In the race to extend magazine brands: Car and Driver magazine is introducing the “Car and Driver Race Series — powered by Precision Racing.” This means you, too, can be a race car driver: According to the press release, “No racing experience will be required and anyone can participate with their own car in a nationwide program, with no cops, no tickets and no clubs to join.” Participants will be charged with three driving skill challenges. Winners of these competitions in each market will ultimately compete in a national two-day championship. Entry fee is $99. Complete series information will be available (someday, but not now) at www.caranddriverraceseries.com.
I’m afraid if I participated in this, I’d have to change the name of this weblog to WRECKSblog.com
