FERRARI F2004 – Monza, Italy (Weekly)
How to end a season in ̶s̶t̶y̶l̶e̶ carnage. Such a fast car at Monza shows us some great races, and also bad starts. Of course, Mostafa Moradi had to win every single race. On Friday, Simon Speth secured his championship with another 2nd place, just 0.5 seconds in front of Filippo Di Maggio. The next day, some of the alien drivers decided not to race, and Daniel Gamblin managed to win in front of Jakub Szymanski and Iker Maraver.

In 2nd place Mostafa Moradi, who got a 102 in every week he joined (5 out of 6). 3rd Garo Sarafian, who got a bad 48 points race. 4th Lucas Biberacher, with 502 points. 5th there’s Daniel Gamblin.
SKODA OCTAVIA CUP – Silesia Trash, Poland (Daily)
The season started with some races similar to the Vietnam F1 GP. They didn’t happen. The first race was at 17.00 GMT, but just two drivers managed to join. Matteo Venuti won it, managing to get the final 612. But, between grid glitches, not counted laps, and other ridicolous bugs, the fight for the win of the championship (likely Andrea Giusto and Gianluca Roncaglia) was on fire. In the 4Fun team, the situation was really intense, with some processions at Lourdes and Medjugorje (even three times per day), and Giusto was struggling to find his final 102. Then, on Saturday evening, Giusto won the race. With it, he secured his 2nd championship, and a full-Italian podium. Skoda Italian Cup intensifies.
