Should i keep doing these? 

 

I might only cover one race per week if so, as i'll end up taking too many photos again.

Yeah Man... I am disappointed that we didn't get one for the last two weeks :(

+ Agree'd - one race at a time is heaps. I know how much time you must put into this, you almost deserve something for your efforts...

 

Hope to you again for some NASCAR action

Nah it's all good, the likes and the comments are good enough for me. :)

 

Hopefully i don't run out of funny (if i don't find it funny, then i don't think it is funny - funny that).

 

The more times i write the word funny, the weirder the word funny actually looks.

 

What?

 

Oh, yeah the pix.

 

Right. You can get a pretty accurate sense of how things may turn out when you're racing NASCAR's on a track with more than two or three corners.

 

They call out the National Guard...

14752941377_89d8335a6a_b.jpg

 

Which is understandable, even the cars themselves are a wild clash of colours, number, logos and African Wild Hamsters. And don't get me started on the drivers... (mainly because i wouldn't know where to start).

14939500755_0a17418d75_b.jpg

 

GUESS WHAT. The race has just started. SkylineObsession is spinning his wheels. If you just said 'thats nothing new/typical', you win a prize.

14752825029_4f4dcc577d_b.jpg

 

Fourbeen's Ford had the brightest chance of winning the race. He's a colourful character. 

14939501665_199d35c267_b.jpg

 

Me sideways yet again. I swear i've never seen a straight line in my life. ~~~~~~~~

14939140682_b95dca06be_b.jpg

 

In a fit of pure rage, sidawg in the blue Chevy shot out one of my rear tyres because he was getting sick of driving through my smokescreen around every corner.

14936416051_1c9cf1dd92_b.jpg

 

The tone of the race had just turned very dark, and colour was riding in the back seat. Welcome to NASCAR. Triumphmad took the opportunity to pass a wildly laughing sidawg due to SkylineObsession's massive loss of control.

With the colour slowly returning the rest of the field was still relatively close.

14752833770_0791b67ff3_b.jpg

 

Well, most of us. argsy had some urgent business to attend to which delayed his race start; Fourteen people 'liked' his Facebook status declaring the race had started.

14939503885_c7fa03618f_b.jpg

 

my_zx6rr tried to take a shortcut, but used the wrong side of the track to do so. The Ford was really trying not to laugh.

14752834920_5f5b6f508f_b.jpg

 

Jeff Gordon cars number 1 and 3 were trying to make a blue Chevrolet sandwich, while in the background 'you know who' was just coming onto the front straight in his usual fashion.

14939504745_71a3559926_b.jpg

 

The fire crews at the track constantly rushed to the protected forest by the main straight, but the smoke was being caused by something else, every. single. lap.

14752836380_0cd1e9ae1f_b.jpg

 

Meanwhile, not much had changed at the front. There were still three cars ahead of the guy in fourth place.

14939505995_b1dc33f812_b.jpg

 

These guys weren't driving to end hunger, they were frantically trying to get as far away as possible from the smokescreen that was following them. Lest we forget those who remained behind it. They're in there somewhere. Poor souls.

A strong desire for M&M's meant SkylineObsession was pushing the car really hard to catch the colourful treats which were somehow attached to the car ahead of him. And really, really big.

14939506855_70489e8942_b.jpg

 

Things were a bit bland at the front of the pack.

14752893648_96a66066ef_b.jpg

 

Brett's M&Mmobile and Fourbeen's Farmableford suddenly reverted back to oval track spec NASCAR's, and refused to turn even the slightest of uncambered curves.

14752839110_4b77ded6f5_b.jpg

 

The Ford was taking no prisoners, so the M&M's were pushed to the side - this was a race, no time for snacks.

