I am not making this one - gutted, as I do enjoy it. Hopefully the last race I miss this season.

My best times a 1:06:1, could probably get into the 1:05's with a bit more practice. What times are everyone getting?

Quali - was average, 7th

Race - such a disappointment genuinely thought I had the pace to win that race with it being my best track. Climbed into 3rd before the 3rd sector, but @Evilkatmobile cars lagged and hit my front wing off and that was pretty much race over. I got a bit of joy out of that race on the final two laps when me and @EditedFaun3698 unlapped @Evilkatmobile and @Atul987 who were in 1st ans 2nd at the end.

My first thoughts halfway through this race was, "This is probably the most rewarding race I have ever done online", but guess that was wishful thinking before the inevitable happened!!!!!!!!

Qualifying

Qualified 4th, after no wet practice this week so really happy with that.

Race

Started on the softs and Got hit on the first corner, broke my wing, so I had 2 choices ;
1. Pit, and do a 3 stop
2. Stick to the original strategy
So did 25 laps with a broken wing, which was so rewarding after starting in 4th, after my broken wing, 6th, but then pitting in 4th, I knew I had a chance for a podium!
UNTIL,
I came out of the pits on lap 25 and proceeded to close down @xXMARKELiNXx as I was on new tyres. Coming out of turn 7 or 8 I had the run on him, thought he had pulled over to let me by, next thing i know Im in the wall. Not sure what happened, but after chasing a podium to finishing 7th in a race that I was really enjoying just sums up my season

Josh, that first corner was not cool mate, honestly that whipped out 3 of us into turn 1? I applaud your driving normally mate, but that was abit over aggressive.

sorry mate, again wasn't my intention. Good job you've basically already won the championship, still doesn't make it acceptable though

I have no issue with backmarkers overtaking to unlap themselves.
But doing it into the second to last corner was annoying as I had to back out of the corner and lost about half a second. I was going to let you past on the straight, not sure why it was necessary to do it there, as if I didnt back out it could've ruined both our races.

@Atul987 Never said you had an issue mate, didn't amount to anything so don't think it really matters. The reason I passed there was because I was chasing down EditedFaun and there's no way for me to know you were going to let me past on the straight. But I have trust in you to leave room unlike other drivers.
