Final race tonight lads! Let's try to send this thing off with a bang (well, good racing preferably, not too much banging)!

Would also be great if at least those who finish in the top 3 in the standings at the end can be available in Discord for an interview with the commentators after the race :)

Good luck to all!

Running in P5 after a brilliant start, a lot of points there to get, but my minds just says no and I hit the wall to have front wing damage for the rest of the race.
Nevertheless congrats to the top 3. Good luck in London

Here is my race, once again congratulations, bottled the quali lap and suffered as a result. Made two important overtakes into Turn 1, but it wasn't enough!

Had a poor Qualifying due to me changing wings for the wet weather and I raised them a little too much which gave me no speed, but then Q is my weak point.

Was a good race, wet weather suited me more than I expected. Had some good battles with @JoniJohn, couldn't get past him when it mattered and when I did get close I made too many mistakes to really make a challenge. Same goes for @Qelon.

Congratulaions to @Graham Carroll, @Olli Pahkala and @Ycoms. You all deserve this! :).

Congrats to our top 3 @Graham Carroll, @Olli Pahkala and @Ycoms! Very well deserved. (y)

Reviewing my race: P5 is a great result for me and I couldn´t have hoped for more. As soon as I saw the weather prediction for the race I knew: If I can´t grab at least one point today then I´ll never ever get one in this series. However what impresses me most and surely a lot of other people too is the gap to the top 4 which made everyone else look like we were driving in a different class (probably we were in some ways :D). Kudos for such a dominant performance!
