Re: 1st Race in RootsMountain GT 5th February 2012
Race Review - 1st GT TM2 race - RootsMountain
Ola RRR drivers, and greetings to all other drivers who drove this Championship!
Here we are, 2 days past since we drove our first TM2 GT race.. And what can I say? It was AMAZING!
28 drivers at the start, although Haze and BvB didn't started due their technical problems, but still.. 28 drivers!! And missing some consistent drviers too, like Massa, Morpheus and Slaven, so according for a succes in first race and very positive feedback, I may presume that next race can be over 30 drivers! Hope to live and see that!
Because of this large number of drivers, it's very imposibile to follow everyone on a track and watch them how they drive, so I will just wrote those interesting things on race, and honestly I don't have that amount of the time to see everything
But, anyway, this is just few sentences about race with some foto in it.. Hope you don't get mad if I don't mention everyone in the article
So lets start.. Btw, we have no. 1 rank driver here on the race with us! It was amp-Laurenš! And he was fast as hell.. He get pole postion, and Russian Mirosh get second place.. Dome2012 was third! In TOP10 there were Winner, Wessy, Icke and Alex from RRR drivers, and HOR-Marian, ADAC-Drive , and ars-Smile..
When lights went out, everybody had own fuel tactic, and Dome and Laurenš decide to go for a 20min fuel here.. We drove 40 laps here (plus a intro lap behind Safety Car) and in the end there were only 3 drivers that are much, much better than rest of us.. Dome, Laurenš and Monty.. Those three had a very nice race and epic fight, but in the end, Dome wins with only +0.58 secs of advantage over Laurenš, and Monty was third with +8.80 secs gap with Dome! What can I say.. This guys have skills!
Wessy was very good too! His 4-th place is good promise that even he can fight podium in next races! He may be old, but man, he can drive!
ADAC team was very good here! Drive finished 5-th and Tony was 8-th, so ADAC team can be pleased here! Icke was 6-th in the end with only +3.46 secs behind Drive, but with +3.61 secs ahead of Winner! In TOP 10 we also see Mirosh (9-th) and ars-Smile (10-th).. 11-th place goes to hpr-Marian!
There was a nice fight in the end betwen LameDuck, Alex, me and Jahombre, but LameDuck finished 12-th, Alex 13-th, me 14-th, and Jahomrbe 15-th!
NH90 was just one seconds better than Quickies, so he end up 16-th, and Quicky 17-th! Points also get 18-th remasy, 19-th Sulfite, and 20-th Andi..
Unfortenely DarkMan, Krumel and tbvivien didn't get any points
Also CoolDriving, K.O.Hasi and MidnightMan didn't finish! MidnightMan had a epic went off track on first corner on uphill sector, and K.O.Hasi went missing suddenly.. I supose it was a connection problem.. CoolDriving hits the wall at the top of the uphill in that chicane, and his car said "No more please", and than he decide to go to shower litlle eariler
In the end, it was a very good night! When you see this big turnout and positive feedback from everyone, you know this will be a good thing and interesting Champinoship! Too bad MaSSA wasn't here, just to see how he would driving here, but I know we will see him next Sunday
Maybe we aren't good as Dome, Laurenš or Monty, but with this large number of drivers, you can always find someone to fight with all race, and due that, there want be any boring race for anyone!!
To finish my first (short) race review, I can say one thing! WONDERFUL !! About 30 drivers every Sunday night will be driving this, so RRR make my Sunday nights, again, pleasant night in the week! Tnx RRR team for making this, and (I must say this in every article or I don't get payed
) BIG THANKS to Jahombre!
In next couple of pictures, you can see how that all look like Everybody was nervous on first start of the season! Very crowded in the first pit in the race! Rush Hour..ADAC team ahead of the RRR legends..Luckly, MidnightMan just scratch his knee here..TopLions car with CoolDriving in it, didn't manage to stay imune to impacts of the walls..This two are not form this planet..
