Description

A look into the lives of professional Indycar drivers, reality television stars, and great friends James Hinchcliffe and Alexander Rossi. Though Hinch and Rossi have seen plenty of success on the track, the show is meant to highlight their off-the-track lives, including their unfiltered opinions on what’s trending in popular culture, with each episode featuring a number of recurring, unscripted segments and an interview with a celebrity guest. Off Track is at heart a sports show, but Hinch and Rossi are well-versed in popular culture and have experience relating to influential figures across a variety of disciplines. The interviews consist of athletes, artists, and entrepreneurs -- really anyone with a passion for what they do, regardless of what that is. This is the first original production from CastBox.

Sorry for the long delay in episodes, we had a thing at the place, you understand. Besides some technical issues from James and Alex, we're back! And, as we're wont to do, we talk about peeing WAY too much. We also catch up on everything that has happened in the IndyCar world in our absence, but the episode is way more about peeing than it should be. What do you think about the troughs going away at IMS? Thim promises to teach the guys how to use microphones by the next episode.+++Follow us on Twitter at @askofftrack.

Hinch and Rossi are in the same place, because -well- they're kind of roommates at the moment. The guys talk about one of the most controversial topics of our time, breakfast food. Then, after a long break, we have a grinds my gears again, and shocker, it's about twitter... again.

The guys are back! Hinch has lost his mic again (he suspects foul play). After Pocono and St. Louis, it's easy to see why the guys might not be feeling too lucky. They talk about where they both are in the season, and what they're looking forward to. Then, they wrap up the episode with their opinions on the news of Andrew Luck's retirement, and the blow back from the fans.+++Follow us on Twitter at @askofftrack.

Nice gear, cool mics, and the best software can all -sometimes- fail. So, this episode is brought to you by our back-up recording equipment. The guys talk about where they are in the season, then James talks about this biggest news facing him at this point in the year. Not the McLaren news, his wedding. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
James and Alex (er... Alexander) talk about unsolicited twitter advice, and how they deal with criticism online. Next up, Alex sat down with Olympic Figure Skater, Adam Rippon, before his two-seater ride to start the Toronto Grand Prix. To wrap the episode up, Alex and James talk about where they are in the season after Iowa, what they expect from Mid-Ohio and the rest of the races, and James' upcoming wedding.+++Follow us on Twitter at @askofftrack.

The guys are all together again! They talk about where they are in the season, then welcome the very special guest, Robert Wickens. They talk about Robbie's return to a racetrack, before Alex and Thim definitively win the argument about the absurdity of Canadian money (in a non-controversial way). Then James and Robbie talk about the importance of the Toronto race to them.+++Follow us on Twitter at @askofftrack.

Rossi's enjoying a well earned break, but Hinch and Thim recap Road America, and talk about where the season stands, now. Then, author (and brother of Hinch), Christopher Hinchcliffe joins the show to talk about the application of rules in F1, and dives in a discussion about what the role of the stewards should be, and how rules should be applied. We dive into the weeds a bit on this one, so we hope the real racing fans will enjoy it!+++Follow us on Twitter at @askofftrack.

This was an excellent episode and it left me highly optimistic about all three of you. I listen largely because I am an fan of the Mayor and I am like almost everyone else and want to see him back in the car full time. That said James you are as much a natural behind the mic as behind the wheel. It appears as if you really enjoy the job which is a big positive. Still you belong in the car. I really think that Alex showed more of himself in this episode that in any previous one. I heard an understanding and honest acceptance of the situation. IMO this is the right base for a solid remainder of the season. Alex you are just as talented now as before and so is the team, so by standing on a solid base the group of you are going to leap forward and earn the result you expect and deserve. Thim maybe has the hardest job. You are trying to stay positive and find your own happiness all the while being a single parent and working to put as much joy as you can into your daughter's life. Glamping or Camping, it doesn't matter. What does is that you are doing the job. Thanks for an excellent episode and I look forward to the next. In the meantime stay safe in the hotbed of Covid.

The moderately informative episode was as described. The Texas race was certainly not as exciting as in the past and I thought it was entirely due to having the NASCAR compound on the track but learned that there was much more to it. Great to hear about the windscreen as well. Most interesting to me was the description of the differences in the pandemic approaches between the states. This is especially important when viewing the strength of the wave in Texas vs Indiana. I just hope that our heros and all of Indycar remain very cautious so that we can count on having ongoing races for the rest of the year.

IMO, it is a brave man who attempts to teach their partner anything at all and especially how to (race) drive. That's why this particular episode is one of the best ever, hearing a small likely understated version of what transpired leading up to the Better half event.. I think that the ladies had to overcome unbelievable barriers to pull this off, which shows not only that they are good sports but also that they can perform under pressure. Very well done.

Could have enjoyed the episode more with some drink samples of my own. I'm sure a cold Sleeman Honey Brown is just not the same. Good to see Thim involved,

So, I just listened to the season opener episode. It's Mar 20 and I trust that you all buy into the science of the pandemic and it's severity. At the time you recorded the episode many people thought like you did, were confused and unwilling to accept things as some were stating. Not at all helped by your pres. who continues to confound and confuse. I have seen James's plea for blood which is excellent. I wish there was more we could each do to help. Let's all do what we can and hope for the best.

Hey Hinch....heard the news today about the SPAM team driver line-up. Not surprised, as I don't believe you wanted to be there. Honda is your bread and butter, and you have certainly made them a great representative and spokesman. I hope what I believe is true and that you will be announced as the third can in RLL Racing. I refuse to believe that you won't be in the upcoming season in a top-notch ride. Seriously, all of the best racing luck to you in the world my friend.

After the season is over and you have fun at Bathurst, it would be great if you had some Indycar crew folks on the podcast so we could get their perspective of life Off Track.

As for Bathurst. You likely know but iRacing.com has both the track and Supercars modelled and both are a blast. Highly recommended .

As for Pocono, it was Sato's fault, end of story. I would love to see the cars back there and the solution is to institute a first lap yellow at turn 2. Back in the day, I witnessed Patrick Carpentier win the CART race at Laguna and it was spectacular, although passing was at a minimum. I hope you both have great good fortune there in 19.

Great episode but as one of the 10,000 I am very concerned that Timothy let Al and Jimmy get away without talking about their real highschool nicknames. That could have been fun. To all exhibit great skill at Mid O and to Reba and Jimmy and all their friends have a great wedding day and may you continue to find joy in your union.

Happy to have a Canadian episode, eh. Also happy that both boys finished well at what was a very tough race in Toronto. As a native I would like to see the circuit paved and smoothed out but it might take away from the unique nature of the race. I have a question for a future episode. Can you describe how driver styles differ? Presumable everyone knows the racing line and so on so how do top drivers' styles differ? It has to be do to different braking techniques? Would love to know.
