Really hoping that Michael forgets to edit his time :whistling: :haha: ;)
I see this as a 'hanging chad' type of event.

Michael has seemingly edited his post. However, there is clear evidence of his initial intention as well.

I think The Fastlane Supreme Court will have to step in and invalidate the edit. 4:42:112 stands!
What has Chad done to deserve hanging? :omg:

Sorry, you might have your supporters, and for decades to come people might say your victory was stolen. But after less than carefully reviewing things, we're awarding the entire 2023 season to @George Walker Bush!

So Max does a 1:23.445 which by my reckoning gives the biscuits to @Merkel Weiner for the umpteenth time this year.
Another rather splendid guess, and it seems congratulations and praise are in order. AGAIN.

Seriously Michael, well done. :drunk: :oimate: :mates: :flag: :flag: :woo: You didnt have to rub it in quite so emphatically!


(Unlike Michael whose edit this week was pretty handy, I am back to my usual tricks of taking what would have been a lot closer to the pole time to something I might not even trouble the scorers with. :tearful: )

I actually thought that Erwin might have been on the money after FP3.

It's been super fun all year playing this game, and I'm extremely proud to have prevailed in this ultra-competitive season! I set myself three goals to accomplish this year, and with this race I ticked off the last two: score my tenth individual career win, and take the accuracy championship together with points championship! Hurray! :woo: :woo: :woo: :flag:

No, seriously for a moment, well done :thumbsup: Dont expect such an easy run next year. My resolution for 2024 will be to not be so awful at GTP.

Thanks to all others that took part and made it such a jolly little comp. You are all a competitive bunch, and unfortunately mostly better than me at it. But its th taking part thats fun..... the results are secondary. (Jeez I typed that last bit with my fingers crossed to cover my bullshit :haha:)

First of all, HUGE thanks to @XcraigX for all your work on running this game for us. It's a task and a half I know, especially with so many races, but you never let us down. You're superstar :bow: :thumbsup: :drunk: :mates: :oimate:


@Michael Ferner Congratulations on your wins. You were better than the rest of us and you deserved it. :bow: :woo: :twothumbs:

Second points wise and on the podium for the accuracy isn't too bad I suppose, but be warned, I plan to bring my A game in 2024 and get the titles back again if I possibly can :flag:

Have a great off season all, see you back here in March to start this all over again. It's been a lot of fun playing against you all and I look forward to hopefully doing it again.
