    Main tournament write-up 
    Race-offs and qualifications:
    (groups where the race offs had no impact of someone not being able to qualify have not been rewatched by me the writeup is done based on the raceresult for those groups)

    Group A

    In group A the race was allor nothing for ColJustJames and Hoentoe, both having won 5 races in the groupthey placed 2nd. This means both of them had a decisive race to see who wouldtake 2nd place in the group and qualify for the knockout stage. The previoushead-to-head duel between them resulted in a win for Hoentoe, though the marginwas small with a 3.77 second difference.
    ColJustJames immediatelytakes the lead in the race and finishes lap 1 first with 1 second to spare onHoentoe. Lap 2 ColJustJames immediately sets a fast pace and finishes the lapwith a 01:21.xx time, which made him gain 7 seconds on Hoentoe making the total8 seconds behind. Hoentoe reduces it back to 7 seconds in the next lap, but inlap 4 something seems to be wrong as Hoentoe loses 11 seconds in 1 lap, with areally slow lap time of 01:33.xx. Hoentoe recuperated 6 seconds back in lap 5,bringing the total back to 12 seconds. However then it goes down again and inlap 10 he is 23 seconds behind ColJustJames. 3/4th in the race the differenceis already 29 seconds, at the end of lap 18 it is 35 seconds total, only acrash could have saved Hoentoe now. The last 2 laps he takes back a couple moreseconds, but he does finish 29.91 seconds later than ColJustJames. Resulting inqualification for ColJustJames and the end of the tournament for Hoentoe.

    Group C
    In Group C the raceoff wasto determine who would take 1st place and who would take 2nd place in the race.The previous head-to-head duel between them resulted in a win for JACR, so we all wondered if miro would be able to do even better now. What we can alreadysay for certain is that both racers were alot faster than in their 1st race.Since both racers were qualified we did not send someone to follow each lap ofthe race. This time however, Miro was fast and got the first place in thegroup.

    Group C: Raceoff for 1st and 2nd place

    Group D
    In Group D it was also arace between 2 contestants that would qualify, only who would take 1st placewas at stake. Ketone and TheCarCollector both only had 1 loss during the groupstage so we hope the race would be interesting to watch. Their previous head-to-headrace already dated back to the first round in the tournament, both racersdidn’t perform to great that first race, with especially TheCarCollector havinga bad time. So Ketone won the first encounter, would he be able to repeat thatand take the 1st place in the group? Since we had limited resources and thestakes were not that high it meant that we did not send someone to follow eachlap. Ketone however did not succeed to win again, TheCarCollector was too fastthis race and took first place in the group.

    Group D: Raceoff for 1st and 2nd place

    Group F
    Group be saw no race-offs.

    Qualified in group:
    1) MIA
    2) Green_Revolver

    Group G
    In group G, we have 3people with the same amount of points for 1st place: Lugburz, dromedan andFortunas. This means we will see a raceoff between 3 people for 2 qualifying spots.This is a harsh race for the person coming in 3rd position since Wreckfest willend for them. For the race itself: it is hard to say if there is any favouritesince neither of them was able to defeat the 2 others in the group stage. Sonow we go live to the racetrack: Lap 1 first corner Lugburz is leading but getsovertaken in the second corner by Fortunas, but the entire first lap it isclose between them all. Dromedan crosses the finish line first and takes 2seconds on Fortunas and Lugburz, the entire first 8 laps they all switch placesconstantly, someone loses a bit of distance but regains and takes the lead.With lap 9 it is the first time that Fortunas falls a bit behind to her other 2opponents. This goes on like this till lap 15, where Lugburz and dromedan justseem to take turns leading in the race. Lap 16 we see Lugburz take somedistance on dromedan too, is this the breakpoint to determine the winner of therace? Fortunas is already about 7 laps remaining at the same distance behindthe leader in the race. Lap 17 dromedan recovered nicely and was even able toovertake Lugburz again, creating a small gap. At the end of lap 19 Lugburzclosed the gap and was back in the race, Fortunas still remained at about thesame distance behind. Is this the end for Fortunas? In the cornering part inthe final lap Lugburz overtakes dromedan and drives off, Fortunas can’t closethe gap in the last lap and it ends in a loss and end of tournament for Fortunas.

    Group G: Raceoff for 1st and 2nd place

    2) dromedan

    Group H
    Like you could read in thewriteup of the last round, the result of this group was completely unexpectedand we now have 5 people competing for the 2nd place in the group. So since wehave so many people in the race it is hard to determine a favourite, if we haveto pick we would go for the highest rs racer at signup in this race and thatwould be Strandevader.
    First lap we sawStrandevader passing the finish line with a small gap ahead of Brainslugfollowed by the rest. At the start of lap 4 Strandevader took more distance onBrainslug, Kafia, Lalop and vInDicaTed followed a bit behind Brainslug. In lap6 Brainslug catches up and immediately overtakes Strandevader, making Brainsluggo into lap 7 as a leader. Lalop and Kafia already follow quite a bit behind,vInDicaTed seems to have a bad run currently since he is quite a bit behindboth Lalop and Kafia. Lap 9 we see Strandevader has caught back up to Brainslugand they are now going neck to neck into lap 10, in lap 10 Brainslug overtakesfor a brief moment again, but Strandevader passes the finish line ahead ofBrainslug again, in the back Lalop is in pursuit of Brainslug leaving behindvInDicaTed in 4th place and Kafia in 5th. Kafia is suddenly quite a bit behind.The next laps Brainslug and Strandevader switch places occasionally. Lalop andvInDicaTed form a pair in pursuit now and Kafia is trying to catch up to them.By the end of lap 18 we are becoming confident that either Brainslug orStrandevader will take the coveted place in the final stage of wreckfest, Lalopand vInDicaTed don’t seem to be able to close the gap. So far Brainslug andStrandevader switch places often in the race. At The end of lap 19 we seeBrainslug take distances from Strandevader and now Strandevader has to makesome time good in the final lap if he still wants to win. Kafia seems to bestarting a really fast lap in the last lap too, but we assume it is way toolate for that. Brainslug managed to keep his distance in that 1 lap and won therace, placing him for the 2nd round of the tournament. Kafia with her fast lapmanaged to catch up with vInDicaTed against the odds of being behind for solong.

