Default Battle wins Montpellier

Looks like Batlle chalked up another one to his stellar year. That boy is winning or in the hunt in every race he;s been in lately! Looks like the new RC8 fell out early as well. Poor Bloomfield let himself run out of fuel on the last lap it appears. Can't wait to see the vid once it's up!

Batlle is really proving the MBX7 is a force to be reckoned with, looks like the poor JQ guys never made the A Main, or just bothered not to show up and saved themselves the embarrassment.

wow nice sportsmanship by Batlle. But Bloomfield had the faster car. Man, that feeling of running out of gas right before the finish line... everything inside your head turns white at the moment

Yup, I agree, he easily could've walked away from the pack there for sure. I'd say that sportsmanship act didn't go unnoticed.

Default Nice

Go Mugen Seki. Oh BTW is that not the most annoying announcer of all time. He does quite a few races too. He really needs to shut it.

So what is the format with Euro races? A Semi, B Semi, One guy is TQ but another is "on the pole?"

I must be missing something obvious to everyone else.

was a shade disappointed to not see Bloomers give him the same courtesy a couple corners later. But like you said, he was charging, and once he got around, he was gone.

Nuts how close he was to finish when he ran out of fuel. Man...

How did he end up second? Was he that far ahead of Savoya that he fueled up and went back up to finish the lap?

Yes, A semi, B semi.
The one with TQ is the fastest one from the qualifiers. He will start on spot 1 in the A semi final.
The guy that was the fastest in the semi's, has the pole for the final.

Yea that was a lil surprising but it worked out for Batlle, I was glad to see him take the win and it has nothing to do with me running Moogs either.

Aside from TQ, how are the A and B semis lined up?

Who was pole in B semi and who was second an A semi?
