And i don't even know how many years now. But as long as i've been going to the cup series i feel like it's been sold out So was very disappointed to to not be able to do that. Last season for Four our fans that do come out and Just fade and camp and and tailgate party and sit in the grandstands and you know to be able to have that coming back.

How Far Can a Plane Glide Without Engines?

"In nineteen eighty three a perfect storm of technical issues and unit conversion mistakes left an air canada boeing seven sixty seven without fuel. Some forty one thousand feet. That's twelve thousand. Five hundred meters over central canada before long. It lost power to both engines after descending rate of twenty five hundred feet. That's seven hundred sixty meters per minute. The pilots were able to glide their boeing all the way to save albeit bumpy landing on a race car track. The pilots were hailed heroes and the airplane was dubbed the gimli glider after the town where it landed essentially any plane can glide if the need arises and in situations where all the engines have failed. Pilots have to expect the plane to do some gliding. Without the thrust those engines are built to provide. The plane can't help but lose altitude but how far can a plane glide when it's not designed to be a glider aircrafts whose engines conch out at higher elevations can glide for longer periods of time. This is one of the reasons. Why shellenberger and skulls hudson river landing was so impressive. They had to glide their way to safety and a matter of minutes from a pretty low altitude. Everything happened very fast on. Us airways flight forty nine fifty one. The plane hit the birds within two minutes of taking off and just three minutes later. The plane was in the hudson river. Obviously planes come in all shapes and sizes. So if you're flying one it's important to know your vehicles. Best glide speed in a nutshell. This is the speed that will let your airplane travel the farthest distance while sacrificing the least amount of altitude. A related concept is the minimum sink speed or the pace of travel that will maximize how much time you can spend gliding depending on your situation. You may choose to prioritize time over distance or vice versa

"Week's project car of the week is a retired mo- par drag car and you should know by now how cool i think old school mo- par drag cars are so it's no surprise. Why pick this drag challenger for project. The week it was posted on the talking mo- parts facebook page on wednesday june second at three o'clock and there is a big mistake in the ad which we will discuss after here is the ad nineteen seventy dodge challenger race car twenty thousand dollars. Joseph used cars vintage pro stock. Hardy roller chassis. Steele roof and quarters would make a good twenty eight and a half tire class car or bracket or whatever you wanna race twenty thousand or best offer title status is missing okay folks so if you saw the car or looking at it right now listening to this. You'd see that the car is a nineteen seventy-one assuming that the grill retail i panel have never been changed and the ad lists it as a seventy that's annoying to me ad also states. The title is missing which also annoys me. But it's understandable considering the car's been out of commission likely since the seventies the fender tag is long gone unless these guys have it and they will include it with the sale but look the cars and old drag car and if it were to see the track again it would definitely need some upgrading and updating. But that's not exactly how i roll. I'd love to be able to drive this car on the road into shows and cruises so that's the direction i would take it. I would actually leave it. The nostalgic look. But i would obviously get it safe and able to be street driven. The exterior of this car needs to be preserved. Exactly how it is with. Its wild custom paint job in giant period. Correct looking offset hood scoop. It's really hard for me to explain how this car looked. So you really have to go to the talking about parts. facebook page. Go back to wednesday. June second at three o'clock and check this car out. But you know let's not forget to mention.

The Sound of Our Future Depends On Electric Vehicles

"The sound and volume of cars is definitely a bit of a controversial point as someone who lives in the city. I'm often annoyed by overly loud cars especially the ones that modify them to make them so loud that they set off all the car alarms on the block when they speed past my apartment usually while i'm recording this podcast. I do get that. The sound of the engine is a big deal for some car enthusiasts. Though i mean i know when someone mentioned to my dad that his motorcycle was a bit quiet. I found him drilling holes in the exhaust. The next day and i was taught when learning to drive manual that you should be able to tell when to shift gears based on the sound and feeling of the engine not just by looking at the tachometer and then there's of course. The safety element being able to hear an oncoming vehicle can be life saving for drivers and pedestrians alike and that is one of the bigger critiques of the mostly silent electric vehicles. Due to a lack of moving parts they tend to be ultra quiet but both out of a sense of preference and due to some regulated safety requirements. Most models are designed with a suite of sounds that can be adjusted in the car settings if you're ford. This means digitally produced engine noises on recordings from race cars electric guitars and power lines. And if you're tesla is a selection of half a dozen different fart sounds since apparently we can make electric vehicles. Sound like anything. L. hundred legarda rating in time says this presents an enormous opportunity for us to design. The soundscape of the future will garza painted in that macro and inspiring way. Most of the sound designers. He talked to were focused on branding figuring out a brands. Sound logo is a fascinating process.

"Drivers do percents of their charging. That's eight zero percent of their charging at home. There are over twenty two thousand charging stations on over sixty six thousand chargers across the united states and counting with more being installed every day. The new electric vehicles have a healthy amount of battery range. Some as much as three hundred fifty miles as i recall and the cars. Frankly are very very cool. I was at the dc. Auto show recently took a ride with a race car driver in an electric volvo sports car. That was way cool. There are electric and hybrid. Suv sedans sports cars et cetera. So what is holding it up. I'd like you to meet a woman who we hope can answer some of these questions kate. Sloan is the director of mobility at southern california edison.

