Race 1 - 2022

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: Coming off a season which saw Yooperland Speedtraps win the Aeon Constructor's Championship, and both of their drivers promoted to the main series, Fireplug Fitzpatrick feels revitalized and ready to go. "The feelings between last year and this are 180 degrees different," Fitzpatrick said. "Last year, I didn't know if I was going to make it through a single race, much less the season. But as we progressed, and we had some solid performances, I started feeling like I could compete at a high level again."
  • PRESS RELEASE: After a successful season that saw promotion to the main series, Gunther Heindrickson enters the season looking to make noise in the iStock Championship Racing Series. "It was good to get seasoning for a couple years in the Aeon Series, but now I think it's time to run with the big boys," said Hendrickson. "The road will definitely be a tougher one for Fireplug and myself, but as the saying goes, 'Tough times don't last, but tough people do' and we may be the toughest drivers in the series."
  • PRESS RELEASE: After finishing just outside the medals last season, Yellow In Front Forever is determined to top the constructor's championship and a take both of its drivers to the top 5. After a long hibernation the team is rested, resolve and suspension stiffened, drivers and inhibitions relaxed, pit lanes and commentary booth scent-marked. We have forgiven the transgressions of last year but warn any driver looking to reignite old feuds that we have not forgotten. Our focus is as steadfast as our clothes are musty; we are in season and this is our season.
  • PRESS RELEASE: With the start of a new season and a renewal to his training, Airen Slipper feels confident in his abilities. "Let me be quite honest, last season was a happy disaster. I did not succeed in obtaining a place in the podium, but I was able to get the necessary practice in to once again feel almost at my best. Despite the immense amount of adversities, I was able to secure a respectable position. This season I'll make sure the podium is mine."
  • PRESS RELEASE: Ragnar Slipper, carrying the torch of his family, proved last season that he possessed the same spark as his brother. Now he promises more. "All of this time I have been overshadowed by my older brother, but I finally proved that I can be just as good as him. I will push forward and regain the title of champion for our family. The Slippers will prevail! No skittering at the top, only victory!"
  • PRESS RELEASE: Despite his underwhelming performance in the squared circle at YeeCW, Solid State Drive’s Hunky Davis is excited to get back behind the wheel of his racecar at this season opening race. Throughout the offseason, the Solid State Drive technology team has performed a great number of mostly-classified modifications to the sports car in order to raise performance even higher, however rumours has gotten out that some of them are of an “unreasonable” nature. Journalists report that SSD no longer purchases motor oil, and the Slippers have mysteriously lost track of a shipment of space lube after SSD stopped renewing the oil contract.
  • Corey Creek qualifies decently but is pulled up on a tyre violation and plummets down the grid as a result.
  • Angelina Muir is interviewed shortly before her final lap. She is brimming with enthusiasm for the season but notes that her contract is up at the end of the season. What will happen for her?
  • Jack Carmichael gets a huge boost from featuring in the top 20 of the inaugural iStock Power Rankings. He qualifies extremely well.
  • Practise results: Temporary improvement for Foggy Cockburn, with a permanent improvement already for Ariel Pryde.
