    That is the most epic bump I've ever seen.



    Also, it's been a while, what should I report on now?

    I'm thinking V8 Challenge win at Monaco or TOCA win at Laguna in the old Integra.:)

    Go for the win with the old Integra. I'm wondering if it's going to show up for TOCA Season 4...

    Here's an idea, V8's at Tsukuba at Season 3! That was pretty cool stuff despite the occasional contact between drivers.

    Dont think so mate. You might be able to get in as a reserve though.

    No, it's just you never have entertaining races, if I get the Elise replay, I could do that for my 4th report, I'm also extremely lazy so the 3rd one is very slowly getting here.

    What about me? There are many others out there who have won races that have been of very high quality.

    Well the next one is my first online win, but what race to you want covered? I don't have the feature race from Tsukuba in the V8's saved.

    Maiden Win
    Took place 9/July/2011

    [​IMG]
    First off, sorry for the quality of the pictures, standards look ugly, anyway, TOCA Season 2, Laguna Seca, Race 2, had an average race 1 and that blue Integra in the backround is me starting in 7th, pole is pj-gm ahead of tombrooks.

    [​IMG]
    Very spaced out grid at Laguna means that there was next to no movement at the start and the 4WD Atenza's only had a slim chance of getting a place against the FR BMW's and FF Honda's.

    [​IMG]
    Turn 3, tombrooks leading from pj.

    [​IMG]
    Carbonox into the gravel

    [​IMG]
    johnboy-1975--akmuq-Carbonox

    [​IMG]
    Battle for 2nd and 4th, furinkazen-pj-gm and johnboy-akmuq

    [​IMG]
    Behind me, Carbonox overtakes johnboy for 5th.

    [​IMG]
    As the field negotiates the corkscrew, vtecsyndrome cutting it.:boggled:

    [​IMG]
    tombrooks, who had made quite a lead through the lap, makes a mistake.

    [​IMG]
    I got past Furinkazen and pj-gm, and with Carbonox already behind, they go 3-wide behind me.

    [​IMG]
    Pj went off, and Carbonox gets the traction out of the final turn and goes ahead.

    [​IMG]
    But I out-braked him into turn 2.

    [​IMG]
    And he gets the drive out of the turn to take the position back.

    [​IMG]
    But I finish the move.

    [​IMG]
    In second and I've the drive on tombrooks up to turn 6.

    [​IMG]
    And slip through as the field bunches on tom through the final turn allowing me to get away.

    [​IMG]
    PJ and tom fighting for second, furinkazen and johnboy fighting for 4th, I left them. I love this picture because it looks like it's organized at about 30 MPH, but they're at racing speed on the way up to the Corkscrew.

    [​IMG]
    And they're battling really allowed me to get away, 2.6 seconds by the end of the lap.

    [​IMG]
    Tom goes off.

    [​IMG]
    And Johnboy finally establishes himself in second place.

    [​IMG]
    Skip a lap and my 6 second plus lead shrinks as I go into the gravel at the final turn.

    [​IMG]
    And that's the new state of my lead with Jamie-C in 3rd behind Johnboy in the backround, just so you know Jamie-C is really fast.

    [​IMG]
    And he's got past Johnboy

    [​IMG]
    And quickly hunting down me.

    [​IMG]
    Jamie and Johnboy going 2-abreast into turn 10

    [​IMG]
    Another lap skipped and an error has cost Jamie, I'm going into turn 11, johnboy is coming out of turn 10, and Jamie is going into turn 10.

    [​IMG]
    Vtecsyndrome all over the back of Jamie.

    [​IMG]
    But Jamie catches up to johnboy again.

    [​IMG]
    And they come out of the Corkscrew 2-wide.

    [​IMG]
    Johnboy comes out on top in this battle.

    [​IMG]
    Desperate to overtake johnboy, Jamie goes off into the gravel, race over.

    [​IMG]
    Or is it?:mischievous:

    [​IMG]
    Yes, it was the last lap and this was the gap at the end, my first win, by 2.5 seconds!:D

    That tom-pj and jb-furi battle was brilliant going 2-abreast up to the Corkscrew, cars are ugly though. Should make premium touring cars...
