It takes a vil­lage

Motor Trend - - 2018 Best Driver’s Car -

To bring Best Driver’s Car to life, more than 40 peo­ple—ed­i­tors, videog­ra­phers, pho­tog­ra­phers, so­cial me­dia mavens, pro­duc­tion as­sis­tants— piled into a hand­ful of seven-pas­sen­ger mini­vans and SUVS for crew trans­port. Then there’s the as­sorted box trucks and vans loaded with cam­eras and drones and sup­plies. It’s a mas­sive lo­gis­ti­cal ac­com­plish­ment, planned for months and car­ried out over two weeks.

There’s far more con­tent than what ap­pears in these pages. Check out Mo­tor Trendõs web­site, on-de­mand video site, and our so­cial me­dia plat­forms. We’ve also cre­ated an hour­long broad­cast for the Mo­tor Trend Net­work (née Ve­loc­ity), avail­able on most ca­ble net­works.

We couldn’t make BDC hap­pen with­out sup­port from the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol in se­cur­ing State Route 198, Mon­terey County in pro­vid­ing Weathertech Race­way La­guna Seca for the event, the tax­pay­ing cit­i­zens of Mon­terey, who helped sub­si­dize our time at the track, and the folks from Honda/acura who helped feed us. Spe­cial thanks go to Tim An­der­son, pres­i­dent of Ra­cepak, and his crack team of tech­ni­cians who helped take our hot lap data con­sump­tion to new lev­els of de­li­cious­ness and de­tail. AM
