Hello fans and friends of fast. I am your host, Torzelbaum. Let me welcome you to beautiful Talking Time International Speedway which has temporarily been re-christened as The Thunderdome while it is home to the ...

WannaDriveFastDome!

We have a thrilling series of head to head races for your enjoyment. And to make things even more thrilling we have added state-of-the-art technology to all of the racers. Every racer has been installed with the Fan Appreciation Sensitive Throttle (FAST) System which puts the outcome of these races in your hands! How it works is that the more appreciation you show for a racer the faster they will go - and whoever goes the fastest wins! So be sure to show your appreciation for your favorites!

Now before me proceed I have brief public service announcement:
We here at Talking Time and TTIS want to remind you that this is about what makes you wanna drive fast not what makes you drive fast. The racers are trained and experienced professionals who are operating on a closed course with safety personnel standing by. Please drive safely and obey all applicable traffic laws. And always drive at a speed that is safe for the current road, traffic and weather conditions.

And now I have a small bit of bad news - our crews are still working on preparing the track so we are not ready to start yet. But once we start be sure to tune in for all of the great high-speed action of the ...

Bracket is here. Participating Tyrants - tell me if anything looks off to you. Since we had an off number of picks there are some play-in races.

I just realized none of us nominated Jerry was a Race Car Driver. We should all be ashamed.

I think a lot of people will be kicking themselves when the tags I will be adding remind them of songs they could have picked.

Two of my picks could face off in the first "full" round if one wins its play-in, but eh, it's fine!

OK. I think I have this figured out as well as I possibly can with the tools I have available. So we're off!

Race 1 (qualifier):
There are no restrictions on the propulsion methods in this dome so let's see if Ixo's team of Propellerheads can make a SpyBreak! across the finish line. But that might be difficult if they Can't Stop the Rock of Violentvixen's team Apollo 440.


Apollo 440 - Can't stop the Rock

Race 2 (qualifier):
Purple's racing duo of Chisa Yokoyama & Teikoku Kagekidan might know about Sakura Wars but the war on the track is an entirely different beast. Can their entry of Geki! Teikoku Kagekidan prevail over Octo's team TWRP* and their mysterious Phantom Racer? Will The Protomen who are assisting TWRP in the pit be the deciding factor in the race?

*Tupper Ware Racing Party?





Voting will be open until 9 PM CDT tomorrow.

Gonna have to go Sakura Rock.


For being as long as it is, SpyBreak! has always frustrated me with its quality of seeming like it's going to kick into a higher gear at any given point but never doing it, and I'm the one who nominated the victorian mecha vs. Satan's army of xenomorphs theme.

Also, I only very recently learned that TWRP was an acronym; I thought the name of the band was “twerp”

Race 3 (qualifier)

For this next set of races first we have Purple's team Battle Beast who knows what to do with your engine to win a race - Let It Roar. However keurig's driver Manuel (Karamori) has a similar but different plan - hit the Gas Gas Gas. So who will prevail?

Let It Roar by Battle Beast



Gas Gas Gas by Manuel (Karamori)

Race 4 (qualifier)
Next Issun's team ACE+ will try to get in the right Mechanical Rhythm to finish first. But they'll have some stiff competition from Mightyblue's driver MYRONE who has brought an Exclusive Coupé to the race.





Voting will be open until 10 PM CDT tomorrow.
