(Re)introducing?

Hi, my name is Daniel and I'm four decades on this planet. Born and raised in The Netherlands, it must've been 1984 or 1985 when the F1-virus got me. As a kid, every sunday morning I'd watch SKY television (Free-to-air in those days) for cartoons: He-Man, M.A.S.K. and for me the most important: Transformers (G1). After this string of cartoons, the British broadcaster would regularly switch to a Formula One race.

The first vivid memory I have is the Lauda, Prost, Senna podium in Zandvoort 1985. Then, it was Nigel Mansell's tyre explosion in Adelaide during the 1986 title decider. By 1988, one could say I was a regular follower: there was sympathy for a certain Ayrton Senna, but I adored Ferrari particularly #28 Gerhard Berger. We're three decades onward and I still favour La Scuderia over anything else. I support a team, not a particular driver. Ever since there was Grand Prix Circuit (1988) on the PC, I've been hooked on F1 games: whether it was Geoff Crammond's, the elder EA Sports ones, or now Codies: the more F1, the better.

I would like to (re)introduce Career Mode Storytelling. Basically creating an alternative F1-history by sharing your experience and results and mold it into a story; what would be the best part of the forum to do such a thing? Much what the likes of Aarava, Taimetmarduk, or Tom97 are doing, but mostly written text and screens, no vids.

Where could I start making such a thread? It's basically playing through all codemasters' games, that way building a 200-300 GP career...
