Unlike many it seems I was reasonably comfortable coming into the server. Knew i couldn't get below the 10s but figured I had enough pace and car conservation to get through the race.
Had my fuel numbers and predicted tyre wear sorted. Setup saved... good to go.
Ballsed up qualifying like an amateur, sorry to make everyone wait another 4 min as I crossed the line without a representative time with fees seconds to go. Managed to at least get near the front.
The race itself was pretty cool. I can't deny I was cursing buller after he pushed pretty hard in the first few corners of a long race, decided to give it up before the hairpin which w as d both a good and bad option. Good because it meant we had an epic battle for several laps before he had issues, bad because it gave the lead pack a small break.
Closed onto the back of the pack as Keith, freezer and Joe raced hard. Was cool to see side by side clean racing.
Joe made the mistake of pitting so closed onto freezer for a great series of laps. I think I was technically past him 3 times, cleared him once but had a very small rub on the fence and he was past again. Great racing as I was way quicker in the first sector, he was quicker in the second and we were about even in the last. Ultimately meant we raced within a second and a half for the last part of the race.
Bit annoyed to miss the podium but also glad to have had a great race.
