If Matt would keep his elitist, political, and hypocritical views out of a car show it would be much better.

What can I say other than I love this show. It's about cars but it's a show like you and your friends sitting around talking about cars. It has all the parts of life sprinkled in. It's entertainment. It's people having conversations not following a script. Keep up the good work Matt and Zach.

Really good sports car oriented podcast that is consistently entertaining and funny.

Besides Farah consistently laughing at his own bad jokes, the Valley girl "Like"s and his interrupting of segments (to find noises that aren't being broadcasted). It is really good.

Dai Yoshihara's Crazy Origin Story
01:23:09

Dai Yoshihara is a  professional driver who has competed in Formula D,  Time Attack, Road Racing, and Hill Climb. And it all started with a motorcycle. Sort of. 


 

On this episode we find out how Dai got his start in driving, drifting, and the unlikely meeting that led to his first drift event and ultimately, his career. Dai walks us through his car history; the differences between road racing and drifting; why he loves the Pikes Peak Hill Climb; his AE86 builds; and the one race car he would own if he could.

 

Some of his most notable  moments: he won the Formula D championship in 2011, 3rd place in the 25  Hours of Thunderhill, 1st overall in the 2019 Global Time Attack Super  Lap Battle,  and took 1st place in the Unlimited class  (and 9th  overall) at the  Pikes Peak International Hill Climb of 2020. He's also  been a drift judge, a precision driver,  co-hosted a show on Hagerty  along with our own Zack Klapman, and has been the face of many brands.

02:03:25

Ash Thorp @ashthorp is a digital artist, illustrator and designer. Among many accolades, he did the visual design of the Batmobile for the 2022 film, "The Batman".

But he's more than that. Ash started with nothing and never got a fine art degree, be has used an eclectic mix of technology and creative thought to become a highly successful and respected member of the art community.

On the automotive side, Ash has owned over 20 cars, including an AE86, S2000, EF hatch, and a Raptor, among others.

On this show we talk about how it all started; how he got the Batmobile job; his car history; what NFTs are really about; his next project car; the worst commute in the world; how you can harness a creative mind; and a whole lot more. We didn't know where this show would lead but we're very happy with the result.

Randy Lanier: How a Weed Smuggler Raced in the INDY500
01:05:33

Randy Thomas Lanier is a man with some seriously incredible stories. He is a professional race car driver and convicted drug trafficker from the United States. Yes, you read that correctly. Two endeavors that grew together to heights few have experienced. 
 

He is best known for his racing efforts in the mid-1980s, including winning the 1984 IMSA Camel GT title for the wholly independent Blue Thunder Racing team, placing 9th in the 1986 INDY 500, and becoming the Rookie of the Year at that same race. In 1988, Randy was arrested for marijuana smuggling and sentenced to life in prison without parole under the Continuing Criminal Enterprise statute (also known as the "Super Drug Kingpin" law). 
 

We talk to Randy about his late start in racing; how he ascended through the ranks so quickly; beating Porsche; a factory ride offer; how it came crashing down; and how he found purpose and happiness.

Emelia Hartford: Corvette records; Ferrari NOS; and giving back
01:33:07

Emelia Hartford might be the hardest worker in the automotive media game. She set a drag record in her turbocharged C8 Corvette, blew up a Mustang engine that's taller than a house, widened a Ferrari, started a charity foundation, and somehow finds time to move her acting career forward. We cover that, her Crown Vic racing, where her drive comes from, what she'll do with her Z06, and a lot more.

Gordon Murray
01:24:05

How did Gordon Murray get his tenacious hunger of design and problem solving? How did he come to design the legendary McLaren F1? What does his new car, the T.50, do that other supercars don't? And what are those strange contraptions he built out of a boiler and a food truck? All that and a lot more will be answered in this amazing episode.
 

If there were a hall of fame for cars, Gordon Murray would be near the top, seated at the table of bosses next to people like Colin Chapman and Dan Gurney. He was the lead designer and engineer behind the McLaren F1, which came after he had a very successful career as a technical director in F1 for Brabham and McLaren. For some, those credits would be enough to hang their legacy on but as you'll soon hear Gordon is not like other people. His new venture, GMA (Gordon Murray Automotive), has debuted two cars that lit the supercar world on fire because their intent is not to deliver the quickest, fastest, or most powerful ride on Earth, but the best to drive. Gordon's focus has always been about weight reduction and driver feedback, and as will become clear in this show, his focus is sharper than ever. https://gordonmurrayautomotive.com/ \

Becoming a Car Designer: From Italy to OEMs to Crazy One-off Projects
01:28:31

This show was full of interesting insights into the life and business of a designer. Oil Stain Lab @oilstainlab is a vehicle design company founded by brothers Iliya and Nikita Bridan. They work with brands and individuals alike who want to build something truly unique. Sometimes it's a lifted Alfa Romeo, others it's a custom Porsche inspired by Can-Am madness. Whatever they put their minds, pens, and hands on, the vehicles tend to get attention.  

