My descriptions of each season:
Season 12 - I must say i did quite well, starting 14th and finishing 10th, but then the next 2 races i had technical problems so I had to DNF those two races!
Driver: Carlo Columbo

Summary: Need to learn the game more, but a good first race.

Season 13 - Aim: to stay in Amateur for next season, and to finish all the races!
After I promoted last season, I am in Amateur...
Driver: Carlo Columbo
I got promoted to Amateur and i created the Team of the Future, and started 32nd because i forgot to read the weather forecast and went out on the wrong tyres, but fought back to finish 14th! 2nd race, i did a little better in qualy, started 24th, finished 20th, 3rd race, typical race, finishing a couple of places up from my qualifying position, started 23rd, finished 21st, the 4th race i had an average qualy and an average race, starting 25th and finishing 22nd, in the 5th race i started 3rd from last in 27th but moved up a couple of places to finish 24th, also in this season i created the 2nd Snooker Tournament and joined a few other silly games, anyway, 6th race, nothing else to say but: started 27th, finished 26th, 7th race, i started 21st and finished 23rd, 8th race, a stunning Q2 gave me 18th on the grid i managed to grab 11th towards the end as opponents pitted, but then i pitted on the last lap and dropped to 17th, but it was my 2nd best finish in Amateur so far! 9th race: i started 23rd and finished 21st, then the 10th race: i made a meal of qualy starting 28th out of 30 then finishing 23rd out of 26/27 finishers, 11th race, started 26th, finished 26th and last :( 12th race, started 20th and finished 20th, 13th race of season 13 on Friday the 13th :-O i started 22nd and finished 21st, 14th race, i started 21st and finished 22nd, 15th race i started 19th and finished 19th, 16th race i started 17th and finished 20th, 17th race, another good Q2 gave me 15th on the grid, I then finished 14th!

And i have a disasterous race, dropping from 17th to 32nd :( 2nd race i messed up badly... 27th to 30th, started 27th, finished 27th after being 11th for a few laps before pit 1, race 4, I started 20th and finished 25th, race 5, i forgot now where i started but i finished 24th, race 6, finished 35/36 :( race 7, started 34th, finished 30th, in race 8 i started and finished 25th, race 9 i started 36th/37 starters but finished 26th, race 10, started 35th, finished 24th race 11, started 25th, finished 21st, so close to goal 3 :( race 12, started 30th, finished 22nd, race 13, started 28th finished 19th, race 14, qualified 30th, put on wrong tyres for the race, (started on dries) finished 19th, race 15, finished 19th, race 16, started 30th, finished 16th, bought a new driver called Nigel Donnelly, race 17, started 29th and last, finished 17th

Story of the season: First race done, and season is looking promising, doing not quite as good as expected but still have a strong chance of promotion. After R2 leading the group championship, pretty happy atm. :) 3 podiums from 3 races, couldn't have hoped for much better :) R5 first win of the season and I have a commanding lead in the championship! :) Things are going according to plan atm :) One more point and I've won the group! :) Won the group comfortably, up to Amateur I go!
Aim 1: Achieved
Aim 2: Achieved
Aim 3: Achieved
Aim 4: Achieved
Aim 5: Achieved
Aim 6: Achieved

Season 27:
Back into Amateur!
Aim 1: Score a couple of points. Aim 2: Retain. Aim 3: Get myself into a good position for next season.
Story of the season: Started brilliantly, qualified 13th, finished 9th with a low level car! Scored my first Ama points at Race 8, woo hoo! With retention secured due to that point I began to start saving money late in the season, the 8th and a late 9th place had sealed my retention. Season finished now, so bring on Season 28! Oh, led a lap for the first time in Amateur! :)
Aim 1: Not achieved
Aim 2: Achieved
Aim 3: Achieved
Summary: Only got one point but that was all I needed to retain this season, and retention and improvement were the main aims, and they were achieved in mid season. So overall a successful season. :)

