Record night for me. Getting a win is fairly rare let alone getting three!!
I had cash for the Merc, but the felt much better in the BMW. Just missed pole in qualy to AB but new the great launch of the BM
would sort that out!!
Each race was a case of getting the good jump and pulling a gap. From there I focused on keeping it, although it got a bit small at times.
Had solid pressure from AGK and also AB with whom we shared a number of corners side by side, but just managed to prevail.
Formation finish in R1 for Maki Engineering with team mate Mael, but his pc drop out in R2 dropped him back unfortunately.
Now to Croft in the Nissan!

Race 1 was a quiet affair with Kcender getting the jump on me in the first turn, but was able to pass the Nissan in the back Straight. Then it was 19 more laps of hot lapping. (Nil contacts)
Race 2 turn 1 first time around Mael internet glitched and he flotted across the track, I braked heavily making contact with Mael and also Phil and Bacchulum. Then going into T6 with cold tyres I slide the the outside of the track and at the same time slide back to 12. Once the tyres were warmed up the Seat was make short work of the Nissans and Hyundai on the back straight. Joe had a moment coming out of T6 on to the back straight, I thought I had cleared his rear end but my windsheild smashed (sorry Joe). I had to work to get passed Bradc to get back to fourth. The last four laps was spent holding Mael off.
Race 3 ab had a moment in the first lap and I found my self in 3rd . I could not keep pace with AGK and Freezer, so settled in a rhythum. Then Mael caught me in lap 9 had a great battle to keep him in check. Lap 15 the tyres of the Seat started to go off and in T6 I locked up and Mael was able to get a run down the back straight. I didnt have the speed that Mael had so slowly feel behind. So I settled for fourth.
So all up two fourths and fifth. A good fun night racing.

I won't be taking the starts anymore.I wouldn't be too hard on yourself or your tools. Last night, it was 3 wide, not all exactly lined up side by side, cars moving a little bit tot the side... Killa was a little to the rear, but there's not a great deal he could have done to avoid a slight touch. That's touring car racing!
I had some great racing last night, despite a few knocks. Chasing Simone for laps glued to his rear bumper with my angry lights on, until he finally ran a little wide and I could squeeze past. Caught in the Phil train with Killa's Nissan and Rob's Merc, jockeying for position to try to pass Phil. That was awesome racing, until I oversteered just a little at the bottom of the hill, tagged the back of Phil's Hyundai and came off. That sent me back to second last because the group was so close behind me.

There's obviously something wrong with my Car Radar.
2 weeks running it has shown Killa behind me yet it results in side to side contact.
If I can't trust my tools, I can't be safe in a pack.

Three great races. No time to test at all this week, suspect I embarrassed myself with how slow I was in the French rocket but it did allow me to have great racing.
Good stuff with Mael and AGK race 1.
Good stuff with Freezer in race 2, I think I had the lead for 1.5 corners...
Good stuff with the rest of the field (esp. Kcender) in race 3 after I messed up lap 1.
BMWs were quick off the line and by the time my tyres were ready to go the pace difference wasn’t enough for a clean pass.

Race 1 was good and clean right behind kcender the whole race. We had about the same pace so no chance of pass. Looking at race stats was about a 0.5 sec gap between us from lap 2 till the end.
Race 2 was going okay having a good chase trying to get past Brad until I put the left rear on the gravel exiting to the back straight and spun. had to wait for most of the field to go to safely rejoin. Spun again a few laps later. Car was pretty dead so retired.
Race 3 started second last and had a great opening lap up to 6th or 7th but then got tangled up with Rob and Phil and ended up against the wall facing the wrong way and back to last. Wally, Phil, Rob and Killa were about 8 secs ahead battling so I took advantage of the the sausage curb for a few laps to catch up then had a few good final laps racing.

Congratulations to Freezer on the round win.
Congratulations also to AGK, who has been slowly but steadily moving up the all time rankings here. He's currently sitting at #13 in the all time rankings.
