Title: NORH - R7/2007 - "EMOTIONS"
Post by: Mark L. Rivers on July 30, 2007, 07:49:47 AM

Sure every NORH race arouses strong emotions in all drivers. So, why this track has been called ?Emotions?, what?s the difference? Well, this race will be special because drivers will have to race with a new, absolutely new car, never used before in a official race: we are talking about SPEEDGATE XSD, the new Stunts car created and developed in SDR laboratories. This car is really able to arouse great emotions for its speed, acceleration, grip and an engine with a torque very similar to a real car, characteristics that are what a NORH driver needs to exalt his passion. Moreover, being the first race with this car, there will be a particular curiosity to find its limit, never explored before. It will be very exciting to drive some known tracts (small and large curves, fast chicane, up/down corkscrew) with an unconventional speed, higher than normal thanks to an higher (but not infinite?) grip. What about the track? Sure very suitable to appreciate the features of the new car: fast (but not straight) tracts where to avail the high grip until the limit (but not over?), an up/down corkscrew where you can finally feel the sensation to lead your car (and not to be lead by it?), a dazzling shortcut where you will fly very high and a not very fast final tract, quite easy if you won?t risk too much. But? will you really able not to risk??  ;)  The doors of the speed and the emotions will open the 1st August 2007: will you pass through them?   :)

The Speedgate works really fine on racetrack, so do yourseleves a favour and give it a try - if possible, on both tracks! :)

1st Checkpoint!

Masterful race for Duplode who realizes a thunderous time, assigning heavy gaps to the other drivers!  :o  The brazilian conquers authoritatively the first provisional place at Cp1 driving as a lightning his Speedgate XSD, a car wherewith he seems to have found yet the right feeling!  ;)   Behind him we find me (2nd) and Chulk (3rd), as usual very near each other but this time with a gap around 2" from the vertex.  ::)  Sure Duplode has not make too much counts, and maybe it could be difficult for him to conquers many other bonus points, but we can be sure that he will push hard again his right pedal next week and it won't be easy for the others stay ahead him, even if there's a general classification that demands a big engagement for Chulk and Mark. Speedgate XSD and current track seem to confirm that this race will arouse very strong "Emotions", isn't it?  ;)

2nd Checkpoint!

Duplode can't contain is passion with his Speedgate XSD establishing a new thunderous limit: 1'22"70!!  :o :o The brazilian driver (can we said now a "NORH specialist"? Sure!!  8)) continues to lead strongly the race at CP2, and lowering his previous time over 3%, he conquers other 2 Bonus Point, reaching a very high  provisional score: 18 points! And now the first win for him appears just behind the corner, fantastic for this great "newbie"! I'm just behind him, me (gap 1"65) and lowering my time over 3% too, I got other 0,5 bonus point. And then Chulk, 3rd, almost 3" his gap from Duplode. But it's not the provisional position or the gap the most important consideration to do about him. It's his improvement percentage to talk more than other: -2,96%. It's new time would be the first without other improvements, but not lowering over 3% his previous time, he wouldn't have bonus point anyway. What can this mean?  ???  Maybe is his motivation decreased? Is he desisting to try to win his 2nd NORH title? Or is it only no time to race? While we'are waiting the 3rd CP to know the time that the new star, Duplode, will be able to reach, these are very interesting questions that must have a reply... Stay with us!  ;)

2nd Checkpoint!

It's his improvement percentage to talk more than other: -2,96%. (...) What can this mean?  ???  Maybe is his motivation decreased? Is he desisting to try to win his 2nd NORH title?

It's not about my motivation having decreased or my will (or the lack of it, really) to win the title again. You know I would race until my fingers bled just to win the championship, Mark!  ;)
Real reasons are the following:
Regarding position or gap, it's just a bad strategy  >:(
Regarding improvement percentage, it's just a miscalculation caused by me not using a calculator (Stupid me it could have cost me important points  :'()

But I won't make the same mistake for CP3, you can be sure about it!

3rd Checkpoint!

If someone could have doubts about Chulk's desire to win this race and the title will have a bad awaking: with the most reply he could give all, the argentinian champion shows all his immense skill ans his passion for NORH specialty reaching an unimaginable time, 1'18"10...  :o :o :o really prodigious, no other words!!! Chulk's race (which gives him a whole bonus point) totally debunks my new time (I'm 2nd with 1'20"95, 0,5 bonus point), almost 2" lower than previous leading time but almost 3" from Chulk.  ::)  But sure who receives a real anticlimax is Duplode. Even if he has reduced his previous time (-0"70) reaching a good 1'22"00, he loses the lead, mantained since the beginning, falling at 4" from the vertex. A shocking CP for the brazilian driver who had showed his big talent in previous races. What can be happened?  ???  Skill crashing? Impossible, it's clear. No time to race? Difficult, his great passion always permits him to race at high level. So? Well, maybe he has only to retrace his race trying to understand where he can find the seconds missing... And we are quite sure that at the finish we will find all three drivers more near than they are now...  ;)  Waiting the outset by Krys TOFF about Gate and Speedgate XSD, we can prepare us for the big final of this wonderful race: stay with us!  :)

Finish!

When you'll see the replay of the winner, you'll know that he maybe comes from another planet. You'll conclude having never seen a NORH race so perfect, so similar to a high quality RH race. Yes, Duplode conquers his first victory in a NORH race with a performance absolutely thunderous, fantastic, incredible!!!  :o :o :o :o :o  The brazilian ace results the fastest in every section giving abyssal gaps to the other known specialist. I'm 2nd at 2"90, Chulk is 3rd (no improvement in last week) at 3"85 and Krys TOFF is 4th at 8"95: what can we say more than this?  :o  But let's consider some data analizying the races. I succeed to limit the damage in section 1 (+ 0"05) and section 3 (+ 0"20) but he can nothing in section 2 (+ 1"75, really awful) and section 4 (+ 0"90). About Chulk, he cedes 0"55, 0"80 and 0"65 in first three section, but then he loses a lot in section 4 (+ 1"75). Difficult race, instead, for Krys TOFF as we had said, having raced only in last week with a absolutely new car. Yes, the car, Speedgate XSD, was new and this introduced more variables than previous race, but this can't absolutely reduce the monstruos performance of Duplode. Adjusting his guide to the new car more than other specialist, he has demonstrated one more time to be really a great NORH driver!  :) :) :)  About the general classification, the result of the race complicates the rescue of Chulk on me. The gap of the argentinian champion (very strange his absence in last week) is now rised at 11 points when only three races divide all to the finish. But, it was unthinkabe until here, there's another rescue that could happen: only 9 points divide now Duplode from Krys TOFF for the final podium. This means tha the french driver will have to race very hard in last three race to contain the new brazlian star. Let's see! The appointement is for the 1st September and we have to use the Jaguar XJR9!   ;)

Jaja, third time lucky I guess  ;D And Speedgate rocks; when one approaches the limit, it handles unlike anything else...

Congratulations to Duplode, Amazing driving man!!! Too bad you didn't join from the begginning or else NORH championship would be much more exciting than it already is!
