With the Porsche GT Team set to exit IMSA's WeatherTech SportsCar Championship following the 2020 season, we partnered with Porsche Cars North America during the farewell to capture and preserve the in-car audio from its amazing 911 RSRs at numerous circuits on the calendar.

Our first offering comes from the unique Charlotte Roval as Earl Bamber and Laurens Vanthoor take us for a ride in practice with the No. 912 RSR and its 4.2-liter flat-six engine screaming between the oval's walls and throughout the winding infield section as a joyous close to the year.

MP 1005: Catching Up With Robert Wickens

December 29, 2020

Robert Wickens joined us in March for an episode of Catching Up With meant to run days later during the NTT IndyCar Series opener at St. Petersburg, but with the event's postponement due to COVID-19, our visit with Arrow McLaren SP's driver coach, where he discussed mentoring Pato O'Ward and Oliver Askew, his goals to make a return to the cockpit, and his ongoing physical rehabilitation went unused.

So take a step back to earlier this year and listen to the always inspiring Canadian in our short-form interview show as we get ready for the long-awaited arrival of 2021.
