For our Saturday Panel, Shane Hannon caught up with two Indy drivers at different points in their lives. Willy T Ribbs is a motorsport legend - the first black man to drive in the Indy 500, and first black driver to get behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car. He is also the focus of the Netflix documentary film 'Uppity: The Willy T Ribbs Story'. James Roe is a 22-year-old driver from Kildare who has just finished his rookie year in Indy Pro 2000 - picking up his maiden win in the season finale at Mid-Ohio. Willy talked training with Ali, dealing with racism in motorsport in the 80s, and James outlined his ambition to become the first Irishman to win the iconic Indy 500.
