Well I had a all right sorta night.
Technical - number 2 son had his headphone/mic pluging to rig, so no discord in VR I didnt work this out till after the race. On that note I'm not liking VR at the moment, might go back to screens, not that would make me faster.
R1 Highlight was a good battle with bradc lasted about 5 laps till we came together and both ran wide, I waited till bradc passed and I rejoined. Looked at the fuel gauge and had 0lt left, so coasted to the pits. Pulling up at the pit box I stabed the brake a bit hard and came to a stop a bee's dick out of the box and unable to move. Had to teleport back to the pits with the normal penelty.
Second race started well but got caught up with mae's off at the top of the track on lap 2. Back to the rear of the field I go managed to get passed mac87 and was chasing Simone but could not get close enough to make it interesting. I was pushing hard through the kink on the main straight, really trying to make some ground on simone and I ran just a poofteenth off the track found the wall and really broke the steering of the car. Made the pits and had a long mechical interlude, got back out for a very lonley final few laps.
Could have had a better result in both races but lack of prep pre race let me down in the first and trying too hard in the second. Made some points and had a blast fighting bradc in the first race so better than a rage quit.

Mixed night for me, but I was pretty happy with it.
Daylight savings does my head in. I arrived at practice with about 5 minutes to go, which doesn't suit me at all as I like to have at least half an hour to settle in and used most of the qualifying to get there......sort of.
Race 1: I went backwards from the start and realised my gearing wasn't good enough (mental note for race two). Determined not to lose every position that I found myself in I tried to stay on the outside of the fast left-hander at the back of the circuit, didn't stay on the track and beat my car up on the wall which smashed my windscreen. The rest of the race was difficult and I came virtually last after running out of fuel, and coasting to the finish line. (Mental note: add two litres of fuel)
Race 2: Changed gearing, added fuel and started in 15th. The start wasn't great, but it was okay and I didn't go backwards. The race looked like it was going to be a lot better than race one because I wasn't getting passed at the end of the straights which was the main problem in race one.
A few spots were gained when Wally had his unfortunate incident, and I drove really well to catch and pass Rob, bradc and eventually ab156 (whose car looked a little worse for wear) on the last lap to finish 7th. I didn't get time to savour it because I had a blue screen about 2 seconds after I crossed the line. I'm glad it held off until I'd crossed the finish line.
I enjoyed it, thanks blokes.

Awesome first race minimal mistakes, real close racing with freezer and Joe. At one stage for almost a full lap (it seemed like) the two of them were side by side and I couldn't get past, awesome racing guys. Finished 4th great result for me for a change.
So...that meant I was on pole for second race, not realising it until on the grid, overwhelming last minute pressure lol. Got a clean start and looked all clear in helicorsa so I shot across towards the apex into turn one but I think I caught someone out a bit by doing so, very sorry and glad there wasn't a major. Calmness I had in the first race was no longer there and started to make a few minor mistakes drifting wide into barriers a few times, also missing gears didn't help. The car damage was yellow front, left, rear, engine and gearbox. Another off track adventure end of the back straight with bacchulum (sorry) right on my rear bumper, I'm glad that one also didn't end bad but I lost more places. Then, when the race timer says two laps to go, race engineer says you're running on fumes. With a bit of a buffer I backed off trying to save fuel and maintain position, 6th.
Excellent first race, shocker second race (driving wise) but good fun thanks guys.

I know for sure I'm doing better than any other season in terms of consistency and finishing positions. I still expect kcender to take the season but I'm happy and surprised to still be at the top for now.+ 1 for me on that one!!

Just for the fun of it, I've listed who's doing better than average this season, and who's not doing so well.
In this table, sorted from best to worst, the number is an indication of how much better you're doing this season in terms of your finishing positions, compared to your total history across all seasons.
The more positive the number, the better you're doing.
The more negative the number, the worse you're doing.
Zero means you're tracking to your average.
I feel like I'm at the bottom
