Thanks for the races guys, this was epic fun! Too bad the field was so small but great fun nevertheless.
Due to a last minute aero change, the sprint race was a bit of a disaster for me, the car just kept throwing itself around in the hairpins. (Important lesson: do not muck about with last minute changes right before the race.)
Reverting to my original setup for the feature race went a lot better. She was much better behaved, albeit perhaps not as quick as she could have been. But the spring race taught me to value staying on track over squeezing out an additional second.
Starting from pole (as being last in the sprint race), I really enjoyed the battle with Maniak and BlackJack. An unfortunate bump saw me flying off and back to last in the final hairpin. Trailing the field, I was very surprised to round the corner after the back straight only to find the entire field spread out all over the track and grass!
(Car in front, car on the left, car on the right, where to go?!
The carnage and associated pitstops and penalties gave me 4th place and following MMJ's example of doing a long stint enabled me to exit the pit in 3rd, with Matt right at my gearbox. With Matt completely occupying my rear mirrors, I missed my brake marker for the corner at the end of the back straight so I had a spectacular slide across the track - flat spotting all 4 shiny new tires but still keeping it out of the cabbage. So I just settled into the last stint and finished 4th .... a result I was very pleased with after the disappointing results at Montreal last week. Overall a great race night to finish a very successful series!
