    throttle failure... apparently i was driving every session wondering why i was so slow... then in the race i saw people flying by me at the start, then i knew what went wrong.. apparently i was driving with only 60% of the throttle in all sessions... how i didnt recognize that is beyond me.........

    I am so so sorry Sander. You must be so pissed off. That was the most amateur thing I've ever done.

    Thanks to the organizers for tonights race, I had an incredibly lonely race after the first 2 or 3 laps right up until the last lap when after letting the leaders by one of them spun at turn 1 and gave me a tap but no harm was done, in those early laps some one spun ahead of me after the chicane and I went off avoiding him and I think it was Teemu who I collected, sorry mate there was nothing I could do, I'm happy finishing 10th and getting a point :)

    No problem I don't think we even touched or if we did I had lost the control already, I had damage from lap 1 as I had contact with Leitner when his car bounced back to the track after hitting the wall and I also had contact with Asad who spun ahead of us (I was already avoiding him but then he moved straight in front of me) and I lost the control on the next corner because of the suspension damage.

    The only way for you to loose the title is when I win and you finish 7th or lower. I'm 18 pts behind Jim is 28 so he's out. So congrats on the title :)

    Lap 1 pretty much ended my race with suspension damage, Eugene spun on one of the fastest corners. David ended up with a nice look at the floor of my car :p

    In battles my car wouldn't stay straight so kept going on grass. Letting people through was hell because by midway through or there abouts my tyres were suffering on one side. Then I had to let multiple cars so sorry I was moving really awkwardly. Tried to get back on track but cars behind so much more speed so I just thought "f*ck it" and went into the wall :D I would've gained maximum 1 more place as a result of others DNFing so I achieved pretty much the maximum with that damage. Now I have some time to practice for Istanbul so fingers crossed.

    P.S. Apologies to David for that incident at turn 1 :p