Season 28:
Push for promotion or hold back and retain?
Aim 1: Score some points. Aim 2: Improve my driver further. Aim 3: Top 10 in season standings.
Retention was achieved easily in Race 2, with a couple of points in Race 4 added for good measure, improving driver is proving a bit of a challenge while trying to keep OA below 110 and keeping motivation up. I decided against promotion for this season, I might push for a few more points before trying to save some money though, because maybe I can be top 10 in standings and get a nice bonus :) I wasn't top 10 but a decent season nonetheless, bring on Season 29!
Aim 1: Achieved
Aim 2: Achieved (a little)
Aim 3: Not achieved
Summary: A good season, I improved my finances again and got a sponsor and a decent place in the standings!

Season 29:
Time to promote.
Aim 1: Promote. Aim 2: End the season with over 80M. Aim 3: Improve car and Staff and Facilities.
Story of the season: A podium at the first race has set me well on the way to achieving my main goal for the season, promotion, can I keep this form going though? Another podium and things are looking rather good for me. Races 3-6 were bad races but got back to normal in Race 7 with another podium, then I won at Paul Ricard (Race 8), so happy! :) Won again, 2 in a row now! And 3 wins now, but I was very nervous at the end of this one, but pulled it off! :) Had a bad race 11 but got my 4th win of the season in Race 12, promotion to Pro is nearly mine! :D Promotion successful, but only just, despite 4 wins.
Aim 1: Achieved
Aim 2: Achieved
Aim 3: Achieved
Summary: A decent season for me, my driver punched above his weight and got the promotion despite only having about the 8-10th best OA in the group! :)

Season 30:
Can I stay in Pro?
Aim 1: Retain.
20th place, ok but not enough. Stupid start crash in Race 4 hurt my finances badly. I completely failed so relegating with some money hopefully :)

Season 31:
Rebuilding season?
Summary: Failed and now returning to rookie, something I had hoped I would not have to do.

Season 33:
Time to promote?
Aim 1: Promote
Aim 2: Have plenty of money in the bank
A decent start to the season, 5th place, I'll see if I can build on this. Have a new team now :) A poor race 3, but Race 4 has put me back on course :)

Stopped updating after S33, gonna start updating this again, might make it shorter and just keep important seasons in my career (Like those where I joined a new team) and update my stats, keep existing Amateur seasons in there but take out the Rookie seasons where I didn't achieve much. Also taking out my top 5s and podiums. Updating stats from S33-44). Also only keeping the cup runs managed in Amateur groups or above.

S73 and I'm back, the start of a project! I plan to take this driver to at least Pro! In S74 I joined a new team (Jordan Racing). S75 and I've made it into Amateur after a close fight for promotion in S74 (All credit goes to my team, without them I probably wouldn't have gotten most of those podiums late in the season), got a top 15 finish by virtue of an OBP in R8! Not completely out of the woods though, still a battle ahead! I say bring it on! A top 10 finish late in the season secured my retention with ease, and in a much better position overall than I was at the start of the season. S76 and got a good result early in the season, easing the nerves, a strong performance in the wet in the middle of the season solidifying my position in midtable. Got a couple of points finishes, one through a gamble that paid off and the other due to a well planned OBP! S77 and I am hopeful of some good results, a tyre puncture denying me a top 5 finish early in the season was disappointing but I know I will have more opportunities to score later in the season! Redemption a couple of races later with a 6th place finish! Midseason the rain season came along and I began to rack up the points, by the end I was even scoring in the dry and got a podium in R16! S78 could be a huge season for me! And it starts with a comfortable podium at the opener! 2 straight wins followed, and this is a dream start to the season for me! Got my first Ama hattrick in mid season with a well planned push race and finished 2nd in the group with a lot of cash to make an assault on Pro with! S79 and I need a new driver...

Quote ( Ben Gilbert @ October 3rd 2010,11:12:42 )

In thirty-two races, the Welshman finished every single time, and scored points in all but two, and while they were not especially good points, with only one podium in the first seven weekends, they all added up.

Longest finishing streak in the history of FAE :oP
