I also got the first dose of my vaccine on Sunday (Sputnik V). After some mild side effects, I'm okay now.

Here we experience the third wave where around 8000 people are found to be infected and 250 people die per day on average (in a ~10 million country)... Hungary is severely hit in this wave.

It reminds me of zct47 :D One of my best replays :D

Just watch the section time analysis:

OMG that was one of the most awful tracks I've ever seen (ZCT 18, ZCT 32, ZCT 39 and CTK2003b can rival it, though)... I gave it up quite early...

I've just recognised that I can't find all of my former teammates, Opponent Near had Bismarck and Pedro Antonio on the roster - for a while (around early 2003).

As for Looping Warriors, 'Turbojack' wrote his name as 'Turbo Jack'.

Maybe I still have all of their emails (along with Fernando Brito's) in my mailbox.

Well, I find the whole description quite unfriendly. It is really like some legislation text... It is very unusual for a competition in which the whole concept is about trusting in each other. I guess you have completely forgotten The Most Important Rule : Enjoy racing!

Thus, I really miss first of all, what is GAR racing, what does this acronym mean at all, why is it good to race this way, why it is enjoyable, how and why do we trust in each other (=no replay handling, no pause at all without video recording of the drive). A call for r@cers to drive GAR style.

I would also add a section with the history of GAR, starting from Pershing II's ISA (he just wasn't good at finding shortcuts and started his own competition with his rules), then Mingva's and Alain's IRC. Maybe Juank23's insistence on no-RH driving, Alain's multi-lap live competitions could also be mentioned.

Maybe briefly highlighting the most debatable rules in a table should also be shown, in comparison with ISA and IRC rules (rows: e.g. cutting a corkscrew, jumping over tunnel roofs, pushing the pause button, jumping over slalom blocks etc., columns: ISA, IRC, GAR).

When was the last time you met another Stunts pipsqueak (except family members/close friends)?

As far as I remember:

September 2015 - kahdra, Akoss Poo
July 2009 - Zak McKracken
August 2008 - Bonzai Joe, Usrin, maybe Zak's family members (Andi? Umberto Ácsó?)
August 2006 - Lise, Dinmor, JTK, maybe other members of Zak's family (?)
August 2004 - KHR

July 2017 - Usrin (+his wife and son, who also played Stunts on that occasion)
September 2015 - CTG, Böbszlee
August 2008 - Bonzai Joe
June 2007 - Szabee
August 2006 - Lise, Dinmor, JTK
July 2005 - Krys Toff, Diesel Joe, Aignur
August 2004 - KHR
Don't know exactly (2003 HSM, 2004 WSM, 2005 WSM, 2006 WSM): Zak's and BJ's friends, relatives etc. who have ever driven a competitive Stunts track.
+old friends and dormitory inhabitants against who I ever played Stunts earlier, though they never had become competitive Stunts drivers

(...of course I saw kahdra 2 minutes ago and Lupuszka yesterday, but they don't count now.)

1 Alan Rotoi - his track, his car, his style
2 Duplode - just sneaking silver from CTG
3 CTG - despite huge effort; but getting leading time point(s)
then group of 2010-2020 elite drivers who are destined to drive this track, e.g. Finrok, Seeker, Friker, Marco or something like this... let's assume 3 drivers from this cathegory, 4th-6th

Ha, ha, ha XD  Mutants!

It does sound funny, I suppose something is lost in translation here.

What's the hungarian term? Do you have different words for mutation (a small change) and mutant (usually in science fiction, some creature deformed by radiation / pollution / horrible things in the dark)?

Ah, I see. While the mutation is called mutation in English, the mutation of coronavirus is rather called variant (or they just talk about a different/new strain), mutant is used less frequently. While in Hungarian, we rather use the term mutant virus if it suffers a mutation (like corona).

Definitely, we do have lots of infected people in South America, but you Europeans are really having problems with these new strains. It looks like the inactivity or very low activity of airlines mainly is preventing those strains from reaching here but it will have to happen at some point.

We have variant strains there which came outside from Europe... the South African mutant.

There is a highly contagious South African mutant as well, the Brazilian one (not identified in Hungary so far).

But you can't tell to European people to follow rules like last year in Wuhan...

(And there is a rumour about a possible Czecho-Slovak mutant as well... maybe it is like the British one, maybe not...)

We have been in lockdown with curfew since January. Although numbers are good authorities say that there a third wave building. A new mutation is growing rapidly while older variants are lowering in numbers. Public unrest is growing (stupid people who use freedom of speech to spread fake news that other stupid people want to be true. Which is not helping) politics are close to elections. It's becoming quite a mess....

Here we had a lighter lockdown and a partial (between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.) curfew since 11th November, but as the numbers started to rise steeply, the government decided to introduce a stricter lockdown now, including the closure of all schools and kindergartens + non-essential shops. The reason is mainly the British mutant, which was imported mainly from Slovakia. I think this stricter lockdown would have had to be introduced 2 weeks earlier to save lives, but at that time the government rather talked about a gradual opening...

Hungary: third wave hits the country, new lockdown (+worry and fear) for at least 2 weeks.

Btw in my region the number of new infections are not that high.

It is promised that before 11th April the people who are already registered for the vaccine can get its first dose.

Sorry about the loop jump, I don't know if it was there in the original. To follow the "make a small change" tradition, I swapped the loop and the slalom tiles, thinking it would have no effect. Turns out it makes the loop-to-bridge jump a thing :o

Well, I didn't know/remember this make a small change tradition. I wondered when I saw CTG's replay and then drove the lap myself how could this loop jump happen, because it wasn't planned... but now I understand, yes, the loop and the slalom tiles were in different position. It is definitely not a 'small' change. However, it doesn't really bother me, a neat trick is available with this.

Looping Warriors will dominate 2021. BÖFF!!! ;D
Is that a challenge??

Nope, a fact. (At least in böffing and in beer consumption.)

How many times did you fail the loop to bridge jump?

Well, it is a./ not that difficult b./ not that worthy. Of course it is worthy, but the grass shortcut from the loop yields almost as good sector time as the jump into the elevated road.

It happened in the past that a./ I designed a difficult/annoying track 'cos I planned not to race on it b./ designed a track which was planned to be a good one, but turned out to be an annoying one... but this time, I enjoy racing on my track - not an ordinary fact.

My replay... erm, I've done all the tricks, sent a more-or-less decent replay... now I wonder if I am keen on working on a perfect replay with efficient advanced replay handling or not...
