Current track ZCT196 - It's in the details

Latest news from the ZakStunts crew:
Cas built that
During the first half of the race, the Jaguar was leading the pack with a convincing advantage. But what could have been two weeks of small improvements suddenly changed to a Lotus race, only minutes after the public replay deadline. FinRok jumped to the lead, and stayed there for the rest of the race, doubling his LTB hours.
So, two weeks left, is this a Lotus race now? Sort of! The Jaguar is still doing well, but in the shadows people were experimenting with the Acura. And the final podium sees indeed two quiet Acura replays, followed by Duplode's last-minute improvement and switch from Jaguar to Lotus.
The tenth champion?
If FinRok were to look in the side-mirrors of his overall score, Duplode would look quite small, more than twenty points behind. Is this the final podium? Can anything happen, or should we be ready to crown the 10th champion in ZakStunts history?
On to the next track
The end of October brings autumn for the european racers, spring from South America, and a new track for ZakStunts. ZCT196 is short and quite simple, should be nice for GAR and fast cars. But the LM002 has a ridiculous 50% bonus this time, and some of the mid-range cars might travel the alternative route fast enough. Which way then? Which car?
Strap in safe, and show us your best time!
In other news
One two... testing? Dreadnaut here, writing in the space that has always been Zak's own. What is happening? Read on for the details!
It turns out Zak is quite busy building a new house out of Lego and beer crates, if I understand correctly, so we'll be helping him with running the competition. There's an ongoing discussion on the forum about possible tasks to pick up (writers, track designers, etc.) so have a look!
The season so far
October has arrived and there are only three track left until the end of the 2017 season. It's a year of new names and strong results, both on the main scoreboard and the GAR races.
Imperas and Artur have been very consistent and their replays are moving up on the scoreboards. Seeker1982 has joined mid-year and seems to enjoy the GAR races the most, duelling with Marco about 5 seconds faster than all the others.
Leading the pack is FinRok, who might not win every race, but has collected tons of LTB points feels like 2013 again! Duplode is close by, but it seems that real life might be claiming more of his time in the next months. Can that suspiscious dreadnaut gain another position? Is the season podium decided? Does anyone want to do the math?
Race 4 Kicks
Don't forget that Cas' own competition is running in parallel. Fixed cars and OWOOT rules make for a distinct challenge, so try a lap there when you are frustrated with that difficult loop cut or powergear corner!
