Episode #277: Spicy San Marino

Okay, first and foremost, sincere apologies for the delays here. Been a busy time IRL and we’re still playing catchup. We’ve taken a week off from recording, so we’ll get back up to speed soon, promise. Here’s Episode 277 from Imola, featuring Hamilton’s comeback win, Verstappen’s title chances going pop, and Daniel Ricciardo sneaking another podium finish. Oh and Valentino catching COVID. Whoops. Full setlist below:

HOT TALKING POINTS
This race was almost a dud, save for the meltdown at the end. Let’s just discuss Mercedes’ run of SEVEN IN A ROW instead
GEOOOOOOOOORGE! AAAAAALLLLLLEXXXX!
Kvyat puts in his best drive of the season and it doesn’t matter for 2021
Also, Kevin Magnussen had a gearbox that was so rough that he described every upshift as “like being kicked in the head repeatedly”

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT EARLIER
MOTOGP: The Valencia Double is this weekend, but Valentino Rossi ain’t in it because he still tested positive for COVID-19. Instead of Jorge Lorenzo, WSBK’s Garrett Gerloff gets the call! 🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅
Also damn, Yamaha really did get 50 points docked because their cylinders were “built different”
FORMULA 1: Saudi Arabia is getting a GP, in November, a Night Race in Jeddah no less. I’m sure this will be discussed in a nuanced and balanced manner.
INDYCAR: Alex Palou is now at Chip Ganassi Racing, which is genius on paper
FORMULA E: Cam’s boy Rene Rast is officially back with Audi, rookie Jake Dennis is driving for BMW Andretti, Jerome d’Ambrosio is now deputy team principal at Venturi
NASCAR: The playoff format stinks. That’s our show. Places you can find us, one more time!

Derek Bell | Driving for Ferrari

Derek Bell shares his vivid memories of his time at Ferrari, which began when he caught the eye of Enzo Ferrari as a young F2 driver in 1968 and soon found himself touring Maranello and having lunch with the Commendatore.

But in a case of being in the right place at the wrong time, Bell describes being the victim of a pared-back Ferrari race programme.

He turned to sports cars, where once more he was seen by Enzo, in a privately-entered Ferrari 512. Another call from Maranello saw him line up for his first Le Mans race in 1970. And the rest is glorious history.

Ep.169 – June, 2020, Pt.5 (feat Texas Motor Speedway, Sebring Int’l Raceway)

With the country in lockdown in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, our hosts took a 15,000 mile road trip during the month of June, 2020, to see just what the effect was on race tracks across the country. This was all part of the first episode of Season Two “Dinner with Racers” on Amazon Prime. Here now are the less edited versions of some of those meetups. This episode focuses on corporate owned race tracks, namely Texas Motor Speedway’s Eddie Gossage, who manages one of the biggest oval facilities in the country for Speedway Motorsports, and John Story, who runs PR and marketing for Sebring International Raceway, a famed road course that is now part of NASCAR Holding’s ownership of IMSA.
