Jeremy and i struggled to get our cars working around here and the big restrictor didnt help lol, is anybody else having trouble getting these car to rev match correctly under brakes? it seems to match and then slip away killing engine braking and then putting the car into limbo until i get on the power again making it jump as it engages drive, makes it tricky under brakes and through the mid turn. Are people using auto clutch or something that corrects that issue?
qual: felt i got the most out of the car and was happy with my time but only was good enough for 10th lol was a competitive field!
Race1: Was busy going into t1 in the mid pack but survived it fine until lap 2 where someone had a moment at the hairpin entry which caught me out as he spun back on the circuit so i ended up spinning trying to avoid him amd that put me back to 15th where i stayed as it was very hard to pass especially when you dont have the power to get a run on people lol
race2: Started even further back this time with jeremy i think it was 17 and 18th for us as the pace struggles continued lol, again a nice clean start managing to make a few spots got up to about 13th and had some really good battles with a few people around this spot for the first half of the race, as the tyres wore out i couldnt hold off russ and bueller anymore as they were able to get close to me down the straights making me defend the final turn hampering me for the rest of the lap so eventually they got me with a few nice side by side passeges so was fun and then i was alone till the end lol
Good to see a big competitive field with some new racers around hopefully struggle street can get back to the front next round with some setup work and a smaller restrictor

Was a great cship this one cars were a surprise for me didnt think they be as awesome to drive as they were, was a great one to win and i was pretty happy with how i setup the car and drove most the races. Thanks wally for all the hard yards you put into the league its fantastic!
For what ever reason the car didnt work here so i was off the pace a bit but i wasnt too fussed as all i wanted to do is aim for a podium as thats all i needed to do. Qualy i got 5th which wasnt ideal but i couldnt do much more lol. Race 1 got away nice and clean and was behind phil and kero before they came together and i inherited p2, that was more than enough for me so i just cruised to the finish in p2 which was better than i expected and would ease the pressure for race 2.
Race 2 i was super cautious lap 1 and had a few incidents in front of me that raised the heart rate but i survived and was 3rd behind bachulum and joe watching them battle out, after a few laps joe got past and i followed suit. Joe had good pace and i couldnt do much about it without risking too much so there wasnt much of a gain when p2 again would be more than enough for me so i sat back but joe was driving great anyway and pulled away so congrats to him on his first win good to see

Was very happy to have a sweep for the night qual was intense being very close so was happy to top it off with a nice lap in the end.
Race 1 i didnt get a great launch so phil jumped me but then i saw he got a drs penalty so my plan was to just lap with him and not risk anything, was a great pressure race with some decent times being posted but after the pits i inherited the lead after phil got caught up with the lapped traffic. Cruised home and went for the fastest lap a few times to secure maximum points
Race 2 i felt like dan ric a bit with everyone in front of me making mistakes so i just gravitated to the lead lol and once again went for the fastest lap and cruised for the win

I think you will find kcender ran into me race 1 wally lol
was happy with qual, got a decent launch was going to settle behind grat but then kcender had a moment into t4 and clipped my car, fell mid pack and had a great time fighting back to p2 with a awesome battle with phil and joe for the podium.
race2: messy start thought there was another crash going into t2 up my inside so i went straight across to dirt in fear lol came back on slow and got taken out car was heavily damaged was like driving a truck but found myself p5 but then trying to push a little to catch simone the thing just went straight at the last turn where kcender was waiting and that was it for me, went back to pit to fix car came 18th... no luck at all that one...

I shouldnt drive when i have been up since 5am on 5hrs sleep lol, surprised i got pole i wasnt happy with any of my laps.
Race 1: Got past grat after he got me lap 1, was looking good and i bumped the drs button... so i assumed i needed a 5 sec gap so i pushed pretty hard all race got it too 4.5 when i pitted. Came out the pits behind a lapped car went to overtake it at the hairpin but the gap disappeared and i clipped them trying to pull out and it put me into a spin. then i think chap found my stranded car and he watched me struggle to find reverse lol and that was the end of that race so came 4th or something.
Race 2: Got hit into t1 from behind got wing damage so the car was twitchy but i decided to still push for kcender and the thing just spun on entry at the right hander at the start of s3 and again someone found my stranded car and damaged my front wing and I limped home 11th... an awake me may have saved the car who knows an annoying error lol

What a difference it makes doing some prac before a race lol car was fantastic but then again I love Austria so we see how we go next round I must test again
Was super pumped over my qual lap that felt great haha not much more in it, race 1 was all about getting a clean get away on lap 1 which I managed and from there I managed the race to the fin for a nice win
Race 2: A bit tricky from 8th was behind the grat and kcender spin and just missed them, parting my way through the middle. Knowing Jeremy was out front it was difficult to keep momentum picking people off 1 by 1. I think lap 6 I got to p2 about 6 secs behind Jeremy and set hunting him down I got it down to the 2 sec mark by the end but got distracted going into the final turn and had a lame half spin lol so lost my time and had to settle for 2nd in front of kcender But 2 nd was all I would of got anyway Jeremy started to pick up his pace so it was a nice 1 2 either way
