Disappointingly inconsistent from me in part due to no practice and not driving the car before. Had a few good moments and a lot of bad mostly my own fault.
Sorry to Gratulin, I got by on the long straight and was ahead through the following right. I thought I had more of a gap than I did and came across the apex of the left, suddenly saw he was inside me, tried to correct but that correction plus the side by side contact spun me off. My fault, should have given more racing room.
I then had an okay stint in a battle with Seanus until he spun on the last corner. I thought I saw a space to floored it but he bounced across the track and we were both near the back. He pitted infront of me some time later so I stayed out for one more and came out way ahead, not sure why. Was in a pack of cars then and put it some good laps, had a good chase and pass on AJ, all going well and then I had a brain fade and forgot what gear I was into coming into the first sweeping left and spun out. After that it went downhill with a few more mistakes.
Hopefully better next week.

Disappointing night for me. Snuck in a last second qually lap jumping from 12th to 8th only to spin at the end of lap 1 and had to let the whole field through leaving me last in 18th..
I cleared shameless after he repeated my spin then spent what felt like forever on bacculums tail but couldnt find a way past and he never makes mistakes! I could see everyone else pulling away so eventually gave up and pitted at lap 20.
After stop lots of clear space and started putting in quick laps and made up a few places as undercuts. Russ anf seanus had a little tangle and got past them then was running in 11th which seed okay. Keith came out of the pits just infront of me so i really wanted to attack while he was on cold tyres but I didnt anticipate how early he'd brake for T1 and spun myself around loosing a cpl of spots.

Not the best qually for me with traffic and mistakes. Was at 17th and just managed an okay lap at the end of time for 9th.
Started okay and was at the back of the mael, phil, diehard, shayne train. Was getting closer to shayne but made a mistake coming into the back straight and lost some time. Soon after my framerate when apeshit for half a lap stuttering massively. I could see on my keyboard lcd it was under 30fps. Luckily it jumped back up again and i could contine and finish 9th.
Race 2 appeared like it was going to be a similar story behind shayne until he spun off at the end of the back straight. I was with diehard for a bit but a few mistakes opened that gap. Towards the end i could see kcender getting closer and closer but i had 3 cuts and was taking it easy . Was fairly sure i could keep the place but made several stupid mistakes then spun off giving me my 10 sec pen. Straight away checked times to those behind. Grat was too close but wally was 9 seconds behind so put my foot down and managed to open the gap leaving me in 8th.
I am taking a while to adapt however. I didn't realise how much muscle memory I had invested in the G27 pedals. Braking is very inconsistent as I learn the new pedals. In the Porsche, especially, it kills your laptimes.
Took me a while coming from G27 with GTEye. The Fanatecs felt 'broken' for a little while but once you're used to it there's no comparison.
