In this episode, our guest is James Marcellana of Jzilla Track Days (http://jzillatrackdays.com). We chat about how his track days got started, what makes them a little different, and how best to enjoy them.
Plus, WRC Monte Carlo, horse racing rally style, and Meghann and Jim go over a press release from Mazda Racing about how Mazda treats their Rolex 24 drivers before, during, and after their stints in a race car. Some of it sounds a little bit weird.

We get into fuel technology with Ian Lehn of Boostane. Jim attempts a short overview of fuel refinery and engine inner workings. Luckily, we're friends with someone who actually understands all that stuff. Ian talks about Boostane, trends at SEMA, and vehicle automation.
