For the first time, we had very few internet problems! Combined with the fact that we had no cautions in 2 hours of racing, this race went very well. With no cautions, we ended up with a true endurance race. Pit strategies and attrition made or broke people’s finishing position. There wasn’t as much close racing as the previous rounds, but that’s not exactly a bad thing. Field was a bit lighter compared to the previous rounds, but it seemed like March was a bad month scheduling wise for everyone. Keep in mind, if you missed a round there is a drop round for the championship. Also, as a side note, I’ve discovered a glitch in Forza where only the lobby host can save the replay and have disconnected cars in it.
And now we dive into the world of fantasy and go to an old favorite: Maple Valley! The last time Oppo raced there was 2015 for Robo’s Vintage Roadsters series. We’ve never done multi-class there, so things could get interesting. Especially at the top of the hill. We’ll have the possibility of a rain race again too, so look for that in the voting. The voting thread for the date will be up Monday or Tuesday. Thankfully, April has many more scheduling opportunities than March, so hopefully there is a time for everyone. BoP may or may not be changed very much. At this point I’m just expecting that most cars will get changed since that’s what happened each time so far. Hopefully not though. Either way, BoP will be done a week before the next round at the latest.
Without Forza issues to hold us back, we had a proper endurance race. Here’s hoping that carries into the next round!
