OH MY GOD, JAMES HINCHCLIFFE! Let’s be real here, his Pole Position will go down as the feel good story of the year for Motorsport, a year on from his near-fatal accident. We talk at length about this unreal comeback, and Indy 500 qualifying in general, including Josef Newgarden on the front row, Andretti’s return to from, as well as Penske and Ganassi’s struggles – Oh and Graham Rahal’s family is being salty again.
There’s also a really powerful segment regarding Sage Karam’s troubles since Justin Wilson’s tragic accident last August, after a piece by Brant James made it into USA Today. I highly recommend you give it a listen: http://sports.usatoday.com/2016/05/23/indycar-sage-karam-indianapolis-500-trauma-justin-wilson-death/
We talk about MotoGP’s Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, as Jorge Lorenzo stole a W under Marc Marquez’s nose, Rossi suffers a blowout, we talk the “Quick Restart” shambles in Moto2 and talk about one of the greatest Moto3 races ever as Brad Binder wins his 3rd on the bounce!
We also talk about Renault’s war over engine upgrades, Rio Haryanto’s sponsor struggles, and Le Mans’ future plans. Could there be a French GP again? Woof. All that and more on the latest #Motorsport101
