Speaking after the recent test event Slim said that he was more confident behind the wheel after his long lay off than he felt immediately after qualifying. He expressed the need to cut out silly mistakes which cost him a couple of victories last night, in particular he aims to do plenty of recon on all the pit lanes at the various tracks we will be racing on!!! He aims to put in some serious practice in the lead upto the first race and see's no reason why he can't push for wins and to be a championship contender.

Illegal build claims are being denied by TfR Max after dominant qualifying pace, in a statement he admitted that he knew little of the reason why he had shown such pace but felt it could be the challenge of racing his longtime nemesis HLR Milo the rough round the edges series challenger.
" I felt the need to runaway" max was quoted as saying who felt under pressure with Milos explanation about the inside line and who has right of way. "he has such a strong manner of verbally expressing his feelings, hes an inspiration to me"
When asked about his lack of wins hes just commented it would be rude to monopolize the top step this week.
On how hes sees the coming competition he replied "I have a a secret weapon to gain lobby advantage and secure a series white wash" He was unwilling to expand on what this could be. but left the studio muttering "mute button mute button"

Speaking outside this team headquaters Myles said:

"The test event went ok for me. I won the first race and did okay in another two. Im afraid I cannot be blamed for people lagging into me and then complaining about it as im I has side swiped them on purpose."

"If I no longer go for gaps it is no longer racing."

Phil MaCavity, roving reporter for performance parts lads mag, Cams & Clams, paid a surprise visit to the headquarters of Rough Riders yesterday. Flynn and Spacejock were testing the new cars, in the new workshop, all paid for by a mega cash sponsorship deal by Durex.

Quote:
Phil; Think you can live up to your sponsor's expectations this season?

Spacejock; While it's fair to say, without Durex we wouldn't be racing, I think mid table is a reasonable expectation and one particular Asian betting syndicate predicts a podium for us.

Flynn; Who did you say you are? Never heard of you. F*%@#ff before I set the dogs on you.

We'll bring you more news on the team when, and if, we get any.

After 3 hours of fiddling in the DS3 yesterday, got my Iberion Full time down to 1.00.066, certified, on the boards.

I'll be buggered if I can break the 1 min barrier though.

Well team DGAF (Don't give a f.......!) Finally remembered where they had stored their car's and three days before the big event got down to building and tuning their race car, having previously run different upgrade packages with no time spent tuning just to get an idea how the mini felt.
Cash wasn't feeling to great about his chances and remarked that he'd probably have to fit a baby seat in his car due to RL commitments as for his team mate, well he will be probably carrying the nappies/bottles/change of clothes etc etc...as you don't fit a great deal into these little cars
Testing at Iberian full looked promising, till what seemed to be a leak of somesort coming from Cash's mini, maybe it was oil from the gearbox...on closer inspection of the track after testing proved we was wrong, the guy's dumping the used nappies in the boot and this waswhat was leaking onto the track....final words....don't draft this guy.

Well it looks as though Def-Shaft Racing will be making it to the start line for the inaugural ECC. There had been doubts as to whether this new team would even make to the start line but an engine deal has now been sorted and the team are now in the final stages of testing.

From early reports it seems that this team has its work cut out. TfR Stonedef appears to be suffering the most with reliability issues " the car will be running fine one minute then bang it loses all power, its almost as if there is a bad connection somewhere. The team is working flatout to fix the problem & hopefully we will have it sorted come race day".

When asked about his team mate Shafter 316, TfR Stonedef was quoted as saying " some say he used be in TfR & that he used to be very very quick, all i know is He's NOT the Stig.

Fast Cars and Faster Women magazine have just interview PzR Crazy to see how his pre-season prep has been going..

"Well, sadly, we had a steering issue develop late in testing, with some play developing in the rack, causing us some real stability issues, we've contacted the steering rack supplier and they've sent their new version of the rack out, unfortunately it's either faulty as well, or they neglected to tell us it's been re-engineered and totally feels different to the old one..
We are continuing testing, but at this late stage there isn't much we can do but soldier on, the first two outings we've tried the new steering rack at has shown us to be about .3 of a second off our usual pace, so we may have to re-adjust our expectations this season, but rest assured we won't be giving in.. no sir-eee"..

On a lighter note, next week we have Jugs and Jelly, a combination made in heaven.. stay tuned..

RaF- "Well testing has gone well and its nice to come back and be straight on the pace, if things go well we should be near the top at the end of the season."

Autosport-"How are you finding your new team mate?"

RaF-"He's a great driver and I think theres definitely more to come from spiny, its nice to have a team mate where there is no pressure on winning just to enjoy the racing itself."

Autosport-"So will you be pulling out all stops to win this championship?"

RaF-"Not really with the short amount of time available for testing and tuning Im just gonna relax and see where we end up, as long as I don't make any silly mistakes i'll be happy wherever I finish."

With spearmint rhino sponsoring one thing is sure there will be plenty of attention on this teams pit girls.

These pictures were taken during a testing session at Camino and at the JAM motosport factory.

More on this story as it unfolds.

Other rumours suggest it wasn't really a bite. He actually sat on the dirty spoon, which was left in the dirty bowl in his room. Furthermore, when his mother discovered it, she unleashed spoon hell upon his ****, and he now needs a tetanus for verbal intoxication injuries.
