Season 35 resume

In Division 2, our team encountered a series of formidable challenges emanating from our development department. These tribulations rendered us ill-equipped to contend with the formidable Handbrake RD outfit, a dominant force in the first half of the season, executing a masterful strategy that secured their title triumph in the latter stages, all while maintaining a prudent financial course and minimizing sporting exertions. Kudos to Nello for orchestrating a promotion while shoring up our fiscal stability, possibly staving off potential losses.

As we look forward to the upcoming season, the anticipation is palpable. It promises to be an epic clash for championship supremacy. Particularly, with Rydmark poised to unlock his latent potential and achieve parity with Daloya, we harbor high hopes of mounting a campaign to regain our rightful place in Division 1 come Season 37.

Up and down

goes the rating of the desingers - maybe we lost one or two designers ... how ever - that means that we can not build "Zero Chassis" anymore and therefore will continue in division 2.

The hope is that the board eliminates the Zero chassis. A second strong and light engine supplier would spice up future seasons as well - worth considering.

Good start in season 33

Pika Evo race was able to secure a podium place in a nail biter season opener with two safety car periods. Without those saftey cars even a win was possible.

This is a strong signal for the season when keeping in consideration that Pika does not use the hyped super chassis "Zero" but a fiery Glumanda chassis. With some luck and less safety cars at unpleasant moments Pika might even win one or more races this season and get closer to the goal to be promoted to division one.

Divison 2.4 Championship battle going down to the wire

The battle for the championship in Division 2.4 is going down to the wire. After 10 races two teams are equal on points.

Both Arrowpoint Racing and Caldas F1 Racing have 285 points going into the last race of the season.

This is the 3rd season in Division 2.4 for Arrowpoint Racing and securing the championship would be a formidable price to top off many months of hard work. Caldas F1 Racing was demoted last season from Division 1 and they will be firing on all cylinders to return to the top league.

As the last race approaches it seems that Arrowpoint Racing is a bit on the back foot as Caldas F1 Racing has won 7 out of 10 races this season and seem to have the upper hand with one car which is driven by their #1 driver Ferrán Fernández Vilella. However Caldas spilled many points during the season. They missed one race, one car ran out of fuel during another and last race was hampered by their top driver spinning and losing 17 seconds during the race. To make matters worse, their top driver was stuck behind his team-mate for almost the entire racing, making catching up to Arrowpoint in the remaining laps impossible.

So, who will be the Division 2.4 champions and secure promotion to the big league? We'll find out next Sunday.

Bye bye Team Mirafiori

The answer of the question which was not asked - "Can management be extremely stupid?" can be answered now - and it is an astonishing "yes".
The is no other way to explain why the principal of Team Mirafiori applied for other jobs and find himself "on the street" when trying to revert the mistake.
On the bright side the team principal has now more time to spend on the former "hobby team" Superfly R4C3 which might even win the div 3.3 this season.

Good luck to Paul who stepped in and hopefully completes the task to bring Team Mirafiori to division 1.

Season 31 review

not much competition, but tuff competition - that is the quick review of the season
we made some mistakes with tires and fuel and had some highlights, especially when competitors struggled- but in the overall we would have needed more consistence and still would have finished 2nd. Meeseks was to strong to have a real shot, but it was partially a good fight.

With new parts we hope that we found the parts needed to raise up to div 1 and provide the material to our drivers so they can shine at their brightest as well as we hope they deliver (and do not waste start positions and points through spins ;) )

good luck and a lot of fun for season 32, with no refuel, yay

Fujimaro Yamanaka retires

After 12 seasons with Renttu Racing, Head Mechanic Fujimaro Yamanaka has decided to retire.

Under his tenure, in these 12 seasons, Renttu Racing has had incredible run, winning seven Division 1 Championships and positioning 11 seasons (of 12) on the Top3.

He will be missed.

Happy retirement Fujimaro, that was pure japanese perfectionism we did see during the years.

Season 30

Season 29 went well for Team Mirafiori with an astonishing 3rd place, 2 victories and some podium finishes.
Season 30 tests do look promising for an even better result, but of course those tests may not be representative since some teams did not show the pace on a single lap.
The main question for the season, how fast can we improve on the weak spots, which are many - and will the drivers evolve?
When everything works out it might be possible to win the thing

2nd win in a turbulent season

Tan was able to snatch the 2nd win this season in div 2.3 with a risky 4 stop strategy, giving him razorblade sharp tires to take victory while Wivina ran out of fuel due a miscalculation.

In the mean time the time gets short in developing next seasons car, which might be another grap pile, as team principal Philip E. states. As it apears this pile is not that slow, sometimes.

