Did you check out my February 24 Episode with the legendary John Morton? If not, be sure to do so before listening to the latest episode, released today.
Vintage Racing Podcast listeners seem to share my goal of making episodes interesting to a wide range of listeners, including professional mechanics and race car preparers, ex-professional racers, relatively uninformed spectators, current vintage racers, and vintage car lovers and collectors.
Some listeners have asked for more conversations with famous ex-racers or professional race prep shop operators, while others have asked for interviews with the regular folks who race vintage cars for fun, having never professionally raced, or maybe not even club raced during a car’s production era. I think that’s because we can appreciate and learn from the pros, but we can relate to the amateurs like ourselves.
One of the recurring themes of the conversations on Vintage Racing Podcast is how to keep vintage cars and vintage racing relevant to younger generations. With the rising costs of vintage race and street cars, parts, and preparation, and the rising costs of getting to the track and competing, coupled with the aging of professionals who maintain, rebuild and repair these cars, it’s reasonable to assume that vintage racing will have to include later cars, and in some cases, more acceptance of later modifications.
My guest this episode is Kevin Corrigan, from Michigan, near Detroit. Kevin was recommended to me by Rich (gprocket on AlfaBB.com), and Vintage Racing Podcast listener who shared suggestions for contemporary racers of vintage cars. Kevin could just as easily be club racing a spec-Miata or other late production car, but for a variety of reasons he shares, prefers to vintage race an Alfa Romeo GTV2000. Kevin works in the automotive industry, and although he may not be able to share decades of racing experience with listeners, he does share is his viewpoints and enthusiasm as a young participant in the sport, which I think is something that vintage race organizations need to encourage.
