I fluffed quite a few laps in the middle of the session, either cutting a corner or coming up to other cars going slowly. I finally got in a decent but very cautious lap right at the end, which put me 5th on the grid, 1.2 seconds off pole.
Got an excellent start, getting up to 2nd before the long straight, though @moss-611 and @shyguy1992 got by under braking for the hairpin. I made contact with Blakeley, it was my fault since I was concentrating on the Mclaren. I remained 4th until the safety car period, when my teammate, @tongy95 and @abboracing were involved in a collision.
I pitted for primes, planning to do one more stop by the end of the race for another set of primes. I came out in 6th, and on the restart passed Tonge before turn 1, and also got ahead of @spud . I had a few battles with @olliekart and @electrolite , and I remember having a bit of contact with Electrolite at the hairpin, which I may have caused accidentally (hopefully not much inconvenience caused). After the final round of stops, I was 4th, behind Moss, Ollie and Shyguy, pushing as hard as possible to catch Ollie, but to no avail. Just as I was resigned to finishing 4th, it appeared as if Shyguy, who was showing as the race leader (and set to end Moss’s perfect run), had spun off the road, promoting me to 3rd. From then on, I concentrated on bringing the car home, and in successfully doing so, took my first career podium.
