Course bien mal engagée puisque je rate mon départ (comme presque toujours...) là à cause d'un repositionnement réclamé par le programme, à 2 secondes du feu vert... Bref je perds des places et me retrouve 18ème. Les premiers tours sont un peu confus çà part dans tous les sens et je reprends 3 places...

Un peu de lutte avec Alberto, puis je le dépasse et je me lance à la poursuite de Ben Paulet, que je sais pas trop loin devant moi et j'aimerais bien refaire la bagarre de la dernière course...
Rien à faire, David semble même avoir du mal à suivre Ben (très rapide en ce début de course) et moi je me fais distancer peu à peu par David... Tempis, course solitaire à l'ususe...

En effet, il ne se passera rien jusqu'au 20ème tour où je vois mon Ben quasiement à l'arrêt avant la ligne droite en montée... Je le double et pendant quelques tours je me dis "il va me revenir dessus le cagnois et çà va chauffer"... Non même pas, il m'a laissé tomber :D Dommage!

Les derniers tours j'ai tenté de m'accrocher aux classe A qui n'étaient pas trop loin, mais pas possible... Et les classe B étaient trop rapides aussi pour moi... Neutral

Finalement mon meilleur résultat de la saison, en raison de quelques absences et de circonstances favorables, mais pas la course la plus sympa en terme de bagarres et de luttes... Toujours bon à prendre quand-même malgré tout.

Bravo à Ben T. pour sa victoire et Pierre pour la sienne (Au fait, je crois qu'il faudrait 1 point de plus pour Mercédes aux constructeurs... Sauf erreur)
Merci à tous et à HSO :top:

Pierre termine 5ème en effet : 8 points

Je termine 10ème : 1 point

Nous sommes tous les deux sur Mercédes, nos points s'ajoutent : total 9 points

Pas infaillible moi non plus, mais casse bonbons, c'est sûr :D Wink

Wow what a race!

Only installed the track before practise and had a reasonable practise, qualy was a bit average but the warmup was incredible a 1:15.0 really shocked me considering and gave me hope for the race and made a good start.

Terrified of hitting anybody at the 1st corner and after 1 or 2 laps was fighting with David, trying to keep a gap after a while, then started catching Greg, he must have made a mistake somewhere as I gained 5 or 6 seconds suddenly, that was a very nice battle with Greg, very polite great racer, he was quicker on the tight bits and I was quicker on the fast bits, I tried to make room if he was making a move and vice versa. Very nice of him to wait when I got tapped round to rejoin the fun, could have had 7th if I had held him off but Antoine was catching very quickly and is a very aggressive (in a nice way) racer and quickly got past in a gap I thought was too small, excellent driving. very very happy with my result cheers

Nice to see a Holden win as well! I saw Gui crash in my mirrors and thought who the hell is in the top 3 haha.

Grats to all finishers and all people who even I lapped! affraid and superb work by the podium finishers.....you are aliens lol!

I remember that bit, you had kinda overshot the braking point in turn 9, the sharp left hander after the downhill secction. And I thought you were covering the inside so I couldn't sneak by in T10. Turned out you moved to the outside where I was already commited. I thought f*** it, lets go for this keyhole, and well it worked :D

Yeah by then I was struggling with my tyres and braking (was all over the place, fronts locked at some and rears locked on others! affraid)

I saw you when I was braking and thought I had it at T9, but then saw you hadn't passed me then so I will defend a bit and moved out to try and make the corner (Steering was iffy at times due to increased entry speed lol) thinking you would switch right but instead went right round me!

I figured out the Holden is rather heavy on the brakes and difficult to slow down without making a hash of it but getting the hang of it lol!

(PS Tiago....round review lol, plenty of action all through the field!)

I'm still astonished that a Holden won the race. I really suck with this car.
I haven't calculated the fuel right, so had to pit at about 10 laps to the end... and then stop and go because I entered to fast on the pits Embarassed
Also an Alfa driver, coming out of pits didn't looked at the mirrors (I supose) and kept going left till I hit him... more small damage, but was able to finish... last :smil20:
Still I had fun, congrats everyone :top:
