Consistently Excellent

Genuinely look forward to a new episode dropping. Chris Harris teases out the best from all his guests regardless of what area of the automotive world they come from and interviews with insight, humour and warmth. Even if I am not 100% familiar with the interviewee my interest is always held.

Best podcast interview by far

The interview with John Mcguiness was brilliant, John’s a straight , lovable rogue who hasn’t forgot his roots and is all the better for it. The interview was funny, serious and showed that beyond the relaxed exterior, John Mcguiness is a formidable racer. I was at a Trackday just recently and John came into our pitbox just as I went out, I was gutted that I didn’t meet him.
