But for the thousands of fans out there that just want to see cool cars at the best race tracks, it can get confusing. That’s why Dusty invited Marshall Pruett on to hash out the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of today’s GT classes. We’re talking GTE, GT3, and GT4 on this episode of the Slipstream Podcast.

Dusty Michael

As a mechanical engineer, Dusty’s passion is for sports cars and endurance racing. In his opinion, there’s nothing better than a race car closely based on a model that you can go out and buy from the manufacturer showroom. He’s very particular about his writing utensils and appreciates a great, cruelty free pomade.
