Another season has finished. Once again, I have been boggled at the speed of pretty must everyone else on the grid this year. I’ll never understand how you guys can go so fast! To make myself feel better, I like to think that I’m as good at playing Fallout 3, as all you guys are at the F1 games. :P
Anyway, I’d just like to say a few words. Worry not, it’ll not be like a speech from the Oscars or anything like that though. I’m not that eloquent. :P
Firstly, thanks go to @magnificent-geoffrey for trusting myself and @silverkeg to run this most, prestigious championship. I’m pretty pleased we were able to get the show on the road.
Thanks also goes to @commonmonsoon who done that completely wicked opening post, finishing times and scores and things, with his fancy html tags. I still don’t know how to work them. :S
A mention goes to all the new guys who took to the grid this year too. Clean fair racing all round (mostly), and worthy additions to the grid I think, especially @jamiefranklinf1 who is a very worthy Champion. Congratulations again Jamie. You done good, so you did!
Many thanks go to my team mate @jonnyw360f1 , for without his help, Lotus would never have beaten Mclaren to “The Wooden Spoon”!!! :D
…..”wait, what?” …… “Oh, we didn’t beat them, did we not?”… “Oh….”
Moving swiftly along……..
I think I’d like to thank my internet connection. It has actually allowed me to finish all the races I took part in, except for the ones where I was interrupted by my sister calling for lunch, or by my camera falling over and then running out of memory……
From my own point of view, I think I’ve become a better backmarker than I was last year. To be quite honest, I really should have been in a HRT. It would have suited me better probably. :P I did do my best to scrap for the remaining points that were on offer, while not trying to block championship contenders, and other much faster drivers than myself. Hopefully I wasn’t too much of a moving chicane!
I look forward to doing it all over again next year. In the meantime, @supernicebob has mentioned doing some GT5 races. I’d love it if we could arrange a few of these. I feel *way* more at home with that game, to the point where I’ve been switching off driver aids and using manual gears. The Le Mans 24 Laps was brilliant last year, and some races along the same lines would be really good fun.
Anyway, I’ve waffled a bit there, so I’ll shut up now. Take care you guys.
