MNL Season 7 Race 8 @ Interlagos

Another great turn out for round 8 of the Monday Night Lights with the series heading to Brazil for the affectionately named Interlagos track.  A very popular track that brought out a great field and fantastic driving.  The racing was hot up front and throughout as the drivers looked to take advantage of an unusually cool track and made the most of the great layout.

Check out the race replay below, brought to you again by RRtv and follow the official standings on the Monday Night Lights section of this website.


MNL Season 7 Race 7 @ Donington Park

Round 7 of Monday Night lights was run at Donington Park on the National layout tonight.  A track configuration that has proven quite popular with drivers over the past couple of seasons in the Skip Barber category.  Another high Strength of Field saw a great standard of drivers line up for the race and the action on track was equally impressive.

The local Australia\New Zealand club drivers were well represented by the usual suspects and RRtv once again brought the action to the viewers at home.  So check out the race replay below and follow the official standings on the Monday Night Lights section of this website.


The Top Split – Episode #003 – Matt Malone

This episode of The Top Split sees me take a look at the world of online streaming with Matt Malone, who is one of, if not the top iRacing streamer on Twitch along with his team at Grip TV.  It was a fascinating insight into some of the concepts involved and it was great to have Matt on the show.  He also took a spin around Okayama to take on The Top Split Leader board challenge and set the time to beat for all my future guests.

If you’d like to find out more about Matt and the Grip TV team, I thoroughly recommend heading on over to his Twitch channel and that of Grip TV itself using the links below.  There’s also a great bunch of content over on Matt’s YouTube channel that you can also see in the links.  So head on over and find out what all the fuss is about!

I’ve also put a link below to the short documentary we spoke about during our chat called ‘The World’s Fastest Alien’.  If you want to see how the famed Greger Huttu went on his visit to Road Atlanta to drive both the Skip Barber and Star Mazda cars in real life, make sure you check that out as well.  It was a really interesting little insight.

Thanks for tuning in to the show.  I’ll see you for more iRacing action soon!

MNL Season 7 Race 6 @ Road America

Round 6 of Monday Night Lights saw the championship move to Road America and saw a great race.  It also saw the return of the RRtv coverage after the Christmas hiatus.  The drivers put on a fantastic display for the broadcast with a leading pack of 6 drivers running all sorts of lines side by side for almost the entire race and no less than 4 drivers leading laps during the race.

Fantastic again to see the MNL race draw out a top quality field for the top split with the Strength of Field once again in the top 3 for the week and providing a great platform for the local drivers making a tilt at the official championship.  This was despite the field missing a few of the more notable regulars, including returning series champion Enzo Canta and stalwart regular Kevin Henderson.

Without wanting to spoil the race, make sure you check out the broadcast replay below courtesy of RRtv that shows the tightest finish in MNL history in what was an amazing race to watch and call.  For full championship standings pop on over to Monday Night Lights section of this website.  But, for now, wrap your peepers over this fantastic race and come back next week for some more great MNL racing!


MNL SEASON 7 RACE 3 @ IMOLA

Season 7 of Monday Night Lights continued at Imola this week for Round 3 of the season.  It was an amazing turnout of driving talent once again.  With a Strength of Field of 3,760 the MNL race obtained the highest SoF for the second week running.  There was a great mix of new and old faces and you feel the excitement.  Perhaps one of the biggest indicators of the quality of the field last night was just how many Top Split regulars were pushed down into the second split.  The likes of Kevin Henderson, Brad Parkin and Jason Wilmen to name a few.  Great to see Jason back on track for MNL.  He’s now chasing Kevin for the most starts in the series after missing the first two rounds.

Without spoiling the outcome for those who have yet to look at the results, It was fantastic to see a good mix of local and international talent up the front, with the local guys really taking it some of the best drivers in the world.  MNL really has become a great platform for local and overseas drivers a like to have a proper go at the official series overall, with big points on offer each week.  That of course over and above the glory that goes with taking out the MNL season itself.

Once again, Bernie and RRtv are still on hiatus.  So my shabby attempt at solo replay commentary is what we have to look through some of the action from what was an outstanding race.
