Penalties
Race 1
Jeremy and DaveO had a side-to-side contact going up the esses, which saw DaveO get spun. Because there wasn’t much in it in terms of deviating from lines and it was side-to-side, I’m calling that a racing incident.

Season Standings
1. Kcender87, 600

2 x 17 lap sprints at the Glen (Boot Classic).

Weather will be a mild 15 and 17 - back in Super Soft territory.

Wally, better give this one a miss as well. Need a bit more recovery time after a surgery.
Just done a few laps there though. Really great track for these cars.

OK. Hope you'll be well enough to be back on track soon.

I hope I didn't cause any issues at the start of race 2. I got called away and thought I'd be back in time for the start.

In the season stats you can see that the person doing best relative to their past performance, punching above their weight if you like, is Mael.

Well based on the practice times I thought I might do well last night, but it wasn't to be.
A small glance of the wall in race 1 saw my suspension gone.  I full lap to get back to the pits then the repair
seemed to stall so I exited to the pits and subsequently got a 25 minute 'locked in pits' so race over.
Race 2 started better but I had a contact with Mathew though at the end of the back straight a few laps in which saw me go around.  Not long
after I had another small brush of the wall which this time took out my engine power.  I pushed on chasing Wally but couldn't
close the gap with around a second per lap slower times.
Some very minor contact seemed to cause a lot of damage in these cars!!

You and me both! Crashed out of both races from 3rd/4th position  :'(

Pre-race saw my game totally crash twice which turned out to be my GPU overheating. I have a USB cable plugged into the motherboard that was touching the middle fan on the GPU stopping it from spinning. Probably been like that a while but was hot yesterday. Used some tape just to keep the cable out of the way for now.

Race 1 was some really great racing with a few guys, particularly Mael until I over-steered into the wall; I thought I'd be fine as I had mostly straightened the car up on impact but the slight touch broke the front suspension.

Race 2 was having a really good chase on AGK, was finally super close going through T1 but a car coming out of the pits got right in our way resulting in me having to go over grass, almost hit a wall and completely loose concentration. I then cooked the rears which resulted in two spins  a damaged car and a 10 second penalty so was too pissed off to carry on.

Race 1 started very nicely after surprisingly qualifying 2nd. I fought off a spirited challenge from AGK, keeping my dreams of hunting Kcender87 vaguely alive when AGK started battling with someone else behind me and I managed to extend a bit of a gap. But eventually I got 2 wheels on an inside kerb on a slow corner, which maybe unsettled me enough to oversteer into a wall and break my suspension. Had to pit for repairs, but stupidly I didn't take the opportunity to change tyres too. By the end of the race my rears were very worn, and I had another spin and some near misses.

In race 2 I wimped out and went for softs, and had a slightly slower but much more consistent race. The softs still wear, but seem to wear more evenly front to rear.
