- 16.05.2012. - JAHOMBRE: Unplugged and Uncensored
Some of you may know him better, some (like me) maybe don't, so it's time to set things up, and clear it once for all!
I decide it to spare some free time, and make lagrer inteview with ou lovley Jahombre, so I'll aksed him 20 quetions in many topics, so seat back and enjoy of our Lion Leader - Jahombre! Cyrex: 1.
Few words about yourself? Age? Born town? Relationship status? Wife&kid? Work? Hobbies besides Trackmania? Drinks? Eats? Jahombre:
Ok Hello all,hehe ....
I was born at the 20th August 1974 as a zodiac sign Lion
in Lüdenscheid, 50km south of Dortmund (Germany) and I was then very small but now a happily single so without wife but I miss kids. And I have three cats, Malik ,Gaddhafi and Babsi, they are all my fans. In real life I am a lousy warehouseman inna wood wholesale but the worldwide best forklift driver there
, my hobbies are hearing music (Reggaemusic), making music,asking why is it all as it is and watching soccer (heartical BVB Fan) and boxing on tv or live on stage. I prefer to drink water or to much coffee, I also prefer at least to eat bread but I eat none meat, pork or fish.
Broccoli is the hammer! Cyrex: 2.
When you first hear about Trackmania and why did you decide it to buy it?Jahombre:
I had read about Trackmania in the beginning 2008 (TrackManiaNationsForever, the very best free download game for free man!) me,Jahmazan and Mimoun had it downloaded directly, and a few weeks later Catilo too, cause we all live together as fraternal friends and we bought it cause ........Cyrex: 3.
When you all 'fall in love' with it? Jahombre:
We met cool people in the late BBG Clan (R.I.P.) like Icke, LameDuck, Krümel, Quickies, Tina, MaSSa, Monty and BVB. We joined and drove good races, me, Jahmazan, Mimoun and Catilo was the FourLions as in real life before. The BBG Clan drove in F1 Style and that was that what we like and with all this nice guys,Tina and Krümel we were in love with Trackmania. Cyrex: 4.
When you decide to create online TM team? And how did you find members?Jahombre:
But then there were dark clouds over the whole BBG Clan!
(BBG means Bad Boys Germany I learned later). And something mystical, something weird wafted through the air.
Some were mad
, Some were crazy
but not the 4Lions, Icke, LameDuck, Krümel, Quickies, Tina, MaSSa, Monty and BVB
. The 4Lions knew it's time to go now and we gone inna cool and deadly style
. The Crazies threw stones behind
but they did not hit us
. But really ....... I have never decided to create a Trackmania Online Team. Cyrex: 5.
Tell us more about that starting moments of this team, making forum, buying servers, making lots of tracks, etc?Jahombre:
Not even at the beginning of 2009 where I and the other three decided that we are never more inna stupid clan, with sneaky tricks and politics, super obligation and members from strictly one Nation because every day I can see..... many people from germany.
But I man not as dumb as I look
and I have learned many things about Trackmania although I knew not what is a Link before 2008, the time before I've typed the first time on a keyboard. I was an enemy of the internet. But everything changed and I had built many tracks inna Formula One Style and there we want to go. And I said lets drive in our same color Red
. We had a FourLionsForum before to met our people there, and there we had sent our race results later.
And all my maps was online just sometimes, on the same PC where I was ingame.Cyrex: 6.
Who was at beginning with you all along and did you have any help?Jahombre:
Jahombre,Jahmazan,Mimoun and Catilo drove on.
In same colors, and I think thats why some guest asked us if they can join our Clan? From there on is our slogan, 'no Clan no obligigation' and after many questions I said .... why not? We have a Forum, Catilo got webspace, I have Ecclestone Talent and I would be the Ruler then. No obligations must be there. But we needed a Name and maybe Bob Marley
influenced me with his song 'Roots Rock Reggae' a little,hehe. It is a cool Name, RootsRockRacing. And they all came to us,
many BBG Members and others too.Cyrex: 7.
Why exactly did you name it ROOTSROCKRACING? Jahombre:
Cause Roots is the beginning of life man, and it is solid as a Rock and we all gonna Racing,yeah !!! Cyrex: 8.
Did you think that this will last so long and after many yeras will be still playing this game?Jahombre:
I just thought that I self drive Trackmania many years but not that I man together with such nice people the whole time, and for the future .... I do not even know what tomorrow will bring, I just even know that we are happy today and I hope tomorrow too, most important is the real life from all of us. But when the work is done and nothing better to do for the day, I want to be there for you and me then, and we drive cool races, I think .... whooooo? who is it who let us find together? So nice people here, for me small fish it is worth to do that all here. I am very thankful to the One who is responsible. How long it stays that way is not may making, I wanted so long as you want. Cyrex: 9.
Trackmania 2 seems to be very nice sequel of Trackmania United , and, according to number of drivers per race, has a nice future?Jahombre:
My thinking is that some Lions here does not recognize that the future of TM2 seems not so nice because of that we have many racers per race. But I do not care, because I know that NADEO will not make closing time made in love to us, they just can't keep their appointments. Remember ........ I man not as dumb as I look, and everything is gonna be alright.Cyrex: 10.
Where did you learn all this stuff about making mods, car skins, plugins, nice tracks, banners&stuff, etc? And how much time do you need to do that?Jahombre:
I learned all these things about 50 centimeters in front of my monitor onna hard wooden chair in my living room under the roof in a house with 6 families. And even if you not see me, many days I need the whole freetime, no no .... no need .... I use the whole freetime.
