|Series:||GT3 Cup [Euro]|
Jumped in this one 30 mins before the race, tweaked the default setup abit and found I had a half decent pace. Quali was decent, 4-5 of us broke away at the front and we were all fairly equal on pace so managed to get a clean lap in early. Just could not nail the variante alta until my last lap, was nearly 9 tenths up but ran out of fuel before I got there.
Start was decent, managed to stay in 3rd where I stayed until about 10 minutes in when Ari cruised up behind me. We had a cracking little battle for a few laps, he had the legs on me in the middle sector by a fair bit but I just positioned my car for the bottom of the hill and he couldnt quite get me. We then both had a moment in the approach to variante alta, I ran abit wide but in my mirrors I see ari half spin. But he soon caught me again due to my front tyres being shot. In the end he punted me around on the last chicane with a lap to go but I was defending hard and by which point having to brake early so was no problem, he took his drive through on the last lap and managed to stay ahead for 3rd because I was spluttering home with no fuel (again), undersold in the department again. But it was fun.
Grats to CJ and Xavi, different class.
