    First race I stayed on "softs" ..huge mistake, the last three laps I felt like I was ice skating..but still had some great battles.

    Maybe the car was a bit to much of a handful, lots of practice was needed.

    Congrads to the podiums, well deserved :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: ..I hope we get more drivers next week, we will be racing the mighty Abarth 500 :thumbsup:

    I did see you was one, of not the only running the softs. They had good pace at the start but I seen you falling away towards the end.

    First race in VR for me and its so much better in keeping me more consistent. I wasn’t the quickest but the consistency helped me hugely.

    Thanks again @Craig Dunkley !!

    Race 1 went very well*.
    Started from pole and managed to stay clear of everyone in 1st chicane,
    and after that i could create a gap and expand that gap to the finish.
    Was lonely but very tight and consistent.

    Race 2.
    Start again went well*.
    Made up a spot or 2 and then made a big mistake in the fast chicane onto the back straight.
    Ohohohoh that costed me sooooo much time :(.
    All by my own doing :whistling:.
    Thought of quiting but stuck in there and even
    managed to get back up to p3 in the end :cool:.

    If only i didnt spin after i went off track and when catching up with other drivers
    someone spun in front of me in 1st chicane( think i was overtaking Craig at the time),
    which costed another few seconds before the track was clear again.
    And still "only" finished 6 sec behind p2. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thx for setting it up Craig,and for posting the setup.
    I ended up using my own setup but with a few modifications ;).

    * In order to keep my rear wheels from spinning up i opted to start in 2nd gear.
    Went pretty well i must say,i've made some practise starts during practise and it felt good,:)
    so i decide to go for it.

    Cy all next time.

    @Craig Dunkley , I just watched the replay and now i know it was you that i clipped, hahahaha :D
    Was my own fault as i said on TS, didnt leave you enough room.:poop:
    Was hoping to slip by you in the same moment as Matt did.
    Sorry for that mr. Dunkley :).
    I saw an opening and went for it.
