    Very fun race. Heck of a time fighting @Chris Stacey! I almost had you on qualifying, but didn't quite manage my last-second 'Banzai lap'.

    Yup lots of fun. I went back and looked at the replay and Chris and Joao had a really good battle....looked like less than a 2 sec gap for half of the race.

    Also learned something important, I had a shorter gears than either Chris and Joao. I set the gearing so 6th got me reline at the end of long straights, but I suffered on other parts of the track because the lower gears were just too short. I was having trouble shifting into second without losing it, so the slow corners I was taking in 3rd, and a couple of corners I was taking in 4th....including that long right hander on the back side.

    I hate it when I learn these things *after* the race :)
