Invictus opens down under – Round one review

The calm and breezy atmosphere of Melbourne’s Albert Park suddenly transformed with the stutter of an ignition switch as the first official races of the new Invictus Racing League season took place this week.

Pre-season had been tough for some drivers’ and successful for others but after gathering crucial race pace data it would be certain that the various Invictus formula grids would all be slowly starting to work out the early season favourites.

Australia is a tricky circuit to master and with slow tight corners in the first two sectors opening up into the fast and flowing turn 11 and 12. The track would see who was on the pace early in the calendar.

No Assists

Monday night saw the opening race for Invictus as the No-Assist championship arrived first at the Albert Park track in sunny Melbourne. Pre-season had seen the battle re-ignite between Speed_Queen80 and Sargent_009 but with driver’s such as Nikki9095 and J03L-v520v waiting to engage in motoring combat with the previous dominant forces within the league there was certain to be fireworks on a Monday night.

The league saw the added bonus of the tier two driver’s who were new to no-assists and would be making their competitive debuts. They certainly wouldn’t be looking at just making up the numbers and after strong performances in pre-season from driver’s such as Scopefielder and Humbostone. There was an added element of excitement as the cars waited for the green light to officially open the season.

Qualifying was accompanied by a beautiful blue sky and perfect track conditions for the drivers but it was the tier two driver of Tony-Y in the Mercedes who took a superb pole position over four tenths of a second ahead of another new tier two driver in Humbostone in second.

It was a disappointing qualifying from the Toro Rosso driver’s in Nikki905 and J03L-v520v who ended up in ninth and eleventh respectively with Scopefielder the only driver to not set a time after crashing out on his first quick lap.

The race started with a literal bang for Tony who had a terrible launch off the line and found his car slipping down the order as the cars hurtled towards turn one. The pole-sitter ran wide at turn one and his silver arrow came back across the circuit and unfortunately started a chain reaction which saw a number of driver’s in requirement for a new wing and set of tyres but luckily with no retirements.

Only a matter of laps later, Philip_mcfc making his return to the league was running well in second position lost the car on the exit of turn 12 and it was pre-season favourite Speed_Queen80 who was the unlucky party, as his Sauber came across the track it was directly into the path of the Williams as both driver’s retired with extremely damaged cars. Phil was taken to the on site health centre as a precaution but was released later that day with just a few bruises in what was a scary accident.

 

Philip_mcfc was involved in a nasty accident with the wall and then Speed_Queen80 that totally destroyed the car.

 

It was his Sauber counter-part BoyBetterKnowSB (Scott) who made full use of Phil’s retirement as his move on Humbostone gave him the lead and ultimately he came away with a well deserved win after a superb race long battle with the Renault driver behind.

Scott picked up the first winner’s trophy and the lead in the championship as he was followed home by tier two driver’s Humbostone who had a hugely impressive first race to collect second but it was a storming drive from Scopefielder who came from the back row of the grid in 14th to third in a frenetic and highly enjoyable race.

The race saw a plethora of incidents and talking points that will no doubt bubble into interesting rivalries throughout the season but with Phil, Speed_Queen and Nikki9095 all non finishing they will certainly be on the attack in Bahrain next week.

 

Equal Performance F1, F2 and F3

After a postponement to the scheduled Tuesday night performance leagues it was the equal performance driver’s who would have to make up for it in style.

F1

F1 saw a first pole position for TamworthFox as the Ferrari driver set a blistering time that saw him duck into the 1m19s ahead of Ap0ll0 in second. Whilst some quick drivers were left further down the field such as Sambamkid and Jos_Heinssie they would be looking at making a charge through the field using the perfect strategy.

The race started well for Tamworth, however a huge snap of over-steer offset the car out of the final corner and into the wall allowing the rest of the field to go on the offensive.

The grouping caused chaos on lap five as Scopefielder who had assumed the lead took to the grass at turn 11 allowing cars through as further down the grid, the recovering Tamworth spun on the exit of turn 12 and hit the wall ending what had started as a very promising race. This brought out the virtual safety car and a battle of strategic minds as pit walls decided whether to pit under the VSC or use up the life of their tyres and push harder at the end of the race.

The battle came down between the three of Sambamkid, Apollo and Aleskiller150 who with three laps left were split by three seconds. It was the Toro Rosso driver in Aleskiller who made use of the front two battling into the final sector to cruise past the Mercedes of Sam and with one lap left to go all he had to do was follow Apollo home who had picked up a time penalty but with the Renault of Apollo leading into the final corner it would be a photo finish as the cars finished just one tenth apart.

