We are an amateur endurance auto racing team. We hope to show everyone that they too can participate in performance driving. We are a relatively new team and learning right along with you. Our assumption is that you know very little to nothing about the sport but are interested in learning to drive better and eventually maybe even race in a local event of interest. We will cover all forms of racing and hope to be entertaining as well as educational.
 
The Ten Tenths Podcast is hosted by Adam Nielsen and Robbie Vierhout. This podcast is intended to be a public forum where these petrolheads with vastly differing automotive preference discuss their racing experiences, shame each other for poor automotive choices and generally have fun while talking about cars.
