Hey everyone, I'm afraid I'm going to have to pull out.
I suddenly have way too much going on in private life& work to be able to enjoy dedicating the time into practice & structural racing on sunday.
I've had a lot of fun throughout the seasons (even though my results were sh*t :eek:) but when I play games now it's usually for 30 minutes to sit down and release some stress, and I can't put myself into the dedication of having to practice for a race. I'll just be a bumper car for others during the race without practice, and that's not what I want.

Apart from that I'm also starting my Thesis in 2 weeks, so any time remaining will be gone by then.

Sorry for pulling out, hope you all have fun during the remaing races!

Qualified 8th
Race 6th

Enjoyed that. Considering it started raining on lap 12, and the inters didn’t work until lap 26, was a very weird race. I had 0 practice again, I’m guna try put 3-4 hours into USA this week.

Well done to the winner and podiums. I think 2 more laps and I’d of won

Q: 6th
R: 3rd

The one and only valid Qualifying lap I set was an warm up lap. So that didnt go as planned.

In the race I was stuck behind the medium and soft runners. Later in the first stint I wanted to keep up with them and stretch my SS to lap 10/11.
Pitted for the Softs as I thought I had to pit one more time to the inters.
Was surprised the rain stayed out and that everyone had to pit for the drys.

@pete day and @Bashful4 closed in on me and I knew that I wasnt going to win as I had six seconds of penalties.

Made a mistake at the long right and that put me behind them into third.
Happy with the result. See you all next week.

R: 2nd


My inicial strategy was Softs and Mediuns because on a pratice that i have done my SS tyres started to overeating on lap 6. When in Qualify i saw that the rain was coming so i made my qualy in Mediuns with a good time.

On the race i just try to keep up with the front guys, i was surprised that much of you guys could get the SS tyres so long, the rain that should come never came so that put some of you with problems, after some pit stops, i endup being 2nd behind @pete day and in front of @Carcanon. On the last few laps my Soft tyres started to give me problems, however i could keep the 2nd place. Good race for me.

Only @alexP and myself were on the SS if I remember it correctly. I did not have much trouble with the tyre temps or wear till lap 8/9.
