Feature Interview:

The FM3 Story: Part 1

Since we’re in between events we decided to do a quick show with the news you need to know….as well as a look behind how Rob and Jimi met, and why there’s an OSUSC podcast at all. We assumed we could knock it out in just a few minutes….but we couldn’t.

Enjoy Part 1 of the story here, but realize that this story may have us as a part of it it’s actually the story of the OPTIMA Invitational, FM3, and hundreds of the worlds best drivers becoming a giant family. We’ll be back later this month with Part 2.
