Welcome to our first Short Shift, a mini-podcast of sorts! The ladies are at Foxwoods (errrr, Mohegan Sun? Do they even know where they are?) testing out the high-speed gas powered karts at Monza Karting in Connecticut.
Listen for a quick review of the track , thoughts on crowding, getting bumped, and how good it feels to pass someone.
In this episode of Shifting Points, the ladies chat with Chang Ho Kim, owner of FunHondas in Maynard, MA. Chang Ho Kim also happens to be a fantastic instructor, tire expert, autocrosser, rallycrosser, ice racer, and hyper-miler. Don’t worry. It will all make sense.
In this episode:
What’s a safety run?
SCCA Solo Nationals.
Why instructors are awesome and you should use them.
In this Episode Kathy and Audra talk with Amanda Moore, Autocrosser, Archer and track junkie. Kathy and Amanda give us a review of Evolution Performance Driving School and we learn a whole lot about brakes!
We also learned a lot about recording in a bar, how we should pack batteries in our podcast kit, and some other stuff. But that’s a podcast for a different day.
MaeLynn Filteau joins Kathy and Audra to talk about her experiences planning car club events such as runs and rallies (spoiler alert: Always say thank you to the event organizers!). But before she talks about what really goes into planning a car club event, she talks about her love of all things Mini (and MINI).
Kimsoo is a 15-year old who has been doing karting with SCCA as long as we have been doing autocross. There are many things we could say, but Kimsoo says everything better than we ever could, so we’ll just let her take the wheel for this episode.
Today we sit down with the Guenthners – Bob, and his son Dylan.
Bob is a funny guy and a fantastic autocrosser, but it’s 12-year old Dylan who steals this week’s show. We were super impressed with Dylan, who competes at indoor/outdoor karting and shares his experiences as he sits down with us behind a massive spread of trophies in front of him.
In this episode:
League karting for kids and adults
Yes, Bob really autocrossed with a Camaro and a Dodge Magnum
