Pre-Season Press Conference!

Postby Boovolari » 12 Jan 2012, 08:10

With the new season just a week away, its time to answer Chad's questions once again in the traditional pre-season press conference.

Image

It's time to go racing again! How was your Christmas break?

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?

Who do you see as the main title contenders?

As a special bonus, whoever gets the closest to the correct answer in Chad's Challenge question will win a mammoth 200 Microsoft Points to spend on whatever they choose, straight out of his own pocket!!!!1! He's a real big spender.

How many points will the championship-winning driver have at the end of the season?

My break was fun filled, lots of food, lots of fun and lots of crack

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?
Seeing as though I'm unlikely to be able to attend half the races not very high. Although I think I'll be able to be towards to higher end of the field when I do race

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?
RumblyLizard, team pride. Also Bookoi, back on track with the guy who just loves to touch me :?

Who do you see as the main title contenders?
Tomcheesey, Rumbly, and Flavoury of course

It's time to go racing again! How was your Christmas break?
It was awesome thanks Chad. Tonnes of family, friends, food and warmth. Was good to relax away from the track for a period, but now I'm itching to get back on it and get the HGTM under way!

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?
Without sounding too confident, I'd be disappointed if I don't achieve a win all season. I would like to be challenging for the top championship positions throughout, but I can't help feeling I'm going to be let down again by my own attendance, as this season comes at a busy time for me.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?
Flavoury and Rumbly for sure. As my team mate, it will be good to compare my own performance with Flavoury throughout the season as I feel we are very evenly matched. Saying that, these cars can be very unpredictable and anything can happen, so we'll just have to see about it all in the coming months!

Who do you see as the main title contenders?
Flavoury and Rumbly, and perhaps myself if I can keep good attendance of all the races. I think Shouty will be another one to watch too!

It was fairly good Chad, I guess. The bit after the christmas break was not so good, but then it never is, is it?

Chad wrote:How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?

I'd like to sneak a podium, but I'm not looking for race wins here, it's going to be a tough season in which I seeing myself being distinctively average. But as always, I have a Bookoi to beat.

Chad wrote:Who do you see as your main rivals this season?

Bookoi, and only Bookoi.

Chad wrote:Who do you see as the main title contenders?

It's going to have to be RumblyLizard, FlavouryRug and TomCheesey. It's going to be one of the three.

It was fairly boring, revision and more revision. I now have Shift 2 and it has an RS3100 Capri which made me very,very happy.

Chad wrote:How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?

Same as the boss,I'd like to sneak a podium. I predict it will be my first season without a win :cry:. Also, I'd like to finish the livery, as it's not near completion at all.

Chad wrote:Who do you see as your main rivals this season?

My team mate, I doubt I'll be able to challenge the top drivers.

Chad wrote:Who do you see as the main title contenders?

It's going to be Rumbly, Flavoury,TC and Dan.

I won't win any races, I wont get any podiums, so just scoring constant points.

Rest of the Team obviously, but mostly Alex and Pete and Dan, those three usually seem just ahead of me on track so i wanna beat them.

Who do you see as the main title contenders?
The usuals, Flavory, Rumbly, etc

Good, nice to have a chance to relax, looking forward to going racing again.

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?
Not very highly, I'll probably trundling round near the back most of the time. Goals for the season are to participate in a decent number of races (only managed 2 in season 3!) and score a top-ten finish.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?
The other rookies.

Rumbly, TomCheesey and Flavoury.

It was good. Filled with lots of snooker and a couple of karting adventures.

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?
With a new 25mb connection due the day before it starts, I think the problems I had last season should be gone. I've put a bit more effort into testing and started tuning and getting used to the car. I think I have a good chance this season and I'll be aiming for wins and hopefully a title push for myself and the team.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?
Tomcheesey suits these cars and Rumbly is always fast.

Who do you see as the main title contenders?
Tomcheesey, when up to speed, is quick in these cars. Then there's obviously Rumbly who I always end up scrapping with. I hope to be up there too. Smifaye and Shouty will have something to say on the matter too.

It was okay, didn't do very much.

Very, very, very low. Hopefully I can achieve a top 10 position (In a race, not in the championship).

My teammates

Rumbly, Cheesey, Flavoury. Perhaps even Dan and Shouty.

