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

Ok hear is my report for ZCT226!

Reporting on ZCT226

We have just witnessed the end of an epic battle between the F40 and the P962 or Seeker vs. Duplode!

The big question loomed - would Seeker make a second major victory? Or would Duplode prevail as he has done time and time again this season? Ultimately it was Duplode's very skilled lap in the F40 that stole the show on the last day, including a perfectly executed loop trick!

As usual, our other highly skilled Pipsqueaks Overdrijf, CTG and Dreadnaught followed up the top 5. It appears Rolling Stunts has returned as the winning team this time around, tightening the gap between Season leaders Cork's Crew.

Also witnessed a great display of GAR laps, with the Trueno a clear favourite (congrats Seeker!) and the welcome return of Marco.

It pleased me to see such enthusiasm and skill used on my very own track designed around my home country! Now we move on to the Jungle. Gentlemen, start your engines!

Good! Except that... we did not win the team competition, although here it seems so (maybe it won't get updated after quiet replays publishing and scoreboard confirmation?). The seasonal table reports how Cork's Crew won all the first five races.

Fixed! Both the podiums, and the article ;)
