Race 10 - 2021

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: An enraged Airen Slipper had to be dragged away from the press conference held in the Slipper estate after a remark was made about his dodging capabilities. While insults and weird metaphors involving Wolff and a pack of rabid dogs were spewed a spokesperson for the family stood in front of the cameras, blocking the view, all the while smiling pleasantly... if a bit toothily.
  • PRESS RELEASE: Ragnar Slipper dressed his fans after the disaster is the previous two races in order to reassure of his dedication towards victory. "It has come to my attention that something might have been happening and the past two qualifiers proved it. The problem has since been... dealt with and hopefully nothing more will occur. Wouldn't want anything untoward to happen, right?" At this point the racer grinned widely at the camera before retiring to his quarters.
  • PRESS RELEASE: Jack Arson, the spokesperson of Solid State Drive has released an official press release regarding the team’s performance this season: “We have bought together the finest minds of our R&D team and created a master list of all drivers that have wronged us this season! This includes both of those YIFF drivers, Cucumbers Caulfield and Selinia Spiders. As the next step our engineers have made use of advanced metallurgical techniques to replace the frames of our cars with an alloy of SPEED and A BURNING DESIRE FOR REVENGE. Now it’s up to all of *your* R&D teams to find out what happens next. Oh wait, all of you don’t even any! Also, driver Jane Kinglet has informed our committee that she is *still* angry at Dr. Strangeloaf!”
  • Randy Flamethrower gets in a Twitter flame war which is only made worse by the fact that his basic standard of written English turns several swear words into even worse, more perplexing variants.
  • RACE PRACTICE: Permanent improvement for Hana Pryde; temporary for Ragnar Slipper, Ariel Pryde and Daniel Burman.
