

"A sign of brilliance is being able to take a complex subject and make it simple. And while driving the car on the edge of the friction circle is not easy, Donohue made the concept simple to understand."

The Greene Mille  

February 23, 2015 

"Blake put his hand on my shoulder and said, “Don’t worry dad. That’s not a rock chip. That’s a memory mark. Every time you look at that you’ll be reminded what a special day today was.” I about started crying right then and there. This was an eight year old teaching his old man the meaning of life. It’s the adventures, not the things that count.  I’ll never forget that moment."

Advanced Driver Tuning: “Fingers and Toes”  

February 16, 2015 

"When you grasp the steering wheel, be conscious of your fingertips as the first contact and explore the minimal inputs required to change direction.  Plant your heel on the floor to index your foot's position and actively use your toes first for braking and throttle."


Old Car Nut 1 360x242



David Dickinson, Author of The Old Car Nut Book 

February 9, 2015 

"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."

Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles Discusses 2015 Z06

February 2, 2015 

"Our objectives were to create the most track capable Corvette ever while addressing drivers who do not want to trade off luxury sports car features to achieve that capability."





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.”

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."
