Since the Pistons broke (must be the name) so many cars in the beginning of the season we ended up driving in the Cooper. Roy already told us that it wasn't a good car for this track. So I settled for 6th. If Bo would have spun once more or burned a bit more fuel more it could have been 5th, I ended up finishing 20 mtrs behind him.
Kinda frustrating to see a car simply pull away on the straights when you're doing everything right. But glad I made only a few mistakes and kept the car in one piece. At least we collect some coins again, hopefully we can buy a better car in the not so far future. Great race from my perspective, all the lapped cars made good room to pass. Congrats to the podium, and thanks again Bo for keeping this great league alive.
I made it to the finish line! That was my goal after it didn't work out for me the last 3 races. Qualified 4th after Claudio beat me at the flag by 0.03 seconds. Guess he had a bad start or didn't want to take risk, without any trouble I slid into third at turn 1. Hit the guardrail slightly in turn 3, and was worried Claudio would pass me, but then he disappeared and a few laps later John disappeared. Then all of a sudden found myself in 1st position, and was chased by a number of guys. I remember Andrew bringing the heat on, but it was Mick who really put on the pressure. Since it is a hard track to pass, I figured just to stay on the line and avoid any big mistakes, knowing Mick would be behind me all the way. That worked out great until the engine started to smoke and I lost almost all power. Made it to the pits and Shift-r-ed. Got hit by someone in turn one and after that ended up in 4th. Too bad the engine didn't last 3 more laps, but hey, that's racing.
Congrats to the podium, very well done. Thanks to all the lapped cars, super job in letting me get by.
Just looked at the replay and saw that I hit Pepe when I turned into turn one. I'm so sorry Pepe, never saw you coming.
