K3 launches Trackdaymag.com

Well, it's been 6 months in the making, but we've finally got our online magazine up and running. We're still in the process of uploading articles, but at this point the site is ready for viewers. The goal for this project is to create a place where racetrack beginners can find the info they need, while at the same time providing product testing and racetrack reviews that will interest the more experienced rider as well. There is also a forum attached to the magazine. Our hope is that this forum will become an online community for racetrack riders across the country.
Check us out at www.trackdaymag DOT com
Thanks!
K3 and the TrackdayMag.com staff

Give me a break...

For the record trackdaymag.com has no affiliation with any specific track day organization or race organization. It is information for ALL track riders

Give it a chance. There are plenty of credible, accomplished motorcycle riders/racers both inside and outside the fraternity that revolves around this website.

All I am asking is for people to keep an eye on the site. The tech articles, racing updates and articles, and flow of information through this website is going to be well worth keeping an eye on as the season comes full swing. It's worth it, and will not be biased in anyway towards any club or organization. There's a really cool article coming up on preparing a machine for AMA Superstock before the opening round Daytona 200.

Are you interested in what it takes to set up a machine for this? There will be a well organized article on it. Should be pretty cool.

There will aslo be an article written on 4 of us doing a WERA Endurance race at Grattan in July. It will be a full detail article on what is involved and what it takes to participate.

Ect Ect Ect....
