Returning to the series that put Invetero on the Nonchalant Dominance Pit Lane, PC drivers Xepy★̅ and Mistarr are slated to race in Endersai's San Andreas Grand Tourer Championship (Formerly San Andreas Touring Car Championship), San Andrea's acclaimed GT3 Championship series. Races span the entirety of the state, starting the 21st of April at Parson's Loop and ending the 7th of July at Del Pero GP. The field is diverse, consisting of Comets, Banshees, and Carbonizzares, but Invetero has only received requests for one pair of Coquettes to send to SAGTC. This comes as no surprise to company president Steven R. Smith:
"The modern Coquette can be a finicky car at times, particularly over bumps as it was seen in the pre-season test. This does put Mistar and Blah at a slight disadvantage, but I have faith in race organizer Endersai's vehicle balancing system, and in both driver's abilities on the track."
We will keep you updated on the team's progression throughout the season, as well as any other news for Invetero right here.
The start of sixth season of the San Andreas Grand Touring Championship has been rough for the Invetero Racing Team to say the least.
Racing started on the 21st of April at the crowd pleasing Parson's Loop, a 2.7 mile hills circuit with many elevation changes, and the only hills circuit listed on the calendar. The drivers started mid pack, but Mistarr Coquette suffered a mechanical failure on the opening laps, forcing a dropout. Invetero Mechanics cited a blown transmission as the issue, with no spare to replace it. Mistar used one of his two white cards. Xepy★̅ finished his race in 22nd, also using one of his two white cards for the Loop.
Early Season jitters seemed to affect the whole field this season, especially during race two at Montreal. Both Mistar and Blah where involved in many racing incidents all throughout the race. The Coquettes, as well as many of the other driver's vehicles, returned to the Pit Lane with incredible amounts of damage due to the hectic racing. Invetero Company President Steven R. Smith commented:
"It looked like an absolute madhouse out there."
Despite the less-than-quality racing, Invetero was able to put up some decent results at race two, with Blah and Mistar placing 14th and 16th. Mistar used his second white card, Blah keeping the result, though points are not rewarded for finishing lower than 12th.
Currently, Progen Racing Team's driver The Hunter and his Surano are heading the drivers standings with 73 points, with Overflod Racing's @zenvohh only one point behind in his Pfister Comet. fab. ICEMAN and the Grotti team are third, driving the Carbonizzare.
Team principle jt33396, who is in a high position in Pfister Motorsports, was asked to comment about how well the Comet is doing this season:
"Being one of my personal favorite vehicles, Its nice to see the Comet placing so high in the racing, even though Pfister isnt officially racing in the championship."
Currently, Blah and Mistar are 17th and 22nd in the driver's standings. Invetero is tied for 11th in the teams championship. Keep it here for more updates from SAGTC.
The Invetero Racing Team is saddened to announce that Invetero has officially been dropped from Endersai's San Andreas Grand Tourer Championship, drivers Xepy★̅ and Mistarr citing the Coquette's unruliness over curbs as the issue.
Team Principle jt33396 released a statement:
"It's not surprising to me that Blah and Mistarr were not very fond of the Coquette and chose to drop the brand in Touring Cars (SAGTC). I honestly dont blame them nor resent them for their decision. I dont believe that endersai and the SAGTC organizers have made any mistakes in their Balance of Performance within Touring Cars, as Invetero had nearly podiumed the first season of Touring Cars, and has won races throughout most seasons. I feel its just that there are easier, more consistent options in vehicle choice with Bravado, Pfister, Benefactor, and even the odd entrances Like Albany.
The Coquette is a more skill oriented chassis, in my opinion. Winning is possible, but difficult. Anyone who wins a race in a Coquette should be commended, because they overcame not only adversity in the form of his or her competitors and the track, but also the unique driving style of the Coquette."
Despite dropping out the Championship, all variations of the Coquette are still popular and selling strongly within the United States and San Andreas.
Invetero's race engineers are currently testing the Coquette for possible solutions to its erratic behavior over curbs and high speed corners. The Invetero Racing Team will begin to focus on its other two models, the Coquette Classic and Coquette Blackfin, in competition within the Nonchalant Dominance Racing Association (NDRA).