Translation on the sign reads: Wkid effi khdnswi oue udjs je~! (sorry, i'm not too good at reading Japanese :( )

14752894808_f05760de87_b.jpg

 

Triumph was still triumphantly ahead of sidawg2. He's got it. There is nothing at all that could go wrong now, the win is his! Why are you getting so suspicious that the next image will be of a Jeff Gordon car spinning? There are three of them in this race remember, what are the chances of it being the one right at the front!

14752895078_784f8682d1_b.jpg

 

Oh. Quite a good chance apparently. I can now see why you had suspicions that this may occur. Oh well, the race had a new leader now!

14936421651_61a44b3904_b.jpg

 

Elsewhere on the track my_zx6rr's Camry was unused to braking and cornering, so much so that a fire started to develop around the front wheels.The only express service this car was going to get was being sprayed with 11 small fire extinguishers.

swillisam's newly acquired second position in The Amazing Race was now in Jeopardy, with the Wheels Of Fortune not looking too flash, and would likely result in the Sale Of The Century when the car is sold to Spongebob Squarepants later on, surely adding to the Fear Factor of the upcoming 'Spin City' which you'll see beginning below this comment. 
(my original comment for this pic was going to be how he's taking a shortcut to get into 1st, but that comment was the Weakest Link and wouldn't make it to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, especially since he isn't hosting it anymore, so i took it Step By Step to avoid a Full House of Angry Birds giving me and my F.r.i.e.n.d.s 60 Minutes to restore some sort of Law and Order to The Bold And The Beautiful world of the Lost Community of Ice Road Truckers. Who have nothing to do with GT6 by the way)

14752896198_fbda00bc61_b.jpg

 

I decided to try some dirty driving, only problem was that i was the only one around me, so it didn't really do any good.

14752833369_52e62bcdb8_b.jpg

 

Ford vs Holden, the American version. swillisam was determined to keep Fourbeen behind him.

14916512506_6b6238d23c_b.jpg

 

But it wasn't to be, the Ford was just so much more awesome than the Holde.... Chevrolet. I'm not a Ford fan either. Not at all.

14752952777_2789149308_b.jpg

 

Even though it was the Camry on fire, the strange thing was that all the smoke was coming from Jeff Gordon car 2 of 3. It baffled the scientists watching the race more than the pure bafflement they had as to why they were there in the first place. And scientists are very smrt. Smart.

14939512225_8d000a7f73_b.jpg

 

At this point the firefighters had had enough of all the false alarms, and had returned home.

14752842530_2d0c39bcc7_b.jpg

 

Knowing the Ford was better than his Hol... Chevrolet, swillisam decided that he had no choice other than to take drastic (but completely normal for NASCAR) action, and helped the Ford return to the farmland.

14939513225_ff6e443b4c_b.jpg

 

And finally, SkylineObsession was getting so extreme with his drift angles that he ended up drifting backwards over the start finish line on the last lap. Fourty new tyre companies started up just for this race, and they all ended up profitable.

I try mention everyone who competed so that no-one feels left out. Even though some people probably do want to go unmentioned. ;)

 

Another week has passed, so here are more photos. If you like playing golf you'll especially like these photos of Golfs. :)
 
This is where we started the race from. They call this odd formation a 'starting grid'.
15015404855_d99215ba82_b.jpg
 
The ground camera was quite dirty.
14828759000_584740f803_b.jpg
 
Only a few of us opted to paint our race numbers on in black paint, the rest annoyingly used invisible ink. So as a payback i used invisible ink when it came time to writing down their payment for racing! Which mea... Hold on a sec, getting a message through the intercom from race control. ... What? ... Are you sure? ... So. ... Well. Turns out we didn't actually pay anyone for entering/racing, so obviously couldn't have written their pay amount in invisible ink. What did i write with it then? 
 