 

Sambamkid and Apollo had a great battle but it would invite Aleskiller150 into the fight and ultimately after a collision into the final corners allowed him through

 

 

The penalties came back to bite Apollo as he dropped from a first place on the road to third but it was a first win of the season for Ales who had a magnificent race to make it from tenth on the grid to the win. Sam took second on the podium as he bids for another successful season behind the wheel of the Mercedes and Apollo who looked set to win the race brought his Renault team eight points for third.

F2

F2 was already shaping up to be a superb season even before the teams arrived in Australia but it was the newly promoted Betrayer46 who high on confidence after his championship winning campaign in F3 last season started with a flag to flag victory.

Having put himself on pole he ran a superb race to take the honours and another 1st place trophy to add to his growing collection. He was chased home by Humbostone, however as it was looking likely the lead would swap with two laps to complete Humbostone spun and allowed Betrayer a free run to take the chequered flag and the compliment of 12 championship points.

Kieran (FabulousChicken) came home in third in his return to Invictus whilst newly promoted WaveIntel drove to a well deserved forth position after hitting thr wall in qualifying meant he started the race in 11th.

The battle for between NickLJThomson and mj_coop was the highlight of the race as the two had a superb fight over fifth place with coop finally getting the move done on the final lap. Unfortunately for last seasons F3 driver a time penalty demoted him back behind Nick as the two engaged in an embrace after the race and jovially laughed that they couldn’t wait to re-engage what looks like a strong line up to this seasons championship.

 

F3

F3 may be the final of the leagues but after last season it proved that it offered some of the most competitive and exciting racing anywhere and that certainly was the case in Melbourne for round one.

Qualifying saw the Toro Rosso team mates of Fascone and Mike take home a one-two which delighted the pit wall. The betting odds on the title were wide open at this early stage but with driver’s such as Tejuarr, SirSpud and Gazzaman96 all within the top 10 it was due to be an explosive start to the race.

The top nine were split by less than half a second and top 14 by less than a second in a riveting qualifying session and as the cars lined up on the grid there were a lot of itchy fingers waiting to drop the car into first gear and be in the lead heading down into turn one.

The race started cleanly but a poor getaway for xMIKExSI saw him fall from second down to sixth with the rest of the field all fighting for position.

There was a disaster for the Renault team as a stationary Nitrogash was collected by oSteven002 who then became a roadblock for his team-mate in Captain_Stiff as the unlucky driver was a passenger and endured an early end to his race. Whilst Nitro and Steven would carry on and try to recover some distance after lap two pit stops.

 

Paul0_Pabl06 on his way to victory in F3 chased home by the Red Bull of Gazzaman96

 

He was joined in the media pen early on by one of the pre-season favourites in SirSpud72 who lost control on the exit of turn 12 and hit the wall resulting in an early blow to the Mercedes driver title chances. He was upset about his mistake but with Bahrain being a famously strong circuit for the Brackley team they will have their eyes firmly on the race in the desert next week.

On circuit after the stops it was Paul0_Pabl06 who had assumed the lead with a superb first stint which gave him prime opportunity going into the second half of the race. The Mclaren of FerociousDan and the pole-sitter fascone who had lost time after a long stint on the ultras sat behind him in second and third. However, a late mistake from Dan saw him drop out of the top three and well down the order.

The race came to an exciting conclusion as Gazzaman96 who had closed down Paulo superbly in the final laps but it was a tenth too far as the two were split by 0.118s at the line. Allowing Paulo to breath a sigh of relief and celebrate a excellent victory.

Fascone came home third with a strong race for the Toro Rosso driver and Tejuarr started to feel the rhythm early as he picked up fourth after a disappointing pre-season.

Credit was due to xMIKExSI who spent 26 laps on a set of soft tyres to come home seventh.

F3 joined the rest of the leagues by offering up some incredible races and with a near photo finish for the win in round one, it only sets the rest of the season up as must watch.

 

 

 

That rounds out Invictus’ visit to Australia for this season and it couldn’t have been a more impressive start.

The leagues were on top form and with unbelievable racing, overtakes and incidents galore it only proves that next week in the desert that you cannot miss a second of action as Invictus Racing League goes to the gulf state of Bahrain.