We talk to Nikita about how they got started, studying in Italy, Art Center in Pasadena, the good and bad working for OEMs, the rational explanation for why concept cars look insane, opening their own business, building an unexpectedly popular fake-vintage Can-Am car, working on the HOONIGAN Porsche, and a ton more.

Beau Boeckmann: Supply Chains, Mach-E Updates, Porsche contest
01:26:22

Recorded from Porsche Santa Clarita with our favorite car dealership king, Beau Boeckmann! @beauboeckmann

We talk about why the Mach-E update takes so long (science!); the BMW door lock solution; Porsche Santa Clarita's entry for the Porsche Classic Restoration Challenge (and why Beau doesn't care about winning), why having a Porsche 962 in your basement is scary; Matt's weird auction interest, the dealership inventory situation, supply chain ups and downs, and why people shouldn't buy grey cars.

How to Win a Hillclimb: Rhys Millen & Joey Seely, James Robinson
01:26:04

Part 2 of PPIHC is another double-header! First: Rhys Millen and Joey Seely explain their secrets to being fast, the 1300HP 911 they're campaigning, and a bit of Rhys' history at the mountain. Plus, Rhys' weird tire secret. 

Then, we hop in an MDX with Acura's lead factory driver, James Robinson, who gives us a turn-by-turn tour of the mountain. He points out specific challenges, turns, driving lines, and talks about the event in general, how he started, and his NSX. 

Rhys Millen is one of the best drivers on Earth. He holds trophies from Formula D, and Global Rally Cross. He set his first Pikes Peak record in 1997 in a Toyota Supra. He was King of the Mountain (overall winner) in 2012 and 2015, set the EV record in 2016, and set the SUV record in 2018. He's also won at Baja, knows how to setup a car, and as we find out, has a weird secret with tires. 

Joey Seely was a co-founder of BBI Autosport. 6 years ago he struck out on his own to open Emotion Engineering. Initially, he focused on chassis/suspension setup. He was the lead engineer for Jeff Zwart's PPIHC efforts several times, including with the ultra-rare 935. But as former racing engineer, Joey knew he could go bigger. Over time he's developed his own parts, brake pads, and engine builds, all culminating in this incredible Pikes Peak effort with Rhys Millen.

Pikes Peak 2022: Jonny Lieberman, Jeff Zwart, David Donahue & Robb Holland
01:29:47

Pikes Peak 2022 Pt.1: First, we stand at Glen Cove and talk about the cars we've seen, weather, altitude, and what the hill climb means to us. Then we go to Devil's Playground to speak to 3 pro drivers -and Motor Trend figurehead Jonny Lieberman- where we cover topics like: 

How does one learn this crazy mountain road? How is it different from the Nurburgring? 

What do you mean there's a car? 

How is Robb's first experience racing a 2022 Porsche GT4 RS on the mountain? 

When is sun bad? 

What's Jonny trying to improve on? 

How is David Donahue's 2021 Porsche GT2 RS ClubSport handling the altitude? 

How does this compare to road racing? 

How do you measure power at bottom vs the top? 

How do gears get longer over time? All that a whole lot more!

What's it like going around Laguna Seca in the $4M 1000HP street-legal race-ready Aston Martin Valkyrie?! INSANE. 

We're talking all things Hypercar Invitational. Which cars were there? How fast were they driven? What's it like to ride with The Stig? How much slower (or faster) is the Cadillac CT5-V than a hypercar? Plus, Matt rode in the Aston Martin Valkyrie, a car so fast it changed a man's mind. We talk about what it is, road car vs race car, why it exists, and what time it ran at Laguna. Also, 7-figure 1/2 mile drags, expensive garages, weird shoes, and Q&A.

