Top 3 racers (as of 3:00+ PM): Janette3 (3rd), Rydon (2nd), Babyshrimps (1st).

Thanks to Janette3 for hosting most of the races last Saturday. There were some technical issues so the race event didn’t finish at exactly 4:00 PM, but it was still nice to see everyone compete and have a good time. :D

Thanks to all the racers who joined and to the players who dropped by. See you again next Saturday!

Since this is April’s last BMAP round, this will be a special one, meaning there are no limits to its participants and winners! As long as you submit an entry that follows the rules above, you can join the line up of April’s special BMAP round winners. :D

Winners will get 50 SoBucks each. Submit your pictures before the next BMAP round is posted. Have fun!
