January 21, 2020

It's the 32nd installment of the Inside The Sports Car Paddock interview show and we open with veteran race engineer Jeff Braun on how the various Balance of Performance changes made to the Rolex 24 At Daytona grid will have significant knock-on effects that might not be obvious.

MP 732: Corvette C8.R In-Car Audio, Daytona 2020

January 20, 2020

Take the first in-car audio ride with the brand-new Corvette C8.R, courtesy of Corvette Racing.

With the mid-engine supercar being readied for its debut in IMSA's WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the team placed our Marshall Pruett Podcast audio recorder directly between the 5.5-liter V8 engine's exhaust pipes, and with the trio of Antonio Garcia, Jordan Taylor, and Nicky Catsburg flying around the high banks of Daytona International Speedway during testing, the unique pitch created by its flat-plane crankshaft is captured creating a clear sound separation from its front-engine predecessor, the title-winning C7.R.

MP 719: Timo Bernard on Retirement

January 6, 2020

Germany's Timo Bernhard is too young to be hailed as a legend, but his record in sports car racing, with overall victories at Le Mans, class victories at Daytona, and multiple championships spread across the American Le Mans Series and FIA World Endurance Championship suggest his body of work will be hailed as one of the greatest accomplishments for any driver in the 2000s.

Having announced his retirement in December, Bernhard called in to discuss his extraordinary career and what the future might hold in a special feature captured for the Marshall Pruett Podcast.

MP 716: Porsche 911 RSR In-Car Audio, Sebring 2019

December 30, 2019

Say hello to 2020 with the trumpet of the gods.

In the first of a multi-part feature captured in collaboration with Porsche North America, we have in-car audio from the glorious Porsche 911 RSR to offer, taken from the tail of the championship-winning IMSA GT Le Mans machines during practice for the 2019 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

Anticipating the arrival of the new 911 RSR with its side-mounted exhausts, we wanted to preserve the cry of the original 911 RSR, done by placing our recorder just above the screaming 4.0-liter flat-six engine's rear-facing exhaust fury. For this episode, you're riding with Nick Tandy, Patrick Pilet, and Fred Makowiecki in a race they'd go on to win!

More episodes recorded from Road America, Laguna Seca, and Road Atlanta in 2019 will follow.
