Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles Discusses the 2015 Z06

We asked Harlan what makes the new 2015 Z06 suitable for track days and he said:

"Other than the obvious 650 hp and 650 lb. ft. of torque, we paid a lot of attention to aerodynamic down force to create a true production down force car. We also added larger brakes and tires and the Z07 option, which has carbon ceramic brakes and Cup 2 tires."

David Dickinson, Author of the Old Car Nut Book Series

"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."

David Dickinson has worn many hats over the years. And of course all of those hats have had something to do with the automotive industry and cars, specifically classic cars. Currently Dickinson is in the process of publishing The Old Car Nut Book series. With the first two already published, Dickinson is hard at work compiling stories for the upcoming third book in the series. Take a look at our Q & A with Dickinson and learn more about the man behind the fascinating stories:

Advanced Driver Tuning: “Fingers and Toes”
by Greg Haas
February 2015

Greg Haas, owner of Advanced Driver Tuning, was one of our first contributors. He has submitted a new driving technique article, which we think you will find useful.

"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."

Read Greg's article here:

The Greene Mille
by Mark Greene

Recently you read our interview with David Dickinson, editor and publisher of The Old Car Nut Book series. David compiles story submissions from car enthusiasts just like us. We promised you an excerpt from David's upcoming book and are fortunate to have been granted permission to reprint a story written by Mark Greene, former Griot's Garage President and host of www.carsyeah.com.

"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."

Auto TrackDay Monthly interviewed National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park Track Operations Manager Matt Busby. "The Grand Full config is a mix of moderate elevation change, medium speed, technical, high speed, high load corners, and also has three separate sections that see sustained triple digit speeds. I find it to be very challenging but also very repeatable. It definitely rewards those who take the time to get into a rhythm. Most of all, tons of fun!"
