Race 4 - 2020

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • Dr Strangeloaf uploads a Vlog, stares creepily into his webcam while ranting about SSD reading his thoughts, cites Hunky Davis training incident as evidence. He does, however, have a spectacular qualifying week; seizing pole, and two performance chips!
  • Hunky Davis was interviewed regarding the ongoing feud between Jane Kinglet and Dr. Strangeloaf: “That duel was the single most brutal thing I have seen throughout my whole time at iStock. Poor guy qualified for second place and got smashed off the track in the first ten miles. Honestly, I’m surprised that Strangeloaf didn’t even get injured by that maneuver, he must have installed one of those fancy new seats at the start of the season. Those rollcages sure can take a lot these days, he rolled over three times or so and it only took them minutes to get his car running again. Speaking of fancy, his supercharger configuration sure is interesting, I hav-“ “Is this really relevant, Davis?” “Sorry, I trailed off a bit there. Yeah, Jane really crushed Strangeloaf’s chances this season. I wonder if he will get his revenge this week. His qualifier results haven’t brought him anywhere near Jane during the last couple of races… Speaking of near, I’ve been seeing those two spending quite a lot of time together off-track, but I never really bothered to listen in on them.”
  • Nathan Dunkleman seems okay with his qualifying performance, having out-qualified his teammate: last week's winner A.I. Kraken.
  • Paul Puffin is interviewed after the session. "I was telling my crew that the car just didn't feel right, and that had something to do with it, for sure."
  • Race Practice this week paid off for Hunky Davis, with permanent qualities being established by Dr. Strangeloaf, Jane Kinglet and Jac Houns!
