STORY TIME:

So, I'm sucker for cute marketing. If you want me to buy your prodict, design some cute mascot and you'll grab my attention. (I mean like old couple or panda "cute", I'm not refering to "I think she's physically attractive "cute", which will also attract my attention, but not what I'm referring to) So anyway, so I'm a sucker for cute things. When I went to Singapore in 2014, at Changi Airport, there were these things in the toilets where you gave the bathrooms a cleanliness rating. Those things were a brand new concept back in those days, but now I've started seeing them in more and more places. Anyway, so there were these things in the toilet which asked you to rate the cleanliness of the bathroom. So, there was a toilet which had a really, really foul odour, and one of the reasons you could give a negative rating was because of the odour, but there was a picture of the janitor holding up a mop in a triumphant manner, and it was so cute. It was so cute that I felt really bad about reporting the stentch, and I can't remember whether or not I could bring myself to do it

It's natural for our minds to be attracted to "cute" or "desirable" looking things I suppose.

Endurance Racing FP1
Endurance Racing Day One
Free Practice 1 got under way at the National Autodrome in Izio. The earlier rainfall meant the drivers had to contend with a drying track.
Simi Stucker would send Team Hospe's car into the gravel after misjudging his entry into Turn Four.
Team Forest Virginia spun several times on the track and narrowly avoided a pit lane collision with Team Octonovem. This led to a heated exchange of words between Octonovem's Natille Brunner and F. Virginia's Lee Godwin.
However, when the final times were chalked up, Team Forest Virginia would find themselves in p5 with a top time of 1:44:27.
Team Ottonna were fourth with a time of 1:44:05.
Team Hospean Border Islands had a quiet but speedy run finishing p3 with a time of 1:42:64.
Team Laufeyssen and Team Finmany would thrash it out at the top of the standings but Brad Elliot was able to some extra tenths of a second putting Team Finmany on the top step with a time of 1:40:12 as compared to Team Laufeyssen's top time of 1: 41: 04.

Free Practice Two commenced after the Open Wheel racers had their own free practice session. 

All teams set improved times but we saw a new number one as Forest Virginia beat their fp1 time by over six seconds.

Team Nerrise improved their time by three seconds but still brought up the rear. The Hospean Border Islands were the only to not post an improved result posting a slower time than their earlier effort. 

Team Octonovem took five seconds off their earlier effort to claim the number two slot. The Tjorlish team also improved their lap time but could only move up two places into sixth.

Kart Racing Free Practice 2
Hospe's Iris Freed set the early standard with a 1:25:00. Multiple attempts to match this time led to nothing but a stunning late lap by Eevi Larsen put Team on top with a 1:24: 44 with only four minutes left in the session.
Tjorl's Rosemarie Lafrentz rounded up the top three with a time of 1: 25: 04.

Kart Racing Qualifying
After an hour in which many teams rushed to make necessary adjustments to their karts, it was time for Qualifying.
All eyes were on Eevi Larsen and she failed to disappoint, setting an astounding 1: 23: 35 time early in the session. Eleven minutes from the end of the session, however a bevy of faster times rolled in. Octonovem's Louie Vega put himself on provisional pole with a time of 1:23:05, but on the same lap Finmany's Max Grove and Cam Tyrrell brought in near identical lap times of 1:23:02 and 1:23:03. Tjorlish representative Lafrentz also found her stride with a 1:23:00.
It would be Hospe's Iris Freed that would take the times to another level with a 1:22: 71 and claim pole position to deafening applause. The fast lap times kept rolling in, including an improved result from pole favourite Eevi Larsen.

Aerowing

Vehicle Overview

A typical airship from Paperino's military fleet, the Aerowing is a jet plane that is also capable of interspace flight. The ship has a nose shaped like a hockey mask, and three main exits through front, side, and bottom hatches. There is a seat and seatbelt for each team member, and console panels mainly for navigation and weapons control. The Aerowing also has room to store other vehicles in the cargo bay, including several gliders.

The Aerowing is equipped with a constant link to Drake 1, and emergency medical supplies. Weaponry ranges from dual laser cannons to missile launchers. It has a hangar in the Pond beneath the ice rink, and the roof of the building opens to allow the Aerowing to launch.
