Conquest Motorsport International is a virtual racing team participating in series held by Really Rubbish Racing.
The outfit's name was born from the late '90s, thanks to the use of the term "Norman conquest", and was originally the name of the Fantasy F1 team started by founder Craig Norman.
The team started from humble beginnings. It all began in a shed in Hertfordshire, and thanks to an injection of cash from long-time sponsor, supermarket chain Waitrose, it has now moved into a warehouse complex not far from F1 World Champions Red Bull. To say that they were getting a bit antsy that a rival was in the area would be an understatement.
After missing the first round of the Season 9 Support Series thanks to "sponsor commitments" (ie, a late night shift at the local Waitrose) the team debuted at Catalunya to little, arguably no, fanfare.
After Storming83's lacklustre display at SECS (no giggling), he fared better at FARTing, taking the team's first official scoring position by finishing 10th in lobby 2 and 18th overall, nabbing 3 points.
This was added to at Conquest's first racing experience on home soil, in Round 3 at Silverstone. Sporting a nostalgic British Racing Green livery, Storming83 held off new rival Lin to cling on to 20th overall and another point to the tally, making it 4 in two races.
Round 4 was missed due to yet another sponsor commitment with Waitrose.
Returning for Round 5, the signs were positive after a front row start next to series leader TommyB. This was soon wiped out after a first corner collision, and despite soldiering on, Storming retired the car due to lag issues while in second-from-last place.
Cruddy Number 2
Conquest have plans to run three Ferrari 333 SPs for Cruddy, despite never preparing anything over 160bhp.
It has recruited (tentively) TheNormanator23, a rookie, and RRR queen Emma Bracegirdle.
Bon Deuxième Anniversaire
Again, despite it's lack of experience in all things Le Mans (none of the team have ever been to France, let alone race there), Conquest is still planning on running both LMP and GT Aston Martins on the hallowed endurance track. Honest.
