episode 734: Ben Collins (The Stig), Justin Bell, and Randy Pobst

It's a racing driver extravaganza! We're in Monterey at the Hypercar Invitational and the pros are here. We talk to Ben Collins (The Stig) about horsepower levels today, supercar performance, motorcycle racing, and the Zenvo's tilting wing. @bencollinsstig 

Then we talk to Justin Bell about how technology makes anyone a hero, why he won't ride right-seat in fast things, why Pikes Peak scares the shi*t out of him (compared to Le Mans), Jonny's hill-climb, and...the Zenvo's wing. @justinbelltv 

Lastly but not least-ly, Randy Pobst tells us about his first time racing Pikes Peak (and the near-miss), his Unplugged Performance Tesla Model S Plaid, what he thinks about British cars, why race cars ruin you for street cars, and more. @randypobst
