TPC's Resident Mad Bloke
- Isle of Wight, UK
Aye. I was very scared when I had provisional pole after quali. Laps kept coming in slowly. That Q lap was probably the nicest I put in between practice, q and the race. I suppose that IS when you want your best lap.I saw!!! Outta p2 as well
But I didn't belong up the sharp end; others made mistakes and I came out lucky. After a few practice races lunging the Aston (very quick in the slipstream) into T1 I felt confident of leading the race even if only for a few corners.
I had to go and say that out loud, of course.
Cold. Tyres. Completely forgot about 'em and took T1 at MAXIMUM ATTACK just like in the practice races. I didn't anticipate the oversteer and lost the car completely.
I wouldn't have minded that so much but I drove like an idiot for the whole first lap. I made a stupid move on sunshineonleith, and another stupid move on ChevyHeavy, basically taking them out of contention. I'm not happy with myself for over pushing and ruining races. I would have been better off backing out a little and letting the rhythm come to me.
Still, regardless of my black flag worthy shenanigans, there was some great action. There were enough cars running into trouble that I got to do a lot of battling, and Chevy got his revenge, spinning on the karussel, completely hidden by the banking, I plowed straight into him, and we got to run together for the last couple of laps.
@GOTMAXPOWER untouchable again. Congratulations on another class act of a win.
@Granadier you did a great job putting this together, thanks for hosting.
@everyone else. Sorry I hit you. I was driving like a fool for serious stretches there.
Looking forward to photos shaming me for spinning unassisted in T2. Much love to everyone who came out.
