Inside Supercars -Show 387 - The Departed

There are occasions when working on a special program for Inside Supercars that not every piece of the puzzle falls into place, and the interviews never see the light of day. This week, we have two of those such interviews. In December 2020, we were looking to do a special on how supercars were able to run the series through the height of the COVID 19 pandemic. We completed 2 of the proposed 5 interviews, before the Christmas break and in the new year the other requested guests were unavailable and without these parts of the puzzle, the show was unable to proceed. Moving forward to 2021, and now into 2022 the two interviews have become somewhat of a time capsule because both of the people have left or are about to leave Supercars. Today we hear from John Casey and Nathan Prendergast.
