Tom chose the R1 989 Acura ARX-02a at the reverse Festival layout of Bernese Alps:
"My choice for OSCAR is the R1 #66 Acura around Alps Festival Reverse, with the intention that every part of the track can be used to race on. I say it makes it extremely fun when lapping - if you run wide at turn one the banking takes you round and you stay flat out, then there's 4 quick left/rights which again you can take at full speed, then you just drop down a gear and you can take it without braking. The bit by the lake you can run very wide and it means you can take the right hander really fast and there's enough run off on the outside to get you back on the track without losing any speed.

It's really fun and feels almost like an old-school Arcade game like Wipeout!"

This is a no track boundaries round. In the race, the walls are the track limits.

Alex chose the D 323 Mazda MX-5 Superlight at Laguna Seca:
"A little bit of an homage to iRacing, as several of the club are iRacing drivers, yet it's going to be a fair while before we ever have an iRace. The Mazda MX-5 is one of the starter cars in iRacing, and Laguna Seca is one of the tracks you race it on. However, as fun as the MX-5 is, Forza's MX5 Superlight is even more funner, plus it looks pretty unique and drives incredibly well. So I chose that instead."

It's so happy!
Goteki House battled with each other once again.
This 5-way battle for 6th lasted the majority of the race.
Just in case there was any doubt as to which lobby this is.
Lobby goes through the Corckscrew
Icthyes led lobby 2 early on.
Wipe that brain-eating grin off your face...
Ratonedge drops back early on, but catches up later.
Covamalia lays down some rubber at the top of the Corkscrew.
Ajokay and NOc75 go side-by-side through the left-hander.
Sparks fly from Don Mateo up the Rahal Straight.
Becker wore a simple, all-black livery in memory of his late father.
Ajokay squeezes himself inside Covamalia's small inside opening
Aren't your wheels meant to point into a corner?
Okay, we can put your Mazda into a RRR race, send it around for a few laps...
...aaaaand it's gone.

PJ and Dan Thorn fought hard for first place in Stage A.
It was a nervy race for PJ at times, but he held on for his maiden victory.
