    Well considering the beginnings of the flu started hitting me last night and I got bugger all sleep I'll take 8th :)

    With the flu hitting me I don't think I was quite as quick as I could have been, but still had some great fun battles throughout the race, really good stuff.

    Also just want to give an apology to @Andrew Waring for the contact into the chicane at the end of the second sector, tried to brake as late as I could (more or less around my normal marker) to fight for the position and just locked the fronts, nothing I could once that happened.

    Fantastic racing across the whole field, well done everyone. Hoping I can join next Friday's mini race to be part of the action.

    I deemed it as a racing incident, I know you would never do that on purpose.

    Thanks @quicksilver384 ! My overtake on you gave the commentators a chance to talk about my massive cajones.

    Could've been a way better result for me, hadn't there been that unfortunately placed tire stack. But I went from 40 seconds behind 24th to finishing 12th, so that's something. :)

    Massive congrats to @Ross McGregor for the first half an hour it felt like death by paper cut, your consistency was insane, if I didn't nail every corner id lose a tenth here a tenth there, it was incredibly tough, so I'm definitely exhausted now, I might need to take up running or something if I'm doing to stand a chance :)

    And very unlucky @Andrew Waring was looking like a good battle!

    I look forward to the next round!

    A great evening, thanks again for organizing it, and for all the people joining! Probably my best race ever, even if I still made mistakes, including too many cuts and a drive through! I did not lift each time I got wide... ;) Got to battle with so many people! That was fun.
    Big congrats to my teammate @Shawn Jacobs with an awesome 2nd place, well done! :thumbsup:
    Now I have to watch the stream... :)

    Haha, thanks. Yeah it was very tight at the start, all those chicanes require a lot of concentration! I thought you or Andrew would get pole for sure- I'd never done a 57.0 until qualie!

    Cheers all- excellent broadcast too!

    I know how Steam, AMS, and the servers work (for the most part).
    I will continue to try to solve this issue as it appears that this is not a RaceDepartment issue.
    Anyway, congrats to everyone else who raced and I hope to see you next round.

    It goes by time rather than laps, so once the 80 minutes is up the chequered flag comes out.
