I guess you all saw this coming really.

This pertains to anything racing cars and bikes but probably will be mostly NASCAR and F1 really.

I mostly just watch sports car racing now but I'll try and sneak in some NASCAR stuff.

Some actual news/discussion and not memes: Magnusson and Grosjean will be out of Haas F1 after this season.

Yessss!
I do a ton of sim-racing. Gran Turismo and Project Cars 2!

Curious to know if any of you JVers are on either of these. Would love to race w/ you (PS4) ^^

Sticking to the topic, I mostly watch F1

bit of a shame for Magnussen, I doubt he'll get a seat. I always admired him right back from the McLaren days. it's a great thing his starts are being applauded more and more by F1 on Instagram and what have you. I feel like going to Haas hurt him more than it helped him, however.

Grosjean, on the other hand, I think is lucky to have stayed with Haas so long. with the connections to Ferrari he could've easily been out a while ago, but plaudits to Haas for keeping it respectful and not becoming another Red Bull. no doubts, Grosjean is a decent driver, but with a career like his and that 2020 Haas car, it'd be a miracle if he gets a memorable sendoff. I don't expect him to be back.

I think I saw somewhere that Grosjean had a lot of sponsorship money, so that is why they kept him. I would have liked Magnussen to stay, but the team needs a fresh restart. Maybe Magnussen can use some of that Jack and Jones money to get a ride.

I play a bit of Gran Turismo as well, although I don't have PSN, so maybe we can race by comparing lap times. Smile
And I pretty much only watch F1 as well.

Do you have the Lewis Hamilton Time Trial Challenge DLC?

This may or may not be big motorsports news, but Lewis Hamilton just passed Michael Schumacher for most wins in F1. Lewis, it's James... Well done!

Ah darn, I usually play PCARS2 on PC. I used to have GTS but I sold my PS4.

Also Algarve is a wonderful circuit. Hope they come back sometime.

In the third to last race in the NASCAR season, Kyle Busch wins and extends his one win per season streak. Just for the memes, I was also kind of hoping for the team orders ("Kyle, it's James.") to come in, where Busch lets Truex win to advance to the Championship 4. 

Also in NASCAR news, Kyle Larson is reinstated and signs with Hendrick to drive the 5.

Martinsville is insane.

Kind of dumb how one single specific race out of an otherwise dominant season could just not make you champion.

Also heartbreak for Bottas at Imola.

Eyyy, I assume you mean PS+? That would be fun Tongue

No, I don't have that DLC, unfortunately. I ended up getting Assetto Corsa instead of the DLC, haha.

Also, nice to see how far safety has come in F1. If it weren't for the improved safety tech, Grosjean wouldn't be here 😬

I thought the 2018 season was intense, but this one is on another level. Everything has aligned to place the Top 2 on even points. It's do or die today. No matter the result, I'm sure this season won't be forgotten anytime soon.

For me, games like Gran Turismo 2 and Need for Speed 3 Hot Pursuit, is what taught me how to become a better driver in the real world.
