Splendid! Despite this round's layout was more like rallying than going flat, ( don't worry, it was very fast track anyway ) nothing much changed since last round. Other than Willi the will.i.am aka Mr. Flat Out! managed to hit Grand Slam! Insane lap time at the end and "well played" - mode during race, with UM21's brain fart situations and overall aware of car's balance secured Willi to make on top, once again. Only UM21 could have had stand a chance at least slightly, but not enough. Great performance!
Indeed, 2nd place is taken by the host itself, but was no match against Willi's LX6 Junior car. Despite XR GT's insane top speed ( over 210km/h ), it was not enough agile and was too heavy. On top of that, too much fuel also ruined the experience of the race, as more fuel means more weight and more weight means lesser speed towards to ramps. Still, clear 2nd place.
Clear 3rd place is taken by T. Soini, who did select same car as Willi, but was no match at all to top pace. However, steady driving and another podium once again, can't really complain due the strategy being to be waiting someone on top making critical mistake. That didn't happen this time.
Absolutely clear 4th place is taken by Jay from Finland ( LFSW: jh89 ). He did select XF GTi, which was somewhat surprising selection as being 12 seconds slower than LJ6 per lap. Should Jay had selected XRG or LJ4 or LJ6, who knows. However, it is proven before that fastest car is not always fastest here. Anything can happen, especially on longer races.
There were 3 another races involved, but no one of them managed to set time in qualification nor finished a race. Let's see some highlights. This time, no videos, pics only.
Here is the start grid. Yes, floating chalk, lovely! After lights hit green, MaitoMies gets very good start.
Therenaultguy (LFSW: therenaultguy ), gets stuck on mud section. Another victim is taken by this cruel, cruel section. But he was not the first guy to DNF. As being stuck, he kindly waited 60 seconds before InSim forced to take him out due the state of idle too long time.
MaitoMies (LFSW: Pena70 ), is the first official guy to DNF. Too fast on banked section called "connector". He attempted to use !flip command once, but no chance as car was on "permament void". No chance at all to get back, DNF...
Imppa22 ( LFSW: Imppa22 ), had a lot of troubles to survive at least one lap. Rolling the car, hitting objects and spinning around. But clutch overheat was the official problem to DNF. Happened on just before last corner of lap 1. 5th place would have been, but nope... DNF.
But the fight for the victory was on, for several laps. As mentioned, it was not enough. On lap 4, UM21 made a pitstop, and willi made pitstop on lap 7.
Despite several cars were open, only 3 different cars were seen: XF GTi, XR GT and LX6 Junior.
All 4 guys who set time in qualification, managed to finish the race.
Cars were totally unbalanced.
Only one !flip command were used, MaitoMies ( Pena70 ) in first lap.
Thank you for participating race! Next round will be on Thursday, set on time as 19:10 UTC. Car will be formula and track will be oval. What is it? You'll see it in here, tomorrow! ( it is your time to arise and shine, fordern