 

Join us next Monday at 8pm (UK) for No-Assists who wait for the five red lights to go out and start round two.

Pre-season wrapped up.

In the midst of the beautiful Austrian hills, there was the initial sound of chatter. The chatter turned to cheering, the cheering turned into passionate roars of emotion and along with it was the accompaniment of a full grid of turbo hybrid V6 engines.

 

It was the beginning of pre-season for Invictus Racing League and with two races in Austria and Azerbaijan on the calendar before the season officially opens in Melbourne, it gave the driver’s the perfect opportunity to see the pace of the competition whilst gathering some important test data.

The racing opened with a highly competitive race in the no-assists league. It debuted it’s newest tier one and tier two variant with newer drivers to the league entering the no-assists at tier two whilst the more established drivers will compete alongside them for the No-assist championship.

 

The performance league debuted it’s second league, with Tuesday nights now running the Performance League 1 and 2. The cars take to the track and offer some of the closest racing anywhere on PS4. Previous seasons have seen a different winner in 11 of 12 races which demonstrates the competitiveness that Invictus has to offer.

Wednesday evenings are going to be alive with furious action as the equal leagues begin this week. The F1, F2 and F3 pre-season races were full of unbelievable action, overtakes and moments that did nothing but build the anticipation for the upcoming season.

 

The countdown to the new season is over and the teams have set up in the paddock in Albert Park as the Australian Grand Prix officially opens new Invictus Racing League season. We are set to have our biggest and most successful season yet and we hope you join us for it!

Join us tonight (Monday 15th October 2018) for the No-assist league where we see if Speed_Queen90, Nikki9095 and the rest of the grid can maintain their excellent pre-season form. The race will be streamed live on twitch.tv and the links can be found on our twitter page @InvictusRL 

 

 

Arrivabene Remains Positive Despite Austria Disappointment

Arrivabene Hopeful Despite Ferrari Failures

 

Arrivabene attends media conference after Austrian Pre-Season Practice

 

 

While attending a “rare” media conference, Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene appeared upbeat despite Ferrari’s poor performance during the first pre-season race at the Red Bull Ring, Austria. Ferrari drivers Tom Wright and Craig Pinchbeck put in a strong Qualifying performance in Austria, locking out the second row behind Renault driver aaronjspence2017, a driver hotly-tipped for the Driver’s crown; and Force India driver gordow3497. Although qualifying 0.318s (Tom Wright US) and 0.452s (Craig Pinchbeck SS) Ferrari were expecting a strong showing in the race.

 

Ferrari’s expectations suffered a major set-back. Tom Wright, despite starting strong off the line, was spun from behind on the exit of Turn 1 by Mercedes driver notoriousL_I_P and then later suffered terminal damage after receiving contact from Williams Racing driver PAUL0_PABL06. Sky Sports F1 spoke with Tom Wright as he made his way back to the garage, “I felt that we’ve lost a crucial night of testing and data collection. I feel that I’m now one race behind everyone else”. 

 

 

Tom Wright tried to salvage his race after a Turn 1 incident with notoriousL_I_P

 

 

Ferrari driver Craig Pinchbeck, despite fighting for 2nd at the closing stages of the Austrian Grand Prix, experienced similar difficulties after making contact with McLaren driver f1richard67 at Turn 1. Craig was understandably disappointed as he hoped to set an early marker as he begins his F3 Championship claim. After suffering front wing damage, Craig was unable to hold onto a Podium finish and finally crossed the finishing line to take 7th.

With both Ferrari drivers experience disappointment, many wonder why Ferrari team principle Maurizio Arrivabene remains positive and upbeat. When asked what her thoughts were after the pre-season race Arrivabene had this to say, “we have two very experienced and talented drivers here at Ferrari. They have both been through hardship before and have enough resilience to bounce back for Azerbaijan. Both Tom and Craig know what is expected of them at Ferrari and I’m certain that when we travel to Melbourne for Round One, they will be ready. We managed to collect enough data to know where the car and drivers are in comparison to our rivals. It’s going to make for a spectacular season, that’s for sure”.

 

Although speaking briefly with the media in the Red Bull Ring Paddock, both Tom and Craig have remained quiet, but rumours suggest that they are focusing on the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and are looking to further test themselves at the Baku City Circuit.

