wiscR56 leads John-GT5. The pair had a spirited battle throughout with John-GT5 taking 5th by less than 5 seconds.

Kamloops brought his battle weary Audi home to the podium - 3rd place.

The pass: John-GT5 gets by wiscR56 going past the baseball stadium.

Traffic: eciracing did a great job weaving through backmarkers throughout. Here

he gains breathing room from the hardpressing shinshiki204.

shinshiki204 takes the lead on lap 26 as eciracing stumbles briefly.

shinsiki204 looked like he had run a perfect race hunting down and passing the leader

but...eciracing passed back on lap 28. It looked like shinsiki204 might have had

problems with the debris field from the first pass.

60 hard earned points and 1st place: eciracing crosses the finish line with

shinsiki204 in the background, a close 2nd.

2 extra hard earned points: Juan-de-jaunerz nips me (JCH8r) for 7th place just as

time expires in the last action of the race.

Congrats to all and thanks for putting this series together and participating.

Involving the points system for disconnections... I was thinking of something simpler than last season. I decided on giving out 20 points if someone gets disconnected (The same points as 16th place) regardless of how much of the race was completed. I'll put that in the OP and update the standings now.

Gojet-64 is now Encvell. (Gojet-64 is now only used for older games and Vita)

Hey Gojet-64, what if we use the third reserved slot for a manufacturers' championship? Just a thought.

I like that idea. There is a little more variety now than last year (half of us were running Bentleys and the other half were running Mazdas). Should be interesting.

Which reminds me, I have a friend who MIGHT be interested in joining.  Who do I tell him is running the series, Gojet or John?

Hey eci.  You can tell your friend that Gojet is the host, I am just helping when Gojet can't make it. So ask your friend to send both of us a FR with the words Le Mans 2012 in it somewhere so that we know is for this.  (I delete strangers FR from BF3 all the time so)

@ JCH8r:  Hey JC, great pictures man.  I can see that you are trying to cover all the highlights of the race.  Story telling with picture and some words.  Very cool.   And thanks for doing it. I believe what you've did will also get new people who read our post here wanting to join our future races.

LOL!!!  This is what I was talking about after the race yesterday.  I was chasing wisc for many laps trying to find where and when to pass him.  Then we came up to shark and I thought to myself, "now how the heck I am going to pass two guys plus it will take me a lot more time now to clear both of them." Then all the sudden eci comes up to us and like a feather blowing thru the outline of a car, he passed all three of us in less then 5 sec.    Great driving eci.

Hahaha.  I remember that!  I came around the corner and saw all 3 of you in front of me.  I was like, crap!  I can't take to long to get by these guys, I've got shin only a few seconds behind me!  I don't know how it happened, but I was able to get through fairly quickly.  Great driving by all parties in that situation.
