Reporting on ZCT251
You're in your Melange, the ultimate Argentinean road racer. Up ahead, you can see the finish line. Just when you think you've got this in the bag, not one, not two, but three GTOs come flying past you. You're furious! Those damn Italians have spilled pasta sauce all over your white pants of victory! You suspect foul play, so you pull into the pits to investigate. As you get out of your car, instead of cheering, all you can hear is a murmur from the crowd. You look up at the scoreboard, but it's just filled with gibberish. It's then that you realise that maybe the prophecy was true, that in the Stunts world, life really does end at 640KB.
This race started out predictably with an 11% bonus for the Melange. Everyone posted quite respectable times with it, everyone but Stan 286XT. His first replay was in the Ferrari GTO, which was a sign of things to come. It wasn't until the quiet replays were revealed that we realised team Doubleplusspeed knew something that the rest of us didn't, that there was a viable power gear line for this track. Not even veteran racer Duplode knew, or maybe he just had a busy month. Either way, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
In the end, it was dreadnaut who brought home the gold with his impressive sub-one-minute time. Alan Rotoi came in second, but it was Frieshansen who placed third who was the real star of the show. The drama started to unfold when it became apparent that his replay could only be played back using the TV view. Race officials declared his replay valid though, which secured his first podium finish! Well done! This means that team Doubleplusspeed achieved a 1-2-3 finish in this race. Congratulations!
Moving on to the amateur league, Frieshansen unsurprisingly placed first, followed by Cas and Heretic. Well done guys! The question is though, how long will Frieshansen continue to compete in the amateur league? Only time will tell. There are only a few days left until the end of ZCT252, so until then, fasten your seatbelts!
Midsummer / Midwinter 2022
Welcome everyone to the mid-season summary for 2022! Hope I find you well, in these not-so-easy times. Remember fuel is free in the land of Stunts, it’s the best place to go for a drive!
The sixth race of the year is nearing the end, so it’s a good time to look at the standings and see where we are. Starting at the top we have Alan Rotoi defending his 2021 title. With four victories out of five completed races, plus 7 bonus points, he's already looking at a 10+ point lead on CTG and Duplode. Will they keep it up? Because KyLiE is not far behind, leading a group of followers: the rest of the Doubleplusspeed and Looping Warrior teams, and solo racers Zapper and Heretic.
In the middle there is also Frieshansen, who holds a strong lead on the Amateur scoreboard, and who has been lining up strong results in every race! He only joined last autumn, but he’s putting a lot of effort in, and the results are glowing! Behind him Heretic, Cas and afullo are all fighting within 10 points, so everything is still open.
While Alan and Frieshansen top the respective leagues, they are also both part of the same team, Doubleplusspeed. New entry this year, this group is clearly aiming at the team championship, and halfway-in still rocks 100% participation!
We have ten days left on ZCT251, and then the first half of the season will be over. After that we have six more races to go, with tons of points still to distribute. Quite a lot can change!
Let's not focus only on ZakStunts though: there’s an impressive number of other events going on this year, which you should check out if you’d like to race with different rules and cars:
- Race for Kicks of course, with a new track starting at the beginning of every month.
- CCC, the Custom Car Championship, offers a completely new format where every race comes with a different set of hand-picked cars. Many are recent creations, and have never been used before in a competition!
- Live endurance races are going strong this year, with the next event coming up in less than two weeks, on the 3rd of July—don’t miss it.
