(will be updated during the week)
- - - - - - - - - -
After the first "hype" things starting to settle down and XL version slowly reaches attendance values of the normal RTFR. Or maybe many didn't like the combo of first slick tyre car race. Or was it the open config with lacking help line? You'll never know,but still - there were plenty of racing yesterday,including ups and downs for quite few racers.
He did pick the combo and he used his choice well - L.Paddewwa set the fastest lap and led the most laps on his way to 2nd win in row,which happened also to have the biggest margin of victory - 19 seconds. Since it was his 2nd race and he repeated the performance,L.Paddewwa has now a 2 in all his stats. The highest in rating from attending racers was Spencer,who improved his best postition in both qualifying and race to 2nd and took his 3rd top5 finish,leveling up with M.Rukmanis at the top of this chart. Camoradi finished 3rd,which is also his best ever finish after improving also his best qualifying result,he finished 6th in his previous attempt. The list of best position improvers does not stop - 4th was Adam,who improved from 8th,but 5th - Sende,who improved from... Well,it was his 1st race actually.
* FUN FACT OF THE MONTH :
With 4th try,finally we got a penalty free race - that's deffinitelly worth to be a fun fact!
* CLOCK PITTER OF THE RACE :
In yesterday's race noone was able to finish without any pitwork,so the mention goes to Adam,who stopped at the pitbox just for 10.01 seconds. Besides him only 2 other racers made the race distance without tyre change,while some had to change their popped tyres.
* FIELD RUSHER OF THE RACE :
Seems like this is starting to get as a trend - a wild card starter climbs most positions. Was the case also yesterday,this in person of Nick,who made progress of 6 positions and finished 10th. Interstingly more racers lost positions than gained (6 to 4).
* HONORABLE MENTION :
A driver who never ever competed in any Race Green Events races came by yesterday and jumped into top 5 finishers right away,accompanied by 2 teammates who did not join the qualifying nor race. No information what hides behind letters "NTR",but driver's name is Sende.
The XL event now goes to it's normal XL break - in 4 weeks we will have another race featuring slick tyre cars as the combination of the next race is already picked - FO8 at Westhill International,which is not an unfamiliar combo of RGE,as it was used in round 1 of 2015 VERL (for some reason results screenshots are vanished,but spreadsheet with official results can be found via VERL2015 forum thread). It was a 200km race back then,completed in less then 1 hour,which means that we will have a bit longer race!
But if we look towards closer future - the normal RTFR will be back already next tuesday,also with some slick tyred car,info as always during weekend.
PS. To avoid the event turn into "one man show",following rule will be added - noone will be allowed to pick combo more than 3 times in row. In case someone wins the 4th race in row,the combo selection will be given to 2nd place finisher and that as long until there is a new winner. Same applies to 2nd place finisher if he finishes 2nd 3 times in row with same winner or even wins,the choice will be given further.
