Exactly how a TC championship should look

Also, this was the 4th different winner ( both driver and make of car) in as many races :banane:

The standing shows me in 9th place with 24 points and Pascal in 10th place with 25 points. scratch
I'm happy with that but perhaps it needs checking. lol!

A good race with lots of action all the way to the checkered flag. I must have picked up some damage early on as I couldn't keep up with the Holdens on the back straight and then later in the race the rear of the car was very loose again most likely due to damage as the tyres were not worn. Thiago thanks for waiting but I really didn't expect you to, I think that is just touring car racing and these things do happen.
Thanks for the broadcast :top: and Congratulation to Matthias.

Thank you gentelmen for superb racing experience- finaly I took part in HSO race event cheers
Never raced before with racetrack so crowded, but as expected it was a very fair and clean race.

My GTV Alfetta was doing well in the twisty section of the Pukekohe, but straight line speed was my weak spot- there was no point to block or fight with Holdens, Rovers or Mustangs as it would just look silly Wink

As a newcomer my goal was to finish the race in one piece and avoid mistakes.
I'm more than happy with the result- I wasn't expecting to score any points :champ:

Congratulations to Matthias, Grant and rest of the pack !
Hope to see you again in NZTC Series in 2 weeks Smile

Great racing last night! Matthias, the racing was brilliant, had me gripped right till the end :top:

Good result for me and was good to see Pascal getting the mustang up into 3rd, curious as to what you made of the temperatures of the tires? I just couldn't control them.

Well done Matthias, thoroughly deserved Wink

Thanks again Jonathon for organising and the brilliant broadcasting cheers

No problem at all John, forgot about that moment half a lap later, it looked a lot worse on the broadcast than it actually was.

Well nice to hear it's over and done with. I reviewed it and I did definitely cut you off leaving none or maybe maximum half a car width (not enough). Maybe I though the extra strip was earlier on the outside, can't remember. Noticed you lost a place as well, but nice to see you made up for it. :top:

The racing otherwise is excellent trough the whole field.

Good too see a new pilot and fellow Pole at HSO. (I'm not a true Pole, more of an American Mutt, but still)

Friendly reminder on how to drive defensively good: Chose your line first. If you change your line in the middle of the braking zone, you are in the wrong. Then I won't feel bad for you if you spin.

Chose your line first, don't mirror drive.

Full race report is coming tomorrow! Thanks everyone for tonight, some great racing in there. Smile

Already had chose my line,but was not expecting you to dive in so late for a corner you would not have made apart from using me as your safety barrier.but thats touring car racing for you. :D
