    I was practicing for next weeks event and so thought to drive the car in this weeks as well making as few changes in gearing as I had to. It was working really well! I had no plan to be competitive.

    Opted out of Q.

    I had a really good race going with Janko, Gundars and Dan for a bit. A number of times racing closely with Janko. It's nice when there's someone that is your speed so you an feel like you're really "there"! I thought I hit Janko while making a pass so I waited and when he passed our race continued but then he paused at trackside. We were, I was, having a good race, no holding back, pushing hard to get in front, rare for me. I pitted to leave the race.
     
  19. @Dennis Phelan,
    no, we hadn't had contact I just outbraked myself as my tires were at 60% at that turn (lap 7) and 37% at lap 13 when I made a pit stop. Tire wear at this track was just too much for me:confused:. When you pited I thought you opted for 2-pit strategy (....I sure could use 2 pit stops at this race:geek:), but soon I realized it was going to be another lonely drive to the end:sleep:. But I did have a good race and gave my best:sneaky:, even if it lasted only for several laps.


    As always, thanks for hosting and see you and other drivers on the track.

  20. In these WTCC events I've done over the last couple of months generally people have not been pitting.

    WTCC 45 mins DO NOT PIT.

    Today, I was determined to see it through no matter how bad the wear got.

    WTCC 45 mins DO NOT PIT.

    Saw Justin in the pits, figured it was a rare mistake.

    WTCC 45 mins DO NOT PIT.

    Then Arunas. Then Dan.

    WTCC 45 mins DO NOT PIT.

    Wear was way less worse than Road America.

    WTCC 45 mins DO NOT PIT.

    Saw it through to the end with no stops and one stupid off. Got a podium! :cautious:

    WTCC 45 mins SOMETIMES PIT.
