The Edge is a series of conversations with extraordinary people operating at the edge of possibility.
It’s about the thin line between taking part and tipping into victory; it’s about what gives us our edge and what we can do to go beyond it.
Our guest is Alexander Rossi, who made his presence known in the motorsport scene in 2016 by claiming victory in the 100th running of the Indy 500 as a rookie. As the anticipation builds for the 2023 edition of this legendary race, we had the privilege of catching up with Alexander. Join us as he takes us back to that unforgettable moment, reliving the thrills of his first Indy 500, his surprising fuel strategy that helped him win, the post-race celebrations, and the profound impact it had on his career.
Our guest is Douglas Boles, the trailblazing president of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). The Speedway has played host to the Indy 500 for over a century. The race sits alongside Le Mans and the Monaco Grand Prix as part of the prestigious Triple Crown. Douglas talks to us about the innovative technologies that are going to propel the Speedway forward, how motorsport can attract a younger audience, and the deep connection between this iconic institution and its beloved community.
This time, our guest is a man of many talents. Roberto Lacorte is a racing driver, sailor, and entrepreneur. Whether he’s behind the wheel of a race car or at the helm of a sailing boat, Roberto is constantly pushing himself, and his team, to the very edge of possibility.
