Early race I was arguably slightly faster than Roy, but on the straight Roy always had the advantage ofcourse. Stayed close but when the fuel burnt off Roy went faster and it was harder to stay with him. Also the balance wasn't ideal with overheating tires at times, overdrove/pushed too much arguably. After halfway we lapped Ed, Enrique and John, but then simply braked too late and went off at T1, spun in the grass, but didn't hit anything. Lost 8s but no damage. John sadly followed me, but hit a tree and had to retire. Tough luck.
After that the gap stayed around 8-9s, with Roy having the edge. Lapped cars were great, sometimes you have a misunderstanding or you catch a car in the wrong spot, but it's a hard track anyhow. Thanks guys. Michiel went in the barriers being distracted by me coming up I believe.
Grats to Roy and Lucky Racers, for their win, well deserved! Also great recovery drive by Iestyn to P3. Superb solid job by Frank in P4, also under the circumstances. Great teamresult.
Well done finishers, commiserations to the DNF's. Some late heartbreaks for Enrique, and Yannick losing a podium due to a mechanical failure. Also missed a few teamdrivers like Greg, Bob Simpson and Carlos. And get well soon Burt!
Thanks to Bruce for all the work!