Invictus looks forward to pre-season

Summer testing has been ongoing for the last three weeks and with each week we get closer to the opening race of the season in Albert Park, Melbourne.

The final summer test takes place the week commencing 24th September 2018 at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi with all leagues participating in test sessions and invitational races.

The summer tests have given the league organisers some good pace data that will determine the locations for the driver’s into the correct ability leagues. We have seen movements from last season along with some new introductions into the leagues that promise to shake up the status quo and give the paddock new rivalries to talk about.

The driver’s are all readying themselves for a competitive 12 race season, and with the prospect of new champions and podium chasers on the horizon. You don’t want to miss a race!

 

Pre season race one

The week beginning the 1st October 2018 will see the first of two official pre-season races to be held. It will be the turn of the No-Assist drivers first on Monday 1st before the Performance Leagues (1&2) take place on Tuesday 2nd before the Equal Performance driver’sjump into their race seats for their Wednesday races.

The race will take place at the former Österreichring now Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria. The track has hosted races for Invictus in recent seasons and with a quick circuit which promotes close and fierce racing, we are certainly expecting an explosive first introduction to the grid.

The circuit which runs through the picturesque Austrian hills, offering 10 turns over a 2.6 mile/ 4.3km distance with a lap time that during qualifying will be brushing 65 seconds. The run to turn one is up a steep incline into a sharp right hand turn that will catch out those who brake a fraction too late.

 

The no-assist league see the return of Speed_Queen80 who will look to re-take her throne after Gamer_DA_Best262 ran riot last season. However, with Gamer only competing in Equal Performance F1 this season, it opens the title race wide open on Monday nights for those who want to grab the championship with both hands by the end of the season.

Throughout the leagues we see very interesting battles shaping up such as Jos_Heinssie, NoFudge4U and a possible challenger in Betrayer46 in the F2 championship and a very intense SirSpud72 vs AaronJSpence2017 fight brewing in F3 as both the Mercedes and Renault teams look poised to be close all season.

 

We only have one more week of summer tests before pre-season starts and that will officially begin the countdown to lights out in Australia. The league communities are already buzzing with excitement in anticipation of the season as the mind games start.

 

The Invictus Racing League is within sight of the opening race of the season. However, you can still sign up today and get involved in some of the most competitive and compelling racing anywhere on PS4

 

 

Success on track for Invictus driver

Invictus Racing League driver Scott Bugner (BoyBetterKnowSB) recently took to the track in his Ford Fiesta at Cadwell Park, Lincolnshire and was rewarded with a successful return for his efforts.

The car which was sporting its brand new Invictus Racing League promotional decals took 4th overall in the race against strong competition.

However, it was a first in class finish for Scott as his Class F Fiesta took the top step of the podium and a trophy for the #99 car.

Huge congratulations go to Scott for his efforts and a well earned fruitful weekend at the MSV owned circuit. The whole team and community sends its warmest congratulations to Scott and we hope he will see the top step many more times!

F1 2018 Season one calendar announced

F1 2018 has been out now for a few weeks and given the driver’s a taste of the new circuits and handling of the 2018 spec machines that will be making up the grid.

Earlier today the calendar was announced for next season and with some returning favourites along with brand new additions it is certain that we will see some electric racing throughout all leagues.

 

Pre-season

Pre-season will start at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria. The fast circuit in the Austrian hills will be a eye opener for the driver’s who will be looking to hit the ground running with a lap just over a minute long. We have seen some fantastic racing around the Red Bull Ring in the past and we can expect to see more of the same in the first pre-season test.

The second and final pre-season race moves 1795 miles east to Baku on the coast of the Caspian Sea. The recent addition to the calendar will test the drivers on their precision as they make their way around the ancient city. The now infamous castle section will see who is bravest and most daring.  Could we potentially see the safety car come in to effect with the pit crews working overtime?

 

Championship rounds

The first round of the season takes place in Melbourne, Australia as the cars and drivers will fight for points around the Albert Park circuit. The grid will have started to work each other out and it will be game-time as the visors come down and lights go out to open the season.

Round two will be hosted by the desert destination of Bahrain. The race has been a part of the previous two seasons and with tyre choices always varying it makes for a strategic nightmare for the race engineers when deciding on the qualifying tyre and the pit-stop strategy. Who can overcome the dusty circuit and take victory in the gulf?