It's a racing driver extravaganza! We're in Monterey at the Hypercar Invitational and the pros are here. We talk to Ben Collins (The Stig) about horsepower levels today, supercar performance, motorcycle racing, and the Zenvo's tilting wing. @bencollinsstig 

Then we talk to Justin Bell about how technology makes anyone a hero, why he won't ride right-seat in fast things, why Pikes Peak scares the shi*t out of him (compared to Le Mans), Jonny's hill-climb, and...the Zenvo's wing. @justinbelltv 

Lastly but not least-ly, Randy Pobst tells us about his first time racing Pikes Peak (and the near-miss), his Unplugged Performance Tesla Model S Plaid, what he thinks about British cars, why race cars ruin you for street cars, and more. @randypobst

01:12:42

Nick and Giles English are the founders of Bremont watches and serious gear heads. They love all things mechanical, especially planes and motorcycles, but they've also had a number of adventures in vintage cars. They even had had a hand in Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman's motorcycle circumnavigations "Long Way Round" and "Long Way Down".  

We talk about why they started Bremont, what it's like working with and learning from the Williams F1 team, crushing watches, working with Ian Callum, their new hangout, Bike Shed Moto Co, and nearly crashing a plane.

Behold, The Autopians! (Jason Torchinsky, David Tracy, Beau Boeckmann)
01:43:27

Jason Torchinsky and David Tracy are two of the most entertaining writers to ever work at Jalopnik. Jason has a knowledge of obscure cars (and other machinery) that rivals Google. David - a trained engineer- loves buying run-down 4x4s, located many hundreds of miles from his house, and trying to drive them home, usually unsuccessfully. They've just announced their departure from Jalopnik to start a new website (alongside Beau Boeckmann, owner of Galpin Ford and bona-fide car nerd), The Autopian! 
 

On this show we talk about why they left Jalopnik, Beau being involved in a record-setting car crash, strange old car seats, obscure sedans, and what the Autopian will be all about.

Reggie Watts (comedian, musician, actor)
02:10:03

Reggie Watts is one of the most impressive performers we've ever seen. He's a stand up comedian that uses small instruments, beatboxing, and improv in a way that boggles the mind and deserves standing ovations. He loops his own voice, layering it to create beats and melodies that lead to hilarious punchlines. "Unique" is an understatement. It's hard to describe what he does (check him out on YouTube or watch his new Netflix special, "Spatial"). You can also see him as the band leader on "The Late Late Show". @reggiewatts

Reggie is also into cars. He has a deep appreciation for mechanical integration, engineering, and technology. On this episode we talk about his early cars, what he likes about new tech, his EV interests, a hyper owl, car stereos, head phones, and more.  

From his site: "Reggie Watts is an internationally renowned vocal artist/ beatboxer/ musician/ comedian who wows audiences with his live performances which are 100% improvised. Using his formidable voice, looping pedals, and his vast imagination, Reggie blends and blurs the lines between music and comedy.

Jesse Iwuji (NASCAR driver, NAVY officer, entrepreneur)
01:28:42

Jesse Iwuji is one of those people that is as impressive as he is likable and he is very impressive indeed. While on leave from serving in the NAVY he went to a track day, fell in love with the driving, and decided to become a race car driver. He has done just that, working his way up through late model stocks cars to the Xfinity series. He dailies an R32 GT-R and a C7 Corvette, drifts a C6 Corvette, owns a few businesses, and just created a racing team alongside an NFL legend.


 

A story like his is far from common in the world of auto racing. You won't regret listening.


 

From his website:

"Jesse went from competing at the top level of Division-1A college football to rising the ranks of the military as a Lieutenant Commander, and is now the only current driver in all of NASCAR at the national levels that actively serves his country as a US Military member. Today he is one of two African Americans competing at NASCARs national level of racing."

This was a fun show that went all over the place! Jarod DeAnda is basically the voice of Formula Drift. He's been an announcer for the series for nearly 20 years, and has an enthusiasm for the sport that comes through in his voice and his demeanor. We wanted to hear how he got his start but we also heard about: his philosophy behind work; the wardrobe rules of Enterprise car rental; his crazy truck crash while moving from AZ to CA; the new wave of golf; his favorite country to visit; when he and Matt first met; his couch; ADD diagnoses; his second car; and a lot, lot, lot more.

Grab a coffee and strap in for a fun one.

Lotus' Big Wigs: Russell Carr, Gavan Kershaw, and Matt Windle!
01:41:55

These are some of the big brains that decide what a Lotus car should look like, feel like, and what the company should do next.   

