No matter what your thoughts are on the guy it could be very interesting. I'll be listening shortly.
There are two episodes. One covering his racing with Level 5 and one covering his business life. Both make for quite interesting listening and regardless of what you think of Tucker its a shame that people have had a go at Ryan Eversley and Sean Heckman merely for letting the man share his side of the story.

I was able to listen to them both today, and they were great. Really interesting to hear about the team development, and really wild stuff on the legal side too!

Well, they were certainly going to be at max capacity for factory drivers in 18 so this is understandable, never the less, Wolf has been a fantastic member of the Porsche roster for many a year and I hope to see him running in a competitive seat in 2018.

thanks for the heads up, watched this last night. it does a decent job of explaining what he did, which loopholes he took advantage of, and told his side as well. it's hard to sympathise with him or his wife, and his daughter is brainwashed which is kind of sad but inevitable.

Tucker also comes across poorly in his episode of the 'Dinner with Racers' podcast.

Tried to find a place in the ACO threads for this to fit but couldn't find a good place.

Yeah, watching his daughter have to deal with the cognitive dissonance from all of that is pretty sad. (my dad who loves me and is the person who provides for me and protects me is a bad person or has done bad things - is he a bad person, etc) She will probably find therapy helpful in processing all of this.

Tucker (and his lawyer) definitely come off as pretty unsympathetic characters, as does the one tribe chief I think. You see tucker being upset about someone coming to take his two race cars from inside of his grand mansion, while alternatrively hearing from the people unfortunate enough to have used his 'service.'

i did feel a bit for his wife and daughter, they were another casualty of the morally corrupted "look after number one" attitude that seems to exist in some areas of america that they couldn't understand why the money they were living off was gained in a completely unacceptable way. all they saw was the hard work from scott and the technical legality of the business.

on the other hand, given they were living under a roof paid for by poor working class americans who they'd taken advantage of and rinsed, i have zero sympathy at all.

i agree about the chief too, you'd hope that as an elder he'd see there was a bit more to it, but i can understand why he doesn't really care at the same time.
