After a holiday hiatus, we're back with some great reads for you. Check out our latest article, an interview with former Griot's Garage president and founder of CarsYeah.com, Mark Greene. "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!”

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

 

“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.”

New Article:

 

Making the Leap from HPDE to Racing Part II: What goes into picking a car and a series

 

"I began following the development of the class about a year ago, watching their forum and Facebook page to see how things panned out. Any racing is a big investment, and it can be a gamble to test a new class. No one wants to race in a class with only a handful of cars."

 

We followed Chad Morehead as he navigated BMW CCA and NASA race schools in the leap from HPDE to club racing. What follows is a discussion of the thought process he went through in choosing a car and a series to race in.
