Track days are also often held in the guise of racing schools where the emphasis is on nurturing the finer skills of machine control and race craft, often under the tutelage of experienced former racers. Whatever the interpretation, primarily track days are all about having fun, whether motorbike or car, the emphasis is on enjoyment in a controlled and suitable environment.
As the performance of vehicles (especially in relation to motorcycles) increases, the track day can prove an invaluable means of improving the skills necessary to properly control these machines at or nearing their full potential in relative safety. It is a common feedback from track day enthusiasts that it helps them define the massive distinction between road and track riding/driving styles and as a result, through improved skill levels and attitudes, can have a positive effect on their road safety.
► Mercedes Future Truck 2025 (Autonomous Driving Demo)
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 constitutes a revolution in
efficiency, safety and networking, a revolution for road traffic and its
infrastructure, for professional driving and for the road transport sector.
This is not a new truck, but rather the key element in the interconnected
transport system of the future. It is being developed as part of the
"Shaping Future Transportation" initiative by Daimler Trucks to conserve
resources and reduce emissions of all kinds. Other aims are to ensure the
highest possible level of traffic safety and to Boost networking with intelligent data
management considerably for tailor-made vehicle and service solutions.
The prototype demonstrated the exciting capabilities of the
Future Truck 2025 back in the summer at speeds of up to 80 km/h in
realistic traffic situations on a section of the A14 motorway in Magdeburg,
Germany. Now the thrilling exterior and interior of that same vehicle are
One of the most interesting questions on the subject of autonomous driving
is the time horizon envisaged for its realisation. In purely technical
terms, turning it into reality on the roads is already feasible within
around five years. In terms of passenger car development cycles, a possible
start is envisaged in 2020. Owing to the more complex factors for heavy
commercial vehicles, the time horizon for such vehicles will, however, be
rather longer – realistically implementation is possible within ten
years, also in view of the legal considerations that still remain to be
The introduction of autonomous driving will not happen digitally from one
day to the next, as development is progressing in a gradual manner:
evolutionary stages are necessary to revolutionise goods haulage on the
roads. In the coming years, new and improved assistance systems will
continue to pave the clearly set-out way to autonomous driving.

new truck; it is a key component of the transport system of the future. For
the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is sparing on resources, reduces
emissions of all types, ensures maximum road traffic safety and increases
the level of networking in road transport. Goods traffic in the future will

truck driving profession and the haulage industry as a whole.
Work continues to take the Future Truck 2025 towards market maturity -
series production on the horizon
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is far more than a remote vision. The
truck should be on our roads in ten years' time. Many of its technological
elements are already available and ready to use.
"This truck provides compelling answers to the challenges that our
customers will be facing in the future. Our aim therefore is to press
forward with readying this technology for the market and to bring it to
series-production standard," said Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler Board
Member for Trucks and Buses, at the presentation of the innovative vehicle
in Hanover. "What we are showing here today is how the transport of goods
on our roads will be running more efficient, safer and more connected in
ten years' time. I am convinced that this will open up a whole new business
perspective for Daimler Trucks ," added Bernhard.

The 2015 Mercedes C-Class has received a complete redesign that changes the
"baby-Benz" from class average to a class by-itself. As I discuss in the
video, much of the change for this generation is down to the 2014 Mercedes
CLA250 (http://youtu.be/vyYfK_ZNkqU) taking over the role of "the cheapest
Mercedes in America". By adding the CLA to the line-up, the base C-Class no
longer has to compete with the Audi A3, BMW 320i, Lexus CT, etc for entry
level sales. Thanks to this rework of the Mercedes price ladder, the C300
is able to boast the most interior refinement of any vehicle in the class,
more standard features and more power as well.
Redline Review: 2015 Mercedes-Benz C400
No longer the entry-level runt in the Mercedes-Benz family, the 2015
C-class has moved significantly upmarket in design, technology, driving
dynamics, and luxury. Looking and feeling like the flagship S-class, this
all-new C400 should give BMW and Audi drivers a run for their money. Those
of you who can swallow the high price of admission will be treated to one
phenomenal sport luxury sedan. Just be sure to spend some time with the
BMW Z3 M Coupe in track day.
The BMW M Coupe is a Shooting-brake styled high-performance automobile
produced by BMW. As of February 2009, two generations of the M Coupe have
been manufactured, one based on the E36/8 Z3 Coupe and the second off of
the E86 Z4 Coupe. Both generations have a "sister" Convertible/Roadster
model available. Though a second generation E89 Z4 has been released for
the 2009 model year, no official announcements have been made regarding the
third iteration of the BMW M Coupe/Roadster.

2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

BMW Z3 M Coupe facing Track day.
A track day is an organised event in which members of the public are
allowed to drive or ride around established motor racing circuits, or
alternatively (though far less common) on closed or disused airfields. Most
race tracks around the world now provide this facility, whereby any road
legal or track prepared vehicle, (car or motorcycle) can be used without
speed restriction (as if racing, though the practice of actual racing is
almost exclusively forbidden at these events) by members of the public.
Criteria for being eligible to participate is usually the holding of a
driving licence for the vehicle in question, and the payment of a fee.
