Did you ever get my ratings? Because I checked a couple days ago and it never landed in my "sentbox." Just wondering, cause I sent them, but I'm not sure.

Overall pleased with the run.

Schneider livid on radio with teammate Schmitt

Right after his teammate Lukas Schmitt drove him into the wall on lap 1 ending his debut very early, Klaus Schneider made quite the scene on his radio. "Was zum Teufel hat er gemacht? Verdammter Idiot." ("What the f*** was he doing? F***ing idiot.") When he climbed out of the car, Schneider was reportedly quoted saying "Er muss seinen Kopf aus seinem Arsch. Ausgerechnet er sollte wissen nicht, dass in Runde 1 zu tun." (He needs to get his head out of his ass. Him of all people should know not to do that on lap 1.")

Schmitt apologetic on radio

Lukas Schmitt was quick on his radio to apologize about the incident with his teammate. "Tut mir sehr leid. Ich wirklich bin. Ich traf den Randstein aus der Kurve und stieg in ihm." ("I'm very sorry. I really am. I hit the curb out of the turn and got into him.")

Changes Coming to the Series in 2013?

The big news following the California Grand Prix were whispers that the two-car per team, one chassis and engine per team format that had been used by the series in 2008 and 2011 could return next season.

Ishikawa scores podium in debut
Akira Ishikawa and FAC Motorsports team really impressed in their Formula Overdrive debut at Sonoma by finishing 3rd. When asked about the race, Ishikawa, whose doesn't know a lot of English yet, said this through team owner Frank Azure, who knows Japanese.

"The car just got better as the went on. It's a shame that we couldn't contend for the win, but it was a good day none the less."

When asked about Ishikawa, Azure said the following.

"She has a lot of potential. I wouldn't have brought her to America if she didn't. She knows how run on road courses, but we will have to see how she does on the ovals. I think she'll have a great season. If only we could get her to learn English. Thank god I know Japanese."

Alessandro Rossini glad to be back behind the wheel

After a years separation from motorsport, Alessandro Rossini has regained his motor legs in his debut Formula Overdriver. Rossini, son of former Formula Overdrive pilot Roma Rossini, made his thoughts loud over his twitter, @AMRossini48; " Glad to be back behind a wheel, missed open wheel racing..."

Rossini was also heard to have said that he was "not yet ready to fight for a top 5" but once race fit will be able to "compete for a win".

Upon climbing out of his #16 Lightning Plugz car, young Italian Fuoco Volare had this to say about finishing 2nd in his debut in the new Formula OverDrive series:

"Expect to hear this a lot more as the season progresses," Volare stated. "Now Volare must find and make sweet love to a lady of lucky proportions."

Team Format Confirmed; International Races in 2013?

Hanmore officials announced that in 2013, the Hanmore Formula Overdrive series will return to the previous team format, in which two drivers drive for each team, with a reserve driver, much like what is seen in Formula A and the TM Master Cup Series.

Another new item of note, series officials are looking to expand the 2013 calendar into Australia, Canada, and someplace in Europe.

Rossini Sport hope to bring Formula Overdrive to Italy
After the announcement of an international calendar through the 2013 season, Roma Rossini released conformation that he was hopeful to bring the Italian Grand Prix into the series. Through his website he wrote, "Italy is a place where motorsport is a beloved act. The care and passion for motoring events here in Italy is equal to that given to our beautiful woman, and our football. It would be beautiful if we could bring that passion into this series." Rossini also commented on the new team format, "2 car teams are expensive, but it gives more opportunity for new drivers. It is possible to use one seat as our first driver, and have a second seat ready for a budding hopeful. It should be good in 2013."

Does that also mean that the cars will sport similar paint schemes as well?

Cody Keaton and Sulinder Pushanda Called to Race Control

Race officials called Cody Keaton, car #9, and Sulinder Pushanda, car #12, to race control after the Hanmore Milwaukee 100. Officials were not happy with Pushanda dumping a lapped car off of a corner. "Pushanda was lucky he only took himself and the 9 out", said race director Scott Arknap. "If he took out more lead lap cars with that little stunt, he'd have been parked [for Green Valley]." Penalties will be announced shortly for both Keaton and Pushanda.

