on quitting

I USED TO CALL MYSELF A PESSIMIST. I guess maybe I thought it made me sound cool, or that being an optimist meant not acknowledging that often, things are, you know … unbelievably terrible. I may still pride myself on my extensive knowledge of things that are painful, depressing and immeasurably bad—and my knowledge of the exact ways in which they’re bad—but here I am. Bashing my head against this magazine, fiddling with my cars. My house. Here I am imagining that there will be a world better than this one for my baby girls. The evidence is overwhelming. On some level, I must believe in the possibility that it will get better, or at least that there’s nothing good in quitting. Yesterday, I stood on holy ground—in victory circle at The…

about the cover

We played a hunch, making the trek to Watkins Glen International hoping to see a little racing history, and our number came in. Well, actually, it was Mazda’s number that finally came in as the No. 55 Mazda DPi covered the field for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series win in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen on June 30. Driver Harry Tincknell took the checkered flag, thanks to late race pass of Acura Team Penske’s Juan Pablo Montoya. The win was the first for storied Team Joest in the WeatherTech series, and Autoweek contributor Steven Cole Smith was in the trenches for all the action. Find out what all the shouting was about, beginning on page 36.…

A little after 10:30 in the morning on Sunday, June 2, 2019, I sat in a chair behind one of many Penske transporters set up on Belle Isle. As a crew of several men and women prepared for race two of the Dual in Detroit, I waited to begin an interview with IMSA driver Hélio Castroneves. I was greeted by a well-dressed PR man, who asked me to give him a few moments to ensure Castroneves’ readiness before we met to talk about finishing on the podium the day before in the IMSA Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix. While I waited, a Penske employee walked by, wrapping cord. As he walked, I stared, transfixed. Never before had I seen such care taken to what many consider menial work. This employee carefully, methodically…

The following is an excerpt from “Slow Car Fast: The Millennial Mantra Changing Car Culture for Good,” an upcoming book on what it means to be a car guy in 2020, with a focus on the oft-misunderstood millennial. FOR THE LONGEST TIME, no one knew what to make of the BMW E30 M3. Sure, it was a pretty little car. With two doors, a wide stance and big curvy hips, the E30 M3 exuded quickness. Its wedgy front end boasted quintessential ’80s coke-addled charisma (or lack thereof). That was part of the fun. Besides, it was great to drive. Compared to the entry-level E30 3-Series, the M3 had a stiffer chassis, better suspension and more power from the its four-cylinder engine. They were great for racing on the cheap. And that’s what…

“NIKI LAUDA: 1949-2019,” COMPETITION PRESS, JOE SAWARD, JUNE 17 Nice send-off and tribute for Herr Lauda. During my dinner with Mario Andretti 20 years ago, he noted that it was he and Niki that convinced James Hunt to retire from racing due to his lifestyle issues. Autoweek continues to improve and beat the competition. You are being true to the roots of the publication. Thank you! —CHRIS HAMILTON, SEATTLE “A LIFE LIVED BRAVELY,” COMPETITION PRESS, JOE SAWARD, JUNE 17 The June 17 issue is one of the best in recent months. So many race reports made it a real Competition Press. Moreover, Joe Saward’s story on W Williams was extraordinary. What a human being! —DANIEL NEUKOM, SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA “TIME TO GET ON BOARD,” LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER, RORY CARROLL, JUNE 17 Interesting that you call Facebook and…
