Would prefer it wet, but since it's Texas I doubt it

Where do I even start what a race.....

Firstly from P9 on the grid I move up to second in a chaotic start. I then am hit by Pika and drop down to fifth. On the restart @B5NCO get spun and I move to fourth. I struggle on the SS tyres and @Flushie passes me before I am hit by Zhavior into B5NCO and into the wall. No front wing and well down on the field now. The safety car rescues my race and I am back on track. @bananajosh1 kills @washy03 out of the race in front of me. Josh then turns into me and spins me around. I have a great battle with Adibales for laps on repeat until i finally get past for good. Then I just keep it clean and try and get to the end on the mediums i pitted early for. @Flushie on new super softs breezed past for me p5 now but p6 was still great. Now final lap i am 75% wear and have no tyres left and right at the end @Squizza1990 gets a puncture so i move back to p5. @Mitch makes a late overtake on me for p5 and then i drop behind @denzamo due to my penalties but i recover brilliantly. Best race for me despite lap seven which definitely cost me a podium position. Shame about that but still my best result and finally a race finished and points. Bring on Mexico, Checo's home race!

mixed feelings

Got pole, I was on for a mid - low 36 but invalidated the lap and thought I blew the shot at pole so was relieved in that sense

race came and I got hit from behind by @GuytheGuy17 and rejoined down the pack, once the safety car came in I made a move on @kam but he slammed the door shut probably not knowing I was alongside, ended up facing the wrong way

made my way back through he pack, once I passed @Squizza1990 i set upon catching the front 2, got the gap down by 8 seconds to around 3 but made the call to back off to ensure I finished the race on them tyres, his proved to be a good call as I crossed the line with my tyres in the 90's

This summed up my race! Did it once with @B5NCO and promised to never make the mistake again!

I released the accelerator instead of the clutch!!!!!! Should be beside the renault battling for 4th there, instead im top right of screen being passed by everyone!

Lap 2 i put mediums on which put me dead last with falcon in 1st and then i was forced into going the whole race distance on them due to safety cars and track position. It very nearly gave me and unlikely 4th but my front right gave up on me.

Big blow to my championship hopes that puncture was! Great win for falcon again, real momentum this second half for you!

Results updated.

Had a terrible race. My shifts are falling at awkward times at the minute so it's a real struggle to prepare. Can't complain too much though, as it pays for all my toys ;)

This is my least favourite track so i am glad to move on.
