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.
Chürműű! :-)

I guess at least 5 pipsqueaks will be under 1 minute.

Whatever happens, this might be one of the strongest races of the last 10 years.

Winning replay: landing in the cork up/down OR driving on the left edge of the bridge and cork up/down. The latter one almost worked. Almost. Falling on the grass OR crashing. I should drink less in the last hours.

I did try that, but never actually got close to landing it successfully.

Looking for the back, it was quiet an exciting one! I was really curious to see what would hide in the quiet replays, and I wasn't expecting Alan!

I was pretty sure that Marco will send 56.xx.

Yeah, summer vacations :D Anyway there were harder races in the last years. I didn't use a checkpoint system (that's the way I used to race). We are too lazy or too old  for hard races hahaha. I did my best but Dups appeared  ;D. I'll watch his replay as soon as you publish it.

Also there was a nice track design, very enjoyable. It was fun.

If anyone wants to write the race summary, let me know ;D

Let's see where my strength estimator places it! (You'll note the values are a bit different than the ones in its thread, as I have been tweaking the parameters a bit.)

23rd overall, and 13th since 2010. I tend to agree on this race having been even stronger than Z229. I believe the model rates Z229 slightly higher largely because of FinRok taking part.

The Cartography top 6 video for Z234 is ready! You can find it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyylOzK_Vm8 . After watching it all, one thing I'd certainly highlight is the strong performance of Alan, even beyond pulling off the best line at the next-to-last sector before the u/d cork.

Thank you! Maybe I'm not as rusty as I thought but still far from what I was.

Stunts racing is like cycling. You can't forget how to do it properly. If you have a sense to find tricks & shortcuts, it will work whatever the year is. Everything else depends on the time and energy spent on RH.

(Alan Rotoi is one of the greatest Stunts pipsqueaks in history. Even if I don't like his terrible jokes. ;D)

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.

Here we have a second wave, building up from January after some respite between October and December. My state is stepping back to the "red stage" (strictest restrictions) from Saturday, also for at least two weeks. It's a mess...
