Little time to practice here. My problem in the first stint was that in was using 1st gear in two corners instead of one and problem no.2 at the last corner was using 2nd gear instead of 3rd. This way I allowed Joseph to catch me. After T1 we ran into traffic and a M3 and Saleen I think blocked me so Joseph stoled 1st place from me. At the pits...OMG tragedy. I forgot what my ignition button was and the pit crew wouldn't put fuel in. Also I had to swith to no repair on the board and put fuel from 80 L to 100 (good that i checkd how much the car was using at mid race, otherwise I would have run out). Anyway pit 78 seconds, I said ok forget about 1st place. I was surprised to see Joseph about 6 seconds in front so I floored it. Again some minor traffic problems and soon after finally finding correct gear for each corner I managed to get close and I set my overtaking point (straight after T1, I was faster through T1 and also on the straight, even if my radiator was set to 4 and 7500 RPM), but Joseph closed a little on the limit my line so I had the outside line. Also again towards the finish I got close enough to pass but I hit a little sand and there you have it. In conclusion very nice race, and I can't wait for more of this.
Btw Joseph :)) 4 L left after I passed the finish line :D

I'm very sorry Francisco but if you look at the replay from my car you'll see I was spun twice by Claus in the 1'st lap. WTF? TWICE? Don't know what was that, personal self esteem or just a rookie trying to steal a position on the way to nowhere. It's not that he had an inside line or something. Just run into me twice for no reason.
The second time I was really pissed of and pushed my clutch not to kill the engine and I didn't pay attention to you.
It was my mistake but given the circumstances...I really don't know what to say anymore.
I DNF because in second lap a car apeared from nowhere in the middle of the track ( lag I guess ); one of my wheels came off so there it was for me.

wow amazing race :D i am sooo happy i spinned 3 times :x really. it gave me a hell of a last minute racing at the end. about 5 laps of inferno :D very close combat with John, Mark, Tom and Adam i think. I'll have a look at the replay and definitely I'll include sequences from this great fight into a movie i want to make (hopefully soon :D)
And on the last 100 meters it was heart pumping with Mark. 0.063 behind him :D
I can't wait for more of this :D
too bad about what happened in T2. Luckily for me in T1 Scott went wide so I took charge. Janko put pressure on me for quite a while. We were a pack of 4 or 5 cars in about 3 seconds. My pace was good but I felt they were pushing me. my setup is faulty in 2 or 3 very important corners and i saw where Janko was catching me. at some point he makes a mistake and looses contact. Scott was coming strong and passed janko. after a few laps he caught me and we had a nice fight. he passed me but i gained my position on the next straigt. couldn't hold my line as i wanted and i went wide and scott passed me for good.
janko was catching and he was a few seconds back when he pitted. when i entered the pits i hit the wall and put the car in R. it costed me about 10 seconds. just enough for janko to pass in clear. i exited and Kent was in my tale. on cold tires i managed to keep him back till they got warm. after that we had a nice race. scott as janko sais didnt change tires and i believe he was mad or someting and disco'd. very nice race but made me very tired :D
see you at the next one.
Nice race while lasted. Great battles with Milan and Denis.
I know now why I broke my engine (second time) and also I learned tonight how to make a pit and not loose 20 seconds at each pit. I am a noob. But one learns while alive :)
Tomorrow I hope I'll give you hell at GTX.
See you on the track.
