Ilike to keep the oil pressure up while waiting for the flag to rise, about 4k, not that I have any evidence that it does anything.

You are quite low on rev after each shift, below 8000 the H16 is not making much power. I guess that is part of your acceleration problem combined with the conservative redline you set yourself. Taking the engine slowly to 10500 shouldn't be a problem, spiking the revs seems to blow more engines for me than running them high consistently.

The racing between Enrique/Michi and Greg/Dag was absolutely amazing. After 25 laps you could have covered each pair with a blanket at the finish line. GPL doesn't get any better or more inspired than that.

Cheers Pepe, that was a fun run today. Thanks also to Enrique for putting up a good fight.

Let's take it from the top though. Got away as good as everyone else, may have been able to pull off a pass, but got stuck in the T1 traffic jam. Followed Frank around for two three laps, but passing into the corners is though at this place. I managed to get a run through the kink and was lining up an attempt when Frank lifted early into Canada Corner. Surprised I dropped the right side onto the dirt and had to fight to slow the car down while keeping it under control. In the end this led to me taking the escape road instead of attempting to make the corner.

This excursion lost me two places, one I regained quickly going down the front straight, the other was Enrique which turned into a 20 lap battle. Initially he was 7 seconds up, which I could close over the course of 14 laps. Once on him I was faced with problem that he had a very good exit out of the final corner. Even with the Eagles power I had to do it on another part of the track. I figured I got 5 laps to study and put him under pressure.

Turns out that I had the advantage from T6 until the penultimate corner and after some laps I got a run through T7. Enrique took the middle line into T8, i went for the outside and caught the grass verge. Again lucky to keep control of the car I only lost a second or two. At that point I had the track somewhat figured out and managed to claw back the gap in 2 laps with a mighty S1 and was on EF by T5. That lap or the next the pressure got to him and he lost the rear into T8 just enough to let me put the Eagle beside the Brabham heading into the Carousel. Sure the next 3 corners are to the right and I'm on the outside of all of them, but there are 2 laps to go and I have no intention off conceding the place I worked so hard to get, neither is Enrique, so side by side into the Carousel we go. Managed to get through it too and by the time we got to the Kink I had the spot.

Managed to get a comfortable gap, just to hit the gate on my shifter going down the gears for the final time into Canada. Somehow managed to hold onto the car and bring home P5.

All in all happy with the results. I was even able to catch Mike from what Pribluda told me which is always a good sign.

Did Bob Holada use 2 shift + R?

In the replay analiser mechanical tab:

Bob Holada_67 makes a Shift-R? (detection method A - mech problems fixed)

and later:

Bob Holada_67 makes a Shift-R? (detection method A - mech problems fixed)

Was this permitted?

If I understand the rules correctly as long as it happened in the pits it's OK.
Shift-R (D2 only):
There are 3 sessions to a race weekend. Qual-1  Warmup and Race.
In any of the 3 sessions any lap ended out of a pit box ends that session for you. if you finish any lap in a pit box, you may shift-R or ESC and go out again.
