Episode 160 — OpenPaddock.net Podcast

If you missed it last night on ETV Live!, we had the honor of speaking with the newly signed pilot of the #9 Firestone Indy Lights racing machine for Belardi Auto Racing, Mr. Peter Dempsey. Peter shared with us his experiences struggling to find a stable ride through the end of 2011 with Andretti Autosport, racing and coaching in 2012 at Indianapolis and Detroit this past season with Younessi Racing, and ending the 2012 season with Belardi. We also asked him to do some prognostication about the competitiveness of the Belardi squad in 2013 given their quick pace at last week’s Chris Griffis Mazda Road to Indy Open Test on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway infield road circuit.

Doug discusses the results of the MRTI Open Test, noting some new names at the top of the time sheets. Shaun leads us through the roller-coaster world of the World Rally Championship as manufacturer roles changed dramatically this past week for two teams. We recap the Korean (*yawn*) GP, and Doug talks about the Kansas City Region of the SCCA’s first rallycross event. Mr. Dempsey was even kind enough to offer some driving instruction for the photog that fancies himself a racer.

Sit back with your favourite beverage and enjoy! Remember, in addition to the podcast, you can catch us live every Tuesday night at 9:30pm Eastern, 8:30pm Central, at ETV Live! Join us in the chat room to heckle Shaun, Mike, and Doug, and ask your questions to their guests.
