Latest post of the previous page:

Driving road cars in the snow is a valid test on how good you are at racing F3 cars. Huh, time to go Craigslisting for a Volvo 240 and make a career for myself in the UK.

Now that this seems to be going ahead, I hope it works out. Really do. The question will still be how much clout a title will carry.

Gosia Rdest said they also did a Race of Champions-like sim event as the final part.

Decker posted a BTS video on her instagram too.

Carmen Jorda missed the cut ;)

Which probably means something like:

She realized she wouldn't cut it, so she decided to jump ship before it got under way to save face (citing sponsorship issues to decline a fully funded drive....).

To quote my favorite actor: Man's got to know his limitations :haha:

Meanwhile Gosia Rdest tries to prepare for the final stage driving the Almeria track in video games. She only found one game where the track is :tongue:

The first f2 feature race in sakhir was a good one. A solid win for latifi who was able to match pace and tyre management. Ghiotto finished second with an exciting come back after a bad start from the pole caused by clutch problems. I look forward for tomorrow sprint race which will see schumacher starting from the pole position
