    Le Mans, Le Fight

    What a race what a race! The best race I'm seen so far. Starting from the back, working up to 3 and 4th.

    Very sad to see the race end like this. But we must say we're happy with the decision made by the STC Managment. Stopping the race and having the race result from lap 7 before the server crash.

    Hereby congrats to Flat Out for there 1 and 2. One more race to go.

    Big respect for the "Charly Whitings" of STC. Tough decision to make under a lot of pressure is never easy!

    The race and broadcast were awesome! Good technical racing with a very good field of drivers!

    ok guys, this is the result we come up with just before the first player was kicked from the server. We awarded half points but cannot award 0.5s in our table so results have to be rounded (up), which means that starting with pos.5 and 6 two players always get the same points. Cannot be helped. Also, the single points for pole and fastest lap stay whole points. Here goes:

    01 Mikko 16 +1 FL
    02 Risto 15
    03 Rami 13
    04 Hannu 12
    05 Göran 11
    06 Robin 11 +1 PP
    07 Harald 10
    08 Antonio 10
    09 Jakob 09
    10 Reggie 09
    11 Mikael 08
    12 Bruno 08
    13 Krister 07
    14 Mario 07
    15 Rocco 06
    16 John 06
    17 Joao 05
    18 Theo 05
    19 Erik 04

    I personally would have loved to have a second 45 min race with guys starting in this order, it would have been an epic battle on the long straights between RPM and Flatout, but it was not to be. I suppose the decision we reached may not have been the most telegenic but the least controversial.

    There are many explanations for this decision, but I will keep it for myself.

    A shame this has happened again, thanks to the STC gurus for making a swift and fair (in my opinion) decision, that was not easy. I think perhaps we need some more rules again, maybe this can be discussed in the WAR forum?

    First of all Grats to Mikko and Risto for a great effort and a great result.

    Mikko toughed it out and managed to have incredible pace even though he started with a fever this morning and looked like he wasn't going to race. Glad to you did bud, well done.

    Risto grats on your first podium, well deserved. I know you put alot of effort in for this one. The old PC still playing up losing the HUD, having no mirrors, lots of lag and tiny frame rate...heaven help us when you get a proper race rig sorted out.

    Big gratz to RPM, Rami and Hannu even on the damp track you managed to set the place on fire...awesome drive from dead last to 3rd and 4th. Really well done.

    Well done to everyone that raced, tough to drive LeMans in the wet you all did great.

    Only 2 points in it...good luck chaps its going to be intense.
