Having received the terrible news from Le Mans, I'm understandably not in the best mood right now :(
Despite hurting myself hiking (again!), I'm going to make my debut in the GPVWC World Sport Series on Wednesday (19:40 GMT+1), with an appropriately updated livery. I might be racing in pain, but it's nothing like what Simonsen's family and friends are going through right now. My condolences go out to them at this difficult time.
Well, what a whirlwind few weeks this has been! The exams are (almost) finally over! :D This, of course, means that I get to do the things that I want to do!
This, of course, includes more parodies, which is a good thing, as my head has quickly restocked itself with ideas during the exam season! One involves a brilliant idea with a game from my childhood, stay tuned for that. That I'm certainly not giving up on, but my motivation to do YTF1 is down again :(
I'm also bracing myself for a possible sim-racing triple assault over the summer! I'm joining the GPVWC World Sport Series (basically a Porsche Supercup), starting on June 26th. There is also the possibility of a drive in the GPVWC Supercup (GP2-style), having been in contact with a team about that. Also, I'm returning to the GRC Touring Car Championship for another season! The infamous Milka car has, regretfully, been ditched in favor of a drive with another team. This was agreed long before Josh joined to race under the Team Shadica banner in the same series!
EDIT: The GPVWC Supercup team have unfortunately turned down my services :(
(All events will be broadcast LIVE on simrace.tv - the GRC events should be on Mondays at 20:00 British time (based on last season) and the GPVWC events will be on Wednesdays at 20:40 GMT+1. I may also be live-streaming them like I have done in the past. Also, I've set up a new YT channel specifically for my sim-racing activities.)
But wait... there's more! Since I started my retirement-that-turned-out-not-to-be-a-retirement I've been regularly entering livery competitions over at robsworkshop. Ryan became slightly smug a couple of weeks ago having received the news that one of my liveries had won. Putting Dyson as the main sponsor was his suggestion...
So... yeah, that's about it for now. Cya :)
