Guys, I would like to point out that the "finality" of the Constitution and its immutability is not a "dictatorial" act on the contrary; it is an act aimed at preserving the Constitution from various upheavals that could deprive it of the beauty and importance it has. Precisely for this reason, however, I introduced the "General Code" a sort of Constitution, albeit modifiable, which will contain the laws that will regulate the region from a social, military point of view, etc.
Thanks so much ;)

Endurance Racing FP1
Endurance Racing Day One
Free Practice 1 got under way at the National Autodrome in Izio. The earlier rainfall meant the drivers had to contend with a drying track.
Simi Stucker would send Team Hospe's car into the gravel after misjudging his entry into Turn Four.
Team Forest Virginia spun several times on the track and narrowly avoided a pit lane collision with Team Octonovem. This led to a heated exchange of words between Octonovem's Natille Brunner and F. Virginia's Lee Godwin.
However, when the final times were chalked up, Team Forest Virginia would find themselves in p5 with a top time of 1:44:27.
Team Ottonna were fourth with a time of 1:44:05.
Team Hospean Border Islands had a quiet but speedy run finishing p3 with a time of 1:42:64.
Team Laufeyssen and Team Finmany would thrash it out at the top of the standings but Brad Elliot was able to some extra tenths of a second putting Team Finmany on the top step with a time of 1:40:12 as compared to Team Laufeyssen's top time of 1: 41: 04.

Eevi Larsen of Laufeyssen topped the time sheets with a time of 1: 27:08.
Octonovem's Gregory Havirz and Louie Vega rounded up the top three in second and third respectively.

Open Wheel FP1
The Open Wheel free practice session took place at the National Autodrome in Izio. The track surface was mostly dry and the only challenge faced by the drivers was finding the perfect set up.

Endurance Racing FP2
Free Practice Two commenced after the Open Wheel racers had their own free practice session. 

All teams set improved times but we saw a new number one as Forest Virginia beat their fp1 time by over six seconds.

Team Nerrise improved their time by three seconds but still brought up the rear. The Hospean Border Islands were the only to not post an improved result posting a slower time than their earlier effort. 

Team Octonovem took five seconds off their earlier effort to claim the number two slot. The Tjorlish team also improved their lap time but could only move up two places into sixth.

Kart Racing Free Practice 2
Hospe's Iris Freed set the early standard with a 1:25:00. Multiple attempts to match this time led to nothing but a stunning late lap by Eevi Larsen put Team on top with a 1:24: 44 with only four minutes left in the session.
Tjorl's Rosemarie Lafrentz rounded up the top three with a time of 1: 25: 04.

Kart Racing Qualifying
After an hour in which many teams rushed to make necessary adjustments to their karts, it was time for Qualifying.
All eyes were on Eevi Larsen and she failed to disappoint, setting an astounding 1: 23: 35 time early in the session. Eleven minutes from the end of the session, however a bevy of faster times rolled in. Octonovem's Louie Vega put himself on provisional pole with a time of 1:23:05, but on the same lap Finmany's Max Grove and Cam Tyrrell brought in near identical lap times of 1:23:02 and 1:23:03. Tjorlish representative Lafrentz also found her stride with a 1:23:00.
It would be Hospe's Iris Freed that would take the times to another level with a 1:22: 71 and claim pole position to deafening applause. The fast lap times kept rolling in, including an improved result from pole favourite Eevi Larsen.

Karting Slalom Training Session
The Karting Slalom training session got well under way at the Ozara International Circuit. No times were recorded competitively but all participants seemed well briefed on what would be expected of them.

Open Wheel FP2
Free Practice Two was faced with rainfall which provided a tough time for the drivers. Experience shone through, however as big names Derek "Risky" Busines and Keira Trezeguet proved themselves to be head and shoulders above the rest of the field in the almost treacherous conditions. They traded lap times, shedding several tenths of a second that other drivers couldn't let go off. Ultimately Busines, the star of Team Octonovem took the lead with a time of 1:27:48. Trezeguet's closest effort would only bring her to 1:27:91. While this was enough to send the Hospean crowd into raptures, Evan Edewor found himself in fifth, the young Series 1 star unable to improve upon a 1:30:75, despite having frequented the National Autodrome during his career.
Arechavaleta secured the final spot on the provisional podium, followed closely by Nerrise national, Desdemona Pikeman. Starring performance by the representatives from Tjorl, Holzer and Storstrand put out closely identical performances with Holzer taking the lead by just a tenth of a second. Laufeyssen's Helstrom failed to set a time after putting her car in the barriers on the exit of Turn Five. Teammate, Alf Larson complained about his setup over the radio and never seemed at home in the car. Team Forest Virginia experimented with their setup but seemed worse off for it, posting the slowest times of the session.