The beautiful Budapest in Hungary owns round three of the championship as the cars take to the Hungaroring. We saw some stunning racing last season around the track that is notoriously difficult to overtake on. We hopefully get to see a repeat of last seasons explosive race once again.

Round four is the first visit in Invictus history to the Paul Ricard circuit in France, with the first of the new grand prix circuits added to the game. We can expect to see a fast and furious pace with potential for thrills and spills all across the vibrant circuit as Invictus rolls into town.

The fifth round takes place at the famous Monza Autodromo. The passionate Tifosi will be cheering along for the scarlett red Ferrari’s with nothing short of a win expected. The driver’s who get signed to the team this season will know how important that race victory is.

The final round of the first half of the season comes to the home of British motorsport at Silverstone. A track that is ever popular with fans and driver’s alike. The critical section of maggotts, becketts, aintree and chapel can either ruin or fire a driver into a perfect lap. The cars going around copse corner at flat out will mean it is not a race to be missed!

The league then takes its week long break and allows the grid to prepare for the second half of the season. We have seen late season charges catapult driver’s into championship contention so the break is never one to slow the grid down.

Round seven will go to Hockenheim as the German Grand Prix returns to the F1 and Invictus calendar. The now fast arena circuit is a far shot from the old track that disappeared into the forest but it is no less exiting. The overtaking opportunities are everywhere and we are sure to see a fantastic race.

Circuite Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal, Canada hosts round eight as the cars make their first trip to North America. The infamous ‘Wall of Champions’ looms for anyone who loses concentration and with a very popular following in Canada. The Canadian Grand Prix is always a exciting one to be part of whether in the car or out of it.

Spa-Francorchamps was given round nine as the teams attend one of the most famous circuits on the planet with possibly the greatest corner in racing in Eau Rouge and Raidillon. The Ardennes hills will be alive with the sound of turbo-hybrid engines as the drivers take to the track and prepare themselves for a mouth-watering thrill ride around the tricky Belgian circuit.

The penultimate round of the season gets a shot of red, white and blue as the Circuit of the Americas maintains its position on the calendar. The incredible city of Austin hosts what could possibly be an incredibly important race in the season. The stakes will be high but as the saying goes “Everything is bigger in Texas”

Our first season wraps up in Interlagos as Brazil will see the champion crowned and celebrated. The quick track with famously changeable conditions has seen some unbelievable races in recent Invictus seasons and we can expect the same again as the driver’s will look to finish out the season in style.

 

 

With the calendar announced we await the start of what is shaping up to be a spectacular season. The new driver line up’s and team contracts will be announced in the near future so check out the Invictus Racing League twitter @InvictusRL for all announcements on dates and relevant information.

 

The countdown to the new season is underway but you can still be a part of it! Applications are still open in our sign-up section for new members, so get yourself on the grid!

Preliminary driver line up announced

The first preliminary driver lists were announced for the Invictus Racing leagues last week and we see a strong returning force with a mix of new and hungry drivers.

We are running six leagues initially but with the prospect of a PC league and a rookie no-assist league in the pipework, that list is certainly about to grow.

There is potential for some spectacular battles throughout the grid with driver’s making a comeback to the league in hope of derailing some of the established stars on track. We are all hoping this proves to be the most successful season yet and with a strong community of driver’s providing superb racing, we cannot wait!

Invictus Racing League takes to the track!

 

 

Invictus Racing League will be on full show as No-Assist and Equal Performance F1 league driver Scott Bugner (BoyBetterKnowSB) takes to the track this weekend with the leagues logo proudly placed on the car.

Scott joined the league last season and has already become a valued member of the leagues and community. He picked up a win in his second race of his IRL career at Japan after a debut podium in Canada in the No-Assists league whilst being competitive in the superb Equal Performance F1 league.

He has kindly allowed us to advertise on his car that he currently races in the Ford Saloon Series and with trips to famous circuits such as Brands Hatch, Snetterton and Rockingham we will hopefully get to promote ourselves to a wider audience.

Invictus Racing League thanks Scott for his support and willingness to promote us and wishes him all the best with the rest of his season and future seasons. Check out the race calendar on the Ford Saloon Championship website to see if you can support him in person at your nearest circuit.

 

Scott currently races online with Invictus and does well to practice enough whilst getting his Ford ready to take the chequered flag.

 

 

 

Equally he is always on the lookout for extra sponsorship opportunities so if you can or know of anyone that could help then please contact:

ScottBugner11@gmail.com
