Race 5 - 2020

Developmental Racing Series

In the media this week...

Tom Reynolds has a superb day. "It's great day for Shooting Stars racing, a great day for us ALL, and we;re excited about the race!"

Gunther Heindrickson cuts a more disappointed figure as he gets out of the car. "This track has generally been pretty good to us in the past--you gotta take the good with the bad."

Practise sees permanent upgrades for Ariel Pryde, Fireplug Fitzpatrick and Gunther Heindrickson, with a temporary upgrade for Hana Pryde.

RACE 5 - 2020 - 20 turns

rio corgo 200

vila real, portugal

Remember that each turn is 10 miles, and is represented by the skill being checked and the group of drivers being checked. With regards to groups, 1st - 7th is TOP, 8th - 19th is MIDDLE and 20th and below is BOTTOM.

TURN 1 - SMART - TOP - Klodeus Cig (3) sells a dummy, just fitting through past Gary Gannet and moves to #1. Tom Reynolds fails to get enough of a push to move up. That means no bonus points for Gannet other than the 5 for being on pole!

TURN 2 - RARE - BOTTOM - Sweet Clyde is black flagged due to overly aggressive behaviour, so he's dropped from 37th to last.

TURN 3 - SKILL - TOP - Felix Mattherson Jr fails to move. Tom Reynolds (3) side drafts and passes Klodeus Cig and moves to #1.

TURN 4 - STAR - MIDDLE - Selinia Spiders (18) breezes past Klodeus Cig and moves to #2. Randy Flamethrower isn't quick enough to move up. Cheech Kong (15) overtakes Klodeus Cig and moves to #3. Lars Ungar (12) smoothly passes Cheech Kong and moves to #3. Stanley Tee (12) surges past Lars Ungar and moves to #3.

TURN 5 - TROUBLE - MIDDLE - Baker Mudfield crashes! He gets it all wrong and sideswipes off the track, through the pack from his outside position. Juan Solo loses a wing mirror and begins to smoke. Drew Breezus gets smashed from behind. Felix Mattherson Jr is collected in the wreckage. Hana Pryde is collected in the wreckage. Ivan Bender is violently shunted. Flash Finley appears to have tyre damage. Checkers McGreen is violently shunted. Colin McAdam is nudged to the side and spins. Randy Flamethrower escapes. Xavier Tate crashes. Gunther Heindrickson is violently shunted.

TURN 6 - YELLOW FLAG - There is no movement of cars as the debris is cleared and the track checked. Felix Mattherson Jr. and Flash Finley are both done for the day, but it looks like all the others involved in the crash can keep going.

TURN 7 - PIT TURN - Randy Flamethrower (8) gains a boost from fast pit. Prichard Elias (9) gains a boost from fast pit. Remy Lurue (13) gains a boost from fast pit. Fireplug Fitzpatrick (15) gains a boost from fast pit. Aaliyah Stover (16) gains a boost from fast pit. Daniel Burman (18) gains a boost from fast pit. Klodeus Cig (4) gains a boost from fast pit.
