So here's a thread for us to share some stories, talk about races we believe might've been fixed, any conspiracy theories related to any kind of racing (including those related to the fans of certain series, TV coverage, the business side, the technical side, etc. as well as the racing itself). Teams spying on each other, drivers being on blacklists, and so on. Drivers getting screwed out of wins by unfair penalties, races being manipulated, companies paying off designers not to publish designs that would ruin them, etc. Any series from any era in motorsports is fair game, no matter how old, ludicrous or unbelievable you think most will find the tale. Let's get a good discussion going.
So, are there any races that stand out to you that you think might've been fixed? Anything strange or suspicious that's ever caught your eye when watching a race or reading about something? Do you have any good stories to share? All stories, no matter how cynical or sinister, are fair game here. Don't be shy.
One thing - PLEASE refrain from talking about races that we KNOW were fixed, such as Singapore 2008. There are already threads for that discussion, and it derails every thread it's ever mentioned in. I would never want to discourage a healthy conversation, but that is one that has already been had more times than is needed. This thread is for posters here to share a few tales, present their own little case as to why they think a certain race might've been fixed or manipulated, get suspicions they've held for a long time off their chest, etc., NOT for discussion of events we know for sure happened. Who knows, we might all learn some interesting stuff.
