The Indypendables is a team conceived from a collaboration of four independent teams: Kernowsport, Peachy-Bee Grand Pree, SpyroTechnimata and Team Butler GP. It was originally formed as a 4-car team for the Hyper Global Tourenwagen Masters championship, but when the format was changed to allow only 2-car teams it split into two smaller teams, Alfa and Beta. The split is merely a formality and the operation is unofficially counted as one.

After a disappointing first season in HGTM, which ended without a single podium finish, the team has gone on to score multiple wins, podiums and even two championships in the Gran Turismo 6 seasons. The Indypendables' finest performance came in the TURD Special Event, where Dan, TommyB and Icthyes all scored podium finishes while the most emotional moment was a one-two finish at Camino Viejo Extreme in OSCAR just a month after the departure of Butler258.

The Indypendables were also the first Really Rubbish Racing team to have their own Twitter account and their own merchandise.

The delicious Indypendables cake baked by PeachyF1

Brands Hatch Meet-Up

The Indypendables assembled for the first RRR meet up at Brands Hatch. It didn’t take long for the team to assume their rightful position, in the middle of everyone, just like the HGTM races. The team were also given their official Indypendables T-Shirts which were proudly worn for the rest of the day.

Sky Indy Car Jubilee Tree

During the Belle Isle Indy Car race in Detroit The Indypendables, along with Covamalia, trolled the Sky Sports coverage with a variety of Tweets about the Jubilee Tree in the studio. After mentioning the Tweets about ‘the tacky tree’ it was amusingly removed from the studio. During a red flag period Sky Indy Car cut back to the studio and paid tribute to the tree before reading out the teams Twitter names. Several members were known to have cried of laughter at this point.

The IndypendaCake

For the 2012 Canadian Grand Prix, team boss PeachyF1 made an Indypendables cake for a meet up event. The cake consisted of The Indypendables logo and four layers of colours. Yellow for Dan, Orange for Tommy, Red for Butler and Blue for Icthyes.
