Sprint Race:
After did my PB on Qualifying i went to the Race with good expectations. But for some reason after about 5 laps my tyres were a bit off. I wasnt lapping like i wanted. Michel was gaining about 1sec per lap. I was 3rd with about 5 min to go if im correct. I was 6sec ahead of Frank. But then Ben was writing so much in the chat window (Damn u :p lol) and i got distracted. As a result i spun in one of those nasty kerbs and Frank and another car (Stefan i think) overtook me. I was now 6th Place and after some laps Race Ended.

Feature Race:
Started 6th due to Reverse Grid format. I reached a crowded first corner with about 4 cars side-by-side and i ended up touching with Chris. I had 3/4 of my car in the inside of Chri's car and the touch was inevitable cause we both started to turn. Then about 50meters ahead me and Phil are side-by-side and i noticed Stefan crashing against Phil's rear and i saw something jumping..I guess it was both wings. Then Zaahir hit me twice... You Z Alien :p After some laps im 5th and entering in the Finish Straight i saw Ben in the left without a wheel i think...I was now 4th... I went into pits on 3rd position with about 20sec ahead of Stefan who was now 4th. After pitting i come out about 5-6 seconds behind him.. About 4-5 laps later i noticed we were lapping in the same second and eventually i gained some time. But I made a mistake in one of the corners and Stef extends the lead to 16sec...Until the end i tryed to catch him and he did a mistake and i was about 5-6sec behind again but with only 2 laps to go...Ended a comfortable 4th.

Overall:
I had a good weekend but i expected better on Sprint Race. Last note goes to the good turnout we had again after last week's bad turnout. Cheers for that guys.

Well I decided only 12 hours before the event to do it, after Ivan couldnt... So expected a crap performance and got a slightly better then crap performance.

Ric took care of me in Race one, but in race two I had good pace and was 2nd, soon to be third from Zaahir, but had a good pace, then ran wide and rhit the wall, race over

But to be expected, the most laps I had done on this track was in the practice session Razz And i havent touched GP2 since Imola lol

Race1
ah well, got an awesome start. lucky, coz i forgot where the braking point was.....hadta brake 3times or sumin stupid. after that it was just cruising and pimping arm hanging out the window stuff. had a bit of fps lag where i had to let off a lot to stay on track, but worked out.

there was one heart-in-mouth moment tho. chris spun sumwhere ahead of me just before the last corner, he was rolling back across the track....hadta take some safe evasive action, on the kerb that usually takes u and spits u into the wall. i was lucky.

Race2
reversed grid!!! 1st corner was madness. cant really rem wat happnd, but i got hit a few times....i think i rem hitting u hugo, but of course i was just trying to keep my nose out of trouble....i rem being handed off to the outside kerb by u. later on in the lap i snatched a brake into the cool chicant thing, and ran into ed....SO sorry abt that Sad then heading into the hairpin in s3, guys were everywhere running wide....i stayed on inside and mustve passed 4guys lol.....then im carrying on my merry way and think i got hit by phil or sum1....spun round and almost hit the wall....came out in front of stefan (oh yeh stefan, u were out in s1 and wanted restart eh Rolling Eyes ended up finishing 3rd lol too funny) after that i started catching ppl and passing em. real clean stuff after that 1st lap madness. i quite enjoyed it.

after passing michel for the lead (which was funny on its own, i just drove on inside line to make him look there....i guess he just got distracted or sumin and went off Laughing ) straight after that i switched the display from laptimes to temperature gauges. i was worried abt engine here, as i blew up in a short practise Confused did some serious shortshifting, and even took corners in a gear higher than normal. didnt really get bored coz the track is just so fun, even when u cruising....theres always a risk of going off!!

Overall
nice race, nice track. kept myself busy in 2nd race with the temp story, so i didnt really get bored.

Race 1:
Fun fun, overtook some people, spun a bit, overtook some people again. Was hoping to overtake Michel as I was gaining on him, but then the tyres let me down.

Race 2:
A bit less fun, but more haha fun. I picked the wrong setup so I was doing really stinky laps. Then I noticed Ben was driving on the left hand side of the start/finish slowly against the wall, so I thought I'd impress him by doing a drive by, yo' kno'. Unfortunately for both of us, there was a light pole in Ben's way, which made Ben spin and me crash into him, haha so funny Very Happy. Light pole 1 - 0 Ben and Frank.

lol didn't have a great one, wasn't running to smooth on my comp which is partly the reason why i punted Ben off, but mainly that was down to a lack of concentration Sad
