    Hello and welcome to rounds 20 & 21 of the Thursday Night Championship! This week we go to a well known circuit in the Italian countryside, It is Imola! Legends say this is where the Racing God's come to race, every turn, every barrier, history and legacy lays. This track even claimed the life of the G.O.A.T of Formula 1. So as TNGTC entires its third season of racing at this amazing circuit, will you be brave enough to challenge the beast?

    Last Time out at Watkins

    Liam drops even more ice cream
    Ben announces what car he'll be driving this week
    Andrew and Rob meet up again
    Nic enters the matrix of lag
    Benji doesn't race because it's dry
    New boy Frank scores points in both races!

    Now in case anyone needs some inspiration *cough cough Andrew
    Here's what happened last season

    Liam wins his first ever TNGTC race in the wet
    Benji makes an unbelievable move around the outside on lance at turn 1
    Gaz and Ben battle to out for the win in the feature
    Bajny didn't kill anyone



    And if you somehow get lost, here's a very technical and boring map of the Imola circuit that no one will pay any interest to

    Q: Do you enjoy driving around this Imola circuit?

    Yes, one of my favourite tracks actually. There's very rarely a track that suits my style, so when I go to a track like this and Zolder. I eat even more potatoes because of the excitement

    Q: Who has most impressed you this season the most whether it be most improved or on track racing.
    Bajny

    Q: Where do you aim to be in each race this week?

    Yeah I like it. Already done some laps (Although most of them were spent playing dodge the lagging nic. P.S I lost, he even killed me and Gaz at the same time!)

    Q: Who has most impressed you this season the most whether it be most improved or on track racing.

    On track racing, probably Adam and Ben.

    Q: Where do you aim to be in each race this week?

    Well, I was very quick here last season, but I've been poor this season, so top 3.

    Q: How will you attack this awesome track this week, will you use an aggressive style, or a smooth style

    Aggrooth

    Legendary circuit but hate it! very challenging and not the best with these cars...

    track racing: Omari

    Q: Where do you aim to be in each race this week?
    Aim is always P1, in reality maybe just a podium.. close pace this wk

    Q: How will you attack this awesome track this week, will you use an aggressive style, or a smooth style

    Well here is my first press conference...

    Press Conference
    Q: Do you enjoy driving around this Imola circuit?
    I never drove around the classic layout, but I do think this modern layout is more challenging. There are some tricky corners, but I definitely like this track because of it.

    Q: Who has most impressed you this season the most whether it be most improved or on track racing.
    Since I'm new here there is not one specific person who impressed me the most, but I am pretty impressed by all of your lap times. I sure have quite the challenge ahead of me so that one day I can be just as fast.

    Q: Where do you aim to be in each race this week?
    Someone once told me to always aim high, so 1st :roflmao: But seriously, I am going to be satisfied if I just score some points in both races again. So my aim is top 10 in both races.

    Q: How will you attack this awesome track this week, will you use an aggressive style, or a smooth style?
    I am still learning how to get around the track a bit faster, so I will have to find the right line. That's why I'll try to drive as smooth as possible. Once I get up to pace with the rest of the field, I can get more aggressive.

    Q: When did you last have a baked potato?
    A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...

    Q: Do you enjoy driving around this Imola circuit
    Yes I love this track but the M3 is hard work compared to the Other cars I've driven here

    Q: Who has most impressed you this season the most whether it be most improved or on track racing.
    Tough one really as to be honest everyone is where I would expect if I had to pick someone maybe Dean as he seems like he will be 4th in the championship soon. Obviously gaz and Omari doing well to

    Q: Where do you aim to be in each race this week?
    Running out of chances to stay in this championship fight so I need luck would be happy with top 5 in the feature race and podium in sprint

    Q: How will you attack this awesome track this week, will you use an aggressive style, or a smooth style
    Have to be aggressive here because of the kerbs

    Q: When did you last have a baked potato?
    I'm not Irish what's a baked potato you sick trucker


    Don't forget to send or tell me about your best overtakes so I can show them off next week! The winner gets no more than a high five as one point is far far to much for people to comprehend

    Thanks to Benji for our highly controversial race thread and gaz for losing the questions lol thanks dudes

    Q: Do you enjoy driving around this Imola circuit?

    Another new one for me, did 10 laps or so last night, but was falling asleep at the wheel..... did a 1.44, so plenty of work to do.

    Q: Who has most impressed you this season the most whether it be most improved or on track racing.

    There are so many quick drivers, but I'd say Gaz, hes always there or there abouts.

    Q: Where do you aim to be in each race this week?

    I don't, I just hope Im not too far behind. I was on the pace last week so hope I can keep that up.

    Q: How will you attack this awesome track this week, will you use an aggressive style, or a smooth style

    I hear you need to be aggressive if you want the times. I Just need to put the time in, hopefully I can.

    Q: When did you last have a baked potato?

    Last Thursday, with beans and cheese yo (it's how most McEwan's eat them)