Open Wheel Qualifying
After the practice session came Qualifying, the drying track providing very tricky conditions for the drivers. The barriers at the exit of Turn Five got a bit more action as Larsen beached his car on his first lap, bringing out yellow flags. Larsen was able to drive his car back to the pit lane but it will no doubt be a late night for the Laufeyssenian crew.
Larsen was hardly the only driver to have troubles staying on the track as Webber, Alvira, Bedford and Holzer would all find themselves on the grass at various intervals. There was trouble in the Tjorlish garage as Storstrand's car refused to start for the better part of the session, she managed to post a time eventually but would line up fifteenth on the grid. Holzer seemed to have no grip and had his best lap time deleted for exceeding track limits at Turn Eight. Trezeguet's experience with the track paid off as she posted an unbeatable 1:11:16, taking pole position. Octonovem's Derek Busines would pull out all the stops on the final moments of the session but a lap time that would have seen him take pole position was deleted for exceeding track limits at Turn 8 leading to chaos amongst the Octonovemian crowd.
1 K Trezeguet 1:11:16
2 D Busines 1:12:01
3 E Edewor 1:14:09
4 D Pikeman 1:14:11
5 S Helstrom 1:14:13
6 S Arechavaleta 1:15:02
7 D Ricciardo 1:15:13

15 A Storstrand 1:16:11
16 J Chilton 1:16:13
17 J Bedford 1:16:56
18 A Larsen DNQ
Hospe will have the statistical edge tomorrow as the pressure will be on Edewor to give Busines enough problems for Trezeguet to break away. There is also the question of if Arechavaleta will be able to make up enough ground to help out her team mate. Pikeman won at this track during the most recent season of Series 1, she has a chance of winning, she will be looking to capitalise on it.
Terrible day for Team Tjorl, their setup absolutely lacked the needed pace but it's too early to rule them out. Helstrom is up front and could potentially podium here but that second Laufeyssenian car will be sorely missed.
An important thing to note is that there were no truly slow times today as the entire field is covered by just five seconds on a track that couldn't decide if it was going to be wet or dry.

Rallying Stage 1
The first actual Rally stage got off an interesting start. The representatives would be crossing the southern marshlands. There were various reports of cars becoming stuck in the mud. Teams: Forest Team Orange, Finmany Red Devils, Team Geri and Subaru Do Motorsport needed to have at least one driver leave the vehicle and help push the car out.

Open Wheel Race 1
The first Open Wheel race event got underway at the National Autodrome in Izio. All 47 laps of the race were rather exciting as there was at least one battle to watch.
There was chaos at the first corner as Jacoby Robinson from the Hospean Border Islands went into Finmany's Pato Russel. Tjorl's Angela Storstrand was unable to avoid the collision and clipped Robinson's rear wing on her way into the barriers. The race was red flagged for over an hour. Jacob Holzer, Evan Edewor and Lauren Alvira provided some entertainment for fans online, streaming their various teams' red flag antics on Instagram.
The race restart was very exciting as Trezeguet and Busines went wheel to wheel through the first few corners, Trezeguet was able to pull away on the Gator Straight and would more or less remain unbothered for the rest of the race as Edewor quickly caught up to Busines on the next lap. Both drivers would go wheel to wheel with Edewor trying every trick in the book to get past Busines and being foiled everytime. This went on for over ten laps until Edewor would go off the track after contact with Busines into Turn Eight. The Hospean driver was called into the pits on the next lap and was livid on the team radio as he felt Busines had not left the required space. Edewor's little excursion was quite catastrophic as Greater Ottonna andLaufeyssen's Daniel Ricciardo and Solveig Helstrom who were charging through the field on softer and faster tyre compounds than everyone else quickly got past.
Edewor and Pikeman would clash several times for five laps but the Nerrisean driver would get the move done in Turn Five. Meanwhile, Holzer would make a heroic drive from his promotion to 12th place to 10th making a clean pass on Webber on the Gator Straight. He would make multiple attempts to pass Hamric but the man from Forest Virginia was driving the widest car on the car. Hamric's defensive driving left Lauren Alvira the time and space to go after Octonovem's Sheryl Arechavaleta but would ultimately fail to make the pass in time for the checkered flag with Arechavaleta taking the fastest lap on the very last lap. It was an easy pole to win victory for Keira Trezeguet, as her team mate's battle with Busines allowed the reigning Series 1 champion to open up a 13 second lead from the Octonovemian.

Open Wheel Race 3
Today's race could be considered one of attrition as a heavy downpour of rain led to many cars spinning of track. The race was red flagged for forty five minutes until the rain stopped but even then, the very wet track proved very challenging for many drivers. Busines chose to stay out on slick tyres which saw him grow his race lead by almost twenty seconds but a hard charging Helstrom on wet tyres would overturn the deficit and made the pass with much better grip on the final corner, twelve laps from the end of the race. Busines would fight back until the very end but Helstrom would beat him to the checkered flag by less than a second. Meanwhile, Angela Storstrand put on a magical performance after teammate Holzer put his car into the barriers at turn nine, to fight her way through the pack and score the final podium place.