    Group I
    So likementioned in a previous write up the outcome of this group amazed us in theleast. Ali_Looya making it so with her win that 4 people were able to join arace off for 2nd place in group I. This however means that 3 of them will falloff and their tournament ends. We can’t say anything about who would be afavourite based on their results in the group stage, only Mobil hasn’t won anyof his races against either of them. First lap Tittie_Twister seems to be goodat the cornering part of the track since he takes a small gap over the rest ofthe racers, he however loses that gap once the cornering part is over and theentire pack is back together. Next lap Mobil and Xopowo make a small gap andare being chased by Ali_Looya and Tittie_Twister. Lap 6 we see Xopowo take asmall lead over the others, Ali_Looya and Tittie_twister in the meantime caughtup with Mobil. The next lap Tittie_Twister had a bad lap and fell behind,Xopowo still ahead a bit of Mobil and Ali_Looya. Lap 10 we see Ali_Looya hascaught up with Xopowo and overtaken her too, Mobil follows a little bit behindXopowo and Tittie_Twister still dangles behind. Lap 13 Ali_looya makes a smallgap and leads alone followed by Xopowo and Mobil, Tittie_Twister might havegone for the strategy to wait till the last 25% of the race? In the meanwhileMobil fell behind Xopowo, the order remained the same as they crossed thefinish line. Mobil had another slow lap and Tittie_Twister now caught up tohim. Xopowo and Ali_Looya are neck to neck. Lap 15 Xopowo now takes the leadand wins some time on Ali_Looya. Tittie_Twister overtook Mobil and is setting afaster pace than before. Lap 18 we see Xopowo still leading closely followed byAli_Looya and Tittie_Twister is closing in more on them. Mobil is a bit behind Tittie_Twister.During lap 19 and beginning of lap 20 Ali_Looya and Xopowo were overtaking eachother, Tittie_Twister briefly was in the slipstream too. Lap 20 Ali_Looya takesdistance from Xopowo, although it seems that Xopowo made some errors in the corneringpart, Tittie_Twister is able to pass Xopowo in this part too. Right after thecornering part Tittie_Twister makes an error and falls behind again, Xopowocan’t close the gap that fell in the cornering part either between Ali_Looyaand her. Mobil sadly had no chance it seems today. Ali_Looya goes on to thefinal stage.

    Group J
    Smolder and Prezze werefacing eachother in group J to see who would take the first spot in the group.The previous result between both of the qualifiers in this group resulted in anarrow win for Smolder. Once again since we considered other races more importantdue to the lack of resources we had. We only received the finishing result,based upon that it seemed that this time Smolder was not able to beat Prezze,making Prezze winner in the group.

    Group K
    Race off ingroup K to determine the winner of the group between Storm1968 and Vasto-Lorde.The earlier encounter in the group dates back to round 1 where Storm1968 losthis only race in the tournament against Vasto-Lorde. Once again with all othersimilar races the person who won the earlier encounter loses. In the case ofVasto-Lorde we consider it maybe saving energy?

    Group L
    In group Lafter today's race 1 of the 3 races won’t be able to compete anymore in thisedition of Wreckfest. The 3 tied leaders in the group race for spot 1 and 2 onthe tables and the accompanying qualification for the final stage. In the groupstage races Yourowner managed to win from both his opponents so based on thatstatistic we make him favourite in the race, RefleX_ won from Krachas and weestimate he was able to get the 2nd place that way. Do note however that race 1on 1 is completely different than a race with 3 people. So we will see what therace shows us:
    Until lap 9 therace was completely open, lap 9 is the first time we see one of the racers fallbehind a bit. Victim Krachas. For the next 10 laps nothing changes, RefleX_ andYourowner are each lap switching places, but none of them can drive away fromthe other. Krachas can’t seem to make up the time he lost in lap 9 but he doesnot lose more time either. It will however be difficult to make up that distancein 1 lap. In the last lap with 2 corners to go, Yourowner is trying to passRefleX_ the difference seems to be small so I guess I'll have to rely on aphoto finish to know who eventually wins the race, but they were driving nextto each other towards the finish line. RefleX_ got called out as the winner ofthe race with only a difference of 0.34 seconds, Krachas finished third withabout 9.75 seconds after RefleX_.

