Scores are divided first by class, then by the four brackets (professional, amateur, rookie, and team). The value in [brackets] indicates their current average percentage score gain during the season, and a value of 15.00 or higher is required to remain in the professional group. The symbol next to the bracket indicates whether the individual has recently gained a position (↑) in the standings, lost a position (↓), or their position remains unchanged (•). The racer's name will be followed by their team ticker in brackets.

[1/12] Derelik
The first race of the season took place in the Derelik region, under the sovereignty of the Ammatar Mandate. Although tracks have the potential to traverse neighboring regions of space, this event remained within the boundaries of the region. Beginning in Sasta, the track looped around to the lawless hemisphere of the region almost immediately, and returned three jumps over in Asghatil. The racers were presented with three splits in this event, and a couple decoy containers to keep them on their toes. Sansha's Nation activity was abundant in this region, harassing the racers at the asteroid belts and contributing some chaos to the event.

The Track
START: Sasta VI - Moon 3 - Ammatar Fleet Assembly Plant
1A+B. Ubtes VIII - Asteroid Belt 1
2A. Kenobanala - Fort Kumar ( Beacon )
2B. Bimener IV - Asteroid Belt 1
3. Khabi - 7Q-8Z2 Stargate
4. Sharir - Star
5. Abha - Planet IX
6. Abha - Planet IX*
7. Arena V - Asteroid Belt 1
8. Dysa II - Customs Office*
9A+B. Dysa V - Asteroid Belt 2
10A. Asilem - Planet III
10B. Kehrara - Star
11. Uzistoon VII - Asteroid Belt 2
12. Onsooh I - Customs Office
13. Camal - Jaymass Stargate
14A+B. Faspera VIII - Asteroid Belt 1
15A. Nieril - Star
15B. Bekirdod IV - Moon 1
END: Asghatil IX - Moon 3 - DED Assembly Plant

Individual waypoint times can be found here.

Frigates:
1 NeonFolf [VRT] - Firetail (1:06:23)
DSQ Irongut - Daredevil (1:01:29)
DNF Janaas [DSR] - Atron (n/a)

Losses:
[Ubtes] Janaas [DSR] Atron x1 (Sansha's Nation)

The frigate class was quite an upset this event, as racing veteran Irongut seemed poised to capture the first place prize at the end of the event. Analysis of the waypoint containers revealed a missing point, disqualifying him from his victory, enabling Venture Racing Team's NeonFolf to claim first place. First-time racer and Dragonstar Re-Awakened pilot Janaas dropped out of the race early after a loss to Sansha pirates at the first waypoint, but appeared in high spirits despite the incident.

Interceptors:
1 Takashi Kurosawa [VRT] - Malediction (0:56:45)
2 Rawr Cristina [DRT] - Raptor (0:58:03)
3 Searaph [DSR] - Malediction (0:59:03)
4 Kayleigh Jamieson [DSR] - Ares (0:59:47)
5 Graelyn [VRT] - Crusader (1:01:00)
6 Darina Rea [DRT] - Crusader (1:13:43)
DSQ Spyra Gyra [DRT] - Malediction (0:58:45)

The interceptor class has always been the most competitive category to race in, and yesterday's event was no exception. Venture Racing Team captain Takashi Kurosawa displayed a championship performance after two years, leading the pack and finishing almost two minutes ahead of his opponents. DRT's deadly trio were right on his trail, but despite some discrepancies only Rawr Cristina was left to claim second place. Hot on her trail was Dragonstar Re-Awakened's newest addition to the team and longtime vet, Searaph, who displayed a commanding performance and earned third place. Dragonstar team captain Kayleigh Jamieson edged into fourth place and just ahead of Venture Racing Team's newest rookie and Amarrian Cardinal, Graelyn.

Assault Frigates:
1 Koronakesh [VRT] - Wolf (1:01:49)
2 Saikoyu [VRT] - Ishkur (1:02:42)
3 Nicoletta Mithra [SC] - Retribution (1:34:47)

Venture Racing Team brought a significant presence to the Assault Frigate category, with both Koronakesh and Saikoyu against Scuderia Caille's rookie pilot, Nicoletta Mithra. While Venture displayed tremendous teamwork and a professional performance, Mithra's courage on the track and the encouragement of her captain Quintrala ensured a placement for both her and the team.

