Ep.89 – Tommy Byrne

Tommy Byrne was considered the greatest Formula One driver you never heard of. Fast but with a fiery temperament, Tommy is a classic example of someone who showed remarkable potential in junior categories, but between opportunities, luck, and arguably perception and reputation, the path to fame and fortune didn’t quite work out. Racing against some of the greats like Ayrton Senna, Thierry Boutsen, etc. he’s a proven talent, but instead of World Championships he has some of the craziest stories of sex, drugs, and racing you might hear. Of course there’s more to the story in his book, which you can read at www.crashorbyrne.com. Dinner was served at Rossellini’s Restaurant & Lounge in Daytona Beach, Florida, with the music of Swim taking us out. Thanks to Continental Tire for all of their support, and Acura for providing a great MDX.
