Behind the Autocross – Brian Mason
Well – the summer is coming to a close, the event scheduling is filling back up again, and SEMA is just around the corner. Since that’s the case we decided to sneak in one more “Behind the Wheel” episode of the podcast, but this time it’s “Behind the Autocross Design” instead with Brian Mason!
Brian is the man behind the design of the autocross and speed stops at every OSUSC event. As you’ll hear in this interview he has a pretty diverse history in everything he’s done and, just like for a lot of us, autocross was his entry into competitive driving. If you’ve ever wanted to learn why OSUSC autocrosses are designed like they are, and maybe why they’re NOT like others you may have done, all questions will be answered in this one for you! It’s a combination of art, experience, and science.
We think you’ll enjoy this interview with Brian, and you can friend him on Facebook here as well.
