GT5 : Real world racing general discussion

10 Replies 310 Views Created 25-03-2012

Hi all,

 

With F1 in only it's 2nd race, Aussie Supercar V8's due for it's 2nd event, BTCC close to starting, and WRC having run just 2 races, I was thinking it might be a good time to open up an open discussion/thoughts thread regarding real world racing championships.

 

Feel free to add anything you like with regards to any thoughts/comment about any real world championship you take an interest in.

 

I''ll start.

 

Regarding this weeks F1 in Malaysia.

Being just slightly Aussie biased, good result for Webber, particularly with both Vettel and Button out of the points.

Also good that Hamilton only got 3rd.

But hey, that's an Aussies perspective.

 

Perez, Perez, Perez.

Coulda/shoulda won.

As soon as team management suggested to be 'cautious', he looses it on a corner, runs wide, and destroys all his good work, and more than likely top spot on the podium.

Saying that, 2nd is a brilliant result, but still, it seems that Sauber should have had it's 1st win, if only the damn team management had sent a positive message over the radio, instead of a weak as p*ss 'be careful' message.

 

But hey, that's just my thoughts.

Re: GT5 : Real world racing general discussion

Messy race, shame Perez had an incident that lost him time, I think he just made a slight error rather than any mind games going on. Interesting result but I don't think it says a lot about how the season will go. Nice to see Kimi in the points and flying!!!!! I reckon by the end of the season Hamilton will win the title comfortably, schumi will get a pole and a win and Mclaren will take the constructors.



Go Lotus F1 for 2012!

Re: GT5 : Real world racing general discussion

Very dissapointed that things went pearshaped for JB but hey it was his own doing hitting Narain Karthekeyan (spelt wrong no doubt).

Was more dissapointed that Perez didnt pass Alonso near the end I dont really know why i just dont like Alonso and to see him passed would have made up for JB not doing so well.

I think and hope one of the Mclaren drivers will win the title this year hope fully its JB, but i guess we will see when they get back to Europe and there are some significant upgrades on all the cars who is winning the development race.

Re: GT5 : Real world racing general discussion

Kinda related.

 

Just finished watching 'Senna' on Blu-ray.

 

Great movie/doco.

 

Very sad.

Imola '94 ... not a good time or place for a Formula 1 driver.

 

Highly recommend you take a look.

Qatar MotoGP Qualy

 

Lorenzo gets pole.

Stoner 2nd.

And for you British fans Cal Crutchlow on the 1st row in 3rd.

 

Shocks:

Hayden smashed Rossi on the Duc's.

Pedrosa only 6th.

 

Good to see Yammy Tech 3 with Crutchlow and Dovi fairing well.

 

But, and let's be serious now, ....... C'mon Casey.:smileyvery-happy:

Wow ... apologies.

Apparently every sentence is worth a new spoiler tag.

Guess I kinda stuffed up somewhere along the line.