    Group M
    In group M wehave a fight between MonChoon and bobdawildman for the 2nd place in the group.WInning the race will grant them qualifications for the final stage of thetournament. Their previous encounter ended in a big victory for bobdawildman.MonChoon though will not want to give up easily either. Let’s go to the race:
    In the firstlap we see bobdawildman taking the lead and having a small gap of 1 second onMonChoon. MonChoon is not startled with the start of bobdawildman and takesover in the cornering part during lap 2 and leads with 3 seconds at the end ofthe lap. By the end of lap 6 the difference between MonChoon and bobdawildmangrew by another 11 seconds to a total of 14 seconds. Lap 7 is the first timebobdawildman can take some time back and it drops back to 10 seconds. Halfwaythe race however MonChoon is leading with a 15 second gap and he keepsincreasing it till lap 16 where he is 27 seconds ahead. For most racers thisgap i too big with only a couple of laps remaining. Bobdawildman takes back 7seconds over the next 2 laps but then MonChoon sets the pace again resulting ina win for MonChoon.

    Group N
    Race for place1 and 2 in group N between toLLto, bLiNd, Bastard and Johor. We can’t give adistinct favourite based on results in the group stage nor based on rs atsignup, this is an open group so it can prove to be a close race.
    First laptoLLto takes the lead and Johor falls a bit behind the rest of the opponents.At the end of lap 5 toLLto already has taken quite some distance on the rest,the rest of the pack seem to be quite up for some action since the positions dochange often for 2,3 and 4th. End of lap 10 I would almost dare to say thattoLLto is gonna be unstoppable and just gonna drive off to victory. He is aheadquite a big distance, for the others it means that they will have to fight for2nd place. Currently bLiNd is the one leaving Bastard behind, while Johorfollows quite a bit behind Bastard. Lap 11 Bastard caught up to bLiNd althoughbriefly because he seems to have misjudged a corner and suddenly falls back.Lap 13: toLLto is now 1.07% ahead of bLiNd, Bastard has had a couple of badlaps, if he wants to play for the 2nd place he has to change that up entirely.Is Johor waiting for the last quarter of the race? End of lap 15 it seems thatBastard has caught up again to bLiNd, the second place can be exciting. toLLto unlesshe crashes we don’t expect him to lose any place anymore. Lap 17 the fight for2nd place is already busy, Bastard and bLiNd are really fighting it out. Thisis racing at it’s best, in the next 2 laps we see bLiNd and Bastard constantlyovertaking each other, this is what the audience loves. Is one of them going tomake an error in the final lap? Either way at the end of lap 19 Bastard is in2nd place closely followed by bLiNd. 3 corners left in lap 20 and bLiNdovertakes Bastard, is this the point where 2nd place is determined? toLLto isat that point already over the finish line in an amazing 0:28:10.37 timecrushing the opposition. Ohmy that overtake we will have to call the bLiNdcorner, bLiNd succeeded in claiming the second place with 1.28 secondsdifference. Johor eventually crosses the finish line 33.21 seconds later thantoLLto. What a race ladiesand gentlemen.

    Group O
    Group O has arace for 2nd place on the menu between GFTL and The_Joker. The previous raceresulted in the race-off which was won by GFTL, we wonder if this result putsmore stress on The_Joker during this race, we will soon find out from ourreporter:
    GFTLimmediately grabs The_Joker by the throat in this first lap gaining 5 secondson him, the second lap GFTL takes 3 more seconds. The next 5 laps both win andlose the same amount and the difference between both of them remains at 8seconds, then gftl sets a fast lap and takes 6 more seconds in 1 lap whileThe_Joker when winning a lap only is able to nibble off a couple of seconds.Lap 10 GFTL is ahead 17 seconds, lap 15 it’s still 18 seconds. In lap 16The_Joker sets a nice lap which is good to gain 5 seconds back, then there areagain small gains and losses. Both racers start the last lap with a differenceof 13 seconds between GFTL and The_Joker, during the last lap The_Joker sets anice fast pace again but it is a couple of laps too late. GFTL secured his 2nd place in the group

    Newbie tournament write-up (thanks again to Lightor for writing this up about 95%, I can take no credit for it)
    after round 8:

    Group A
    BeepBeepBoop, having won yesterdays race and todays race against KONYS in an impressive performance, has taken the lead in group A, being the sole leader now, giving him good chances for qualifying. In the next race AmritTwo unfortunately lost another race, this time against Resurrector00, putting him and his latest opponent in fifth or sixth place, depending on how the race between Nick9633 and KungFuhrer goes, though that result is not in yet.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    BeepBeepBoop: always qualified, elfo has no race left so no one can catch up to him either.
    Elfo: dependant on the results of other, if cnn and Konys (possibly KungFuhrer too) lose their race Elfo qualifies in 2nd place. If one of them wins there will be a race off for 2nd place, this can be a race off of max. Elfo, mcnn, Konys and KungFuhrer depending on the results.
    Mcnn: has to win his race against BeepBeepBoop in order to be able to enter in a race off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people depending on results).
    KONYS: has to win her race against Resurrector00 in order to be able to enter in a race-off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people depending on results).
    KungFuhrer: has to win his round 8 race and his round 9 race in order to be able to enter in a race-off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people)

