It's a Knockout! 2018/19 - Qualifying Round: Microprose Formula One Grand Prix

It's a Knockout! 2018/19 - Qualifying Round: Microprose Formula One Grand Prix

Starts: 00:01 November 25th Finishes: 23:59 December 8th

Benvenuto to the Italian Qualifying Round for our winterly Knockout tournament!
We'll be playing on the two legendary tracks Imola (San Marino) and Monza (Italy)!

And due to popular demand (including my own) we play at 25fps!

Rules

Rules are available here. Super League rules are here.

Post a picture of your score here with the score written underneath. Enter as often as you like.

Players must use the 25fps compo hack, either the WHD or ADFs provided.

We will be playing Practice Mode and posting our best lap times.
Default setting is PRO difficulty but you may change it to any lower difficulty (ACE is not allowed) and use any assist except INVULNERABILITY (and savestates )!
You can also use any setup and any tyre-type you want (Q is highly recommended though).
Write down the lap times and your total time in milliseconds (with minutes converted to seconds) under your screenshot.
If you only post the time for one track you'll be "awarded" 1,000,000 bonus points (until you post a time for the other track).

Tied scores will be separated by whoever submitted their score first.

DO NOT CUT the track! We will find out by your lap time if you did!
Only drive on the asphalt and curbs.

No cheating (including savestates) - anyone caught cheating gets disqualified.

Here's how the qualifying system works:

Between 9-13 people enter: 8 people qualify.
Between 14-17 people enter: 12 people qualify.
18+ people enter: 16 people qualify.

Remember you have to enter this round to have any chance of playing later on - but please only enter if you feel you will be able to commit to playing the full tournament (this is important, too many people who qualify and then don't take part in the later rounds which spoils the competition).

Have fun and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

No big mistakes, but there's at least one corner in Imola, I could really do better.

Imola: 1:19.236 (79236)
Monza: 1:17.805 (77805)

Countless 1:20-rounds, only three 1:19s, and then this:



Imola: 1:18.439
Monza: --:--.---
================
Total score: 1,078,439

Very rusty, but also very satisfied with the result of this first session.

Just a little less than one week to go. We need three more players for there to even be a Round 1.

Where's capehorn?

Didn't he engineer this comp specifically to win it?

Is there such a thing as karma?
