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....).

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

Emma Kimiläinen won at Assen. Which leads to the question:

has anyone who has given birth ever won a motor race at this level?

Lyn St. James don't have any children AFAIK; Michele Mouton retired from rallying when she started her family, so this could be a milestone.

Can't remember. Jutta Kleinschmit maybe? Don't know if she has a child.

By "this level" do you mean something akin to glorified club racing which is what this is? There's been plenty of mums who've won races at club level.

IIRC Lucy Rogers won a national FF race back in the 80's a Brands, pretty sure she had kids at the time, and she only stopped racing because her brother was killed at Donington, and many say she was way better than Pete.
