  15. Great race, although I barely had any fight. The lap times were quite close, specially during race.

    Qualified 4th out of 5.
    On the start Samuel spun in front of me and I had to avoid, crashing a little and losing some time. Thus Mick overtook both of us.

    On lap 7 I caught up with Mick and passed him on the straight. Seeing the replay, I gave way too much room for him on the good line (I did not want to retake the outside and touch him), I entered T1 from very very bad angle and lost the rear, and with it, 5 seconds and two places, now I was last.

    Lap 8 caught up again with Mick. I was not trying to overtake him, but he was quite slow on the slowest turn. However, his line and mine at that turn were quite different (and our lap times almost identical, which suggests to me we are both doing it slightly wrong? but each in our way). I ended up in parallel to him on the exterior and him not touching the apex... decided to go straight to avoid crash. Yet again last.

    Lap 11, getting near Mick. Pushing like hell to shave barely hundredths of second each lap. Too early on the throttle, slight oversteer, grass, dammit, lost 15 seconds. This was my only real (big) mistake in 40 minutes, and probably prevented me from having the most entertaining fight ever.

    Lap 19 Samuel enters pits? Gain one place and around 20 sec over him. Still pushing but Mick keeps pretty much exactly my same speed.

    Lap 20-22 Mick made some mistake and I see him again. But no way to get under 2 seconds from him to try to get his drift.

    Lap 31, with Mick just in front of me, Samuel finally recovers from his pit stop. He gets a go at the main straight and overtakes me on the interior at T1. I could have covered it, or go fer the apex and he probably would have had to back off, but he was clearly faster than me and would get me later anyway, so I took a wide line to avoid any incident. 5th and last again.

    Seconds later, I see his car teleporting a few meters and then going straight. Bad way to gain a place for me.

    I keep pushing for the final 2 laps, but with the little lost time with Samuel and the startle of his teleporting Mick has gained a couple extra seconds, no way to get him.

    Finished 4th, about +40 seconds from the winner Davy, which for a 40 minute race I think is not bad at all.

    Mr. Aspinal, I hope to see you at next event, with a bit more luck we can have some amazing battles, considering our almost identical laptimes.
     
  16. Thanks gents, I enjoyed myself. While watching the replay I could see Mick narrowly missing my rear end on the first lap due to my quirky entry into that tricky tight corner. This is exactly what I meant in previous post while asking for patience :) I am also wondering whether Samuel's pitstop was planned or not. He was definitely lot quicker in race than in quali relatively to my pace ...

    I was strugling in qually with setup. managed to change it in warm up. (less wings meant it wasnt bottoming out and the suspension could do its job) decided last minute to have a pitstop stratagy. it didnt work. sorry for the spin at the start. I got a good initial get away then got too gready. had a good race pushing hard and not making too many errors after the first lap. then GSC decided to minimize and sent me into the wall.
     
  18. Some highlights, I learned a couple of things playing with the replay editor.
