The New Generation
  By Wayde Alfarone
After watching the 24 hours of racing in Daytona it hit me. Many drivers are familiar, and some more familiar than others, at least to me. Watching the new breed of young drivers in the Rolex 24 hour race I was amazed at how seasoned they seemed!  A mix of experienced older drivers and what appeared to be old souls handling themselves with agility and speed, most within seconds of one another.
Against All Odds - 1970 24 Hours of Daytona
  by Stephen Cox
The hands on both stopwatches were still in place after the final practice laps at Daytona International Speedway. Unexpectedly low temperatures had turned their stainless steel casings ice cold, but Jeri Gottlob had no gloves. She wouldn't have worn them anyway over her freshly painted red fingernails. Twenty-two years old, single and pretty, Jeri and her identical twin sister, Janet, had been recruited to keep timing and scoring statistics for their brother's racing team at the 24 Hours of Daytona. Both had taken time off from their jobs as TWA airline stewardesses to be at the race.

Audi achieves pioneering feat with e-tron quattro
  4-wheel drive hybrid
Audi has set another trend in motorsport. After the brand revolutionized rally racing with quattro four-wheel drive in the nineteen-eighties and significantly shaped touring car racing with this system in the nineties, four-wheel drive has been making its way into LMP1 sports prototypes as well. The Audi R18 e-tron quattro now aims to extend ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ with a system featuring an all-new development.
Can Road Racers Again Dominate USA Motorsports?
  by Stephen Cox
Auto racing in the United States is a mess. NASCAR has peaked. Their response to dwindling attendance has been new cars and fuel injection. In IndyCar, the barriers to entry eliminate all but the uber-wealthy from competition. Tony George was the only guy willing to take a risk and try to solve open wheel's problems. [Editor's Note: He had the wrong idea at the wrong time and destroyed the sport.] Now it's road racing's turn to try and recapture lost glory. And I wonder if they're the ones who will get it right
