Here it is. The moment you’ve been waiting for. These are the results of our 2.4 hour long race at Le Mans in Fourza. A race that was not only streamed on Twitch, but shared to the front page of Jalopnik (thanks for the bump!). If you missed the race, the replays are also in this post.
Here are the replays in case you missed the race. It was long and tiring, but it was also a lot of fun. We lost a few people along the way, but endurance racing is not without its casualties (Verizon needs to get their shit together before they shrek themselves).
Here are the results by class. I’m still missing a few pictures of some of the cars (screw the Fourza servers), so if you have a picture of your car, send it my way. Also, I’m going to give either your gamertag or you kinja name, whichever I remember first. If you want both up there, let me know.
1st: SVTyler, Aston Martin Lola
2nd: RoboRed, Acura ARX-02a
3rd: GoatBird, BMW V12 LMR
4th: SSn 762, Audi R15 TDI
5th: Corey CC97, Honda Lola, DNF (Pastor Maldonado’d off track after blowing a tranny hard in Indianapolis because of amateur tendencies, the VTEC kicking in too hard, and not double clutching like I should. This was due in no small part to Verizon who was blowing an actual tranny at the time because they suck and I hate them.)
6th: TheVancen, Panoz LMP-01, DNF (A moose ran onto the track, spilling nearby barrels of maple syrup. Unable to avoid the moose due to the stickiness of the syrup, the Panoz turned the moose and itself into Canadian Bacon. Afterwards, the Canadian national anthem was played patriotically.)
1st: Parlock3, Audi R8 GT3
2nd: FearlessTSwift, BMW M3 GT2
3rd: Cherry man 1, Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 GT3
4th: JA 37 Viggen, Aston Martin DBR9
5th: Tareim, Subaru Impreza GT300
6th: Mattbob, BMW M3 GT2
7th, ferrariguy357, Ferrari 458 GT2, DNF (Started a mildly successful barbecue business at the entrance of the Ford Chicanes mid race using the charred and still burning remains of the engine as a grill and smoker.)
Since SVTyler was the big superstar winrar, he gets an expertly made, high quality, and extremely illustrious trophy. Congratulations on your success!
Lol jk I wanted you to crash and burn.
And for finishing first in GT, Parlock gets a trophy as well! Congratulations for helping Audi redeem themselves!
Shout out to RoboRed and FearlessTSwift for providing photos and to all of you who sent me replays, even though I couldn’t download most of them (again, screw the Fourza servers).
UPDATE: Finally got a full replay to download, more pictures for you all.
Despite some internet problems along the way, I think this race was a huge success. Even though I didn’t finish, I enjoyed it more than the race at Le Mans last year. The different classes really added to the race and made it more exciting. The Twitch stream was also a big hit. We had like 250 people watching at one point, and they were also making great comments (and occasional death threats). Hopefully this whole event generated more interest for our regular racing series, the next of which will be decided upon soon.
Congrats to everyone who raced, regardless of position. It was a great race, and I’m looking forward to next year’s, which may or may not be in Forza 6. I better start practicing. I’ve been told that I’m an amateur.
