  • Great techy-but-pragmatic style5star
    May 17, 2022 by BoogieFries from United States

    I’ve listened to a whole bunch of these podcast episodes and I really enjoy Samir’s techy-but-pragmatic conversational style. It’s clear that he is smart but humble and still trying to learn and improve like the rest of us. Subscribe and listen!

  • Podcast 395star
    May 13, 2022 by Peter Greg from United States

    Really enjoyed the info about how to guide drivers into giving the engineers the info that can better help them understand what actually needs to be changed in a set up. Blind verses structured focus was also interesting and relates to my work as an internal tester for a SIM developer. These podcasts are packed with gems of experience you won’t find in most places. Would recommend them highly to anyone looking to save time by further understanding the relationships between driver, engineer, and the car.

  • Excellent and entertaining resource5star
    February 14, 2022 by CPMaverick3 from United States

    This podcast caters towards people with motorsport as a hobby or that are just getting started in the industry. However the guests are typically have a high level of experience. The podcast's goal of getting them to distill and simplify their advice to the basics I find really fascinating. I am a professional in the industry and decided to listen when I saw some of my peers on the pod. Even for experienced motorsport people I think there's a lot to be learned.

  • Great advice5star

    Really great motorsport related content with a wide range of top notch guests from around the industry. Samir’s an excellent host- really easy to listen to. Lets the guests speak and develop ideas over the course of the conversation which is not always the case with other podcasts. Much to be learned here for enthusiasts at all levels.
