Ah!  It's my turn on this one!  I hope I can manage to do it well. I can write comfortably, but I'm not a good race analyser, ha, ha. I'll try my best and post it here too to see what you guys think :)  That, once we got the final results for this race. I will also have to watch some replays carefully.

Hey... not sure how good or bad is my article, but this is my first attempt. What do you think?

Another scoreboard has been filled and we're now in May!  It starts to get cold in the Southern hemisphere and a European triumvirate takes the whole podium!  Very close and very tight, Seeker1982 managed to achieve the first place with Overdrijf and CTG following, all three within 7/100 of a second, final time.

With six different cars in the scoreboard and two more having been used on this race as well, PSX Madness has proven extremely competitive and full of possibilities. In spite of the Mercedes being the favourite for most pipsqueaks and for the greatest part of the challenge, the LM002 ended up being the winner, taking three of the first five pipsqueaks to the top. It's a lesson to pipsqueaks like me: learn to use slow cars!

The rest of the top 10 continues with Stingray86, with an impressive lap for the F40, followed by Heretic and Duplode and then four Mercedes driven by Cas, Afullo, sd4000 and Shoegazing Leo. The GAR section had very good participation too this month, the podium being dominated again by Seeker1982, but this time followed by two great pipsqueaks from the South: Stingray86 and Duplode.

It's great to see so much action on the 8bit-colour-depth pavement. I'm sure we're all looking forward to more races like this, so let's see what comes next!

It's a great article, but uhmm... maybe a little early. As Afullo said in the shoutbox (3 whole minutes before I posted this), the hidden time have not been published yet.  :o ;D

Haha, sorry for taking a whole day to remember about the quiet replays! :)  Luckily the corrections should be minimal. Just send me the article by PM when you're happy!

Oh, my!  I looked at the publishing times and saw there were two replays in the quiet days so I thought "Alright, they've been published". Now I realise those two replays were GAR ones!  Anyway, I'll have to write everything from scratch. It doesn't make sense to just retouch it.

Alright... I'll try again. Sorry that I've been off a few days. Busy times and this article task, I've found out, is super difficult to me. Actually, not writing the article, but analysing the race XD  And I had to do it twice!  I'll send a PM to Dreadnaut with the new article
