As the RRLeagues WTCR season enters the home stretch, I thought I would take the chance to both review the season so far and look ahead to the final 3 races and who is planning an assault on both the Driver's and Team's Championships.
With 5 rounds and 10 races in the RRLeagues history books, so far this season has seen a total of 4 winners: Janko Glavac (5), Elmar Kurbanov (1), Robert Horvath (3) and Ralf Arella (1). It has also seen a total of 11 different drivers finishing in either 2nd or 3rd place with all race winners among the 11 drivers to finish on the podium.
This week, a slight tweak to the RRL Driver Rankings was actioned on its 1 year anniversary. Up until now, a drivers previous 20 races had counted towards their ranking score and it had been Ralf Arella who had dominated, being our #1 for 41 of the 46 weeks where the rankings had been calculated. A simply astonishing feat that has left us knowing the German as, Stella Arella!
Robert Horvath was Ralf's main rival and was the only other driver to hold the #1 rank, and only last week the Hungarian managed to wrestle his way back to the top after a 26 week run by Ralf!
Today, the criteria for calculating a driver's ranking changed to his/her previous 15 races for what is hoped will give more drivers a realistic shot at becoming #1. And indeed, this has proved to be the case as Peter 'Backo' Bakus became just our 3rd driver to hold the coveted #1 ranked driver title after a scintillating run of form in the Ford GT & the Zakspeed Capri this season! The Slovakian holds a comfortable margin over fellow countryman, Pavol Nyiri, in 2nd, and won't have any thoughts of relinquishing his 'RRL's Best' accolade anytime soon!
