you lot where too fast, good job everyone
All good Taj. It's an unforgiving track, easy to go off. I did a lot of that in practice, getting up to speed (somewhat) for tonight, and mostly avoided it in the race.Results are here:

Had fun, despite probably visiting every bit of grass beside the track
Hope I didn't ruin anyone's race!!
Still need to learn how to drive the Mazda, managed to improve my pb from 1:11 to 1:07.8 during the race, so there is hope.
Congrats to the two podiums and thanks to Han for organising!!
You did a great qualifying lap, if you can do it once then you can do it again.Like @Douglas Aird, I'm still trying to work this one out. I had been slow in practice and didn't have very high hopes but did okay to qualify 14th (7th Mazda) with a PB.
I felt good in the first few laps, managing to stay on track and avoid skirmishes. However, it then started to fall apart as my laptimes fell and I got into battles with people recovering and started making mistakes. I think @Allan Ramsbottom came past me four times! My entry to T1 started to get sketchier and eventually I got it wrong and spun losing lots of places.
On reflection, I think I just got lucky in qualifying. My practice and race were more representative of where I really was. Frustrating to find myself slipping back through the field though.
The last few races suggest I might have a basic technique problem somewhere. I suspect it might be to do with weight transfer when braking and accelerating. One to think about.
Thanks Ernie, I am still learning and was happy with my overall pace but still some way to go with consistency and race craft. If T1 was a bit slower I might have had a go but knowing how quick you are and with you on the racing line I thought it best to back out and fight another day.Very interesting few laps Paul, ( just looked at the replay ) if I had been you I would have done the same by backing out of it, as you did not quite manage to totally control the corner, but we’re more than enough in the right place to go for it. I was quite prepared to accept the consequence of that as you noticed.
I would have not been able to have complained in the slightest, it really was a 50:50 corner for both of us.
if we were fighting for fourth or fifth I would have been a lot more prepared to drive the corner in a much less determined way, Plus I had my eyes on Andre position, so that motivated me too, even though I knew it was not really on, but with the Audi’s in the mix you never know.
It is fun racing against such a great competitor, determined yet very fair.
