    Aaaaand I crashed someone. I believe it was Frank van Oeveren. I completely messed up the last corner and lost grip on entry so I tried to push like mad on the exit. The car in front of me ran wide and was rejoining the track while I struggled with understeer driving out of the corner. The result was rather terrifying and must have pissed of the other driver. Big apologies, very poor driving by me. :sick: I was terrified to hit the brakes and lose the back end of the car so I only released the throttle a bit instead of really slowing down. :(

    Very, very sad.

    Amazing race, finally I nailed the pits and no stupid mistakes (apart from the 1'st lap, sorry). Great racing with everyone and thanks to all who I lapped for clean driving.

    Best race out of the whole championship so far!

    Cheers!

    Can only congratulate @Discovery.Tv to the win, dominant victory! :)

    Have had a busy week and didn't practise before earlier today, had just run the chicane layout a bit 2 weeks ago.

    Quali was a lot better than expected but sadly didn't get that pole point.

    In the race I did a different strategy just to try it, I knew I couldn't win on 1 stop as my tyre wear is so **** so Erhan would have pulled away in the end of the stints. I could have made a 1 stop work but pretty point-less as I know I wouldn't have had a shot at winning.

    The track sadly didn't have enough tyre wear to make Erhan struggle so it was difficult to gain time but atleast I gave it a go! Overall I'm happy with 2nd! :)

    I really not like these tracks that are on the limit of doing a set of tyres for 40 minutes as my tyre wear just isn't any good at all so I either do 1 stop and lose time in the end of the stints or I go for 2 stops and need to gain loads of time... :/

    Congrats to the podium! You guys are way to fast for me!

    For me, definitely my best race because I kept it on the track with decent times. I found a nice spot behind the group in front of me and was just waiting for one or more to make a mistake and/or wear their tyres out. I gained a few spots because of the guys up front fighting. I wasn't pushing hard and saving my tyres. I had the right strategy, I had plenty of tires at my pits, and at the end of the race. Took home my first points of the Championship! WOOOHOOO!

    Unfortunately, I'm not that happy because for as well as I raced, I made one screw-up that cost me at least 4 and maybe 6 positions. Even though I thought I pressed it, my pit limiter didn't take and I ended up with a stop/go penalty. That cost me 30s in pit time plus slow pit entry/exit speeds :(.

    Now I have some points, the next goal is a top 10 finish!

    Great race, was really happy with my qualifying lap as it was a new pb so I was really happy with 3rd.

    Start of the race went smoothly, was able to hang on to Hampus and Erhan for a bit but slowly started to drop back, with Tamas keeping me honest just behind. The first 30 minutes went quite well found my self in a bit of clean air and just did my best to keep it clean and try and conserve tyres, no idea how Erhan does it, I stopped pretty much dead on mid race and only had 1% left.

    After the stops found myself in 2nd but Hampus caught me up in fresher tyres and I decided no point in fighting him and just to secure third. Little did I know Franklin had other idea's, from 6 seconds back with 10 minutes to go he was able to catch me on the 2nd last lap and easily got me coming out of the last corner.

    From there I just nursed my tyres for the last lap and crossed the line with 1% left in 4th. Cant complain at all, coming into this never would have thought I'd get so close to a podium :)

    Great racing all, great chat on TS and congrats to the podium!!!!

    Bring on Bathurst!

    My race was horrible, connection issues from the start and a final disconnect with strange artifacts half way the race. I was really annoyed as even tho I couldn't get a proper race going, I was having a lot of fun!

    Sorry for the scare Jose, step on some grass with rear wheel and lost control of the Mini, then it was a nice flight with a perfect landing, I put a S&G to shorten the circuit :laugh:, and nothing at the end of 18th.
    Beautiful dances with Bram, Jose, Frank, Craig were very intense at times but great fun.

    Congratulate to Podium and Staff RD.
