The first to exceed 5000 points in the Asia/Oceania region, Dodge wins Test Season 4
Test Season 4 Overview

The Manufacturer Series Test Season 4 was held across 6 rounds from November 26 to December 2nd, and the opening round was a Gr.3 race staged on the Suzuka Circuit. McLaren (JUN-_-JEEEEN), Honda (s-shohei_), and Dodge (legacy0193) scored high in these races, kicking off the battle for the 4th season title.

Round 2 was a Gr. 4 race on the Dragon Trail Seaside. Here in the 2nd race of the day, Audi (matsunagake) starting from 2nd place beats Dodge (Brond) starting from pole position, racking up 1651 points.

At midpoint of the series after 3 races, in 1st place was Honda (s-shohei_/4554pts), with Dodge (Brond/4428pts) in second, and McLaren (JUN-_-JEEEEN/4384pts) in third.

But a new turn of events was waiting in Round 4 (Driving Park Yamagiwa II / Gr. 4). Alfa Romeo (s-o16com) who had been missing in the first 3 races comes out of nowhere for a pole-to win, with a high score.

In the 5th Round on the Nürburgring GP, it was a race of Group 3 cars. Audi (gilles_honda_v12) entering the second race of the day scores 1847 points with a pole-to-win, but having skipped races 1-4 there was not enough races left for the Audi driver to get enough points to win. Meanwhile Dodge in 2nd place (Brond) rises significantly with 1744 points. Expectations were high for Alfa Romeo but s-o16com did not come through this time, ending the race in 7th place without a large increase in points..

In the final Round 6 on the Brands Hatch GP (Gr. 4), Dodge (Brond), Audi (matsunagake) Alfa Romeo (s-o16com) and Honda (s-o16com) all entered the 2nd race of the day for a direct showdown.

A heated battle ensued with the top 4 cars never giving way throughout the race, and the race ended with the same positions as the qualifier. Alfa Romeo in first place (s-o16com) gained a high score of 1948 points. This race also concluded the series point rankings, with Alfa Romeo rising to 2nd place with just the last 3 races.

And the series victory went to Dodge (Brond) who actually finished this race in 8th. Brond was able to fend off the competition with the points gained up to the last race. Meanwhile, Audi (matsunagake) who finished the race in 2nd rose in the series rankings up to 3rd place.
