League organizer update: From now on there will be a new representer and league organizer from Lithuanian side. It will be Laurynas Matonis who will be replacing Modestas Runas. M.Runas is not a representer from now on.
This was decided due to the fact that M.Runas is busy nowadays and has no time to help in organizing etc. Everything was talked through with all the organizers and M.Runas agreed to give his place to L.Matonis.
So, if you have any questions, you can also ask Laurynas now.
And Laurynas will also be broadcasting the rest of the season in case Tommy can not come to the race.
In the name of all administration team, we would like to wish you all Merry Christmas and best of luck in 2012 - all the best in real life and, of course, on track, fighting for the victory at Baltic Cup and various other leagues.
I was thinking about that. It won't start until spring anyway, but I think I'll talk to other organisers and we'll have a poll if there will be interest in having another season. So yea, just follow this forum and some news will come in summer I guess.
No new info to be told. We have discussed it already with other admins and there is no interest at all to this. And the "5-grid-per-country" is not because of organisation stuff - it's because obvious things - LFS is dead. I can start a poll here if you want a new season, but we wouldn't start soon - it needs preparation and at best, it would start in autumn (would be stupid to do it in summer). The basic rules and standarts would have to change too.
Obviously, it would be awesome to have another season, but the golden times are over..The veteran drivers (most of them) are inactive and it simply wouldn't be the same. The competitive scene is somewhat gone at this moment and it wouldn't motivate people to push themselves to the uttermost limit.
Back at 2009, when I really wanted to drive this league, I didn't get the chance, just because I was the slowest possible Latvian driver out there! But, hey, at least I had the chance to do the qualifying..
When you look back at 2009, 2010, 2011, you can just see the amount of great drivers from the Baltic states. But now?..Some of them don't play LFS anymore, because they might have rl relationships or some other stuff. Some of them have gone to other racing simulators!..or simply because LFS is an outdated simulator.
For the sake of nostalgia, you can find some pictures by andRo and other people from previous seasons. Those pictures surely hold some great memories back then.
In my eyes, it was not just about the competition, but also about being a bunch of friendly guys united in one large community!
I've never had the chance to drive in this Cup, but just watching some videos produced by Skirmantas and Firemike..it truly shows what an awesome event it has been in the past seasons...surely a thing to remember! Proud to be a member of the Baltic states
