    Only 1 lap, we made it 1 lap longer then our competitors but we got in with less than 0.5L so we're going to be carefull taking that risk again

    Not a good start of the race. Penalty from last race then not so good pace on green track, but very good pace in the 2nd stint, but a penalty at the end of it and few mistakes in stint 3. Stint 3 made all the hard work to regain time undone :(
    But more than 21 hours to go :D

    Stupid rF2 gave me a ffb mult of 1 instead of .5. That meant a lot of hard work and some wired ffb :(

    I had a really scary moment yesterday. A P2 car ported towards me and we had contact. I nearly peed my pants at 350kph you suddenly have something directly in front of you. Between the shots is only 1 second and then contact as the P2 car was like 30 or 40kph slower.

    It's a very sombre morning for RedShift Racing this morning; we have had some terrible luck, that has seen both cars drop from their potential podium positions. :( Let's hope that we'll be able to claw a few places back in the 4 and a half hours that remain.

    Just got back home.

    Seems like a lot happened.

    But be careful in the last lap. I've got some experience with that lately. :p
    - Disconnected with just 3 corners to go.
    - Jumped the fence in the chicane just before the finish line.
    - Spin out in the last lap.

    Just a tip:

    If you have some discomfort from all those hours sitting in your sim rigs.
