Good race for me.

13th qualifying, 3rd race.

Was the only person to start on the mediums, had to do a hell of a stint up to lap 17, 70% wear but managed not to put it in a wall. Came out 7th place on softs but was surprised around lap 20 when the gaggle of cars in front of me who were on mediums pitted and then got up to 3rd. Don't think I did anything dodgy but we'll see if anyone moans at me. :D

Qualifying pole - 9/10 performance - 1.28.3 - Obviously can't grumble with that, if being picky I think a 28.0 was possible today.

Race 7th - 5/10 performance - Terrible wheelspin at the start, down to 3rd by turn 2. Then my race was effectively over when I spun out at turn 12. Was planning to one stop but went straight onto the mediums on lap 1.

Had no pace on the mediums and was being caught quickly by f1ben23 so just let him through. Pit for SS on lap 20 and started reeling people on the softs in, but got caught out by the car Infront braking into turn 10 and got wing damage which kind of ruined the last 9 laps a bit. (Sorry to whoever that was, think it was chesney?)

My drs failed from lap 15 onwards, i've never had that before!

And once again couldn't keep my race penalty free!

Congrats to Josh Emmins for the win after a few unlucky races, and everyone on the podium!

Overall 6/10 must try harder!

Started last, ran wide on my only lap in qualifying and ended up 2 seconds off the pace lol.

Started on the mediums, planning to take them to lap 15-16 or so, then f1ben was close to me and under pressure so I stayed out longer to try play some rear-gunner driving. Ended up pitting on lap 18 for softs when my tyres finally gave way.

Ran to the end on softs, had a fun little battle with f1ben, FrPhenix, Xtermin8or, and TOR Smith to eventually take 7th (or maybe even 6th.... I forgot already).

Good race all, and well done on the win Jemmin! I saw you come out of your pitstop and thought a change to mediums that early was brave but it certainly worked out.

Really happy with a 1.28.9 on softs which started me p5 (highest soft runner).

Good start kept my postion. Someone span in front and passed the French dude by lap 5 so in P3. Really good pace on mediums and a shame the 2nd guy lagged out. Last 10 laps was to try and just get as close as possible to Enmmins (gap was 7.3) and crossed the line in 2nd only (3.011) off.
