Our Thoughts

We cannot wait to get the opportunity to sit down and watch this. It has an interesting premise and looking at the teams for Season 2 this year, we want to know more.  Carlos Sainz, Tanner Foust  and Sebastien Loeb are highlight drivers for this year with big motorsport names like Mclaren, Andretti Autosport and United Autosports competing.   This is gonna be interesting.

We have not watched the sport so we are going to tackle it with fresh eyes.  We will be tackling the show in a few weeks.
