Australia GP - Melbourne (Sunday, december 2nd, 2012) – Race Report, by Sexy Brigadeiro Neutral & pictures by Arek Smile

So... here we are again - a NEW SEASON begins!!! cheers

And as everyone already knows... we have a LOT of changes and new stuff!!!
We have a whole new mod (FSONE 09 instead of LMT 2010)!
We have 2 new teams that were not originally from this mod, but we added them anyway, so instead of only 10 teams/20 seats, we now have 12 teams and 24 seats!!! And oh, the new teams are Jaguar and Jordan!
And we also have a few new drivers - and even some drivers who were supposed to be reserves (at least for now), but already got a chance to race, since some of the 24 drivers officially signed in for the season were not present to race due to... whatever reasons they had...
Anyway... let's talk about the 'weekend'!

Even for the 'old drivers', almost everything was new, including their teams! Correct me if I'm wrong, but I guess only Joe McLaggen and Grisu stayed in the same teams/cars they used in the last season (McLaren and Williams, respectively), so for all the other guys, they had not only new cars to drive, but also new teams to defend! I'm on McLaren now, for example... and wearing Senna's helmet - could it be better?!
And oh, the helmets are also something new in the league!!! And no, we didn't race without helmets before... ¬¬' I meant that now we have custom helmets for almost all the drivers - at least the ones who expressed their will in having a custom one - and then that was a job for Tom McKay to paint most of them and for Sexy Brigadeiro (me) to make them actually work in the game - it wasn't an easy and simple job, but... we made it!!! And that was just another "little sumpin' sumpin'" to make this league even better!!!

So, when the 'weekend' started (and by 'weekend', I mean our 2 quali sessions before the race - LOL) we were all wondering who would be the fastest guys this season, since it's a whole new mod and some guys adapted better to it, some not... would/will it be someone 'dominating' the league again, or would/will each race be a new surprise?...
Well, some answers were given already, some not... And it was only the very first race of the season and obviously there's still a LOT to happen, so... we're all looking forward to another amazing season at the rFactor Racers League - don't you DARE to change the channel now and stay tuned for more!!!

THIS REPORT IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY BIG BILL HELL'S:

Wow, lord - WTF?!... Shocked

Anyway...

On the 1st quali session (Q1), we had a few guys having connection issues and we were wondering if the server (which is also new) would behave well, since it was the first time it was getting about 20 drivers online at the same time, but... in the end everything worked as fine as possible...
The 10 fastest guys qualified for Q2 and Grisu was being the fastest one and we were expecting a nice fight between him, Adrian, raikkO, lau and other guys too, but... Adrian was about 0.4 secs slower than Grisu (who got the pole) and both raikkO and lau failed on their one and only hotlap attempt, so... yep, congrats Biebs, for the very first pole of the season and with the new mod!

The race itself was also pretty good to some guys, but also pretty bad to others (me included)...
As we expected, both for being a new mod and easy to make a mistake with it and also because of the track which is not the easiest one... we had some race incidents, spins and even crashes!
More details about all of that 'action' below...

In the end Grisu won and did it pretty easily (he also got the fastest lap, so... it was a 'Triple Double' - or 'Full House', or 'Super Ultra Hyper Mother Fucker Kame Hame Ha Sexy Brigadeiro Style... something' - whatever! He got the pole, the win and the fastest lap - great job, Biebs!!!) Surprised
Adrian Kangaroo Kid S Shole, racing at his beloved home couldn't do much, but in the end 'almost' got Grisu, but... 'almost' was not enough - still a 2nd place and podium at home is always sweet! Smile
Joe McLaggen, my teammate (just sayin'...) got the last podium spot and Arek, The Noob, had it until the last lap when he decided to show why he is a noob and spun... El Muchacho Suave just said 'Muchas Gracias, cabron!' (which means 'Poor Arek, you're great!')... (no, it doesn't...) and laughed! Very Happy

And oh, the admins asked me to give a 'prize' to the biggest 'noob' of each race for whatever crazy shit they did on track - and they suggest me to call it 'The Crashadeiro Award', which I agreed... (I must've been drunk or something, but whatever!...)
And this time, for obvious reasons... The Crashadeiro Award for the Melbourne GP goes to...

ROMAIN GROSJEAN!!!... No, I'm kidding... Razz

It actually goes to his Belarus cousin, Denis!!! Congrats, mate!... I guess... scratch

Anywhore...
As I've just mentioned, more details about all of that stuff below! And this time, not only in the pictures, but also in some little surprise Arek (yes, he is a noob, but sometimes even he can have good ideas! Razz ) made for us and I hope all of you guys enjoy it!!!

'Checkered flag is out and so am I!'

Lap 7
- Arek: Meanwhile Grisu (1st) still pulls away.
- Sexy: Having all of those 12 year-old retarded fans running after him makes him run pretty fast - Biebs is good in 'getting away' from other people! Smile

- Sexy: Jaguar flag, pliss?... =)


Lap 8
- Arek: Arek (3rd) and Joe fight each other in the pit lane.

- Arek: Cueball (10) spins in front of the Chinese Dragon Smile
- Sexy: That's cheating! China Boy is using some crazy Jackie Chan trick! BAN!!! Mad

Lap 10
- Arek: Alex Hill passes Bober in fight for the 9th place.
- Sexy: China Boy is giving hell to whoever he meets on track! Twisted Evil


Lap 11
- Arek: Cueball spins his car. Sexy was lucky to avoid him and continues his chase to get Luft.
- Sexy: That was the moment of the race when I thought things were start to look a little better to me, but...


