Road & Track
Road & Track (R&T) is an American automotive enthusiast magazine. It is owned by Hearst Magazines and published monthly. The editorial offices are located in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Road & Track focuses on both production and race cars. Former race car drivers have often contributed material, including Paul Frère and Formula One champion Phil Hill. Gordon Murray, the designer of the McLaren F1, is one of many contributing writers to be featured in the publication. Like many auto magazines, Road & Track used to publish an annual Ten Best list, but it has not done so in years.
The trademark stylized ampersand (*&*) is the title of a monthly article showcasing the latest developments in future cars and prototypes. Other monthly features include "Road Tests", "Drives" of the latest production cars, "Technology Insights" and "Tech Tidbits". Editor-in-Chief Matt DeLorenzo, Engineering Editor Dennis Simanaitis, International Editor Sam Mitani and popular Editor-at-Large Peter Egan all have monthly columns.
In 2004, Road & Track developed a new magazine concept titled Speed, which focuses on the aftermarket tuning trend. In the February 2006 issue, it was announced that Speed would be a web-based magazine, no longer being printed.
The ampersand in the title was created in 1955 by then Editor Terry Galanoy who replaced the word "and" in the magazine's name because the words Road and Track were graphically too long for newsstand-effective recognition. Subsequently, this design change has been recognized as one of the major branding and product recognition icons by various major design organizations.