    Fastest finish time group A & overall: BeepBeepBoop 0:45:20.12

    Group B
    In our first race we got plwslw, who had group B‘s current fastest time, against DrVoid. DrVoid racing a formidable time of 45:48.17, a new best for the group, taking their fourth with and third place in the tournament. Next up was Flid, racing against southbank. Flid was able to bag a win aswell, also gaining his fourth win in this group stage, putting him on third together with DrVoid. In our third race of this group we have Xenos48 against NSFlygirl1966. Xenos proving to be the faster racer today, finally able to grab a second win for themselves in this tournament. Our last match-up is Yeala against ThePlugCasper, Yeala taking a win with just 2.5 seconds ahead, barely taking their fifth win and putting them on first place, together with Leelip.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    Leelip: qualifies if he wins his next race. If Leelip wins her race and Yeala loses, Leelip takes first place. If both Yeala and Leelip win they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Leelip loses her race and Yeala wins her race, then Leelip will end up in race-off for 2nd place against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid. If Leelip and Yeala lose they end up in a race-off against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid for place 1 and 2
    Yeala: qualifies if she wins her next race. If Yeala wins her race and Leelip loses, Yeala takes first place. If both Yeala and Leelip win they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Yeala loses her race and Leelip wins his race, then Yeala will end up in race-off for 2nd place against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid. If Leelip and Yeala lose they end up in a race-off against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid for place 1 and 2
    DrVoid: in order to be able to enter in a race-off, DrVoid has to win his race and Leelip or Yeala have to lose. He then ends up in a race-off for 2nd place. If both Leelip and Yeala lose and he wins, he ends up in a race-off for place 1 and 2.
    Flid: in order to be able to enter in a race-off, Flid has to win his race and Leelip or Yeama have to lose. He tne ends up in a race-off for 2nd place. If both Leelip and Yeala lose and he wins, he ends up in a race-off for place 1 and 2

    Fastest finish time group B: DrVoid 0:45:48.17

    Group C
    Group C has proven today to be quite a close group. JUSTIN, yesterdays leader, has been beaten in their duel with Degtyrev with just 1.04 seconds behind, Degtyrev taking their third win in this group stage. Surprisingly this hasn‘t been the closest race of the day yet. Bt999 has won against their opponent bear1lit by just 0.9 seconds, putting themselves at three wins together with bear1lit and Degtyrev. Next, JayJay7775 emerged victorious against Cayde-6, taking their fifth win and now leading group C together with JUSTIN. Our last race was Themick racing against Bickomad, Themick driving overall a better race and taking their fourth win, sitting on third place now with Bickomad and Cayde-6.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    JayJay7775: qualifies if he wins his race against bear1lit. If Justin loses his race and JayJay7775 wins his race he takes 1st place. If both Justin and JayJay7775 win their race they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If JayJay7775 loses and Justin wins his race, he always ends up in a race-off for 2nd place since Themick has a fillup race (this is possible in this scenario against max 2 others Themick + Bickomad)
    Justin: qualifies if he wins his race against Cayde-6. If both JayJay7775 and Justin win their race they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Justin loses his race and JayJay7775 wins his race, he always ends up in a race-off for 2nd place against at least Themick and Cayde-6, if Bickomad wins his race he gets added to that race-off too.
    Cayde-6: has to win his race against Justin, if he does he always gets a race-off between him, Justin and Themick. If Bickomad should win his race he will get added to that list too.
    Themick: always gets a point due to being matched against fillup, if JayJay7775 or Justin lose he ends up in a race-off (in the oddest possibility it can be a race-off for 1 and 2).
    Bickomad: has to win his race, if then either JayJay7775 or Justin loses he ends up in a race-off.
    Oddest possibility: JayJay7775 loses, Justin loses, Bickomad wins => race-off with 5 people (JayJay7775, Justin, Cayde-6, Themick and Bickomad)

    Fastest finish time group C: JayJay7775 0:45:46.10

    Group D
    Group D wanted to show how well coordinated they are on their second to last race day, (almost) all winners finishing withing 10 seconds of eachother and all losers aswell. These results are as following, from fastest to slowest winner: 4n4rchist (45:55.79) against Youngcas (46:35.15), ThunderDrak (46:02.15) against illusionate(46:35.50), BillHimself (46:04.09) against RawRexHead (46:28.30) and CJBWRC (46:06.34) against Rosierosie (46:38.03). Is this just a huge coincidence, coordination or another one of these big multi scandal theories (looking at you CJBWRC)? We will see. The current podium in group D looks like the following: ThunderDrak - first place, BillHimself - second place, 4n4rchist & RawRexHead - third place.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    ThunderDrak = If he wins he is qualified. If he loses and BillHimself wins, its race off for first and second.
    BillHimself = If he wins and ThunderDrak wins he is qualified as second. If He wins and ThunderDrak loses its race off for first and second. If he loses he faces the winner from 4n4rchist vs RawRexHead and its race off for second.
    4n4rchist = Can only qualify if he wins against RawRexHead and BillHimself loses. Then they need to win the race off for second.
    RawRexHead = Same as 4n4rchist.

    Fastest finish time group D: Illusionate 0:45:50.71

    Group E
    SpeedSkateR is still the leader of group E. In the race Pacoano versus SleepIsForWeak, SleepIsForWeak was able to drive a better time, taking their third win of the groupstage. Sarm took their fourth win, beating Hanging_Judge by 7.29 seconds. The results for nomoretime & SpeedSkateR and overDos3 & omcatmeowbuddy are not in yet.

