-Welcome to a new edition of Motor Nation! Aaron Coleman here. The second race of the ACCC has taken place today, at Brands Hatch GP, and we have a special guest with us today, Airborne’s CEO, Kacp…(Aaron looks at the script) scratch that! We’ve had a last minute change. Madoka Matsusaka, Airborne’s rep, will be with us tonight. Thank you for coming, Madoka.
-Thank you, Aaron. Unfortunately our CEO couldn’t come for several reasons, the most important being that we’re developing two cars who still need to be greenlighted for commercial and legal reasons.
-That sounds like a lot of work indeed. But about the race. We’ve had some nice dogfights today, first and more notable the battle for the first position between Benevenstanciano and Rossi. What do you think?
-Well Mr. Coleman, as we watched a few minutes ago, the dogfight between Rossi and Benevenstanciano has been pretty intense. They were constantly overtaking each other. On one side we saw the power of a MR car in the right hands and on the other side we’ve got a very skilled driver with extremely well tuned car, that is, the Criceto. I’ve seen another Criceto racing on mountain roads in Japan and damn, when you tune these cars properly they’re quicker than supercars.
-That explains why Benevenstanciano dominated the first race. We also had a pretty nice fight between Harrison and Gaillard for the third place, which was ultimately taken by Harrison. Some people say she’s got a lot of talent and is developing into an extremely skilled racer.
-Harrison and Gaillard, you ask? Those two guys caused a nice mayhem in general along with the first two - basicaly the first four places were the battleground of luck and “who will be first” tactics - I’m pretty sure I saw a bump or two, but those were minor and nothing special happened. I’m surprised however how close Galliard was to Harrison - a gap of one second may not seem small, but it isn’t too much either. Also, on the other hand, I consider Erika Harrison to be a rising talent, so if you’re watching this, Harrison, don’t miss this opportunity.
-Yeah, she seems to have quite some skill for this. I wonder if in a few years from now, we’ll see her rise to the top of the ATCC or maybe the AMWEC. But let’s not forget about the midpack!
-Mr. Coleman, midpack? Well, those drivers in the middle… Olsen, Fierer and Yeong-ho were driving so close that I’m surprised that they didn’t crash into each other. Seriously. Sometimes gaps between these cars could be, hm, five meters maximum regardless on the side and position. So, band of people risking it over there. Skilled too, because every normal driver would just crash after like 4 laps of continous driving like that? Look at go-kart tracks and how amateurs drive on there.
But, let’s move slightly upwards. Frank Martin, I think I know this guy from when I was younger. He had a nice result at the end and was pretty close to Gaillard. He’s known as a legend, and, I guess, it can still apply to him.
To end this almost monologue and let you speak, I’ll say that most other drivers from midpack were average at most, but Brindley seems to be rising talent despite a bad position. But, well, she’s 18 and that’s forgivable, she still has many things to learn. I wasn’t an steering wheel mastermind when I was 18 either.
-And then the three last people…Paschalidis, Greene and Mitrasca.
-Paschalidis, Stephenson and Greene? Gosh, not sure if they had their bad day, or they’re just horrible. Some of their mistakes could’ve been easily avoided. And it isn’t like I want to bash on them, everyone makes mistakes, but they were just driving like amateurs. Seriously, if you three are watching this, you need to seriously train for the next season or another racing league, because betting on luck or just waiting until everyone else crashes isn’t a good idea.
