    Past Gas #173: Why Red Bull’s Winning Streak Is No Accident

    Past Gas #173: Why Red Bull’s Winning Streak Is No Accident

    In 2004, Ford decided they were done with Formula One, and started looking for someone to buy the remnants of their failed team, Jaguar. Luckily, an energy drink company was eager to take the reins. That’s right - Red Bull had decided to launch an official Formula One racing team, and little did the world know that they were about to change racing forever. But how has a team that’s been around for less than 20 years become one of the most successful Formula One organizations in the world? Who were the personalities that made Red Bull what it is today? And how does all of this lead back to a toothpaste businessman with a wicked case of jetlag? Crack a fresh silo, because today on Past Gas, we’re talking about Red Bull Racing… before they were the powerhouse team we know today.

    Past Gas #172: Penske: How a Small Dealership Grew Into a Racing Empire

    Roger Penske Racing’s debut was going pretty well… until his team’s Corvette t-boned a slower competitor in the middle of the night session. But failure was not an option for Roger Penske, and nothing was going to spoil his first race as an owner. A perfectionist with a compulsive need to win, Roger instructed his team to grab two flashlights and some duct tape. This car was going to get back on the track… How did Roger Penske go from racing to running a team? Why did he walk away from driving at the height of his career? What is it that makes Penske one of the winningest team owners in racing history? Today on Past Gas, the story of The Captain himself, Roger Penske.

    Past Gas #169: The Japanese Car Video That Inspired a Generation

    Past Gas #169: The Japanese Car Video That Inspired a Generation

    Twenty years before the launch of YouTube, tuning shops partnered with tuner magazines and illegal street racers in Japan to produce one of the most legendary viral car videos in history. The video would go on to cement careers, create massive media franchises, and ultimately resulted in an entirely new motorsport. And it was all done with one of the most unlikely cars anyone could have imagined at the time - the Toyota AE86. Who is “The Drift King” Keiichi Tsuchiya? How did drifting go from legitimate track technique to illegal underground activity and back to legitimate motorsport? And how did a small series of VHS tapes go on to change the automotive world forever? This is Past Gas - on Keiichi Tsuchiya and Pluspy, the viral car video that inspired a generation.
