What are some of your favourite things to do in your free time?

Everyone I thought I would ask you another question that is easy to answer what somethings you like are to do in your free time

Some of the things l like to do in my free time is watch some movies that have not seen before and I haven’t had any time to watch the movies until this free time. Most of the movies I watch are comedy or action movies the most recent movie that I have watched in my free time is Black Panther as I didn’t go to the cinemas to watch I thought I would just wait for it to get released on blu ray or DVD to watch I’m not going to give away any spoilers for the movie if any people that haven’t watched it yet but I really enjoyed the movie.
Another thing I like to do in my free time is play video games and the types of video games I play vary from time to time so one time I might play sport types games like NBA or Cricket and another time I might play simulation or strategy games the game I’m play at the moment in my down time is Car Mechanic simulator 2018 which it start with a small garage and upgrade it and your skills as well so you will start by unscrewing nuts and bolts at one bolt in 3 seconds and be unscrewing them later in the game at 1 second.

I would also like to hear what you do in your down time do you do the similar to me or do something completely different and what do you like to do the most in your free time.

thanks for reading this post and hope you have enjoyed it and also reading about what I do in my free time.

Until next time

5 Top Events Every Motor Racing Fans Must Attend

Everyone I thought I would talk about the 5 top events every motor racing fan must visit. The list is in the order of my personal preference but they all are amazing and all should be visited throughout a true motor sports fans lifetime.

1. The Indianapolis 500 is one of the biggest motor racing events in the world. The reason I have chosen this event is because it is one of the biggest race in the Indy cars calendar and like all Indy car drivers they would like to win every race but this has to be the main race they would like to win. The Indianapolis 500 has been happening since 1911 and it is held every year on Memorial Day weekend which is in late May. If you watch at least one race you will notice the cars aren’t like other types of cars they are open-wheeled like in Formula one.

2. The Monaco GP which is happening this weekend at the time of me posting this. Like the Indianapolis 500 this is a race all the F1 drivers would like to win and all the F1 drivers look at when the fixture is released to see when the Monaco GP is so they can get ready for it. The race has been a part of the F1 Calendar since 1929 and the person that has won the most races there is the late and great Ayrton Senna with 6 race wins at Monaco. Formula 1 cars like the above mentioned Indy cars these race cars are open-wheeled.

 

3. Bathurst 1000 it is the second race of the enduro series the V8 supercars have every year and like all the Supercars Drivers say if they can’t win a championship they would like to win a Bathurst 1000. This race has been happening since 1960 and there has only ever been one person to win the race a record 9 times and that is the late and great Peter Brock he was nicknamed the king of the Mountain after he won it for the ninth time it is the longest race on the Calendar and it can last from anywhere from 6 hours all the way up to almost 7 hours. They race for a trophy named after Peter Brock now and the first ever person to win that trophy was Peter apprentice Craig Lowndes which was Craig Second ever Bathurst win in 2006. Like Nascar these cars weigh about a tonne and cost about $300,000 dollars so you don’t want the drivers to crash the cars as that is a lot of money to fix it.

4. The Daytona 500 which is the first event on the Nascar Calendar they have been racing here since 1959 and it has been won more times in a Chevrolet then any other car and Richard Petty has won it a total of 7 time. When the Nascar season has finished all the drivers know that the first race on the new season is going to be at Daytona and they can’t wait to get back into their cars and start the new season. Like in the V8 supercars they weigh about a tonne and these cost about the same almost $300,000 to race.

5. This would have to be one of the longest and toughest in the world and that would have to the Le mans 24 hour the first race was held back in 1923 and the time to get around the track then was a nine minute 39 second the time it take to go around the circuit now is a three minute 14 second which is pretty quick around a track that is 13.626 (8.467 Miles) there is one driver that has one the race a total of nine time and he is called Tom Kristensen and also he type of car that has one to most races is a Porsche at 19 race. The type of cars they race around range from Toyota all the way BMW m3 most of the cars have three drivers but you can have up to four drivers .

Thank for reading my post and I would like to hear your feedback and see if you have any other events that aren’t on the list that motor racing fans should visit.

