"Hello everyone and welcome once again to be on the grade with me Tom and well. What a season opener! We had in Austria at the weekend. Breathless racing reliability issues the extent to which we haven't seen in years and some overtaking controversy. It was F. one at. It's brilliant best as a spectator. It was hard to keep track of what was going on, so just imagine for a second if it was your job to know everything that was happening on track and in the pit lane. From Roman garage on exceeding track limits to Lewis Hamilton and Alexander Album colliding in the closing stages, or even Sergio Perez speeding in the pit lane. There would be a mind, bogglingly complex task, and that's where my guest this week comes in. Michael Massey is the Formula One race director and safety delicate. He's the most senior FIFA official attending every race, which makes his office in race. Control the place by the buck. Stops He still relatively new to the job having taken the reins at the start of one, thousand, nine, hundred, nineteen, following the tragic death of his predecessor, Mental Charlie Whiting on the eve of last year's Australian Grand Prix overnight, in what was only his tennis race working for the FAA Michael stepped into the breach, and he rose to the challenge, magnificently remarkably given the responsibility resting on his shoulders. Michael is only forty one years old. That makes him just a few months older than me. Reichman yet at races. Kimmy has to danced his tune. But Michael wouldn't be intimidated by anyone in the Formula One paddock. Young, but he's the hard yards into. Get where he is today back home in Australia. Senior roles in Super Turing and supercars. was even the CEO of Rally Australia and his first touch points with Formula One were in Singapore and career remember that where he was heavily involved in delivering the inaugural grown praise for those countries in two thousand and eight and two thousand and ten so hopefully you're starting to build a picture of Michael in your head. Well, let's now hand the canvas to him to complete the picture. From running races to running drivers briefings, Michael has one of the most interesting roles in Formula One and he discusses all I. Hope You enjoy our compensation..

