Welcome back to the wild, wild ride of The Amazing Car Race! When we last left off, our grease monkey turned racer, Brian, had just set off from our Raceview pitstop, engine roaring and spirit soaring.
The race is on, and every racer is for themselves. Brian, with the clunky engine of his old hatchback roaring, tears down the asphalt leaving a cloud of dust behind. The other racers are but a speck on the horizon, but he’s not one to back down. He’s got a race to win and a car to mend.
But then, disaster strikes – black smoke billows from his exhaust, and a guttural clanking sound shatters the silence. It’s that engine again, and it’s worse than before. There’s no choice but to turn around and head back to Raceview.
Suffering some major motor maladies, it seems! Brian’s making a U-turn and gunning it for some much-needed repairs.
Once back in Raceview, Brian gets in line for car service bookings at a Raceview mechanic. He’s right back where he started, except this time, the stakes are even higher. Time is ticking, and the race is still on.
The same mechanic from before pops the hood, scowls at the sorry state of the engine, and says, “This isn’t your regular lemon, mate. This one’s a diesel!” He rolls up his sleeves and dives right in for a diesel service.
“The engine’s got a cracked head gasket, a faulty injector, and the turbocharger’s just about had it,” the mechanic informs Brian, handing him a detailed checklist of everything he should keep an eye on.
Armed with newfound knowledge, a hastily patched-up car, and a fighting spirit, Brian waves goodbye to Raceview for the second time. He’s got a lot of catching up to do, but if there’s one thing he’s got, it’s determination.
And they’re off again! The race is back on! Can Brian catch up? Stay tuned to The Amazing Car Race to find out!
