    Hi Everyone, this week we head to the 2nd and final British round of the season. For a few drivers in our league, this is their home race so they will be pushing 5% more (including me). As this is the 22 & 23 rounds of the Thursday Night GT Championship we are coming into the final leg of the season, as after this it's the fly away races in Asia and the traditional season ending endurance race at Le Mans. Every race from now will be crucial points in the championship, so small mistakes could be vital.

    Donington is a well loved circuit in the East-Midlands in England where famous formulas such as MotoGP, WSB, BSB, Touring Cars and Formula One have race around this 2.49 miles circuit. Its positioned right beside an airport so traveling won't be an issue (I like planes). This season we will be using the GP layout, YES! The feature race will be at 4pm and the sprint at 5pm, so bring your sunglasses and anti-migraine tablets. It will also be a dry race, so we can get over our colds from Imola.

    Feature: Laps 4pm
    Sprint: laps 5pm
    Weather: Dry and blinding

    Length: 2.49 Miles
    Turns: 12 - 7 right & 5 left
    TNGTC Lap Record: 1.25:7 Adam Morris Season 1

    Last Time Out at Imola

    For everyone with Dementia *cough cough Rob. We where at Imola! It was wet and foggy. Nic took an early lead holding off Gaz with Adam, Liam and Ben a second or two back. Benji was then just holding on a couple more seconds down the road. But just as Nic made his pitstop, it started to stop raining! I (Benji) caught the trio in front like an absolute boss and was right behind going into the pits. It then turned foggy with Gaz leading and Liam, Ben and Benji fighting for 2nd. Adam spun at turn 2 and Nic had issues with tyre selections causing him to pit 4 times and go a lap down. Omari didn't have the best of features but took the win in the sprint. Gaz won the feature with Liam bringing in a 1-2. In the sprint Dean drove to 2nd behind Omari but all the action happened in the fight for 3rd where Lance held off 4 cars for 10 laps until spinning on an auto spin kerb. Gaz ended up getting 3rd with Liam and Nic battling for 4th and a chasing Benji in 6th. Adam and Ben both stuffed damage and came 9th and 10th. Will anyone be able to catch Gaz now?

    Here's Bens questions sponsored this week by his very own wheelchair

    Q1: do you think gaz can be stopped for the championship

    Q2: who do you most like racing in the league and why?

    Q3: donnington this week where is the best place for overtaking?

    Q4: imagine your the league organiser what one thing would you change for next season?

    Q5: boobs or ass?
     
  2. Q1: do you think gaz can be stopped for the championship
    Yes, Remember Bathurst Sprint

    Q2: who do you most like racing in the league and why?
    I do really enjoy racing against Andrew because we always fight each other to the limit, giving each other just enough room. Our mess about races in GINETTA's, Clio's and Formula Renualts are golden.

    Q3: donnington this week where is the best place for overtaking?
    Hairpin Time :sneaky:

    Q4: imagine your the league organiser what one thing would you change for next season?
    Bring back the random car draw, but Only Have like Mercedes, Bentley, M3 and Aston

    Q5: boobs or ass

    That's a hard one.
    Have Both at the same time :p

    Q1: do you think gaz can be stopped for the championship
    I had a similar lead at this stage and always felt comfortable to a point so I'm sure gaz has this covered

    Gaz, Liam, Adam,Omari,Andrew and Benji to a degree. People who give you racing room

    Q3: donnington this week where is the best place for overtaking?
    Hairpin or back straight

    Q4: imagine your the league organiser what one thing would you change for next season?

    Q1: do you think gaz can be stopped for the championship
    Depends on if Omari can get some track time in to challenge him, otherwise we might need to call Lionhearted to come take him out...lol.

    Q2: who do you most like racing in the league and why?
    Everyone really, most of us has history back to the CM games, so we know each others style and usually race craft.

    Q3: donnington this week where is the best place for overtaking?
    Sector 3 is best spot for passing.

    Q4: imagine your the league organiser what one thing would you change for next season?
    If we are going back to the old points systems then we should go back to the one race but longer distance.

    Q5: boobs or ass?

    I've always been an ass guy...lol. More cushion for the pushin....lol. Sorry to mods if that was a little inappropriate.

  11. Q1: do you think gaz can be stopped for the championship
    As good a chance as Nico rosberg being stopped in F1 title fight... Too late really. They both deserve a title.

    Q2: who do you most like racing in the league and why?
    Lance is by far the cleanest most space aware driver on the grid. He is patient, calculated and has no ego. Or maybe he's just always high as a hippie lolol. Always a pleasure sharing Tarmac with him, his racing character pays off and he pulls off the most stunning overtakes. Gaz is a close 2nd and rightly so because it's hard to balance being on a winning agenda and be most conservative combat racer. He's most successful at it. My name is Nic, I'm not so great at all of these things :thumbsdown:

    Q3: donnington this week where is the best place for overtaking?
    Sector 1, 2 & 3 :O_o:

    Q4: imagine your the league organiser what one thing would you change for next season?
    Shorter seasons to encompass as many changes As u like, give ppl more opportunity to win a championship, more numbers in attendance, better all round really.

    Q5: boobs or ass?
    Boobs

  14. Q1: do you think gaz can be stopped for the championship

    For my sake hopefully not

    Q2: who do you most like racing in the league and why?

    I like racing everyone to a degree, there are a few though that you can race that little bit more and have confidence that you'll not tag each other

    Q3: donnington this week where is the best place for overtaking?

    Every corner can overtake on if car in front makes a big enough error

    Q4: imagine your the league organiser what one thing would you change for next season?

    Keep same points system, reduce the bonus points given down to one point unless is endurance then should be two

    Q5: boobs or ass?

    Both as I'm a badass

    I am sorry to announce that I won't be participating in the championship anymore. I just lack the skill and technique to go any faster at the moment. Right now I am easily 3 seconds slower per lap and that is so frustrating that I don't enjoy racing anymore. Plus, I feel like a huge nuisance to the rest of the field for being so slow. This championship is just out of my league... for now.

    I will keep an eye on the championship and will keep training so that one day I can come back to be competitive enough to go for a top 5 spot!

    I thank everyone for giving me the opportunity to race with you. At least now I know where I have to work up to.

  20. 1: nope, hope not
    2: mostly Ben because we have a long history, he's always fair, he knows the bounds and he's fun to race against.
    3: anywhere if you're brave. Outside of Coppice anyone? ;)
    4: car class
    5: both, why not?