Katie and thank you so much for joining us. Thank you john. I'm excited to be here. Oh you're welcome you're welcome so you focus on removing the barriers to electric vehicle adoption which assumes there's a big market for these vehicles but since most of us are not even be owners. What's your pitch to own one. That's a great question to start with. And i would say that. Electric vehicles are funded. Drive that is the number one reason that people should be thinking about purchasing them love to share a little story about my own personal experience and that is that my husband has always driven really large. Suv's and trucks his whole life and when we went car shopping a few years ago and we started looking at electric vehicles. I have to say that he was like probably the majority of folks saying that he was not very excited about purchasing an electric vehicle so much so that when we went to test drive one of the cars he refused to sit in the front seat and actually sat in the back with his arms folded

"We have. Laura want closer. Who was recently named the sports car racing program manager for general motorist racing. and laura. I just wanna start out. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. This is really exciting right well. I know that you're down. Daytona beach is well been exciting week for you and the race pergram. I want to get to that. But let's just start i without you. Were just recently named sports car racing program manager for general motors prior to that you were the program manager for gm's cadillac. Dpi program in the weathertech sportscar championship series. So just tell us about your job your role and how it's changed in the last week with this new position. Sure yes so by going over to be the sports car racing program manager in simple terms. What has happened is i now have all of our sports car programs which includes cadillac. Of course the camaro gt four program. And then the big one that i just picked up corvette which thrilled to be a part of of that team in that program and essentially the roles the same except just working with the different teams program manager's job at gm. We control the budget for the various programs. And that's laid out differently depending on if it's a customer program or factory program or you how we want to do that and then we also are the single point contact for the teams back to gm and also for the chassis suppliers and engine suppliers is so if they have any questions or any concerns that they want to relay back they see you go through me and then i'll take it to what i need to do. Either make a decision or or go above me. If i need to to solve a problem and then also very much. Integrated into design and development of the race cars at this point for all of those three programs. I just mentioned the cars are done. Which is exciting. So the new design and development. That i'll hopefully be getting into will be anything we do for future programs. Which is something that i'm involved in you know looking at. What would we like to do for from gm's perspective. Where do we wanna race. What brands do we want to race. All of that in the sports car arena. So it's nice. I have all different things. I get to be focused on which keeps the days different every single one and also keeps it so that i never get bored. Doing one thing like you said i mean. You've had a lot to your plate here with this new role. Previously mentioned you oversaw cadillac. And now. you've got corvette racing under your umbrella as well general question like how many people would you say you over at the company. I know you work with teams. So i guess it's probably different than if you were like a team manager but like in your role as a as a program manager that works with several sports teams. How many people would you say. You're you're looking here that's a. That's a good question If you count the teams is being part of the family. Which very much do even though. I'm not gonna go tell a mechanic what to do. That's not my job. But you know i wanna make sure that i look out for all them. Each team is at least you know what the rolex bring more people but twenty thirty people depending and then. What is this year at the rolex we have nine cars three camaros for lax and two corvettes. So i guess if you add it all up it's quite a few people especially with delara and ecr and then our engine team at gm included in there But like i said i. I don't really directly manage you. Know what the teams do in terms of telling the mechanics how to put the wheel on or anything along those lines. It's more so just giving them the connection. And then i control the purse strings for a lot of it especially the corvette program so you know ultimately it's like one of those love hate relationships. We have to work together to each. Get what we need

Project Car of the Week: 1969 Dodge Dart

"This week's projet carve. The week was the nineteen sixty nine. Dodge dart posted on the moped hunter. Facebook page on tuesday january fifth at nine a. m. let's read the ad nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine dodge dart sixteen thousand five hundred dollars. Nineteen sixty nine. Dodge dart very well built four forty. Tci seven twenty seven dana sixty with four fifty six in spool fiberglass front rear deck lead from bumper. Just put down the direct floor. Liner front end has been completely rebuilt. Everything has been changed including the torsion bars retires or hoosiers that don't have fifty miles on them. Amnesty distributors six. Al box brand new holly xp carb too much to list completely rewired with ron. Francis wiring also have the box with the extra wiring for other applications plus instructions also frontiers new and converted over to kelsey hayes. Four piston calipers shocks in front or new shocks rear. Our new drag shocks car is very fast. Title status is clean. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking here he goes again with another dart drag car. And you're right. I can't help that. I love dodge darts and i can't help that. I love drag car projects. They're just cool. I really do enjoy them. I think they're awesome. And i think that great project cars and this car just happens to be another dart. The reason why. I like this one so much is because it's pretty much ready to go to me. It looks like it just needs a few finishing touches and you're off to the races. I should say that like with any race car project. You'd go through this thing from top to bottom. But just based on what i see. I think it's a great candidate for a drag car project especially at under twenty grand. I mean this thing sitting sixteen five. I think there might be a little bit of room but you know just looking at the car and comparing it to other things that i've seen out there for maybe half the price the seems like a good bye. I will say this though. It may be kind of a handful on the street. And that's only because of the spool and the rear end ratio for those of you. That don't know a spool is a fully locked rear diff unlike locking diff the school locked at all times. So when you're turning you're gonna feel the rear end grabbing and gripping the road because the wheels will be unnaturally turning at the same rate of speed so it's kind of impractical parking taking turns and stuff. It might feel a little bit weird almost like if you're a four wheel drive on the street you know and you crank the wheel all the way and you try to turn. You're gonna feel that rear end like skipping almost The other issue that i saw was the four fifty six years. I think it would be really fun. Obviously light to light on the street. But i'd imagine if you're on the freeway a lot of could be an issue but that said you know a lot of people run these gears all the time even on the street so i guess it just depends on the type of driving. You'll be doing and if you're willing to put up with it it might be okay if you only take the car out occasionally on the streets but at sixteen thousand five hundred you have a great headstart to a fun strip car. That can possibly be driven on the street. It's a big lakhdar with some bigs and littles also has what looks to be centerline. Auto drags on it. So that's that's a plus in my book. I love those wheels. So big and little auto drags cool in my book. It's gotta side exit exhaust aluminum radiator. It's got a nice racing shift in it. Some cheap racing seats grant steering wheel. You know this things got some potential you know does it have its flaws sher- but we can work around those and we can take this platform as you get it and then make it your own. You know there's still room to improve and you know that's sure to tickle anymore. Part theseus fancy especially mind the thing even has really bars too so if you did drive it on the street the only addition to make it even more intimidating would probably be a parachute but discards cool has a ton of potential and it sure to turn heads on both the track and the street got nice orange paint a black bumble bee stripe. It's got a giant hood scoop on the front like the old school. I don't know what you call it like a pro street hood scoop. I guess I think that's the word i'm looking for. I think that's the description i can give. But it's not the typical hood that i would like to see on a mo- par but i guess it works. I like hemi hood scoops or six. Pack hood scoops. I think those are cool But it's got four. It's got the fiber last trunk so it's got four pins on that to hold it down Like i said it's got the whealy bars so cut that bad ass aesthetic to

