Lin1876 is a Scottish driver in Really Rubbish Racing, and founder of the Kaibutsu team.

Lin made his Really Rubbish Racing début at Dan Thorn's TURD special event. His first full season was SECS, season 9. Since then, he has been seen in and around the midfield, with some appearances near the front tempered by many others near the back of the field. His best result is jointly a shock podium in his 149th race at the Ultimate Truck Showdown special event and an even less expected 3rd place at the second round of the 2014-15 GT Endurance Auto Racing Series season at Sepang. His best championship finish was 9th in the Formula R Festival.

Early Life

Lin had an unremarkable childhood which was largely spent with video games and Scalextric.

Motorsport Experience

Virtually

Lin has maintained several racing games over the years, including F1 World Grand Prix, F1 Racing Championship, Grand Prix Challenge, F1 04, F1 05, the Colin McRae Rally series before it was ruined, Mario Kart, F355 Challenge, and various others. Recently, he has partaken in Assetto Corsa and Project CARS, alongside those used by Really Rubbish Racing.

Real Life

Lin's real life motorsport experience has come entirely from public karting facilities, specifically ScotKart in Clydebank. In a group of friends with very limited interest in motorsport, he is comfortably the fastest and most consistent, despite being mildly traumatised by a scary accident which saw him go on two wheels and then sideways into a rather solid tyre wall at about 25 mph. He has been twice told off for using both pedals at the same time after being told not to.

At Alex's 30th Birthday Karting Extravaganza, the club's first real life event, Lin finished squarely in the midfield, in 15th.

Driving Style

Lin prefers safe understeer to any kind of oversteer, but most importantly likes a car that is reliable. For this reason, he counts the Seat Leon Touring Car and the Formula BMW as among his favourites, and the Lotus Exige, a car with no known good set-up, and Arbarth 500 as among his least favourites. Though generally a fairly safe, if slow, pair of hands, he is known for the occasional wild lunge and silly error.

Rivalries

TheScottWilkes

An amazing lap-long overtake in the History of NASCARRR.
Duelling for the lobby 2 win at Indianapolis.
Battling to avoid the indignity of last place in the Lotus Exige.
4-wide at Indianapolis. Deep breath!

Lin's most persistent rival across various categories has been with the club's resident Mr Happy, TheScottWilkes. It began towards the end of Lin's first season, season 9, when the two spent much of the final races together (sometimes literally, like at the Nurburgring). However, things escalated soon after. At History of NASCARRR, the two engaged in a lap-long, side-by-side battle over the minor placings at Road America which both described as "amazing".

In Season X, the two fought over the lobby 2 win at the first race at Indianapolis, with Lin taking advantage of a last lap mistake to take the win and 8th place overall despite being caught up in a shunt at the first corner. The two clashed swords a few more times during that season, though Lin was generally further up the field in many races. The following season, the two found themselves at the back of the field, and spent both races at Iberian battling over last place.

During The Third Day of Crashmas, the two were in contention for the overall win, and fought for the lead of the fourth race for several laps before a collision with noc75 on the final lap dropped Lin behind. However, he recovered to take the crown.

Bookoi

Caught in the POWA tag team with Ajokay.
An epic scrap over 8th place.
Three wide at turn 8!

Throughout the RlyRTCC2 season, Lin found himself racing against Bookoi in several races, with notable battles at Gothenburg and Istanbul. In the first race at Gothenburg, Lin came up against a POWA tag team but eventually snuck past while being lapped by Blairy to claim a valuable 8th place for reverse grid pole. Two events later, at Istanbul, they two fought an intense battle what that at the time was 8th place. This time, though, Bookoi won out, but retirements ahead meant Lin still claimed the reverse grid pole. In the second race, the two went three-wide at the infamous turn 8 with Ajokay, but Lin fell back and eventually finished 10th.

The battles were less frequent thereafter, though there were some notable scraps at Okayama in IMFR and at Surfer's Paradise in the V8 Australicars.

Kroffie

A last lap lunge at Estoril.
Early close running at Hidden Valley.

At the tail end of Season PC-2, Fifer Kroffie joined Junior Motorsport, becoming the second regular Scottish driver in recent club history. The two countrymen quickly discovered that they were both around the same pace over the course of a season, with only one point separating them at the end of Season PC-3, IMFR, even though they only occasionally battled each other directly on the track. They did, however, have two notable scraps at Estoril and Okayama.

For the V8 Australicars season, the two teamed up at Kaibutsu and again engaged in a season-long battle for supremacy, with Lin taking advantage of a strong final round to wind up six points ahead. Again, there were notable on-track battles at Eastern Creek, Barbagallo and Surfer's Paradise.
