There are some people who make a forum like ours at Raceonoz tick. People who have a genuine love and enjoyment of what we try to do, and get a buzz out of being involved with like minded people no matter their age, attitude or in our case speed. Cols introduction to Raceonoz is a bit of a strange story, and one of pure coincidence. Here i am one day at work when the phone rings, Its an Optus rep, looking to drum up sales with a business offer for our work phones. Not interested, my brain goes into overdrive given my home phone was with Optus, and i had been suffering with the dreaded GT5 connection issues, surely this bloke might be able to help me out ? Me : Not interested in the business phones, but I help run an online racing league and my Optus connection has been crap, any suggestions? Col : What sort of racing league ? Me : GT5........are you interested ? Col : REALLY, I HAVE GT5 AND A PLAYSTATION, DO YOU HAVE A WEB SITE? Me : Yes, www.......... Col : i will try to register tonight, would love to have a go And the rest is history.......... After a few weeks of practice sessions, and the now famous toilet trip with the mic still on, col was ready to be unleashed on the Sunday leagues. Col started his racing here at ROOZ in season 9, placed in division 4 along side drivers such as Clevohead, HSV_Butters and Rumbleshorts. His first season was a steep learning curve, but he stuck it out, finishing 2 of the season races in 4th position, with a championship ending position of 6th. In season 10 he finished the championship in 10th, with a best result of 7th at both Trial Mountain and Monza. Season 11 Col was away at the Vatican looking for divine intervention to get that elusive podium........with his dog Sasha ! Season 12, Col had returned from the Vatican, but had been told by the better half that Sunday nights were now to be set aside for a bubble bath, massage and unseen episodes of friends. Season 13, col was still on his Sunday night sabbatical, and in all seriousness, had more pressing family issues to attend to. Showing his genuine enthusiasm for all things ROOZ, he was still active where possible in some of the weeknight series including Mustafurs WRC road racing championship, Clevos Kart championships, and all the different NASCAR series that have been run over the last few years. Cols genuine excitement after the final round of the NASCAR 3 series, where he went toe to toe with Warrior, Scotty and myself for 90 laps, just being pipped for the podium is Rooz gold, and his phone call the following day, still jumping out of his skin, was classic Col. Col has rejoined the Sunday Series 1 with GT6, and managed to get that illusive podium, on 2 occasions finishing 2nd at both Motegi and the holy grail, Bathurst. He finished the championship in a career best 4th overall. Col isnt the fastest driver in our ROOZ community, but he makes up for that in spades with his enthusiasm and encouragement of all the other ROOZ members, support of what we are trying to achieve and enjoyment of any series he is a part of. As i said at the start, its people like Col that make a community like ours tick. Col, you are a Super_ROOZ member, congratulations.