    A lot of results missing which would make the analysis a bit too extensive.
    Most likely:
    1st Place: SpeedSkateR
    2nd Place: overDos3 or decided through race off

    Fastest finish time group E: SpeedSkateR 0:45:55.84

    Group F
    Our first race in group F was an exciting one. The groups leader, mattynob, driving against the groups fastest, aaronachnid. mattynob drove an incredible race, missing aaronachnid’s best time by just 0.15 seconds. Meanwhile aaronachnid had a rough time on the track today, being over a minute slower than his opponent, mattynob. With this mattynob extended his lead in the group, certainly an important win for him and a terrible loss for aaronachnid, whose chances of qualifying drastically sank. mathuaerknedam won their race against Mad_Ninja with a very good time aswell, driving a 45:47.49 and taking their fourth win. In our next duel Jorgen found himself facing Geeklord, both participants driving a good race but ultimately Jorgen had the better race, Jorgen taking their third win of the tournament. At the time of writing, WarFlamezzz and Bilbosaggings’ results are not in yet.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    mattynob = Qualified, no matter what
    Geeklord = Qualifies if he wins and mathuaerknedam and Bilbosaggings lose. If he wins and mathuaerknedam and/or Bilbosaggings win all winners race off for second.
    mathuaerknedam = Same as with Geeklord.
    aaronachnid = Through Oddest Possibility.
    Bilbosaggings = Same as Geeklord.
    MkeMalta = Through Oddest Possibility.
    Jorgen = Through Oddest Possibility.
    Oddest possibility = Bilbosaggings loses against mattynob, mathuaerknedam loses and Geeklord loses -> Race off for second place with 6 people.

    Fastest finish time group F: aaronachnid 0:45:34.32

    Group G
    DrClarkus has taken home another win, winning against dev_is_ded and extending his lead towards the rest of the group. Alyssa also won their race, their opponent, DaigleTheBagel, seemingly having a bad day, driving a time of 47:00.97, over a minute slower than Alyssa. leckie2786, the currently fastest of the group, won against the past leader gabbar_dude, putting gabbar_dude in second place and causing him to lose his lead. At the time of writing, the result of DOVER and TheTyrantSmew are not in yet.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    DrClarkus = Qualified, no matter what
    gabbar_dude = Qualifies if DOVER and leckie2786 lose their races. Otherwise race off with any of those two that wins.
    DOVER = Can only qualify if he wins, he then ends up in a race off with atleast gabbar_dude and maybe leckie2786 if he wins. Needs to win that to qualify.
    leckie2786 = Same as above, can only qualify if he wins and then wins race off, atleast against gabbar_dude, also against DOVER if he wins.

    Fastest finish time group G: leckie2786 0:45:36.12

    Group H
    -Noxious-, the groups leader, continues his successful streak of seven wins. Beating their opponent XGCaesar, who is now sitting in fourth place. Arvina upset the matches today, taking their second win and beating second place’s Siredge with a solid time of 45:55.41. Up next, MyDuude beat the groups fastest SevTai, SevTai being incredibly slow on the track today, performing an awful time of 46:57.37. MyDuude moving up into second place with Siredge. Iamnorrinradd has proven themselves against MMeMojito, taking home their third win.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    -Noxious- = Qualified no matter what
    MyDuude = Qualifies if he wins and -Noxious- wins. Race off with Siredge, XGCaesar for second place if he loses and Siredge loses. If he loses and Siredge wins he is out. If he wins and Siredge wins -> Race off with Siredge for second place.
    Siredge = Qualifies if MyDuude loses and he wins. Same as above.
    XGCaesar = Only qualifies if Siredge loses and he wins.

    Fastest finish time group H: SevTai 0:45:42.71

    PS: If any odd result should happen that we did not foresee our apologies :)

    Newbie tournament write-up (thanks again to Lightor for writing this up about 95%, I can take no credit for it)
    after round 8:

    Group A
    BeepBeepBoop, having won yesterdays race and todays race against KONYS in an impressive performance, has taken the lead in group A, being the sole leader now, giving him good chances for qualifying. In the next race AmritTwo unfortunately lost another race, this time against Resurrector00, putting him and his latest opponent in fifth or sixth place, depending on how the race between Nick9633 and KungFuhrer goes, though that result is not in yet.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    BeepBeepBoop: always qualified, elfo has no race left so no one can catch up to him either.
    Elfo: dependant on the results of other, if cnn and Konys (possibly KungFuhrer too) lose their race Elfo qualifies in 2nd place. If one of them wins there will be a race off for 2nd place, this can be a race off of max. Elfo, mcnn, Konys and KungFuhrer depending on the results.
    Mcnn: has to win his race against BeepBeepBoop in order to be able to enter in a race off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people depending on results).
    KONYS: has to win her race against Resurrector00 in order to be able to enter in a race-off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people depending on results).
    KungFuhrer: has to win his round 8 race and his round 9 race in order to be able to enter in a race-off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people)