"Either this is alan shark and welcome to another episode of shark bites. This is the first episode in the year. Twenty twenty one so hopefully you had a happy new year and looking forward to a much better year than perhaps we had last year. As you know the podcast delves into europe. Cio's and other tech leaders throughout local government to some extent state government and today. We are very fortunate. Have john walton. John is a chief information officer of the county of san mateo california. I've known him for over a decade and he is getting all these awards and whatnot and it seemed like this is an appropriate time to really have a chat into sheer the discussion with you. John brings over twenty five years of experience in the fields of information. Technology has a diverse background in both public and private sectors sending innovative technology standards providing visionary leadership for numerous organizations each receive tons of awards and most recently state tech recognized him as one of the thirty people to watch in the year. Twenty twenty twenty-eight came out towards the year so hopefully it'll make the list again in twenty twenty one but he sent a lot of things that hopefully we'll get into that for example. I believe he'd been on school board. You have been a race car driver so you have a lot of interest so john. Welcome thank you on. It's great to be here. I really enjoy having the opportunity to talk with you. Ve enjoyed our friendship and partnership over the years and really excited for twenty twenty one. Yeah it's got to be better than last year. Such such an anomaly. Such a different year. It can only get better so john. I always ask when we begin these discussions. I always believe that. Very few of us wake up in high school or even college and say when i grow up and when i go into the adult workforce i want to be a chief information officer so i'm always curious to know. How did you get to where you are. You've had a really great career and is far from over so if you would you've had an interesting journey so let's spend a couple of minutes talking about. How did you get to the county san mateo allen. Yeah that's That's a great question and probably the most complex question. You're going to ask me today. So i will. I will try to keep it to a couple of minutes. It was a long winding road to end up. Were ended up i. I grew up in. A family of there was a military family. My dad was missile defense and so we moved a lot as you can imagine and my dad used to like to say we lived in places where people didn't care where he blew things up so those rather rural and isolated and i wasn't into computers at all matter of fact i'm of an age where computers were still a relatively new thing so my exposure to computers were really through. My dad was a bit of what we call order now. Every time they would demo out a test site he He felt terrible about all the expensive computer equipment that was getting thrown away. Pdp lebanon's and things like that so he would haul them home in his pickup truck. And i grew up with garage. Full of old mainframe computers wang's ibm's and so those were my toys. My friends growing up but to be honest they didn't really interest me I really love nature and so When i teach classes at san francisco state and things like that mba students. I always tell them to become a cio. The first thing you do is you go to humboldt state university and get a degree in natural resource science. because that's where every good cio starts with a degree in natural resources. And and that's really how i got started i. I really wanted to be a researcher. A scientist i wanted to study nature and the environment and at that time The college was implementing backs computer systems. That was a new thing and it turned out that i wasn't really great at school. I i guess you would probably call it. Add now. but i don't do well sitting in classes listening but turns out a really good at setting up. Faxes for all the computer. Labs all the professors would give me extra credit to make up for my poor test scores by going in and configuring all the computers in the labs and so that would really help. My career started i. I did get a bachelor's degree in science. I enjoyed that but immediately after college. I started setting up. Computer systems. for counties and cities and private industry and it just went from there and in those days. It was really what you did. You just sort of went from project to project and it was word of mouth and if you knew anything about computers that kind of puts you a leg up on the competition so while up here i am now i must cio the great county here in california You know appreciative of all the recognition. Our county gets think it's really a reflection to the hard work. The staff here does and the leadership of the county the supervisors in the city manager. I think i am probably the best easiest. Cio job in california. They they make things very easy for me. I met one of your deputies at a recent meeting in there. You do have a very talented staff so tell us. I did read somewhere about this racing car thing so tell me a little bit about that. Well yes so. That's like. I said the the technology thing wasn't really a passion of mind when i was young and my dad is a hobby was an amateur stockcar razor so i grew up around tracks and engineers. It turns out you know. He was an engineer. Engineers love to build things and so he looked to build cars and fix cars so i grew up working on cars and building cars and race cars and have always been around those. And so that's always been my hobby. As a matter of fact the mechanic paid my way through college. Because i had an aptitude for that. And it's really just built from there. I think from my childhood you know as a as an executive technology really. I spend most of my time. Unfortunately you know in meetings in office buildings working on spreadsheets. Power plants you know. It's not as glamorous as probably some people think it is to be a cio for me at least and kind of tactile this rule I built my own race cars. I tune them my drive them on the track. It's really release for me. And all the things i do probably things. It helps me too many of us in this world. Nowadays we all try to multitask too much when meetings and checking email and texting. And i will say if you ever need to focus. There's nothing like being racetrack. One hundred thirty miles an hour going into a turn to cause you to focus and not worry about. Who's texting you calling you on the phone. So i still love it. I've sold most of my cars now. I have to left. And i still do it when i have the time. But it's it's less and less these days. Covert has kept us very busy. And i have two young sons that i try to spend as much time with is like can so until they get interested in racing than i probably won't spend as much time at the track is i have in the past

