Speed Secrets: The Big 2 Questions

In my opinion, the race engineer’s primary job is to get the car to do exactly what the driver wants it to do. Some good engineers disagree with me; they only focus on the simulations and what the fastest set up is from a theory standpoint, then expect the driver to get the most from it. I figure if the car is to the driver’s liking, he can show me what he has… he has no excuses.

Race Video Camera Comparison Review: Part 1 – The Problem With GoPro

Lots of racers use video cameras to capture action at the track. Some of this is for fun, because it is enjoyable to review an exciting day’s activity. Some video is for sharing, because if you make an epic start or pass, you want your buddies to see it. Some of this use of video is to gather evidence; if you protest or someone protests against you, you’d like to have an objective record of what happened. And our favorite reason for racing videos is learning, because sometimes you or another driver can see what went wrong or what went right and you can do better next time. So, video is good. Not only that, it is relatively cheap and has the appearance of being easy.

Video: Modded RX-7 Spits Flames At The Dragon

Ask the Winding Road staff what their favorite places in the world are, and it’s only a matter of time before someone mentions The Tail Of The Dragon. Officially called US Route 129 or Deals Gap, the Dragon is a viciously winding ribbon of tarmac, made up of 318 curves spread across 11 miles. That’s about 29 curves for every mile of road. Making things more difficult are the precipitous drop-offs and trees that sandwich the road. This is not a route for the faint of heart.
