02 Nov 2016 — Marcell Gutai passed through more than half the field from 11th on the starting grid to first place at the finish line in the Cascavel Stock Car '14 in the opening round of the Swift Sport Autumn Chase series.

Driving the Chevrolet, Gutai spent the majority of 10 laps total pursuing Alan Rasman after engaging him on lap 8, coming from as many as 10 positions back. Gutai launched a prolonged attack at Rasman early in the running, staying within an apex behind him and keeping pace over a continuous run of nine laps. Gutai got around Rasman and into first place on lap 17, and held it the remaining 22 laps to the checkered flag.

A razor-thin 0.396 seconds separated Rafael Iwata ahead of Alex Alvim at the checkered flag for Iwata to take fifth place.

One last pass on the final lap put Alan Rasman in third place at the finish line.

Iwata ran all of 17 laps total pursuing Ken Jagger after targeting him on the first lap. In the end Iwata settled into fifth the 33 laps running to the conclusion, holding off Alvim by the tight margin at the line.

Driving the Chevrolet, Rasman traded positions with Paul Anstey in a prolonged battle for second starting midway through, sparring over a span of 20 laps. Rasman spent nearly equal parts leading Anstey after being engaged by him on the first lap. After losing the spot on lap 17, Rasman got around Anstey and into third place when Anstey retired on the final lap.

Swift Sport Autumn Chase series moves on to Round 2 in a week at Goiania. The series has 11 drivers competing for points in the championship.

Ken Jagger captured second place.

Jagger spent the majority of 32 laps total pursuing Paul Anstey after engaging him on lap 8, coming from as many as three places back. Jagger launched an extended attack at Anstey in the early stages, staying within a couple turns behind him and gaining ground over an unbroken run of 21 laps. Jagger got around Anstey and into second place on lap 29, and defended it against pressure by Anstey another 10 laps toward the checkered flag.

Filled my car up to the max and for some reason this wasn't enough. Everyone else finished but not me. I'm totally perplexed. Only used 3 out of the 8 boosts as I forgot about them at the beginning of the race so I guess this was enough to use up the fuel. If GSCE didn't add another lap after the time limit is up I would have made it as I ran out of fuel right on the finish line. Thought I'd made it and then the message 'One Lap to Go' came up. Ground to halt in a stream of explitives. Pooh!

Well done Marcell :)

Used all 8 of the boosts, the last lap i had to lift a little and went through the finish line with 0.0 fuel,so i think it has to do with driving styles, also.

I wanted to say sorry to Jason for reentering the track in such a criminal way, i wanted to get to the inside but i think i put it in second and found myself crawling through the track, i hope i didnt cause any trouble!

You didn't, Alan. No sweat, I just avoided and carried on. Didn't think twice about it. Thanks for the apology though, means more when SOME actually care about others races as well....respect, my friend! :)

Unlike SOMEONE who decided to use a few of us as a braking point in one of the initial corners on L1....thanks. :/
There is this thing, it's called the brake pedal...you use it in racing sometimes.

Why is it that some don't realize that you can't race like you hotlap? That your braking points are going to change, sometimes DRASTICALLY, when you are behind other traffic. What is it about "stack braking" that some don't understand?

Honestly, might sound a bit mean spirited, but the truth is, I'd very much like it if that ilk would either A-learn proper racecraft....or B- just go the hell on and race the public servers with the other crash kiddies. Sometimes......ugggghhh...sometimes! LOL

Anyways, there's my rant.
Planned to have a really good race and was running a decent pace...but, hard to utilize the car when it's half broken the entire race....think I lost the entire rear wing (not that you need it much here) but coupled with some suspension damage, I was "chopping" every bump on track, especially in that long T1 sweeper...which is where, consistently, lap after lap, I lost a lot of time. Just couldn't make the car do what I wanted after being shunted to oblivion.

(And yeah, I hope you read this because I KNOW you know who you are...and I hope you are sad...really sad....Mr. Crash Kiddie.....NO EXCUSES...not this time. There was ample time to brake...this one's on your shoulders, crash bandicoot!)

Now...I'll show myself the door before I get myself into trouble. :)

Take care guys, see you next race.
Thanks to that that race proper...you guys make times like this one worth it.

Cheers
-Jason

Well, with all the variable post-race comments, it at least looks like this series got off to a bang of sorts!

I hadn't realised that Marcell started so far back, so when he closed up on me I thought it was Rafael driving like a Demon. After Alan's off and dubious track re-entry (I was right behind Jason at the time) I found I could hold the pace and slowly pull away from Rafael.

Surprisingly as the race went on I saw the gap closing to Paul ahead of me, and eventually on L29 I was tight on his bumper coming onto the back straight. Using my boost I was again surprised that he didn't respond and I went by him fairly easily. Now I know he was nursing fuel, so couldn't use it.

Not sure why your fuel was a problem Paul as I finished with still enough in the tank for another lap or two and had used all 8 boosts. Maybe it was a gearing thing?

With Alan's earlier off, the gap was big enough to the end for me not to have to push over the limit.

Grats to Marcell on a great performance and thanks to all who raced for getting this new series off to a cracking start.

Click on the link just below the results at the top of this page although the replay file doesn't seem to be there at the moment. Do you have the save replay option on in your game? If so you should have the file already.