But I can not say how long I need or use for a skin or track, it is very different every time. But I am still in love with Trackmania that there is always a pleasure. Cyrex: 11.
Then you must be very satisfied when you see 30 drivers per race and everyone is happy with your Laps race with PITS and GRIDS?Jahombre:
Oooooouh yes I ............ You have to see how I sit on my hard wooden chair then.
With retracted belly, a breast like a rooster and a face like Napoleon. Cyrex: 12.
Hahaha.. But when mrs. Jahombre shows up in your life(and I know it will) and you get little Jahombres in your house, what then? Will you have time for us, or you will be saying: „RRR? What's that?“
Or you will be too as LameDuck and Krumel, so Mr.&Mrs. Jahombre will be driving in same team? Jahombre:
No........ when she come, I man out
. But when she came maybe is also peace in Palestine,you know?
So I can't imagine what could be with woman and me.
I have to live my life alone and I don't know why, I am a mocking bird with a Lionheart. Respect to all woman but they are also satisfied without me. But don't care, I man chose this way and I man here for you. Still happy and still strong.
No time to be depressed and RootsRockRacing is the best.Cyrex: 13.
I know there's a woman for you, just you didn't meet her yet! Even Slaven has a woman!!
Anyway, I wasn't in many online gaming clans, but here it isn't clan, it's more like family! I never encounter here any fights, any bad discussions, any bad words (expect Laurens, but he isn't part of this team so that doesn't count!), so it's very nice to be here with you, and especially on server where everyone is very polite! You must be very proud of that?Jahombre:
True true, As I said I man very proud but that is my ego, rather, I must be grateful, be thankful to you because there is nothing to be proud without your love for that what I do. I mean, not only I give something, we all do that and only that makes RootsRockRacing strong, stronger than before.Cyrex: 14.
They say that games ar for kids, but here we have major people over 30+ yeras, and they still have lots of fun playing and racing with each other! Maybe that's why is here always peaceful cause they are many 'older' drivers with family so they know how to behave? Jahombre:
I say NO !
No matter for me how old you are, just how you are. If you are peaceful, it does not matter how old you are. If you are a fool is it no matter too. You don't have to be grown for the things that matter. And all young people of RRR are very peaceful. Cyrex: 15.
Inded! Dome, Winner, Massa.. All of them nice young people!
You have many Champinoships so far, way before I came here.Any special Chamiponship that bring back good memorys? Formula Lions? 500 miles? Summer Cup? Rally? Other? Or it's GT on TM2 is best so far?Jahombre:
It was so many races that I ever use our Forum to remind me what was happen on each race, sorry.
But if you believe it or not, there was some races where I man beat MaSSa, however, he has become better and better and I have always remained the same. The DTM Season 2009 was the best to me until the TM2 GT series, the Summercup was cool too with many many racers and my virtual friend Andrey/Shilak is also a reason why I know such people like Cyrex,Slaven and TTCO or Sulfite and Remasy from SSR Cyrex: 16.
Any special driver you like to mention who aren't amoung us any more?Jahombre:
No, sorry..... all Lions are still present. Ouh wait............ Reh and RioRalle, do you remember?
Nice guys, and I feel bad a little about how I have treated them and TM2 is the reason why.
But they were always well. Cyrex: 17.
Yep, those two were very good on TMU, so hoping to see them in TM2 soon!
We all saw your 'THANK YOU' message after GT Season 1 Final Race, so no need to tell us once more about each member in team, but is there any thing that you can like to add? Maybe you like to see more posts in forum for those drivers that don't post often?Jahombre:
Could it be that you like that to see at least much as I ,man? hehehe
But it is ok, we all write really more than before.
Thank you again Newspaperman.
And more to add? I think of anything and the good Ideas have you at the moment and if I have an idea soon so I throw it on the table. Cyrex: 18.
Besides RRR Team, we have now lots of friends&partners who often play with us on our evetns, so that's one more good reason to continue having more evetns right?Jahombre:
Yes right, to find out who are the real racers, who like our style of racing cause we must all come together for having nice real life outimes. And RootsRockRacing is the Number One Station but that do not know all Real Racers today. Lets Racing and Racing and Racing with all we got to find out.Cyrex: 19.
Any idea when next GT Season will be started? As you can see in Flash News, Teams are very eager to start new Season? Jahombre:
I keep focus to EURO 2012 and I want no crash with each game. That would be the first own goal.
But I have not checked exactly when the games are
, so it could be that we start after the football EURO but no later then. I hope it is ok to all. More Information will coming soon for sure, I for myself are impatient too.
What I can say now is which Tracks will come to GT Series season 2, it will be GT Desert, GT Grindelald, GT Granada, GT GingSeng, GT Marionaco (Night), GT RootsRockRacing, GT Texas, GT Sauerland, GT Marrakesh, GT Addis Ababa and two more tracks I want to build. Cyrex: 20.
Ouuh, new tracks! Nice! And final Question will be not Question! Write what ever you wanna write, or sing us new song cause we all know that you have a gift for that, and in fact, you and Slaven must record some duet in future! Jahombre: Makes you not care
we will make us the fool one day
again but we really don't know when.
Me wanna write thank you
for this Interview
we put this through
but we never knew
when we that do
if a Killa Post will coming true
but it was really a plesure.
There you go my friends, hope you like reading this, and hope you now get more Info about one man who keep this under control here - our beloved Jahombre!
Hope you like this, cause more special news and new ideas are in my head, but for now, enjoy reading this.. RR Cyrex