Very nice commentary, pennst. Really enjoyed the race. By the way, you pronounced Chaud's name slightly wrong, but it's difficult to explain and not a big deal, so it's fine. Anyway, like I said, loved the race. Keep it up Very Happy

Pushanda slams officialdom

After comments that Hanmore Formula Overdrive race director Scott Arknap, Sulinder Pushanda didn't have very nice things to say about it. He stated, "These damn exectuives from Hanmore don't know a damn thing about racing. Cody (Keaton) was all over the (censored) track. Who do they they are, Come on, this is a joke, he clearly came down on me. He had pleanty of room up there. I hope the officials actually get some common sense, he should be getting penilized."

Ok, I have decided to open signups for the Hanmore World Championships at the Texas Motor Speedway. ALL drivers, series regulars or not, will be eligible for the $10 million dollar prize. Drivers from other series (ARLA, TMLT, and Dash Cup encouraged, I will take Master Cup drivers I do not prefer them over the other series). Duncan will provide the chassis for the crossover competitors.

(OOC: This is indeed a very obvious ripoff of IndyCar at Vegas. However, the intention is for this race to be an exciting, clean race without tragedy.)

"All The Buzz" is, well, All The Buzz!

With Gordon Sting's win in the second event of the Hanmore Formula Overdrive Series, All The Buzz Racing is creating quite a stir. Sting, who won a thrilling last lap shootout to win by 0.02 seconds over Alessandro Rossini. That equated to roughly a little less than half a car length.
"First, I want to thank Alessandro Rossini for a fantastic finish. It was fun and clean. See, it can be done. I'm also very happy to get the win for ATB and Brown Hornet today!" Sting exclaimed. "And almost just as importantly, I finished ahead of Fuoco (Volare)."
Volare finished 2nd last week, but 12th today. With the win, Sting moves into the series lead, 8 points ahead of Rossini. Volare is currently in 7th, 13 back of his ATB teammate.
"I'm here hopefully showcasing my skills. I've won races in two different series now," Sting stated.

GLM drivers finish 4th and 8th respectively; Owner shares views on race and the Hanmore All-Star Event

GLM drivers Patrick McNeil and Jeff Fischer both ran well in today's race. McNeil led coming to the white flag, but was passed late and had to settle for 4th. Fischer, meanwhile, who suffered mechanical problem in Sonoma, came home 8th after running up front early on.

GLM owner, Jim More had this to say about his drivers' runs:

"Well, Patrick and Jeff are good drivers and they showed that today. It's unfortunately that Patrick got shuffled late, but that's racing. It was good to see Jeff get a top 10 though after the problem they had last race."

More also gave his thoughts on the Hanmore World Championship event in Texas.

"I hope the officials know what they are doing with this. Especially with the high speeds involved at the track, safety needs to be the #1 concern. My brother was seriously injured in an open wheel series race at that track in 2003 and the crash was caused by having too many cars in too tight a space. So, I just hope the officials don't go overboard with the number of entries."

GLM has put in the entries forms for TM Lights driver, Ryan Griffin, and Jim's brother, Michael More Sr. to enter the Texas event.

Alessandro Rossini couldn't have hoped for better

The young 21 year old of Como, Italy was quoted to have claimed he "could not be have been happier with a better result." Rossini, who now sits 2nd in the title race after claiming another top 10 finish, losing out on victory by only 0.02 seconds is now aiming to take the lead of the championship. "I am loving these cars, they work beautifully. I hope for a win, that would do me good for my future," claimed the ecstatic Italian, "I hope for continued results, a championship victory is based on consitency not victories."

Sovero Yohans and Team Arrested, Banned from Formula Overdrive

Sovero Yohans, driver of car #22, and his crew members, were arrested on Saturday in Missouri after they attempted to rob three different banks armed with a toilet plunger. They were taken into custody and declared mentally unfit to drive, and service a race car.

