Copypasta from the most recent Ironbutt in 2019, from Mztlplx:

Good morning race fans, and welcome to the fifth Ironbutt Challenge.  Monaco, Indy and Charlotte - 1262 total miles get the course of a full day.

The rules are simple enough... Three races, three threads here on Fark. All you have to do is participate in all three threads. Participation means actually taking part, by the way, so placemarker posts will not be counted. Sound easy? Let's find out .  What do you win? Bragging rights, the company of our slightly strange, mildly demented but always entertaining Fark Racing folks, and very probably a hangover. Completely worth it.

(Not copypasta:  In years past, Mztlplx would keep track.  I'll do the best I can, but would appreciate any help since today is also my oldest child's birthday.)

And now, let the Ironbutt begin!

First race in Monaco under the new aero rules so waiting to see if anyone makes any overtake attempts into the chicane after the tunnel. Of course rain will make it clownshoes anyway. You don't get a warning for exceeding track limits here. Your "warning" is that you're now walking home while marshalls are sweeping up the wreckage of your car.

Should we hope for rain on their parade?  It's probably the only excitement we'll get apart from Martin Brundle wetting his pants.

Ferrari say they expect rain. Say half the grid could win. Ferrari expect rain to make 'half the grid' contenders for Monaco win (planetf1.com)

Podium: Russell. Norris. Stroll.

/And if I'm right I'll go out and buy a lottery ticket.

Ok everyone remain calm but the wind has picked up, the temperature has dropped massively and these clouds are rolling in fast.

C'mon rain, make it interesting!

Nephew and niece are being loud. Was about to hush them, but realized it was the grid walk. Go ahead and scream kids.

It was a very expensive ritual sacrifice, but it might be enough.

Morning all.....Ironbutt here. Coffee and treats ready to go today. Tight pit row in Monaco.

Wow, did Mztlplx pass?  I didn't realize that or I've forgotten.  RIP Mztlplx.  Anyway, up early for the action, Ferrari is looking great again today.  What was the red flag for in Q3?  Was it Tsunodo's flat tire or something else, seems weird if it was just a flat tire.  Also, GAS got screwed in Q1 by a red flag I guess.

Exciting race, let's get it on!

Way better grid walk than Mikey.

Ah, the Ironbutt. Been too long since we've been able to have a proper one of these. Hopefully I can get a live double, but we'll see what the Indy gods allow. But at least we have this:

I did get Mrs. Soupafi to watch today... Although last times she watched with me, Scott Dixon crashed at Indy and Roman crashed

Wait, did they pass? Man, that's a bummer -- I admit to not keeping track of Fark as much as I used to. I mostly frequent Fark these days for the F1 races and that's it.

Rain incoming?

As for the Q3 red flag, it was for Perez crashing and Sainz being magnetized to him like a gravel trap.

Monaco has the marching-bandiest of all anthems.

Don't farking give Flabbio any oxygen, it's an atrocity that man is allowed within sight of a track

Rain tires coming out, they say. That would make this race very interesting.

If this race turns into Hockenheim 2019 because of rain, I don't know how Indy can match it. Graham Rahal not Rahaling everything away, maybe?
 
2022-05-29 8:47:42 AM  
Inters or wets?
 
2022-05-29 8:48:02 AM  
If we get rain we need it to be intermittent, and heavy enough for multiple tire changes.

Nope, 1st timer.

It's never fun to interview the drivers pre-race. Why do they keep trying...

Time for the reverse Kentucky derby.

3 minutes of action followed by a 45 minute parade.

Looks like wets, the way everyone is covering up

Don't the tyres need to be fitted within 15 minutes?

Mztlplx said in a thread once that his handle was related to "multipass" from the movie 5th Element, just goofy spelling.

Yes, Mztlplx passed suddenly in July 2021. I put up a picture of him in the Indy thread from his pilgrimage in 2016.

And of course, had a typo with it that he'd laugh at me all day long about, so...
 
2022-05-29 8:50:56 AM  
For those in central Indiana, because they can't do blackouts on Peacock yet; the Indy 500 will be available on Peacock Premium. That has been confirmed by NBC and the Speedway.

And there's rain on the grid in Monaco!
 
2022-05-29 8:51:29 AM  
iron but checking in

Bring on some light rain. Don't make it too heavy or they'll chicken out and run under safety car
