    I think I can handle this in my good ol' Astin Martin, so I'll choose this race this week please :D
    (I'm gonna try to stick to one race per week, so as to not overwhelm myself)

    Considering my internet connection's remaining unstable... rather unlikely.
    ISP's no help so far, so I'll go ahead and reinstall my machine after this post to clear up any issues on my side - might hop on tomorrow to see how it works out.

    I'm sorry, but I definitely won't be making it. .. I'm just on the wrong sleep pattern this week.

    As I hadn't trained this week due to my current internet situation, I was expecting to be as consistent as my connection - and we both delivered ;)

    Surprising myself, I got up to a nice pace, and the Egg was a dream to race with - snatched P2 in Quals and... got disconnected in warmup. Oh well.

    However, thanks to the two-server setup, I went on to the GTP2 server, got a few more laps in, got a few more disconnects in and was allowed to start in P2 (due to setting the best time in P1 and... randomness, I suppose? :D)

    Had a nice start and took the lead for the first lap, until I missed my brake point into T1, went onto the grass and re-joined for a nice midpack battle with Matthias, Dennis and Nelson.
    A few laps down, I likely caught Dennis off guard by braking early into T1 and he spun me around - got by both Reggie Snr and Matthias afterwards, again, and brought home P4.
    While I was gaining some time on Nelson doing so, it wasn't enough and another missed braking point into T1 didn't help ;)

    Thanks for racing everyone, see you around next time - hopefully with a more stable connection :)
