Tracks are mostly closed. Racecars are quiet. Drivers are finding time in simulators. But what is going on with so many motorsport teams out there? We wanted to know, and we figured you would, too.
We pulled together four motorsport veterans—Bill Auberlen, Michael Essa, Michael Hurczyn, and Will Turner—for a virtual motorsport panel held on April 23. We had great time hearing what they’ve been doing during this racing hiatus and then sharing countless stories from their years of racing, building, owning and enjoying all things racing!
We targeted an hour but ended up enjoying 75 minutes of fun with them! Bill—the winningest driver in American Sports Car history—had this to say about it: “That LIQUI MOLY virtual motorsport panel was a lot of fun. We definitely miss getting out on the track and seeing our racing friends and family. Talking racing and stories with such a great group of guys and engaging with the LIQUI MOLY community was fantastic.”
Michael Hurcyzn, Brand Director for FCP Euro but also driver of the No. 71 FCP Euro Motorsports GTI TCR car and 2019 Driver Champion, added, “Being on a panel with a great group of guys who happen to have a bunch of championships under the belts was inspiring and humbling. Whart a nice trip down memory lane that I think fans will enjoy.”
Will Turner, owner of Turner Motorsport, shared fantastic stories covering his history in racing and Michael Essa, 2013 Formula D Champion, enlightened everyone on the nuances of drift racing—and then invited Bill to come learn how to drift!
