Race 10 - 2019

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • Press release: With the end of the league arriving and the utter disaster that was the previous race, tensions have been rising. Many have asked themselves whether the Slippers would be capable of keeping their title. Airen Slipper had this to say: "We had a few slip-ups in this season. Many problems we did not account for, many less than satisfactory results. But to my adversaries I say, beware! The Slippers are not out for the count, and we'll make sure you have to fight for every inch of track you traverse. We'll see whether you slip or not..." After this rousing speech, many became worried because of a bottle in Airen's back pocket, with 'Spac Lu' written on the label. The words weren't completely visible due to the pocket and answers have not been forthcoming. He'll begin 15th.
  • Leapfrog Jones meets his fan club for the first time, having assembled them all together for this final race of the season. He'll begin 14th.
  • Abnaber Salad appears on ESPN race week segment; gains 10th. Great result for him!
  • Varalia Spiders suffers repeated and awful suspension problems during qualifying; that's 36th for her.
  • Juan Solo has a great time with his fans at a local theme park, and good lap times too. He'll start 7th.
  • Yokum Schmidt has his championship hopes dashed after a fullscale overhaul of his engine is required shortly after qualifying. The resultant penalties will drop him to 37th.
  • Takumi Fujiwara has his engine blow up entirely just after setting his first lap of the day, leaving him with that time. It's only good enough for 40th.
