Event 8 of the F1Fanatic Forza Motorsport 3 Championship was held at the Iberian International Circuit, on the short circuit, and included rounds 15 and 16. The cars used were various Class C 425 cars.
Due to the circuit's short, fast nature, the races were longer than previous rounds, with the sprint race lasting for 7 laps, and the feature requiring 20 white-knuckle laps to be completed.
Both races were marred by first-lap incidents involving at least 4 cars. Smifaye won the sprint race in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8, and Tomcheesey took the victory in the feature having kept out of trouble and driven a near inch-perfect race.
A range of cars were on show, including a Mitsubishi Evo 8, Dodge SRT4, Ford Fiesta Zetec S, Audi S5, and the series' third clashgate with a pair of Renault Clio RS197's. So closely matched were theses Clios that both Ajokay and Bookoi posted idenical fastest laptimes of 44.807 seconds. Series debutants Kimstermagnum and Doctorvee brought along a Porsche 914/6 anda Lotus Evora respectively. Both cars were unpainted and un-numbered due to the lack of preparation time. Having been chosen only hours before, both drivers entered as independents, driving for themselves rather than a team.
Round 16 saw Tomcheesey take his 5th win of the championship, making him the most winningest driver ahead of Sodamn Insane 6, and moved well ahead of the rest of the drivers in the championship standings, with 58 points.
Ajokay scored his first podium finish for 10 races, which he admitted was a "...step in the right direction." following a string of average results. Smifaye continued his feat of scoring points in every race he's entered, and FlavouryRug continued his peculiar record of finishing either on the podium, or out of the points. No 4ths, 5ths or 6ths for him!