"It's like it's like the ring like so we got it and I was like five seconds off the pace that I'm like, what's again like how am I five seconds off the pace and then you know it's one of those things it's just like any other thing you get into long enough and you tweak things and. You figure stuff out and you get comfortable in it and we're still not super quick. But like we're we're quicker than the average SIM racers. Now, figuring out the you know that lasts a little bit but it was a blast in a series has been really great Do once a month that we go to a different circuit around the world. So we went to Suzuka like just a week ago and I got second there I think we're at Circuit Barcelona. Back do you guys all run the same car to make a nice and even or does he does it kind of some variety? Yeah. So it's all Ford's is obviously it's row show. It's all the Ford GT GT among our. So the new one and it's it's it's it's just a blast. It's fun car to drive. It's got great. downforce handles really well, and so we're all unequal cars and you know you look at the guys who were there. It's you know Jack Rogers Junior and Guy Cosmo and Joey atteberry and map plum. So it's all the guys that are running at the front of all the races or World Challenge races, and now we're like all in the SIM environment where we get to race compete against each other like on a weekly basis. So it's it's it's a blast and just talk whatever Shit GonNa talk as good. This board were just like this is great. You're the car it's great because you never like in real life. You never get to talk to the guys like Azure. Like, they should have that into real racing you should get Carter. Car. Racing Talk. All right just full open mic. Everybody's open calms. Egos. Nod. Stop you just like, yeah, that'd be pretty epic. Fun. For those of you watching the video version of the show and are wondering why the camera shot is locked on me. It's because I had to send Zach downstairs to let a deliveryman in and so he's not. To change the shot for the next thirty seconds. But because of that, I didn't have to end the show and go do it myself. So I'm sorry for the video people, they'll get a new shot as soon as that comes back. Probably ready to bad show, right? It's like. Putting right now we're at a new building because all we're getting so much stuff delivered here furniture in all kinds of craziness, and so at all hours of the day, there's just trucks is rolling up with stuff which is fine unless there's only two of you here and you're trying to do is show you know. I'm so excited to. Please do I mean I I I think that it's It's going to be the kind of place that people like us will will make a staple to stop by when we're. We're we're in Los Angeles for sure absolutely. Does the fact that we can't travel internationally right now really affect your racing career. Are you Kinda hosed on that or are you able to maintain in the US for a bit? Not. Really there was not honestly there wasn't much going on anywhere. It didn't really make a difference if you could travel or not like things are pretty much shutdown globally. What's I disturbing now? So they've just refined up probably about I don't know probably thirty maybe sixty days ago they to do some Vlan's I. Think they've run two or three races already this year and then they started opening up the tourist sessions and stuff. But the problem is is that you know because we're not doing a good job managing it we if we go out to anywhere. In toilet paper. Right exactly I, like. Fuck Dude. When they when we found out on March sixth or whatever it was and Gavin newsom was trying to be like, yeah we're GONNA closed down for two weeks. I'm like you mean two years. American. Talk because I had an opportunity to do British during guard again this year and I was like okay yeah totally WanNa come out and do this'll be great because I haven't done it in three years now and and they're just like, yeah, you gotta quarantine for two weeks. England. Immigrants. Little. Go across the English. Channel I'm sorry I made you run downstairs actor that turned out. Okay. Whatever that person was delivering. Can we put the shot back on rob now we've been looking at me for a minute. Pretty. Exciting. Oh No I had to I. I explained to the people what was going on talk. Much Prettier Than Me Zach is well I've got a better camera that's. GotTa. Phone. Eleven. Dude I really appreciate you coming on the show and spend the time with I. Know I know you're busy racing and What is the actual race itself August thirtieth August thirtieth how can people watch it? That can people watch it? Is there a stream? So, there's no stream they've been trying to do this for years. The mountain logistically is so tough that they can't get live feeds off of the street off the off the mountain, it just doesn't work. So we've we've got your good buddy J. F. who is showing up and Zach is going to. Zack's going up there as well. I will. I will be there. Also Looking forward to hanging out with you. What are you? What are you guys covering it for Zach? Discovery Oh for discovery, and what's the was? Can we say what the show is or is it just the pikes peak hill climbing? Special about Pike's peak. In different drivers. Pray from various Bank account sizes. You know. A different cars everything. So it's really really cool. Have you seen any really really interesting builds on the mountain so far that are like mind blowing. Well there's a couple of the portions are showing up. So you've got the the new nine, thirty five, you have sworn driving nine, thirty five. Legend he's quick in knows the mountain inside and out, and then you've got David Donner and Mark Donohue David, Donahue both driving the the club sport the GT to clubs. Oh. Cool. Yeah. Right I wonder. That'd be interesting to see what the performance deltas between the clubs sport and the nine thirty five like what is that Arrow body actually works? Talked to jeff the other day actually because I asked if I could borrow a car for my grand opening and he was like I would but I'm in Pike's peak and he said is about the nine thirty, five which he doesn't own I thought he bought it and I was like because he jeff's a baller could buy really wanted but it's My Hope. That joint. It's Ingram's car at a North Carolina the. Road Scholars Car but he said it is shockingly easy to drive. He said it's basically just like a really really. Fast. Streetcar. By so that's good. It looks like it would be a handful, but it's very. Very attractive in the bear carbon race livery it's fucking Oh my God look at that photo. We got.

