With rednecks revving their engines outside Mr. Neely’s hotel room and the soft, but ominous, purring of what sounds like a velociraptor every now and then in the background, we present Episode 179 of the OpenPaddock.net Podcast! Kevin Neely and our photographer Brian McKay report from Day 1 of the IndyCar pre-season open test at a very wet and soggy Barber Motorsports Park. Mike Shaw gives us a recap of this weekend’s WRC Rally Mexico in which Ken Block put in a surprising performance. He actually finished the rally! Mike Whitesell and the crew discuss other news in IndyCar and Formula One. Mike says, “Go home FIA VP. You’re drunk!” Finally, Doug Patterson gives us a brief update on the Mazda Road to Indy news.
Day 2 of the IndyCar open test at Barber has already passed us, and Day 3 is underway, but look for a supplemental podcast later in the week where we will discuss the testing results and happenings. Meanwhile, please enjoy Brian’s excellent images from the test. There’s some pretty cool looking liveries out there this year!