"I'm going to be running the New York marathon for the first time this fall. What is your name and what do you do? My name is Jim. Hi. I'm senior vice. President of events for NEO donors in the race director of the New York City Marathon. So The New York City Marathon isn't until November wrecked. Are you doing as a race director right now in February? Well I mean plenty of things for the Marivan but at New York roadrunners. We're year round. Not FOR PROFIT. Lead produce about fifty races a year long as all sorts of other community programmes from us to seniors. So we're busy around almost every weekend we have a race so what does getting ready for a race. Look like like what's an example of a race. That's coming up soon. And what are you doing? It looks different depending on. What's going on right so what we call weekly races. We have a lot of races in Park Property Central Park Prospect Park in the lake. Usually someone of my team. I fifty fulltime people on my team and someone would own that everyone owns kind of portfolio events. Say run point an emmy. My senior team are there to support them and guide them through for them. When you get to the bigger things like the United Airlines. Nyc HALF IS NEXT MONTH THE POPULAR. Burgum half is in in May and then obviously the marathon. It comes all hands on deck and everyone owns kind of a peace within bringing altogether. What is the most fun one own do you think? Is there like a certain race that yourself does John Control? It's really a lot of them. obviously the marathon is like it's. It's not only in Vegas Marathon. The world is one of the biggest events and World Barnum and the the magic and feeling from that one. You can't be. There's some really really cool things. We do. The new balance thousand mile which has a lot of history to it or in the near committee which was the first all women's road race in the world. That's a ten K. ten K. starts outside of Central Park and finishes in the park about ten thousand women. It's a near forty nine. It started a couple of weeks before title. Nine in nineteen seventy two so take a lot of pride in that one. The pride run the Achilles impossibility. There's so many teams always jockeying for all of them. So I was reading another interview that you did saying your routine I think before the popular Brookland half or you started at twelve a m. You were out there. How can get roads blocked off where he would? Police tell us a little bit about your routine like the night before race. Is that typical? Well that's like behind a curtain type stuff right so we call it in. Our group called ducks on the pond. Above the water you see deduct gliding along below the water paddling. Like heck is it is not. We love we do. But it's not easy right. We are turning communities of courses and you got to do it in a very finite period of time and then you gotta disappear like you were never there so at a lot before the big street races for sure. It's a coming all night affair and then you know. Luckily working with the city agency partners here in New York City. No one puts on big events like they do so. We're going to do big things this city to do it in. And they're amazing partners. We couldn't is not just us in our own. This is the city. Come together to make these things happen. How many days in advance before the New York City Marathon? Do you have to start kind of reshuffling? The roads lots happens like well today. I I live outside the city right now. Do a pretty significant commute but I live in the city for a month before the marathon. My family got love them. They allow that to happen when you get post. Labor Day coming into the marathon. It's kind of all hands on deck. All the time is not a nine to five or for sure and he can roll up your sleeves and whatever it takes you never know. Yeah you were telling me before you start the enormously. Have a two hour commute do yeah and so then for that month before the marathon. Are you living out of an AIRBNB? I'm in a hotel right midtown. Nice to go from significant commuted basically no commute for. And how long are your days during that? I don't know it doesn't matter there's such adrenaline to it. Time goes out the window. Just whatever it takes. What are some examples of the little tasks that you're doing during that month that the average runner hopefully never thinks of or never has to deal? You don't want them to think of that as far the magic. They don't need to worry about that. We got it just. I want them to know. We got you covered. You know whatever can happen. This is new. York City is not a stadium or an arena. Right it's we're GonNa go twenty six point two miles through fibrous and the city keeps going right so there's water main breaks. You know. It's amazing bike lanes going in over the place like we always got to be able to hit the curve ball and roll with it and and figure it out with the city as we go things happen all the time But as far as what we do what is something that when wrong was poised to go wrong before last. November's race that your team had to deal anything goes wrong. It's just always challenges and you got to work through them right. So here's a specific one central Park West which is amazing roadway along the Post Finish area the marathon where we put our broadcast compound and lane went in there a month or two before the marathons. We had to work with the city to come up with a plan of how we're GonNa have broadcast compound there so we can show the world this amazing event but still have a bike lane. It's functional whatnot. Those type things. We had to work through old time. Broadcast Compound is so that folks who aren't in New York City or who have a loved one who is running a marathon kind of like get a window into what's happened so yeah I mean. The marathon is broadcast live across the country and in like hundred eighty territories around the world with the broadcast. Reach of over. Seven hundred million people to make that happen Rockets pound meaning like all the production trucks and generators and whatnot to to make the actual whereby broke has happened. It's not just an overnight thing that's about a week of work to get that all set up so you can broadcast nationally and internationally. It sounds like the kind of work that would go into broadcasting the Oscars or something going up broadcasting work right so a big part of our job is creating our venue right. We don't own the stadium. We create the venue. We operate it. We gotTA MAKE SURE. Everyone owns the properties and whatnot that we're going to utilize they're totally on board so my job is so much about relationships internally within our organization and externally with the city everyone has to be on the same page with what you're GonNa do before you do it because it's going to pop up real quick and then all sudden it's there. Yeah so you're kind of creating like a stadium that's into that new bike lay in the event. Exactly what's that conversation with? The city like to be able to plop a broadcasting confound bike laid the marathon itself is so ingrained into the culture. It's a cultural phenomenon. It is woven into the fabric of the city so when we talked to anyone at the mayor's Office of Special Events and my pd your FDA and wires sanitation parks. Everyone is just as invested in a New York City Marathon as we are so the conversations are amazing. Because it's always. How do we make this work together? It's not about us is about New York City in showing New York City to the rest of the world. That's where the world comes to run an amazing day as I'm sure you know yeah I was just GonNa say for listeners. Who might not live in New York? Who aren't familiar with the marathon. It really I WANNA say shots city is it kind of does like I live on for Avenue right next to the marathoner out on that day. You're like okay like if I'm going to go to Brunch has to be like on this side of the street. They're going to be thousands of runners river in this year's a huge year for us. It's going to be the fiftieth. Tcjc marathon right so yearlong celebration but that it only happens from history and time you know it. It's become accepted right is. It's disrupted for sure but then when you get to the point where like in Brooklyn Long Fourth Avenue. Leather fluid stations along there have four generations of families out there supporting it. They signed up the day after the marathon for the next year. And it's like part of being part of their community. There's also like that one hundred twenty five live musical acts out there. That happened for a long time with even outside of us. People just started showing up and playing music so we legitimize it valid decade or so ago and put them all in our permit so it's the community comes out and supports. Us event in his part of it so people live right in the neighborhood. That's passing through. It's kind of like a giant party. It's a huge party. Yeah we call it. Twenty six block party.