"On the track, but I drove on the street, it was neat. It was a neat little car. It was actually really quick and even when we got the the new are S we. Build our wasn't that much off the base and that was a front wheel drive. Garver, not all noxious. The can you even really have fun in the street? Carney more or you just fucked? No I have a blast actually the the most fun fun cars is they They've got this Zouqi Swiss. All I love. Their, they're bit practice I mean they've got big rakes they've got you know big relatively sticky retires and whatever. But it's funny. It's like a hundred and twenty horsepower car and the take that or other nurburgring a blast I mean, you're just flat everywhere it's just as Latin. Breaking pretty much pretty much. It's just it's. It's a stare how much I have haven't that car. It's one of my more cars I've recommended that people and their offended I know they're just like, oh, sukey swift I have much faster than that. You're just like dude, no, go have fun. The exactly. So no so At the nurburgring you're paying per lap. So if you're driving a slower car, you actually get better value for money. This this this twenty-seven-year-old lasted me ten minutes. Car Might. Get. Sick right now we. Have Fun fast streetcars or just slow once. I went out Last summer we went out to wrote America when they had David Donahue and the GT to our asks at Road America break the lap record there Um and they invited me in the next day to come out and just do laps in that card. So they W- we had a lead follow. So it was me and David and I mean David Runs Pike's peak role friends and and they were like, okay to keep it under like one hundred, sixty on the straightaway David's passer. So he was in the GT three R S at I was in the detour s and we were just audit like just like you know hammered just like everywhere off track you know to wheel dress sliding everywhere and we ended up running a laptop that was less than a off of his pay record pace. Ab needed someone in his in his rear view mirror. Maybe that's just. Like, some people have like a lead car on cannonballs to like call out for cops. Track record can you can ride by mirror to keep me? In the. Pushkar. Exactly. We honestly we had. Days. That was just so much fun. I wrote America a fast Porsche doesn't get a whole lot better than that. The effort wise. Would proportion invited me there and he's like Oh can you make it? I'm like are you kidding me like who do I have to kill to get there? We we we ended up just like just going through a set of tires just just going out there I. Think I don't know how many laps we did, but it was just it was good fun to two drivers that respect each other to amazing cars and and just a really good day. Fabulous Racetrack. Passages throw. Johnson awesome. The road and then the rose core the. Best Racetrack. except thermal, which is like a club and always. Have a chef that The thing I love about Thurbers you go out there you go get your car and whatever, and there's the the freezer this there you open your ass of ice cream you're sitting in a lounge chair. A cold towel. Sir, it's exactly. It's actually really like how when they get off track there they wiped they do my windshield that's that's pretty sweet. They snap to and they clean your windshield and stuff and get your transponder adjusted their. Turtles. The real deal. Going, country club track I've CD's before now. You're like now no got it. Right. You guys figure this out although if you've got a really fast car that track a little too tight yeah it is. But at the same point, also I don't have the several million dollars to build a house out there. Let's complain about everything that's wrong with the place that we can't remotely afford to. Do that yeah. Not Really. Tight anyway. I've got a car overnight hundred horsepower. GonNa work out. No driven few times a couple of times in relatively slow cars and a couple of times I tried to do it in in relatively fast cars and I just had a better time I tested the ND Five Cup there, and it was like Oh was so perfect and like the new sti was like so perfect there and then I tried to go out and like a Turbo S. and I was like dude this. All the time. Dope though I really liked the proliferation of race track country clubs that the fact that that's the thing I. Love It. Yeah. Well a member there I know I know but then you'd be a gentleman driver and you wouldn't be Rob Holland that's the problem you'd have to give. You have to give up all of it. You couldn't. Couldn't just get the money. You'd have to give up the rest of it and go to the. Basically stopped racing cars actually make real money apple go back and race cars. It's like what's the you know the the Italian fishermen he's like he sits sits there eating fish and drinking wine all day, and he's like you know. If you grew your business shoot more fish and more wine and he does only so that he could go back to the beach later with his money and eat fish and drink. Fair point, but I'd be getting up in years. So it's one of those things eventually someone's going to stop paying you to drive race cars. Dude I think I, think longer than ever at this right now is that I say your name when you're pulling cutback say rob in a cool in on your cup I liked that it looks like it would look on the helmet of the car. That's that's rad good branding dead and A. Friend of ours had a wedding. She liked the. Our good friend who hers her plan his wedding like she is the best person ever could swag everybody came in there with their with their name on it so you can carry your drink. And not lose your drink or get rookie. Rookie rookie, but but I did lose my drink. I woke up no idea what was in my still had the cup. Aside. From where you where you living these days what part of the country are you living in Denver? Yeah. been there. I still had the place for years I've just never this is just perfect place for me to be. What's your home track high plains. I plans raceway. Fabulous track. Yeah it's a great club track. You know it's it's It's one of those things that we didn't have it for years.