*At my 21st birthday party later that night*
 
Why has no-one turned up? It started two and a half hours ago! I'm sure i wrote down the right directions, even have the pen right he.... OH CRAP!!
14828759510_5927c028cc_b.jpg
 
There was an excessive amount of magpies during the race, and they even resulted in the race starting an hour and 45 minutes later than normal (if it normally started an hour and 45 minutes after 8:30pm, but it doesn't, so the race started at 8:30 again). This was eventually put down to the three silver chrome cars in the race, aaaand also the billionaires poker game being held in the clubrooms.
14828786228_cf3d11bce7_b.jpg
 
This flower was not chrome however, so the magpies and the billionaires left it alone.
14828759920_e6bea15858_b.jpg
 
During the shiney race, the chrome was reflected in a shine for chromey bling with lots of reflect.
15015406735_55655d02b8_b.jpg
 
While the track zig zagged up the hill in the background, the cars simply went straight past the camera.

sidawg in his shiny chrome car was up the front of the field, blinding everyone else behind because of the clean, shiny reflections from this shiny car.
14828788648_514bfce100_b.jpg
 
Actually no. He was following a cleaner, shinier, chromier, reflectier car driven by swillisam which was much more shiny, or rather in the lead because of its chrome shine.
14992411706_719693717b_b.jpg
 
It was... shinier even than the sky... and the sky was even shinier when it ... was reflected on the shiney ... chrome car which was ... incredibly shine.
15015045122_d418212f17_b.jpg
 
And... i... for shiney ... and where... reflections and ... huh? I ... um ........ for the thing ... chromeyshinereflect ... carrot ..... raceyshiner .... ... .. .
15012327621_3a467e33e4_b.jpg
 
AAAAAGGHH!!! Where did this completely unshiney car come from!! It's got no chrome at all! What's the deal!! *takes a few breaths* Humblest apologies people, these chrome cars just mesmerized me to the point of losing concentration on everything. Poor magpies have it tough. As does my drool covered keyboard. :(
14828686989_969f729731_b.jpg
 
Back at the front, things were moving. Well truth be told, they have been since the race started, but my point is that they were STILL moving. shaunxr6 in his bluemobile (like the Batmobile, but nothing like it) was trying to take the shine off the race for the chromies/chromeboys at the front.
14828881307_2537153716_b.jpg
 
They were going so fast that the ground was being forced towards the Golf's's's's like a vacuum effect.

Seventeen wide into a tight 90 degree or so chicane simply doesn't work. Especially when you can only have 16 car fields, and only four or five were approaching this corner at the same time.
15015048162_13fdd36345_b.jpg
 
All nine racers are visible in this shot. Most of them are turning left. No, your right, my left. No not your left, my left but your right which is right by the left side of your right hand. Alright? Oh... you've left.
15015412765_e4bb6cb395_b.jpg
 
OI! Stop, so i can get a better photo! I can't magically hang over you forever!
15015413145_172c52bdd0_b.jpg
 
Thank you. Much better. See, wasn't so hard, was it? You can go now. I need to fall to the ground.
14992418636_52ddc83f74_b.jpg
 
The chromers were busy reflecting on their race progress thus far, which enabled a couple of the non chrombies, shaunxr6 and BrettzOr, to take the lead. 
15015052252_84fda0b47c_b.jpg
 
However it appeared the chromemeisters had something up their sleeve, they were starting to drive together as a group...
15015416115_d58422024e_b.jpg
 
Still sitting back, biding their time. Waiting for an opportune moment to dazzle the leaders with 'The Chrome Effect', their secret weapon which became not so secret after they'd leaked to Wikipedia during the race which is how i know about it already, before they've had the chance to implement it.

