The final XL race of this year featured the first appearance of the most unpopular car of LFS,which is also the only street legal real car - Raceabout. It has it's own specific handling characteristics,some like it,some not.
It was the 2nd race in row with a hungarian driver being the fastest in qualifying,this time it was L.Kovács,who earned his 2nd pole position,2nd fastest lap of the race and also was able to convert his pace into race win putting also Hungary in race winners list. L.Kovács is the 15th different winner in the RTFR XL's 2 years history,he also scored his 3rd top5 finish and set the 10th biggest margin of victory. The defending winner J.A.Katila finished 2nd,earning his 9th top5 finish,right behind (or over finish line actually beside) him was his compatriot Unite,scoring his 3rd top5 finish. 2-time winner Spiky crossed the finish line 4th,4 top5 finishes for him now,5th was Sobis,improving his only previous finish here by 1 position.
* FUN FACT OF THE MONTH YEAR :
106 - the total amount of drivers taking part in RTFR XL during 2 years of the event.
75 - the total amount of drivers finishing at least one race.
48 - the amount of drivers finishing a race in top 5.
15 - total number of winners of RTFR XL
14.5 - the average number of drivers per event
7 - amount of double winners of RTFR XL and nations having a winner in this event.
1 - the amount of drivers having more than 2 race wins,still unchanged since 6th RTFR XL in june 2017 - will this be changed during next year?
* CLOCK PITTER OF THE RACE :
And once again T.Soini is the clock pitter of the race with 10.12s work free pitstop,0.01s slower than Spiky's refuelling pitstop,which was the shortest overall.
* FIELD RUSHER OF THE RACE :
A total of 3 drivers were able to advance 2 positions between start and finish,J.A.Katila finished highest between them,therefor is field rusher of the race just like in last race.
* HONORABLE MENTION :
2nd fastest lap in qualifying but no top5 finish - just 6th place for T.Soini despite setting 4th best lap in race. Pace is there,but seems like something was missing for Mr.Steady yesterday.