"Good Choice. Good Choice Man of history. I like it. I've driven them before and they are just they are what to me old school racecar should be just massive power just really hard to control your banging gears. You're just hanging onto the thing it's people I. Remember Reading about the before I actually got a chance to drive what and the way they were explained was that it was like every corner soon as you hit the throttle was like lighting a stick of dynamite and it was just waiting for the future burned out. That's literally what the car was like you. Just like you get to the corner, you wack open the throttle in your like three to. Go, and you're just like you're literally hanging on for dear life which which one did you get to drive? I got to drive It was Oh God what was it the The ROTHMANS car. O. He's ever heard of that. Yeah, WHO'S Lee Keen? told me that that the nine thirty five think he was driving the Kremer one he said is by far the scariest car he's ever driven but also the most fun he said if he if he said basically the same thing that you said that if he had an hour race track that would be where he was at yeah yeah. One of those things where you just it's such A. It's an amazing experience like you just sit in there and you feel the history of the car and then you're already scared bit because you're driving some iconic race car and then you go from there to like you know wanting to drive it faster and faster and faster than realize you're sitting at, you know eight million dollar irreplaceable piece of history. But but you got to that point where you're like, Oh, I got this now. Now you're going and you have to be like, okay. All right do. Not Getting. Whatever ever talk to you or? You like okay yeah. I definitely am that. The. You know the guys who I've talked to that tried pike's peak in dirt and then in tarmac. A lot of them have said that it's actually scarier and tarmac because you're going so much faster the breaking so much more intense and you know the going from grip to suddenly not having grip versus the progressive nature of sliding on dirt is actually charlier. Yeah, but I'm not a dirt guy. Rally playing around I've played around in you know all sorts of little. You Know Fun road things, but it's it's I'm just home on the road and it's one of those things that. I guess in testing and stuff you just get used to where we're the grip levels are and And then you shut your brain off and so it really make a difference I guess at that point how many laps the nurburgring did it take you to really have it become second nature? So? It's funny. I. So I had done a bunch of track days. They're like long before we move there and then I came back whatever it was four or five years later and I kind of knew the circuit and I got in her what it was BMW Three M three, I think is what it was. Yeah. BMW M. Three and ransom laps like on a tourist day. And I'm like okay. I know where I am I know what I've got going on and I'm good like we're. So I go in jump in for the first. Race and I am in class. Twenty seconds off the pace of us like. Are you kidding me. Twenty seconds off in my life. Long course though. A Being four seconds off at, you know at wrote America. That's a long time. I felt pretty good at and it was it was it was a very bruising race and I I I remember getting out of the car and just being gutted like these guys are good. I'm never going to be able to run with them and because twenty seconds I'm thinking I'm like I've got the car like the limit everywhere. They're like, no, we got twenty seconds on you. So the next raise I'm like, okay I all I'm GonNa do is my whole entire focus is sticking with these guys just keeping them in sight figuring out where I'm losing five and it was like one of the things just like Oh you don't break here. It's a lift. Yeah. Oh, you're back to throttle here like and like I got through like three or four laps and it was just one of those things where it was like this epiphany happen and you then realized that the nurburgring is the greatest momentum track ever. You stay flat for a long time. Before about it like if you're like you're not at full throttle. Or going to throttle when you need to be you leave speed for the next thirty second right because the very the most important corner on a race track is always the one before the longest straightaway and the nurburgring has four or is it for how many? How many really really long full throttle sections are there for? Yeah. I would say, yeah. The funny thing is there's only one that's like a true straightaway. You're staying flat, but it's like blind corner. Literally flat for thirty seconds going I can't see the exit but. Yeah but that whole but picket pick a guy who's good or girl and and ride their bumper and figure out what they're doing is that's a great strategy. Yes, and then it was one of those things dame what you realize it. Then it's now I could figure out how to learn the rest of the stuff I needed to know and then from then on we one would we end up winning eight eight we had a class wins that's that's where I was. On the circuit. So, it was one of those things where it was just it just took a minute to register but. When you get there literally is gutting that you're you're so far off the base. It it took me months to to get to the point where I was probably. I'd say halfway through the first season and that was not only doing the races which gave me you know hours and hours in the car but also doing tourist sessions every day I had a yard scarred. So the the annual pass. So I just basically drove up for days flashed the card and and I went oh, season pass for tourists days What is what does that go for was like? Thirteen hundred euros fourteen hundred. Hundred Euros but thousand hundred. But I think it's twenty twenty-seven-year-old lap when I went. So if we do thirteen hundred divided by twenty-seven Bro, you do forty eight laps a year. That's worth it. Yeah. Any lapse. Lapse in a weekend. Out there. So like every night in the summertime from five, five, thirty, until seven, seven, thirty. So two hours at the track is open for for tourist session. So and we live like you said there. Yes. So it was like, all right. You know it's it's five o'clock quitting time you go outside you'd up in the focus rs you drive right around the corner you help on. And Boom you've got two hours. Yeah and they had that over in Rhode. Tech they had that European focus rs that was the the one that we didn't get here. The five cylinder front wheel drive one There was pretty cool. Yeah. He Let. Me have a go in that when I was up there I didn't..

