And the Race Champion of SIP is…

During our Halo 4 Race Tournament, participants raced against themselves to get fast lap times, and against each other in four weeks of events on challenging courses. It seemed like one would coast to victory based on his performance in the first three weeks, but another managed to stage a comeback in the final week of competition. Please join me in congratulating MrFish for winning the Race Tournament and becoming the Race Champion of SIP!

For winning, MrFish got the first pick from the prize pool, choosing the $20 Xbox gift card. He will also receive the Contest Winner Alpha ribbon to proudly display on his profile. Pokenut, the runner-up, elected for the $10 Xbox gift card, and NeoRman69, in third, picked up a 1-year SIP Premium Membership.

Big thanks should go to our Premium members who donated to SIP, as their donations funded the prizes for this event. Also, Pokenut deserves kudos for finding these maps and forging them to work with the official Race gametype. (You should also thank him for removing some of the hard kill volumes that would set you back if you missed certain jumps, even by a fraction.)
