What an eventful night! Started off with an extremely poor qualifying performance which saw me starting from 8th which wasn't ideal.
Got a semi decent launch with the car which by turn 1 saw me up to 5th. Fighting with bacculem again for the first few laps was fun, I clearly had a lot more down force which prevented me having any sort of run down the back straight but I was able to get a really good run out of the slower corners and on the last turn I was able to bolt out of the corner and get him into T1. From then on I passed kcender who was having a few problems and set my focus on Matthew and grat who were having a great time fighting. Eventually due to lapped traffic and setting some decent times I was able to tag onto the back. Grat made a mistake and let me through as he was lapped and not to later I was able to tag onto the back of Matthews car. Not for to long as he pitted, I considered pitting but my car had hit it's sweet spot and thought traffic would affect Matthew. I went on until lap 26 and pitted but on my in lap I was slowed by traffic and lost 8tenths. Bolted on some fresh rubber and some fuel I was glued to the timing monitor as I could sense Matthew would be in or around me as I came out. Low and behold he flew past me as I left pit lane and had a healthy 1.5sec advantage. On fresher tyres I soon caught up but couldn't get him. For 2 laps we were pretty much nose to tail but on the final lap I got an extremely good run coming onto the straight and got a toe. We went side by side through the next few corners which was sketchy as I was on the outside. I ran out of room and grip and Matthew held on. Great race all round really enjoying the strategy element. If anyone has a reply could they send it my way or post the last lap up.
