Pacific GP - Fuji (Sunday, september 2nd, 2012) – Race Report, by Sexy Brigadeiro Neutral & pictures by Arek Razz

I'm gonna be honest with you guys...
I just don't feel like writing a big and 'amazing' report, so... whatever...
The fact is that I don't have much to talk about the race either - I mean, Arek once again did an amazing job with the pictures and they tell the story of the race better than my bla bla bla - so, thanks and congrats to Arek for his hard work in getting all of these great pics!

A few important things about the race that I'd like to say:

We had one driver coming back to the League and another saying goodbye...
Soutie is back (and ready to annoy Adrian, in case he was thinking things would be easier to him now that his biggest rival this season is leaving)...
And Tom is this guy... It's always sad to see someone go, especially someone who has always been so commited to this league and help it to be how it is today - ok, even if it's not 'the most perfect league evah', just try to remember how it was when Sven was the only guy taking care of everything, along with Joe... - they did the best they could then, of course! But still it was just too much for only 2 guys to do and then they 'recruited' Tom to the admin. team and a little later, I joined the 'party'... a few months later Arek also joined and we became the '5 Power Rangers'... so... it's REALLY sad to see one of us going away... BlackFox joined the 'gang' now and I'm sure he's gonna do a great job replacing Tom!
BTW, Tom is gonna stay 'around' and help us here and there, especially with the league website (his creation - which is great, BTW)! So, I hope he comes back as a driver in the future, as soon as he can!
Lots of respect for you, Tom! Take care, mate! Smile

About the 'weekend' (quali+race)...
Soutie didn't lose his 'good shape' and already got the pole, followed by Otti, Tom, Adrian, Arek, Alex and a lot of other guys... Razz

We had a clean start - I mean, at least we didn't have a big crash in the first corner(s), so congrats everyone! Still we had a few minor race incidents here and there and the Stewards are still discussing about them on the admin area - I'm gonna update my report as soon as their final decision is announced. All I know for SURE is that Sven was responsible for one of the most ridiculous crashes evah... in the middle of the main straight and he took deadfish out of the race - and almost took me out too... - why someone ALWAYS has to play the Grosjean part?!... (and some noobs call ME 'crashadeiro'... the 'funny' thing is that I don't remember EVER taking someone out of our races since I joined the league - although I myself was already taken out a couple of times and usually get bumped in almost every start, losing time and which ALSO gives damage to my car and etc, but... anyway)...

The race itself was pretty good for the guys in front... different tyres/pit stops strategies - which one would work the best?!... Engines blowing in the final lap... - all of that stuff that makes the races exciting in this league!

***UPDATE***

Fuji GP penalties:

- DT for Sven for causing a colision with Deadfish (L2)
- DT for Michal for taking a position from Jure by hiting into the back of his car (L1, T2)
- DT for Raikko for stopping on the middle of the curcuit causing a colision with Jure (L6, T3)
- DT for Antonio for crossing the white line (L23, L25)
And with that I'm sad to say that Michal, who had a pretty good race and scored a good amount of poins fell from 7th to 10th... But still he got 1 little point, which is his first one so far since he rejoined the league - YAY!!!

Also a special congrats to Jure for also scoring points for the 1st time in this season - well done, mate! Hope you can get a few more in the next races! Smile

And yes, I had to stop in the middle of the main straight and lost about 1 minute there, in the 20th lap, because I had to go to the door and get some meds that my grandma ordered from the drugstore, so... that ruined my race, obviously... but... come on, it's my grandma, ffs!... Anyway...
I was close to Michal and he finished in 7th, so I believe I could've finished next to him, maybe even in front of him and also scored a few points, which was my goal, as it always is...

Check out the pics and all the Tables below to see who won and how the Championship is now!

You guys take care and we'll see each other on track again soon!

'Checkered flag is out and so am I...'

Lap 20 - Nice fight between Blackfox and Michal! Michal makes a mistake and Black takes the 11th place! OINK!!!


Lap 20 - Antonio (10th) has some fun fighting vs Sven, who is lapped (and Sven passes him...) Razz


Lap 20 - Adrian is going to pass Alex in a moment and a while later does the same to Tom, taking 3rd place! 2-HIT COMBO for Kangaroo Kid - sweet!!! Basketball


Lap 20 - Sexy has to get her grandma's meds when the delivery guy rings the bell... and after a whole minute stopped at the main straight, he gets lapped by the leaders - He keeps going until the end, but all the fun was already gone... Neutral

Lap 34 (LAST LAP) - Otti (2nd) has a serious problem so near to the end... (Grisu said 'hi'... bom)


Lap 34 (LAST LAP) - Adrian wins the Pacific GP!!! But the crowd is still not giving a shit about it - poor Kangaroo Kid! It's hard to please these 'japanese' people, huh?! Neutral


Lap 34 (LAST LAP) - Soutie finishes in 2nd place! Welcome back after your 'personal break'! Very Happy


Lap 34 (LAST LAP) - And congrats Denis for the last podium spot, finishing the race in 3rd place, proving the 1 stop strategy was pretty good in this circuit! Wink

They were interested in me because they noticed that such a great and famous photographer is going to start taking pictures so they improved the haircuts and turned back towards me. It happens very often, it's a normal thing in my job Cool

Sure, Arek...
(now stop drinking that toilet water, pliss... something tells me it's not good for you...)
¬¬'

And thanks, Michal!
I wasn't in a great mood to write a great report, so since Arek's pictures are always pretty good and also 'tell' how the race was pretty well, I decided to only add a small text about the most relevant things.

BTW, for those who don't know, 99% of the captions in the pictures are made by Arek as well. I only add a few things here and there to them.
