That was a tremendous race with Mael. We were pretty close for most of the race, with Mael in front except for when he made one little mistake and I could get in front for a while. His Lotus had too much speed down the back straight for my Lola though. Really good racing.
The track could not have been better designed for the Lotus, it almost felt like cheating! Made a nice gap to Wally after the pit stop sequence but lost concentration and had a nice 200kph spin in the middle of the track allowing Wally past. Bit of hard work to get in front again with a safety first first approach in the last few laps.
Sadly the next few tracks would probably not be so advantageous for the Lotus

why not throw in the 919 hybrid 2017
That and mixing a 3 minute a lap faster car into the field might be a recipe for disaster. Although it would allow us mere mortals to follow Marty for a lap or two

An enduro at Nords will always have limited entrance but how about inviting some non-XGN members? Sort of a multi-forum event? I drivers like Cherno might enjoy a outing at the ring

Can we take the practice server times as qualification times? i.e. during the week previous to the race.
I'll vote for that.

After a solid qualifying performance and good start I ended up 5th after the first lap. However I soon cracked under Phil's pressure running wide and allowing him an easy pass. From there it was a hard slog pushing every lap to try and keep Phil within sight. Strangely Phil lost a bit of time on the last two laps culminating with a mistake before the last chicane, A bit of bumping and scraping left me exciting the corner alone for 5th place. Apologies if the contact was my mistake Phil!
Race 2 was all about a top 10 place, that was until Grat & Kcender bingle. Suddenly a podium position was on offer which I was going to fight hard for! With Phil behind me I followed one simple rule.....must hit the apex. After doing what felt like a PB on every lap and some dubious defensive maneuvers a third place finish just ahead of Phil.
I saw Freezer's cuts and knew he was having a battle in the mid-field wars, the races are certainly easier with a good qualification position! But the end result was still good for Maki Engineering.

The battles with Joe has been good the last few races! But Jeremy is way too quick unless he's having a bad day.
You're my responsibility while Freezer has to finish ahead of Grat, ensuring Maki engineering's podium finish at season end If Freezer beats Grat we almost guaranteed to finish ahead of Infinity+ as well!

We have very little problems with lapped traffic in the XGN races.
Yes on occasion hiccups do occur but that will happen even with the strictest rules and formalized procedures. So just continue as we've always done.
