Racers' Excuse Thread

Post by Flyin Mikey J on Fri 15 Jun 2012 - 4:10

Finally, a thread devoted to the excuses uttered during/after race meetings.

I guess I'll post first, as I have actually used this one twice. As lame as this may sound, both times were 100% genuine:

"Sorry for the chop, but someone was on my other side and I had no idea you were there"


I am pretty sure that many of you guys have heard and said much funnier stuff than that.

Best real world racers' excuse I have heard, from a driver I was pitting for, via in-car radio, "My brakes are fading!" as his went on to punt another car in the next turn.

A short time later I found out from the crew chief that was code for "The guy in front of me has angered me".

Something you get from a lot of racers here when in a qualifying lobby..

''I swear, I did a xx.xx:xx earlier during practice'' - And they say this about 10 times.

I'm guilty of it too Razz But I try my hardest not to.

One of my first online league races, many years ago, involved the driver in third places cat attacking him in the closing stages, giving me a podium! Very Happy

I'm going to quit saying that every week. I always seem to lose a full second between practice and qualifying. It seems that 4 flying laps aren't enough as in practice I always set my best laps ten-twelve laps into a run. Meaning my set up is better in teh long run.

One of my bests:

In a C Class private race lobby with some friends, after blowing the turn at the end of Old Mulsanne after passing for the lead...

Them: "What happened? Are you okay?"
Me: "I fell asleep"
