Race 8 - 2021

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: In enormous contrast to the previous week, Airen was seen happily humming a tune while hanging around with his family. The previous race's victor and heavily praised driver seemed to have made a 180 degree turn from his apopletic rage. Some people who got closer swear that they hear him say "YFF? Heh, more like YIFF!" The truth of this rumour could not be ascertained.
  • PRESS RELEASE: Ragnar has cemented himself as one of the core drivers of the Slipper family, just like his brother. Truly remarkable how the two siblings have managed to gain such a prominent position in the racing industry. "It is all a matter of practice and opportunity. As long as you manage to push forward results will eventually show themselves. A little outside 'help' is useful too."
  • PRESS RELEASE: Solid State Drive’s spokesperson Jake Arson has issued a lengthy remark about the lack of anything to say. This out-of-the-blue oxymoronic speech has left fans of the team bewildered, with many of them seeking answers from the team’s social media profiles. Rumors are in circulation claiming that the speech is an excerpt from Jake Arsons allegedly upcoming novel “Tabula Rasa”, however Arson still maintains an enigmatic silence.
  • PRESS RELEASE: Hello uhm has anyone seen Racina? We can't find her. We're hoping she'll show up to race but i mean we're terrified. The bite guard is gone, she broke it. She broke out of the straight jacket, she destroyed her cage. Look i'm not gonna lie we're terrified. The tracker. She remembered where the tracker was. Scratched it out. We saw nothing on thermals. Look if you see her please call us and hide, ok? Oh and do remember to check out our new BEGO BLOCKS Cariano Drivemans Gofaster Racests Blego Blocks Set, featuring a brand new minibig, the largest we've ever made!

  • Lars Ungar has a superb week and could have snatched pole if the front two weren't on such a tear. "A crew member saw some things about the track that we kind of put into place, made a couple adjustments. It really paid off."
  • Jay Wolff appears in "The Driver That Hit Me", a noir-romance film. It doesn't do particularly well at the box office, but he seems okay with it.
