What a race^^…….
I was to careful on my fastest qualifying lap in the last sector.
I decided to start on primes. Got out of turn 1 fairly cleanly, however I got spun around at the end of the first straight which moved me down to P7.
On pace I was definitely down on @ljkobrien during the first stint partly because I had to wait until @mrgrieves, @ms20 and @maddogmolloy pushed each other out of the way to make space for me, I didn’t want to get involved due to the risk of a crash^^.
I eventually passed them, however @maddogmolloy was able to keep and we had a two lap battle with him.
I was starting to reduce the gap to @ljkobrien after that, and passed him as he stopped. As he came out on the softer compound, I was easy prey for him on my used hard tires.
Then I just kept following him and had a good 6 sec gap as we both pitted on the same lap for inters.
4 laps later he spun, due to the heavier rain, although I that, I decided to do another lap on the inters which turned out to be fatal, my 18 sec gap had been reduced to 5 in just one lap…….
Switched back to the inters 9 laps later but it was impossible to reduce the gap to @ljkobrien sufficiently.
