Description

We’ve learned that the best conversations in the world of motorsport happen over dinner (and an occasional alcoholic beverage), so we’ve tricked some of the most interesting characters in the sport to sit down with us and share their tales. Some are funny, some are enlightening, some never discuss racing at all… oh well. Join hosts Ryan Eversley (factory racing driver for Acura) and Sean Heckman (proud corgi owner) as they literally drive across the country for you, the listener, so please try and not write too much hate in the comments section. This whole thing was made possible by Continental Tire, as well as Acura who haven’t objected (yet) to the mileage on Ryan’s MDX.

Funny, informative, refreshing

A very cool podcast! If you are into sportswear racing and want to get a little more behind the curtain of it’s current players this is a good one. Funny, enlightening and surprising. Good questions you would never hear on Fox Sports or MRN.

Candid, Informative, and Funny

Road Racing in the US is like a traveling circus. All the players on the teams and media know and respect each other. The great thing is that they are for the most part very engaging with fans, allowing them to feel part of the spectacle. Drivers sign autographs for everyone at every race. The paddock is open for viewing and crew members regularly chat with vistors as they go about prepping the cars. Sportscar racers are also quite open on social media answering questions and giving a background view of the glamorous (coach-class flights, and mid-range hotels) life of being a racer.

This series of podcasts goes much farther, sitting down and talking with a wide variety of participants in the racing game. From drivers, to engineers and promiment media members, Ryan and Sean visit 27 people and interview them in casual settings on their home turf. The sujects are relaxed and get very candid. It's like meeting up with a favorite driver at a bar and letting him or her talk. They don't hold back on their opinions, though all them truly love the game which requires so much sacrifice of personal time.

In particular, the Level 5 bonus feature is a treat. Level 5 was funded by a rather creative sub-prime loan company and cost was literally no object. Jeff Braun details a project for a D-Sport Racer (a very low level and very amateur level racing series, targeting "a guy his wife and buddy with a garage") where the efforts and sums spent are hilarious punchlines totally out of proportion to stakes of the race.

Behind the paddock look at racing

Ryan Eversley and Sean Heckman offer a candid look at racing. The interviews are relaxed and personal. You will hear stories that you might be familiar with, but most stories heard here are experiences that are shared; you would never have heard before.
I look forward to the next episode to be released.
