The start of a new season of ILRGT brought us an exciting opening race but with familiar faces still leading the way at the front of the grid.

Jamie-995 led home the field after a comfortable race ahead of his close rival from season 2 itzFrisky_Cj who enjoyed some intense battles for 2nd from the likes of Wommeh395, MrCosta96, and MichaelDavis93.

The first part of the race saw a train develop in the battle for 2nd position with all of the top 4 cars chopping and changing position trying to gain the upper hand. MrCosta96 fell down the order early on in the race but managed to battle his way back to be in contention with the front runners.

After the first pit stop Wommeh395 lost P2 to itzFrisky_Cj and P3 to MichaelDavis after he had a spin after taking too much of the unforgiving kerbs around the Kyoto Park circuit. The battle for P2 intensified when itzFrisky_Cj and MichaelDavis had slight contact which sent Mike

onto the grass on lap 17 out of the chicane. After the second round of pit stops the battle then continued for P2 between itzFrisky_Cj, MichaelDavis93 and MrCosta96 until lap 25 when the kerbs caught there next victim as MichaelDavis93 took too much into the penultimate corner and spun off into the wall handing P3 to MrCosta96.

While reigning ILRGT champion Jamie-995 cruised home to his first victory of the season we had a four way battle for P2 going into the final laps before Wommeh395 crashed out into the barrier and MichaelDavis93 ran onto the grass allowing itzFrisky_Cj and MrCosta96 to take the final podium positions.

Meanwhile further down the field there was some hard battling between MKBorn200 0 and jluke11 for 6th position and between and Mr Crumpet for P12.
