Season 5 summary

And yet another season ended, but season 5 is one to be remembered. For the first time we have a double RL Top League karting champion (counting since season 3, when qualification and races were released). It is Victor Dieguez who went down in RL history! He managed to do it even though he accidentally missed qualification in one event! So let's go quickly through the season.

After first 2 events (4 races) Qinqin Rilt was favourite to become a champion, with almost 20 points ahead of Kamil Jastrzebski and over 30 point over Giacomo Lonf in 3rd place. Victor was 54 points behind and I bet that no one expected what happened then. Victor started his unbelievable series with 8 wins in 9 races (7 wins in a row). He could easily win 3 last races of the season, but as he mentioned, he left this record to be beaten in the future :) At this stage he had 73 point advantage over Qinqin (whose form was systematically dropping down) who finished championship in 2nd place and 96 points ahead of Giacomo Lonf, who finished 3rd thanks to fantastic form at the end of the season.

Star of the season: Victor Dieguez. No doubt about it
Positive surprise: Giacomo Lonf. Thanks to his good performance in second half of the season and for his first win in Top League in last race.
Negative surprise: Marcin R Regowy. As a defending champion he finished at 12. position
Top League rookie of the season: Kamil Jastrzebski. Very good start of the season and 4 times on podium.

Whole season was dominated by 3 drivers. After 4 races Michel Sampaio was the early leader. But then Dylan Sharman caught very good form and won 4 races in a row. Second part of the season belonged to third driver: Dw001, but the championship title went to the Michel who won last 2 races and finished ahead of Dylan by just 5 points.

It was one of the toughest leagues in season 5. 6 drivers were fighting for a promotion. Scott O'Neill from Australia was an early leader winning 3 out of 4 races, but finally he finished in 3rd place. Andrea Spaccapistoni won the league with 6 race wins ahead of Pedro Sprint (3 wins). Marcin Cebula ended up in 4th with 2 wins and Oscar Pesavento finished 5th with 1 win. In this league there was 6 different race winners. Brazilian Carlao Bolezina won 1 race and was 5 times on podium but it wasn't enough to promote to the Top League. He finished 27 points behind Oscar.

3 out of 5 players who finished in promotion zone are from Poland. Rafal Po, Pawel Mrozicki and Szybki Manfred had pretty easy way to the Top League, but the winner is from Canada: Frank Schiap. 6 wins and 10 times on podium gave him 63 points advantage over Rafal in second place. Brazilian jorge correia won 2 races and finished in 4th.

So who is on charge for championship crown of season 6?
First 2 races showed a strength of Season 1 and Season 2 champion: Damian Baran. He used to win only 1 race per season, but now he already won 2 out of 2 races this season. Giacomo, Qinqin and Victor are almost 20 points behind with only 1 point separating this 3 guys.
Best Top League rookie so far is Andrea Spaccapistoni, who won League 2.8 in season 4 and League 1.2 in season 5. He was 9th and 14th so it will be very hard for him to keep such good results this time :)
