Special Guest Racing Driver
Audio issues for first few minutes are eventually fixed
Randy Pobst is a well known professional racing driver for many series, organizations, and manufacturers including the testing driver for Motor Trend on the endlessly entertaining “Head to Head series” for many years. During this interview, we cover a good amount of Randy’s extensive racing history as well as many other topics including our Lucky Dog Honda race car and front wheel drive car setups in general.
Unfortunately, we missed a great discussion on the importance of tires due to a microphone failure. Tires are the first thing Randy recommends toward improving your track performance, followed by brakes, then reliability improvements. We also took this opportunity to discuss with Randy what he would recommend in terms of driver improvement, including key driving skills, weight transfer, and controlling the weight management. He offered many insights during our talk, but one we had not applied yet was to “Think power out of a corner, brake into a corner and then roll onto the power to go fast”.
We were in the pit area with a lot of background noises, as well as one microphone failure until about 24 minutes in, when we were able to fix one of the microphones so please bear with us, some of this information is incredibly valuable. We apologize for the higher background/hiss than we would have liked. We hope you enjoy the episode. Randy is a great driver, but an even better person. We would love to have him on again at any point.
