Said Wong, who races under the saika159- profile and turned out for Tarmac Works, “This was my first outing at the Legion of Racers Online League and I had a lot of fun being involved with it. It was challenging and my fellow participants pushed me to the limit in every single race. It was organized very well, and I hope to have this event on my race calendar next season as well.”
The LOR also broadcast a livestream for lobby 1 on its Facebook page and managed to garner more than 1000 views. A replay of the lobby can be watched here.
