Hello race fans!

It’s been a while since Motorato Ware won season2 and we haven’t been sleeping, well not much.

RaceSL has been hard at work developing the first season of ForumlaSL car racing. We want to continue to bring the best in GP racing to SL. The FormulaSL season kicks off in under two weeks. MotoSL will begin shortly after. The two race events will not have conflicting race times. It will be very possible for someone to race in both.

Season 3 of MotoSL will feature many new things as it is our tradition between series to step things up. We are planning new HUDs for the bikes as well as a redesign of the motor, traction and dynamics of the bikes. We are not sure yet, but we are thinking about using the Hawk 10R model again for season 3. There is an outside chance that we will have a new model to race this season.

RaceSL.com is our new mothership on the web. MotoSL doesn’t have a spot there currently, but season 3 will all be covered at RaceSL.com instead of wordpress, which will provide us with greater freedom and range of possibilities for our web coverage.

If you are interested in the FormulaSL series then look up the FormulaSL group and join for event notices. We have car rezzers at all the tracks for testing.

One more note, RaceSL has aquired yet another private island to be used as a full size GP race track. We are waiting to take delivery of this Sim. Soon as a track is up I’ll post it’s location to RaceSL.com

RaceSL.com , the new home for MotoSL and FormulaSL.

Race Report

Hollie Wood took the win at the first ever Cal Sportbike Corsa Classic today. Many people came out to welcome calsportbike.com to SL and to try to win the 10,000+ that Owner Sage Barbosa put on the line.

We had 8 action packed heat races with the winners advancing to the final.

The final race had 8 of the days best riders facing off in windy conditions. Hollie and Motorato Ware traded the lead with Moto starting to pull away when she lost the front end in a terrible crash. Moto was able to recover and work her way back to finish 3rd. Meanwhile Hollie streaked past the line to take first dragging her MotoSL teammate Mara Kohl right behind her for second place on the day.

Many new privateers came out to mix it up with some top level GP riders for some realy strong results. Tenaki Kupferber took 4th over all with Ice Powell right behind. Lacie Voss who rode some races for the MotoSL team winning Red Wings last season had a good race for 6th over all. Bike Racer who finished 3rd over all last season had a little trouble with traffic to take 7th in todays race. Kiri Hua had a strong first event to make it to the main event for 8th best of the day.

Congratulations and thanks to all the riders for making today such fun. Thanks to Cal-Sportbikes for hosting this event at Snowpeach.
