Australasian Superskips – S2 R2 – Silverstone

Round 2 of the Australasian Superskips saw the drivers head to the International layout of Silverstone.  A field of 22 hopefuls hit the grid with the fantastic RRtv coverage joining the series for the first time.  With Bernie and special guest Kevin Henderson in the booth, the action out on track was great as always.

Check out the coverage below, including a live cross to me in the cockpit during the race.  My race is the second video below where you can also check out the live cross.  Quite an innovative season for RRtv with this and other new features highlighting their broadcasts.

Australasian Superskips – S2 R1 – Barber

Playing a bit of catch with covering this season’s action in the Australasian Superskips.

Season 2 kicked off in the second week of April and took place at the very challenging Barber Motorsports Park.  A great lineup to start the season.  A strong field of 28 turned out for Round 1 and there was a great mix of local and international driving talent on display.

One of the big innovations this season has been the introduction of the championship website, generously developed and hosted by Philippe Lebeyart using the same system as the 2K Cup.

The race itself was hotly contested with the usual mix of on track action thrown in with the challenge of making timely and clean pitstops.  Whilst RRtv will cover selected rounds of the season, unfortunately Bernie was unwell and unable to cover the event, so you will have to settle for my onboard footage and commentary below.

Make sure that after watching it through, you check out the full results and standings on the new AAS website here – LINKY


Australasian Superskips Round 8 @ New Hampshire

A great round of the Australasian Superskips held at New Hampshire saw another big field take on the tight ‘roval’ layout.  In what some might call a miracle, the whole field made it through the hairpin on lap 1 successfully, which spoke to both the standard of driving and the attitude of the people piloting their Skippies.

Certainly a fun race from my perspective with and enjoyable element of interaction with viewers while I streamed this race.  I had a good few laughs and a great night of racing.

You can check out the action below!

 

 


The Top Split – Episode #004 – Nim Cross Jr.

IRacing Chief Steward Nim Cross Jr. was my guest this episode.  Nim was able to give an excellent overview of the process drivers will go through when they lodge a protest as well as some fantastic insights into the philosophies behind the system.  It’s easy to tell that Nim is not only a fan of racing but is genuinely very passionate about what he does and really puts a lot of himself into his work in making the iRacing service and the experience of it better for us all.  He was a wealth of information and insight and it was a pleasure to have him on the show.

Australasian Superskips Round 7 @ Bathurst

A fantastic line up of 30 plus cars once again came out for the latest round of the Australasian Superskips. Mount Panorama played host to Round 7 of the championship with a strong field of cars and their drivers looking to tame the sacred home of Australian motor sport.

Personally, after a poor qualifying run, where I blew a fantastic opportunity of tucking in behind a faster driver and take advantage of their tow, when whilst half a second up on what ended up being my ultimate qualification time, I overcooked my run through Caltex Chase. This left me languishing somewhat in 20th position on the grid with nothing left for it but to put my head down and enjoy the fantastic ride that the Bathurst track provides.
