The Circuit of the Americas racetrack has brought back Formula 1 to the United States after being gone for close to a decade. (Edit It was 4 years Woody lol) Talk a little bit about your thoughts on this circuit and if any of your strengths play in to what it takes to be quick here.

And your Japan race. Did you feel that you accomplished what you set out to do this weekend?

What are your goals for the remainder of this season?

Will Harry ever stop having a moan?

Who will take pole this race?

Who will be on the podium?

Ask @Bankai_Bullett a question ... about anything.

Fake news, clearly.

It seemed longer, but yeah.

Austin is a track I like to drive but I'm pretty weak at overall. It's gonna take a bit of practice to be able to run competitively up front.


And your Japan race. Did you feel that you accomplished what you set out to do this weekend?

Yes. I may have been DSQ'd for not following the mandatory tire rule, but I needed to have a race where I could have a good qualifying and be able to race up front instead of the mid pack cluster that I am usually a part of. I really enjoyed the race and I was dicing it up with several people I have not raced with before.

What are your goals for the remainder of this season?

I want to win a race if possible and I think I am knocking at the door really. With the right strategy and right determination I think I can pull it off.

Will Harry ever stop having a moan?

Probably not, it's just in his nature.

Who will take pole this race?

@bor44

Who will be on the podium?

A combo of Harry, Mazais, and bor probably

What is your dream job? (Besides being a cod at AOR of course)

Dream job.... well, not so much a job, but I'd love to make a career out of building, modifying, showing off and racing cars. For fun, not so much competitively lol

Its a track I enjoy I was slow as **** here on F1 2012 then quite fast on 2013 and average on 2014 so basically Im quite erratic around here. Its a track with three very different sectors so you need a setup that works on the long straight the fast sector 1 and the very slow stadium section.

And your Japan race. Did you feel that you accomplished what you set out to do this weekend?

My target before the race was 8th place and thats where I finished so I cant be unhappy but I was disappointed to lose 6th place because I couldnt get past @Prehn in his rocket powered Renault.

What are your goals for the remainder of this season?

My aim all season has been to get a podium I had two very good chances at Silverstone where the game screwed me over and Austria where I messed up behind the VSC and had to change my wing which cost me probably 2nd place. If I do get a podium it will be here or Brazil as Mexico is like Malaysia for me and AbuDhabi isnt exactly my favourite circuit.

Will Harry ever stop having a moan?

Umm probably not but if I hated every track like he does I would moan as well. :p

Who will take pole this race?

When was the last time you were actually happy you always seem to be miserable? :p

I don't like this circuit much, I find it hard to be quick and consistent in the final sector but we'll see how it goes. I'm on a 5 race podium streak currently so hopefully I'll be able to continue that.

And your Japan race. Did you feel that you accomplished what you set out to do this weekend?
Well you can't ask for much more than a victory to be honest, so it went perfectly really. Wasn't actually expecting to win as I though Bor would have caught me as he seemed to have great pace.

What are your goals for the remainder of this season?
To win at least one more race and *hopefully* take the title.

Will Harry ever stop having a moan?
I'll do a deal, if I win this race I won't complain again for the rest of S12 :p

Who will take pole this race?
@bor44 , @Bankai_Bullett or @mazais5727 I think. Maybe @zWoody or @oo7_pROF3SSIONAL can pull off a home race hero job.

Who will be on the podium?
I'd like to think I'll be able to take a podium here, but I can see @mazais5727 , @bor44 , @oo7_pROF3SSIONAL and @zWoody all being in contention for it.

If I ever rejoin PCars can we be teammates and be called the "Miserable Bastards"? ;)

I've been to this track in person for XGames and for MotoGP testing, and I absolutely love it. I've even driven the north part of the circuit (the National Circuit I believe) in a 5.0 Mustang GT courtesy of Ford at XGames. Absolutely one of my favorite tracks. The fact that I tend to be good on traction should help out of the hairpin and in S3.

And your Japan race. Did you feel that you accomplished what you set out to do this weekend?
Well, I didn't race but from the stewards' panel it looks like you guys had a blast.

What are your goals for the remainder of this season?
It is looking like I will have to miss both Mexico and Brazil due to the same issue that kept me out in Japan, so I guess just finishing in some solid points here and Abu Dhabi.

Will Harry ever stop having a moan?
Probably not, I wish I hated every track the way he did because then maybe I'd be good at this game.

Who will take pole this race?
@HRacingGreen or @bor44

@HRacingGreen @bor44 and @mallucm

You've never had Rum&Raisin ice cream?!
Well, it's EXACTLY AS IT SOUNDS lol
You'll find it in basically any supermarket.


Dunno if it's sold in the US. I'd imagine it is though.
Well I've lived in California and in Texas and neither of those markets have it, maybe they have it up north

Maybe it's just not very common over there.
Like PB&J in a jar is basically impossible to find over here. Not that I like PB&J... at all, but you get my point lol
I always forget that Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches aren't like a worldwide thing, because they are amazing.
