Hey folks, I’m Andre Harrison. Currently, I’m a 26 year old, aspiring journalist and bookmaker (to pay those bills). You may also have know me as “Harrison101”, from my days on YouTube as a gaming “Let’s Player” specialising in the F1 and MotoGP gaming series, as well as journalistic style show “Dre TV”, and Downforce Radio from hit biking show "Bike Live", from August 2014-November 2016.  

In January of 2016, I decided to move on from the gaming aspect of what I do, and decided to commit to the “Motorsport101 Podcast”, 100%. This was due to the congested nature of the F1 space on YouTube, and I felt like it wasn’t the best fit for what my real strengths are.

And I’m incredibly fortunate to be doing this with a team of really passionate and intelligent friends and fellow fans. We believe that Motorsport is a "Fresh take on the world of Motorsport", something we feel has become a bit of an old man's game Us, a bunch of 20-something's from two continents are trying to make it just a little bit more fun!

And now, as of February 2017, we've added "Bike Live" to our network of content, with Louis Suddaby also making the switch! Covering MotoGP, Domestic and World Superbikes, and even some Speedway too, this expansion will enable us to cover even more Motorsport under one roof!

Meet The Team

Ryan King - Another aspiring journalist from New York, in his final year of doing a Political Science major at University. He’s an avid F1 historian, and has produced Podcasts before, such as “F1nish Line” with former YouTube personality AthleekVG, and “The Scrutineer”, on his own website, Formuletta.

RJ O'Connell - Voice Actor extraordinaire, with an extraordinary passion for GT Racing in the Land of the Rising Sun. He runs Super GT World in his spare time, and is the newest regular addition to our show! 

Louis Suddaby - Louis is a new addition, hosting #BikeLive originally on Downforce Radio, covering MotoGP, Superbikes and Speedway since 2014. He's a brilliant host and a fantastic addition. And to be honest, anyone mad enough to support Hull City deserves all the praise in the world.

(Also, special thanks to other contributors we've had along the way, such as Adam Johnson, Rebecca James, Zoe HamiltonZara Daniela, and Conner "Knor" Pearson for things like video editing and graphic design, many many thanks.) 

The Plan

The Motorsport101 Network currently consists of two shows, Motorsport101 and BikeLive. M101 focuses on cars (Mostly F1, IndyCar, Formula E and occasionally Endurance), while BikeLIve focuses on the biking world (MotoGP and its support series, World and British Superbikes). Both aim to be around 90-150 minutes long, and in peak racing season (March to November), we'll be having as many as three shows a week, with M101 often splitting into smaller 60-90 minute shows when we deem it creatively appropriate. 

Our shows obviously focus on the series above, but we often tangent into other stuff too. We don't stick to sports here, we maintain a lot of pride in being ourselves, interjecting other sports like football, darts and snooker, as well as politics and other avenues of pop culture. If you're listening to us, you're here for us, not just what racing series Fernando Alonso is into this week.

Now, something I need to stress. This page is only for supporting us. We’re not withholding any content, regardless. Eventually, everyone listening or watching gets everything we do. This page could grow dust and have no patrons, and we’d still be doing this. But if you REALLY love us and want to support the show, then this is the best possible way you can support us, you get an even better podcast, and we give back with some extra perks and incentives!

Of course, having this show isn’t free, there’s hosting fees and website fees to cover, but if we can get them covered, it can put our minds at rest, and then anything else, we can potentially split it down the road. We also need to use analytics to get true statistics on the show, so we can use that to attract potential sponsors.

So, if you want to go the extra mile to support #Motorsport101 and what we do, this would be wonderful, and of course, thanks so much for taking the time to read, and support what we do!
