The Season 12 championship was filled with the winners from this season and it was quite a mix of cars but nothing could have prepared you for the outcome...and the scores show it. The Chrysler Thunderbolt came out on top as the Season 12 champion car while GSR Microracing by only 50 points.
Complete tournament results and highlights
Big congrats to McJiggles9 for his performance all season but in a somewhat awkward moment, since McJiggles won the Season 11 championship and thus already won the Diecast X Magazine grand prize, he can't win the subscription again. Therefore, GSR Microracing wins the Diecast X subscription as he came in second place. But even though McJiggles can't get the subscription, he will receive a nice collection of diecast prize from the Redline Derby collection...so we really have two winners this season!
On the Redline Derby teams front, the Nash Ramblers took home the GreyyCup after downing the Larks 26-19. This was the first season for having automated team scoring and I think it worked out pretty well. There are a few things I want to tweak before next season but overall it went smoothly. For their efforts, all members of the Ramblers receive achievement trophies along with bonus points that they can use to unlock cars next season.
I did take some video of the championship races so I'll post the highlights as soon as I can edit them together, might be a couple days or next weekend before I find the time.
What happens next? For all the new players that came in this season...I hope your first season was fun and exciting! Since the Chrysler Thunderbolt won it will be retired to the Hall of Fame, making it ineligible for regular racing. All the other cars that raced will be available in future seasons but they must be unlocked using your in-game credits. Other than that, players just need to wait until Season 13 starts up and then we'll all race for more prizes.
I don't have a start date for Season 13 just yet. I'm finishing up some site updates and June is a busy month for me just about every weekend so things might not kick off until later in the month. Stay tuned here and on Facebook for updates.
Thanks to everyone that joined and played this season, and thanks to all our sponsors including Diecast X Magazine, Tom's Diecast Cars, Diecast Video and TMA Toys. Please share feedback here in the forum, by PM or by email.
