Probably one of the first races I’ve had to take part in.

Started off with a swollen hand, which made it hard to grip my wheel properly, the sound cut out at the start of the race so I had none of my engine noises. My Xbox just gave up giving up picture to my tv as the screen went black 4 times on lap 4-8 causing crashes and losing a lot of time. So I retired to not be a risk and was pretty angry at this point anyway, and then Xbox live disconnected at some point while spectating. I wasn’t at my Xbox so I don’t know when it disconnected. Don’t think it could have gone much worse!!!!

Wasn’t expecting much from this race, but guess fortune favours the brave !

Qualifying

Qualified 3rd, which was totally unexpected, so really happy with that.

Race

Had a great start and passed @Cinnamon Rage as he had a bad start and closed in on @Evilkatmobile going into the first corner. Pace was good for the next few laps but knew @Cinnamon Rage right up behind was faster. Held out as long as I could, then had a coming together on lap 5 or 6, at turn 1 and I spun out, putting me back to 3rd.
For some reason round about lap 22, @Evilkatmobile retired and pushed me to 2nd place where I finished.

Really happy with the result and think 2nd was more than I thought I would achieve around here, and was probably the best result I could’ve got today, as @Cinnamon Rage was to quick for me.

Congrats mate, you deserved it, and well done to @Atul987 for 3rd.

Hey @Cinnamon Rage, edited the race, would love to see your point of view. As you can see I couldnt see your front end next to me, which is why I was taking the corners, but no problem mate, think 2nd was the best I could get, as you were far quicker than me today?

Quali was awful only managed to get one lap in which got me P8, span out on all the other laps and even fucking outlaps

stayed in 8th after the start got sandwiched between @K04 and @xXMARKELiNXx thank got there was no front wing damage. Span in the middle sector and had a pretty boring race up until @Proulx2001 caught me up and we had a very good aggressive battle.

I was -1.02 heading onto last lap, hence why pace on 27/28 was so slow haha good fighting though

Hi @EditedFaun3698,

Here is the footage as promised. I'd felt I'd got significantly alongside and but when you came in tight on the apex I tried to back out (having to run up on the kerb) but there was just not enough room and you were slower on the Apex exit than I was expecting. Really unfortunate incident ? Hope you can see I wasn't trying to be reckless in the move.

PS. Tried uploading the video but apparently MP4 isn't an allowed extension, no idea why - it's the defacto standard file type for videos! Attached a dropbox link instead.

@mightydylan3224 - I'm not sure what happened last night, I sent out 5 invites between 7:45 and 8:00, I started the lobby, bang on 8:00PM as you had not joined, I'm not sure what happened but I definitely invited you, and it wouldn't let you join off other people, maybe there was an issue with your connection??

Fairly chuffed with P3.
Was my birthday Sunday so didnt have much time to practice.

Into the first corner, I was way too ambitious, and lost a bit of my wing, thankfully didnt cause any harm to any other driver. Then on lap 3, I fully binned it and lost my entire wing so had to pit. Went on to the mediums, and from there was picking up some good positions thanks to the undercut. Then went to the SS for my final stint. Was in P5, then @xXMARKELiNXx and @K04 had an incident which put me into P4. Caught up to Markelin in P3, and pulled off a nice overtaking move round the outside without any contact (i thought).
However, seeing Markelins video we touched. The contact was made on the left of Markelins car which caused him right wing damage... Not sure if thats possible.

Managed to just build a 3 second gap to my team mate behind to ensure I was on the podium!
