    All going well until end of lap 5 when I came round last corner and straight into a car that was sideways. Pit in for repair but came out with a front left puncture, was impossible to turn so................................

    Thanks Yves.

    Bit of a mess really ... quali'd fairly ok but didn't find the form I had this morning :(
    Race ... lap 1, collected someone who went sideways in front of me in the carousel, thought I missed them but last minute they found an extra bit of out of control speed to ping me wide.
    I seem to be making a habit of being collected in other people's mistakes at the mo and causing my engine a big ol hit of damage :sad:

    Anyways ... that's racing, not your fault ... so I got back on near last, chased down a small group in front of me, and had a bit of a scrap there which was most enjoyable. Moved on up and thru the group and saw Bob in my mirrors collect Mr Hurst as he went sideways out of the final turn ... nearly had me too, but I managed to duck inside and just take a slight sideswipe as Rick went :eek:

    After a few more laps of pushing I stuffed it, shifted down a bit quick I think, clipped the grass and broke my car ... pitted to fix things ... took forever ... got out again, and broke it again ... was gonna pit but by this time the front boys were on me and with a lot of speed and a puncture, I decided that rather than chance stuffing their race, just to floor it and comit hari kari :th_cool:

    I do like these cars ... bit more praccy and I might even be able to race them :goat:

    Cheers Yves, and the lovely RD community - shame about the result but mostly fun getting there :wink2:

    good race, thanks. I am only 10th and I was low, but I was more on more fast and this was cool. I did errors at the end but I think the tyres was less good. Thanks all

    woohooooo i made it back in time :woot2:
    qualy: with just 9 minutes left when i join i did only one hotlap that was good for second place.

    race: had a good start and was right behind Andreas, but i made a little mistake at T2 and had a little fight with third place the next few turns, well done mate very clean :peace2: but eventually got free and on the long front straight i seem to have more top speed then Andreas and was able to pass him on the outside at T1. from there i started to pull away, made a few small mistake along the way until 10 minutes left in the race where i lost it under braking at the end of the second long straight and hit the wall and lost my front splitter. i was loosing lots of time in the middle sector but i was able to keep it till the end and took the win.

    well done everybody it was lots of fun :woot2:

    Hermy setup made it possible for a decent starting place in my Challenger :good:,away good with the front pack and everyone was very nice and gentle and i saw no touches or nurfs,close behind Lee at Caroussel when the car ahead goes full side on to a near halt,Lee just clips him a tiny bit and gets out wide,just as im about to arrive and do the same the car disappeared,the guy who span it must have went for esc key the instant he stopped,so i get away with it all and soon latch on to the gang again and pick some places and it all really boils down to a big long battle with me and Haukka to settle 4th and 5th,our constant mistakes let Dan get away or he was going to be involved in this as well :p,highly enjoyable stuff with Hannu :good:.

    Grats Yves and podiums and well done everyone who brought it home.

    Thank You Yves & RD.

    Qualy: Did not much changes to the standard setup and was surprised to win the pole with such a big gap. Maybe it was the colour of the car (orange :wink2:)

    Race: Had some problems to find the right brakepoints at the beginning with full tank and lost P1 to Yves. Unfortunately a spin brings me back into the field but it makes it more interesting. Could go again to P2 after nice racing with Martjin.
    A further meeting with the gravel brings me again dwon to P3 behind Martjin, was surprised as he go into pit in lap 11, so back in P2.
    Then only nice racing with the Camaro to P2 behind Yves.

    :thanks:for this great event, the muscle are a really nice race - class.

    It was so fun! Had a battle with Gary through the whole race which made this one of the best races in a long time. :) Wasn't even interested about podium because that fight was so much better stuff plus these cars have so hard slicks than you can take it sideways whole 45 minutes without destroying them. :p

    Thanks!

    Here are some screenshots. That yellow car hardly ever goes straight. :)

    Twice in as many days have I had cause to call you a lucky bar-stool mate - that clip was just enough to push me out wide and at the back of the pack, and would have ended your race before it begun by the sounds of things, you lucky man you :)

    Nice to have quali'd in front of you too bud for possibly the first time ever, and shame I couldn't have had more fun racing you and Hannu on track :rolleyes:

    BTW Hannu - nice screenies mate - thanks