"race director" Discussed on Airplane Geeks Podcast
"That's just super exciting for the sport. And we're really happy. How twenty eighteen ended up? We're the airplane geeks. So let's get geeky firm moment. What telemetry are the aircraft's sending you? So in race control. Which is basically the the CIC the information center, if you will of the entire event, we have really kind of two groups in there. One is the aviation side and one is the event production side. So from telemetry side what the planes are sending me or the ABA Shen group that's in race control items that we think about from safety in aviation perspectives. But then also from sporting perspective. And so the telemetry that comes to us that we use that we take immediately that would go into judging scenario would be g and airspeed. So we get a mediate indication of an over g situation and we get. Of course, they're they're airspeed throughout the entire race. You're getting airspeed where are you getting the airspeed from it's actually from the GPS side of positional data. If you will if you look at how elaborate our ghost track is, right? That's really what has sophisticatedly advanced are positional data because we want that to be super super accurate, right? We want that to make sure that if you're looking at it in your were using it from spectators perspective as a who's winning who's writing? Seeing the ghost images that you project. Exactly. So that ghost image. It's real critical from a credibility perspective that that's accurate, right? You don't want in real life for the plane to fly through the finish gate, and then the go specter to come in second. But then all of a sudden the guy behind XY has the faster time that would really damage the credibility of the whole system. So a lot of effort and time and expense at cetera has gone to that positional at data. And so that actually what is also what helps calibrate all of our other. Airspeed G force all that type of stuff is coming from this super complex. Gee, whiz box called a p p r you that's in the aircraft. All right. So the pilot though has to be on his skill part. He's flying off of indicated airspeed. So he's having to calibrate that quite indicated. He's he's seeing the same thing. We're seeing also we have a screen. He's not just looking at a at a pneumatic airspeed indicator in his plane. He's looking at a digital readout that exact same as us. So again from a sporting perspective. We don't want him to be looking at something different than us. We want everybody to be looking at the exact same number. So the big screen, and they can set it up differently depending on the pilot. What his desires are just like a heads up display in a fighter you, can you can pick and choose how you want certain things done and in the g force lights, etc. So that's that's where the pilot has some choice. But. He's looking at the exact same number that we're looking at in all of his all of his data. How are you transmitting that from the aircraft to the ground is that x what part of the spectrum different radio? What are you doing? Did. You know, you're getting out of my level of expertise. That's our technical group. That is actually the ones that are on. That are putting the boxes in the airplanes. All I know is the race director is that it's accurate. It's exactly what the pilot is looking at it goes into this fancy box, and then this fancy box since it down to my screen, and then I get to evaluate what's going on. And then judge both from what I see outside. In addition to what I see digitally. Okay. Now as the rare race director, are you acting as the air boss or does your boss work for you? How's that is? So we call it a race. Director in the red areas. And I'm responsible if you if you're trying to compare it to something like an air show, the there's an air boss function to my job as so air boss is part of what I do in the sense of IM controlling the air side of things. But in addition to that, I also have a safety hat on from sporting perspective, and his sporting hat on in the sense that the judges are assisting me, and I'm calling somebody knock it off..

