PROCAR80_40Grant Riddall – Winner

Q1: Monaco is about the complete opposite of the Avus. But does that make it a race track?

GR: Monaco is the complete polar opposite of Avus, so my answer is the exact same… with enough imagination anything can become a race track!

Q2: Smoke as a result of an overheating engine was an issue for many cars around here. Did you have an overheating engine? How did you handle/prevent the engine heating?

GR: I was! I was trying to limit how much I was smoking. My gear changes were not great and that was just adding to the temperature. Trying to catch Austin and limit and manage my temps was tricky!

Q3: And finally, on the podium, did princess Caroline really look this good?

GR: Wasn’t on the post race Podium. I was already off to Long Beach Vector illustration of cool glossy emoticon.

Austin Johnson – Silver Medal

The latest known whereabouts of Austin Johnson report him boarding a plane at Nice airport direction Los Angeles. The last status update on his current whereabouts reads something like:

“The Atlantic winds are high,
There’s only one virgin and she don’t fly,
And they can’t land the plane,
And they can’t get home ’cause of a hurricane.”1

We were thus not yet able to collect Austin’s answers. They will be added as soon as humanly possible.

Q1: Monaco is about the complete opposite of the Avus. But does that make it a race track?

TC: None of them are race tracks….Smile. One is good for drag racing and the other is good for car parades.

Q2: Smoke as a result of an overheating engine was an issue for many cars around here. Did you have an overheating engine? How did you handle/prevent the engine heating?

TC: I had used maximum radiator opening and also barely used the engine’s red line during the race. It cost me in lap times but it was in the rules of this championship and everybody should follow those. And not just do it when it is convenient🔝. I guess David Jaques had a pretty clean wind-shield at the end of the race! Smile

Q3: And finally, on the podium, did princess Caroline really look this good?

TC: We weren’t introduced, but I’m pretty happy to have been there, so close to her. Maybe Grant had better luck than me, you can ask him.
