The Top Split – Episode #009 – Benny Simonsen

This month I was fortunate enough to speak with professional racing driver Benny Simonsen.  Benny was generous enough to share some of his experiences and insights into the comparisons between sim racing and racing in real life.  He also gave some great impressions of his times racing some of the fantastic cars we race on the iRacing service in real life.

The Top Split – Episode #008 – Johnny Guindi

I had the great pleasure of speaking with Johnny Guindi, a young up and coming driver on the real racing tracks around the world as well as in iRacing.  Johnny is a Nissan GT Academy winner and he shares his experiences from the show as well as those on the track during the program and from the 24 hour race in Dubai.  It was an exciting opportunity for me to speak with him about how real life racing compares to what we get on the iRacing service.

If you’d like to get in touch with Johnny for some Sim Racing Coaching, you can reach him at – johnnygh94@gmail.com.  Alternatively, you can join him live on the skippy discord server where he does live track guides.

The Top Split – Episode #007 – The Panel

In this episode of the podcast I speak with Dennis Fiedler and Desmond Harberger in the first ever attempt at ‘The Panel’.  We are just three blokes talking some stuff about iRacing as we see it.  Nothing like getting some information from the grass roots.

The Top Split – Episode #006 – Tyson Meier

This episode I speak with Tyson Meier aka ‘Quirk’ an iRacing Twitch streamer.

I very much enjoyed having Tyson on the show.  He was open and honest in our conversation.  I’m a regular viewer of his stream and can thoroughly recommend it.  He streams regularly and it’s a great watch.

The Top Split – Episode #005 – Bernie Wiemers

In this episode I was finally able to talk to the man behind RRtv, Bernie Wiemers.  Bernie has been on my list to have on the show since there was a list, so it was great to finally have him on the show.

Bernie and I spoke about what is involved in broadcast streaming iRacing.  All the tools of the trade and some of the thinking and work that goes on behind the scenes.  It’s a great starting point if you are thinking about doing some broadcasting or indeed just getting involved in your local iRacing community more broadly.
