MP 514: Inside The Sports Car Paddock, April 8, with Jeff Braun, Greg Gill, Richard Dean, and Roman Rusinov
It's the 12th installment of the Inside The Sports Car Paddock interview show and we open with our traditional segment featuring CORE autosport race engineer Jeff Braun, who details his path from karting to becoming a race engineer, then explains the chassis setup considerations for dealing with traffic during this weekend's 100-minute IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race at Long Beach, and how to tune a car to reach its performance peak at the end of a stint.
Next up is Blancpain World Challenge GT America CEO Greg Gill who shares insights on sending its GT4 cars to represent the series for the first time at Long Beach, and we close with a pair of ELMS-related interviews captured by Graham Goodwin, starting with United Autosports team principal Richard Dean, and Roman Rusinov, whose G-Drive team has rebranded its ORECA chassis in honor of the Russian limousine manufacturer that supplies president Vladimir Putin.
