Had a decent race.
First few laps good fun battling cars around me, after getting a bizarre penalty at the start, to which I have literally no idea what was for. I went around the outside and had no contact with anyone, and then was carefully around the tight right hander, and got a 10 second penalty for causing a collision? Maybe the game thought I had turned in on someone, but would love to see any video people might have with me in from the start. Seems unlikely though, as there weren’t many behind me at that time to see it!!
Had some great battles with @strunk27 both on the track and strategy wise with me on a 1-stop and him on a 2-stop, which looked like getting quite tasty at the end until @strunk27 evidently made some mistakes.
Lost loads of time trying to let @jonny705 and @ms20 lap me cleanly, and have to apologise to @ms20 as he says, I slowed to let him go round the outside into one of the big stops, but then misjudged my breaking on the inside (marbles / dirty track etc) and very slightly touched him causing him to have to take to the run off and cut across the chicane.
Really sorry if that impacted on the outcome at all @ms20. I just misjudged it by a fraction, and that’s all it takes.
Overall was quite happy with 7th in the end, and given literally 10 laps of practice, to have only had two half spins (losing approx 10 to 15 seconds) throughout the race, was pretty decent. Will try and get some more practice in for next week’s race as would get to be closer to the pace again.
