    Oh my, this is gonna be fun. And demanding. But that's good, right? :)

    After Brno, the tyres (front left in particular) are reaaaally prone to overheating again, so the normal base setup won't work once more.

    Anyways, I'm in, let's see how many 'nah, that minor bump into the barriers wasn't so bad' make a suspension damage (or worse :cautious:)

    Great fun :)

    I practiced a fair bit yesterday and it paid off quite well - was quite a bit ahead in P1/2 and decided to use quals fuel aaand wait for everyone to finish so I could estimate how much risk I gotta take - made it to pole :)

    Started fairly good and although Nelson was hanging on, passing on this track is.. well.. complicated, and as I was building a gap tenth by tenth, I didn't worry too much. When Nelson suffered an harder impact after the chicane, the gap grew a bit and I concentrated on staying away from the barriers and calming my front left tyre. The latter one didn't work out too good, but I still made it to the finish ;)

    Starting from behind in race #2, I managed to pass Gundars and Dennis during the first laps until a small tap from Dennis spun me around - turning the car on Göteborg seems to be almost as difficult as passing ;) Managed it, went on and pushed a bit harder in order to close the gap and maintain a chance - turned out I pushed a bit too hard, as I hit the wall after the chicane somewhere in lap5/6 and broke my suspension - DNF :(
    However, that allowed me to watch you guys racing, and that was quite a lot of fun... Mark vs Gundars, Nelson vs David, pack back together, Gundars vs Mark vs Dennis, Nelson breaking something, David vs Nelson, David passing Nelson in the last turn - great stuff! :D

    Thanks for racing everyone, thanks for organising Dennis, see you next time!

    WHEW! I"m glad that one is on the books. Usually we like a lot of cars on the grid but,,,,maybe the six of us was a good number :O_o:

    I agree with Gundars, Race one was fun but it wasn't close. Race two was bumper to bumper and door to door for many of us and I think it's amazing that my hit on Bjorn was the worst and just about only incident in either event.

    Thanks to those that came out!
