Parc Ferme, Episode 3 with Alexander Rossi and John Hindhaugh

Episode 3 of Parc Ferme is something of a bumper edition – anything to celebrate what is one of the busiest month of the year in motorsport.

In this episode, I’ll be chatting with World Series by Renault driver Alexander Rossi as he prepares for the sixth round of the Championship at the Hungaroring.

Rossi, who won the opening race at Spain’s Motorland Aragon Circuit, currently resides 6th in the series, trailing title leader Robert Wickens by fifty-nine points.
The Californian native possesses a history of success in single seaters, having claimed the Formula BMW USA title in 2008, and then following that up by winning the Formula BMW World Series later that year.
Stints in International Formula Master and GP3 saw Rossi take numerous victories in both categories.

For information on the series and the races, check out the World Series by Renault website and remember that the races are free to attend when apply via the World Series website.
Should you not be able to make it, the races will also be broadcast live by Eurosport and British Eurosport.  Meanwhile, you can follow Alexander Rossi on Twitter.

Also on the show is the legend of Radio Le Mans, John Hindhaugh.
Having only just returned from the Nurburgring following the Nordschleife 24 Hours, John was kind enough to spare a bit of time to talk about Le Mans, the Nurburgring and this weekend’s ILMS race at Imola.

Not content with the occasionally lacking TV coverage for some endurance races, John and the Radio Le Mans crew work tirelessly to at least bring radio coverage of endurance racing at every opportunity, while also presenting the fabulous Midweek Motorist every Wednesday evening at 8pm from the Radio Le Mans website.

For more on Radio Le Mans, just visit the website, or visit the Midweek Motorsport chaps on Twitter.

Lastly, big thanks to Emma Buxton and Eve Hewitt for helping to arrange the guests for the show.
The first two episodes (broadcast last month) with Harry Tincknell and Pippa Mann can be found here and here.

  1. Good stuff Leigh. Hopefully you are able to bump up the audio volume as it is a bit quiet at the moment?

    I’m very excited by the ILMC becoming the FIA World Endurance Championship next season, it is about time too! I hope it’ll attract even more manufacturers and top independent teams (and more funding for current ones).
    Nurburgring 24 was an interesting one to follow, sadly I had to be out in the morning so I missed the conclusion live. Perhaps I’ll go back and listen if I get time.
    I like the idea of running F1 tests the day after a GP, and maybe other series should adopt it too. I think MotoGP already does it sometimes.

    Hi Leigh,

    Enjoyed listening to the podcast.
    Good interviews with nice guests.

    ust 1 point of critisism: the sound quality is not very good.
    Hope you can improve that for your next podcasts.

    No need to improve on your knowledge of motorsport.
    You know what you are talking about. 😉

      Cheers Rethymno,
      I’m working on a way to sort out interview quality for future episodes, but at the minute it often comes down to the quality of phone line.
      That was the unfortunate thing about chatting to Alexander – the were a few drop outs on the line, which was a bit annoying.

      Glad you enjoyed the podcast anyway.
