1ste overall now... :) So basically you are virtually in the lead of the championship. :D
But still a loong way to go...
Only 1 lap, we made it 1 lap longer then our competitors but we got in with less than 0.5L so we're going to be carefull taking that risk again
 
Not a good start of the race. Penalty from last race then not so good pace on green track, but very good pace in the 2nd stint, but a penalty at the end of it and few mistakes in stint 3. Stint 3 made all the hard work to regain time undone :(
But more than 21 hours to go :D
 
I had an lmp2 lagging in front of me in the porsche curve. I dont know where he went but we wanted to do a driver swap anyway in this lap and lost so only 15 sec :rolleyes:

The way this race has gone anything is possible. :p
 
I had a really scary moment yesterday. A P2 car ported towards me and we had contact. I nearly peed my pants at 350kph you suddenly have something directly in front of you. Between the shots is only 1 second and then contact as the P2 car was like 30 or 40kph slower.

It's a very sombre morning for RedShift Racing this morning; we have had some terrible luck, that has seen both cars drop from their potential podium positions. :( Let's hope that we'll be able to claw a few places back in the 4 and a half hours that remain.
 
Just got back home.

Seems like a lot happened.

But be careful in the last lap. I've got some experience with that lately. :p
- Disconnected with just 3 corners to go.
- Jumped the fence in the chicane just before the finish line.
- Spin out in the last lap.
