Episode Info:

Join us as Flip Jacobsen tells the story of the one and only Bernard Charles Ecclestone. For such a little man in stature, the shadow cast on Formula 1 by Bernie Ecclestone is immense. Love him or hate him (with many more being in the second camp), his influence on Formula 1 is unparalleled and it is not an exaggeration to say that, without him, we would have a very different sport (if it still existed at all). His was the vision that took Formula 1, once the domain of men covered in grease and oil, caring little about anything other than racing, into the global limelight, transforming a mostly European operation into a broadcasting behemoth covering the whole globe. This show tells the story of Bernie's start years in the motorsport world. From selling a motorcycle to a young Jack Surtees, to racing in Formula 2, to becoming the political figurehead of the sport. We have it here.
