How'd you do on those resolutions for 2011? Did you start that father-son project car? Make your daily driver trackworthy? Lap the NĂĽrburgring? Oh well. No matter; you've got a brand new, hopeful year to futz with. What's your automotive resolution for 2012?

We'd better make 2012 a good one, just in case the Mayans are right. In that vein, I'm going to the Isle of Man TT. I know that most resolutions tend toward self-improvement, but what could be more self-improving that going to the rawest, most life-affirming (and life-risking) motorsports event in the world? Anyone can do a few extra minutes on the treadmill, but getting to the Isle of Lucy (or wherever) for the famed Tourist Trophy race during a busy, vacation-deprived workyear will take some fortitude. And if not, there's always 2013. (Photo: Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
