Pre-Race Interview
1. Some say simracing is addicting. It affects many of us in different ways. Some are intense competitors, some are the hotlappers trying to find that last tenth out of a setup, and some are addicted to simracing gear. What is your level of addiction?
2. Donington is a fun track in the Skippy. Which track is your favourite so far?
3. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve this series for next season?

This track is another new one for me. I just did a few reconnaissance laps to get a feel for it and so far it has a similar feel to Mid-O. So I’m looking forward to learning this one!

Well, came back home to no internet and cable. Tech won't be out till tomorrow. Hopefully they get it fixed or else I might not make the race. Not sure how competitive I will be if they do get it fixed with only one day to practice. Fingers crossed.

Chris...i just got off the phone with our sponsors  and they DEMAND that you be in that car on Thursday.  You’re the points scoring machine and I’m the pay driver, that’s the deal!!!

No deal. If Paul gets brought on I walk. Don't think the sponsors will take kindly to me wreaking a fellow team member. 

Does this mean we'll see you on track this week?

I really hope so. I am having IRacing withdrawal. Tech should be out today around 2, so should know by tonight if I'll have internet or not.

I am definitely addicted. But I am here for the racing. I want to close battles and real driving. Games with AI are boring because it is predictable and this is realistic in the sense that it is skill vs skill and not just figuring out the computer tendencies. I just need to find more speed in the skippy at the moment. Thanks to Justin I am hoping to. Setups are important for the faster cars which I run but I am still working on figuring that out.

2. Donington is a fun track in the Skippy. Which track is your favourite so far?

For the season so far it would have to be Mid O. It is one of my all time favorites and out of this season it is my fav we run. I wish we ran road atl but hopefully next season.

3. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve this series for next season?

Just more cars but we are doing really well this season and I am sure there will be a lot bigger grid tomorrow. The racing will definitely attract more as we keep bringing more and more. I honestly do think we could have David write articles and that would attract more drivers. He can spin some good words!

Well, I prefer crack but heroin will do. Oh wait... wrong addiction. I have a very addictive personality that was channeled in not so positive ways as a child. As an adult, I channel my additive traits into more positive hobbies. Such as golf, bowling and now simracing. When I pick up a hobby, I go all out, so my name is Chris and I am a simracing addict. I am new to this so I don't have much for equipment. But I am what's known as an equipment hoe.

 2. Donington is a fun track in the Skippy. Which track is your favourite so far?

My favorite track is laguna seca. Really enjoy that course. SPA is pretty good too. But Road America is a short drive away, so have to show some local love!

 3. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve this series for next season?

Make Paul start at the back of the grid every race?

Next season we will all have verified weigh-ins. The lightest driver will have no weight penalty, with everyone else having to add the appropriate amount of weight to the car. All in the name of realism, of course.

This should have Paul at the back...  :lol:
