Some wild door-to-door action at The Bend has Reynolds in a death-defying mood, so he's taking up a new hobby. Meanwhile the deg debate continues and Caruso reveals that he's off to the Top End for some Bathurst prep.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
There's nothing like a bit of trash talk to get the BTB lads fired up. The barbs were flying thick and fast in Townsville, and, spoiler alert, we all loved it. Meanwhile, Reynolds takes his weirdest (plane) trip ever.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
David Reynolds has a wicked hangover. Caruso and AVL are going stir crazy in lockdown. The perfect recipe for podcast madness. Oh yeah, we also casually put THE BEST PRIZE PACK EVER on the table thanks to our good mates at Ryco.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

We love our fan question shows and in this episode we cover it all from whether reverse grids should make a come back, to relationship advice from Dr Love himself, David Reynolds.

Everyone knows you get the best scoops at the toilet block, right? The boys chat Holden closure, Team Sydney, debrief the Adelaide 500 and generally try and fix the sport (as usual).   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The shrinking violet (cough) that is Tony Cochrane joins to lads to explain his journey from a school drop-out running a lighting business in Adelaide to the godfather of modern Supercars racing. What (and who) forced him out? What would he do to improve the sport right now? And which press conference line does he admit made him look like a goose?   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Greg Murphy. The man who missed a gear and still set the original Lap of the Gods. The undisputed King of Pukekohe. The fierce competitor that made the likes of Skaife and Ambrose sweat. But how does he go in a Mustang convertible in the snow? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out...  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Oh boy. In hindsight, having the Below the Bonnet Christmas party before recording was a bad idea. It did make for some fun banter, though, with the boys chatting about a wide range of topics including water-cooled brakes, Koala anatomy, and Willy and The Juice.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
That's this week's community service announcement from David Reynolds. No worries for our special guest Garth Tander, he can keep the inaugural Co-Drivers Cup trophy forever.