Please explain the difference between the master class series and the challenges series in terms of the aircraft and what they're able to deliver. Well, first off, I guess challengers masters around the same engine, propeller and exhaust is to keep them all fairly similar performance. We d- rate the challenges down at twenty seven hundred fifty rpm from twenty nine fifty to manage this be of it better. But a challenger airplanes or stock as far as the cowing, canopy and wingtip. So we'll answer things usually see masters modifying are all stock on the challenger airplanes. But otherwise, they're all except for me Abruzzo. They're all at five forty as either v twos. Threes all the challenges would be twos. When you're designing. A course are you looking to stress or showcase.

What it was is basically so you you do this race for him, and it would, you know, and have where the race as really is one. The one, and then every time someone would make a mistake or get confused the next year, the race director would bold it or put it in all caps or make it red, and this continued over. Until they really looked like ransom notes This like. is kind of like little pause on the mouse, and you know, Good. make it. If we make it red. Yeah, they were just at every one of them was completely different too. So you know, like you'd, you'd get these things and it was like a, it was a a reading exercise to figure when the race started. And I know I use. I talked to a client one time when they had all this bold stuff and underlines. And I said, why are you doing that? And they're like, because we want it because that's a special part that's important. And I was like sport that's important, too. And I said, the incredible 's. I was like, because when everybody's special, the no one. And so I was just like, you can't you gotta gotta make a decision about what's going to be special and everything else just kind of back up a little bit, you know?

And if you're looking for the best interface, you're ever going to have into your computer. That happens to also record that also happens to have the best pre-empts ever and by the way, if you're wondering what a preemptive that is, when you plug your mic into the into your recorder, the circuitry that records that actually is half the deal.

It affects the quality. Of it and it and it peaks and it does all these other horrible things to your to your to your audio. This is probably this along with a good Mike is probably the the, the biggest investment that you'll make. If you're doing podcast or you're doing anything that needed requires audio, this is probably the most important investments that you'll make. What are you gonna record in what is going to interface into your computer? And the great thing is you don't have to buy two different things. Now, we used to have USB pre twos which down devices also makes and where do they come from? I mean, this is a much less expensive piece than what sounded vice is done in the past.

You can never graft it onto you because as a guy who's constantly thinking about everything all the time. When you drive that car, it is just there's nothing else you think about other than what you're doing. There's just no other thoughts. I cannot explain it anymore.

Which does you just said I did five or six weeks ago with this lunatic. Eric Byrnes turns around mosquito pass, which is thirteen one, right? You did awesome. In this. I think the kind of Pitta Mayes that the we do crowd. What motivates you to do this crazy stuff? Well, Leadville was this weird passion started by my mom, I, I was ten years old. I broke my arm one day before summer vacation, and my mom went to the library and got me these magazines. That's when you could get magazines at the local library. And there was a picture in one of them of the backside hope pass and they just started doing Leadville and I just remember that picture and quote from Ken clover, the race director better than you think you are. You can do more than you think you can. And I, I ran downstairs and said, mom, I'm gonna do this someday and she's she laughed and but it became this passion that someday I was going to do. It turned out I was a real crappy runner. So it was it was it was a great passion with little ability to follow it up, but and then I made this commitment to do it. And right before she passed, she was seven tries in and she said, you gotta do it. You gotta. Do it. And I said, mama promise, I will. And, and last year I did and you know it worked out. Thanks to my wife, Kristen, thank God, it's action, Texan. And another thing to be. It's one thing to be a lunatic. It's another to be married to lunatic, but there's a lot of your listeners that are on both sides of that, and she was the big difference maker. And then honestly, and I'm not affiliated with them, but but CTX Carmichael training systems, I hired them Jason coupon. Another Texan that wrote this great book on all to running hired him, John Fitzgerald, Adam saint-pierre and Kerlin Malcolm, they, they sherpa me through that thing and we got to the end of it.
