I Autocrossed My LeMons Race Car And That May Have Been A Terrible Idea

Even if you primarily do other forms of racing, autocross can be a great place to shake down a car. You get to toss the car around at its limit like a total hooligan in the company of other car geeks. If things go wrong, you're in good, knowledgeable company. Oh yes, things went wrong when I autocrossed my 944. » 1/05/15 3:38pm 1/05/15 3:38pm

Here’s What American Endurance Racing At Lime Rock Park Looks Like

American Endurance Racing is the new kid on the block for low-buck motorsports. Based around simple rules and a "race what ya got" mentality, it's got lots of appeal to anyone who's ever raced 24 Hours of LeMons or Chumpcar.

Being A Car Girl (From A Car Girl)

I work at a place called the Classic Car Club Manhattan; a private club where members get the keys to some of the most iconic cars ever built. I was recruited young, just 19 years old. Initially I was only meant to be a temp, but Mike & Zac (owners/directors) decided to keep me around. I developed a passion for the… » 7/26/13 4:18pm 7/26/13 4:18pm

What I Learned From The Most Disappointing Race Weekend Ever

All racing is endurance racing for the people whose blood, sweat and grease go into building and prepping a race car. Therefore you can imagine the massive disappointment I felt when all that work seemed to go out the roll cage when my car was shunted just minutes into a race. The only bigger FAIL would come from not… » 6/27/13 10:08am 6/27/13 10:08am
