One thing is for sure, someone is going to have a hard time crashing into a wall here :sneaky:

I think it's hard to crash into a wall here, it's more likely that my front wing will be ripped off by someone's back :)

Gravel pits are non existent for me. If anything it might be me eating metal on Sunday.

That track sucks balls like a prostitute does ! Seriously, no grip anywhere. It's like a track designed for top speed, but that requires you to have silly amounts of downforce to not lose it in every frigging corner. Like...what the duck ?

This is my most hated track in the calendar. Thank God I will not see it back in 2018. It seems to be an easy to adapt track but some of the turns with the bumps are soo hard to go through fast.

Any no-shows so far? :)

Qualifying: P3

Full wet qualy and onto inters halfway through. I was 3 tenths up on Saketh and had provisional pole until the rain let up, fell back to third behind _D4mn_ and Dobby. Not a bad qualifying.

Race: P2


Race start was pretty racy. Moved left to avoid a car behind to the right and got caught on Return's wing - almost ended my race. Followed Dobby closely while _D4mn_ was leading in P3, then he crashed and I was P2. This, followed by a massive spin a few laps later coming out of T6.

Thank God there was a massive gap to P3.

Pit a few laps later and onto softs. Have a fastest lap battle with Dobby and do a 35.8, keeping it for the rest of the race. I'm literally averaging about one and a half seconds over Dobby with ten laps to go. 2 seconds separate us, Kaltomat gets blue-flagged as I pull up to him, he takes the inside line in T2 and I run into him. Yellow left front wing. So now I'm left with the job of limping to the finish line with P2 only.

Definitely would have been at least a massive fight towards the last lap.
