A cracking Sprint race tonight, I found myself at the back with @Lancia34 and struggling to make ground on everyone else, then I span out and was at the back of the pack as we finished the first lap, only to see seven cars all going into turn one at the same time! :laugh:

Probably my most enjoyable race in a while - there was no letting off or rest at any point during the five laps, I was genuinely exhausted as I crossed the line.

Yes and 6 of those 7 were piling in to me who was in a glorious 2nd place at the time coming from the back at the start..... yes it was a great race. I'll put the replay up shortly.....

I really enjoyed the 2nd race and had a great battle with @LeftyXXIII over the last 2 laps.

1st race not so good - tried going on the Hard Tyres with fuel saving, ran into the back of @rhodos on the banked bend when I got caught out with some unexpected braking (sorry!) and spun off. The tyres were unmanageable once I reached 7 laps and had to pit.
Then on my last lap I was up over half a second on the fastest lap time, and the race ended due to the cut off time when I was 100 metres from the chequered flag! :mad:

Yep - I never quite realised that you can take that banking section flat - as anyone behind me at that point through both races will have seen :)

Not quite flat out as you need to lift off the gas a little in most cars but no need to brake...unless you want to scare someone ;)

I might run the Peugeot next week just to rub it in to you guys that it's the driver, not the tools* ;) :D

*I totally accept that I got lucky with the Jaguar, it's a solid car.

Did you get a change to shuffle the tables?

Sorry guys for my absence the last couple of weeks, and apologies to @paulyoung666 for leaving him high and dry. Had a lot on at home, and timing has been awful including my mate going through an unexpected divorce has taken a lot of my time.
Should be okay from here though, and want to get back to some racing!
