Just a heads up, I'm at Silverstone on Sunday for the Blancpain GT race, I should be back home in time for 8, but if I don't show that is why :)

Most likely wont be racing this one as my final exam is on Monday afternoon, but might use it as a welcome break if I feel up for it. ;)

Oh god, this is like 3rd time I'm writing my report while the race is still actually going. And't it's a real shame condisidering I had one of my better races here last season. I was sandwitched after the start and spun into the wall, lost my front wing and got a drive trough coming back to change it. I was last and 20 seconds behind. I got that to 10 secs but then I span on the green thingie on the exit of turn 3, hit the wall of the right and lost my front wing again. So I just retired into the pits since I could do nothing anymore.

Great race, first time to finish in the points for me in split 2! :D

Had some good battling throughout the whole race but also some pretty close calls, specialy the 2nd one with @RigorousTiger and @Snarf Snarf

Congrats to @OmegaIV ! Nice first win there!


Regarding myself I wasn´t lucky in this game since months, so no surprise it continued this round. :penguin:

First, I was sent into the wall by @Michaelx99 during qualifying. Don´t know what you were trying there or what was going on in general (lag?) but it didn´t work out for both of us. I had to start last.

Second, My start was ok but there was some scramble going on next to me towards turn 1. This time I was sent to Narnia, fortunately without hitting the wall but it did cost me a lot of time.

Third, For some reason I could not hear my engineer the whole race although he is hearable in the video.

Apart from all that it was a really enjoyable race. My pace wasn´t great and especially my exits out of the chicane were too slow.
The second stint was truly insane. Literally every lap during the second half of the race I had to defend from multiple attacks down the main straight. Was good fun to fight with @Takacs Oliver @GRZEGORZ and @Mulchian - thx for keeping it clean. After the DSC from @Ezend92 my tough race was rewarded with a point.

I can recommend to watch this because some good racing without any contact happened here and there. :joyful:

Sorry for being so late but I wanted to wait until I upload my highlights.

After messing up my quali lap in sector 3, which cost me pole I had a great start which got me up to p1. After lap 1 i built a nice lead but some random person joined so I had some lag which put me right back into @Michaelx99 @Ezend92 and @LambreX . Then when coming into the pits i was around 1km/h over the speed limit and got a drive through. Then I just went full on recovery mode and pushed while continuing my s-m-m strategy. I had some great battles with @Thompson @Mulchian @iZi and @Snarf Snarf before nearly getting @LambreX . It was really fun to battle my way up to p4 and nearly finishing on the podium after that drive through and i hope i can continue my good form in monaco. Here is my highlights video and congrats to @OmegaIV for the win.
