Nightmare. Mucked up quali timing albeit still got a close to maximum lap which put me in the tight bunch of people between a 1:31.7 and a 1:32.6.
Got a surprisingly good start after last years awful starts and was up from 10th to 8th after turn 4. Then there was mayhem in front of me which i initially avoided and was up to 6th but ran alongside someone and bumped off the track on the first part of the left-right-left and was last.
Aafter that it was an equal parts fun and frustrating race. i had good pace but really struggled on the option ms
making several embarrassing spins after initially catching and passing all way thru to @mrgrieves in 9th @ the time.
i kept on doing it too catching and passing people only to spin and undo all my hard work.
my prime stint was eexcellent and in the last 10 laps i was consistently in the 1:35 / early 1:36 bracket. It was too little too late though as i couldn’t catch odin quickly enough.
Reckon 6th was possible today but didn’t do enough practice on the soft and paid for it by spinning around like a twat all
