Event 9 of the F1Fanatic Forza Motorsport 3 Championship was held at Suzuka, on the Full layout, and wase made up of rounds 17 and 18 of the series. The cars used were Nissan 370Z's, which are Class B 441 cars.
The event marked the first time in which the Original 8 drivers who signed up for the championship were completing against each other since the end of event 2, back in the first week of competition. Therefore, this was the first event that not-really-reserve driver FlavouryRug could not participate in since event 3.
The sprint race saw little incident, and a clean race was lead home by Smifaye, giving the Black Cats Racing Team their 3rd sprint race victory, a whisker ahead of Ajokay Motorsport's Ajokay, bringing the car home for it's second 2nd place in a row. Sodamn Insane 6 rounded out the podium.
The feature race included a big accident involving 4 cars at the end of the first lap. Tomcheesey, driving for the first time without ABS installed on his car, locked his Nissan 370z's brakes on the approach to the Casino Triangle, causing carnage when he hit Smifaye, spinning him out. This bunched the field up, allowing RumblyLizard to sneak through, and go on to lead the remainder of the race.
Half way through the race, a bizarre turn of events caused Tomcheesey's Nissan to shift to a parallel universe, leaving him on an empty Suzuka circuit, whilst the race he left behind carried on without him. The other drivers reported being able to still speak with the Feta Motorsport driver across the dimentional rift, and he reportedly finished his own race in a time good enough for 6th. Unfortunately, as no-one but Tom himself could prove this, his result would be classified as a DNF (DimentioN Flip).
Although it wasn't an easy win by any means, as Sodamn Insane 6 was fast closing the gap to the lead with every passing lap, the Rumbly Raptor Racing driver won by over 4 seconds, his first victory since the Sebring races. Ajokay completed the podium with 3rd.
