Congratulations Tom.

That was a fun race. I had some good early battles with Mael and Seanus until I clipped the grass over the crest with one tyre that spun me off to the wall. I fought back, had some more good passes with Seanus, and courtesy of Tom's fuel misfortune, jagged a surprise 3rd place (without blowing up my engine!)

Thanks for the season Phil and Roo.

Ended up quite a strange race.

Qualified 7th, a bit further down the grid than expected since I thought the Lotus was pretty good around the track. The race itself was, after the initial laps battling Wally & Co, pretty boring. Unbeliev was too quick and for some reason there was no one behind me? I even had the time to do a 360 in the middle of the track with about 5 laps to go. A win was gifted to me by Unbeliev's fuel usage, thanks mate!

Thanks Phil and everyone else who contributed to the season, it was fun.

And any prizes for driving the most unpopular cars? I did manage to sort out the Lotus's braking problems. It seems the brake bias is somehow linked to the rear wing. If you run low wing settings the brake bias feels too far forward resulting in reduced braking performance, very poor turn in and no trail braking potential specially as tire wear increases. With max rear wing the car becomes a lot more stable and actually have very good braking performance with no brake "fade" as the tires wear.

That was the most enjoyable race I had in the BMW but still not a fan of the car. Qualified 2nd or 3rd but spun off on lap 2 reentering somewhere around 8th. Managed to keep in clean and consistent after that to take 2nd. I must have undercut some people as I don't remember making too many passes.
