About The Track Ahead
The Track Ahead focuses on producing automotive content in the form of articles, reviews, and maintenance DIY tutorials. I started this site back in 2016 as a way to share my passion for maintaining and detailing cars.
I’d describe The Track Ahead as an unassuming take on the relationship between vehicle and owner. It’s not about what kind of car you have or how fast it goes. To me, what matters is how you take care of your vehicle and the experiences you go through with this driving machine.
After a few failed attempts over the years, I finally got The Track Ahead up-and-running. One thing that I realize is that if you don’t have a love for what you do, you’ll be more likely to give up especially when things get tough. That’s why I’ve managed to continue working on this site day-after-day for many years, without any plans to stop.
I do have a day job and a family, as well as other obligations, so you won’t see daily posts from me. But, I will always post weekly or bi-weekly with new content.

About Scott Lam
I’ve been into cars ever since I got my driver’s license. Having my very own car was my ticket to freedom. No longer was I confined to the boundaries limited by how far I could walk or how far I could bike. Driving a car has always meant a lot to me in this way, and it wasn’t until later that I found that I truly found passion in taking care of my car as well.
I got more into working on cars with the second car I owned where I bought a non-running Mazda MX-6 and slowly tinkered with it day in, day out over several years. Since then, I’ve spent a lot of time tinkering with cars and got into detailing as well.
I have a particular fondness for 90’s and 2000’s cars, especially performance vehicles of this era. Growing up during this time period, I was engrossed in the amazing variety of stunning vehicles made during this time. So I’m always on the lookout for the next project car from this era since they’re usually in need of TLC being that they are now 20+ years old.
These days, I have a family and a day job, so it’s hard to find the time to maintain this passion but I still find time to do it. Because this has always been a passion of mine, I’ve found ways to pursue it without it affecting my life at home. I get my best work in at 4 or 5 in the morning with a cup of coffee in my hand!
