You Gotta Have Game
Willy T. Ribbs got caught speeding at 13 years old and he’s been going fast ever since.
From winning on the formula ladder in Europe, to rubbing shoulders with Muhammed Ali, Paul Newman, and tons of famous racing drivers, to being the first Black man to test a F1 car, he has had an amazing career and life.
Listen now to hear Willy’s thoughts on modern single seater racing, fantastic stories of his grandfather, who was a highly influential figure in his life, and much more. We dare you not to be inspired.
And yes, we delve into those immortal Miami GP post-race interviews, including one with some guy you may know as Charles Leclerc, but he will always be Chuck to us.
Remember to rate and review us wherever you’re listening and maybe recommend the pod to a friend too; it would really help us out.