The season scores are available here. We're looking forward to seeing everyone on the track next week as we head out to Placid!

[2/12] Overview: Placid
The season's second event began in the Placid region at one of it's busier high security trade hubs in the Stacmon system. The racers were encouraged along a straight path to Vestouve, and were then given the option of traversing Syndicate space or doubling back an additional five jumps through low security space to reach the next point in Oulley. A majority of pilots chose the dangerous route and only one individual didn't make it through. The racers were then split up for six waypoints through Black Rise, The Citadel, and finally met up in Lonetrek for the finish line.

The Track
START: Stacmon VI - Moon 1 - Freedom Extension Storage
1. Aunsou III - Asteroid Belt 1
2. Aulbres I - Customs Office
3. Vestouve - Star

Individual waypoint times can be found here.

Frigates:
1 demon flir [SC] - Firetail (1:10:12)
2 NeonFolf [VRT] - Daredevil (1:14:47 [5min pen.])
DSQ Kira Macha [SC] - Firetail (1:14:57 [5min pen.])

The frigate class saw the return of Scuderia Caille's top frigate pilot to the track, demon flir. Alongside his rookie teammate and first-time competitor Kira Macha, also racing for Caille, Venture found itself in the unusual position of being a minority in this class. Despite NeonFolf's verbal challenges, and what appeared to be a first place finish, a missed waypoint cost him dearly allowing demon to claim first place.

Interceptors:
1 Rawr Cristina [DRT] - Raptor (1:05:59)
2 Takashi Kurosawa [VRT] - Malediction (1:07:28)
3 Searaph [DSR] - Malediction (1:08:39)
4 Kayleigh Jamieson [DSR] - Ares (1:09:09)
5 Darina Rea [DRT] - Crusader (1:11:49 [5min pen.])
6 Graelyn [VRT] - Malediction (1:14:33 [5min pen.])
DSQ Spyra Gyra [DRT] - Malediction (1:08:28)
DNF Ice Brodie - Claw (n/a [15min pen.])

Losses:
[8V-SJJ] Ice Brodie - Claw x1 (Capsuleer - Vexor Navy Issue)

In what appeared to be a rare upset in the interceptor category, team DRT returned from the last week's upset even more aggressive than before. Venture's team captain Takashi Kurosawa took the longer route early in the race, avoiding lawless space and costing him valuable time that allowed DRT's terrible trio, Rawr Cristina, Darina Rea, and Spyra Gryra to finish ahead of him. However, due to missed waypoints only Cristina managed to place higher. Dragonstar ReAwakened managed to fill the gap inbetween, picking up third and fourth place, while the Cardinal finished just behind Darina. Ice Brodie's first event was marked with a DNF due to the loss of their ship in 0.0 space.

Assault Frigates:
1 Nicoletta Mithra [SC] - Retribution (1:10:26)

Surprisingly, Nicoletta Mithra was left uncontested this event and finished with the frigates in good time. Scuderia and Ms. Mithra will both enjoy an early lead thanks to Placid.

The season scores are available here. We're looking forward to seeing everyone on the track next week as we head out to Domain!

I would like to thank Gyra and all the sponsors for bringing this back. It's nice to be able to relax and have something to look forward to every week.

There's still plenty of room for new racers, particularly in the non-interceptor categories, and it's still very early in the season, so a lot of opportunities left for new and experienced racers alike to win something. You like winning, don't you?

[3/12] Overview: Domain
The third race of the season began in Domain, seat of the imperial homeworld and the heart of the Amarrian Empire. The early position sent the racers toward the border to Providence, looping back and passing through Tash Murkon before circling back to Domain. Fifty-four jumps in distance, the track finally ended in Sinq Laison, with one small split and an excess of decoy containers. Sansha's minions were the primary interlopers at the asteroid belts during this event but didn't manage to inflict any damage.

