A special treat on this episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast Follow Up Show Fueled By Elf Marc VDS Racing. Ex-MotoGP racer and current BT Sport specialist Michael Laverty joins Neil Morrison, Adam Wheeler, and David Emmett to discuss the Moto2 and Moto3 action from Mugello.
Obviously, the main topic of conversation is the tragic death of Jason Dupasquier, killed at the end of Q2 for the Moto3 class, and Michael gives his unique perspective on the tragedy, from the point of view of a racer. Michael gives an honest and open insight into the mind of a racer, and how your view of danger changes over time. We naturally talk about the perils of racing, and what can and can't be avoided.
We also discuss the events of the races. We examine how Remy Gardner beat Raul Fernandez in the Moto2 race, we discuss Sam Lowes, who is riding faster than ever but keeps making mistakes. We discuss the Moto3 race as well, and then Michael Laverty talks about his Vision Track British Mini Bike Academy, his initiative to try to get more British youngsters into the Grand Prix paddock.