Video of the week

We have decided to introduce a new weekly post to give you all a bit more of a background about the type of stuff we like/enjoy. It will be a weekly post with a YouTube video of something we have found during the week.  In some cases it could be something that the Mates Madness team could attempt in the future or a video either Matt or myself have found interesting.

For us Dude Perfect (the creators of our inaugural video of the week) is  one of the directions we would love to take Mates Madness in the future, I mean its a group of guys (mates) having mad fun doing stuff they clearly enjoy One of the reasons we created this site was for us to get out with our mates more, to encourage everyone else to spend more time with there mates and just for people to know they are not alone there are people out there like us who want to give guidance, confidence and motivation that we can all succeed.

The video I have chosen for this week is from Dude Perfect it is there most recent post which is a battle video they chose to make it a giant battle instead of a normal battle video. You can see what my favourite battle shot is which is under the video.

My favourite battle shot would have to be the car shot with them in the back of a pickup and trying to throw the giant dart at the giant dart board they had make.

If you have enjoyed this post I would like to hear the feedback and maybe you could recommend a video I could watch or a video with some challenges that you would like to see Matt and I attempt maybe even with other local Mates Madness fans and content creators involved in.

Until next time

Your Hero Growing up

Everyone I thought I would ask you a question that shouldn’t be too hard for you to answer.

My question to you all is who is or was your hero growing up? What did they do or what made you want to do the same as they did.

My Hero growing up and still is to this day is Craig Lowndes, the reason Craig Lowndes is my hero is because of how much he has achieved in Motorsport when he started racing in the Australian Touring Car Championship in 1996 only aged 22 winning his first Championship in that year. Then winning a second Championship only two years later in 1998 he then went back to back winning another Championship in 1999 making it a career total of 3 Championships won in 4 years. He has also won the Bathurst 1000 a total of 6 times to date and the Bathurst 12 hour twice. Lowndes didn’t win his second Bathurst 1000 until 10 years after his first one and that was in 2006 and he then went on to win three in a row.
At the time of me posting this he has just done his 650th start in a Supercars race and he is the only person to have done that so far. I reckon if he continues until the end of next year he will get to 700 race starts. But I’m think if he continues until the end of 2021 he will hopefully get to his race car number which is 888.

Craig Lowdnes is very much loved by the fans and he will take out his own time to have a chat with you to see how you are going and he will give you a signature if you asked him nicely. I went to the Adelaide 500 earlier this year and I asked him nicely if I could have a quick photo and he said sure you can see the photo of me and him below.

Check out the vintage Craig Lowndes footage below

Thanks for reading and I hoped you enjoyed reading about my Hero I would like to hear about your favourite hero hear and why they are you hero

Kieran’s Batman Wish list

Hey

Everyone as you know I’m a massive batman fan so I thought I would do a Wish list of some of the batman items I would like to get in the future to add to my Collection.


You can see above some of the items on my Wish list that I would like to get I will just need to save my money up for them and I will hopefully have most of the items when I’m at least 30 my favourite item on the Wish list is the probably the Batarang 3d light with it sticking out of the wall like Batman has thrown it at the wall.

I also like the Bat signal Desk lamp because how many people do you reckon would have the own Bat signal, I don’t think a lot of people would have one and I will hopefully become one to have a bat signal desk lamp.

another item I really like is the 1:32 scale bat mobile because it is small enough to fit in front of my 1:4 scale Batman  and it will add another Batman item to my Collection.

You can see with the picture below of a full-size batman statue and the height of it I don’t know how much it is but it one of my dreams to actually own a full-size batman statue as it will go with my 1:4 scale batman that I have and it would just add to my batman Collection.

If you would like to see what I already have in my Batman Collection you can do so by going to a previous post I’ve written about what’s in my collection which is http://kierans-batman-collection/

Thank you for reading and hopefully you enjoyed my post about my batman Wish list and I hope to have some of these items by at least the end of the year or the start of next year. I will keep you updated on how my Collection is going at the end of the year and you will hopefully see the difference from now and the end of the year.

Until next time

Whats Your Favourite Sport or Sports

Hey

Everyone I thought I would do another post asking what you favourite thing is, this time I thought about asking what your favourite sports are and why. I have a couple of sports that are my enjoy but my favourite sport that I like is Motorsport.

