MY RIDE IN THE 2 SEATER INDY CAR WITH MARIO ANDRETTI

MARIO SITTINGDRIVER SUIT2 SEATER INDYPOST RIDE PIC

 

Hello again Racing Ears,

Welcome to Episode 50 of The Racing Ear Podcast.  This is a very special edition and I am so proud and happy to share with all of you my experience being driven in the Indy Car 2 Seater by The Great Mario Andretti.  I was able to ask him some questions and also ask him for advice before my brilliant ride with him.

Thank you again for your continued support.

The Racing Ear.

  1. Hi Trent! What a wonderful podcast. I only had time to listen to the first 11 minutes but plan on listening to the rest a little while later. How wonderful that you got to do this and that you have the way to share it.

  2. Yeah, I did that too. Davy Hamilton was driving. Cool, but not NEARLY as impressive, or terrifying as riding on the back of a GP race bike at Sonoma Raceway. But there wasn’t a second seat. I had to sit on the faring. There were no second set of foot pegs. And they sent us out during a regular practice session, with other bikes on the track. Frankly, while the rider was doing wheelies on the front straight, I considered cutting my losses and plain letting go. I’ll ride in the two seat Indycar a dozen times. But the GP race bike? I’m out.

    Riding with Mario must have really been something. Very special!

    Why don’t you ask Sonoma Raceway to hook you up with the GP race bike ride along? There aren’t too many takers…..or maybe even none!

    I’m an idiot.

    1. Well Done for having enough cajones to take that on. I will not ride on a motorcycle period. I grew up with a bloke that did that and he was a lunatic. He became a AMA road racing rider.
