Great job @fortbo
It's been a while since I posted here so I've got a couple to mention now
End of August the SLK Cup went to visit my home track, Zolder in Belgium.
Being the only Belgian in the championship meant all eyes were on me. It all went well, but again the top 3 was just a bit too fast for me. In both races I came in 4th place.
Then on the 18th of September it was again time for a race for the Belcar Skylimit Sprint Cup and this time they went to the Nurburgring GP. It was raining in the morning, so I was again in trouble on my intermediate tires, but I did fairly well in my races. 19th overall, 3rd in class and in race 2 I finished in 11th position and 2nd in class.
I must say, in the dry this track is so amazing. Best track I've ever raced on with the SLK!!
And then two weeks ago I had another race for the SLK Cup on the Zandvoort track.
The qualifying was wet and I got my very first POLE POSITION
I was 1.2 seconds faster than the guy in 2nd and he was again 1 second faster than the guy in 3rd.
Unfortunately it did not remain wet. First of all I messed up the start of race 1 (nerves probably) and then I lost some places in the first laps, again in 4th behind the 3 main title contenders.
Race 2 was amazing again with battle from 4th to 12th place, so the smallest error made you loose places. I lost 2 places because the guys behind just had more pace on the straight in 2 laps so I finished 6th
Race 3 I made a bad start again (strongest point all year long but this weekend the starts just did not go well) and lost 1 place. I was seeing the top 6 battle right in front of me, but I just could not get close enough to launch an attack.
This championship is becoming so competitive at the top it's amazing, but also frustrating if you just can't find that tiny bit of extra pace on race day.
On to the last race of the season, in November. I'm currently 5th in the championship and because we have 1 result scrapped, it means that mathematically I still have a change to become champion, but it would mean that all 4 guys in front of me do not finish any race, so very unlikely
Will fight hard to keep 5th though.
