gee that corner coming onto the back straight is a tricky one, think I need to change my visibility out of the cockpit as I'm finding the apex rather difficult to find....

where did that 30.1 come from Phil :o

Well last month or 2 I felt I have been off the pace but still felt I was driving ok and after Shayne said he cruised past me last week I got to thinking and I looked at my brakes and I think they may have been slightly on for god knows how long so I added 3% of a dead zone to them and the time appeared, probably coincidence and I am just getting old :) and just got lucky

A huge apology goes to bradC whose quali I've messed up - I had heaps of extra speed and I was fairly confident (wrongly of course) that I can make it, however you seem to have taken a tighter line than usual...anyway, it was bad judgement on my part and apologies again!

Qualified 7th which wasn't bad but got out dragged over the first few laps to loose a few spots.  I started with full fuel and hards which enabled me to run 20 laps (the longest stint) and take the lead on lap 16 as others stopped.  Came out from the stop in 6th and now with mediums was able to up the pace a bit and gradually worked my way up to 2nd as people stopped etc.  Starting to think this was going to be a decent strategy. 
Did the second stop at lap 31 for more mediums but this time came out in 8th.  Had pretty decent speed but after a near faultless race made a couple of minor slips when battling with Joe to get home in 8th.
The 15 sec penalty from last week meant my battle with Joe was to no end anyway. 
Best shorty . . 7th  :(

A rubbish race for me. I smacked the wall in an oversteer moment at the end of lap 1, damaging my aero to such an extent that I could only do 275 kph max, so I pitted for repairs. That threw out my entire pit strategy, as since I started with a full tank, I couldn't take on much fuel, so the race essentially turned into a 1 stopper after the early repair with wasted time refuelling and then ending on hards when I had intended to go mediums. I could only manage a lousy 1:33.160 in the race  :-X
