"I’m not the fastest driver out there, but I’m good at communicating, good at breaking things down, tackling challenges from different angles, and—I hope—reading students for how much they can absorb in any given session or day."

“Once you work with an advanced person,” says Ray, “you see the issue, give feedback, coach them through it differently and then get out of the car and let them work on it.”

Where They Raced

 

“Just imagine going 90 miles an hour on dirt, three wide, trying to get to a corner.  That's reeealllly insane right down Santa Monica Boulevard.  When I think of it, it seems outside the realm of sanity."

Praise for Track Day Zone

"Michael and Ziva Allen found themselves so involved with track schools that they launched an online magazine for track junkies. Since I’ll be heading to Buttonwillow for a Central Cal Chapter school in a few weeks, I have been spending quite a bit of time at the site. Okay, I have been spending too much time on the site. I can’t help it!"

-Satch Carlson, Editor of Roundel Magazine

"I just took a look at your website, and I can see that I'll be back many times in the future. Looks great!"

-Ross Bentley, SpeedSecrets.com 

"Wow – Michael and Ziva…you humble me…the article is amazing…thanks so much for the effort – and for being 100% accurate in rendering our conversations…wow…"

-David Ray, Hooked on Driving

"Excellent!!   Outstanding!!  Awesome!!  What else can I say?  BTW, this is one of the most accurate, best written articles I have read in quite a while."

-Gene Felton, Champion Professional Racer

"Fun doing that interview and your site is a terrific resource!"

-Peter L. Krause, Driving Coach

"You don’t know how much I appreciate what you all are doing.  Every fatality I’ve ever worked has come back to haunt me in my dreams.  You are doing a great service, a public service educating people with your Keeping It On the Track articles.  If you save one life, everything you’ve done is worth it."  

-Lt. Tom Brown, Beat the Heat
