Also sorry to Russ for the contact in race 2, I thought I left enough space on the outside. If not then I apologize.
No worries Mael. I wasn't happy at the time, but it's all good.
I think I let a good result slip through my fingers here.
In practise I had the pace.
In qual I did some ordinary laps, then I was on a flyer. According to the Delta it would have been good enough to take pole. Halfway through the last turn I ran out of fuel
Race 1: Got away OK, had a little side by side battle with kcender (i think) and we dropped a bit behind the front group. When it came to braking into the hairpin at the bottom of the hill I apparently misjudged the slowness of the leaders as even though I was far behind, I had to lockup to avoid running into the back of AJ. I spun off and rejoined at the back ... Fought back to 18th at the end.
Race 2: Even though I didn't manage to set a proper time in Race 1, I still somehow started 5th for race 2
Got away OK with the pack, then got propped a bit at the uphill esses which allowed Mael to charge around the outside. We stayed side by side through the right hander over the top of the hill and down the hill until the braking zone where we touched lightly and I went off and rejoined a distant last.
From there I had some fun racing with the restrictor really playing a part and managed to fight back to 12th.
Well done to my teammate ab156 who was right up there amongst it at this round
