Hmmm well I don’t know. 8 months in prison is what you get for stabbing someone or hate crime. I think it’s a bit OTT for a lads’ prank even if it was risky and a massive nuisance. A good dose of community service would have done, I’d have thought.
If 8 months is really all you get for attempted murder then that is very worrying. This is pretty similar to what you would get for a serious driving related crime on the road, which considering the circumstances I think is fair, and should hopefully nip in the bud any prospective copycats.
I doubt he’ll serve more than 4 months anyway.11th November 2014, 8:34 at 8:34 am #285314
Yeah Iberia got really unlucky, with Finland sandbagging in the qualifiers they could have fallen into any group. Iberia might have still made it but the races didn’t really go their way either, then again they’re not really known for their consistency. We’ve definitely improved this year but I still can’t see us being any more than a nuisance to Finland and DE-AT-CH, they’re very good at getting their best drivers to join up, if we could had that kind of participation we’d have a chance of winning it (and I probably wouldn’t be racing! :P).
I watched all the broadcasts and thought yours was the most professional of the three, you seemed to have done a lot of homework/set up work by comparison. The only thing I felt that could possibly be improved was the way BSR handled the lower splits with a reporter, I felt that gave a little more insight into how it was going. I don’t know the first thing about broadcasting though so I don’t know how easy this would be to organise :).
I suppose they could have offered one split each to broadcasters for the finals, but I guess that would have created too much drama.10th November 2014, 0:01 at 12:01 am #285281
I think it was Button on…Raikkonen? When they were really close into t1 and t4.9th November 2014, 9:50 at 9:50 am #285108
Enjoyed that Joey! I don’t think the US clubs should give us too much trouble on the road side, Amjed was running about the same pace as me and I was in 2nd split. Oval is obviously likely to be a bit more mixed though, especially in the lower splits (we’re scraping the barrel a bit for oval racers).8th November 2014, 22:14 at 10:14 pm #284551
Did my bit to get UK&I into the final (led a 1,2,3,4,5 in split 2 :P), I’ll be watching the broadcast @joey-poey , really interested in how these US teams get on, and with Iberia messing up in their group the wildcard spot it still open.8th November 2014, 13:47 at 1:47 pm #284424
I’m crossing my fingers the standing restart rule is quietly dropped in off-season. No one seems to think it’s a good idea, but like double points if no insiders speak out early enough it’ll just sit there until it’s too late.28th October 2014, 0:26 at 12:26 am #280492
Hah! I love these, it was a bit better than last season’s to be fair! It’s nice to see so much enthusiasm.26th October 2014, 18:50 at 6:50 pm #28039124th October 2014, 23:15 at 11:15 pm #280258
Yeah I’ve given you all admin so you should be able to paint whichever car you want to use now. The UI is a bit different to the personal one so you might need to work the colours out yourselves (I don’t think it matters as long as it’s close).24th October 2014, 15:34 at 3:34 pm #280234
Is this the curse of Rossi?23rd October 2014, 17:29 at 5:29 pm #280182
I’ve made a team up, if anyone else wants to join just shoot me a PM (not sure how the application system works when recruitment is turned off)22nd October 2014, 15:12 at 3:12 pm #279883
We could try a 24 Heures du Fun race later if you want, although there doesn’t seem to be any qualifying so the first lap could get pretty interesting.
There was quite a bit of talk before this week about how the new V8 would be easier to drive, but from what I’ve heard it’s pretty much the same as the old one (a nightmare) :P. I haven’t driven any of my normal cars yet so can’t comment on the tyre change.
I’m still in World Cup mode at the minute, a lot of our best drivers are tied up with other races so we might struggle to make the final this year.20th October 2014, 11:49 at 11:49 am #279769
D is an interesting group, I have no idea who’ll come out on top there. I haven’t driven the RUF since it was released so I’ve got some catching up to do :P19th October 2014, 16:39 at 4:39 pm #279513
Yeah, Sainz didn’t exactly cover himself in glory on the first lap either. Was there ever any action taken by the stewards for that?18th October 2014, 13:58 at 1:58 pm #279456
Nice race by Rowland there, really put the pressure on at the end. Pity the race was a bit of a procession, Merhi looked like he was well fired up for it.
