Well guys, for anyone wanting to see the results here they are :

Race results

Of course Ben still has to look at them so they aren't official, we can't put up provisional championship results yet either because Watkins results arent official either.

bit of a hairy race thats for sure... i was quite dissapointed about the start of the offical race since i got off to 2 amazing starts with pace car on, but it really wasnt fair so i shouldnt complain Razz

in the official race i was spun round at turn one putting me in 14th place, but due to some traffic i soon got myself up to 9th i think it was.. Smile

after that 1st incident at T1 i'd taken some damage to the left suspension which slowed me down quite alot, but i managed to get myself up to 4th. Having taken that damage 5th & 6th soon caught me up, so i let them past since i knew i had no chance.

later on in the race i hit a wall damaging the right suspension, and although it straightend the steering out i was even slower, but luckily i held on until my last lap to pit which left me in 7th place, so all in all quite happy with the result.. Very Happy

Went to Bruges Sunday, so I wasn't expecting to race and didn't practice. I got home and to my delight the race still hadn't started, so I joined in. Since I hadn't done any practice I was not expecting to be in front, so I asked for a setup, which James and Stefan gave me, big thanks to both of you. I decided to use Stef's setup, as last time that one suited me most too, I wasn't able to test your setup James, sorry for that.
The first 2 races I won't discuss.

The race started pretty good, in the first lap I was able to get from the last position to first due to an accident, and there was a gap for me.
I managed to drive away from Ric, but my dad and sister were setting up the Christmas tree right next to my computer, and they were asking me the most stupid questions ("Shall we put the fake candles in or not?" - "Okay let's put them in", "Oh no wait, I liked it before the candles were in" etc), making me lose concentration and resulting in 2 spins.
I noticed that Ric went in pretty fast, and I tried to last the race. In the last lap there were only 15 seconds remaining on the clock when I passed the start/finish, and Ric was 8 seconds behind, so it was a lost cause, because I only had 1 litre left (too bad I didn't save more fuel in the beginning), resulting in a dnf under the bridge.

Oh well, gambled and lost! Fifth isn't too bad. Good job to Richard S.! Smile

yeah 5th is pretty good! I should have slowed down more on the last lap so you lost a few places :p oh wait you race for hawkeye dont you lol.

Well I was a bit lucky to win, damaged my car a bit when I hit Stef ( who had crashed ) then I think Hugo hit my backside (because of the pile-up).

was a bit a of a strange race with all the false starts and also seeing the so called safety car plough into two drivers!

Qualy

I qualified 11th which though was towards the back of the grid less than 2 seconds covered the next 8 places in front of me

Race

Made a careful start and made up one place by 2nd corner,then there was a roadblock on T4 and managed to thread my way through and found myself up to 7th.

Lap 4 i was nudged by Lee and got spun around so lost the place and ended up in 8th position, but repassed a stationary Lee on lap 9 and when i pitted on Lap 11 i was up to 5th place but remerged in 7th place behind Lee. Rest of the race went well and managed to pass Lee on the last lap as he pitted.

So all in all an eventful race meet and i was happy with my 6th place, when i first raced here i didnt like it at all but i ended up liking it in the end as its a challenging course.

@ben: i hope these server probs have gone, no one's ping seemed to touch over 150 and there was none of that disspearing and reapearing stuff.. mind you, we only had 14 at the weekend.. you think this has anything to do with it?
