ALAN Gow joins us for this week’s episode of the V8 Sleuth Podcast powered by Timken.

The ex-pat Australian has had a long career in motorsport, with Gow serving as the boss of the British Touring Car Championship for much of the past three decades.

Gow opens up about where his love of motorsport began, his time working for Captain Peter Janson, his friendship with Peter Brock and joining Brock’s team at its lowest ebb, and we discuss the current state of the BTCC and the measures it has taken in the name of saving costs while improving the racing.

We then focus on the Super Touring years, including Gow’s take on how it was portrayed during 1997 and 1998 when two Bathurst 1000s were run – one for Super Tourers, the other for V8 Supercars – and his role in James Courtney’s decorated career, along with tackling your National Motor Racing Museum Couch Racer Questions plus our traditional MotorFocus Top 10 Shootout.
