They feature a lot of Halo racing content with first looks on famous forgers like Milk Man. You can also find a bit of non-Halo content on this channel like Minecraft. Check it out breh!
This week’s race recap will be slightly different to the two previous issues because of lack of time inbetween the two journalists to give you your pleasure. Please don’t hit us! Let’s get on with some hawt action!
This week our Grand Prix division raced on the unique Sidewinder GP built by PSYCHOSERAPH86. This track features several off-cambered turns which can make and break a race. Many projected this race to be “easy” but the track proved to have a skill gap with drivers getting lapped. Knowing how to pass was key in this week’s GP races.
Grand Prix 1:
xNJD1x is on a reign of terror and top drivers in his division are determined to break his streak. Sidewinder, a track where qualifying is important, proved to be the chance for people to end this.
Harkler came out with an early lead ahead of everybody with Midget, Master and Real Deal behind. NJD gets flipped at the start of the race and has to work his way back to the front. Real Deal experienced some lag problems and had a horrible racing week. Meanwhile after a dirty block on NJD, Harkler maintains his lead. This race proved to be eventful with midget and master having quiet but good races. Final Results:
5. Snake uG
6. SOG Havok
7. BxA Real Deal D
NJD still holds a comfortable lead in this division but anything can still happen!
Grand Prix 2:
This week we had another race covered on the OutlawRacingLive YouTube Channel by DarkStar. Check it out yo!
Grand Prix European:
The European gang tried to stop the Global Racing dominance in this divison as elite mkb had a hot start. Luke Dawson and gogetarulez both had bad starts and had to work back up for their positions, with Luke all the way in last after an accident. Gogetarulez worked his way up with several battles which he eventually won. After a hot start, elite mkb fell off to fourth also due to a incident between him and gogeta. Elpmet held off Luke Dawson for second to get higher up on the standings. The new driver in this division, Cam2602, had a battle troughout with TG Unggoy but the inexperience gave Unggoy the position. Final Results:
4. elite mkb
5. ITZz RhYSs X98
8. TG Unggoy
This week the two motocross divisions raced on Palm Stadium SX by PANCAKEMUFFIN. Like the GP divisions, many thought this track would be too easy and would not make for good racing, but the races (well at least one of them) were epic!
Pancake is coming into this race on a two win streak and is looking to make it three, but the Unknowns aren’t gonna make it easy for him.
Lag issues and other problems proved to be too much for XxPackers1996xX and xUnknownGamingx and ended their races early. Pancake got the holeshot and tried to check out, but UnknownRacing32 was close behind and trying to make a charge. Zakvader and Yumi Brendan had a super intense battle the whole race and they even managed to catch up to Racing who stopped on the track to text his girlfriend! Final Results:
4. Yumi Brendan
Coming off of his first win, H3R0 356 is looking to create some momentum in this division. Other winners like XreignZ and CRF150R REBEL are hungry too.
Lapped drivers seemed to plague this race. H3R0 got a good lead, but ReignZ was looking to chase him down. His race was almost screwed when a lapped rider would't get out of the way, but he managed to keep his second place. TheOffice1808 finishes third once again. He's finished there every single race this season! Talk about consistent! Final Results:
1st. H3R0 365
4th. CRF150R REBEL
5th. revengeracer v2
This week the ORL’s Mixed Terrain divisions raced on Quasi Superspeedway, a horrible track made by some randy scrandy. Many of you veterans know this track as the popular Quarry Superspeedway back in Reach. The racing was compact and intense and made for some great battles!
Mixed Terrain 1:
This was a very good race! Coming off his first win ever, AMG Carbone is looking to make a name for himself, but the likes of romansoldier35 and Azza Lion x (AKA: l Prime xD l) aren’t gonna make it easy for him.
Lag problems screwed LHRMJxRenegadeX's race over. Carbone and Lion ran away from the pack and had an epic battle! Romansoldier35 solidified himself on second with the rest of the pack chasing. PSYCHOSERAPH86 failed the jump and got put way back in the pack. Not much more happened after that, but it was still a fun race to watch! Final Results:
1. AMG Carbone
2. Azza Lion x
5. Stickyman Racer
Mixed Terrain 2:
This eventful race took place on a nice Saturday evening, full of wrecks. Reigning champ, I KC KONGO I, had a bad first turn and fell back in the pack but eventually worked his way back to the front. Meanwhile Simple Eric had a great start and eventually checked out. Armada and Monster battled for second which allowed Simple Eric to run away. Near the end of the race, teammates KC KONGO and Darkstar got into a scruff and Darkstar wrecked into 7th place. Final Results:
1. Simple Eric
3. eTs MONST3R
4. I KC KONGO I
7. DARKSTAR o72
DNF. GOLDLINER 49NER
Armada now holds a 10 point lead, but Simple Eric has only just joined into this division!
That does it for this week's ORL Weekly, the official news letter of Outlaw Racing! Get prepared for another epic week of racing and if you miss any of it, check back in next week for all your latest news and race coverage!
