Incident between Roy and Iestyn was one of the strangest I had ever seen.  Iestyn had a slow spin after the 2nd tile banking. Roy had little time to avoid Iestyn and clipped him.
When they came to rest they were both facing in the wrong direction on opposite sided of the track. They could not see each other. At more or less the same time they reved the engine and dropped the clutch to make a quiick spin to turn the car around. They collided in the center of the track.. Iestyn was able to continue but Roy lost a front wheel.

Being quick was certainly not necessary today.  My plan was no different than  some of the other D2 drivers  FINISH.  and a little luck I guess.  At the start I had to argue with Richard B. about taking last place.  I won and did two very cautious laps.  I hope I didn't put any pressure on you Richard.
Made my only mistake when I did a half spin on exit somewhere.  But no harm done. I then put it into auto-pilot and commenced to cruise.
One miscalculation was how much fuel I would need.  As the race was winding down I saw that I would run short. I had expecting to get lapped more often. So made a quick stop to fill the tank. I knew this track well enough that even when my mind wandered  I was still able to drive safely. And I hope we never come back.  Very happy with 6th. :yahoo:

Since this track has so many tricky and dangerous spots I'm not worrying about how fast but how slow can I go and still do 75% of the laps.  I'm happy with 3:10 lap times.   I even use full throttle at a few points.

I was hoping to continue my string of finishing races .   Early on Niky was  doing a fine job keeping ahead of me untill his engine expired. Found my self 12-13th with no one in sight. With reduced fuel load the car was getting loose,
Lost time with small mistakes.  With about 12 laps to go Don got by to take a position.  It looked like I may have been a little faster.  Don may have stumbled and I had a run on him before the "infield"  By the time I got past I was going way to fast for the hard right into the infield.  I went sailing off the track and into some very hard shrubbery that destroyed the car.  Feel like it ruined my season.  I should stick to less competitive cars   and not try to pass anyone.

To continue what Iestyn and John were saying.  I have also seen what John is referring to. Some of our fastest drivers do not look very smooth when I watch the replay from their car.  Is this a topic that was covered in SRMZ?
