Race 8 - 2021

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: Shiva Choi answered reporters questions in front of the team's garage. "I felt like I had the fastest car out there, the pit crew was in the zone, some of the antics out there kind of got in the way." **CLANG** **CRASH** in the background we can see Harold Coins angrily throwing wrenches around his banged up car. "BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP Michigan Hicks!!" "Thank you," says Choi as he quickly goes over to Coins trying to calm him down as the crew closes the space.
  • PRESS RELEASE: After his victory last week in Portugal, Gunther Heindrickson made it known that he is looking towards bigger and better things. "I think the way we've performed this season, I'm ready to move up to the main series," Heindrickson said. "I realize there's half a season to go yet, but I don't think there's any reason why we can't get Yooperland back into the iStock series next season."
  • PRESS RELEASE: As the season nears its halfway point, Fireplug Fitzpatrick was asked if he was still serious about retirement after the season ends. While Fitzpatrick indicated that he was leaning towards retirement, he would not rule out the possibility of returning to Yooperland Speedtraps next season, or perhaps signing with another team. "Last year, I felt I wasn't helping the team at all. This year, we've had some good performances, but some bad ones too. I think it'll depend on how the remainder of the season plays out."
  • PRESS RELEASE: Despite his completely shameful performance in the entire season, Valkyr Slipper has seen some success in the previous race. Hoping to use this momentum to propel himself to success he is seen frantically practicing around the track. "I have to do it. I can't take the Jayden jokes anymore. I HAVE TO DO IT!
  • Race Practice Results:
