Unfortunately, the week's a bit packed. I won't be able to make Friday's race (again :/) and Thursday's unclear.

I'll try to make this one, though - sign me up as a 'maybe', please :)


edit: mixed up something, whoops!

Did not have any practice prior to joining the server with the track/car combo and I was frustrated with my previous performances of either finishing towards the back or not even finishing at all. Qualified third out of seven, and had an interesting start. I don't think any of in the top three had a superb start, so it is not like I was in that boat alone. Had some fun racing with nearly everyone int he first lap before everything settled down.

When the pit stops were approaching, I was in third and knew I could hold it if I was consistent. I wanted to catch Justin and Andreas, but they kept pulling away. changed only my right sides on the pits and jumped ahead of Justin. He got by me, but it was tough. Had a lot of fun racing against him, and even had fun when I was alone because this track is so darn fun and challenging. Brought it home in third which I am very happy with.

No notable incidents to speak of, but I do want to apologize to Justin if I did not allow him adequate space when he was coming off the pits. It was not my intention to stop your from rejoining, but I was sluggish at the time. Nice to see everyone finish this awesome event and I look forward to another awesome Mini Friday next week.
 
I had a fair car in the garage and time on track made it better for this race!

I blew the only qualifying lap I took and pedaled it home.

I got a fair launch and was surprised to find Hristo on my outside as he came from the last row, I thought I was last row!Slowly everyone pulled away as I continued with the best laps I could manage. After a poor braking episode at the chicane I pitted on strategy for two tires and was out quickly. Seems others had bad luck in the pits as I made a few places and tried to hold off Joe and Hristo. Joe got past once but I got back within a lap but he stayed close. I gave him breathing room, after all I knew he was faster than me. I ended a bit out of position in the last part of the esses and Joe got cleanly by as I moved sand and scraped a tire wall. Hristo got by also and there as no coming back for me.:(

@Bob Miley

Sorry Gijs, since it went to 40 mins I have found another hobby for Friday's. At least until the winter comes.
