This race was an instant classic. Nice wide track with lots of overtaking opportunities. Good car that doesn’t try to kill you all the time, you would have to do something incredibly stupid to fall of track here (more about this later). The FWD car brings mortals closer to aliens because it’s easier to find the limits. And Speedy Chris got the tire and fuel settings absolutely perfect so we had at least three possible pit strategies. And we got 15 cars on the grid. I arrived late so I didn’t have much time for practice. But I knew that as long as I qualify in 2:06s I’d be starting mid pack. When the flag dropped I somehow managed to run 2:05.999, by far the fastest lap I did in this car. That was good enough for 3rd place on the grid behind Pekka and Mike. The start went well, I protected the inside through the first corner and glued myself to Mike’s bumper and started picturing the rat on the podium. That lasted exactly to the beginning of the second sector when I couldn’t see over Mikes car, forgot where on the track I was and outbraked myself off the road Fortunately I didn’t take anyone out. Rejoined the track around 11th place and started the chase. I was on a 6 laps/3 stops strategy so passing 2 stoppers was fairly easy and had couple of good battles with guys on the same pit strategy. When the pit stops went out of sync I saw myself as high as 2nd place. Towards the end when all pit stops were done I was in 4th place and had Speedy in my sight just 2 seconds ahead. But he lived up to his name and put in a solid last stint. Instead of gaining a position Pekka caught up to me and passed me on the last lap when my tires were too worn out from pushing hard. I would call it the best race if the GTS WRS season so far if I don’t count the 2.4hr Porsche race.
