Jay chose the R3 729 Ford Fusion Stock Car at the reverse version of Benchmark Test Track's Layout C:
"I have chosen this because I believe it will be a fantastic, closely fought out battle between all drivers in both lobbies. The track choice is because as as a former short oval racer, I wanted to re-enact my experience. Hopefully it will give our fellow racers a great experience too. It also gives racers the opportunity to take several different racing lines and approaches in overtaking. Whilst one driver could decide to take a tighter line through the corners, another could decide to take a wider line. Both have their huge gains and losses when it comes down to the straights. In the end however, both approaches are neither right or wrong and are very close in comparison.

The reason why the track is in reverse, is because in Autograss racing we go anti-clockwise around the circuit as appose to most other oval motorsports (mainly in the states), they go clockwise.

The car choice was a tough choice between two cars. One was of course the chosen car (#5 Ford racing Fusion), the other was the Radical. Reason being that my race car had a 1000cc bike engine for its powerhorse (a Kawasaki ZX10 to be exact). As the Radical is also bike powered, I thought this would be the ideal choice. However I thought that the #5 Ford Racing Fusion (Nascar) would bring the field in a lot closer, making the racing more enjoyable."

PJ chose the B 454 BMW 135i Coupé at the Nurburgring's Short Layout:
"I was looking for a car that was relatively easy to drive, and could make for good racing. The 135i is nimble yet sturdy, sophisticated yet enjoyable, fast yet drivable. The Nurburing GP circuit brings out the best in the car and should prove to be an enjoyable race for drivers of all skill levels."

Dan took the lead at the start and went on to a comfortable win and fastest lap
PJ eyes up the competition...
..and takes 5 of them at once!
These 4 would battle hard all race.
Goteki House weren't going to let Smifaye through!
Ratonedge took a bollard to the ATTK
Icthyes benefited when the ATTKs took an ATTK to the ATTK
Turn 1 on the 1st lap of the Nurburgring GP track always got a bit interesting

PJ got off to a good start, here battling with JayCoops for 2nd.
Wild Smifaye appears! Smifaye used "Lag Attack"!
Dan didn't like the Furai and could only manage 8th
Goteki House finished nose-to-tail again.
Icthyes started the race eighth...
...but left Turn 1 first!
A close finish denied by a mistake from Don Mateo
Furai-ous styles
Covamalia and Icthyes nip up the inside of a spinning Scott