    Fastest finish time group A & overall: BeepBeepBoop 0:45:20.12

    Group B
    In our first race we got plwslw, who had group B‘s current fastest time, against DrVoid. DrVoid racing a formidable time of 45:48.17, a new best for the group, taking their fourth with and third place in the tournament. Next up was Flid, racing against southbank. Flid was able to bag a win aswell, also gaining his fourth win in this group stage, putting him on third together with DrVoid. In our third race of this group we have Xenos48 against NSFlygirl1966. Xenos proving to be the faster racer today, finally able to grab a second win for themselves in this tournament. Our last match-up is Yeala against ThePlugCasper, Yeala taking a win with just 2.5 seconds ahead, barely taking their fifth win and putting them on first place, together with Leelip.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    Leelip: qualifies if he wins his next race. If Leelip wins her race and Yeala loses, Leelip takes first place. If both Yeala and Leelip win they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Leelip loses her race and Yeala wins her race, then Leelip will end up in race-off for 2nd place against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid. If Leelip and Yeala lose they end up in a race-off against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid for place 1 and 2
    Yeala: qualifies if she wins her next race. If Yeala wins her race and Leelip loses, Yeala takes first place. If both Yeala and Leelip win they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Yeala loses her race and Leelip wins his race, then Yeala will end up in race-off for 2nd place against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid. If Leelip and Yeala lose they end up in a race-off against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid for place 1 and 2
    DrVoid: in order to be able to enter in a race-off, DrVoid has to win his race and Leelip or Yeala have to lose. He then ends up in a race-off for 2nd place. If both Leelip and Yeala lose and he wins, he ends up in a race-off for place 1 and 2.
    Flid: in order to be able to enter in a race-off, Flid has to win his race and Leelip or Yeama have to lose. He tne ends up in a race-off for 2nd place. If both Leelip and Yeala lose and he wins, he ends up in a race-off for place 1 and 2

    Fastest finish time group B: DrVoid 0:45:48.17

    Group C
    Group C has proven today to be quite a close group. JUSTIN, yesterdays leader, has been beaten in their duel with Degtyrev with just 1.04 seconds behind, Degtyrev taking their third win in this group stage. Surprisingly this hasn‘t been the closest race of the day yet. Bt999 has won against their opponent bear1lit by just 0.9 seconds, putting themselves at three wins together with bear1lit and Degtyrev. Next, JayJay7775 emerged victorious against Cayde-6, taking their fifth win and now leading group C together with JUSTIN. Our last race was Themick racing against Bickomad, Themick driving overall a better race and taking their fourth win, sitting on third place now with Bickomad and Cayde-6.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    JayJay7775: qualifies if he wins his race against bear1lit. If Justin loses his race and JayJay7775 wins his race he takes 1st place. If both Justin and JayJay7775 win their race they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If JayJay7775 loses and Justin wins his race, he always ends up in a race-off for 2nd place since Themick has a fillup race (this is possible in this scenario against max 2 others Themick + Bickomad)
    Justin: qualifies if he wins his race against Cayde-6. If both JayJay7775 and Justin win their race they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Justin loses his race and JayJay7775 wins his race, he always ends up in a race-off for 2nd place against at least Themick and Cayde-6, if Bickomad wins his race he gets added to that race-off too.
    Cayde-6: has to win his race against Justin, if he does he always gets a race-off between him, Justin and Themick. If Bickomad should win his race he will get added to that list too.
    Themick: always gets a point due to being matched against fillup, if JayJay7775 or Justin lose he ends up in a race-off (in the oddest possibility it can be a race-off for 1 and 2).
    Bickomad: has to win his race, if then either JayJay7775 or Justin loses he ends up in a race-off.
    Oddest possibility: JayJay7775 loses, Justin loses, Bickomad wins => race-off with 5 people (JayJay7775, Justin, Cayde-6, Themick and Bickomad)

    Fastest finish time group C: JayJay7775 0:45:46.10

    PS: If any odd result should happen that we did not foresee our apologies :)
    If I was running a multi account scam don't you think I'd be doing better in the competition? Although I do think there's something dodgy going on with the top 4 of the group and that they should all be suspended until a full investigation takes place. Should take till the end of the month at least. And I would happily take their place for them while they're not able to race because I'm such a kind person :)

    While that last race did end my participation in this event, I am pleased to say I enjoyed my races and interactions with the others in my group. It was a close run throughout, and I wish both Dromedan and Lugburz well in the next stage! For those moving on, enjoy the event!

    I'm nervous for a race off with Yeala and Leelip. Both of them have beaten me, so I'm hoping I get some luck behind me to progress!

    I just wanted to say thanks too. I hadn't even started racing until I saw there was going to be a tournament banner competition, and thought I'd better enter the actual race too if I was going to enter that. (Needless to say a ~3 racing skill was never going to sweep the field). But I had so much fun and appreciated the opportunity to shoot the breeze with some folk I never would have met otherwise. I'll be back next time - maybe even in the main event. Thanks Prezze and co.

    One of the most important matches of the group,-Noxious- against Siredge, has taken place today. Siredge winning closely with 4.32 seconds to spare. Siredge‘s win puts MyDuude in a tight spot for his duel. They need to win to stay in. Unfortunately that was not the case, their opponent, XGCaesar, winning their race. Thus -Noxious- in first and Siredge in second have qualified, congratulations. Arvina won against MMeMojito, putting MMeMojito alone in last place.

    Qualified: -Noxious-, Siredge

    Still possible to qualify: /

    Fastest finish time group H: SevTai 0:45:42.71


    Today I've taken over the posting since it is a bit late for Prezze (and me!). I apologize if the write-up isn't as thorough today as usual but hopefully still an enjoyable read. If there are any mistake I swear it was my virtual dog!

