    The Track


    [​IMG]



    Monza, originally built in 1922, is the worlds third purpose built race track, only behind Brooklands and Indianapolis. 5.793km (3.600mi) Of pure speed, with 11 official turns, with the fastest lap to date a 1:21.046 by Rubens Barrichelo in the Ferrarri F2004. Contrary to many peoples beliefs, the oval circuit was not the first version of the Monza track, the oval first appeared in 1954, as the first version was deemed to be too dangerous, in 1928, 1 driver and 27 spectators were killed in the most serious Italian racing accident to date. in 1933 the track claimed 3 drivers in 1 race, prompting chicanes to be installed, which remained until 1954. When the oval was created, it could be combined with the old track to create a 10km speedfest. At time of typing, Monza is currently having changes made to turn 1, and there is an idea to add gravel back to the Parabolica bend. Monza is a dangerous track, as of now it has claimed the lives of 18 drivers in it history, Although fraser nearly achieved that in lap 1 of the Zolder sprint.

    Above are the proposed changes to Monza, it will completely bypass the current 1st chicane and become what you see above, what do you all think of it?

    Last Time Out


    Zolder returned to start season 5 of TNGTC, With a very hotly contested grid, Dominic took the win ahead of Andrew, And Omari. The sprint race was a fiesty affair, Gaz and Ben duked it out up front with Liam, Andrew & Nic, in a battle for most of the race, Gaz eventually won ahead of Ben.

    if that drops me any places I'd love to see evidence of that because I did at least two of the cuts in avoiding action of something. I remember at least one was to avoid arse-invading Liam, same again with Matt.

    Tell us a few basic facts about you, Name, age, etc.
    My actual name is Wietze Vink which in English is Max Verstappen, but since no one outside of the Netherlands can pronounce that, I go by Frank Finch internationally (Frank is my middle name, Finch is English for Vink).
    36 years old
    From the Netherlands
    Work in retail

    What background do you have in league racing prior to TNGTC?
    None. TNGTC was my first league. I have done the full 24 Hours of Le Mans (with a 3-man team) twice against AI: once on GT5 and once on Project CARS, and will be doing it again this year.


    What interested you into joining TNGTC?
    I had been racing a lot on Project CARS and then Ben invited me through Twitter. I was interested how I would do against clean drivers. Turned out I had a lot to learn, but racing in TNGTC already made me 2-3 seconds faster in about 6 months. Hopefully I'll be able to gain a couple more this season.

    What is your favourite band/musician, and what is your favourite song by them?
    My favorite band is Terror and my favorite song is one of theirs called Return To Strength.

    What hobbies do you have?
    I play guitar in a band called For Blood And Vengeance for over 7 years now. I've been playing in bands and doing shows for almost 20 years, playing everywhere from small pubs to big venues to fairly large festivals (our biggest crowd ever was about 8,000 people). And since I joined TNGTC I consider sim racing as a hobby as well.

    Finally, what motorsports do you follow?
    F1, WTCC, DTM, Blancpain Series, ADAC GT Masters, WEC.

    Shouldn't these be posted in the steward's thread, or at least the Zolder thread?

    People look more in the newer threads and it's not a steward issue myself and lance do this ourselves. Like I said I have photo evidence of each cut and they have to be major (a) to leave the race track that much your 4 wheels are not even on a kerb (b) all the stewards can say is yes your right lol
