Podcast: The Engine Room Show – Episode 72

This week, Humphreys, Moore and Cooper sit down with Mayo racing driver Sean Hynes to talk a little bit about driving single seater race cars here in Ireland.


The lads sit down with upcoming racing star, and UCD Mechanical Engineering student, Sean Hynes in order to have a little chat about the Become a Racing Driver competition out in Mondello, among other things.

Sean won the Become a Racing Driver competition back in 2011, which saw him securing a spot on the podium for the following race season where he finished 6th overall, which is pretty damn good for a driver’s first season, in fairness.

Unfortunately, a 2013 season didn’t quite work out for Sean due to a number of factors, not to mention the budget runs well into €15,000 for a season, but he’s looking to get back into it this year.

So if you know someone who has deep pockets and likes their motor racing then make sure to point them towards Sean over on Twitter!