*CHROZAM!!*
 
The Chrome Effect was suddenly used with full force, projecting swillisam, one of the chromefidels, up a few places, straight into the lead! This could have serious consequences for the race results! Someone contact the authorities!!
15015054782_f38711c6a2_b.jpg
 
NOW things are getting interesting, somehow the blue and gold Golfs have broken through The Chrome Effect affected leader and regained their places at the front. They're fighting back, the chromeblasters won't be happy about this!
15015055672_6ff90da42a_b.jpg
 
OOoooohhh, wait a sec. They have almost completely surrounded Bretts Golf Gold! Uh, i mean gold Golf. Could they be resorting to The Chrome Effect II? Surely not - that was banned decades ago for the sheer destruction it caused! Can they do this?! my_zr6rr in her orangy red Golf appears to be trying to block their attempt, will this blocking maneuver be enough?!?!
15015056412_b25b46a68d_b.jpg
 
Number 7 is driving as close as possible! Protecting number 5 from The Chrome Effect II's sheer danger!! Lets hope this works out people, the last time this happened, in 1979, the world was left in shock and some countries are still cleaning up the mess!!! We can't allow this to happen again!!!!
14828697859_48d072f985_b.jpg
 
IT WORKED!!! my_zr6rr, in the orangeyred Golf, has averted disaster and the race is back on again! swillisam, one of the chromeboogeys, has even developed the common 'chromeshow.exe' error (which affects the chrome vehicles contact ability) and is driving right through AdeGamer, another chromemishmasher! If this error continues, The Chrome Effect II cannot work, as it needs three chrome cars with full contact ability! They must have really been going for it if they managed to force this error!
14828775800_d893b7c610_b.jpg
 
It has left shaunxr6 feeling a bit blue (da ba dee, da ba die), but he'll surely be thinking of his fellow non chromians and of ways to combat the chromejesters' potential future attacks!
14828801078_7cf190d785_b.jpg
 
Back into formation again. The chromebalites are likely thinking of their next move, but it won't take much at all for Chrome Effect II to be re-attempted, given the position of the Brett's yellow Golf!

Just tuned in? They are still traversing around this really long radius corner. Wait a few seconds and they should be almost clear of it.
15015422475_d1f5852115_b.jpg
 
*CHROZAMbzzt!!*
 
WOAAHHH, they used The Chrome Effect for a second time!! But wait, it appears that it was a partially faulty application as Brett and his gold Golf got bought up the front instead of AdeGamer in the third chromeagillyians car! This error has only been seen twice before, and the diagnoses both times was that 'TCE' was used at over 100% of its recommended force! These chromesingsongers are furiously battling for the win! This is nuts!! I need something better than popcorn for this!!!
15015423775_408744f83b_b.jpg
 
Yep, clear as day from another angle - the overloaded Chrome Effect definitely caused the wrong car to be transported! They will not be happy!
15012342041_5b89e010bf_b.jpg
 
End of the race! The chromepeicebenders fail in their 1 2 3 attempt and get 1st, 3rd and 5th instead! You have to give credit where credit is due though, they definitely gave it a shot at a podium chromefest, but crafty opponents and a still faulty Chrome Effect system just let them down too much. Next time then guys, but please - don't attempt Chrome Effect II ever again. You're too young to remember what it did last time but i can assure you that those chromeexploders would have regretted that decision had they lived to see what it did.
14828803258_6072c9a46b_b.jpg
 
Having been left behind from the shockwaves of The Chrome Effect, the number 7 Golf finished in 6th place, this far behind the leaders;
15015060732_a4ef3bc141_b.jpg
 
sssbassil in the second blue Golf was wary of the three chromealabasters from the first time he laid eyes on them, so kept a steady pace near the back of the field. In hindsight it was a good choice, as he didn't get caught up in the chaos at the front of the field.
14828779230_4ef9a1358f_b.jpg
 
While right at the back, SkylineObsession in the matte green Golf had been off the pace for a few laps, while searching the pits and sides of the track for the purple number 83 Golf of fourbeenevil, which hadn't been seen for ages. 
15015424605_165b684bec_b.jpg
 
Suspicions and a post race investigation discovered some shocking news as to the whereabouts of the purple Golf. The chromesplashbackers had removed it from the race, with the dangerous Chrome Effect IV...

Gonna attempt to do a race report this week, but if i'm struggling too much i might just go mental. ;)

 

May lose track of who's who though since there are limited colours and no driver numbers.
