A couple of days ago, I wrote this
. Basically I'd organised a Forza 2 league for myself and 7 others on the community boards for the British gaming magazine GamesTM.
The first round took place tonight, it consisted of 8 laps around the full version of the Mugello circuit.
A good time was had by all.
Anyway, for the record heres who was driving what:
Dread :- #0 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The Penultimate Ninja :- #5 Audi TT Quattro
Richman :- #6 Lancia Delta
Jay :- #10 Mini Cooper
AC-AA-1806 :- #12 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII GSR
Smurph :- #77 Lancia Delta
Sly Reflex :- #82 Volkswagon Golf R32
Snake :- #99 Subaru Imprezza 22B
Unfortunately Dread (#0 Mitsubishi Eclipse) wasn't able to attend, we weren't aware till the last minute so we'll decide what to do about points for him to keep things interesting.
Everybody was limited to having their own modified car that was not allowed over or under a Class B, Snake had the lowest PI of B699.
Anyway, lots of photos here (14 in all).
And the Championship gets underway:
First corner see's Richman try to take the lead on the outside, but Smurph gets it back, with Snake and Sly following close behind:
AC outbreaks Sly Reflex, but a slight coming together puts Sly's lighter Golf into the gravel, resulting in Sly moving down to 7th and AC upto 4th:
Jay tries to take fourth, but cuts in too close to AC's nose:
Penultimate Ninja runs slightly wide:
Letting Sly Reflex back into fifth, before making another mistake:
A few corners later, AC follows suit and lets Sly Reflex into fourth:
And Ninja makes yet another mistake, moving him down to seventh:
The Delta's of Smurph (first) and Richman (second) set the pace:
While Sly begins to eat away at the gap between himself and Snake:
Snake skims the grass, making the gap ever smaller:
And a few corners later, Sly takes third, by forcing his way through Snakes racing line:
Final Corner and both Smurph and Richman who have had otherwise perfect races make a mistake while trying to psyche each other out:
But Smurph still takes the win, with Richman a close second:
Results as follows:
3. Sly Reflex
7. The Penultimate Ninja read
