22-th FL Race Review at Morroco
Ola RRR drivers&readers..
Last night we drove 22-th race at Morroco on very nice and smooth track! Too bad there was only 13 drivers (12 actually, because Jahombre decide to watch a race surrounded with beers and cigaretes
Too bad that Quickess and Tina went off just before start, and that BlackEye had a connection problems.. As I can see, he always get „Invalid race time..“ problem, so he must get his network fix immediately! Also missing good drivers such Reh, Kosmic, Monty and Slaven for a even better podium fight too! But, 12 drivers had a very nice and interesting race..
Let's start from beginning..
First quali went ok, letting Massa wins first place with time below 44 seconds.. Me, RioRalle, Icke, Wessy were only few hundreds of seconds away from each other, so fight for a starting grid should be interesting..
As it always be, Massa get Pole, Tmdriver was second, RioRalle third.. Icke, me, NH90 and Wessy after that..
There were only 0.09 seconds betwen 2 and 5-th place!!
After intro lap, and when lights go off, we go into the pits.. Only RioRalle decide for 10min tactics, everyone else went for a 20/30 minutes strategy..
Of course he got lead, behind Icke and NH90 hwo were at 20min fuel strategy.. Me, Massa, TmDriver and Wessy started to get them cause we were at 30min fuel strategy..
After 10 minutes, RioRalle went into the Pit, and by that time Massa almost past Icke.. I was fighting with Tmdriver, and Wessy wasn't able to get a nice race pace on this track, so he was starting to fall behind with us..
Unfortunately BVB decide to go off, after few bumps iun a row, so he lost his patience and join Jahombre
As it race going to the end, there was one thing that we already know.. Massa will be (again, who can tell that
) first, but second place was still open! And that was a hellowa fight.. Me and TmDriver were figthing all race long, and on the last ten lap RioRalle join us for a epic ending..
Icke, Winner and Wessy were almost 30 seconds behind us, so we will be decidng hwo will be on podium too.. On lap 59/62 TmDriver made a huge mistake lifting off the curves and almost ending up on roof, so I manage to pass him and make few seconds advantage.. Also RioRalle now manage to get very near Tmdriver, so last laps they are driving „in each other“..
I manage to drove good and fast 2 last laps, and ending with silver, and RioRalle with just of 0.51 seconds of advantage, gets bronze medal!
Icke and Winner get 5 and 6 place, and NH90 7-th place.. Wessy went dark last two laps, so I don't know what happened to him.. Connection?Went off track?..
Morpheus was 8-th, but interesting duel at the end was between Hiita and Andi! Hiita had few seconds advantage over Andi, but he made a big mistake hittng the wall at turn no.3. letting Andi to pass him.. Then Hiita try to speed up, and catch Andi.. If there was only few hundred meters more track at the end of the race, maybe he would succeed, but on this track Andi wins with only 0.72 seconds ahead of him..
I the end it was a nice race, with very tensely end! As I said at the beginning, too bad that there weren't few drivers more at the track, but drivers hwo showed up, had a nice fun..
In the next post you can see a few ScreenShoots form a race..
Cya on the next TM FL race!
