vMaxSR Press release, December 14, 2008.

V8 Thunder.
vMaxSR can today announce the signing of the two top Stock Car drivers Martin Buchan and Ben Parker. The addition to the team comes as a big surprise to everyone involved as the pair are commonly known to have battled the Cardiff based team for several seasons, but are now joining forces instead. Initial reports claim that all parties are happy with the agreement made. It was a relieved division co-ordinator who could confirm the news, following the team's worst season to date this is a significant improvement made to the squad. Whilst Ben will bring with him speed, youth and energy, Martin will act as a key player supporting the team with unlimited wool and cookies.

Thought i'd better post something as people seem quite shocked and surprised at this!

Firstly, this is nothing about SRD at all. They have been a tremendous team to work with, all the guys; Simon and Bruce, Jack, Mathieu, Marc, CJ, past drivers Mark and Rich and any others i've forgotten. :oops: It really has been a pleasure to be part of such a committed team to V8 and I really enjoyed learning the ropes with them. However after 5 (?) seasons with the team, I felt I needed a change, a change that would reignite my interest in V8 and online racing in general. If at all possible, if this vMax thing goes downhill then I would like to possibly return to SRD one day, dunno whether that would happen but who knows.

Anyway therefore I took the decision to join vMax. It wasn't an easy decision, but it was a decision that has been on my mind for some time (indeed I was contemplating this before the Aut 2008 season). I guess I just needed to decide if I was ready to make such a big change. However, I felt I couldn't make this leap without my best pal from the league Martin. I think we can really become a great team in vMax once again after a terrible season for them. It would be nice to also race the guys I once worked with (SRD) on track and have a solid three way battle going on again in the form of vMax vs. SRD vs. Ecosse. I'm already hyped up for next season. :)

So anyway yeah, apologies to Simon for not informing him of my decision, but I only made it last night along with Martin in an interesting conversation with Caspar. At the same time I look forward to racing with vMax in what is a new chapter in my V8Thunder racing career.

Wow, possibly post deleted and a re-write of history, or we have a God in our midst., perhaps I was drunk and misread - but I don't feel it!

this thread about a driver change is getting way to scary.

BTW, if I wan't to re-write history, can I or is that for the privileged only :cry:

you gotta laugh.

Guess the wool and cookie man better post something

Enjoyed my time wi SRD hepas especially when they took me into this league and well basically raising thier profile into trophy and then racing with the likes of Rich, Mark and CJ was pretty swish and Ive also made friends with all the guys and met quite a few of them in the real world which kinda shows how closley knit a team it is, not many teams can say its members visit each other as often as we have. But after 4 seasons with a team I need a change of scenery just to keep the enthusiasm from going to the depths of ben's bowels :P

So just wanna say thanks to Topham and Bruce for giving me the chance at SRD in the first place and well with the success they are having right now, to rich mark and cj for being awsome teamies along with Marc the man who will always have a killer homestead set thanks to yours truly and also jack and mathieu for coming into the team so well. But I wont be thanking one ex team member and you preety much know who he is :wink:

Right off to knit casp some woolie jumpers and give him new oreo max alcohol cookies

Your right about that.

Mind, this wasn't an edit, it was a delete :!:

I gather only admins can do that?

I think you can delete your own post if it is still at the bottom of the thread (or an admin can delete any post mid-thread).
