As predicted,the Winter 200 is the round with highest chance to bring some changes in the league table,as at speeds this high things can go wrong much faster than anywhere else. It didn't look like that from the start though - the winner of both previous rounds did score a bonus point for fastest lap in qualifying,even if it was only shared,and the first half of the race was led by duo consisting from both front row starters. But the 1st RGA-LLM duo was chased and later catched up by other RGA-LLM duo,and this is where the winner came from - Sobis survived the 1st highspeed incident and avoided the 2nd one to become sole leader of the race and cross the finish line first. Michal and Mensafest spend most of the race together with slingshot drafting,passed the cars having an incident and in final lap Michal was able to get a secure gap to score 2nd place finish,leaving Mensafest 3rd. At the last lap sprint to finish line Eza kept his car ahead of Rony for 4th place.
So the round 3 brought back some intrigue to championship - the table lead was cut from 11 points to 1,while V.Laguckas still leads over his countryman Sobis. Dzidoris is still 3rd,but the gap to lead has been increased to 16 points and he has 3 other drivers within 3 points from him. The FXR Master standings now has a new leader - the winner of this round Sobis now takes the lead and has 3 points advantage over V.Laguckas,the winner of this award will be decided on dirt in Blackwood RXGP. Sobis takes also the lead in Oval Trophy standings,which will be decided already in next round,also on dirt in Dusty 100 of Westhill. There has been a lead change also in chase for Rookie of the Year award - the standings now are led by Mensafest,Unite is 2nd 7 points behind.
LLM scored less points than in previous 2 rounds,but still most from all teams,so they keep extending their lead,it's now 32 points over RGA,3rd position is now taken by WCL another 17 points behind. In Nations Cup the situation is similar - Lithuania keeps pulling away from the competition and has now 38 points lead. 2nd still is Finland (they were 2nd after round 2,but due mistake it was not shown so in table),while Czechia leads 3 nations points tie for 3rd place on tiebreaker.
Next round will feature left turns only again,but for the first time in AWS history it will be run on a dirt oval. Round 4 Dusty 100 of Westhill will be a start of 2nd half of the season and also 1st of 2 Cross Challenge rounds. But it will be also the deciding race for Oval Trophy and the middle one of 3 RB4 Master rounds. Racers will be introduced to the brand new 600 meters short oval in classic shape featuring 4 turns and 2 straights,but to spice things up,there is some elevation between turns. Due low amount of testing,there is a small miscalculation while building pit entry and exit lanes - they will be slightly widened before raceday to ensure safer and damage free entry and exit to and from pits.
