“Today’s episode co-incides with the 80th birthday of that great American racing driver, Dan Gurney. Accordingly, we will be welcoming Dan, a 4-time F1 winner, onto the show live from the headquarters of All-American Racers in Santa Ana, California, mainly to say “Happy Birthday” but also to talk about machinery like the 1967 Eagle-Weslake – a car generally considered by F1 enthusiasts world-wide to be the most beautiful of all time – and Dan’s amazing racing life. We’ll also be looking back at the Malaysian Grand Prix and ahead to the UBS Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai with two other special guests – Sergio Rinland, the ex-Williams, ex-Sauber engineer who also worked for Dan Gurney, and Rob Wilson, the world’s leading driver coach.”

The Flying Lap – EP13 – Qantas Australian Grand Prix Debrief

In a break from the tradition of posting only original content here on BPR F1, I plan on syndicating the weekly episodes of The Flying Lap with Peter Windsor  from Smibs.tv.  You’ll remember host Peter Windsor from his days at the SPEED network as well as his being the voice behind F1’s press conferences throughout much of the 2000’s.  Needless to say, Windsor’s pedigree speaks for itself, and the content he provides on The Flying Lap is truly unparalleled.  Windsor routinely gets the best Formula 1 analysts on the show, resulting in a breadth and depth of on-air F1 discussion that can’t be found anywhere else.  I am quite confident that BPR F1’s readers will find The Flying Lap a worthy addition to this site’s regularly-running content.

“The Australian Grand Prix had no shortage of topics that were looked into. The Flying Lap was pleased to have F1 tech analyst from the blog ScarbsF1, Craig Scarborough, as the in-studio guest. Craig has appeared before and is a wealth of knowledge in all things technical.”

Guests:

Craig Scarborough – Scarbs F1 Blog

Dominic Harlow – Force India, Chief Race & Test Engineer

Martin Whitmarsh – McLaren Team Principal (Pre-recorded Interview)

Pastor Maldonado – Williams driver (Pre-recorded Interview)
