Congrats mate fantastic race you have this title u have my full support hope you get it. Would also like to add how clean the racing was side by side and no contact really got the heart pumpingHoly **** my heartbeat is still 150. What a race.
Had a perfect quali lap that I'll never be able to repeat and the gap was more than it should've normally been. Had a very bad start from the lead, guess that happens if you never get front row and take it very easy. Lost three positions and ended up in P4. Garin misjudged Pouhon and I could hunt Heis and Wilson who drove away 5 seconds. Heis slowly fell back and I managed to get past without any time loss to hunt for Wilson.
And hunting it became. We were very close and fought closely until I couldn't go on with my fuel load and had to pit with 40 minutes to go. My team spent about 5 seconds getting me in the right position while I stood very well, so it felt a bit like the the clowns on the ferrari pit wall

Not as bad as last season's tho, when they refused to service me because I was 3cm too far forward.
After 30 years in the pits I drove two laps and heated my tyres again, and Wilson came out of the pits on about the same distance as I was behind him when I started the pits. Knowing he had cold tyres, I knew that if I were to make a move, I should do it either that or the next lap. Had a run out of Paul Frère and positioned myself on the outside of Blanchimont. Stayed on the outside of Blanchimont and got to the inside of the busstop. And then it was the stuff from before the pit stops, but then reversed.
I got to 2.5 seconds ahead of Wilson with my feet on the throttle pedal as pressured as never before and lapped some people. And then disaster struck for @Kieron Wilson unfortunately with a 4th cut track, giving him a drive through and demoting him to 8th. I had two at the time, but when I got my 3rd I put TC high, engine mode two and got scared of any corner. Bah in P2 made up about 11 seconds in the last two laps. But my first ACC AOR win, it feels great!
It's gonna be a one-off though, I love Spa and had much time to practise - that's gonna be different for the remaining races.
Will post my race asap, YT is slow.
I saw you couldn’t do much to avoid me and I only had light damage so I only lost some time.i had a brilliant race, not the best first couple of laps. lap 1, Daly was a bit out of position on starting and got a bit of a tap on my left which pushed me into Legrand and we both lost time and had some damage!!!
then on lap 2 i spun and lost more time.
but after that for most of the race kept consistent and mistake free until about 15mins from end, where i got upto P11, but then spun.
Steve Allan and M.Duchs got past me again and i was able to catch Steve Allan, and overtake him as he was struggling but i couldnt pass M.Duchs
But P12 finish which ismy best so far and good racingt to boot!!
Onwards and hopfully upwards.
