Race 3 - 2022

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • Robert Hicks appears to criticise Manne Love for causing a crash last week, which is replayed over and over on sports TV as they try to talk up any issue between the two.
  • Rain Winterson has constant arguments and conflict within the crew, which badly impacts her speed.
  • Andy McEvoy is pleased with his success. "I always challenge myself to do well, but especially here. I had a good week, looking forward to a good race."
  • Cheech Kong's crew are also at each other's throats and it appears that there are problems within the Flyhawks paddock.
  • Lefty Louis and Ollie Blackstone have a collision during qualifying and this has a big influence on Ollie's qualifying. This may be a dramatic week for the pair.

Remember that each turn is 10 miles, and is represented by the skill being checked and the group of drivers being checked. With regards to groups, 1st - 7th is TOP, 8th - 19th is MIDDLE and 20th and below is BOTTOM.

TURN 1 - DUEL - Boothby Grafoe decides against a duel - he could only move up one place and the first laps of the track are tricky enough as it is!

TURN 2 - TROUBLE - BOTTOM - As we were saying! Conor Westfall gets smashed into the wall by Urist Tannhauser. Adam James is collected in the wreckage. Winter McFish gets completely sideways. Nathan Dunkleman squirts around the issue. Al Houns avoids trouble. Bargain Bill avoids trouble. Harold Coins is fine. Kiki Roseburg is nudged to the side and spins. Mason Shelton rolls on through, unscathed. Arthur James gets absolutely thumped. Valkyr Slipper loses no time. Luke Holtren escapes. Tamauria Spiders just wiggles past. Chad Blackstone just wiggles past. Remy Lurue escapes. Kerry Mackinaw escapes trouble. Rain Winterson spins three times. Cheech Kong suffers minor damage. Lord Madness loses a wing mirror and begins to smoke. Conor Westfall manages to repair and rejoins at #39. Urist Tannhauser manages to repair and rejoins at #39. Adam James fails to repair and is out of the race. Winter McFish manages to repair and rejoins at #38. Kiki Roseburg manages to repair and rejoins at #38. Arthur James manages to repair and rejoins at #38. Rain Winterson fails to repair and is out of the race. Cheech Kong fails to repair and is out of the race. Lord Madness fails to repair and is out of the race.

TURN 3 - YELLOW FLAG - Cheech Kong is out, as is Lord Madness.

TURN 4 - YELLOW FLAG - Rain Winterson is out, and Adam James' day is also over. Everyone else involved is now running.

TURN 5 - DUEL - Dustin Mahoney decides against a duel. LA Brick decides against a duel. Neither would have gained anything.

TURN 6 - RARE - BOTTOM - What a horrendous start to the race! BIG TROUBLE IN THE BOTTOM GROUP - Dunkleman crashes, as does Al Houns, Bargain Bill, Harold Coins, Mason Shelton, Valkyr Slipper, Luke Holtren, Chad Blackstone, Kerry Mackinaw, Conor Westfall, Urist Tannhauser, Winter McFish, Kiki Roseburg and Arthur James! Only Tamauria Spiders and Remy Lurue escape trouble, but none of the crashes look hugely damaging and with a pit stint next turn everyone looks set to carry on racing.

TURN 7 - PIT TURN - Lefty Louis (4) gains a boost from fast pit. Paul Puffin attempts to take the lead from Brad Mills. Paul Puffin (3) takes the lead from Brad Mills.
