Outstanding

If you are looking to learn information on all grassroots motor sports from autoX to spec and endurance racing, this is the place to be. The host bill keeps things entertaining with some great guests that keep the conversation flowing while having a few laughs in between. Only downside is not enough episodes, but I’m sure that is in the works.

BillFischer ,

Great new podcast on grass roots racing and high performance driving.

We only wish there were more episodes.