    Prezze [2121612]

    Newbie tournament write-up (thanks again to Lightor for writing this up about 95%, I can take no credit for it)
    after round 8:

    Group A
    BeepBeepBoop, having won yesterdays race and todays race against KONYS in an impressive performance, has taken the lead in group A, being the sole leader now, giving him good chances for qualifying. In the next race AmritTwo unfortunately lost another race, this time against Resurrector00, putting him and his latest opponent in fifth or sixth place, depending on how the race between Nick9633 and KungFuhrer goes, though that result is not in yet.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    BeepBeepBoop: always qualified, elfo has no race left so no one can catch up to him either.
    Elfo: dependant on the results of other, if cnn and Konys (possibly KungFuhrer too) lose their race Elfo qualifies in 2nd place. If one of them wins there will be a race off for 2nd place, this can be a race off of max. Elfo, mcnn, Konys and KungFuhrer depending on the results.
    Mcnn: has to win his race against BeepBeepBoop in order to be able to enter in a race off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people depending on results).
    KONYS: has to win her race against Resurrector00 in order to be able to enter in a race-off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people depending on results).
    KungFuhrer: has to win his round 8 race and his round 9 race in order to be able to enter in a race-off (race-off can be going from 2-3-4 people)

    Fastest finish time group A & overall: BeepBeepBoop 0:45:20.12

    Group B
    In our first race we got plwslw, who had group B‘s current fastest time, against DrVoid. DrVoid racing a formidable time of 45:48.17, a new best for the group, taking their fourth with and third place in the tournament. Next up was Flid, racing against southbank. Flid was able to bag a win aswell, also gaining his fourth win in this group stage, putting him on third together with DrVoid. In our third race of this group we have Xenos48 against NSFlygirl1966. Xenos proving to be the faster racer today, finally able to grab a second win for themselves in this tournament. Our last match-up is Yeala against ThePlugCasper, Yeala taking a win with just 2.5 seconds ahead, barely taking their fifth win and putting them on first place, together with Leelip.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    Leelip: qualifies if he wins his next race. If Leelip wins her race and Yeala loses, Leelip takes first place. If both Yeala and Leelip win they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Leelip loses her race and Yeala wins her race, then Leelip will end up in race-off for 2nd place against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid. If Leelip and Yeala lose they end up in a race-off against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid for place 1 and 2
    Yeala: qualifies if she wins her next race. If Yeala wins her race and Leelip loses, Yeala takes first place. If both Yeala and Leelip win they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Yeala loses her race and Leelip wins his race, then Yeala will end up in race-off for 2nd place against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid. If Leelip and Yeala lose they end up in a race-off against the winner of DrVoid vs Flid for place 1 and 2
    DrVoid: in order to be able to enter in a race-off, DrVoid has to win his race and Leelip or Yeala have to lose. He then ends up in a race-off for 2nd place. If both Leelip and Yeala lose and he wins, he ends up in a race-off for place 1 and 2.
    Flid: in order to be able to enter in a race-off, Flid has to win his race and Leelip or Yeama have to lose. He tne ends up in a race-off for 2nd place. If both Leelip and Yeala lose and he wins, he ends up in a race-off for place 1 and 2

    Fastest finish time group B: DrVoid 0:45:48.17

    Group C
    Group C has proven today to be quite a close group. JUSTIN, yesterdays leader, has been beaten in their duel with Degtyrev with just 1.04 seconds behind, Degtyrev taking their third win in this group stage. Surprisingly this hasn‘t been the closest race of the day yet. Bt999 has won against their opponent bear1lit by just 0.9 seconds, putting themselves at three wins together with bear1lit and Degtyrev. Next, JayJay7775 emerged victorious against Cayde-6, taking their fifth win and now leading group C together with JUSTIN. Our last race was Themick racing against Bickomad, Themick driving overall a better race and taking their fourth win, sitting on third place now with Bickomad and Cayde-6.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    JayJay7775: qualifies if he wins his race against bear1lit. If Justin loses his race and JayJay7775 wins his race he takes 1st place. If both Justin and JayJay7775 win their race they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If JayJay7775 loses and Justin wins his race, he always ends up in a race-off for 2nd place since Themick has a fillup race (this is possible in this scenario against max 2 others Themick + Bickomad)
    Justin: qualifies if he wins his race against Cayde-6. If both JayJay7775 and Justin win their race they have a race-off for 1st and 2nd place. If Justin loses his race and JayJay7775 wins his race, he always ends up in a race-off for 2nd place against at least Themick and Cayde-6, if Bickomad wins his race he gets added to that race-off too.
    Cayde-6: has to win his race against Justin, if he does he always gets a race-off between him, Justin and Themick. If Bickomad should win his race he will get added to that list too.
    Themick: always gets a point due to being matched against fillup, if JayJay7775 or Justin lose he ends up in a race-off (in the oddest possibility it can be a race-off for 1 and 2).
    Bickomad: has to win his race, if then either JayJay7775 or Justin loses he ends up in a race-off.
    Oddest possibility: JayJay7775 loses, Justin loses, Bickomad wins => race-off with 5 people (JayJay7775, Justin, Cayde-6, Themick and Bickomad)

    Fastest finish time group C: JayJay7775 0:45:46.10

    Group D
    Group D wanted to show how well coordinated they are on their second to last race day, (almost) all winners finishing withing 10 seconds of eachother and all losers aswell. These results are as following, from fastest to slowest winner: 4n4rchist (45:55.79) against Youngcas (46:35.15), ThunderDrak (46:02.15) against illusionate(46:35.50), BillHimself (46:04.09) against RawRexHead (46:28.30) and CJBWRC (46:06.34) against Rosierosie (46:38.03). Is this just a huge coincidence, coordination or another one of these big multi scandal theories (looking at you CJBWRC)? We will see. The current podium in group D looks like the following: ThunderDrak - first place, BillHimself - second place, 4n4rchist & RawRexHead - third place.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    ThunderDrak = If he wins he is qualified. If he loses and BillHimself wins, its race off for first and second.
    BillHimself = If he wins and ThunderDrak wins he is qualified as second. If He wins and ThunderDrak loses its race off for first and second. If he loses he faces the winner from 4n4rchist vs RawRexHead and its race off for second.
    4n4rchist = Can only qualify if he wins against RawRexHead and BillHimself loses. Then they need to win the race off for second.
    RawRexHead = Same as 4n4rchist.

