This round of MotoSL has taken us to the beautiful Racers Island sim , where Eddie Mathieson runs several racings leagues on superb race tracks... stacked 7 high .
The story of this round is unfortunately one i wasnt able to witness personally cause i was racing myself , but the Group A race started and stayed for awhile a 3 bike dogfight between Ram Pharoah, Brave Ashbourne and Moto Ware . Ram hung on untill lap 7 where he was overtaken by Brave , with Moto still in striking distance if either should fall .
Ram retook the lead lap 10, but Brave again got ahead lap 11 and hung on despite Ram being right on his heels for the final laps . Big congrats to a hard working racer that deserves this win on his home turf .
Group B race was won by Ram Pharoah who had a steady hand today, he needed it with last races winner Silk Bamboo hoping for any kind of voodoo to help Ram fall, but he did not and prevailed , moving onto the Group A race.
Another great story of the day was the Group C race , where long time racing vet Nella Boccara
jumped out after Holden Saunders faltered lap 4 . Nella proceded to lead the rest of the race and win .
Group D was a 2 bike faceoff between Bikey Bekkers and Hakuna Albatross, Bikey prevailed and moved on to the Group C race. Next race is saturday January 31st at Mooz on the full layout. Its been a great season , in the closing races we are seeing new stars like Mooly Fitzgerald, Brave Ashbourne and Stang Voom staking their claims, and seasoned vets still riding solid.
Annie Gufler has the season championship sewn up going into the final round , Annie will become the 4th MotoSL champion in 4 seasons , with the 2nd all time number of MotoSL wins in 1 season and overall . Season 1 champion Stillywack Stillman, still holds records of most win in single season and overall .
Archer has also wrapped up the team championship, our first MotoSL team championship and 3rd overall in RaceSL . But this season has showed that there is several good teams ready to take it next season , including Bikersites.com, AM Pro, Racers Island and ZT Racing .
Last wednesday was also race 2 of the G1-GP rfactor season , i managed to get another win, despite a late race kiss with the wall . Rattra scored his 2nd straight, 2nd place.. and Jafo came in 3rd.
So far as the season is shaping up .. I think Sulla is so far in a class byherself , and once she can stay the course , she will start winning. Rattra , Yuriko and Suzy are the steady crew, placing high in the 2 races , payoff for their steady racing.
Jafo and Suku are both talented enough that once they can keep all 4 pointing forward they will finish high. Caz is working hard to join any of the above categories, plus we will have new drivers Kiboe Munro and Eddie Mathieson joining us in upcomign races, making it a field of up to 10 ...Race 3, is 18 laps at Silverstone wednesday jan 28th .

Although i was able to lead all 22 laps cleanly, the race was filled with several close battles, including early on between Ratta and Yuriko in a battle for 2nd , Rattra was able to show patience, and got by after Yuriko spun out .
