“Have you ever wondered what it must be like to be part of the pit crew during a crucial Formula 1 tyre change? Have you dreamt of what it must be like to be allowed inside the F1 paddock or inside one of the ultra-high technology factories that produces Formula 1 cars?

If you have then you are not alone. Formula 1 is full of glamorous, high octane thrills and anyone who has a passion for speed will understandably want to get close to the action. The danger, noise, speed and competition are an adrenaline buzz which makes a Grand Prix Sunday afternoon compulsive viewing for Formula 1 fans. Imagining yourself on the grid and taking part in the action is all part of the lure that makes the sport so attractive.”

Magazines



RACE TECH was created in 1995 to monitor technology, investigate technical solutions and explain engineering applications when they appeared on a racing car.

This is a guiding principle that hasn’t changed.


From the publishers of RACE TECH magazine, Track Car Performance is a brand new international title, one that reflects the growing interest in tracks days, club motorsport and Time Attack.

Written and edited by RACE TECH’s Editor-in-Chief  William Kimberley with articles from former Track Driver Editors Mark Hales and Carl Owen,  it focuses on how to make your cars more competitive and what to look for when kitting them out. The magazine will appeal to everyone from the person who just wants to take their car to the track for a bit of fun to the high-end track car owner who all have the same mission in mind – and that is to go as fast as possible along a given piece of track. • Track Day Drivers • Club Racers • Professional Drivers • Online Racing Enthusiasts • Engineers • Motorsport Enthusiasts.

Everything from the hardware such as dampers and turbos, induction kits and tuned exhausts, tyres and brakes, to items like helmets, gloves and race suits will all be covered as will hints and advice on driving techniques. It will also contain everything you need to know to convert your road car into a race car, items like the roll cage and seat belts, extinguishers and trackside equipment such as video systems and lap timers and how to test your car on a rolling road.

Track Car Performance is therefore the one-stop publication for all those involved in this area of performance driving, from the drivers, to the suppliers, the track day operators and the equipment and service suppliers.


 

The only magazine that looks at today’s technology in yesterday’s cars, focusing focus on the challenges and opportunities of running historic racing cars in the modern era.

Historic Racing Technology from the publishers of Race Tech magazine has quickly carved out for itself a special following as it is the only engineering-led technology magazine that brings a unique perspective to the business of restoring, preparing and maintaining historic competition cars in the 21st century.

Where Historic Racing Technology differs from existing titles is a clear focus on the challenges and opportunities of running these cars in the modern era. Historic racing specialists are increasingly blending modern methods and traditional techniques so that it’s now possible to produce authentic parts with an unprecedented level of accuracy. In some cases this goes a step further, re-engineering aspects of the car to deliver improved safety or reliability … and sometimes performance.

Featuring in-depth technical articles from some of the industry’s most experienced journalists and engineers, Historic Racing Technology is dedicated to the classic motorsport scene across the globe. It takes a fresh new approach, looking at the future of historic motorsport as well as the past.
