    Quali: Decent. 8th.

    Race: Not the best start; dropped a place to @Reggie Blain Snr, but gained one when @Alex Odell ran wide out of Redgate. Had a good battle with S James, and a great tussel with @Alex Odell, though ultimately fell behind them both. Pitted halfway; after that, I was just hotlapping. Gained a bonus position when S James retired, and ended a very respectable 6th :)

  18. Short race report here, with a successful result ;):thumbsup:

    Qualified third, I showed up earlier than usual to practice (about half an hour before official practice began). Track was easy enough to learn, and was near the top of the charts when everyone showed up.

    Had a brief off in the first turn of the first lap... this is becoming tradition for me :laugh:. Lost a spot to Nuno whom I passed on the back stretch one the very same lap. I soon settled into a nice rhythm as I saw I would be unable to catch Matthias and Reggie. Pit stop was very smooth, and had two offs at turn four late in the going, but I was able to save it both times. I brought it home in third which I consider spectacular considering how many fast guys this race had :thumbsup:!

    And for anyone who is wondering, I used default setup with steering lock increased to 16 degrees, and bias moved to 58 in the front. Considering my result as opposed to Bjorn's, maybe I am the faster and more consistent driver :D

  19. No practice at all, no setup. Just arrive 5 min before qualify so race tactic would be go with carefull 100%.
    Because of that i was surprised by getting 5th (i guess) in qualify.
    The race start was fine althout some gaining and losing positions :-P
    After that, got the 4th place and been there alone for so long that i fall asleep. So made a mistake and Alex took it away for me.
    As i was going mad after him, one driver from the back got in the midle and didnt help. No problem what so ever, but could be a happy ending
    Congrats winner and all drivers!

    Thanks for the big grid, everyone (especially considering we're running a mod track!) - looking forward to the numbers we'll hopefully reach with next week's Monza events :)

    Not gonna go into a long race report, still gotta get some stuff done for the weekend and my race wasn't that spectacular ;)
    Hadn't trained at all since I didn't really expect to make it, so off into the cold water it was - with Nelson mentioning he was running the default setup and my own one being a bit too unstable for the track, I decided to give the default a go, too.
    Worked pretty alright in P1/Q/warmup, not with the fastest guys, but still hanging on to the upper third of the grid ;)
    However, I didn't pay attention to gears much (they seemed alright, same as with my setup, so why worry) and other than checking for presence, I didn't care much about my tyres, as well - big mistake, as I was missing massive top speed on the straights and my tyre temps were slightly off, as well - whoops.
    Still, I had a few nice (short) battles with those passing and longer one with Reggie Snr towards the end of the event :)

    See you next week :)

    Well, I was consistently slow ;) (..and haven't hit a wall in a while :p)