"Just like I could drive anything but it's just one of those things that I've made my name in front wheel drive car. So when I get the pro contracts, that's what they look. They look at the resume they go. Okay. You've done factory Dodge Factory Volvo. You've raised world drink are racial British during car they go. Okay. You know you're going to be good in front. Wheel drive car but I've I've had success in in tons of real drive cars, gt three cars at the nurburgring l., the real world drive touring cars rule, Dr Gt cars you name it. You know it's pretty much. If you know if it's got four wheels engine and a steering wheel drive, you know gets really pigeonholed the front wheel drive rally guys because that's such a specific skill and it's so hard. If you're good at front wheel drive rally, just keep doing that Shit Chris. Murders. Here's the thing though is that this is what I tell guys all the time like I WANNA make it to f WANNA I WANNA make it to Indycar I. WanNa do all these things and I'm like, okay. Do you WANNA be an f one driver or do you want to be a professional racecar driver because if you want to be professional racecar driver, you go where the money's at someone's willing to pay to put you in a car. So yeah, sure. Would I would I love to be racing in right now? Absolutely but people are willing to pay to put me in a touring car that. So that's what Dr Yeah Is. There I mean I guess is the ultimate ultimate expression or ultimate series for Tori cars. As far as what the most extreme cars, just the iconic nature of it. A. Little Bit of both I mean, you look at the cars now and they're they are so far away from like anything literally single seaters with you know body workout it. Honestly for me like Ozzy V8 probably for me one of the top touring car series So v Eight and British during car are for me the highest form of touring car anywhere in the world. Have you had a goal and V eight supercar before? That was the one thing we did bathurst. That's what. Ali. Gavin was one of the teammates there and obviously works corvette drivers while the Ma and he was using that that that run to try to basically get in with with one of the teams and he ended up in an older gt three car. Setting time it was almost as quick as the works new GT three cars, and so you you'd literally got a ride at Bathurst, in the Va championship that year because of sick us was nicely. Damn right. There I think that'd be my my ultimate. Car because I think I could have fun with it without having to. Be Like Oh, you're not in the downforce yet I can't fucking drifted around the corner and have a great time talking. Yeah. Yeah the only problem with those guys they've got a spool differential. So it's a weird like thing to learn to try to driven spool differential cars before it says it's a bit different, I'm GonNa. Know what the what? What is a spool differential I don't know if I've ever heard that. Is Like I have to get the engineers to explain that one it's it's It's basically like It just literally locks as almost as soon as you go throttle. So you end up having like literally steer the car with the throttle sounds very fun. Seventeen year old. It's like driving with a welded diff-. Yes I've been there before this is all right.

"Today's episode is brought to you by vantage. If you need business communications, US bondage, they've got unified communications, contact centers, and Communication Api's little figuratively blow your mind and literally make your mind explode from sheer joy. But that's it. They're great at all those. They're not so great at explaining why we get morning breath what fracking is and making awesome short snippets of smart that satisfy the Internet, and all of us for that kind of stuff the person reading this is way better. So to recap von Edge for amazing business communications, brain stuff podcast for daily servings of smart vantage now we're talking. To brain stuff production of iheartradio. Hey Brain Steph Lauryn bomb here. Most drivers by car insurance to protect themselves. In case there an accident and their car or another person's car is damaged. But what about race car drivers the sport is built on speed NASCAR drivers for instance, raise it speeds of up to two hundred miles an hour, which is a little bit over three hundred kilometers per hour. And at speeds like that accidents are bound to happen and they do the cars are built specially to break apart on impact protecting the driver by scattering the force some Finns find the crashes to be the most exciting part of the sport. So who ensures these drivers and their race cars where accidents are par for the course? Well, if you know anything about racing and especially NASCAR, you know the drivers have sponsors and lots of them and some drivers cars might be sponsored by insurance companies. So does that mean the company ensures the car too? Sometimes but not always, and if not, then who does let's break it all down. I the pit crew and other members of a racing team are usually employed by the team, and that team usually provides them with health insurance just like any employer in the United States can provide you with health insurance. However, drivers are often independent contractors and employment status that generally comes with no benefits including insurance coverage of any kind. This does vary somewhat as some states have laws requiring workers compensation or disability coverage but that's an exception to the rule. In short drivers generally don't receive any benefits in less they're hurt on the job and often not even then. However professional drivers do have options for insurance since being a professional driver comes perks and major sponsorships. Some insurance companies compete for the right to negotiate contracts in exchange for publicity for their brands and most drivers are usually in good physical condition as demanded by the sport. So they pose few risks to insurance companies outside of the time that they're actually competing. But what about the cars a team owners can't just call up their local state farm rep and ask for policy for a race car instead racing teams typically must ensure their cars with companies that specialize in motor sports. There are several such insurance companies and they typically based the policies on agreed upon values of the cars and on the competition schedules. That is the more races on the schedules. The more the policies are likely to cost.

Its of that absolutely i mean it's kind of a sort of dreadnought adrift and diversity yeah but it's also he doesn't lose massive anytime you sideways you are by definition not quite going in the right direction but it wasn't it wasn't a half spin kind of thing he was it was russell argue a half spin this footage of that car spinning on i think that is keenan and during his very brief stint which i think is why he was then brought in.

