FXO V8Supercar is the very first mod car that was used more than once in RTFR XL - however just like on first try,the race was not highly attended as the over 600 horsepower car is quite a challenge which many did not wanted to take. Tyres turned out to be object of strategy - even if everyone selected R4 rears,the field was mixxed about front tyre selection as some (and mostly front runners) opted for grippier but temperature troubled R3 while some went for more consistent R4.

Records are made to be broken - current longest ever winning streak of 4 wins in RTFR XL was done by L.Paddewwa in 3rd to 6th RTFR XL,this tuesday this record was tied by M who has a chance of breaking it 4 weeks later. The lithuanian led all 22 race laps,with that scoring also his 200th lead lap in RTFR XL (now 6th most all time),leading also the last one to score his 6th RTFR XL race win,tying True Alpha for 4th most. He scored also his 8th pole position (now sole 4th most),5th fastest lap of the race and 10th top5 finish. Previous winner of this car and also combo selector R.Kardol was just 2nd this time and that in both sessions,repeating his best result of this season,scoring his 49th top5 finish. True Alpha was 2nd in race temporary after climbing up the field due his usual low qualifying result,but lost it due longer pitstop,finishing 3rd at the end - that's his 17th top5 finish. Sean scored his best result in RTFR XL by finishing 4th,which is 1 position higher than his only other top5 finish,top5 was closed by Ayoub Maroc,who scored his 8th top5 finish.

* FUN FACT OF THE MONTH : not really fun at all from organization side - due to pretty much absolute lack of pre-event testing,this race had 1 lap shorter distance than it should had - distance is always calculated using best known laptime,however that was beaten during qualifying by full 4 seconds and improved even more in race. This led to shortest ever RTFR XL in terms of race time - with 75 minutes and 19 seconds the previous record was beaten by almost 40 seconds. If this lack of testing persists,we'll have to use qualifying time for distance calculation starting from next year (for non-standard combos only).

Only 1 driver finished this race without any pitwork,therefor Rony is clock pitter for the 2nd race in row. 10.12 seconds work free pitstop did not bring much effort though as he finished 12th due rejoin (wrong setup on start). One of other usual clock pitters attempted to do same and would succeed only if he would not had underestimated tyre wear...

+9 positions was the highest gain during the race,made by Michal "E-Challenger" Malek,who finished 8th starting from low 17th position,2nd best result was +5,achieved by 3 drivers.
