Pole with the weird accent, let's start with you. You're a I wish-times Realish Racing champion, it's your 5th season and you've won Maybe Soon Some races in your time here. What are your thoughts going into the new season?
I call these counts unfair because I can't brag about my single pole position. Apart from that, yay GTs! I like GTs. GT cars are familiar territory but it's a while since we've used them in a regular season with sprint races. How has your experience with the car so far been?
Haven't clicked with the Lambos immediately, currently feeling like I got along better with S397 GT3 machinery. Need more laps and more setup know-how. But there's now weight and tyres of proper width involved, so exactly what I've been missing after the Caterhams Between sacking, hirings and other moves, we've got a bit of a reshuffled grid this season. How do you think you and Kaibutsu will fare with this new order? How do you think you'll fare against your team mate?
Up until like a month ago I would've said we're dead equal performance-wise with @Lin1876
. Campbell however seems to be on a streak of excellent form recently, while my racecraft went rusty among all the IRL stuff that weighed on my mind and had to be taken care of last month. Once both of us are up to speed I smell some disruption up front may just be possible.We're taking a whirlwind tour of South-East Asia with some familiar tracks and some... less so. Are there any you're particularly looking forward to? Are there any you're dreading.
I presume Singapore means Marina Bay (I mean, how many racetracks can you fit in a single city state?) - racing from a spectator point of view tends to be dull there, but I've always enjoyed its awkwardness in the F1 games. The rest - neutralresponse.mp4What are your expectations for the season? The only way is up, right?
We've talked about talking me down before, Chad.
The first challenge to overcome is not on the track, actually - I'm still yet to figure out how to achieve a stable connection at the new place. Race starts happen to coincide with local cell tower peak loads, so LTE reliability goes to crap. Learnt that the hard way yesterday after attempting an GPVWC ITC start yesterday. I do have some ideas to work around this issue, and hopefully I can avoid a @tonyandmargaret
-esque sabbatical caused by poor internet infrastructure. If that's sorted, I'm just happy to be back racing Finally, I have literal inches of money that I need to invest wisely gamble. Who should I put it on? No YOU have a problem!
Gamble on gambling rehab. Or having your face fixed. Either's fine for me.
