Results, awards, and a photo-dump :)
The winner of the hour-long 9pm race was BKRM3, who double-stinted his #80 911 in the 10pm race as well. Unfortunately only about half the people who signed up for the first race actually participated so turnout was bit low :( On the bright side, that meant everyone who finished got on the podium, so there's that... Maybe when we do this next year we'll have more people or better planning. I think the latter was the one that was lacking...
A momentous win deserves an equally magnificent prize, so behold, the Microsoft Paint-sponsored Fourza Le Mans trophy!
Now, to the results of the 10pm, 24-lap race...
In first place, driving the #66 911 GT3... Newsboy!
Newsboy also set the fastest lap with a 3:56 flat, a full two-and-a-half seconds faster than the next quickest time. The other podium steps were filled by myself in the #11 Viper in second and Corey CC97 finishing third with his NFS-liveried M3 GTR.
Top five was rounded out by The Vancen and ly2v8. Here's the rest of the final standings, courtesy of Newsboy (edit: Takuro Spirit actually finished ahead of ATypicalNut00 by race's end, K-Roll isn't shown, and Taylor Hedgie and CamaroBoy both DNF'd, the latter due to losing power):
As promised, here's a few photos I took of the race.
Dunlop chicanes going about as well as expected.
Two of the coolest liveries in the race.
Finally, I'd like to take the time to thank everyone who signed up for the races. I was kind of worried no one would want to do this or that it would end up being lame and boring but thanks to you guys it turned into the most memorable online video game experience I've ever had. I obviously can't speak for everyone but it seems like all those who participated had fun and enjoyed themselves, which made all the work and planning was totally worth it. Only on a place like Oppo could this have worked. You guys freaking rule, man :)
