    Awesome practice race for next Wednesday!

    Thanks again for organizing, Dennis :thumbsup:. Seemed fast after practicing extensively, and qualified on pole. I think prior to this week, I was always looking at it from an open wheel point of view. With the slower touring cars, I was able to refine my line greatly :ninja:.

    had an excellent start, but Nicolas quickly caught me and we had a battle :cool:. I fell back behind him a little after the half way point, I spun out to third :mad:. Got going, and I think I put in the fastest lap of the entire race :D. I think I could have won, but my inconsistency was my own enemy :cautious:.

    Looking forward to next Wednesday :sneaky::thumbsup:.

    I worked on this car on a number of days. It hurt that I was driving it, I know the places where I "held back" and where the car could have performed batter if I could handle the changes to make it so. But I could drive it consistently at a competitive, middle of the pack drive and happy with that.

    I did qualify on the slow side, forced that.

    A fun race in the beginning with Michel in front of April and I as we both waited for an opportunity.
    @Belet Michel are you using a keyboard or "controller for steering rather than a wheel? You appear to be grossly over controlling the car in some situations. Dealing with it, just curious!

    A possibility turned into an opening and I took it to get past Michel. I tried to maintain a pace to stay ahead of him but I'm not used to doing that and so he got ahead of me again. Another opportunity taken and I was almost good to the end of the race but for two spins in the last corner :(

    yes dennis, i use a "xbox" controller but it's difficult to control.
    I think i can't do better in face of the wheels!
    In fact i finished with no more fuel in thank, that i slow down in the two last laps, for finishing.
    80l was not enough!
    If i could setup my cars better, i think do my best, but its difficult !