The Track
START: Sarum Prime VI - Moon 7 - Sarum Family Assembly Plant
1. Kheram - Planet V
2. Mamet IV - Asteroid Belt 10
3*. Misaba I - Customs Office
4. Valmu - Star

Frigates:
1 demon flir [SC] - Firetail (1:10:39)
2 NeonFolf [VRT] - Daredevil (1:15:35)
3 Miranda Ricsko [VRT] - Rifter (1:17:06)

In the second event since his return, demon flir has managed to secure another victory allowing both he and Scuderia Caille to close the gap between NeonFolf and Venture Racing Team. Both Neon and his rookie wingmate Miranda Ricsko kept the pressure on demon, but in the end couldn't overtake him.

Interceptors:
1 Rawr Cristina [DRT] - Raptor (1:07:19)
2 Searaph [DSR] - Malediction (1:08:29)
3 Darina Rea [DRT] - Crusader (1:09:07)

With the absence of both Kayleigh Jamieson and Takashi Kurosawa, the interceptor class was dominated by DRT duo Rawr Cristina and Darina Rea. With only Searaph to oppose them, the Dragonstar pilot managed to sandwich himself between the pair to secure second place. As a result, DRT and Rawr Cristina are holding the lead position in this class, but will they be able to fend off Venture Racing and Dragonstar?

Assault Frigates:
1 Saikoyu [VRT] - Ishkur (1:16:52)
2 Koronakesh [VRT] - Wolf (1:17:00)
DSQ Nicoletta Mithra [SC] - Retribution (1:20:18)

Venture Racing Team returned in force this week two-to-one against Scuderia's Nicoletta Mithra. Early track times indicate she remained competitive against venture throughout most of the race, but she later fell behind from overheating her micro-warp drive to its limit. Despite the limp past the finish line, later analysis would result in her disqualification, securing Venture's total victory this time.

The season scores are available here. We're looking forward to seeing everyone on the track next week for our first exhibition event of the season!

Venture Racing Team once again thanks the league for an exciting event! NeonFolf performed admirably in his first race as Venture's lead pilot in the absence of Team Captain Takashi Kurosawa, reflected in solid scores across the board for the classes in which we fielded pilots. We hope to continue the momentum with a larger segment of the VRT roster at the next race.

Thanks also to our sponsors, White Song and Starfire Heavy Industries!

Cruiser Rally
The first exhibition event began in the Essence region of Federation space, with cruisers required to traverse a ten waypoint event. A majority of the stops were located in rough areas with plenty of pirate and militia activity that led into Verge Vendor. Despite some pirate activity at the last waypoint and an excess of Serpentis at the asteroid belts, no losses were reported.

1 Rawr Cristina - Osprey Navy Issue (0:35:54)
2 Takashi Kurosawa - Stabber (0:36:55)
DSQ PMSing - Cynabal (0:40:45)
3 Nicoletta Mithra - Fleet Scythe (0:43:10)
4 Laureline Laval - Stabber (0:43:14)
DSQ Darina Rea - Arbitrator (0:43:17)

Not one to shy from the Caldari craft, Rawr Cristina once again proved her ability by finishing nearly a minute ahead of Takashi Kurosawa in her Navy Issue Osprey. PMSing's aggressive performance in a Cynabal added an additional surprise, as other racers reported her locking fellow racers early in the event. Nicoletta Mithra led the bottom of the pack in her Fleet Scythe, finishing four seconds ahead of Laureline Laval and just seven seconds ahead of Darina Rea. Both Ms. Rea and PMSing would later be disqualified for missing waypoints, enabling Ms. Mithra to reach third place.

Fifty million ISK in prizes were awarded to the top three winners of this competition. We're looking forward to seeing everyone on the track next week for our the fourth event of the season in The Citadel!

Season 1.0: Far From Bleak
A recap of League racing near the halfway mark.

Last Sunday’s event in the Bleak Lands closed the League’s fifth event of the season, and not without its share of twists and surprises. The interceptor class, the League’s most competitive bracket, is just getting heated up with a close, three-way battle between Dragonstar Racing Team member Searaph, DRT’s Rawr Cristina, and Venture Racing Team’s Takashi Kurosawa. Meanwhile, Scuderia Caille’s demon flir’s stunning performance finishing ahead of the interceptors turned heads while Saikoyu continued to consolidate her lead position for Venture Racing Team in the Assault Frigate class.

