I'm not in any leagues but if I was it would be #44 because that was my number when I played hockey.

And since you asked, yes, I was a defenseman.

Bit offtopic but I usually played in center or right wing. ;)

My favourite racing number is #92, because:

-I was born in 1992
-Valentino Rossi's number is #46, so 46*2=92

My favorite racing number is #26, because I've used Brett Bodine's diecast car in a stock car racing card game league a few years ago.

Actually i don't know why some many drivers take #23 (Ivo, HSC-King, me, ...), i just like it :)
Otherwise i take #6, which i had in my trackmania team for quite a long time.

You know that there´s something mysterious going on with the numbers 23 and 5?!

Here are some examples:

The earth´s tilt is 23,5 degrees
The edge length of the cheops-pyramid is 230,5 meters
Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times.
2-3 and 5 are the first prime numbers.
The obelisk in paris is 23 meters high.

EURO:5+21+18+15=59=5+9=14=1+4=5
U.S.A.:21+19+1=41–4+1=5
NATO:14+1+20+15=50=5+0=5
UNO:21+14+15=50=5+0=5 :scared:

In average every 23rd wave which hits a beach is twice as large as average waves.
e = mc²: 5 (e) + 13 (m) + 3 (c) + 2 (²) = 23
The X-ray was invented in 1895 (1 + 8 + 9 + 5 = 23...and Wilhelm Röntgen died in 1923.

And the list goes on and on....

So to those who chose the number 23: You are simply a part of something bigger you are simply not aware of :twisted:

#8: I forget why, but it's my lucky number :goodvibes:
Other racing numbers I just kind of make up or use as I need to.

Post Re: How did you decide your racing number?
I try to select one of four numbers, in this order:

#91: The "9" is my favorite number, the "9" is the effort I put in, the "1" reminds me that there's always room for improvement (9+1=10), and 91 is typically a high enough number that few people pick it, so I usually get it.

#38: Big round numbers makes me look tough.

#9: If I'm really, REALLY confident, I'll take it. My preferred number, but since I don't race particularly well, I rarely try to get this.

#71 / #44: Backup numbers from fictional hockey players I used to have.

#46, it's the number that I've used in other racing games for a while. Not sure why, though :scratch:

Post Re: How did you decide your racing number?
I usually decide nowadays by rolling two 10-sided dice, since I play Dungeons and Dragons with my real-life friends. It's good when I can't decide on a sign-up number, or if my #76 or #9 is taken.

5 has been my "lucky number" for a long time, so I usually use some variation of it... 15 or 55, etc.

Szmajli, does that mean you play RB? I didn't know football was popular in Hungary at all...

Post Re: How did you decide your racing number?
My favorite racing number is #9, why ??

-My birht 1998. September (9)
-When I'm 9 years old I was have first ice hockey training
-When I'm have 9 months I was on my first speedway match
-9 is number of first driver in home team in speedway
But I don't know why in unihockey im play with #9, if 9 is a number of snipers :D

This is my theory of my racing number :D

My racing number is #38 because it's the last two digits of my college student registration number...

Just disregard me in #76, it won't happen anyway unless I want to channel Pac Racing Club from Ridge Racer Type 4 :v

Well I won't need the last 2 digits of my secondary school's exam number anymore, if I use my college ID number just like you do (and yes, I'll be starting college as well), I might have to change my number to #92.

Off-topic: Also, you can use their student ID card to pay for stuffs on loads of retails too :lol:
