We caught up with Jacob Olsen recently to discuss his long time friendship with Greg, from their early years of racing against each other between Cradley Heath and Coventry in the UK. They also discussed Jacob's latest plans with his take over of Vojens Speedway Center and living up to being the son of Ole Olsen, the former World Speedway Champion and creator of the Speedway Grand Prix. Very interesting to hear Jacob's views on living under Ole's legacy however this new venture is all about Jacob Olsen this time. Will there be another One Day World Final?? Enjoy and thank you for listening.
Greg has been on the road and in the air this week. It's the Thanksgiving Holiday period in the USA so he takes advantage of being airborne and records the first Reel 45 Podcast from the sky. It's all about being "Thankful" this time of the year as it always is. Enjoy listening and see you next week on the Reel 45 Podcast. Thanks for listening. Grin 2 Win...
Welcome. Greg has a solo Podcast this week talking about the Speedway Silly Season including all contracts, rules and regulations. There is always something new on the line. Thanks for listening. Grin 2 Win!
It's time to catch up. The racing season is over but the Podcast is full steam ahead. Time to stop turning left for awhile. We never know what's coming up or who we are going to meet but we always have something to talk about. Haha, enjoy listening. Grin to Win!
This is a great listen. Marcel Gerhard! The Suisse Longtrack Legend and creator of "GTR" the new generation Twin Cam engine for speedway, Longtrack and Grasstrack tells his inspiring story of growing up in an MX Family. As a young kid, he grew up learning all about building 500cc motorcycle engines and quickly ventured out of Switzerland to join a well know German tuner within the world of Speedway and Longtrack. There he continued learning and gathering valuable experience as well as developing his own career as a Longtrack racer which led to a World Title. In recent years, he has turned his successes into a full time engine tuner with a roster of titles to show for it. He is also on the brink of revolutionising the sport with his new GTR Racing Engine. This podcast is long but well worth hearing. Sit back and enjoy this very informational story. Marcel is a very clever man. Thanks for listening and Grin 2 Win!
Greg takes a recap on the 2019 season together with his long time sponsor NGK SPARK PLUGS UK. The intro here is hacked by the Flying Fajita (#22) and Mac Daddy (#117) as they try to steal the hosting of this episode. It all comes down to respect!
It's been a year since we started the Reel45 Podcast and we are so proud to say that we accomplished it without missing a weekly episode. This is Episode 53! We recap a little on the last 12 months as well as a long discussion on Greg's recent Diamond Cup success. 2018 was the first year of the new Speedway series called "Speedway Diamond Cup"! The Diamond Cup creator Irek Nawrocki from Poland went against the odds and pulled off an amazing 3 round series with the top four riders winning actual Diamonds. It was a great series so Greg tells us all about it and his hopes for the future of it. Enjoy the Diamonds and thanks for listening over the last year. See you next week on the Reel45 Podcast!"

An awesome Episode 52 where we test out our new telephone recording adaption. We decided to try and call a few people including new World Champion Tai Woffinden, Good buddies Matte Rådberg, Gert Hansen and Matt Ford. We had a cool chat with Poole Pirates Boss Matt Ford and team manager Neil "Middlo" Middleditch about their very recent League Championship title. Also did a recap on the overall finishes to the season. Too much fun... Enjoy it! Grin 2 Win.....
Tune in and hear the Torun GP Predictions right from the The Hancock Boys.

Thanks for listening and "Grin 2 Win"!