A Future Uncertain

For years, Takashi Kurosawa has been the ultimate benchmark of a professional interceptor racer. Many attempts have been made to usurp his championship status, and precious few have even come close to challenging his position. There is a reason both competitor and team mates alike refer to him as almost machine-like in performance, for both his flawless execution on the track and his calm, collected demeanor in person.

From the start of Season 1.0, nearly two years since the last official event, it had appeared as though this was going to be another season dominated by Kurosawa. Unlike other veterans such as Kayleigh Jamieson, who appear to have hit a major slump since their return to the sport, Takashi’s performance was as surgical and flawless as he was two years ago. However, unlike previous seasons, Takashi is facing his toughest competition to date, who have taken full advantage of some mid-season missteps leaving him holding third place and the audience wondering just how this is going to play out.

“In Race 2 [Placid], the nullsec route really threw me for a loop (quite literally),” Takashi admitted, “and unfortunately some planetside business prevented me from participating in Race 3 [Domain].” Mr. Kurosawa even acknowledged his biggest threat from DRT. “Cristina seems faster than ever, and she doesn’t appear to be making any mistakes. It is clear to me that to beat her this season you need to be at the very top of your game.”

Of course, Venture Racing Team’s general manager had an entirely different perspective on the matter, noting the financial and business advantages. “While a Venture hegemony would be advantageous if we were still building a core fanbase, the fact that this is already established means that this kind of fight for position works to our advantage whether we ultimately win or lose.” He also added, “Needless to say, Venture Racing merchandise sales are reflecting a very supportive bunch of fans around the cluster.”

“I wish I could claim some great new tactic or source of speed,” DSR’s Searaph commented, “but the simple fact is both Miss Rawr [Cristina] and Mr. Kurosawa have missed a race so far, and I have not yet.” Searaph’s first place victory in the Bleak Lands secured him a second place position in the individual point scores, just two points behind Cristina, and eight above Kurosawa. He added, “…the differences in the track layout played to certain of my team’s strengths more than it appears to play to Venture’s,” giving credit to his victory to the shorter wait times at the waypoints as the source of his success.

Speed Demon

Another individual to capitalize on the shortened access times at waypoints was Scuderia Caille’s demon flir, who managed to finish a full thirty-five seconds ahead of the first place interceptor racer, and an astonishing five minutes ahead of second place frigate rookie Othar En’gilliath. Although not the first time in his career to finish ahead of interceptors, demon’s exceptional performance and domination of the frigate class since his return, has been a wake-up call for Venture Racing Team.

“Our veteran pilot NeonFolf has been away with some planetside issues,” Venture manager Norrin Ellis explained, “and that leaves our rookies to try and pick up the slack against demon, who happens to be the most experienced veteran in the class.” Acknowledging their trials ahead, Mr Ellis continued, “Our current priority in this class is to make sure our rookies are learning the fundamentals and avoiding sloppy procedure that might incur penalties.”

Mr. flir’s thirty-five point advantage in the professional bracket is a significant lead over his competitors, but Scuderia Caille is only now starting to feeling to effects of his victories as they crawl up to second place in team scores, and only five points behind Venture’s evaporating lead. Many are starting to wonder, with NeonFolf’s continued absence, whether VRT’s band of rookies will force demon work for his victories in the coming weeks.

Tortoise & Hare

The assault frigate class has always been the least popular of the three racing brackets, due largely in part to their sluggish agility and slow speeds. It takes a certain personality to stick with this class, and reward comes to those who remain persistent. In Season 1.0, Venture Racing Team has remained the dominant force in large part due to their veteran racer, Saikoyu. With almost a thirty point advantage over her chief rival in Scuderia Caille, rookie racer Nicoletta Mithra, and a fifty point lead ahead of her teammate Koronakesh, it would appear that little can detour her road to victory.

When asked about the assault frigate class, VRT manager Norrin Ellis replied, “I’m very thankful that Saikoyu is regularly out there flying the colors for us and making us proud.” He continued, noting Ms. Mithra’s presence and close finishes, “Nicoletta is extremely fast, but here at Venture, we know that solving problems is as easy as throwing a Gallente brick at them, and Saikoyu’s Ishkur has been just the brick we need.” Competing against a racing champion, especially in one’s rookie season, is a tremendous feat in itself, and despite her rocky performance many analysts are keeping a close eye on Nicoletta Mithra.
