Now the good news is that i like this track so at least my head was in the right place to start with.
Noel was a no show for this race, so just Andy G, JB and Tom for this race.
Qualifying went ok for me and Tom, JB was further down the field.
3rd place for Tom with a 1.45.028
19th for me with a 1.46.036 which i was very happy with.
JB ended up in 31st with a 1.46.847
Pole Position went to Robert R Hartley with a 1.44.888
So we all got off to a good start really for the first few turns, had a bit of a close call at turn 6 Siberia where some cars had come together, but we managed to keep out the way.
Tom had a really good race fighting with the top 9 drivers from the 1st lap to the last, swapping places all over the place, even taking the lead
for may be 10 seconds 🙂
JB had a bit of a control issue after lap 9 the issue was he lost control 3 times in the race 😛 but he made up some places.
My race was on from the 1st to the last lap also, does not matter how much time you made up on the infield you then lost it on the straight.
Me, Neil Bamber and Michael s Wright were back and forth the laps seemed to go on and on. It was a real hard fight but one of the best races i have had on the iRacing service. I pitted early trying to break the tow, but messed my pit up again adding full fuel and losing a few seconds
when i came out the pit i was now behind Neil ..crap. So we carried on as before until the finish line where i managed to get the win over Neil by 1400 hundredth of a second (2nd to last picture) and Michael 1/2 second behind that after having a incident at the last corner with Nick Thissen. So i ended up in 15th leading the amateurs Neil Bamber in 16 and Michael Wright in 17, JB ended up in 26th position.
The finish for the leaders was even closer then the Amateurs Robert R Hartley took the win he beat Steliyan Chepilevski by 00.002 of a second. the first 9 cars were within 2.3 seconds over the line, the first 4 cars were with in 00.616 of a second.
Tom Eric Voll for Team Tortoise was the 8th car across the line after a few mistakes but still a very close run race and a very clean race too.
Special Mention for Drees Nice who went from 21st to 3rd place with only 3 off tracks, well done to him.
We are off to the latest iRacing track which is Snetterton 300 for the next Round.
