Does the tried and tested Yaris his brother, Lewis Bates is running give him an upper hand? Plus, 2014 Champion Scott Pedder is back, former Supercars driver Alex Rullo now has a year of this level of rallying under his belt, and although we couldn’t catch up with her it’s great that our first ever podcast guest Molly Taylor is back in a Subaru.

Jack Perkins - Part 1

We’re on the road for this latest feature episode in a workshop on the outskirts of Melbourne with Supercars driver and broadcaster Jack Perkins.  Jack opens up about the deep-rooted passion for motorsport that runs in his family, tracing back to his grandfather's competitive spirit and involvement in motorsport before and after WWII. He shares heartwarming stories of growing up, visiting the family farm in Cowangie, and why harvest time holds a special place in his heart. The episode takes a nostalgic turn as Jack reminisces about his father, Larry Perkins', thrilling yet perilous days in Formula 1 during the legendary 1970s. It's a candid look into a time when the sport was fraught with danger, but also filled with undeniable excitement and innovation. But perhaps most touching is Jack's story of how he, as a young boy, persistently badgered his father for a Go Kart—a request that would eventually see a third-generation Perkins take the competitive motorsport stage. Dive into the world of racing legacy, family bonds, and the undying love for motorsport in this compelling episode of Rusty's Garage with Jack Perkins.

Max Wilson - Part 1

You spoke. And we listened. We’ve tracked down Max Wilson at home in Brazil to find out what he's up to these days.  From how Brazilian F1 legends like Piquet and Senna inspired him as a youngster, to the moment a birthday present set him on a path that would see him race all round the world and the serious roll call of South American competitors he came up against like Kanaan, Zonta and Castroneves that helped shape his readiness for Europe. Wilson discusses the opportunity in a few sliding doors moments like Michael Schumacher’s former manager Willi Weber helping him into a ride, Christian Danner offering words of wisdom about mastering those wild DTM cars and turning down a drive with Porsche to focus on Formula One. Plus, a love of fitness (Martial Arts especially) and how Mike Tyson’s approach to preparation really resonated with him.   Head to Rusty's Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and give us your feedback and let us know what you want to hear about in future Motorsport Brief episodes with Rusty.

We chat the move into Touring Cars with his West Surrey Racing team at the height of an arms race in the 2-litre Super Touring era. Remember that? The late Murray Walker lent his iconic commentary to the coverage for some years and so many big name manufacturers were involved spending telephone number sized budgets to try and win! Then there’s the BMW’s they now run in the BTCC and the work required around its hybrid program. Dick is adamant about working with drivers to properly understand their feedback and how that ‘feel’ is still incredibly important in finding ways to fine tune the race car, not just relying on the data.

Greg Siddle - Part 2

We got permission from Pee Wee’s media manager Mark Larkham to tell this story so we twisted Larko’s arm and made it a two parter! And there is plenty in it, including why Greg is like a father figure to Larko and how he taught him to take the emotion out of the big decisions. Plus, inspiring Sam Michael to chase the F1 dream after he impressed during his time working for Pee Wee and Larko in the Formula Holden program. Why he gave Eddie Jordan a bit of a ‘tune-up’ when Sam got crook while working for Jordan F1 in the UK. And the great friendship the trio have to this day. There’s also fascinating yarns on working with Niki Lauda to come and race in Australia, the advice he gave Mark Webber and helping to establish a successful Formula Ford chassis distributorship in Australia. The accounts department at one major sponsor jokingly called him Mr Reverse Cashflow, but Pee Wee worked seriously hard to stitch together a massive deal that took Aussies like the Great Peter Brock, Larry Perkins and more to Le Mans in a Porsche!

Gabriele Tarquini - Part 1

Rusty was a massive fan of the British Touring Car Championship in the 90’s (he’s still got the VHS tapes) so when he arrived at Bathurst recently and saw Gabriele there, he had to chat with him. A star in karts, he had no real intention of going car racing! Some practice laps in an open wheeler changed that and Gabriele went all the way to Formula 1. Sadly the F1 cars he raced weren’t great for showcasing his talent but in a Touring Car he was something else. His little known meeting with the legendary Enzo Ferrari, memories of that iconic Alfa Romeo 155 in the BTCC & much more.  Head to Rusty's Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and give us your feedback and let us know what you want to hear about in future Rusty's Garage episodes.

In the lead-up to the Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island we have none other than the The voice of MotoGP.

You’ll be spellbound by the stories of working with the all-time greats in a career that takes in both a golden era of 500cc racing and almost two decades of the new 4 stroke chapter, now producing some of the most competitive racing we’ve seen. And he opens up on the difficulties of ‘rolling off the throttle’ when he stopped commentating on motorcycle racing’s premier class.  Rusty really should have done this pod ages ago, in the Island Media Centre after Nick hosted one of his countless Press Conferences in unmistakable Harris style. But, the time is now for you to enjoy tales from almost 50 years working around the sport. From phoning through reports and telexes to the the call he took about Eddie Lawson joining the Honda team that Wayne Gardner never knew about!
