The car of tomorrow in motorsports may very well be an electric one, and the success of the F-E Grand Prix around the world is proof. NBC Motorsports Analyst Calvin Fish has seen it first hand, and come away impressed with the performance and the fan friendly nature of the sport. But will it hold? Will fans enjoy motorsports without that sound and those speeds? Cal also takes a deeper dive into the final stages of the IMSA Weathertech Championship for 2022, in many ways a mirror image of what happened in 2021. Renee Brinkerhoff didn’t start her motorsports carrer until her mid 50’s, and has wasted no time making history. Taking an older Porsche and turning into something out of science fiction, she has conquered every continent, her final one the frozen and unforgiving tundra of Antarctica. But there was more to her foray across the icy landscape than just proving it could be done. Her end goal is to raise awareness around the world about the insidious crime of child trafficking, putting her own life on the line in bringing this issue to the fore using motorsports as her vehicle. One thing difficult to teach young athletes of any kind is the lesson of “NO EXCUSES”. In the Porsche Carrera Cup, where every car is identical, drivers such as Riley DIckinson learn this the hard way, in competition. We go 1 on 1 with this Rising Star, eager to learn his craft, destined to be a force to be reckoned with, and fully aware the pressure on him to perform and succeed without making any excuses. The Relapsing Polychondritis Foundation has made incredible strides bringing awareness to their effort, to learn more about and to find a cure for RP. Motorsports and IMSA are at the core of their drive, and it takes people such as Jon Morley to make it stick. One of the most respected coaches in the business, still behind the wheel of his Race for RP car, an original Ambassador for the RP Foundation who knows intimately the stories behind what motivates the effort, delivering major strides in the fight against this autoimmune disease.
