Inside The Sportscar Paddock: Post Spa WEC & IMSA Mid Ohio

Race winners Lynn, Maldonado, Cameron and Hawksworth. Plus Toyota's Rob Leupen and ITSCP regular Jeff Braun

It’s the latest edition of the Inside The Sports Car Paddock interview show and we open with CORE autosport race engineer Jeff Braun explaining the function of third springs in modern racing suspensions before he shares tales of crazy chassis setup changes that yielded unexpected results.

Aston Martin Racing’s Alex Lynn is next following his GTE Pro win at the snowy Spa FIA WEC round.

Acura Team Penske’s Dane Cameron describes his maiden win for the IMSA DPi program at a muddy Mid-Ohio.

DragonSpeed’s Pastor Maldonado takes over to detail his LMP2 win at Spa and the prospects of a return to the WEC in 2019/20.

AIM Vasser Sullivan’s Jack Hawksworth does the same after securing the team’s first IMSA GT Daytona victory with his Lexus RCF GT3.

We close with Toyota Gazoo Racing team director Rob Leupen on the brand’s Manufacturers’ championship, plus the mounting frustration on the lack of direction for the 2020 Hypercar formula.
