Event 7 of the F1Fanatic Forza Motorsport 3 Championship was held at Maple Valley, on the Full layout, and was made up of rounds 13 and 14 of the series. The cars used were 4-wheel-drive Audi TT S-Line Coupe sports cars, which are Class D 352 cars.

The Event was quite possibly the darkest day in Really Rubbish Racing history, when an accident at the end of the sprint race involving FlavouryRug and Tomcheesey ended in the deaths of 39 pitlane personnel.

The event saw the arrical of 2 newcomers to the series. Kimstermagnum and Doctorvee lined up alongside the series regulars in place of Sodamn Insane 6, who was missing his first events, and Javaguy360, who got in from work late and hadn't had dinner yet. Everyone's favourite not-so-reserve driver FlavouryRug continued to take the place of STR TommyB, who decided it would be more fun to spend the weekend in a damp tent near some tarmac.

The event also saw a fair few livery changes. Tomcheesey once again turned up in a revised version of Feta Motorsport's new colours, this time sporing an orange and grey look. RumblyLizard decided to rub salt into the Flying Lizard team's wounds by adding an even more realistic raptor to his new-look livery. FlavouryRug's striking yellow and green now included a picture of Barney the Dinosaur on the doors, and Smifaye droped his red altogether for a dodgy rip-off of the classic Rothmans Porsche look. The newbies turned up in independently-run red Audi TT's, presumably because thats the only colour the dealership had at such short notice.

The first race saw Smifaye's first sprint race victory, and his second overall. At the opposite end of the scale, the shorter of the two races saw Tomcheesey fail to score in a race for the first time since the first round of the season.

All the cars looked very good against the backdrop of the red, orange, and yellow colours that the perpetually-autumnal Maple Valley circuit provides, even though it was the height of summer.

Summary

The race ended for several drivers with a frightning accident at the last corner when Bookoi broke to stabalise his car having run wide at the previous corner, forcing Ajokay and FlavouryRug to swerve to avoid him. An unsighted Tomcheesey ended up tankslapping the BDGP driver, spinning him round and eventually crossing the finish line backwards. The inertia from the accident threw the Feta Motorsport Audi at high speed into the pitlane, killing 39 mechanics and engineers.
