Qualified 11th, Finished 10th

Had a good quali lap and good race. Happy to lead the race for lap by elongating my stint length and using the strategy to pick up a precious point on the last lap! Good battles with Nick too :)

Don't think I'll be able to make it to the next race, so hope everyone turns up and has a good enjoyable race next week.

Well done to everyone who turned up today, and to the podium finishers!

Q: 6th, Decent enough lap, 21.6 was probably the lower end of what I could have achieved though. I'd put enough fuel for two final runs and invalidated the first at turn 1 so this second was a bit more conservative than I'd have liked.

R: 3rd, Great result, really unexpected considering I was not confident here at all. My pace wasn't 3rd best, but it's all about taking those chances, and I got lucky to avoid that Turn 1-4 chaos  :D I just hope that doesn't mark my best result of the season already haha.

The only battle I had was with JackLacey, I felt quite comfortable defending from him but I made a slight mistake at turn 1/2 and he was close enough to take 2nd, a bit of a shame but he deserved it based on how much faster he was, so well done again on 2nd! And congrats again to BigC as well, I was never going to cling onto him here, his pace was excellent.

Good team result as well with Nic getting 6th! See you all next week  :)

Qualifying 16th: Brilliant lap, happy to get into the top 16.

Race 7th: Did a pretty good job of avoiding the lap 1 carnage until Remco purposely drove into the back of me. Only did one overtake the whole race on Lordy which i managed to mess up, apologies. Very poor performance overall, but with the usual PSGL shenanigans was still able to pick up a few points which was my main goal for this race. The failed title defence is up & running  :113:

Q: 4th
Ashbest was not in the lobby but his car was on track and ruined my final quali run (love this game). Had enough time to do another run but not enough fuel so had to go standard in some parts of the track. was purple until the final sector but really low on fuel so had to go standard on the straight.

R: 9th (should be 8th)
Had a really great start. Greeny braked way too early and I got past him in T1, cliffy spun when he took too much kurb but into T3 my brakes were only going to about 80%. hit the grass and lost control coming back on track and lost the front wing. Nearly got a pitlane penalty because of the brakes again. went to the soft tires and decided I would take them to the end. Was 11th in the later half of the race and losing ground to Irun in 12th because my tires were going bad. The two guys infront of me had a collision at the start of the final lap which put me into 9th. Was driving on ice for the rest of the lap with Irun only a few tenths behind.

P.s. finished 9 seconds behind lordy on track and the game said he had 14 seconds of pens according to the classifications. He had a 5 second pit lane pen which needs to be added so should be promoted to 8th if the admins see fit.

First few corners highlights... the rest had no overtakes so pointless showing that:
