Here are the results, replays, and photos from the ninth round of The Oppositelock Forza 7 Endurance Championship at Monza. In addition, the current points standings are in this post, as well as a few important notes for the next round in October.
If you missed the race, check out the streaming list. All of the replays can be found there. Special thanks to everyone who streamed. Only one caution led to some long term strategy battles, though spoiled a bit by the lone caution. A very clean race for the most part.
Here are the results by class, as well as a picture of the car used by each driver. Here is the full results sheet.

Here are some more photos from the race. If you have any pictures from the race that you want to share, post them in the comments.
This was one of the cleanest races of the season so far, for the most part. One hour and fifteen minutes of green flag racing. The field was getting a little spread out, but each pack seemed to be having their own little battles. As per the norm with this series, the only things that got in the way were Forza/Xbox related issues. The only caution was caused by some kind of controller issue, and of course the servers couldn’t keep everyone around for the full time. But it was still a good race with a lot of action. At least until we got to the post race. Sorry about the incorrect lobby settings, my 3 years of race directing failed me when I was setting up the lobby. Also apologies for the BoP issues in the week leading up to the race, but a big thank you to everyone who helped me resolve them.
Also some of y’all made post race summaries, which I’m posting below.

Next up on the calendar is the second to last endurance race, and potentially the last time this series visits the North American continent, at the famed Road Atlanta circuit. Been awhile since we’ve run here and I’m eager to go back. Still no weather options though. The voting thread for the date will be up very soon. Time options will be very limited this time. RMPC has started up and has a rigid schedule we need to work around. Plus my current wheel issues are affecting how quickly I can turn this around for the next round. Plus since this is a 2 hour race we can’t run back to back with another series. So I’m looking at mostly Saturday and Sunday options at 4:30 EDT and one Saturday night 8:00 PM slot. Either way, BoP will be done a week before the next round at the latest. Even if I have to make a new belt for my wheel out of duct tape and sadness.
Only three rounds left! We’re getting into the closing stages of the championship, so I’m expecting to see some of the points battles really flare up and generate some great action. See you at the next race!
