TM Tour II draws to a close written by Sabre0001, 2008-10-09 22:53 CEST (25 comments)

Another competitive and enjoyable edition of the Trackmania Tour draws to a close. Congratulations to UKFC HotSWAT who took the competition by storm, repeating Spe64's performance and racking up nine wins.

The line-up for this edition featured many new faces and it is hoped that this will continue in future tournaments and that people come back for more!

Results throughout the field were quite competitive and positions were not guaranteed. Once again, racers were able to have local battles as well as challenging for the title (at least at the start when HotSWAT was within touching distance!)

An image of the results will be available soon...

Recap written by Sabre0001, 2008-09-25 23:05 CEST (24 comments)

And that ends the first edition of the TrackMANIA-Tour and overall it seemed to be quite a successful run! In a server dominated by the Irish, a French flag put them to shame. Spe64 took the championship with two rounds to spare (though at one point it looked like it would be a lot sooner!). In total Spe racked up an impressive 9 wins!

However, there were close battles throughout the field and I'm sure some rivalries were made that will carry on into future editions.

Now some side trivia: If there was also a constructors battle, team IRIS would also have taken this home (with one driver) over raceFACE (with two drivers) 114-107!

Results are available in image format here [img220.imageshack.us]

Thanks to all who took part. Congratulations to Spe64. Thanks also to all those involved in setting everything up especially PPC.
