Revved up with Waldorf - Ian Lewis, Author of 'Gothick' Featured

Monday, Aug 02 312

The best authors are able to transport you to a world of their own creation, where you believe, if only for a moment, that you are actually in that space.

Since the first season of Speedway Digest Thursday Night Thunder, we have had the opportunity to work with Waldorf Publishing to get to know some of their authors, many of whom have a passion not only for the written word, but for speed!     

My former co-host Mykkal Mulalley-Kapalo and myself have been grateful to the teams and racers that we have spoken with on the program, and during this unparalleled pandemic, we hope to provide you, our readers, listeners, and fans, a little snippet into some of the people who help make this the greatest sport in the world.

Today, we are pleased to highlight Ian Lewis.


What was your first car? A Morris Minor. I can’t believe how tiny it was.

What do you drive now? A Skoda Yeti. It’s fun.

What is your dream car that you wish to own? I’m very happy with what I have, for now; but the forthcoming all-electric Skoda Enyaq iV is very appealing (apart from the name).

Do you see yourself ever buying a battery operated car? Yes (see above). But it has to have a real-world range of at least 200 miles.

If you went on a road trip, what book would you bring?  Guide books for the areas I’m travelling in or through. And Dickens’s “Bleak House” to re-read.

What do you think about Elon Musk and his advances in technology?  I think he’s an inspiration, but I’m not sold on his sky-clutter satellites.

Adam has been a race fan since the first time he went through the tunnel under the Daytona International Speedway more than 30 years ago. He has had the privilege of traveling to races all across the state of Florida (as well as one race in Ohio), watching nearly everything with a motor compete for fame and glory, as well as participating in various racing schools to get the feel of what racecar drivers go through every week.  

Adam spent several years covering motorsports for Examiner.com., where he had the opportunity to see the racing world from behind the scenes as well as the grandstands. He invites everyone to follow him on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus, and looks forward to sharing his enthusiasm for all things racing with the readers of SpeedwayDigest.com.

Be sure to tune in for his sports talk program, Thursday Night Thunder, where he discusses the latest in motorsports news with drivers, crew members, and fans. The show takes place (almost) every Thursday at 8:00 pm EST on the Speedway Digest Radio Network.
