one of my rare drives in honda. not the easiest to drive (for me) best i did in all offline practice was 28+ and scored a 29+ in official quall... good for 8th :P
opening lap, i go too wide and slide 500 meters while off track, and a small bounce allowed me to regain track and continue in last. at the S/F i wasn't sure if damage was something that would affect me later, so i stopped and Sh-R'd...

from there is was an overtake, an allowed overtake, attrition, attrition ... well you get the idea :)  at the end i wasn't going to catch the top 5 or 6, but Tames retired and i was gifted p5
amazing, the goals you can achieve when you want to 'just' finish :)

good job John/Claudio/BobS...
see you in France - enjoy the Break!

true words by Robert!  a champion is often the person, not 'point standing'  .... dealing with aging parents is not easy, and add poor health or health problems only increases the difficulty. i don't know how other countries deal with aging parents, but in USA it seems youth have little or no idea how to deal, and the solution is often 'put them away somewhere and let someone else take care of them' :(    and as i am rapidly becoming the 'aged parent' i am more acutely aware of how my kids/grandkids will be dealing with ME :P    

Roy - you need to do what NEEDS to be done. family is priority and you are in good standing with oAo/me and should have no worries about taking a break or when you return. best to you in most difficult times..

best i'd done pre-race was 26.2... couldn't match it, a lot of traffic, but no complaints as i don't think i would have qualified any higher seeing the times posted - wow!

green flag and Claudio got by a slow to get away Roberto, i backed off as there were only 40 laps to go :)
moved up thru BobS going off and Alex similar, but Alex was soon on my tail and challenging, i probably could have been a pain, as in similar cars there is only one place to overtake, and i don't think he could have done it.. but i was pressing to hold p4 and knew that wasn't going to do me any good, so i moved left and he was by, i suddenly relaxed and drove to finish. except BobS was now closing and near the end, i had to pick it up some - but again similar cars so i was able to hold p4

can't complain ~
grats to Ed/Roberto and Alex on a fine race and good job by backmarkers making room.

SPA67 next!

Rob, its fine that you take the time to post the 'complete txt' from the report, but do you know they are all available at the oAo website?
click on the schedule link, then at the far right is "R/A" for each race report ~
