Check out today's coolest new cars alongside editors at Performance Car of the Year, Lightning Lap, and 10Best Awards.
Have you ever wanted to join car magazine editors to help test and judge some of the coolest new cars on the planet? Well, you might soon get the chance. Founder members of our Track Club will have ultra-exclusive opportunities to ride and judge alongside Road & Track and Car and Driver editors as we conduct our annual tests this year. Here’s what we have planned so far.
On September 15, Car and Driver will hold its coveted 10Best Awards. 10Best winners represent the smartest, most entertaining vehicles you can buy today. They’re picked annually after an exhaustive evaluation of the year’s new or significantly refreshed models, as well as last year’s defending 10Best. For two weeks, editors drive, measure, test, and scrutinize a long line-up of cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. Founders will connect with Car and Driver editors in an intimate virtual setting to explore the selection process and learn about the winners.
Then, just two weeks later is our annual Performance Car of the Year event, once again at Monticello Motor Club in upstate New York. Each fall, Road & Track gathers every new or revised performance car they can get their hands on, puts them on the track, and endeavors to find the one that provides the most hope for the enthusiast: a machine that offers everything you expect of a modern vehicle, yet still tugs at the heart. Founders will attend PCOTY track testing on September 27th with R&T editors at the track, then cast a vote for the Founders’ Choice category.
The next big event on the horizon is Car and Driver’s Lightning Lap, happening on October 20, 2022. Held annually at Virginia International Raceway, the team of editors put the hottest new cars through their paces, measuring lap times around the 4.1-mile Grand Course circuit. Founders will be invited to attend Lightning Lap testing to watch these incredible vehicles being pushed to their limits. They’ll also have the opportunity to join Car and Driver editors for lunch at the track paddock.
