LFS Community Year-End Awards; the results!

02-01-2008 - The year-end awards competition, organised and executed by community members, has turned out to be a great success for F1RST Racing! With nominations in 6 categories, amongst which team, ánd driver of the year, and several honorable mentions in various categories, the competition was a success before the official voting had even started. Little did we know that we would win 5 of the 6 categories we were nominated in!! Read on for more about the big winner of the 2007 awards competition!

Under the official name "LFS Community Year-End Awards 2007" a voting competition was started on the official LFS forum to let the community judge about who were the winners of the year 2007. As mentioned above, F1RST Racing was well represented in the various categories...

The whole team got nominated for "Team of the year (best all-round)" and "Best team website" and also a couple of our members were nominated for some of the individual categories:
- Our latest addition to the team Jesse Nieminen for "Most improved driver" of the year.
- The fast and friendly Christian Krognes for "Most sportsmanlike driver" of the year.
- The incredibly talented Teemu Vedenoja for "Driver of the year" and "Most talented skinner" of the year.

Competitors in the category Team of the year (best all round) were Mercury Racing Team, CoRe Racing, Zwarte Wind Racing and UK Computing Team. At first sight a shear impossible mission, but a couple of days into the voting procedure, it was clear that it would be a close finish between us and Mercury. In the end we took the win with 36,34% of the votes, against 33.54% for Mercury! Getting this award from the hands of the community itself is a highlight in the almost three years of existence of the team!

In the category "Best team website" it was again Mercury that was our main competitor. But very soon in the voting procedure it was quite clear that we were going to bring this award to our webspace! In the end we had collected a massive 63,03% of the votes! This award is dedicated to Casper Roescher who is the designer and inventer of the website, so congratulations Casper! Good to see hard work doesn't go unnoticed!

Jesse Nieminen's competitors for the "Most improved driver" award were Dustin Dawes from UKCT, and CR|Moose. For us as a team it was already clear that Jesse deserved this award more than anyone, looking at his extremely strong performance in his first (half-)year of LFS racing. The community confirmed this feeling and Jesse took the award with 43.51% of the votes! Congratulations Jesse!

The "Most sportsmanlike driver" was - ironically enough - one of the tightest fights of the awards. Christian Krognes' "friendly rivals" were Patrick Galaske from My3id Gaming, Dave Pope and Richard Torp from Triple 7 Racing and Storm from R4R. If it was for us, Chris deserved this award like no one else in the community, but we know his competitors as very friendly and sportsmanlike too, so we expected it to be a close call. In the end Chris took it away with 27.08% of the votes, making him the Most sportsmanlike driver of 2007! A great achievement, especially since his sportsmanship is combined with incredible speed.. a fairly unique combination of skills! Congratulations Chris!

For the title "Most talented skinner" Teemu Vedenoja was in a league on his own. Teemu is the designer of our and many other team skins, and on top of that releases top-class public skins for the community, for free and on an almost daily basis. This award - which he won with a loud and clear 66.77% of the votes - is therefore more than deserved. Congratulations Teemu!

In the category Driver of the year (best all round) Teemu was put up against the virtually unbeatable Raymond Mooney from Mercury Racing Team, Nils Naujoks from SK Gaming and IRT Andy(Ger). As most of us had expected Raymond Mooney took the trophy. Teemu ended in fourth position, yet we are very proud of his achievements in especially the CTRA league and servers! Congratulations Teemu!

So all in all I think we can speak of an extremely successful 2007 for F1RST Racing!
We would like to thank everyone that voted for us! It's just incredibly flattering to see the amount of support we've had! We wish you all a great, sportsmanlike and successful 2008!
