    Really? hmmm I am intrigued now

    Jennterista Racing Chronicles


    The Jennter Succession Conflict


    Chapter 2/2: Business as Usual

    Fort Gale // Gibraltar
    16th October 2209
    14:34.06


    Qualifying runs have been underway in Fort Gale. While the initial grid of size of eight craft remained for the 2209 season, the entry list has been growing longer. Jennter has been away from professional AG racing ever since the end of the F9000 league and thus was, despite being one of the oldest teams on the grid, treated like any other new team and had to struggle for qualifikation.

    “Quick Nico, our run starts in less than a minute!” Jennters Chief Mechanic, Kai Berbech, spoke to the pilot through the team radio.
    “All personnel, leave the box!” he ordered his mechanic staff “Launch systems.”
    The ion thruster engine of the Jennter JAG-FX401 craft began to emit a screeching noise. For Nico Bovier this has hardly been noticeable in the cockpit. He tensed up as the craft idled in the pit box and was about to be lifted onto the track.

    Then the port opened and the ship has been moved upwards, the sun flooded its canopy.
    “Next run in the qualifiers: Craft number 9, Jennter Enterprises, piloted by Nico Bovier.” the trackside announcer informed the spectators.
    “Nico is heir to the Bovier family” another commentator spoke “But his younger sister Jana has been in favour of taking over the families business, by his own choice.”

    The start signal played and Nico landed a perfect start. He had seven laps from now on to set a competitive time.
    But for doing so the young Bovier had to perfect any sweet spot he could find on the track. No easy feat given the lack of practice sessions in the FX400 league and this being his first seconds on the Fort Gale circuit.

    “Bovier seems to struggle out there” one of the circuit speakers noted, as Nico touched the same wall for the third time in three laps. “Cut him some slack, Jennter built a very conservative craft this year.” the other returned.

    The final lap started and Nico managed to squeeze a tight barrel roll out of the first jump leading into the tunnel. Another one for the straight into the hairpin right-hander and smooth turning out of it lead the pilot into his less favoured section. He winded through the first left-hander of the tunnel esses perfectly and grabbed an ideal amount of speed pads to leap onto the home straight.

    On his outlap Nico was briefed of the result by Kai “Great run, really!”
    “Thanks!” the pilot smiled into his helmet “But why the tone?”
    “We didn’t qualify.” Kai responded disappointed “I’m sorry mate. Return to pits.”

    Nico couldn’t help it but slammed his fist against the side of his cockpit.

    “Damn it!”

    The craft descended back into the pit box, Nico cut off the engine and took off his helmet while the staff started to work on it immediately.
    Nico marched back to the Jennter motorhome, avoiding the handful of journalists he would encounter.

    “Good run, Nico. Hope we can give you a proper craft next year.” Herman Graf, the Technical Director of Jennter Enterprises Anti-Gravity Racing Division said, as the Bovier entered the motorhome.
    He made a noise, then shook his head “No...sorry. I am frustrated because I was under the impression that this lap lasted.”
    “He knows that his attitude right now makes no sense.” Jonathan threw in, sitting a bit further away from the other two men and looked into his glass “But it is understandable.”
    “Oh it does make sense.” Nico turned to him “Anyway, I’ll be helping out the team to pack up already.”

    “Well, I will be watching the race, when I am at a track already…” Jonathan said, looking back into his glass again. For a moment he showed determination in his eyes “Let’s see where they will be at the end of the day.”

    Woah, this is awesome! Would I be right in assuming that this is the work of Crinale?

    Glad you like it ^^
    But this is not the work of Crinale, this is a fith party (Angelus, Crinale, Wyvern, Jennter and now these guys).
    But this doesn´t means that they are working with Crinale

    Default Faster Than Angels | Part 3.2

    Oh, you have no idea...

    Anyway, this part is a bit of a breather from the epicness that was the penultimate FX400 race at Fort Gale, I guess you can call it the aftermath. Enjoy!

    Also, the referenced album title of part 3.1 was "Rage Valley" by Knife Party.


    [Part 3.2] Angelus Must Die

    "I have some good news, and some bad news" Brandon told the group the day after the race.

    "It's about me, isn't it?" Tarah spoke up, "I messed up, eliminating Crinale, right?"

    "No, what happened then, happened. Pierre Belmondo allowed the use of weapons in the AG racing championship, something I believe to be a bit of a mistake. But we move on from the past, looking forward to the future.

    "Anyway," he continued, "The good news is that, thanks to Tarah, Crinale are one ship down, though, they most probably would have created blueprints, so they would have a craft ready for the final race, be it their remaining craft or one created to replace the destroyed one. The bad news is that they can still use both their pilots."

    "I still feel bad about losing my cool, though." Tarah mumbled.

    "You shouldn't be. We're human. We make mistakes. The best thing to do is to just move on, look to the future."

    "Wait, what about that other ship, the one that exploded before the race began?" Gareth piped up.

    "What? Oh, hahahahahaha! Funny story about that," Brandon laughed, "As much as I'd like to believe it, it was not an act of terrorism, [snicker] but a bit of technology fail!"

    "Huh? Technology fail?" Gareth said, confused.

    "Yeah, technology fail. David Mendel, Director of Wyvern, spoke to me after the race. He said that the cause of the explosion of Crinale's #2 ship was due to an experimental device that was to be used with their craft. It was stolen by Crinale and added to their craft instead. However, an extra piece of security software embedded into the device ensured that it would not work with any other craft except for Wyvern's. Therefore, Crinale's ship exploded. However, the craft seems to be in good enough of a condition that it would still be able to work, unlike their #1 ship, which was decimated by Tarah.

    Now, let's get to work, we need to be prepared for the final race of this season. We can do it!"

    [well damn, they wrecked my thing, how did they do that?]

    "That Angelus racer, Tarah Andrews, remind me to not mess with her again."

    "I think not. You will do as I say, for the greater good of Crinale. Sure, she eliminated you, but the risks you took were... shall we say, counterproductive."

    "I did what was necessary. I attempted to eliminate Angelus. You're going soft."

    "No, I am wise. You were behind Tarah in the original Katana ranks, you had no chance of beating her, through elimination or otherwise. However, there is one other person who can beat her."

    "And anyone else who stand in our way, for that matter."

    "Indeed."

    "So why did you not use them?"

    "I have my reasons. One being that I did not want to use them too much. According to the rules, the secondary pilot must be used for one half of the number of races in the season. I had to use you. I saved our lead pilot for the final race of the season."

    "I see your reasoning, and I understand. I assume our lead pilot will be using our secondary ship in the final race?"

    "Angelus destroyed the F0-RG7.1y. However, we were prepared for a situation like this. We have done the smart thing and created blueprints of both the 7.1y and the 7.1p. We will have the 7.1y up in less than no time."

    "Excellent. One more thing, though, who exactly is our lead pilot, anyway? I never see their face, they always wear that cool helmet with the neons and stuff. All I know is that they're the best we have."

    "Exactly. That is all you need to know. Oh, that, and they are completely human. We are not cheaters, unlike EG-R, their pilots had cybernetic enhancements. Now, we need to get to work. we need to prepare for Omega Harbour.

    We will see how they like our... special weapon."


    Believe me, you will need this breather. Part 4 will be more epic than you can imagine. So epic, it has to be split up into 4 separate parts!

    You will enjoy it, I guarantee it.


    As usual, 7 days...

    The Crinale boss seems to be: "Do what I want or you won't witness the next day"
    However, when is the last race (in the calender of the fanfiction)?
