Please put a link to it hereLovely racing lads enjoyed especially the feature race.
Qualified 6th only 0.5 off pole which was very decent, race was loads of fun started om hard tires in front which gave me a different strategy, had a good battle with roger in the subaru. After the pitstops bit of a lonely race into 5th.
Sprint race a complete dissaster, had a terrible start which gave me last place instantly. After making up a few places i was able to pass the spanish ferrari for 7th but unfortunately we had a missunderstanding. He was pitting and i wasnt which made me hit the wall. Was able to bring it home in 7th with a nice last battle.
Enjoyed the racing lads, ill upload the races on youtube.
No, its not necessary.
That'll likely be my reaction right at the end of qualifying, when I put in what is a perfect lap for me and then 5 seconds later Ash goes half a second quicker.
Qualifying - P3
The lap was a PB on mediums, so wasn't much time for me in it.
Feature Race - P3
Managed to hold position at the start. Managed to get a run on @Wobbuffet going into the long right hander but he held it around the outside. Had a similar run on the next lap but stayed behind to avoid losing time to Ash and the GP1 guys behind. After fending off @Gareth Kirk, was basically just holding position for the rest of the stint, Sylar had pulled away a bit but I had Phantom and TripleG on me the whole way. Pitted on lap 8 and was once again right behind Sylar. This time I understeered wide on the exit of the long right hander and almost lost the car, unfortunately this cost me the position to @TubbyPhantom. The rest of the stint was just a repeat of the first stint (apart from Sylar's DSC), on lap 15 I came in for my 2nd stop, it looked to me like Phantom almost forgot to pit but he made it anyway. We came out literally at the same time, and I managed to get the switchback in T1 and held it around the outside in T2 and he had some wheelspin on the exit which helped me by. We were once again basically nose to tail for the rest of the stint (I don't think the gap went above 2s) but on the penultimate lap he had a good run out of the S section and he got me into the last corner and held me off for the final lap, so in the end it was P3.
Sprint Race - P5
Had a good start off the line but was too cautious for the rest of the lap and ended up P10 by the end of sector 3. After that I was slowly making my way up and was P5 by the pitstops on lap 6. @Ashracer2011 pitted a lap later and came out alongside me, but managed to get past at T2. After he get past Phantom, it was me vs him again for the 2nd time and once again he managed to hold me off meaning I finished P5.
Results probably could've been better but nice to see I was on the pace, it's shaping up to be a good season. Shoutout to @TubbyPhantom who I was battling for most of the races, he drove clean and fair (probably left too much room at times), really enjoyed the battles. Congrats to @Ashracer2011 and @Wobbuffet on their wins and @Gareth Kirk and @TubbyPhantom on their podiums. Hopefully will have the hosting issues sorted by next week.
Easy when you've got a head start by 9 cars and don't have to overtake anyone But I had a good enjoyable race battling @Gareth Kirk and @TubbyPhantom, which is what racing's all about, rather than just sailing off into the distance alone.Ok race report time I guess.
Qualy - 2nd, Race - DSC
I knew I had to pull a bigger gap as Ash would likely go hell for leather if I was only a few seconds ahead, and by the time Ash had got ahead of Triple G I had increased my lead to just over 4.5 seconds, that next lap Ash had managed to get my lead down to around 4 seconds, but I pitted for fresh tyres and I hadn't noticed this at the start but I was on mediums to begin with, so I went on to softs and unsurprisingly I was able to go a fair bit faster.
Ash who stayed out was only a couple seconds ahead and I pretty much caught him by the end of the lap, he then pitted and I took back the lead, I then increased my lead over the next couple laps to Triple G and with a 8 second gap to him I knew all I had to do with just 3 laps left was do solid mistake free laps which I did, I ended up winning the race 6 seconds ahead of Ash - job done.
Looking back at the races, I can't help but feel frustrated as the dsc probably robbed me of 2nd, sure I'm happy I won the sprint but from a championship perspective I would have preferred to taken a couple podiums instead.
Anyway I have to say congrats to @Ashracer2011 on a great feature win performance and sprint podium, and well done to @TubbyPhantom, @Hasnain & @Gareth Kirk on there respective podiums last night.
