Qualifying
I spent quite a bit of time practicing around Silverstone, so it was really disappointing to completely mess up qualifying. 3 laps and all of them I messed up. Only set a 27.2 which got me P12... With that being said, even if I did set my PB, I'd have only gotten up to P10 so yeah.

Race
Had a good start by gaining two positions due to two others going off the track at T1 before I received a heavy bump by @Alex Shield going down the inside of T3. Thankfully I didn't get any damage but I wasn't too impressed so I made sure I outbraked him for T4 to remain in P10.

I was pretty happy with the opening of the race as I was following the train of @VSR_Jake, @FTR_Drez and my teammate @Roadhouse who were on the Softs, while I was on the Medium. They eventually pitted which left me to battle @TheMightyBucket- who I didn't fight too hard on Lap 10 as I didn't want to waste much time. I was expecting him to drive off but I was able to keep up with him and keep the pressure on until Lap 16, where it seemed like he just let me by just before the straight before Copse. Not sure why.

I pitted a lap after and came out towards the back, gaining on the controversy ahead between @Alex Shield and @Nexus1011. I was concerned I wouldn't be let past but thankfully I was and was soon able to pass Nexus and leave them to their battle. Then something weird happened as I started feeling unwell or something. I don't know how to explain it but for like the last 6 laps or something I felt a sort of lightheadedness/numbness. I probably should have quit but I wanted to finish the race. I don't know how but somehow I was able to while spending the rest of the race trying to shake the feeling off and in the end, I was able to finish in P9. That is before I dropped to P10 due to my penalty, losing the position to @TheMightyBucket- by just 0.022 seconds... Gutted haha.


Overall the race went much better than I expected and I finished in the points! So I can't complain too much. =)
