MP 504: Inside The Sports Car Paddock, March 18, with Braun, Bamber, McNish, King, Kern, Leupen, and Zurlinden
It's the ninth installment of the Inside The Sports Car Paddock interview show, and coming out of a busy IMSA and WEC weekend at Sebring, we have seven short-form interviews for you starting with CORE autosport race engineer Jeff Braun and Marshall Pruett on wet-weather chassis setups and strategies. Next, it's Porsche GT driver Earl Bamber on the evolution of his GT3 racing team, then Sebring Grand Marshall Allan McNish joins in to discuss his career after retiring from the cockpit.
Aston Martin Racing's Dave King follows to talk 2020 Hypercar and the brand's growing GT3 and GT4 sales, and we close with three interviews starting with factory Porsche driver Lars Kern, whose job testing and developing road cars led to a surprise role as a racer in IMSA, then Toyota Gazoo Racing principal Rob Leupen checks in on 2020 Hypercar, and Pascal Zurlinden, Porsche's Director of GT Factory Motorsports, takes us home with thoughts on fielding dual IMSA/WEC efforts at Sebring.
