Lime Rock Park, the motorsports and entertainment destination nestled among the hills of Northwest Connecticut, has launched the new podcast Driven With Skip Barber, at the website www.drivenwithskipbarber.com. In the podcast, Lime Rock Park President Skip Barber (pictured) will bring audiences an insider’s view of the motorsports world.
“Our goal is to give racing and automotive fans an opportunity to hear many of the stories that are told around the track, providing them with a rare, behind-the-scenes look at this fast-paced world,” Barber said.
In the podcast, Barber will speak with drivers and team owners, car enthusiasts, celebrities, and friends in the automotive space. The first episode is now available and features Barber speaking with comedian Adam Carolla.
“Adam was a clear choice to launch our first podcast,” Barber said. “Not only is he a celebrity, he’s one of the top podcasters and a documentary filmmaker who directed ‘Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman,’ among others.”
In the podcast, Barber and Carolla discuss the racing career of Newman, who frequently raced at Lime Rock Park, along with the possibility of Carolla racing at Lime Rock’s upcoming Memorial Day Classic featuring Trans Am. Carolla, who owns more cars raced by Newman than anyone else in the world, raced in a 2017 Trans Am event.
Upcoming Driven With Skip Barber podcasts will feature RACER contributor and podcaster Marshall Pruett as well as IMSA President Scott Atherton. Listen to the podcasts at www.drivenwithskipbarber.com.
