    Well, a small grid that developed into two races! Bjorn and Dennis had their fun fighting for the win, whilst myself and John had equal fun battling for that last podium place ;)

    I had never driven a lap of this track before I joined the server for the start of the practice session, so I was happy to race and learn at the same time. It's always interesting when you are taking whole seconds off your lap time just before going into the race :)

    Both races had a great battle with John. He pulled a brilliant move around the outside of T2 on the first lap of the second race - his car was going sideways around me, fantastic stuff!! We tangled on lap 6 but continued racing hard to the end.

    Only four participants, but great fun. :D

    On a more serious note and maybe not the place to mention it, but whilst I have been on a recent break from Race 07 I have read with interest on these pages about the drop off in participation for club races. I understand the various reasons why it may be happening but I still think it's a shame because you are a great group of guys and I think something will be lost if Race 07 club ends. If we do move sim, perhaps we should try and take the jump together? Anyway, hopefully numbers will pick up again enough so that we can continue here. I myself will try and commit to the odd GT and TC race as well as Mini Fridays (depending on when I get the time with my family commitments etc).

    Race 07 may be old but it has a lot still going for it! Let's keep it going guys!

    Anyway - sorry for the mumblings. :laugh:

    Yesterdays event really helped me with the car today. The laps completed during that event also helped immensely. Bjorn and Kevin did fantastic, coming in cold for today's races.

    Bjorn messed up his Q lap giving me the pole. I did well but he had been better in practice.

    R1: Bjorn took the lead from a a great launch and off we went.nose to tail at ridiculous speeds through the sweeping corners. During a pass on L1 I nicked Bjorn and slowed to allow him to regain the lead at S/F. I was sure he was pulling a way when he went wide at T1 and I gained a few seconds on him. From that point on, every mistake I made brought Bjorn closer when at the start of the last lap we crossed the S/F line together. We were close the last lap, going through several corners side by side and only three car lengths apart at the finish!

    R2: Bjorn again tore up the grid to an early lead, Kevin and I following. All of us were quite close for the opening laps and after a bit of side by side racing in L3 I was able to move a head of Bjorn. I kept hammering away because Born is usually fast but he appeared to be holding back and waiting for me to slam a barrier while trying to stay in the lead. I mean, isn't that what usually happens? At the halfway, Bjorn had the bad luck, dropped back and there wasn't enough time for a good chase. Kevin and John were not that far behind, a great showing for the small grid!

    Come on guys, we all know that with a larger grid I'd be nowhere near the front. We still have your favorite races, come play!
