/ Event rating and other statistics
(will be updated later this week)
The S3 era of LFS has been opened also in RTFR and there was quite big interest into first sanctioned racing event at the "new" Rockingham track. Best from all was without doubt A.Valta,as he was the fastest in both sessions and led all 19 laps,scoring his 4th win,5th pole position and 5th fastest lap of the race,also finishing in top5 for the 7th time. Despite starting from 2nd row,M.Kapal was the closest challenger in race (14th closest finish of RTFR),but never found a way past race leader,so he had to settle for 2nd position,24th top5 finish for him,6th top5 finish in Botsi's count with yesterday's 3rd place finish. 4th in final results was M.Zandmanis,which is his 9th top5 finish,but top5 was closed up by highest rated driver between today's participants - Y.Laprevotte,who scored his 15th top5.
On a side note - there were few negative aspects during yesterday's race. While driving deeper towards rear end of field,I noticed way too many contacts between racers ahead. It's understandable,that the barely 12 meters wide track is not enough for all to fit in within 50 meters track lenght while driving with race speed,this means more caution should be taken when racing in rather large field and everyone should try to avoid any contacts as much as possible. Also few drivers misused the liberty of chatting too much - Race Green Events normally does not forbit chatting,but a lot of useless binds pressing or discussing every single detail while in race is really distracting for those,who does not want to block messages and leave them on for some casual communication (like "sorry for hit","good pass" or similar). Especially this won't be tolerated from retired drivers,who wants to play commentators - such actions will force me to kick or even ban those keyboard happy spectators. So please keep the chatting to minimum,as I don't want to go nazi way and award every chat line with penalty!
With this race RTFR has completed the racing of year 2015 - we had a total of 24 races in this year,visiting all LFS environments,using all LFS cars,where total race distance was just over 1800 kilometers (co-incidentally it's also the distance between my current living place to home town
). Average attendance was 13 drivers per event (ranging from 5 to 40 uring different events),which might not be a big number,but sometimes you don't need to finish ahead of 30 others to have fun from racing,right? Also we have 4 newcomers to RTFR winners club,which is now extended to 44 members.
Race Green Events wishes to all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
- we will resume normal racing in 3rd january with 2nd round of AWS,while the next RTFR will be 2 days after that. But for those,who want to let off some steam and jump into contactful car conflicts - we offer the traditional x-mas crashfest "This is Crashmaaas !!!
" in 26th december!