Lap 11
- Arek: Close duel between Lau 4th and Arek. Arek's attack was ineffective but a while later Lau comes to the pits to change his tyres.
- Sexy: 'Arek's attack was ineffective'... nuff said. Razz


Lap 11
- Arek: What an huge airbourne by Sexy and Denis!!! xD
- Sexy: ...as I was saying... Rolling Eyes


Lap 12
- Arek: Sven lets Grisu go through instead of slowing him down for that guy coming from behind you can see in the background... What a noob! Razz
- Sexy: It's always funny to see YOU calling someone else a noob... seu Juvenil!!! BTW, I wish Sven was always easy to overtake like that! Smile


Lap 12
- Arek: Blackfox rejoins the track after his pit stop right in front of Raikko who makes a good use with his warm tyres passing him.
- Sexy: raikkO had to take that chance and he did it well!


Lap 12

Lap 13
- Arek: Razz
- Sexy: facepalm


Lap 13
- Arek: Blackfox (11th) makes a little mistake going wide on the grass but it was enough for Raikko and Sexy. Team Force Belarus Denis and Bober watch the action in front.
- Sexy: We're the 5 Power Rangers getting into formation - GO MEGAZORD!!! (Kill the evil Sven and his annoying sidekick, Garotinho Juvenil, AKA Arek, The Noob!!!) Very Happy


Lap 13
- Arek: Lau and Luft having a close and hard battle for the 7th place till meet ADI spinning in a dangerous place. Luft takes the wrong line and Lau doesn't have problems to pass.
- Sexy: Wow, that was close! shockedd


Lap 14
- Arek: Sven sends Alex Hill (5th) in the gravel. He letting him go and then passes clear while later. Then Alex goes to the pits dropping down.
- Sexy: Sven was never that nice to me... Neutral


Lap 15
- Arek: Adrian S Shole who drives with the only one pit stop leaves the pits in 3rd place behind Grisu and Arek.
- Sexy: He picked the best pit stop strategy and it would've given him the win if it wasn't by a few mistakes here and there!


Lap 15
- Arek: Lau passes Sven and gets up to 5th.
- Sexy: Sven didn't even try to hold lau down...


Lap 16
- Arek: Arnie vs Sexy
- Sexy: I was about to make my pit stop on lap 17, so my tyres were all fucked up - and I was on Hards (slowest ones) and Arnie had fresh tyres... I couldn't do much to hold him back, even if I wanted... Sad


Lap 18
- Arek: Raikko passes Tom McKay in battle for 7th.
- Sexy: That's his way of thanking for the helmet Tom painted for him... Razz


Lap 19
- Arek: Adrian S Shole spins.
- Sexy: And that probably costed him the win, or at least the chance for a more direct fight with Grisu on the last laps...


Lap 20
- Arek: Arek rejoins the track after his second pit stop in front of Sven (5th) and Joe who made his pit one on the previous lap. Sven is very kind and doesn't fight agressively knowing that he has to pit yet.
- Sexy: 'Sven' and 'kind' are two words that just can't be in the same sentence... I wonder if he was abducted and the ETs left this new guy in his place - that's not the Sven we know... Razz


Lap 20
- Arek: Then he let Joe go through as well Razz
- Sexy: See?!... scratch


Lap 20
- Arek: Grisu leaves the pits and unhesitatingly (what a word Razz) goes for the win.
- Sexy: Next time, try a german word instead. Smile


Lap 22
- Arek: Sexy in the Finnish sandwich. Bober (12th) leads the group.
- Sexy: They love me in Finland... Shocked


Lap 24
- Arek: Adrian S Shole passes by the stands full of his fans Smile
- Sexy: Show off... Evil or Very Mad


Lap 24
- Arek: Alex Hill vs Denis. Denis passes him taking his 9th place but Alex touches him causing his spin. Then he let him recover the position. Nice Smile
- Sexy: A Gentlemen's race - My name is Sexy Brigadeiro and I approve this message! Smile (actually I hired Alex to revenge me, but he failed... Razz )


Lap 25
- Arek: This time with Luft (13th) inside but only for a while Razz
- Sexy: Sandwiches are pretty popular in Finland, huh? They can put anything in them! Suspect


Lap 26
- Arek: Black does a mistake on his favorite kerb and Luft with Sexy take his 13th place.
- Sexy: Thanks, Blacko!!! Very Happy


Lap 29 - LAST LAP!
- Arek: Unforgetable moment for Arek who spend almost the whole race in 3rd place. Moment of deconcentration after which Arek catches a little bit grass by his rear tyre in the braking zone fisnishes like this. If Joe didn't have his helmet on we would see a big banana on his face Razz What an epic fail!!! Razz
- Sexy: Good Job! - https://youtu.be/ZQX50zskILE?hd=1


Lap 29 - LAST LAP!

Lap 29 - LAST LAP!
- Arek: Grisu wins the Australian GP!!!
- Sexy: OMG, now those 12 year old retarded fans won't stop screaming until Bahrain... then they're gonna scream even more! Evil or Very Mad - Congrats, Girus, The Setup Trickster!!! Razz

Good job.

You forgot my crash with Luft Razz (the reason I wasn't in the points)



Race driving is like trying to thread a needle while running from a saber tooth tiger.
