The tougher and trickier combo deffinitely had it's effect on attendance,but 20 cars grid is still enough competition for the most skill levels,where most had their races for positions through out the race.
3rd race brought us a new winner - L.Paddewwa representing no country set the best time in qualifying beating everyone by 0.4 seconds,had the also the pace to take the win in race,even if he had to retake his lead in lap 2 in same way and place he lost it in lap 1. L.Paddewwa took from his 1st appearance in RTFR XL the "full package" - pole position,win and fastest lap of the race. 2nd best was Troy,who led 1/3 of the race before doing his mandatory pitstop - he improved his previous best position 9th scored in previous race and also is now responsible for closest finish of RTFR XL - 6.85s. Last race's polesitter L.Kovács qualified on front row again,but unlike in last race,he started this one - led first lap,but lost 2 positions during remaining 41 laps and finished 3rd in his 1st completed race here. After missing previous race,Pete returned with 4th places - both in qualifying and race,improving his best results in both sessions,but M.Rukmanis is the only driver to repeat top 5 finish and it's his 3rd top 5 finish already (leading this stat column now) - funny that he can thank his new teammate for the position as Ł.Mikoda completely ignored pit exit line and scored 5th position losing 10 seconds penalty...
* FUN FACT OF THE MONTH :
This time the fun fact focuses on diversity of nations represented in last race - top 7 finishers represents 7 different countries and even 2 continents. Remaining field adds another 6 different nations.
* CLOCK PITTER OF THE RACE :
This time the mention goes to organizer himself - RGˆRony stopped for 10.13 seconds without any pitwork,while shortest legal pitstop was 0.07s faster,set by another latvian M.Rukmanis.
* FIELD RUSHER OF THE RACE :
Being known as a trouble free racer,T©L Gutholz /2 received a wildcard to start the race without qualifying from 20th position. He gained 4 positions and finished 16th,which is the highest climb of 3rd RTFR XL.
* HONORABLE MENTION :
It could have been 7th postion in finish but connection gave up with 10 laps to go - still worth to notify the performance of TEM/Y.Laprevotte,as in this field not many could get this high in the positions list.
4 weeks break between the Extra Large RTFR races,next combo is still unclear - winner did pick the next combo,but during the day he changed his choice before being accepted,so he still has to confirm the last choice.
