Track Guide: Road America

Road America, located in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, is a favorite of many drivers. It’s a long circuit, at four miles, with some fast straights, technical turns, and lots of elevation changes. If you’ve driven it, you’re familiar with the infamous “Kink” turn, and you know to keep an eye out for deer. Here, we will add helpful videos, data, and links as we come across them.

We’ve seen the new badge, and now we’ve gotten our first peak at the new engine for America’s sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette. The flagship engine of the so-called Generation 5 family of small-block V-8s, this LT1 retains its overhead-valve layout, but adds in plenty of new tech. But of course, we know you’d all rather just see the numbers rather than a bunch of technical jargon. Preliminary output is 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, with a sub-three-second run to 60 miles per hour, all while besting the 2013 Corvette’s 26-mile-per-gallon highway rating.

I Want To Go Racing: Getting Started

Racing is something that people tend to think is expensive or only for professionals. Well, truth be told, it’s not. For interested beginners, all that’s really needed is the entrance fee to your local motorsports venue in your pocket and your daily driver. You don’t need any kind of racing experience for many events and you don’t need a sports car (although having one can make events so much more fun).
