Normally i would be happy with an 8th place finish
but to say im dissapointed is a big understatement ...... Mad

Ive never been more confident in a car than i have with the Alfa
at Keimola i know i was capable of 5th place .....

I Qualified in 5th place and was doing consistant laps in the race
i knew that i would probably get swallowed up at the start with all the S5000
cars around me so i kept well to the left so there was plenty of room to overtake .... scratch

I Have watched the video and see that Ludo hit me i know this was a pure accident
as someone hit him but i ended up going off the track around the barrier for what seemed like
an eternity i was not even sure if i could get back on the track from there ..... affraid

I Came back to the track in 20th place i then had the long task of fighting my way back up the field
i had some great battles with Yannick ,claus ,once again i ended up trading tarmac with my friend Paul .... :yaa:

The Alfa is awesome at this track although i was struggling with tyres towards the end as was Paul
and eventually managed to break away for 8th place .....I Was catching Iker
i also had way to much fuel in the tank, i think had it gone for another 5 laps or so
i would have been on Ikers tail maybe ......

I Had a couple of small spins nothing major but i did manage to get punted by the boss
sorry about that Gui i really was trying to get out of the way for you im just glad that you where
able to continue Wink

I Think had the Alfa been in the right hands i think it may have been possible
for a p3000 to be on the podium but not sure about an overall win ......

My aim for this race was to catch Frank in the Championship for the P3000 win
Luckily for me it was Franks Turn to retire from the race ...Well done to Iker
so Frank are you still up for that 3 way thingy ....

Well Done Sasha :first: Gui :second: Carlo :third: IKER :first: :drink: :flag:

Dear "wheel's friends",
I must bag your pardon for the unintentional crash I caused just after the start: suddenly my game freezed just on the braking step for less a second, but enough to couse a disaster. Sad
I haven't yet watched the replay and so I do not know who I hit. I'm very sorry!
I hope It doesn't happens anymore. pale

Well, after the time I put in I thought I was going to do much better than I did. I must've had 5 or 6 good setups for this race and I picked the worst one. The car was pushy and loose all at the same time! Then when the tires began to go off I was really in trouble. I did have some fun with my buddy Carl as he recovered from the first turn incident ( I think you would've been at least top 5 too Carl) and began moving up. I seemed to be giving up positions by making small mistakes and when I saw Carl in the mirror I knew it was just a matter of time. I had a few good racing laps with Iker as well but I just couldn't keep consistant.
Glad that one is over even though I liked the track

On to Silverstone!

Ops!... I forgot to post some comments about this race, sorry. But there is nothing special to comment.

The best: 2 races with no mistakes (I'm gonna ask Mr. Piper for some extra money Laughing ). I think this is the best I can do.

While I was training, I thought this would be a terrible race for me due to my poor pace. I did a better qualy than I expected. I was really affraid during the race start. I saw a very narrow track and a lot of cars there. But I survived the first corner and my feelings were improving from this point. Ludo made 2 mistakes, but I was sure he was fast enougth to pass me again, so I didn't try to fight with he, because I didn't want to take any risk.

I feel that a 6th position is a great result for me at Keimola.

Congratulations for all of the braves that finished the race! :clap:

See you in Silverstone!
