Well,you gotta set your priorities straight! Wink


On serious note: Fern Bay Green reversed configuration has a first chicane that can be cut very easily. Therefore the tyre stack has been increased to motivate drivers not to cut track. I don't want to go hardcore and put barrier in the chicane and it is possible to clear the tyres away,that's why everyone should stay fair and keep at least 2 tyres (full width of them) on the legal surface (curbs count as legal surface too) in case the tyres have been cleared by driver ahead. Anyone cought using advantage will receive penalty - in qualifying loss of the points brought by the fast lap,in race 10 seconds penalty added to finish line (or more if advantage gained very often).
you could had put some concrete pieces on ground, where you can still cut, but with price of suspension damage.

But then again, no shortcutting at all, why not just leave as it is? Does not everyone respect this rule already?
I think those flying tyres may cause some accidents in the race.
I didn't expect to end the race on 2nd lap Big grin. No hard feelings toward Michal, stuff happens and I wasn't really expecting much from this race Smile .

The 3rd year of RTFR XL was opened in Fern Bay - in it's fast and tricky configuration named Green reversed. The selected car FBM,a very light single seater car without much power,but still made some difficulties for many here as shown by finishing rate - from 13 starters only 6 cars crossed the finish line with 7th completing the 50% requirement to be in results.

It was only the 2nd XL race appearance for 13-time RTFR race winner Botsi (started 2nd,but did not finish the race),but he made it count - he earned pole position in qualifying and led 49 of 70 laps in race also setting fastest lap of the race. On his way to victory lane Botsi lapped the whole remaining field,becoming the 3rd driver to do so. J.A.Katila was 2nd extending his top2 streak to 3 races,10th top5 finish for him,his teammate T.Soini repeated his best finish by finishing 3rd,7 top5 finished in his account. The best non-finn was the swede Snoopy in 4th place,4 top5 finishes in his account and top5 was closed by Rony,14th top5 finish in his account.

* FUN FACT OF THE MONTH :
The race was finished by drivers only from 4 most northern Baltic sea countries,despite having starters also from UK,Canada,Czechia and Lithuania.

* CLOCK PITTER OF THE RACE :
New year,same deal - T.Soini is again the clock pitter of the race,as he was the only one to make a stop without work (10.51s),his teammate J.A.Katila had a shorter stop,but did refuel.

* FIELD RUSHER OF THE RACE :
Starting from back of the field is the best chance to get in his paragraph. From 13th to 5th - a +8 performance by Rony.

* HONORABLE MENTION :
3rd fastest lap,good overall pace,but few incidents including blown tyre entering turn 1 with 2 laps to go - the new FFM recruit Kamikas still did not gave up and completed the race as last running driver. Better luck next time!

RTFR XL now goes into it's normal 4 weeks break,next race combo has already been sumbitted - it will be the 2nd appearance of the slowest LFS car UF1 and it will be run in Westhill National. But already next week normal RTFR will return with one of the road legal cars. And before that already this sunday - 3rd round of this year's AWS season,the Winter 200,which will start AWS 2 race streak on ovals. More details in AWS2019 thread in this forum,signups still open!

The slowest car of LFS turned out to be relatively popular despite it's handling characteristics - it was the biggest grid since the 1st event of last year. There was plenty of close racing initially,but naturally the field stretched out at some point of the race and the racing with some exceptions was mostly trying to catch or to pull away.

Just few days before the event Botsi set a new world record in this particular combo officially claiming his advantage over competition - and he proved to be right by earning pole position in qualifying and winning the race allowing the best of the competition to slip by only for a short moment in 1st/2nd lap. He also set the fastest lap of the race - all these achievements are his 2nd while he is now the 5th driver to achieve a winning streak in RTFR XL. R.Kardol was the defending UF1 winner and he did all what he could to defend the honor - he even slipped by Botsi in the main straight at the end of 1st lap. Soon after that he had to concede and settle for 2nd position,which is his 5th top5 finish. It was 2nd XL race for J.Pickard and he did much better than before,upgrading 8th position to 3rd as his best finish here. 1st time joiner Maddee finished 4th,5th was Sermilan at the finish,but his pitstop was way too short and he received time penalty,so 5th position was taken by Rony,who collected 15th top5 finish.

* FUN FACT OF THE MONTH :
The race distance is calculated quite simply - 75 minutes are divided with world record laptime and the result is always rounded up to full lap count. When distance was calculated for this race,the WR at the time was just 0.01s slower to make the race 1 lap longer (WR was improved after info was posted). Currently the situation is the same for the selected combo for next race - if world record gets improved before info is posted,the race will be a lap longer than it would be without improving.

* CLOCK PITTER OF THE RACE :
Yesterday Maciek pitted for 10.10 seconds without any pitwork before racing back to action - noone else got a shorter legal pitstop.

* FIELD RUSHER OF THE RACE :
Unite started from 11th position and finished 6th in final results - a +5 positions gain for him.

* HONORABLE MENTION :
This time we'll honor the first time driver at this event with 2nd lowest online experience (lowest had Dyanamite,but he retired after 2 laps) between the competition - Dstan set the 9th best lap during yesterday's race,but finished 12th. Hopefully a valuable and interesting addition to his 27 megameters of online distance.

In 4 weeks the next RTFR XL will have another front wheel drive car - the turbocharged FXO will be run in urban environment of South City in it's longest official configuration. Between now and then there will be 2 normal RTFR races,the first one of these will be run using one of the road legal cars,more info on that as usually in the weekend before it. But during that weekend the 5th round of AWS2019 is scheduled with it's most classic race - FXR rallycross at Blackwood. Signups are still open (info in AWS thread),but it will be the final race where new drivers can still jump into AWS action.
