TORA News 18.12.12






Hello and Welcome fellow TORA racing drivers.

“Christmas is a race to see which gives out first - your money or your feet” or in TORA’s case “Christmas is a race to see which gives up first – Your controller / Wheel or your Internet connection”

Sunday the 16th of November witnessed this year’s final Round of the MSA GT Championship from the world famous infield Circuit at the “Brickyard” Indy Speedway in downtown Indianapolis.

With 56 drivers, 34 teams, 13 manufactures & 14 different models & TPR B0x & CQR Magic fighting for championship honours we were in for a real brickyard classic.

To win the GT Omega race seat TPR B0x had to Qualify in lobby A and finish no lower than 14th in race 1 to secure the top spot in the championship.

Box and Magic had done enough at the end of the 1st Qualifying session to take the fight into the first race, however before the two championship contenders could lock wheels in battle the super pole was to play its part in the final outcome.

Superpole went to TPR B0x ahead of new-to-TORA, but veteran driver VVV Amarth in the Veni Vidi Vici McLaren MP4-12C, with CQR HABURi in the CQR Bulldogs Jaguar XKR RSR in 3rd, ahead of CQR MAGiC who qualifyed 4th.

As the 56 GT cars rolled out onto the famous oval straight the brickyard rumbled to life, teams managers, spectators and commentators looked forward to what would be an incredible clash of Forza Motorsports 4's top drivers.

To witness the incredible battle in Race 1 and Race 2 which decided this year’s championship you can re-watch all of the live recorded action on TORA TV - http://www.livestream.com/toralive/video?clipId=pla_16f8c476-9ab7-4ed0-b59b-5a148dfc7c55&utm_source=lslibrary&utm_medium=ui-thumb

A huge congratulants to TPR B0x who secured 1st place in the Drivers’ Championship.

CQR Bulldogs took a fantastic and well-deserved Teams' Championship for which CQR have now produced a fantastic season review article - http://forums.theonlineracingassociation.com/t8960-cqr-tora-in-2012#175766 – CQR Season in Review

The Privateers' title also went to TPR B0x.

A huge thanks must go to all competitors that took part in this year’s championship (197 scoring drivers!!), and a huge personal thanks to Simon, Adrian & Louis for the hard work behind the scenes for TORA TV.

We now turn our attention to next year’s GT World Championship. For the latest championship info you can go to http://forums.theonlineracingassociation.com/f265-forum.
