Podcast 001 | Winning Le Mans with Race Engineer Kyle Wilson-Clarke

In our first episode we have Kyle Wilson-Clarke with us. He is a Le Mans winning Race Engineer who worked with Audi and Porsche on their LMP1 programs between 2013 and 2017 and now works for Porsche Formula E. We covered his early life & journey into motorsport before getting into some great technical conversations of his experience of engineering in the Le Mans 24h race and working with the race winning Audi R18 e-tron and Porsche 919 platforms. This was a really enjoyable and inspiring conversation with one of our sports most accomplished trackside engineers, so we hope you enjoy it just as much as we did. More podcasts are on the way, so stay close!
