Hello once again, another Friday is upon us and the weekend is upon the horizon. Sadly there is no Formula 1 this weekend, however there shall be Superleague Racing but that’s then and this is now. We’ll just have to wait another week until we visit Istanbul so until then we will have to find other things to keep us occupied! So what wisdom will the bullet points bring?

  • Here’s a shocker for you – the FIA have admitted they’ve made a bit of a slip up with their rules regarding the last lap safety car rule. They released a statement yesterday regarding their view and they shall rectify their rules soon we can assume. Not every day you see the FIA doing that now, is it? However I still think Schumacher shouldn’t have been penalised, which may be a controversial statement to make in these parts I suppose!
  • Despite an assignment deadline on the horizon, I spent my afternoon yesterday enjoying a new karting game on the Playstation 3 called ModNation Racers. In that time I managed to somehow find the time to create myself Monaco! As well as this, check out my Mini Rubens in his Mini Brawn! It’s a fantastic game though, and has already been released in North America with the EU and Australia getting the game today (on PSP too). Definitely recommended if you love your Mario Kart! Interestingly the championship in the game is called the MRC. MRC... Mr C... coincidence? I think not!
  • I don’t have much else to share so why not remember some awesome Sidepodmemories? This week I’ve been remembering just how fantastic the Sidepodpanels were not only to take part in but to listen back on. If you’ve not heard them before, you have to give them a listen. Also, Sidepodradio took place last year in 12 hours of completely awesomeness, and another part of our history at Sidepodcast that is full of laughter and classic moments. What are some of your favourite Sidepodcast moments?

That’s another Friday daily post sorted and dusted and expressed for your entertainment. There’s been rumblings in the comments of a possible meet-up at the Pure Tech Racing Simulator Centre, so definitely take a look at that if you’re interested. Other notes of interest include it being 42 days until the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2010 begins and it being 98 days until the big meet up at Spa Franchorchamp! Exciting times! Nevertheless, let’s get through today and comment our way into another weekend.
