Marshal Radio: Episode 2 The Roar Before the 24 Debrief with Guest John Gamble talking IMSA, NASCAR & Watkins Glen

Exciting new episode now live… with a guest!


Marshal Radio – The Roar Before the 24 at Daytona International Speedway

Summary:

John Gamble and I worked the Roar Before the 24 at Daytona International Speedway, where he was my corner captain and took a load of pictures of me in pit lane while we tried to chase down the new Mazda DPi prototypes.

We really enjoyed watching the Cadillac DPi machines, all the new GT machinery including the Mercedes-AMG SLS, mid-engine Porsche 911 RSR, Acura NSX, Lexus IS-F, etc.

Besides Daytona we talked a lot about Watkins Glen International since this is where we first met and where we worked together for many years now.

John and his wife Jeree are not just Motorsport volunteers but big Racing fans as well. They travel a lot to follow the NASCAR racing series and many of it’s famous drivers.

I thoroughly enjoyed having this chat with John and hope I could do more in the future!

Post Card from Daytona 24h, Debut of TUSC at the home of NASCAR

The opening event of the 2014 season was a bit of a let down. I was surrounded by friends but it felt pretty lonely, nothing seemed to go my way and by the last shift I’ve just about had it and was ultimately booted off my station. Learned quite a lot about myself, though I’m not at all proud of any of it. But life goes on and hopefully this season will be as good or better than the previous ones.

I think this is only a few photos taken of me during the event… which just goes to show how out of it I was the entire time. The highlight though was flagging at turn 3 (which was not my turn) that is depicted in this picture.

Hoping for better luck next time.
