  3. TS 134 Peter Vs Kurt.
    Approaching Turn 3 braking zone I crashed heavily into Kurt. 100% my responsibilty. I am very sorry Kurt :( Please forgive...
    Apologies to all, Bob, Nico, etc who also had to evade me. Not a good start to the season for me. I will do better.
     
  4. I also clipped Eliezer exiting turn 10 mid race and spun all by myself at turn 1 close to in front of Nicolas. Sorry for that.

    No incident.
    Nothing to complain about. Kurt ran in to me, but he was at the time an innocent passenger. This is racing;)

    Peter now you owe me a few seconds in suspension repairs. I'll claim the interest from the collective time-loss account at an appropriate occasion. I'm just kidding, it can happen to the best, and it did:)

    Didn't feel a thing mate:) no worries

    I had a small touch with Enzo's rear wheel in the first stint, my fault for a half arsed passing attempt, it knocked Enzo a bit sideways but he held on to it, I hope it didn't damage you Enzo

    And I spin all on my own in turn 8, lap 42 whilst in P5, threw away a good result:(

    I enjoyed our fight "Mega". I did open just enough for you to fit in on the inside. Unforgiving racing from me there. I take 30% of the blame. Is that all right with you? It's no fun racing without any resistance, am I right? So I apologize for my part in that contact, sorry mate.

    I had a moment in T1 in the 2nd half of the race which left me travelling quite slowly on the exit. I then saw Sean in the mirrors spinning. At the time I was concerned that maybe he had tried to avoid me and lost it. After checking the replay there was much more room than I thought. Either Sean just made the same error I did on the same lap, or perhaps the distraction of seeing me ahead disturbed his concentration through T1. Sorry Sean if I did contribute!

    Lap 46, TS4035 - Contact with Helder

    I had a poor entry to T3 allowing Helder to get alongside (on my left, the outside). As we went into the right hander (T4) there was slight contact. I didn't feel it, but based on the sudden addition of 5 seconds to the gap I knew there must have a been a little.

    Helder apologised after the race and said he should waited for a better chance to overtake. I think he had every right to make a move when he did (I certainly wasn't planning to give him another better chance!!!). After watching the replay (my local replay) I think Helder was further in front of me than I realised at the time. In that situation I think I was still entitled to hold the inside line. If Helder had made the same move but stayed wide leaving me slightly more room on the inside I would certainly have had to leave him room on the inside at the bottom of the hill.

    Great battle Helder, I look forward to many more.
     
  20. No problem Eleizer,i saw you behind and i was trying to be super safe by leaving enough rom for Valter but then with the double tap by you from behind i though the Merkava must be on charge today :)
