Quali – 1st
Great first lap in quali, resulting in a 1:09.799, which was 2 tenths off my ultimate best. I was happy enough to sit in the garage for the rest of the session, with a quick go at the end, but couldn’t beat it.
Race – 1st
Got a decent start, at least good enough to not get hit and keep ahead of Luke. My pace was okay, but @Electrolite was able to keep with me for the first 5-6 laps, but finally I could get some breathing space of about 3 seconds. Almost was caught out by @Bradley13, whom came out of the pits, flying across the track, narrowly missing the front of my car. A lap or so later, I was almost taken out by Johnny.
Saw that Luke was pitting on lap 12, possibly trying to get the jump on me, but I kept my cool and pitted on lap 14, still maintaining a good gap to him. This was the stint in which I pulled away more. I felt the car was much better than when I was on options. The race was a little bit quiet thereafter, with the odd hairy moment when lapping Johnny…I honestly didn’t know if he was trying to take me out…
Was considering pitting for options towards the end to cement the fastest lap, but only fully decided to do it when Luke had done it before me. I had nothing to lose, and it meant I could have some low-fuel, new tyre fun and get a 1:11.765 :)
Good, fun race. It was nice to pick up the battle with Luke from where we left it in the Collantine Cup at Interlagos, though this time I was able to get the upper hand ;)
Driver of the day has to be Luke, for me. Special mention to Shane, as I know how difficult it is to drive without any sound.