Hanmore officials banned the team from the league, and have accepted a new entry in their place, the #72 driven by Cliff Raymond, with Hot Lunch Food Services sponsorship.

(OOC: Okarai and Rovenami were the same person. BANNED)

Driver is in Serious but Stable Condition after Violent Crash in Test Session for Texas All-Star Event

Regional Touring Series driver, Ryan Griffin, is in serious but stable condition after experiencing one of the wildest crashes in Formula Overdrive history. Griffin, 21, as well as fellow GLM drivers Patrick McNeil and Jeff Fischer had traveled to Texas to test their cars in preparation for the Texas All-Star season ending event.

According to eye witnesses and the team, Griffin had just left the garage area and was attempting a mock qualifying run when the car cut a right rear going into turn one. The car which had topped out at 220mph (OCC: only guessing here) spun out and became airborne with the rear wing and back half of the car hitting the top of the catch fence. A small flame did erupt but put itself out. The car was a total loss.

GLM owner, Jim More did release this statement about a hour after the incident.

"I'm glad that Ryan [Griffin] was alert and talking with officials. I don't think I've seen a wreck like that here since my brother's crash in '03. Just thankful for the safety work done on these cars, they really did their job today. I'll say one thing though I'm giving serious 2nd thoughts about entering him in the event."

The full extent of Griffin's injuries have yet to be disclosed.

I'm not very happy about that press release at all, given that the Texas race isn't going to be as bad as everyone expects.

That wasn't the focus when I wrote it. It more was about my driver lack of inexperience and that it was a test session. So, obviously, things change between a test session and the actual race.

I didn't mean for it to come across that way. I was just suppose to be an unfortunate accident.

New 2013 Rumors? Want to get a team on the grid? Post your rumors!

Arjanien and Gonzalez Will Not Return to ClarTech

Tommi Arjanien and Recindo Gonzalez will not return to Formula Overdrive in 2013. Arjanien is reportedly looking to find a ride in stock cars, while Gonzalez has a desire to move up to V8 Champ Car. ClarTech apparently needs sponsorship when their two incumbent drivers contracts run out.

Texas Grid Size to be 38?

Hanmore chairman Eric Riggett spoke with the press before the Missouri Grand Prix. When asked how big the field will be for the Hanmore World Championships, Riggett stated that they hope to have 38 cars for the finale, and every one-off driver will be in a competent car.

Big Schedule News for 2013

Hanmore also announced that races will be held in Australia, Portugal, Germany, England, and Russia next season. The tracks have not been announced, although Portuguese officials support a race at Porto, which held a Formula Overdrive race in the inaugural season in 2008.

REGINA WILL RETURN NEXT SEASON, VOLPI AND GRI TO REUNITE ONCE AGAIN?

With rumors about the 2013 Formula Overdrive season already under way, Gravity Racing, Inc. has already confirmed that Regina McCloud will return next season, due to her having a lifetime contract with the team. With FO returning the two-car per team rule, GRI is currently searching for a driver for the second team for 2013.

Also, the one-manufacturer per team rule will also return next season, and there are rumors swirling that Volpi and GRI will team up once again like in the 2011 season. The two teams have developed a great relationship over the past two seasons, mainly with GRI team owner Packer Carroll's affiliation with the Volpi Racing Team as one of its drivers. While the rumors have not been confirmed, there is a strong possibility of Volpi and GRI joining forces for 2013, under the name they used in 2011, Volpi Gravity Racing.

PACKER: Cyril Volpi and I are definitely talking about it. We would certainly like to revisit the success we had in 2011. So, hopefully, we can come to an agreement for the 2013 season.

GLM to return in 2013; McNeil for sure, Fischer questionable

GLM confirmed this afternoon that Irishman Patrick McNeil would return to the team next season signing a 5-year extension today. However, Jeff Fischer's future is still up in the air. Fischer has been reported on saying he wants to consider his options for next season.

Jim More, GLM's owner, has stated that he intends to look at his options as well and welcomes drivers to inquire about the ride.
