Show Notes

In this episode The Fast Pod brings you a motorsport world champion.

Tom Harris has firmly established himself as one of the leading lights in stock car racing. 

After making the early switch from a fledgling motocross career to short circuit racing, he has proven to be one of the fastest drivers in the category. 

Tom has won nearly every championship possible in cars he has designed, constructed, prepared and raced. 

After securing titles in the UK and Europe, including the ultimate accolade of winning the World Final, Tom is now racing against the world’s best short oval competitors in the US. 

As well as speaking to Tom, GC and JD discuss: 

  • MotoGP's run of bad crashes and injuries 
  • lucky escapes in rallying 
  • hidden gem race circuits 
  • the rebirth of a legendary car in the US 
  • and recent controversial instances of bending the rules in some of motorsport's biggest events. 

They also touch on bad family planning and why that stops you from enjoying motorsport. And yes a baby cries in the background at one point, which we deliberately left in as it totally underlines the point.
