In the end 4 drivers, Gijs gave me a set as I joined for qualy after my first timed lap I did a few adjustments, another outlap another correction and went for it and took pole by 1 tenth ahed of Gijs and 2 or 3 ahead of John.
Before the race I changed the brake pressure and wasn't comfortable in the first laps with high fuel and less brake pressure and Gijs went past. After that it was a hard fight until the end. I got past as he made a mistake. Driving without ABS made it very difficult to try and outbrake Gijs and my engine went quite hot in the dirty air.

After that I slowed a bit to cool my engine down and Gijs came way to close. With worn tires it was a lot harder to push, but I couuld stay ahead. Lots of fun and close racing even though we were only 4 cars on track,but with the right guys it is fun :)

I was having a hard time pushing the car.
Never felt comfortable pushing it to my limit and that last corner was making things worse. :p
I tried to keep up but after a few mistakes the left front tire was done and had to be more careful. Even a few seconds behind still had fun. ;)

Mostly in a race with a big grid i end up racing by myself from start to finnish. :sick:

With small grids: There is always that 1 guy that makes you go racing. :geek: Mostly it's Joao who for some reason finds me on track, but this time it was the GT-king. :)

Thanks for the race guys :) Just jumped into the practice session to see whether I was around the right sort of pace and seems I'm not as far off as I expected.

Ended up using the default setup I think as I didn't reload the shared one after rejoining the session, but it seemed quite nice to drive and turned in quite nicely on the brakes.

Couldn't quite nail a lap in quali but got a decent enough banker to be close. Probably better for my nerves to not be on the front row anyway, I have only done a couple of races on rfactor ever (normally race on iracing) so wanted to be quite cautious!

Race was mainly just a test of consistency as much as anything. Didn't know how much I would need to manage the tyres in a short race like this, but had to push a lot to stay in touch with the top 2 and stay ahead of Joao. 3/4 seconds off was better than I expected though so will definitely be back for more :)