April 3, 2022 09:56 pm

First podium in division 2

Might not sound impressive, but in the first season in division with a strong competition it is worth a side note. Wivina Megroedt had a great 3 stop race when at the end the tires lost all performance. Still she was able to keep Jenda Deduch on place two until in the last lap the performance drooped to almost 0 and she had to carry the car to the finish line to secure at least points. Wel done Wivina.

The livery of Team Mirafoiri was not yet confirmed by officials so the team will continue using a generic livery.

Team Mirafiori promoted to division 2.3

Rumors are not always fully true - Team Mirafiori, formerly known as FM Superfly GP - was able to finish 2nd and got promoted to division 2.3.
First test lap show a semi decent pace which is not yet representative.
Principals Philip statement:
"Time was short last season and we are happy to have the car ready for some basic tests. This season is for securing a decent result in the championship and continue working on the car to be - the goal is to win division 2.3 in season 31, maybe earlier. At the moment the impact of the way parts can be designed are not yet optimized and there are many things we need to learn. The drivers seem to be doing well and we do not feel to much pressure for this season. Financially the season is secured and we are optimistic for the future."

Rumors confirmed: FM Superfly GP sold to Team Mirafiori for 1BC

FM Superfly GP will be sold to a consortium with the name "Team Mirafiori" and therefore will have to reenter division 3 after a fulminant first season in division 3.3. The last race can still change fortune in regard of the final place, but as principal and team manager Philip E stated place 2 will most likely be the result, hence you never know in motorsport. The team name may change, but the structure as is will remain the same - there is not yet a decision on who will drive in season 30, but season 29 Tan and Schlupp are set. Once the new headquarter is open we will expand research and development to be ready to rock division 2 in season 30, maybe div 1 in season 31 - who knows

January 21, 2022 02:41 pm

No progress on new car, clock is ticking - will Superfly refuse to get promoted?

The season is ending in a couple of weeks and Superfly is still in lead, hence the principle is not convinced that getting promoted to div 2 is the right move to make.
"It is open, but not looking to well atm. 2-4 weeks are not enough for a small team to generate the workforce needed to bring a car with semi decent parts on the track. The question is another season in div 3 to find the parts and persons to compete in div 2 or being lost in div 2"

Rogerson fired because of financial disaster recovery program

The financial situation cost many good jobs at Lucky Fips R242 after fans stopped or barely pay supporter fees. This cause that Goel left the postion as chief mechanic and now Rogerson who had a contract for the rest of the season.
"I am very sad that we had to let go Rogerson, but the bonus payment we agreed on where based on fans paying fees as well. Without those fees the weekly balance will, or would drive or team in bankruptcy, or worse, in the hands of corrupt share holders. Both situation we need to avoid. We wish Rogerson a good rest of his career and are very sad that he will not be able to win a division 1 championship with our team. This also should be a warning to any young driver who thinks he need to earn more than Hamilton" - so the team principal Philip Ödlandere

August 19, 2020 04:56 pm

Season half time

A brutal season is in half time. Rogerson is able to deliver while Maister still struggles with the car which makes it hard for him to come on track. Nether less he will continue even rumors tell that he might be replaced by one of the hungry junior drivers waiting for their shot. Bauwens and Gradley demand to be ready for the sharp tank. The team need to make a desicion soon, Tommacher is closing in fast (actually should be already on p8 if it was not the non F1 compliant calculation of the standing. Pozos 7th place in the weather chaos of the first race in Fürst is the better position...) However, it is very close between Lucky Fips R242 and Tommacher.
On the lead we have a thrilling fight for the crown with three teams in the postion to take the title. Who will make it? 5 more races to go - my personal favorite is Team Destroyer

Alpenring declared too dangerous

The newly constructed Alpenring circuit in Austria, which will be hosting it's first race this week, has been branded dangerous by the Team Destroyers personnel. The comments come after a series of incidents during testing where several reams have suffered from broken car parts, particularly suspensions, due to the harsh nature of the circuit, with some cars having crashed heavily into the barriers which resulted in the bad injury to double drivers champion Bartolome Verges Soler. The team manager Adam Eggbeer had this to say:
"Bartolome is in a stable condition in the hospital after his huge accident on Thursday. We would like to thank the track marshals and the medical team both at the circuit and at the hospital for their speedy response times and medical care given to Bartolome. We ran the rest of testing with the drivers taking it easy and staying off the kerbs. The whole team have had discussions about the safety of the track and the drivers are very strong in their opinions that it is unsafe. As a result, we are not sure about our participation for the rest of the weekend as the safety of our drivers, track marshals, and spectators are paramount."
