Pinned toot

hey folks, I'm Dan and I'm new here. I'm into NBA basketball (particularly the Raptors, as I live in so-called Ontario, on Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe lands). I also watch a lot of motorsports, particularly endurance racing. Please talk to me about any of this stuff!

lots of soft focus going on, I think they just started their second song

watching the indycar from the weekend and my biggest takeaway is that the camera operators at barber need to use less zoom. almost every shot is tight on a single car, which makes it hard to understand where they are on track and relative to other cars

martinsville nascar from the weekend was a lot of fun! very eventful and, as often, I'm very glad I wasn't watching live

I finally struggled through the terrible commentary. what an incredible finale to the race!

Show thread

very funny that extreme e are claiming that their purpose is to raise awareness of climate change, a thing which we have been fully aware of for literally decades now

meditating on death by listening to murray walker commentary

seeing Michael Schumacher in Benetton colours is so strange, lol

F1 bahrain spoilers 

F1 yesterday was a great race! I am hopeful for a competitive season, but the ground that Mercedes made up in just these few weeks is foreboding. I suspect max will rue messing up his opportunity to take maximum points. hopefully I'm wrong though!

now I'm watching world touring car racing, the obvious progression from f2

watched my first F2 race just now. I'm definitely going to watch the second race from today, but it was a little processional for my liking: feels like it shares a lot of F1's overtaking issues, but the drivers are more likely to make mistakes. we'll see if that initial impression holds

F1 quali spoilers 

F1 quali was fun too, though I'd have felt differently if verstappen hadn't indicated that we might have some competition this year ofc

12 hours of mugello was really fun! I wasn't entirely sold on the 24H series after dubai, but a combination of this race being good and the coverage of the Asian le mans series at Dubai sucking in some of the same ways the 24H coverage did, I'm much more excited about the rest of their season than I was

I'm so used to hybrid prototypes using electric out of the pits that I've thought every single dpi leaving its pit stall has a problem for a split second, lmao

boo Merriman pitted before he really backed Buret into Boyd; that car will likely be behind those others after the pits

Show thread

there's some great stuff happening in P2 ATM, unfortunately the coverage is just showing the DPi onboards instead of the actual racing

Welcome to! Allpro is a place to discuss sports, sports related things, etc. General stuff is fine (if you're watching the game with friends, you don't *only* talk about the game after all), but try to keep on topic.
