  • I love the sound clip at the end of your podcast! Sounds like one of the M3 rally cars?

    • You have a good ear! That clip is of Dave and Rick Hintz’ BMW M3 from the “Nameless Rally” in 2013!

      • Had a felling it was the Hintz’s M3. I could listen to that sound clip over and over.

        • That cackling laugh at the end is unfortunately me. The first run of the stage I stood in the apex of a hairpin while a photog stood way outside and kept getting clouded in dust. For the second run I agreed he could be there and I’d move. So I moved about 50 yards to the beginning of the straight they’d run after the 180 hairpin. I watched as Hintz over cooked the corner and had to correct to which caused the back end of the car to shower the poor guy with dirt and rocks!