"Four hundred sixty four hundred seventy it who's pattern paired and now can be cranked up to well over five hundred reliably where the nonsense going the other way because he's been exotic. If you blow porsche known seven engine then it's serious money and the other one is is modern chassis sentinel node. The lulu is a semi monocoque so you can you can stiffen everything in it takes it whereas the one of the moments seven strengths at the time was white space frame and you start stiffening suspension and hitting clubs and you just crap the suspension as this chassis tubes so ah the things that worked for imperial been negated really. Have you ever seen a five one basing ni- i've never seen i think the christ we got we was kid would revival where we completely missed it to run display in the in the sort of show yeah yes. I think the the opposition really the main opposition is for. They're actually works out for my matra teams that out during that period as well for always the main in one and it just didn't do good enough job to call wasn't caused path when it was a bit too heavy so bad weight ratio key thing and foreign got their car early enough so that you have instability problems portrait already sold by nineteen seventy think the five onto 'em which is the call paid ended on seventy actually jackie blue the normans yeah well y at the asteroid ring indices before it filed southern portion you. That's what they're guy. Inside five liter engine never just one of the reasons that i put forward what is being the greatest race in is because of the number innovations that they used as drilled brake discs come in during that point. I tried a._b._s. That she did even think about reverse in the cooling fan on the top of the engine to suck effectively kovac came under nathan produce downforce it actually shout the engine too much debris so the guy down that right but i try and different things all the time so kind of come back around see original question. Are we talking about kind of the opposition. That was that so how how how serious the three think of all says always this question mark is that you can judge it by the opposition but if a car such that forward it can make the opposition look weaker. Shall we say than it. Perhaps most fundamentally well. I think with the nine one seven is prime. Go from porsche was to win lamont so they it was an on slow nine hundred seventy when when an upward finally one month porsche i think they qualified fifth and it was a race of attrition they they came to the front. This was pushed dominated that race with entries and it's something that is not possible at nine. Three five is dominated the whole grad red but they were it was a real this tactic. I win yeah. I think that's failed. I would say now about fourteenth on the grid the nine hundred seventy empty car. I think they must have been lamont grit positions of one of those things that you quite quite easily yeah well. I think i would about twelve seconds off in qualifying and that russia has the <unk> richard. I read about that and he he driven he. He driven the white car and six calvert. They pulled sir. You won't get the finishes. It'd be a waste of time but be careful was adamant. He always wanted to tharcisse thingy hands on because you know why he said what wa drive on the corner that i can deployed applied on wall. Santoni mall are false nails and they absolutely sort of so carefully stumbling went out and just blitzed it yet the app. This is a quick as alfred atwood. I think we're trying to get the cost. The end got within three three hours or so the finish which was much further than portrait expected in the car. Bryk had no desire to drive the car.

It's not the rarely eureka moment necessarily. Isn't it sometimes a little bit more. The slow process isn't it but at blaze interesting that it's so he's kinda come down so effectively downside team. That's that's picked up on this. We'll i see why was that this elite porsche team and nineteen seventy s just just interesting that and that's the team is often forgotten match thing why it's made mentioned a lot burke but john trauma important figure actually terms of running teams in ira- subplots actually is his tension wade's with perish because they're completely different types of character while i was a very conservative small see everything i'm gonna go to the racetrack with is going going to be a it's gonna have been tested and we're going to run this pike except those hubs it so you bring in nineteen well that yeah absolutely but i think that that affected the relationship because that's only the second time the the iran the bushes and porsche came out with these new jobs for c. Bring on data and abide absolute moral most of the calls of foreign pashtun ferraris ba- <hes> yes these new hobbs handsome incested and why ran them in broken for free on the right and i think from then on that it just underline wiersma might not actually wants to run every porsche putting new three new things on the nominees have all the time. I think every single car is different and they were probably probably in a different spec pretty much every time they appeared. But what porsche did that really irritated while i was to have a second works team say ninety seventy four salzburg so what tended m._v._p. Alford was the best porsche drive in not part of the gulf setup so it was great for porsche. They offer the peace. Whatever it was to wire <hes> who would call up and say we're white into these proven and then the very next day part would be bolted on to the ports per car and the kale food co's all sorts of problems for them with classic while actually is when they brought out the four point nine liter engine and had an oil leak dream practice while now we'll go back thorn half's and found the four point nine was in the alfred r._n.'s car the following day he will disappear down the road when that opponent you so there was quite a lot of ever really saw i like to ally wire and some of the porsche management it's funny as ninety seven so you look at that that the the why porch was that strongest car that didn't manage to win lamont though saving that your vote of see they were won by a porsche but not alive so that by the nineteen seventy six point kosovan becomes his all conquering..

It's the first week porsche up to that point portrait been because remember it was a small companies companies well. It wasn't a big powerhouse.

This is the three sixes you go ferrari and ford going at it with big heavyweight calls and pull. She were quite good at picking up. Good class results occasional rule win at somewhere like yeah the talk of florida where you know the powwows and what you needed and then two things happened. They changed the regulations. I will seem sort of are running now really given how quickly the nominations were just a couple of years later but the thing there was concern that the ford marque fours and the peaceful ferraris nine hundred sixty seven were getting too fast and so they sort of cut cut back to sports pro talks to be three liters but then they once it's. They realized that cars aren't the g._t. The smaller engined one were they were quite a few of those out there so the the governing body said if you've got fifty of these cars you can get the five liter effectively production g._t. That's pushing it a bit and then the really so that is not our interplay in the non i seven because we'll see what the big stuff gone and then the real the thing that got got the ball rolling with the non seven was they cut the fifty down to twenty five and then <hes> is a key person in this in the porsche story sort opportunity unity in unpersuaded porsche to go.
