New Vintage Racing Podcast

Hello,

Introducing a new vintage racing podcast for drivers, race car owners and crew, enthusiasts and spectators of vintage racing, and vintage car collectors.

My co-host is Dave Vegher, Alfa owner and racer, past winner of 3 national championships and other awards, renowned U.S. race engine builder, and preparer of winning vintage racecars at his Veloce Motors West shop in Petaluma, California, one of the best shops in the States. Dave builds a lot of winning motors for various classes of race cars from GTVs and GTAs, Elan 26Rs to formula cars, to sports racers. I am not a racer, but am a GTV2000 and double Lotus Elan owner (S3 and S4), own other vintage cars, and am an enthusiast of vintage racing here on the West Coast.

We have a new web site, shown below, which is home base for our podcast, and where you can find our episodes, photos, helpful links, and blog posts. The link to our episodes takes you to our new media hosting service where you can listen to or download the episodes, and subscribe to the RSS feed to be automatically notified when new episodes are posted. Episodes are available on iTunes - search for Vintage Racing Podcast.

We'll be covering the various racing groups - CSRG, SVRA, VARA, etc., and discussing the various racing categories - FV, FF, FA, F1, Sports Racing, etc. We'll also talk about vintage street cars; selecting, collecting, maintaining, and more. We also plan to interview many of the local vintage race drivers, mechanics, and luminaries. As you might imagine, with 40 years in the business, Dave will have plenty of stories for me to extract and share with listeners.

If any of you would like to share your ideas, provide questions for us to try to answer about vintage motors, race prep, race tracks, etc., please feel free to email me at:

Greg Tatarian

Cool, N.

Our fourth will be recorded this weekend, and should be available next week. Dave and I will be talking about the detailed restoration, development and racing of his storied Chevron B23, and his co-driver experiences in the Le mans Classic in Bert Skidmore’s Lola. We’ll also be sharing some listener emails.

Stop by and check it out...

I listened to the first two podcasts. They're good.

I like the interview format. Any chance you can talk to the folks at Norman racing? Lots of great content there. John, Dan, Dennis.

Thanks, Greg. The third episode picks up speed and is more informative for those interested in getting a racing license and getting into vintage racing.

Excellent suggestion about Norman Racing! They are friends of Dave's and just across the Bay. Thanks for that.

Cheers,

Greg

Episode 4 is now on iTunes.

Dave Vegher and I cover a lot of ground in this 4th episode. First off are some listener emails – thank you! Next, Dave talks about obtaining, restoring and developing his 24 Hour of LeMans Chevron B36 2-Liter sports racer. We move on to discussing the origin and race development of BMW M12 engines, talk about an Alfa GTA engine in the shop, and many other current engine projects for the 2016 racing season.

Too much to cover Dave’s drive in the Vintage 24 Hours of LeMans this time around, so we’ll bring that to you soon!

Go to our Episodes page to listen, or subscribe to Vintage Racing Podcast on iTunes. Don’t forget to subscribe to our news posts by going to our web site, then head to the menu at left, and select Entries RSS.

If you haven't been to our web site lately, please come by. Episode 5 was released 9 days ago; Episode 6 with mechanic and vintage race car driver Ethan Shippert was recorded a couple of days ago, and will be uploaded later this week. I've also uploaded some more photos of current shop projects.

If you haven't stopped by our web site lately or listened to a recent podcast, please do. Part 2 with Ethan Shippert was uploaded today, and Dave and I just recorded an episode focusing on planning an engine build, and how he approaches performance street builds vs. race engine builds.

Also just recorded, and to be released in a couple of weeks or so, is a fantastic episode featuring a conversation with Andrew Watry, one of this board's moderators, and an extremely active Bay Area member of the Alfa Romeo community.

See you soon,

Greg Tatarian

Have been listening to the podcasts. Definitely enjoying them. May not have caught the last one... but one "comment". Maybe it's not a comment about the podcast, but more about vintage racing. We're a pretty laid back, and not particularly rich place here in New Mexico. I'd love to see more opportunities to race a vintage car that isn't perfectly period correct, and very expensive. I see the wonderful Alfetta LeMons thread on these boards, but not much for enduro racing. Also, maybe it's just what I see on the Internet? I'm not super serious, but would like to not race with people that are making a total goof out of it. (We've seen some of those cars.)

So here's my plug for racing old cars that may have "wrong parts" out of economic necessity, and whose only pedigree is Craig's List. :-)

Hi Nick,

I think all of the LeMons participants agree with your comments. Not really sure what similar groups there are.

Thanks for listening, Nick.

Best,

Greg

Longtime Berkeley Alfa Romeo owner and enthusiast, and our own Alfa Bulletin Board moderator, Andrew Watry recently joined me for a phone conversation about his lifelong passion for cool cars from England, Germany, and not least, Italy. Andrew founded the Berlina Registry, and leads annual drives for that group. Andrew also shares his experiences with autocross, rallies, and more recently, vintage racing with the CSRG.

New release date: Sunday, March 6, at 0500 Pacific time. Please check it out.
