    Past Gas #164 - The History of the Baja 1000

    Past Gas #164 - The History of the Baja 1000

    The Baja 1000 is an arduous 1000-mile drive through the remote and desolate Baja Peninsula. For many, it wasn’t a question of when you finished, but if you’d finish at all. The route is treacherous, and so is the weather. Drivers face flash floods and fog. Scorching heat and freezing cold. Rocks and boulders and unpredictable herds of animals. And if one broke down or got injured… the journey might cost a driver their life. How did a publicity stunt organized by a Hollywood stuntman grow into such a prestigious race? What has kept drawing racers back to the Baja 1000 for the last 55 years? And what makes the Baja 1000 one of the most treacherous races in the world? Today on Past Gas, the story of the Baja 1000.

    Past Gas #163 - How the 924 & 944 Saved Porsche

    Past Gas #163 - How the 924 & 944 Saved Porsche

    Porsche has such panache that it’s easy to assume they’ve been a rock-solid luxury import since the beginning. They’re owned by Volkswagen, they have a stellar racing resume, and they’re one of the most respected brands by aficionados and casual drivers alike. But it wasn’t always that way. Porsche has been on the brink of bankruptcy not once, but three times, since they began production. How did they survive?! Today, on Past Gas – the story of how Porsche has gone from penthouse to outhouse and back again, while creating some incredible vehicles along the way.

    Past Gas #162 - The Hill Family Racing Dynasty

    Past Gas #162 - The Hill Family Racing Dynasty

    In the autumn of 1975, Graham Hill was in a new phase of his life. He had just retired from Formula One as a two-time World Champion, as well as the only driver in history to win the F1 championship, Indianapolis 500, and 24h of Le Mans. From cinematic near-death experiences to triumphant comebacks, Graham Hill was a living legend. But on a cold and foggy November evening in 1975, Graham’s heroic life came to a sudden and tragic end, leaving his family both broken and broke, with his only son Damon left to pick up the pieces. Would Damon achieve greatness like his father? Or would the pressure of being Graham Hill’s son prove to be too big of a burden? Today on Past Gas, the incredible careers of Graham and Damon Hill.

    Past Gas #161: Subaru Made War Planes?!

    It’s no secret that the global auto industry was turned on its head during World War II.

Today on Past Gas, we’re taking a look at some of the car companies that made a massive impact on World War II.

    Past Gas #160: Australia’s Favorite Race Car Driver Loved Crystals

    Past Gas #160: Australia’s Favorite Race Car Driver Loved Crystals

    Australian motorsport legend Peter Brock spent years driving for Holden, an Australian subsidiary of General Motors. But when he became a little too interested in New Age theory in the late 1980s, he not only destroyed his longtime business partnership with Australia’s largest automaker, but nearly killed his illustrious career in motorsports. How did Peter Brock, a true wrencher, come to embrace the New Age? Why did this racing legend, who had spent a lifetime gaining the trust and loyalty of an Australian autosports powerhouse, risk it all for a box of crystals? Who was to blame? Today on Past Gas - the true story of Peter Brock and his energy polarizer.