    Fastest finish time group D: Illusionate 0:45:50.71

    Group E
    SpeedSkateR is still the leader of group E. In the race Pacoano versus SleepIsForWeak, SleepIsForWeak was able to drive a better time, taking their third win of the groupstage. Sarm took their fourth win, beating Hanging_Judge by 7.29 seconds. The results for nomoretime & SpeedSkateR and overDos3 & omcatmeowbuddy are not in yet.

    A lot of results missing which would make the analysis a bit too extensive.
    Most likely:
    1st Place: SpeedSkateR
    2nd Place: overDos3 or decided through race off

    Fastest finish time group E: SpeedSkateR 0:45:55.84

    Group F
    Our first race in group F was an exciting one. The groups leader, mattynob, driving against the groups fastest, aaronachnid. mattynob drove an incredible race, missing aaronachnid’s best time by just 0.15 seconds. Meanwhile aaronachnid had a rough time on the track today, being over a minute slower than his opponent, mattynob. With this mattynob extended his lead in the group, certainly an important win for him and a terrible loss for aaronachnid, whose chances of qualifying drastically sank. mathuaerknedam won their race against Mad_Ninja with a very good time aswell, driving a 45:47.49 and taking their fourth win. In our next duel Jorgen found himself facing Geeklord, both participants driving a good race but ultimately Jorgen had the better race, Jorgen taking their third win of the tournament. At the time of writing, WarFlamezzz and Bilbosaggings’ results are not in yet.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    mattynob = Qualified, no matter what
    Geeklord = Qualifies if he wins and mathuaerknedam and Bilbosaggings lose. If he wins and mathuaerknedam and/or Bilbosaggings win all winners race off for second.
    mathuaerknedam = Same as with Geeklord.
    aaronachnid = Through Oddest Possibility.
    Bilbosaggings = Same as Geeklord.
    MkeMalta = Through Oddest Possibility.
    Jorgen = Through Oddest Possibility.
    Oddest possibility = Bilbosaggings loses against mattynob, mathuaerknedam loses and Geeklord loses -> Race off for second place with 6 people.

    Fastest finish time group F: aaronachnid 0:45:34.32

    Group G
    DrClarkus has taken home another win, winning against dev_is_ded and extending his lead towards the rest of the group. Alyssa also won their race, their opponent, DaigleTheBagel, seemingly having a bad day, driving a time of 47:00.97, over a minute slower than Alyssa. leckie2786, the currently fastest of the group, won against the past leader gabbar_dude, putting gabbar_dude in second place and causing him to lose his lead. At the time of writing, the result of DOVER and TheTyrantSmew are not in yet.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    DrClarkus = Qualified, no matter what
    gabbar_dude = Qualifies if DOVER and leckie2786 lose their races. Otherwise race off with any of those two that wins.
    DOVER = Can only qualify if he wins, he then ends up in a race off with atleast gabbar_dude and maybe leckie2786 if he wins. Needs to win that to qualify.
    leckie2786 = Same as above, can only qualify if he wins and then wins race off, atleast against gabbar_dude, also against DOVER if he wins.

    Fastest finish time group G: leckie2786 0:45:36.12

    Group H
    -Noxious-, the groups leader, continues his successful streak of seven wins. Beating their opponent XGCaesar, who is now sitting in fourth place. Arvina upset the matches today, taking their second win and beating second place’s Siredge with a solid time of 45:55.41. Up next, MyDuude beat the groups fastest SevTai, SevTai being incredibly slow on the track today, performing an awful time of 46:57.37. MyDuude moving up into second place with Siredge. Iamnorrinradd has proven themselves against MMeMojito, taking home their third win.

    Now what does this imply for the possibilities towards qualification with 1 race to go:
    -Noxious- = Qualified no matter what
    MyDuude = Qualifies if he wins and -Noxious- wins. Race off with Siredge, XGCaesar for second place if he loses and Siredge loses. If he loses and Siredge wins he is out. If he wins and Siredge wins -> Race off with Siredge for second place.
    Siredge = Qualifies if MyDuude loses and he wins. Same as above.
    XGCaesar = Only qualifies if Siredge loses and he wins.

    Fastest finish time group H: SevTai 0:45:42.71

    PS: If any odd result should happen that we did not foresee our apologies :)

    If I was running a multi account scam don't you think I'd be doing better in the competition? Although I do think there's something dodgy going on with the top 4 of the group and that they should all be suspended until a full investigation takes place. Should take till the end of the month at least. And I would happily take their place for them while they're not able to race because I'm such a kind person :)
    Told everyone that something dodgy was going on :P Unfortunately, my offer of taking ThunderDraks place in the competition was outvoted by the other stewards... Good luck to everyone who is still in the newbie tournament. I had fun racing with you all and I look forward to progressing to main with some of you next time :)
