Been on a minecraft bender all day, totally lost track of time

After the kerfuffle had died down and my pod had got reacquainted with the loving arms of the vaccuum of space I revealed the checkpoint station, some 20 jumps away in a different region. Off sped the racers, some to reship after accompanying me to the vacuum, some to the market and some even to the actual checkpoint. A few minutes later exclaimed on coms;
"Guys Rancer is camped by 4 smartbombing rokhs. . . podded."
"Oh you guys are going the short way?"
"It's always camped."
"Who isn't going the short way?!"
"That system probably on your route."
"Oh shit I just jumped there!"
I really didn't expect everyone to go the short way. So on we go.
"Ah there is a camp further down that pipe aswell, but it's bad I got through it."
A minute later.
"Warp, warp, warp!"
"God damnit instalock!"
"How did you get through that in a rupture?"
"Many stabs! Haha!"
So we people start filtering through to the checkpoint system which is also behind a bottleneck lowsec jump that fortunately isn't camped at this time and pilots pick up the Viral agent to deliver to the finish which is revealed as they enter the system. Zao however being the devious pilot he is camps the outgate and manages to destroy Rayemmi before continuing on his merry way. Now not wanting to let up on the difficult route the final destination had a shortest route going through. . . Amamake and the surrounding lowsec FW systems. Somehow, nobody died, despite Zao being followed all the way by a Cyclone and some passing a FW(pirate) gang on the gates, Everyone safely made their way to the finish destination and handed in their virus's.

The third gate camp I was the only target with two cynabals ready to gcc when I uncloaked. Not willing to lose any time with Cosmo one jump ahead I hit warp directly to the out gate. With the cynabal pilots failing to fit sensor boosters I was able to escape but the danger was not over. I was now in a direct warp to the hi-sec exit in an area renown for having smartbomb camps. A check of local and directional scanner showed flashy pilots and battleships. My reckless flying was about to take me from fourth place to last, fortunately it seems my decision to ignore autopilot and take a different route out of lowsec probably saved my ship. Although I did not catch up to Cosmo I arrived at the finish line with the cargo and only lost one merlin in the process.
This event was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again in the future. Thank you to Cartheron for organizing the event and to all the participates who ran the race/shot me.

I think that rule is fine, otherwise everyone will be in paper inties and it will be a matter of who clicks first. In this way choices matter
Now due to some misthought rules a couple died immeadiately (rule will be revised if I do another)
