The Insiders – 2012 – Episode 7 AKA #90
This special episode of the “Insiders Report” features the Spirit of Daytona Grand Am Team. We speak to them at their shop in Daytona FL after their win at Barber.
This fast paced, opinionated news show format will primarily cover sports car, Rally and open wheel racing in the US and Canada and will follow several Pro series such as Grand Am, ALMS, World Challenge, Rally Car, Indycar and Trans Am. But the show will also shed light on what is going on with amateur, entry level Pro and grassroots series like SCCA and NASA club racing, Star Mazda Championship, F2000 Championship and Canadian Touring Car.
The shows aim is to fill the void left in the Sports car grassroots racing community with the cancellation of the Internet show “Shifting Gears”.
“Fans of GoRacingTV have asked us since we started the site if we planned on bringing Sifting Gears back alive on our site. It seemed to be a widely popular show and although I’m not sure of the reason for it’s demise, I think there is a need for a show that pays attention to what is going on in the amateur, entry level Pro and grassroots racing world. We hope to fill the void” Said Errol Tucker Sr. the show’s Executive Producer.
The show will have four hosts who are not shy about stating their opinions and thoughts. Hosts are:
