I'm lines here enemy of the island this year with Derek bell. And we're just sitting around and missing about the old days at road America. I'm Derek can you. Shed some quieter maybe you remember heels bonds story. A while -- America. Well I went there quite a long. I couldn't be active single season's that I didn't get reform looked like thousands like him a few races. But I remember one of the first times that witnessed David hopes his driver to calling back label can act. The kind of race that I'll play. And it somehow Kevin site with a guy that. The Indy 500 with the rain Dolphins did in their. So he couldn't. Do the it our race that I felt like orchestrates that he wants me to stand in the drug called back later. I'm not post allegedly can achieve our guy knows the second time I didn't. Another one fullback. Which is it Milton and they excuse like that keep it a 1000001. And he feels very nice little come full locomotion back PP but that was that mid Ohio so I went to drive it's become a proper salute and they. That's what of the talk. Of the tree McLaren pool Laura Davies with David well coordinated. I've met unfortunate because I hadn't qualified or having had stopped on the back to rich. And you know to take that sort of car out of a place like Elkhart lake when you. You know the track but you definitely. It's a little less power. I mean the others and we've got a hundred miles bridge in New York City out and take a begun I've no idea where I finished up short to do very well. That was my first six inexperience. With a really stupid because Elkhart lake. We pools and Houston. Them and on struggles tonight and get nice excuse. Me jump emirates team and then it cools. Prior to that without all the articles saying that Europe so I had lots of great experience I think we wound. I know we won the 500 ones. Al and I did you know cause. Lake and then I joke with JB Holmes in the BMW North America. It was a 322. Of those fly and and we didn't expect to win it is such a policy track and I remember the product that's memory was driving a little Kolb and suddenly so you really. But it was simple thought we never thought it was picked up. You know to have the legs on it took to blow it available straights but it's a good round but there. So that was quite the experience of me. One quick question I'll Wear you faster than they have an ops guy always gets me out okay because you know Davis and there. Probably give us another side of the story. No. I have to say I am. I didn't I was on David was have of the driver net com and let you know I support them I think pretty well and got in all honesty. And I never looked at times it would be good I mean I Devin you don't know what's a guy has done. Jenkins throughout students. Is that it's like hundred miles. So it is to us that we thought he did three stints rule between us. And you don't study and the purity in the pluses and minuses on the house behind. Because his stuff that we relative might get rained the night. You know you have old sponsors and the you need to freshen up. So I never I mean I've often which is something crops there he did some pretty quick laps though I might have noted it would've loved. Walt. I mean we gave it was the first one to the have a problem worse for us had to but David. I did use their life and perhaps it was very special out of that area around Milwaukee in these sort of have some of the drug you guys have a that it went you'll look for it helped me. Yes oh definitely I mean you use of Princeton yet thanks thanks body I appreciate it but. It's great to see you here mom has always you know. Accomplished so much and in the world of sports car racing. What what what you think. Of college changed now. When you're looking back at when you won. You know at the mall. A bunch of different things like they tend to put things. I have to say. I'm not. I'd I'd go I can really say is that I think. Arsenal's. You know me you know my teammates who need great teammates I've had lots of those -- that this team drivers. You need to have the best car the best teammates and you're going to do extremely well but you make a mistake which we didn't do very often. John why would say I do hate to crash. And so you have to keep the road he was a great. A guy in line for me to tomorrow what's around the golf mirage is subject imported some on the minds of teams that. He shouldn't told me at certain disciplined. And I think you know what we had was the most incredible nearest sports car racing which I don't think gonna that he matched. Because you can't go out by those phenomenal counts and make the greatest thing that hole that era Weathers in America. Whether it's in the world championship. The rest the world. Well you could Portia would sell it Porsche 962. An incentive from you know whatever the prize of 350000. Dollars whatever it was B I don't know every ball they can. Whoever you like that I own them they could then go out our drivers. And there are a lot of us out of the capable of driving. Moscow spouse. And you know you do you could do well from moderately low amounts of money. Now it's got a little caution. And descending two courses out there in the races. Designed to actually exits out there. There aren't sitting out is that moment person in the world championship. And there will be any more than those two of these brands because nobody can afford to buy them and run and think of the budgets sort of hundreds of millions a year now I budgets move public. In real tight might have been a millionaire at the end of the day. But you can't competitors and we had great racing that pat wants to do it 1015 portions of team them all and over when we started the daytime it would be. Ten or twelve ninths sixty twos out there or I used out boring see sixteen horses go around. There were lots about the house to the unit projectors and then that would that sense it's really coaches. And and and other stuff as well hole capable of winning is just that you could buy a portion and you knew you were gonna finish the zone well. And you know they provided that sort of food comes from which you could go apply now days you come. There's only two top couple talk constitute in two different teams to anybody else is DiLeo rough behind them. And I think that's you know at this retrograde step and sports town it's very excited to get all while hybrid look at the Pirates got. Acceleration and eleventh cool thing was to go to that she's an eagle four in the race. Are great point. Did you were you able to drive a 919. I know there was talk about you getting in and driving. I'm I haven't actually it's never that he still talk about it do they talked about it you know last year so principal. Maybe next time I might have the chance to get it. I mean they keep saying I should have kinda thing you know. I like I could a decent drive on its not complicated I you don't have to fiddle with switches they just say like. You know about weather cities are there it would distribute you know eight under ovals I don't know if you got. And isolate already for the experience driving not mean I student council a thousand miles an appeal on the found recently. That has 902000. Rules and he was magnificent in the costs unbelievable to drive. And it's not electronic horsepower. Light and I'm not night it's controls. From the pit step because yeah burn the tires are strike me dead act when you drove you had to use your foot I think. George Ballmer always says it. Dead my foot was my traction control. It really wants and I mean I've you know I two putted very much would you leave the beautiful lumber up forces since. And a photograph nonetheless. But I mean you come out of reportedly had 800 holes. Of course the car was pretty. Read it through today and he threw a ground effects the red come out it would be bouncing as George says it's a virtual who's who came out trying to get the minimum amount of Winston. So we're trying to get the straits is like now the formative. And the two things aren't easy to do. Derrick it was really good seed winner and it was as always you're always gracious and pleasurable. Thanks that he went into the ice. Additional problem I'll see late I'll send it to just yeah yeah.
