CAMcast: SUPER DOUBLE BONUS EPISODES

by Michael Chandler

Hello everyone, and welcome to this special SUPER BONUS DOUBLE EPISODE!  We have two great interviews for you today, and the first one is with up and coming Global Time Attack driver Jamie Moreno!  She sat down with Mike and Dave, got on the tangent train, but still managed to talk about how she got into GTA, climbing up the HPDE ladder in NASA Utah, sponsors, and being a lady in the modern world of racing.  She also talks news, and agrees to be the hot shoe in our Panther platform racer.

SPEAKING OF THAT, we’ve got a contest for you!  You can win yourself a The Racing Chica hat and shirt if you come up with a name for our new team!  We’re driving a Crown Vic, and it’s Mike, Dave, and Jamie.  Use that information, or freestyle it.  Best name gets the gear!

Follow Jamie on her social media, check out her blog, and buy some gear and help her out!

Part two of our Super Double Bonus Episode features someone who has climbed the mountain, and is making a living turning wheels.  When you think of a racing driver, you probably think of the robots in F1, or the NASCAR drivers who thank every sponsor when they get asked any question.  Well, Ryan is a driver unlike those guys.  He’s just like any of us, except he happens to get paid to drive one of the RealTime Racing Acura NSX GT3s in Pirelli World Challenge.  He sat with me for an hour, which I didn’t expect, and we talked about his podcast (Dinner With Racers), the Bad Boy of Sportscar PR, kei vans, friendship, and how Spencer Pumpelly maybe killed a guy.  

We also talked about his charitable efforts, most notably him raising money for Neurofibromitosis research and awareness.  He does the Cupid’s Undie Run to raise money for it, and you should kick him a few bucks.  He’s a great follow on social media, which is also a great place to see when and where you can donate!

The CAMcast Comes to Lyfe with Cole and Vinny

by Michael Chandler

We went on a field trip!  Sort of!  Gavin and Mike loaded up the gear, and conquered the sim room at Lyfe Motorsport so they could have a chat with a couple of people you may have heard of: Cole Powelson and Vincent Meyer!  The foursome cover quite a few topics, including

  • Vince’s transition from Time Trial driver to racing door to door in Spec Z
  • Favorite events
  • Home roads
  • Poor teenage decisions
  • Their obsession with Mike Kresser’s Z

Thank you guys for listening to this episode!  We’ve seen you spreading the word, and that is awesome!  Keep it up!  As always, find us on iTunes and Google Play, leave us comments and reviews.  Those help us be seen by more people, which is always a good thing.   You can stream the episode above, download it here, or subscribe via RSS.  We’ll be back next week from an as of yet undetermined location!

We Had Friends at Road Atlanta for GTA

by Michael Chandler

And I’ll be damned if they didn’t do well.  Cole, in the Sydney GTR’s first event on American soil, went out and ran a 1:21.258 which got him second place in the Unlimited AWD class.

Vincent Meyer NASA Utah Round 1 NASA Utah Michael Chandler CAMautoMag-1

And Vincent Meyer was along for his first GTA event.  He was in the Unlimited AWD class as well, and clocked a best time of 1:32.961. Not bad for his first time out!

Christopher Stone NASA Utah Round 1 NASA Utah Michael Chandler CAMautoMag-1

Christopher Stone went in out in the pink accented Spec Z for Unlimited RWD, and pulled out a 1:38.115.  Considering he was in a car built to a very specific rule book for sprint racing, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he didn’t finish at the top of the heap against cars built to lay down one flying lap.

 

Lap Battle HPDE3-5

And in Street AWD was a blast from the past: Sally McNulty!  She turned a 1:37.823 and took home third place!

We’re super stoked for our friends, that they’re out there doing awesome things like running in GTA, World Time Attack, Pike’s Peak, Battery Tender Mazda MX-5 Cup, Super Trofeo, Formula D, World Challenge, and some other series that I know I’m forgetting.  We’re lucky to have such awesome friends, and we hope they keep having success.

It’s happening on April 10 at the Maverick Center.  We’ll be there, perhaps we’ll be bringing a car again.  You should go, because it’s one of the best meets happening in Utah.
