Love it

I generally don't listen to a lot of podcasts but Andre and the crew are like listening to your friends in the pub chat about race cars. The commentary is thoughtful and progressive, and the rotating cast of people on the show is always a delight. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Feluub ,

Pretty ok

Audio quality is subpar but aside from that Motorsport101 is a mildly entertaining podcast
