  PADDOCK NEWS - Round 1

Editor's Notes: Covering Round 1 of the F1-S-R 1975 Vintage F1 Season. Recap of the race events, and interviews with some of the main drivers in the race. Also, a review of the debuting drivers, and a final message for a series and forum regular, who had a good excuse to miss the race.

The layout was still very basic at this point, ideas were still forming as to how to improve and add something new to this, these changes would appear in the next issue...

  PADDOCK NEWS - Season preview

Editor's Notes: This is the 'preview' issue for F1-S-R's 1975 Vintage F1 Season, after a successful 1974 season. Peter Blom was the 1974 champion, hence making a big story out of his switch.

This was the first attempt at a PDF version, so whilst looking quite plain, it helped me decide this was the right choice to take for future issues. It also marked me starting to interview people specifically, rather than taking tidbits from the forums and re-purposing them.

  What is 'PADDOCK NEWS'?
Dateline: December 2012

I'd been intrigued by videos a friend had shown me, they were highlight videos of a racing league he was taking part in. It was the 1974 Formula 1 Season mod for rFactor, hosted by F1-S-R and that era of Formula One is something i'm falling terribly in love with (more on that in a future post). So when he mentioned there were spaces open to race in it, I dived in headfirst and made my 'debut' in Round 3 of their championship.

The video of Round 3, I am driving the white/green 'Pinch Plant' car.

It was love at first sight. I was surprisingly competitive and finished my first race, and more importantly found the community of racers to be very welcoming. Friendly people willing to help someone new out, so it was a refreshing change from the usual business of 'figure it out yourself, stranger'.

After the next round, one of the leading drivers, Peter Blom, started a thread called 'PADDOCK NEWS', and was reporting on the races in a very Autosport-style. I.E these were 'real' races, and not 30 dudes playing a game. The style is something I try to do in skin-making and in crafting my DSC Motorsports team's history - trying to be authentic enough that a casual viewer would mistake it for something real at first glance. So to see someone else embrace this idea was cool to see.

I offered to Peter that I would make a cover for him to use. It was well received, and we started to talk about it a little more... then one thing led to another, and by the next 'issue', I was running the whole thing!

For that 1974 Season, it bounced around a little, going from big stories, to just headlines, and everywhere between. But for the upcoming 1975 Season, I decided that if I was to continue doing it, i'd have to make it worth reading. Which is where I began to make an actual 'magazine' out of it, instead of just a forum post. Pictures were added, racers were interviewed for the magazine itself to add something new, the covers were increased in size and made into a proper template for easier editing. Finally, I turned it into a PDF so people could download it, and the feedback so far has been amazing from the league members.

My intentions of posting it here are numerous, but mainly so that people outside of the F1-S-R Forums and Leagues can see and read it for themselves, and hopefully bring more love and attention to a league and site that is very deserving of it.

  This website
I've figured that I would give my site some focus now, give it a direction and more importantly give it some content.

It's mainly going to focus on the online races I do, either solo, or under the name of DSC Motorsports. This can range from race reports from online racing leagues, to new cars I paint or create as DSC Motorsports cars, or other paint-jobs I have done for other people that I am particularly proud of. It will start with current events, but I will make an effort to go back and document previous events.

In addition, I will also be posting a fanzine I make for download. It is called PADDOCK NEWS, and is a Autosport-like magazine for the F1-S-R 1975 Vintage Racing League. It's something I am very proud to work on and look to be expanding on the idea in the future.
