Apologies to Unbelief and AJ for the first race. Made a mistake overtaking Joe knocking Unbelief off the road and then while fuming over the stupid error I returned to the track without looking for oncoming traffic.

At least I got some comic relief from Phil's on-board footage during the rest of race 1, seemed someone kept on moving his brake markers  ;D

was a good race, enjoyed it.
Noting some times from Phill and Bach, I thought I'd have a tough race getting to 1.36's.

Race 1 - Had a good jump off the line and tried to gain as much pace as I could before the first turn. Somehow I managed to get in top place applying heavy pressure on the pack leaders as they went wide or locked up under brakes. From there, I had to play a defensive game knowing my times weren't as quick and with 3 others gaining on my tail, I had to pick my line carefully. Unfortunately Mael spun me, but I regained speed and control pretty quick so I didn't loose out that much. Joe got himself a big gap between myself and Phill so I kept on Phill's bumper until he eventually locked up and went wide again in the last few laps. Congrats Joe on the win.

Race 2 - Working my way up the pack from 3rd last (I think someone wanted to stay at the back as I gave heaps of room to overtake on the outlap). Found myself behind Wally who did a good job trying to hold me up. Thanks for the brake check btw. Dove in on the inside at one stage and got around him to carry out the remainder of the race.

Next race I may/may not make it as I am about to become a new dad next week. Hopefully I've acquired enough points to hold out, even for just one race out of two.

I was having a lot of trouble braking into corners. I always felt very close to sliding off the track and was struggling to find a good brake modulation.

Congratulations Dad!

Maybe you could do with some new pedals?

Congrats. I ended with with an unwanted 8 month break when I had my 3rd. I tried to keep going but I could never finish a race so had to call it for a while.

Cruel Joe, very cruel :)
But it will help. My current brake pedal just has a linear resistance and its very hard to apply progressive brake pressure.

Ya gotta laugh at this kinda thing, I do stuff like that all the time....

Yeah you will love it! Initially I thought mine were 'broken' as it feels so different and struggled for a few days but now there's no way I'd go back.
