Despite being hampered by balance-of-performance adjustments and driving the slowest, least-powerful car in the series, RoboRed prevailed as the winner in Trans-Am. Not much else to say but congratulations man, you definitely earned it:

We have one more trophy to award. Inspired by one particular FP author, we decided to tally up the number of times drivers rolled their vehicles during the course of the race. The winner by an overwhelming margin was Tohru, who Orloved so many times I just stopped counting about midway through the season. So unto you I bestow the Raphael Orlove Memorial Trophy:

Overall I’d say both these series were extremely successful. We set out to create a competitive, unpredictable, exciting pair of racing series where anyone and everyone can join and immediately compete for the win, and I think we might’ve just done it: over twenty-four total races in both series we had twenty-one different winners, and many times finishing positions were decided by a second or less over a forty-five minute race.

I’d also like to do what I did last season and thank each and everyone of you who participated in these races. Even if it was just for a round or two, having a diverse, interesting group of people to hang out with and race on lazy Saturday afternoons made these races some of the most fun and challenging online gaming experiences I’ve ever had. Thanks again and see you next series.
