MP 458: Mark Raffauf, My Racing Life and Career

January 19, 2019

Mark Raffauf has spent most of his adult life as part of the IMSA family. Dating back to his teens in the 1970s where he became an integral part of the organization during its GT glory days, he went on to become the key person behind its GTP era before shifting his attention to Grand-Am, and today, the relationship continues with his leadership role in the new IMSA championship.

Raffauf sat down for an episode of My Racing Life and Career in September of 2018 to share some stories about growing up in IMSA, living through amazing times--even some of the narco controversies that his the series--and the new book, 'IMSA 1969-1989', he's written with Mitch Bishop, son of IMSA founders John and Peggy Bishop.

If there's one person who serves as the living embodiment of IMSA, it's Mark Raffauf.

MP 445: The Oral History OF The Fast Masters Series

December 24, 2018

Bring some of racing’s biggest names out of retirement from Indy car, sports cars, NASCAR, and even the NHRA, wedge them into 12 of Jaguar’s brand-new, ultra-rare $1.3 million road racing XJ220C supercars, then drop the ageing heroes onto the claustrophobic 0.686-mile Indianapolis Raceway Park oval and eventually its ‘roval’ as part of the first made-for-TV racing series for 50-and-older icons.

What could go wrong?

Back in the summer of 1993, the gorgeous XJ220Cs, built in England by Tom Walkinshaw Racing, were bashed and battered for our amusement like demolition derby cars at the county fair.  The six-week special airing on ESPN, modeled off the cable channel’s Thursday Night Thunder concept, delivered five weeks of heat races to whittle down the grid for Fast Master’s grand finale. Quickly dubbed the ‘Crash Masters,’ it received the sport’s most accurate nickname.

On its 25th anniversary, the Fast Masters series continues to stand as one of the most delightfully unhinged racing concepts to become a reality.

Told by Terry Lingner, the series’ creator and producer, Bobby Unser, its first and only champion, and TWR USA boss Tony Dowe, who supplied and maintained the cars on behalf of Jaguar, here's the oral history of a racing series that barely survived its first event, presented as a special feature on the Marshall Pruett Podcast.