It was great thanks, Chad - eating, drinking and vegging out. I'm feeling recharged and can't wait to hit the track.

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?
HGTM cars are pretty wild beasts - I think the top guys will enjoy more of an advantage than in the past, so I'll be further from the front, but hopefully I can still sneak a couple of podiums. Wins, probably not.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?
That black and white guy with the long hair, as usual. Flob cropped up around me a lot in season three and Tommo seems to have sprung up from nowhere in testing too.

Who do you see as the main title contenders?
Rumbly is favourite on paper but I reckon the Cheeseman might be on for his first major trophy.

Ok, apart from the part where I was knocked into a coma for six weeks

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?
Not to sound too cocky but pretty good. I think I'm alright with these cars and I'd be disappointed if I wasn't regularly fighting for podiums. I'm not sure I have the nous when racing in the pack to mount a consistent title campaign but if things go well I might pick up a win or two. That has to be my main aim before I entertain any thoughts of challenging for the championship.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?
Tomcheesey, Rumbly and Shouty. I battled all three with mixed results in Season 3 and if I can get on terms with them more regularly I'll be happy. Flavoury had a disappointing time last season and I'm looking forward to duelling him too. I've still got some unfinished business with Smifaye too, if he's man enough to show up and face me. ;)

Who do you see as the main title contenders?
I've got a feeling this is going to be wide open, what with the reverse grids and all. Consistency will be key, and on that basis I'll plump for TC and Flavoury.

Nowhere near long enough Chad, it's been far too long since I was abvle to sit down and get back to the racing. Damn life getting in the way.

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?
I don't want to be last. I've done almost no practise with these cars, and they are near the limit of what I can drive with any kind of skill or ability.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?
Who thinks they'll be near the back of the grid.....them.

Who do you see as the main title contenders?
I think the organisers will be impressive so CheeseyRug for the teams title. Drivers wise, it could be any from 5. Flav, Tom, Rumbly, Dan, but I'd love to see someone surprise me.

Alright, quiet and didn't touch Forza at all during it.

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?
I seem to be a lot more competitive than I was in the 4zaMC, so I hope I can get in the top 10 often, and stay out of 11th place! So therefore I am aiming to get above 80 points this season, as that's what I would have had last season under the current scoring system.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?
Don't know, I'll go with those who finished near me in Season 3, so Mr.E & Rare Devil.

Who do you see as the main title contenders?
I'll expect to see the CheeseyRug Racing boys at the top in both championships, but can't count out most people really, especially Rumbly and Dan.

Very peaceful thanks chad, had a good time with friends and family and now ready to get back on the track.

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?

I don't believe the title is mine for the taking this season. However I feel very comfortable with the car and feel I can push it to its limits with some good results including some podiums and if I'm lucky enough, a win or two. I aim to be the top rookie but we'll see what happens, it's going to be close. Oh and to get the team up there as high as possible in the team standings.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?

Bookoi and I had a good battle in the last race of the F1 championship in Brazil. I would like to think we could have a nice clean season long battle here in the HGTM. It would also be nice to beat the team boss whilst he's in a different team too.

Who do you see as the main title contenders?

Flavoury, Rumbly, TC.

It's time to go racing again! How was your Christmas break?

Great thanks Chad. It was good to take off the racing shoes, don the slippers and find a pipe. I've spent the Christmas break not even touching my race pad and have merrily drunk myself into bed most evenings.

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?

Well its going to be a big season. I think i've got a good shot at the championship if I can find my mojo before the season starts although it'll be down to consistency and staying out of trouble. These cars are fragile and i'll have to be careful on the overtakes to do well.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?

A tough one really. I had thought that it would be smifaye but he won't be racing so often. Therefore it's the usual fearsome twosome - the cheeseyrug boys. No more 1-2's for them hopefully though.

Who do you see as the main title contenders?

Alex

Not too bad, got the Jurassic Park trilogy on Blu-ray so was very pleased with that, and the Star Wars saga too!

How do you rate your chances in the HGTM and what do you hope to achieve?

I think my chances are about the same as last season, probably will just get a few podiums as I'm still making a few mistakes - too many to win a race I think.

Who do you see as your main rivals this season?

After some racing tonight, and judging by last season, I might be muscling in on the Alex-Pete battle.

Who do you see as the main title contenders?

Flavoury looks back on form, so I'll say him and Rumbly.
