    oh my God. So many mistakes. The worst of them with Millet. Really really sorry as i was not counting touching u.
    Then several laps later as i was going 3rd, spun at last turn and got in pits with speed over limit ahahahha, got stop and go and full ahed. One or more two laps and another spin made me crash into the wall and start a barbecue in the mini. At that point i was waiting u guys with beer but no one show up.
    Once again sorry Millet.

    Quali: Reasonable lap for 8th.

    Race: Made a decent start, but overcooked it into T3, spearing across the apex; somehow managed to avoid everyone! Recovered and worked my way up, having a good battle with @Nelson Ullinskey on the way. After pitting, @Damo slowly caught me; another good battle over the last few laps. Ultimately too cautious going into the last turn on the last lap; @Damo took full advantage, passing round the outside, demoting me to 6th.

    Still a good result :)

    What a race, what a week - I'm going to miss the track.

    Lacking practice with the Mini both on the track and generally in recent weeks, I joined a bit early and got up to some speed, but couldn't quite get to Istvan's pace who was in 1st at the time. Switched to a different setups and found some more time, but by then, both Nelson and Reggie had joined the server and had caught up with the two of us easily.
    After some more position-shuffling between P1-4 during practice #2, it was qualifying time soon enough.

    Managing to score P2 with an extra-low-fuel-extra-late attempt, I had a good start into the race and having the inside, got by Reggie. Some early defensive driving made me keep P1 and during what was a nice fight, I even built up some tenths, most surprisingly.
    Closing in on pit time, Reggie finally got by once my tyres started to act funny - which also made me go for four tyres, a risk not too high, considering Istvan in 3rd was about 10s behind at the time.
    Unfortunately, a few laps post-pitting, I went too wide in T1 and took a short offroad detour, barely missing a tyre wall. While I was gaining the slightlies bit of time, it was far from enough to really get closer to Reggie, so P2 it was!

    Thanks for racing guys, see you at Vara!

    Great race. Good fun at the back with @Reggie Blain Snr . Definitely made the wrong call only changing 2 tyres though. Car was a bit of a handful by the end... Hopefully I can get a premium membership sorted soon but if not, its been a pleasure racing with you guys. Thanks :)

    Just back from "Margaritaville" with the wife but I'll try for a race report anyhow.

    We were all so close in laptimes, I felt my own best was only a fluke as I could never come close in each session. Last turn/first turn made such a difference and so difficult to get it right often enough. I think I was even faster in Warmup than I was in quali, that's what I mean.

    So I took the Nurb's setup and worked it to go fast, then I worked it so I could race it, I made 4th close to 5th so I could have options in those "special" corners. Played with going to 3rd half way around T1 as well and was ready for the race.

    I was totally amazed to see my position about of T1 and so happy to be still in it after T2 when Dave filled my screen for about 3 milliseconds! on his way thought the corner. I knew that as long as I drove in free air that I could stay on track. As soon as Damo caught up with me I pitted so I could still have a clear track and drive properly. Really surprised a few laps later when Nelson came out of the pit with Istvan! How had he made so much time after his "falter"? Anyhow, Istvan had some real troubles with tires and I guess a few others as well but Nelson just slowly took off and I kept track of those behind. The setup and pit stop strategy paid off and driving was a piece of cake to the end.

    Hoping the new 5 day schedule doesn't ruin daily participation. More racing for more people? YEEEEaaaah?
