I should be good for this not sure about Thursday at the minute as it's Anzac Day here, and I will be looking after some aircraft.

Big Sorry to Daniel.
I was looking for the tree I use as a brake point and missed it completely nailing hard.

Well, that could've worked out better :/

Knowing I wouldn't be able to make it Monday, I had some more time to practice and managed to become quite fast - resulting in pole position during quals.

Hooooowever, I quickly ruined that nice start into the event by starting lousy and then screwing up the first chicane in lap 2 - sadly, I couldn't get out of the way in time to avoid Mert crashing into me - sorry about that!
Afterwards, something on the car was broken beyond repair (red symbol without option to repair) and the steering was off due to a suspension damage - went in for an early pit for the latter I got out placed 4th and (now) last - however, I managed to pass David some laps in. While Kacper was completely out of reach for now, I did gain some time on Arne after he crashed somewhere but the race was a few laps too short to get close enough ;)

Given the track is great fun, though, I'll go and signup for Thursday now ;)

Starting second place was ok, I took my hotlap really easy, as to not start further. The first few corners I took really easy to make sure I'll make it. Arne overtook me into first chicane as the FWDs were able to brake a lot later, but then overtook him back in the second chicane and there was my lead.

Now just keeping Arne and Björn behind me was the goal, but Björn crashed out couple laps later, and Arne waited for him I think. I now had a massive lead, such big in fact that once I pitted exactly mid way through the race I was only 4 seconds behind Arne. His used tyres and mistakes didn't help him and I overtook him just a couple laps later. Now it was just a matter of not making mistakes. Overall I've made 2 of them through the race that were noticeable at all. Thankfully they weren't too bad, and I was able to finish the race way in front of Arne after he made a few more mistakes. Really enjoyed driving this car on this track, so winning the race is a nice little topping for that. :)