Russell Carr has been working for Lotus since 1990 and was appointed head of design in 2014. His work can be seen in the Lotus Esprit facelift, Europa S, Evora, and upcoming Evija.  

Gavan Kershaw has been the Director of Attributes and Product Integrity since 2017. He sets the targets, benchmarks and evaluation sign-off on everything to do with the performance of Lotus cars. He's never worked anywhere else, so to say he cares about the brand would be an understatement.  

Matt Windle served as the Executive Director of Engineering until January of 2021 when he was named the Managing Director of Lotus Cars.

Kyle Tucker (CEO of Detroit Speed)
00:57:33

How do you make older cars turn, stop, handle, or have good steering feel? Luckily we have Kyle Tucker of Detroit Speed to explain it all. He talks about his time working for GM, testing the C5 prototype fresh out of college, how he started his own company, what they did differently, and why their cars perform with the best. It was a great discussion about modifying, thinking, engineering, and testing. Detroit speed makes subframes, sway bars, control arms, axles, springs, and more. It's hard to put into words how good their cars are, so you'll just have to watch one of Matt's One Takes to get his word.

3-time Formula Drift champion, Chris Forsberg @chrisforsberg64 , has expanded his team to include some up-and-comers: 

Alex Jagger is competing in Formula Drift Pro Spec, the tier just below FD Pro. He's won multiple Rally America National Championship stages and began drifting in 2014. @jagger277

John Temerian is the CEO of a vintage exotic car dealership has the life story to back it up. He runs Curated, a Miami-based dealership that buys and sells investment quality “blue chip” cars.

Announcement
00:01:25

We’ve been making this podcast for 10 years thanks to listeners like you. Since the beginning, many people have asked us to get rid of the ads, or leave the live streams up a little longer, or get more content. Well now we have a solution for you! (Don't worry, the show will still be available for free)

 By becoming a patron you can watch the live stream, ad-free episodes, get access to the shows long before the general public, or even get a special once-a-month crew show that is only for our Patrons. And it all starts at just $3 a month. 

Read about the tiers below or hit the link to see a thorough description.  Join our Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/thesmokingtirepodcast 

 

Here’s how it works

TIER 1: You’re on our Pit Crew! 

 Want to watch the podcast live stream? This is how you do it. The day before the show, we will share the link to the live broadcast with the community and you’ll get a notification when it goes live, so make sure you keep your notifications on. 

 

Tier 2: Crew Chief 

The Crew Chief is one of the most valuable members on a race team so we’re giving you a lot of value. Tier 2 patrons not only get to watch the live broadcast, they also get ad-free episodes from this day forward. When we publish the episode for the general public, you’ll receive a notification that ad-free versions have been posted right here on Patreon. What if you want to listen on the go? During a commute? We got you covered. Our patron-only RSS feed contains ad-free versions of episodes (starting with episode 650) and our entire back catalog. That's all our content in one single subscription. 

 

Tier 3: Pro Driver 

Let’s be honest, drivers get the best perks. Drivers get everything the other tiers get PLUS: Early access to episodes - Missed the live broadcast? No problem. The moment we end the live stream we publish it for you to enjoy on your schedule. No more waiting a week or two for it to be published. And, we will record 1-hour crew show, airing once a month, that's only available to Pro Drivers. We'll dive deeper on the cars we've driven AND answer your questions.

Tory Belleci (Motor Mythbusters, Mythbusters)
01:10:16

Tory Belleci is a host of Motor Trend's new show, "Motor Mythbusters". On the show, Tory -along with Faye Hadley and Bisi Ezrioha - will investigate, debunk, or prove all the automotive myths, legends, hearsay, and stunts, using real science. He was also a host on the original "Mythbusters", which ran for an incredible 12 seasons.

And what are those weird shields for? Plus BMW grills, used car fairness, Corvette vs Ford, and a lot more.

Remembering Chef Carl Ruiz
01:25:04

Our good friend Chef Carl Ruiz of The Food Network, La Cubana NYC Restaurant, the Opie Radio Podcast and countless other ventures, suddenly passed away over the weekend. While we are all reeling from his death, I want to take the opportunity to celebrate Carl's amazing appearance on our other show, Watch & Listen. This episode focuses on Carl's general philosophy on watches, which I later titled, "Carl Ruins Everything." And it's the best primer on watches for someone who loves, or who hates watches. 

This episode is available as a video - get it at: https://youtu.be/VZcrVQtHbXE
