Race 15 - 2021

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • Press Release: Anton Wilson Racing would like to congratulate Marthis Fiino on a fantastic season. Fiino's on the record remark was as follows, "Of course the congratulations should be mine, I am number one, no?"
  • Lefty Louis has a conflict in the crew after a hugely up and down series, but his position in qualifying is solid enough.
  • Manne Love may well be retiring at the end of this race and you can see it in his performance.
  • Emil Ziskie mistakenly tweets a picture of a contract from Yee Valley Racing, then quickly deletes it. Rumours abound, however, that he's about to replace Van Can in the iStock Series.
  • Abnaber Salad, also about to retire, eases off and enjoys himself one final time.
  • Tamauria Spiders sets a course record here at our home track, and is delighted with herself. Pole!
  • Winter McFish seems pleased with what she's achieved this week, calling the conditions "Perfect"!
  • Cheech Kong calls out Chad Blackstone, who starts ahead of him, telling him lap 1 is the only time Chad will be in front of him this race.
