View Full Version : New Track Day Schedule Site. Contributors Needed

10-10-2005, 06:58 PM
For the past few months, Iíve been working on an informational website for track day participants and enthusiasts. While the site is just about complete, what we are lacking is some good content on a variety of subjects. If you look over the site at www.opentrackaction.com (http://www.opentrackaction.com), you will see that the site is designed as sort of a ďone stop shopĒ for schedules, information and tips for enthusiasts. Itís these sections where we need some material, so if you would like to contribute, all submissions would be greatly appreciated. The following sections need some content:<o =""></o>

<o =""></o>
Event Reviews<o =""></o>

If youíve attended an event and had a good, or bad, experience, we would like to hear about it. We need good, unbiased reviews, preferably with pictures, of events by various organizations in all parts of the country.<o =""></o>

<o =""></o>
Product Reviews<o =""></o>

If youíve purchased or used a product that impressed or disappointed you, we want to hear about it. We need reviews on safety equipment, parts and accessories, cool tools or any other open track related items that will increase your level of safety, improve your skills, or heighten your level of enjoyment on track, in the garage, or in the pits.<o =""></o>

<o =""></o>
Track Day Guides.<o =""></o>

In this section we need articles on a wide range of subjects like what to expect at your first track day event, On-track etiquette, understanding flags, proper use of safety equipment, etc. Virtually any subject that will enhance the on-track experience or improve safety would be appreciated. The skyís the limit here.<o =""></o>
<o =""></o>

Projects<o =""></o>

If you are ready to begin a project, from a simple one that takes just a few minutes through an intermediate weekend long project up to a long term full car project, document it in words and pictures and we will publish it. Share your experiences with others. If you have something already written, send it in too, even if itís already been published elsewhere.<o =""></o>
<o =""></o>

The Gallery<o =""></o>

If you have any pictures that would be interesting to the viewers, send them in and let us show them off.<o =""></o>
<o =""></o>

I do not consider my site a replacement for this site. I consider it a complementary site since the main focus is to be able to find a track day in your area. And your events are listed.<table style="border: 0pt none ; margin: 0pt; padding: 0pt;" padding="0px" margin="0px" id="linkpreviewtable" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" height="41" width="3"><tbody><tr style="background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 50%; -moz-background-clip: initial; -moz-background-origin: initial; -moz-background-inline-policy: initial;"><td style="border: 0pt none ; padding: 0pt;" background="chrome://linkpreview/content/lpc.png" height="20">

That's a very informative site. You may want to consider adding Gingerman Raceway in MI at www.gingermanraceway.com, Talladega Gran Prix in Alabama at www.tgprace.com, and Motorsport Ranch of Houston at www.msrhouston.com.

You can also go to the front page of our website and get all of our information for our club events there.

March 12-13, 2006 - Carolina Motorsports Park - SCMC on Track
May 20, 2006 - Talladega Gran Prix - SCMC on Track
September 23-24, 2006 - Gingerman Raceway - SCMC on Track

There will be other events posted up there as soon as we get them solidified, thanks.

Cool site, I mostly attend the TDE-DE events, unless a cool bunch gets first dibs on a new track ;). I know some instructors that have a site about frequently asked track questions, which they probably started becuase they got tired of answering the same questions over and over again in Mini and C5 forums: http://www.trackfaq.com/ .
