Michael Allen earned his Ph.D. in Psychology in 1986. But the title Michael is most proud of is “Car Nut.” He has been an automotive enthusiast his entire life. After purchasing a Porsche Boxster he attended his first track day and was hooked. Through the years Michael found himself frustrated with the lack of non-competitive High Performance Drivers Education content in car magazines. In December of 2013, Michael and his wife Ziva decided there was a missing niche for like-minded driving enthusiasts and decided to take on the challenge of filling that gap. They launched Auto Track Monthly, an on line magazine that is your one-stop-click source for track day and high performance driving information.
During a go kart race Michael was forced to start at the back of the pack due to a technical issue. After the green flag fell he worked his way to the front only to have the race red flagged and have to start all over again. Following Desiré’s motto, “Never give up” Michael finished well after the restart.
After getting involved in track day driving the idea of a website magazine to help people doing what he and Ziva were doing came to mind. It was an empty niche and Auto Track Monthly was born.

With regards to track day events: Striving to be smooth and consistent. In slow, out fast. Slow hands. Turn the wheel as little as possible. Look far down the road.
