    my throtle again. Man am i furious with it. Good at practice, no problems at qualify, well on warm up. Then race started and accelaration problems too. Impossible to race that way...

    Quali: Binned it on the outlap, didn't set a time. 11th.

    Race 1: Lost it out of turn 1, broke suspension and lost rear wing. 10th.

    Race 2: Was doing OK until I tagged the Lada, which then meant @Björn hit my arse (my fault; I slowed down too much). Limped home 7th.

    Don't like the track, but this was still fairly fun :)

    Cycling through my usual cars (Leon, Lada, even tried the Cruze, which was okay), I couldn't quite find a fitting one, even getting out the ol' C30 again. So, why not try something new? The Alfa was alright, but the Peugeot felt at home over here, shaving off at least a second of each of the other cars' times.
    Qualified in P4 behind the Movie-Go trio and had a good start into race #1, despite rumors talking about low-ish start performance in the Peugeot going 'round.

    I then built up a gap to the pack of Nuno, Istvan and Alex and... well.. watched the three green cars rumble away. I got closer towards the end of the race, but as far as I got it, that was bump-induced. P4 it was.

    Had a lousy start into race #2, and Aaron slightly bumping into me in T1 didn't help me gain positions, as well ;) Regained speed soon afterwards, but when Dave & Istvan touched in... well, one of those bazillion turns, I couldn't react in time and got into Dave's side.
    Post-waiting and now with slight suspension damage, I carried on and got up to P5 again, slowly closing in on Dennis - running on better-preserved tyres, I'd say I would've needed another lap to get past, but then again, I would've run out of fuel in sector 1 of said lap, so P5 is fairly alright in my book :D

    Thanks for racing, guys!

    This track always give me problems and no matter which car I'm in the result is the same.
    I mean, it's a nice track but all the corners are a bit too much corner, know what I mean? As Reggie said, better for a bike.

    Plop, Cruze, Sure, it runs, lol.

    I practiced a race pace in quali, looking for consistency and tire care rather than speed so I wanted to place myself properly.

    R1: My pace worked out, no one around, unfortunately I ended up on the front row for R2, no way out of it.

    R2: Off like stink! Reggie soon caught me and then Arron, finally Istvan. I did my best to keep a good pace and save tires, I think it worked out in the end for both races. Maybe I should drive like that more often :)

    Totally outdone on TS by the AC boy's but we were still great!

    Race 2 lap 1 @ Brno on board

    @Dennis Phelan i was talking with Marc Marquez Crew Chief and he said he will let u do a lap on his Repsol Honda Moto GP Bike on Friday before the Mini race as long as u have your elbows trailing the ground going into turn 1:)

    The Mini's should be good fun around Brno :);):confused:

    Bit of a struggle, were these races. The fronts, especially the left, got too hot and wore too much to be able to stay at a decent pace past lap 5, and dropped of completely during lap 7. Had a nice battle with @Nuno Rodrigues early on in Race 1. I caught @István Milbich at around lap 5, couldn't get by, and then my tyres went off and he pulled away again. Finished 6th
    Race 1 I started 3rd, got a great start and was in 1st and on the inside turning into the first corner when I got a tap from @Reggie Blain Snr which sent me across the gravel and into the barrier. Now last with some suspension damage, I clawed back a few places and and a nice race with @RaceProUK and @Björn after their mishaps. Finished 6th again.

    Brno always looks like it could be a good track on paper, but it's not a terribly enjoyable place. I remember the F3000 and WTCC races there being rather stale, maybe it is better for bikes!
