Race 4 - 2022

iStock Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • PRESS RELEASE: With the smashing success of the previous race, Airen Slipper's worth as a racer is once again proven to still be enormous. The manic grin in the driver's face as he goes around was remarkably unsettling though, according to his fans. It is rumoured that one remarked on the fact that the red paint on Airen's car's bumper was dripping but turned silent after the grin was turned towards him. No one came forward to comment on the veracity of this rumour.
  • PRESS RELEASE: The Lusitanian Blues have made a comeback, having taken first place in the latest week despite the disastrous results of the first two weeks. Fans expect great things from the two Slipper siblings now that they are once again getting the expected results. Ragnar Slipper had only this to say in this week's press release: "The time is coming, the pesticide has been sprayed. The Slippers shall reign. Beware the lights, or your head might crack. Your mind could become Wonky..." After looking at an indeterminate point in space, as if seeing something else, he turned around and left.
  • Drew Breezus is interviewed after qualifying. "We had some problems with the car at first, I think you saw that. But we got it ironed out for the most part."
  • Flash Finley requires a major equipment change just before race, after qualifying. This drops him down the grid majorly.
  • Avianna Muir has turmoil within her crew and it seems to have unsettled her.
  • Jay Wolff seems pleased. "Last time I was here, there were some issues but today everything fell into place, and I was lucky enough to do really well." Jay came 16th last year.
  • Ariel Pryde has a very poor week. "Every driver on this track has had a week like this at some point. It's part of racin'"
  • Victor Lucky has a great week and seems surprised. "It's like they say in racin', you never know; so I guess this was our week to shine."
