Race 12 - 2021

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: Solid State Drive’s spokesperson Jack Arson has released a press release after last week’s disastrous race: “We’ve crashed more often last week than we have ever crashed before! The team had no choice but to put the finest minds of our R&D department to work again, and despite the ridiculous criticism from YIFF, they have come up with a solution: We will slightly reduce the amount of SPEED in our alloys, and simply add more BURNING DESIRE FOR REVENGE. That sure sounds like a plan to me! And on another note, The List was right! Almost all drivers we listed tried their hardest to smash us off the track. They may have succeeded last race, but next week is full of opportunities for us.”
  • PRESS RELEASE: With the complete disaster of the previous race, Airen Slipper is becoming visibly more erratic in all interviews. "They'll see... We will show them all. We will make them all pay for this. This is sabotage! This is corruption! I know it when I see it, and this is no coincidence. Whoever is doing this will regret it. Mark my words!"
  • PRESS RELEASE: Unlike his brother, Ragnar Slipper is visibly calmer during his own interview. "I know it looks bad and the string of bad luck is having an effect on our team. But we can't forget, we started that way. We were losing it all. And look at where we are now. We still hold a great position in the rankings and the chance to win. I think we should be focusing more on how our brother Valkyr has become a better and better driver as the season goes along. He is making the Slippers proud."
  • Racina Honkslams makes a charity appearance to support "Kids Who Can't Read Good". It goes well, though her own fluency is indistinguishable from the loud and unsettling gnashing of her teeth throughout.
  • Drew Breezus seems positive in his press conference. "The thing about racin` is, it's unpredictable. And I think we saw some of that unpredictability today."
  • Flash Finley has a fantastic week. "I feel like I have this track figured out, and was able to do some things—I feel good about this race."
  • Race Practice: An astonishing four permanent gains: Andrew Fiddler, Hunky Davis, Jane Kinglet and Airen Slipper; temporary gains for Jac Houns, Victor Lucky and Airen Slipper.
