If you follow racing in any way, you know the name of Marshall Pruett, who has covered motorsport as a journalist for years. Now he’s expanded his YouTube channel with great racing and vintage tech videos, and it’s the best way to unwind this weekend.
Some of the videos are a little more modern but feature vintage cars, like the ones Pruett filmed at the vintage endurance racing show that took place over IndyCar Grand Prix weekend in Long Beach:
McLaren F1 CEO Zak Brown took to the track driving a 1989 Jaguar XJR, and Pruett has exclusive footage of a GoPro on board. It’s a fascinating look inside a decades-old racing machine and shows just how much technology has changed.
If turquoise is more your color, then you might enjoy Pat Long’s ride in a prototype Porsche 962 sponsored by one of motorsport’s biggest disasters, Leyton House:
Or if you’re feeling a little nostalgic for the good old days broadcast, you’ve got it too. Dave Despain and David Hobbs host the one-hour recap of 1991 12 Hours of Sebring, and the video is amazing. The race was won by a Nissan GTP, and you’ll also get a ton of interviews with the winners of different classes:
If modern tech videos are more your style, Pruett will walk you through contemporary IndyCar concerns, like the PJ1 at Texas Motor Speedway or installation structure to Meyer Shank Racing.
I’m also a huge fan of old IndyCar interview clips, which are some of the very things that got me interested in IndyCar in the first place. This great clip from James Hinchcliffe bursts into an interview with Will Power is just one of those videos.
There’s no shortage of rad coming from Pruett’s channel, and the best way to get more is to subscribe and show you’re interested in what he’s working on. I know I am.