The reason Motorsport is my favourite sport is because you just don’t see one race the same every time you watch a race you might see that it has no safety cars or you might see another race where there are a lot of safety cars.

You will see different drivers in each variation of motorsport, yearly you can see drivers and teams leave the sport and also see some new drivers and teams come in, In some variations you might also see some past drivers from the sport come back part time and do enduro type events. For example in Australia Mark Skaife finished up in the V8 Supercars as a full-time driver but came back and drove in the Enduros of which the V8 Supercars have three races each season  Sandown,  Bathurst and the third at the Gold Coast. On his return Mark Skaife competed in this enduro races with his long time friend Craig Lowndes

I was very happy when I heard Mark was going to race with Craig as Mark was one of my favourite drivers at the time and Craig is my favourite driver ever. I think Craig will do the same as what Mark did when he retires and continue racing in the enduros and race with either Jamie Whincup or Shane Van Gisbergen as they should still be driving when he retires full time from driving.

The next sport on my list of sports I enjoy is AFL, between the teams the players abilities and coaching styles vary significantly causing considerable variations in each game watched. In one match a team could win by a big margin against one opponent and the next game they might have very nail bitting game no matter where the teams fall on the ladder but just due to how the teams match up.

Basketball is another sport I really get into, my favourite Basketball team is the Utah Jazz and I was very happy to see Donovan Mitchell I really rate him highly due to how quick and versatile he is. With him being able to help out his team mates where ever he can. You don’t always see that team first attitude in some of the players in the NBA. Why I like basketball is because if you want to you can go out and play with a friend or group of friends and put a pick up game together really easy.

Thanks for reading this post and it hopefully its help you guys understand me a bit more, why I like these certain sports. As always I would like to hear about what your favourite sports or sport are and why you like them.

Until next time Kieran

Showdown XLIV (44) Power vs Crows

Hey

Everyone with the Showdown being on of the biggest games in South Australia for Port Adelaide Power and the Adelaide crows the Showdown is regarded as one of the toughest games to play according to past and present Power and Crows players so I was not missing this game. You can see a video down below of the players running through the banners all the way up to the Showdown medal getting handed out along with the first ever Showdown shield that the Power and the crows played for.

The game started with port getting the first score on the board but the Crows easily responded with a goal of their own. They game was quite fast paced in some parts but very slow in the other parts it was tooth and nail from the very first bounce right until the final siren. After a stressful final minute with the Crows going ahead by a point with a goal with 50 seconds to go many Ports fans heart sunk then the unthinkable happened new Port recruit Steven Motlop showed some magic and kicked a goal 19 seconds later putting put back in front with 31 seconds to go, Port Adelaide won showdown number XLIV (44) making it all tied up in the showdown wins with 22 apiece.
At the time of me posting this I have hardly any voice of me screaming at goals getting scored or the umpires but hopefully by tomorrow morning it will be better.

Until next time

Whats Your Favourite Movie or Movie Series

Hey

Everyone I thought I would ask you all a question about what your favourite movie or movie series is.

As I went to do some shopping on Sunday the 6th of May I went into a shop to see what movies and maybe games I could buy and I found the Lethal Weapon collection on Blu-ray with all 4 movies for $20 and I thought that it was a good  bargain. I have seen all 4 of the movies but I was a lot younger then what I am now so maybe I will see some things in the movies that I didn’t see when I first watched them.

My favourite movie series would have the be the Fast and Furious Franchise as I have watched them about 15 times each, I have found something that I missed each time when watching them for the second time. Sometimes I find an error such as once I noticed a green screen in one shot that they forgot to take out of the movie and other times I pick up little facts which help me make sense of a past of future scene.

Is there any movies that you have watched a lot of times and saw something you hadn’t when you watched it the first time and thought that was something I didn’t see last time watch the movie.

Also, is there any movie that you have to watch when you not filling to well or just want a laugh. A movie I have to watch when I’m not felling to well or just need a laugh is the Bench Warmers it just so funny and it has one my favourite actors in it David Spade I also watch Happy Gilmore as well because of it having Adam Sandler in it and it was before he started making some not so good movies.

Until next time
