Well that's my Agari time submitted, quite happy with it to be honest, I don't think I can wring anymore time out of it with my meagre ability.

Team AcuraF1 has set-up problems. Fire your head Spanner Monkey!;).

I'm hoping I'm going to be pretty quick here, I like Agari (though I know some people hate it), the secret is getting through the traffic, which with such a short lap, you encounter alot of in a very enclosed space.

The next round is Bytes, and I suck badly there, so I'd best try and get some points on the board while I can :D.

You can do it from the grid selection menu, the one you add the drivers to before a race, you just click on the car name and a drop down list appears, then you select "Formula".

Surely you did it for the last race? Or am I just not getting your question? (More than likely that).

Well, I hate to say it, but having just reviewed your time, you did run in the General car, not the Formula.

Which is probably why you were way off pace.

Still, sorry but rules is rules, so . . . :(

BEHOLD the magic of Rule 14!;).

Fear not though Jodum, the season is yet young, plenty of time for you to make up points!

In other news, the Deadline is now a little over 24 hours away. Make sure all you're entries are in chaps!

1. Makarias 18pts

4. BorderReiver 6pts
5. Ferrari 312 3pts
6. Jodum5 2pts
7. Costaz 1pts

Congratulations to Makarias on his second straight win, though a far less dominant one than last week at Wigeno, could the field be catching him up? 2nd to 4th were identical to last week too, but Jodum5 gets legitimate points on the board after last race's disqualification, so well done there. Of interest is Ferrari 312's fastest lap, which was quicker than that of Jodum5's above him in 5th place, proof perhaps that consistancy is the key in this championship? Only 2 hundreths of a second separated those two at the end of the race.

And so the series moves on . . .

Looks like there's a pretty set order of drivers, but it also looks like I need to worry more about holding off AcuraF1 and BorderReiver rather than having many hopes of attacking Makarias..

I find it relatively easy to get a good laptime in Bytes, but it's freaking impossible to get 20 good consecutive laptimes. There's no place to relax, you need to be 100% concentrated all the time to juuust dodge the walls. With the AI's it's a bit of a lottery, it's nearly impossible to pass them in certain places, and if the AI cars happen to be bunched up together, it's even worse.

Yeh, if you catch the AI into the first chicane, you're stuffed really, it compromises you all the way round the top end of the circuit and then you're looking at an 11 second lap which royally screws your average.

Ho hum, roll on a nice open circuit.

2nd. paranoik0, 122.41kph, 3m19.39s, 9.53s

6th. Costaz, 107.30kph, 3m47.47s, 10.51s

Fastest Lap - 9.53 seconds. Makarias & paranoik0 (New Lap Record)

ATLAS F1 CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS - After Round 3 of 9

1. Makarias 27pts
2. paranoik0 18pts
3. AcuraF1 12pts
4. BorderReiver 9pts
5. Jodum5 4pts
6. Ferrari 312 3pts
7. Costaz 2pts

And so Makarias makes it three on the bounce, congratulations to him, though this time is was, if anything, closer than ever with paranoik0 drawing exactly level interms of fastest lap time. A little more consistancy and perhaps we'll see a different driver on the top step in Mondega?

Race submitted. If ever you needed to complain about a horror track, this is it. You're likely to screw up on your own as much as when hitting traffic on other tracks. I finally managed to get a clean race in after many tries, although the FL wasn't all that impressive.

Congrats Mak. Damn, I thought I would be closer. My best lap was a 9.83, but obviously that was a rarity seeing as how I ended up 7mph a lap slower than you.
I think I better get used to 3rd place.

Apologies for the lateness of this result, it was due to me being unable to access the internet over the weekend.

ATLAS F1 CHAMPIONSHIP - ROUND 4 - THE MONDEGA GRAND PRIX - RESULTS

Pos. Name. Avg Speed. Rce Tme. FLap.
1st. paranoik0, 117.58kph, 4m24,53s, 12.57s
2nd. Makarias, 116.67kph, 4m26.59s, 12.95
3rd. AcuraF1, 112.21kph, 4m37.20s, 13.29s
4th. BorderReiver, 109.37kph, 4m44.39s, 13.40s
5th. Jodum5, 108.92kph, 4m45.56s, 13.67s
6th. fafnir622, 103.76kph, 4m59.77s, 13.99s
7th. Nikos Spagnol, 100.18kph, 5m10.47s, 14.06s

Fastest Lap - 12.57 seconds. paranoik0 (New Lap Record)

ATLAS F1 CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS - After Round 4 of 9

1. Makarias 33pts
2. paranoik0 27pts
3. AcuraF1 16pts
4. BorderReiver 12pts
5. Jodum5 6pts
6. Ferrari 312 3pts
7. Costaz 2pts
8. fafnir622 1pt

And so Makarias' stranglehold on the series is broken as paranoik0 takes his first FAWC win at Mondega and in so doing closes the gap at the top of the championship to 6 points. It seems the title really is up for grabs! Nikos Spagnol and fafnir622 both make their debuts with the latter taking a point on his first run!

And so the series moves on . . .
