    Lap 1
    Farly simple, passed everyone.

    Lap 2
    T350C was giving me a little bit of trouble.

    Lap 3
    Best Lap Time: 1'58.316.

    Lap 5
    Best Lap Time: 1'57.504. Comfortably in first place by 8 seconds.

    Lap 9
    Best Lap Time: 1'56.558.

    Lap 10
    Best Lap Time: 1'56.067. Total Time: 19'54. T350C: -15.719.


    Lap 11
    Benz and the Speed Six are in the pit.

    Lap 12
    My first pit. Right as I leave the T350C enters. The Vantage goes in as well.

    Lap 13
    Everyone's now scattered all over the track, with the Corvette 15 seconds behind me now.

    Lap 15
    Best Lap Time: 1'55.149.

    Lap 17
    Best Lap Time: 1'55.108. I can see the Vantage that I'm soon to be lapping. Corvette has entered its first pit. Lapped the Vantage on the last turn.


    Lap 21
    Total Time: 39'46. T350C: -54.232. This is going to be a really boring race... Lapped the Benz.

    Lap 23
    Speed Six and the Benz have gone to the pit.

    Lap 24
    To the pit I go. The T350C and the Vantage.

    Lap 30
    Total Time: 58'14. Corvette: -1'21.031. Everyone except one guy (I suspect the Benz) are all clumped up together.


    Lap 33
    Corvette's second pit, lapped him as well.

    Lap 35
    Speed Six, and I are in the pits once more.

    Lap 39
    Lapped the Speed Six.

    Lap 40
    Lapped the T350C.

    Lap 48
    Another pit.

    Ever thought of writing a story a la (dunno why I used that word) Red-Zone or The Biography of Charlie Williams?

    Who knows the story OoY might make could be better than both of those stories.:sly:

    *cough* The Biography of Charlie Williams can't be overtaken... That story is epic. Nonetheless, this is a great race report! :tup:

    Most Boring Race? I can tell you that, judging the car you used, it must have been. Try the race with a slower, older car. You will find it will be much more exciting. :tup:

    Yes I have actually. The past few days I've been thinking of writing a story. Every once in a while I'll start to write a story. At the beginning of this year I randomly began to write a story about... nothing really. I wrote it as I was going along. That only lasted about 1 or 2 weeks, but I got 5 pages out of it. I just don't know where to begin or how I would write one while getting pictures that go along with the story.

    I thought so too, but according to the game the race should have been evenly matched, hence the 200 points.

    Actually, 60 A-spec points is an exact match in terms of car capability. ;)
