    Some great racing to watch, well done to all the racers. Really good driving from Shawn Jacobs to finish fifth with a heavily damaged front of the car, well done.

    Well done everyone who finished tonight, that was a tough, tough race. Qualifying was pretty close, and I kept banging in laps right until the end as I knew a 54.3 wasn't comfortable in this company, led away from pole with Shawn in close proximity for a long time until we got into some traffic and I was able to break out the tow. Stayed out a couple of laps past the halfway mark and notice Geoffrey was trying an undercut- which ended up being a good call as he emerged a net 2nd. Another great race from Geoffrey is extremely pleasing to see!

    After the pit stop I was able to focus 100% on saving tyres and had a big enough gap to err on the side of caution when dealing with lapped cars. However, there were still a few dodgy moments, so I can't stress enough that the best way to let a car through is on the straights- and not just before a high speed corner!:thumbsup:

    Congrats to Nick & Geoffrey on their podiums.

    Cheers all

    Difficult race with all the blue flags wheel having the same (or a little more) pace than the "blue flagger". You let them pass but you are fighting for your race too (with the similar pace...). Dont know, its complícated in my opinion.

    Suddenly was next to @PicoBp and saw you out (i didnt feel nothing at all in my car and dont remember doing nothing extrange...).

    Anyway, being blueflagged in this track is a pain in the ass and me at least just try to get out of the way of the faster drivers (because the spotter starts saying blue flags blue flags 300 meters before and it kinda put unexperienced drivers like me a bit (read a lot) nervous.

    Congrats to Ross and all who raced!

    You were 2 laps behind me and been fighting with me for approximately 8-10 laps. I was in P1 in the race in that phase. When you say suddenly been side by side (spotter???), I passed you a corner earlier in the hairpin for probably the 4th time. You punted me off from the outside line in the braking zone, costing me 6 seconds at the incident, 11 seconds damage, and a drive-through penalty as a result of not being able to turn in the damaged car properly to the pits and "speeding" at the line. In summary, I lost about 4 places, and a bunch of championship points. Would have been a clear top 5, had you realized that you should let me pull away and keep a distance. :O_o:

    At the same time, I would like to thank and congratulate to everyone else, as you all handled blue flags in a gentleman fashion, without causing neither the lapping guy, nor yourself major time. It was a real honor to see such a proper behaviour in a short and tough track like this. ;)

    Not a perfect race but definitely better than the coughing and throwing up last time.

    Was some epic battles right thru out the field tonight.
    Apologies to C Sasu, tap on last corner before pit entry was not expecting to catch up so fast.

    A race to forget personally, BUT having said that, had some nice racing with @PicoBp:thumbsup: including doing nearly a lap side by side!! Also in the first half of the race good battles with @KoshaPashkin who had to put up with some dodgy driving by me at the beginning resulting in contact.:whistling: Apologies for that, as you drove perfectly especially when our positions reversed!:thumbsup:
    Grts to the podium, and especially to my teammate @Paul Joseph who after falling to the back after the opening laps made a great comeback through the field;).

    Just wanted to say sorry. Maybe Im was supposed to slow for a lap or something, but all the ones who lap me usually go waaaay faster than me and go ahead easily. I just had a spin few laps before and was trying to do as fast laps as I could. Just doing my race. Thought you were out of tires or something because i was faster in some turns. I repeat that was just trying to do my race and when all flagged me i just went to a side and slowed a lot. Im sorry but it was my pace, didnt even do my PB time today.

    And for the crash...i dont remember changing my line or so. Didnt even feel nothing on my wheel neither car. Again sorry, didnt want to harm you neither anyone. I try to be pretty clean and lose looot of time when blue flagged because i go clearly of line. I think this case was just a case of pace and probably my fault for not slowing few laps or something i have done.

    I obviously am not good, just semi mid field, just try my best and not to disturb the pros. Sorry for that, will try to slow a few seconds more next time im blue flagged.

    The straw for my margarita got jammed into the lime and trying to get anything through it kinda sucked. Other than that it seems I had a race long battle with Cailin @Dexter and while we actually got more than a lap between us at one point on the last lap we were within once second till the last corner. Sorry for contacts guy, nothing intentional.

    Apologies to @alexSchmurtz I got most lapping drivers right but I really found myself lost as you came up behind.

    Lapping drivers must get bad info about how close they are to catching a car ahead. Lights are flashing way before a driver gets a blue flag and it can take quite a while after that before you're close enough for that driver to affect your lap. The blue flag does not mean pull over/slow now! Not to seem nasty but I think some can't figure out when a driver is giving you room without him losing time himself.

    I did have an enjoyable race, I hope you all did too :)
