Auto News, Subaru ST209, Brembo Red, Hyundai, Car Reviews | #389
At the recent Motor Press Guild Drive Day event, they held a benefit for a journalist that was hit by a drunk driver. This reminds us how important it is to spread awareness about drinking and driving, and now texting and driving as well! Do NOT drink or text and drive, it isn't just your life on the line. First up, JoshCAR Hollywood Car Consultant, Josh Hancock, shares his anti-drunk driving sentiments with Alan, and then reviews the Ford Explorer ST that he drove recently. We also talk about up-and-coming Netflix car shows like Hyperdrive, and Kevin Hart's wreck. Then, Automotive Journalist, BJ Killeen, re-reviews the Hyundai Kona after getting to drive it in an urban environment - yep, this thing is still impressively equipped for $28,000. Also, Hyundai has decided to pack more value into their cars with a center console airbag, designed to keep front seat passengers and drivers from bonking heads in the event of a side impact collision. Next up, Motorsports Journalist for Autoweek, Automobile Magazine, and Grassroots Motorsports, Steven Cole Smith, gets pumped up for his upcoming Dodge Charger Widebody test drive and reviews the Subaru ST209. Then, we get a motorsports update on the world of IndyCar and NASCAR. Closing out the show, President and CEO of Brembo North America, Dan Sandberg, tells us about his podcast, Brembo Red, where he chats with industry experts and celebrities about their lives and experiences - with the occasional Brembo plug. When you work for the best brake company in the world, it's tough not to try to work it into the conversation; but what makes Brembo the best? Well, tune in to find out why everyone from prolific manufacturers to cutting edge Formula E racers trust Brembo to stop their cars on a dime.
