Guests: Andreas Bakkerud (00:00), John Naderi (15:01), Sylvain Tremblay (28:49), Mattias Ekstrom Reprise (41:49) Content: We break new ground on Tech House & Speed this week. We go to Norway to talk with a rallycross champion who continued his winning with chilling form. We hear some analysis on what it'll take to be the next King of the Hill at Pikes Peak. We find out how diesel power is breaking new ground in Grand-Am. And we revisit a conversation with a DTM champion who's testing the water in rallycross and finding the waters warm. Conversation you'll only get on Tech House & Speed. In Segment One we talk with two-time Super1600 European Rallycross Champion Andreas Bakkerud who won his first Supercar round last weekend in Sweden. Bakkerud is often called Mr. Baby Blue because of the baby blue cars he raced in the Super1600 FWD category. But what was the chilling news he broke on Tech House & Speed that might change his Baby Blue image? In Segment Two we talk with MotoIQ Editor-in-Chief John Naderi who has great analysis on what it'll take to beat Sebastien Loeb's King of the Hill charge up Pikes Peak. Will it be a prototype? An F1 car? A hybrid? An electric car? Or another rally car? Naderi and Tech House & Speed break new ground in the post hill climb analysis. You'll find some new interests in this conversation. In Segment Three we talk with Sylvain Tremblay, Speedsource, who started the Grand-Am season with engine problems. But those Mazda6 diesel powerplants have been massaged so heavily they've turned in four consecutive wins in Rolex GX competition including last weekend at Watkins Glen. How'd he turn a struggling program into a winning program? We get the latest. Finally in Segment Four we talk with Mattias Ekstrom, a two-time DTM champion and three-time Race of Champions winner who's spent the last two weekends flexing his muscles in rallycross
