Soooo tonight ...

Unfortunately I just saw, that the little timer I have there doesnt show the real time, but connects to the local time. So it's more than the 9 hours shown atm until Heroes airs again. I'm really looking forward to this new season! OK, back to getting the page running again... ;)

OT: new series season

OK, Prison Break already started into season 3 this week, while only 3 and somewhat days left to Heroes. So lets see what season two Heroes brings us.

I actually have to say, that I didnt not really like the first episode of new Prison Break season. But lets see what the future brings us. It's even for that TV-series really staged, as you can clearly see that it drifts away from the somewhat closed - and also quite reasonable - story of season 1 and 2. I do think that the way, the Heroes series is put up, is way more reasonable and better, than this sona season of PB. But as I already said: I'm open to surprises, so lets see what the future brings us.

Rest in Peace, McRae and son

I wanted to write somewthing else today, but the actual shit happening puts me to that:

Yesterday one of the greatest names in Rallyesport died in a sad accident, taking his 5 year old son with him into death. My condolences go to his loving wife and daughter.

Rest in peace, Johnny and Colin McRae.

First race after a loooong time

Yesterday evening I had the first league race after a looooong time. And what shall I say? Oh My God, how could I stop leagueracing for soooo long? I mean, there was everything in it! Might have been the slowest grid in the league, but damn it was fun:
OK, qulifying went OhKey, but then I had a really bad start, havent raced for a long time, i had to get used again to the attacks in the first 2 laps. And then someone threw a tire at me in the chicane. I flipped and crashed my suspension, so I had to head for the pits. 1 minute down to the leaders I now could find my rythm into the race and started hunting the other drivers. That already was a lot of fun, until lap 17 of 20...
Due to the fact, I got to my PC 1 minute before the start of the Qualifying, I forgot to reset my connection and I had my 24h DSL disconnect... shit.

OK, up to the second race, starting place 18. And now I was in the rythm already and made my way up the grid. I hunted them down, one by one, had a fastest lap in the race once (third fastest overall) and could finish in P6 at the end. My race experience helped me a lot, as I could trick a lot of the youngguns into easy mistakes and take their places. Blocking is an art, overtakin too ;) Wow, I really had a lot of fun! Up to the next race next week!

OK, here comes the next stuff from IAA

Well, I had a nice looong day with at the IAA'07 today. Started with a pretty dumb press conference at BMW. What the hell, releasing X6 and at the same time they talk about reducing CO² etc. That just doesnt fit. On the other hand, I do like the new 1 coupe. Looks so oldschool. Then I headed to the other halls and got a lot to see. Sat in a lot of cars and played some little simulators. I also did a testdrive in some boring Audi Diesel to learn how to save fuel by changing driving style. Well, that's about all. Most impressive actually were the Loremo, the Aston and the Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa, Fiat hall. It was so fucking crowded, that I wonder how this should work out, when it's open to public...
Anyway, here are the pics, enjoy!

IAA 07

IAA, first stuff ;)

OK, I gonna post some more movies and pics later on, and a detailed story about what's going on at the IAA'07 in Frankfurt, germany. But here's my first test drive:

Well, I actually played sega rally on a PS3 inside a moving Lancer, and it bloody sucked. What a sad thing, to see the possibilities of a PS3 wasted like this... :/

Interesting week coming

OhKey, the upcoming week will be a really interesting one: First i gotta have to do a lot of stuff for my league project getting started, my best three german drivers Nils, Danny and Steven will start tomorrow evening into the new ESL Premiership while I will have a start in the upcoming EAS series. First time for some racing for me since last year. Looking really forward to it.
But then, there is the biggest thing this week: The IAA is starting with its pressdays on tuesday. I'll be there early in the morning for the BMW press conference, where I will have a look at the new freeware game with the new BMW M3 in it and will also enjoy the catering and the drinks all around the exposition. That gonna fill my petrolhead :P
