Not the best season for me so far in terms of pace and technical issues, hopefully my broadband won't give up on me 5 mins before the session starts like it has the last 2 weeks. And with a series like this, its so close that half a second loses a fair few places on the grid :)

Have done a few laps around here in a GT car (I think it was this track anyway lol) and it was quite fun, will be a bit different in the clios but just as fun hopefully. Less contact that Mid Ohio would be nice though, had a few minor bumps last round despite leaving plenty of room.

Today I learnt 3 things:

1. If you carry too much speed through the final chicane you end up driving on 2 wheels
2. Cars dont turn well when driving on 2 wheels
3. Theres a big wall on the exit of the final chicane :D

I fully expect to end up upside down and wedged inside that wall at some point tomorrow, most likely during my quali lap ;)

Track is a lot of fun though, despite my front tyres being nearly on fire after just a few laps.

i really like this track. you can attack the kerbs more than mid-ohio, which i think was why i couldn't find any speed there. but anyway, the trapped nerve in my arm says no to racing today. :(

i'll be watching the stream instead. have fun people!

Well... What can I say?....

T-boned in the firs race, first corner.. Steering when was 90 degrees of. When I came out of the pit I was seconds ahead of the field, so decided to end it.

2nd race... My computer decided to crash to desktop at the beginning of the first lap. When I can back in the game I was far behind... I had a nice battle with Gijs, but I decided to let him go as henhad more to fight for than me in this championship.

I hope my luck will turn .....some day....

Thankntonth staff members for the organisation and grew broadcast.

Wasnt easy to learn the track in such a short time and screwed up qualy, but race 1 was great lots of battling hard and fair. Race 2 started well, but then we went 3 wide into the hairpin for the fifth time and Christian and I interlocked on the exit and I spun him and went off. When I went back somehow Simon was tagged or something and my car got totaled :(
Really a bit unfortunate very small touch and at the end a big crash. I wanted not to risk to much in general, because it is my last race and I wanted to at least secure P3 in the championship.

Now I have to hope Teddy does not outscore me. A bit of an anti climax for a great season. A bit disappointed I didn't win a race, so I hope season 5 comes quickly this time, so I can correct that and get a win :D

I had no pace what so ever, i mean i was struggling heaps with this track. Somehow i managed to finish race 1 in 6th from whatever my horrible qualy was. It was a classic clio race intense with a good serving of overtakes and battles. Simon got me on the last lap for 5th and fred managed to pass me as well but when fred tried a move on simon it backfired and it let me get back past him on the outside. Awesome stuff guys :).

Then it was onto Race 2, if you watched the stream a good 80% of the coverage of race 2 is either my car or looking at other cars from my car. So my race 2 can be watched and i dont even need to describe it to you, thanks cameraman for making this a whole heap shorter:laugh::p. Although my accidental move on conrad, i was not expecting him to brake so much so i ended up wide cleaning up those green bollards :p. But seriously i did not expect to get such a good start, i was in 2nd... Then 3rd... then dropped back a bit and then straight after that everybody took each other out... and i finished 3rd after some great battles and a lot of swapping places with Kiranjan. Although i did finish with something like 25% left on the front left so I could not of gone for much longer. :redface::):thumbsup:

A big thankyou to the cameraman for this round, you did an amazing job ;) And once again thanks to everyone involved in making this great series happen. :thumbsup: See you next week for the final. :)

Average qually for me. P15 Once the 1st couple of laps had settled down I found myself in P12 holding position from the chasing pack and not gaining on the guys further ahead, a quiet race.
Race 2 gained 1 or 2 spots and then somehow managed to hit my pit limiter followed by neutral gear going into the 2nd chicane, sorry April and Gjis, I must have given you a fright, dropped 2 places and then pulled off a great out braking overtake on April, found myself in P11 challenging the guys ahead, missed my brake point, or rather got totally the wrong corner and had to wait to return to track, as i have had zero incidents so far and want to complete the league that way, i think my error cost me a top 10 finish but enjoyable all the same.
