  • Wizzo: Hi Greg, you're better off telling us about your concept in a written post on the forum for all to see. I'm sure you'll get a few opinions.

  • Greg_82: Hello, anyone online to discuss?
    November 06, 2017, 05:51:35 PM
  • Greg_82: the best would be to go on skype to discuss the concept, would that be possible with some of you guys?
    November 06, 2017, 12:31:49 PM
  • Greg_82: I'm new and I would like to know if some of you would have some time to spend with me because I'm launching a new concept about F1 and I would like to have your idea

  • Greg_82: Hello

  • Scott: No hassle, I just thought with all the merry go round, it might be easier to simply use a couple generic slots.  But anyhow, that's great Dare.

  • Dare: Hartley and Gasly have been added to GG
    October 24, 2017, 11:28:40 PM
  • Scott: Paul
    October 24, 2017, 02:36:11 PM
  • Scott: I would say we use Hartly as Jenson Button on the GG and Gasly as Paur Di Resta...any nay's?
    October 24, 2017, 02:36:03 PM
  • Scott: For example we would need to add Gasly and Hartley for Mexico
    October 24, 2017, 02:34:54 PM
  • Scott: We could add in 'Driver 1' and 'Driver 2' and then make announcements in Shoutbox to tell people which driver sub is which (in the off chance that there are two).
    October 22, 2017, 02:15:55 PM
  • Scott: Not that I think he would actually make top 8
    October 22, 2017, 02:07:30 PM
  • Scott: I wonder if we shouldn't have one or two generic driver slots for substitutions, like Hartley
    October 22, 2017, 02:07:02 PM
  • ChrisCurtis: Well that’s an interesting start!
    September 17, 2017, 01:05:06 PM
  • Wizzo: Sorry guys I won't be around for the race chat as I will be watching the race on catch up
    September 17, 2017, 10:58:19 AM
  • Scott: Only around for lap 1-2 and then have to run today, but I'll duck into chat for the first few minutes

  • cosworth151: Does Alonso's 35 place grid penalty mean that he'll be starting from Parabolica?
    September 02, 2017, 10:09:21 PM
  • Jericoke: Wizzo, my strategy was that everyone else would forget so my 9 points would vault me into the mid pack.  Thanks for ruining that!

  • Wizzo: Don't forget there is another race this weekend. Get your Grid Game predictions in!
    September 01, 2017, 11:24:03 AM
  • ChrisCurtis: Good luck in the Grid Game everyone.

The King gets black flagged

  • Richard Petty is known as The King of NASCAR. 7 championships, 200 career wins (second most is his long-time rival, David Pearson, with 105). He is far and away the most popular driver in the history of the series.

    The Darlington Southern 500 was run as a throw-back race this year. The cars used paint jobs from the classic era and even the TV commentators wore vintage clothes. King Richard got to take an honorary lap behind the pace car at the head of the field. He drove his 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX, the car he won 27 of that season's 48 races in.

    One problem - he kept going! They finally had to black flag him to get him off the track.

    Long live the King!

  • That's kinda awesome.

    I can imagine Mario Andretti wondering why he never tried to do that.

    He doesn't have to. He's still going driving passengers in the two seater...  ;) :)
