Sauber Spectacular In Italy
Perfection from KaW TactiicZz
In an Italian Grand Prix that witnessed a few drivers experiencing reliability issues, Sauber seized the initiative and made themselves a force to be reckoned with in F2. Although many in the Paddock expected McLaren driver Craig and Ferrari driver, and Championship leader Notorious to dominate Monza, it was not to be. Craig, although looking promising in practice failed to produce when it mattered, while it was disaster for Notorious who crashed out exiting Parabolica, much to the dismay of the Tifosi.
While others failed, both Sauber drivers conquered. KaW TactiicZz and VoidsCOD capatalised to ensure they mount a serious Constructor Championship bid. Kaw was absolutely dominant, securing Pole and the Race win while teammate VoidsCOD caught Craig sleeping at the race start and pulled off a spectacular dive up the inside of Rettifilio.
KaW lead from the front from the race start while VoidsCOD seized the opportunity after Notorious’ mistake. There was also relief at Haas, although prevented from competing due engine failure, delange’s title hopes remain alive. Merecedes were also delighted with both drivers after Mike secured 4th and Sirspud came home in 6th. Nikki in the Renault also produced an impressive display, gaining 3 positions during the race and finished 2nd. NoFudge can count himself unlucky not making his strategy work; opting to start on the Soft compound. This will be a race that Jamiemet will soon want to forget; losing his front wing in Ascari inevitably ruled him out of securing good points at Ferrari’s home Grand Prix.
With 4 races remaining in the Invictus World Championship, everything is still to play for. Can Notorious bounce back? Can delange secure the Championship lead? Will Sauber remain dominant or can Haas and Ferrari return to winning form?
Tune in next Wednesday for the Australian Grand Prix.
Memorable Victory for VoidsCOD
There was elation in the Sauber garage as VoidsCOD secured their first win of the season at the British Grand Prix. VoidsCOD starting from 3rd on the grid after a wet qualifying quickly passed McLaren driver Craig before Turn 1 and then set his sights on Pole-sitter UnomiWonKentucky. VoidsCod, starting on the SS used his superior grip to pass Unomi on the inside at Turn 3. Unomi was caught napping by the early move and was looking like he was about to lose another position to Craig who attempted an opportunistic move going into Turn 4. However contact between Unomi and Craig resulted in them both going off track – Craig subsequently re-entered the track dangerously and made contact with BWAClyde in the Renault which resulted in Clyde losing his front wing and Craig receiving a One-Position penalty.
There was disaster for Red Bull as Nitrogash experienced an Engine unit failure while Hulkenburger failed to finish the race. The biggest victor was Scuderia Ferrari with NotoriousL_I_P securing 2nd in the race, claiming the top spot in the driver’s Championship and Jamiemet securing a solid 5th; Scuderia Ferrari now lead the Constructor’s Championship with a 6 point gap over HAAS. Scuderia Ferrari driver NotoriousL_I_P looks consistent and unstoppable at the moment, achieving two podium finishes, but the race win remains elusive at the moment – can anyone stop Notorious?
McLaren driver suffered a setback after contact with Torro Rosso driver Miles-22, both drivers were unable to finish the race.
There was an impressive driving display from Williams driver KiLo who secured 4th place while Torro Rosso driver and new father Milanpop gained 5 places to finish 7th. Both Mercedes driver Sirpsud and xMikexSI also secured much needed points and maintain their position over Renault and McLaren.
RED BULL GIVES KaW TacTiicZz WINGS
There was a shock for all as KaW TacTiicZz won the British Grand Prix after his second official race start. KaW masterminded a one-stop strategy which allowed him to secure the win against tough competion. VoidsCOD, driving for Haas and is well known for his quick pace was unable to catch the Red Bull of KaW TacTiicZz. KaW is certainly a driver that has caught the eye of many in the Performance League.
IRL [F1] Performance League commentator Craig had this to say, “he was very impressive on Tuesday evening, I don’t think anyone expected KaW to secure his first Race win on his second race start. A very impressive display against quick and seasoned drivers; he’s certainly one to watch over the next few races”.
After an impressive display in his first race, securing 4th in Monaco, KaW has definitely produced it when it mattered and is fast becoming a competitor, and possible top-half finisher in the Performance League. VoidsCOD secured 2nd place while the consistent NotoriousL_I_P completed the Podium line-up in 3rd.
The IRL [F1] Peformance League begins it’s Mid-Season break before moving onto the legendary track of Spa.
Create an event for each race, all the races then get displayed in the sidebar of the site for everyone to see.
Probably my favourite feature on the whole site. No need to use any Excel spreadsheets and then take pictures of them anymore. Just put the table up on the site and then ANY ADMIN can update the table. So, if the person who is supposed to update them is busy for a week someone else can jump in and update them. You do not need to take pictures of the table, once you update it on the WordPress dashboard it should automatically update on the site.
We have included a forum on the new site. The forum has the usual features that you would have in a forum and some other stuff. All the forums can be found from the nav bar at the top of the page or the sidebar. The sidebar will also display the most recent posts on the forum.
Another feature of the new IRL site is groups. You are able to create a group of users on the site and then you can create a forum or blog specifically for these users. This is great for the admins and for admin discussions. It could also be used to create a group for all the drivers within a specific league.
On the site you are able to add sliders into your posts. Sliders are basically elements that cycle through a series of images.
You are able to create your own polls and put them straight into the forum, the blog or any other pages. You can also view stats for all the different polls.
On any blog post, page or comment you are able to rate it out of 5. At the moment we do not have this on the forum but it would be something we look at doing in the future.
Twitter In Sidebar
One of the big things that we wanted on the previous site was the ability to have our latest tweets in the sidebar but now we have it! On the right hand side of most pages you will be able to find some of the most recent tweets from the IRL twitter account.
One of the biggest features of this site is our new blog! Basically, the home page to our site is a blog. This means after each race someone could create a blog post with a race report within it and maybe some race highlights. This post will then be displayed on the home page for everyone to see! You could also incorporate the driver of the day polls straight into these blog posts.
