1) Here we are for R1 at Australia! What did you learn from the preseason race last week?
Select the right setup or you end up in a wall..

2) What were you main motivations for joining the league this year?
Me and Kevin both thought a good league race would be great so we came here once more!

3) Looks like Classic Cars are making their way back for 2017. Are you excited for this? I believe the last game which had some classic cars was in 2013 and that game was rather popular with the classics and in general.
Absolutely had a couple top 10 records at the time round some tracks, the 2002 ferrari makes me happy!

1) Here we are for R1 at Australia!  What did you learn from the preseason race last week?
I need to be less aggressive and understand that people may not see you in their blind spot. And I hope my teammate joins for Australia!

2) What were you main motivations for joining the league this year?
Hopefully come in the top 10. I'm not the greatest driver and this is my first league. It's fun so far!

3) Looks like Classic Cars are making their way back for 2017.  Are you excited for this?  I believe the last game which had some classic cars was in 2013 and that game was rather popular with the classics and in general.
It should be interesting to drive the classic cars. Always look forward to a new F1 game! I didn't start playing until F1 2015, so I never got to try the classic cars before.

Pre-Race Interview:
1) Here we are for R1 at Australia!  What did you learn from the preseason race last week?
I learned that strategy and tire choice will be one of the most important factors for a good race.  Also a few other secrets ;)


2) What were you main motivations for joining the league this year?
I really wanted to get back onto the PC as I was doing my PS4 league setup work on there anyway, and I graphics card was going to waste!  I was also hoping to team up again with Dark which always make it more fun having a friend as a teammate to work it!

3) Looks like Classic Cars are making their way back for 2017.  Are you excited for this?  I believe the last game which had some classic cars was in 2013 and that game was rather popular with the classics and in general.
Classic cars for me a little added bonus, but it would be cool if you could set a lobby and everyone had to use the same car.  Since they vary so much in performance, it is not that fun to race them all against each other.  I can't wait for more news and hope that they have some improved multiplayer options.

1) Here we are for R1 at Australia! What did you learn from the preseason race last week? Unfortunately wasent able to make it because of my graduation but im here to dominate the grid in Australia
2) What were you main motivations for joining the league this year? To come win the CC with Tron again of course, and winning the drivers championship would always be a plus :)
3) Looks like Classic Cars are making their way back for 2017. Are you excited for this? I believe the last game which had some classic cars was in 2013 and that game was rather popular with the classics and in general. Im pretty excited, i only got to use the classic cars in 2013 on the demo so i never really touched on them too much

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to miss the first race. I will be in hotels this week. I tried to see if I could use my laptop with a controller, but I couldn't get within 4 s of my previous times and frequently crashed (even with assists). I definitely don't want to crash the leaders out when the try to lap me. How do you guys with a controller drive with such precision?

I suppose it would be alright if this reserve driver took your place for this round?

1) Here we are for R1 at Australia!  What did you learn from the preseason race last week?
That all the fast guys are still really fast and because of such a tight group 4-12 it will be tough to score points every week. If everyone shows up each week it will be a really fun and challenging season.

2) What were you main motivations for joining the league this year?
Same as every year to race with clean guys that I know that enjoy racing together. Something fun to look forward to and do each week.

3) Looks like Classic Cars are making their way back for 2017.  Are you excited for this?  I believe the last game which had some classic cars was in 2013 and that game was rather popular with the classics and in general.
I don't really care about classic cars. I'd rather codemasters put more time into making their game good then adding crap we don't need. There's plenty of other fixes and additions they could do other than adding classic cars and tracks.

 Pre-Race Interview:
1) Here we are for R1 at Australia!  What did you learn from the preseason race last week? anything can happen and fast
2) What were you main motivations for joining the league this year? I like racing with the guys
3) Looks like Classic Cars are making their way back for 2017.  Are you excited for this? Yes I am but we still not sure how they will be used in the game but it's really nice I believe the last game which had some classic cars was in 2013 and that game was rather popular with the classics and in general. we had a big league with 4 divisions at that time and we also had 80's and 90's classic cars league. It would be nice that the 2017 edition brings back that frenzy

I learned that I need to not crash to win.

I wanted to try my hand at something more serious for racing games.

I never played F12013 and I dont know much about classic cars so I guess we'll see if its fun.

1) Here we are for R1 at Australia! What did you learn from the preseason race last week?

I learned that I am very slow and out of practice, and that Darklol is still VERY fast. Also, I have tons of issues with tire wear, hoping to correct that.

2) What were you main motivations for joining the league this year?

It had been several years since I had last raced in the league, and considering I had time to commit to the league, I wanted to give it a shot once again.

3) Looks like Classic Cars are making their way back for 2017. Are you excited for this? I believe the last game which had some classic cars was in 2013 and that game was rather popular with the classics and in general.

I loved the classic cars in 2013, by far the cars I have been most competitive in across a season in PRL. I'm really looking forward to their return!

2) What were you main motivations for joining the league this year?  Practice mostly for F1 2017 
 3) Looks like Classic Cars are making their way back for 2017.  Are you excited for this?  As long as the classics are the best and fastest classics?  I believe the last game which had some classic cars was in 2013 and that game was rather popular with the classics and in general.
