Race 2 - 2020

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • North Isles Racing have spent a substantial amount of money on hiring the chief engineer from the FerrariT F1 team. They hope to gain some of the extra speed from battery feedback seen more in the F1 series.
  • Solid State Drive’s driver Hunky Davis is denying that he took part in the race last Saturday: “All my friends insist that I participated in some alleged stock car race last Saturday on the Disney World 200 track. That’s simply impossible… The last thing I can remember was being ushered into a “VersaLife” clinic by some sort of private security detail while I was on a business trip in Hong Kong. I-I tried to get away, but they grabbed me by the shoulders and muttered something about implants for enhancing my “smart” skill. Honestly the last two weeks are just a vague blur in my memory, but that itchy patch on the back of my head is concerning to say the least.” A Solid State Drive spokesperson has stated that it was “extremely irresponsible” to outsource the driver training, and that all future training sessions will take place under direct supervision from the team leaders.
  • After his success at the opening of the 2020 season, Foggy Cockburn has requested that the media properly acknowledge his status by gently stroking his hair before asking any questions. He has also made us aware that he will emit a low rumbling sound to express his approval of a line of questioning, and simply scratch at the arms and face of journalists who rub him up the wrong way. Yellow In Front Forever is also please to announce a competition for fans as a way of thanking them for supporting the team through their rise from the Dev Series. One lucky fan will get the chance to have Foggy Cockburn fall asleep on their lap one sunny afternoon* once Mr Cockburn has finished grooming. To enter the competition, fans are encouraged to scent mark the pit wall at Watkins Glen, and Cockburn will select his favourite musk. *timings are variable and will fall between Cockburn's day-long nap and his customary late night running around, rooting through drawers and noisily climbing over the furniture while the team tries to sleep.
  • In response to allegations of financial and tax irregularities launched against Franceso Rivera, Magnum Racing has retained the services of the law firm Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe; Tax Attorneys to the Stars. "We promise to tie up any litigation regarding such alleged improprieties in the court system for years and years. We're patient." Magnum Racing stands firm behind their drivers (and lawyers).
  • Dr. Strangeloaf issued a statement on social media: "The Incident between Jane Kinglet and me was unfortunate but our qualifying lap speaks for itself and our fans know who the better driver is."
  • Angelina Muir is interviewed after taking 15th, following her shock win last week. "The fans have been great, really supportive. We just wanna live UP to that support and bring 'em a win this weekend, if we can."
  • Cucumbers Caulfield is live streamed getting into a swearing match with a fan, deliberately winding them up and clearly enjoying the reddening face of his opponent.
  • Training is clearly paying off for the following drivers, who will race at a higher level this week: Airen Slipper, Jane Kinglet, Oliver Otter, Al Houns, Dr Strangeloaf, Jack Carmichael, Paul puffin, Angelina Muir, Nathan Dunkleman and Leapfrog Jones.
