Well I'm gonna make my race report now because fuckin DAMN

Qualifying - P10
I was one of the last guys out of the pits in the rain, so I was sure I wouldn't get higher than 15th. So to get 10th, I was absolutely stoked!

Race - P4
What a race! I was able to keep it clean and find a few places at turn one, would've found more if not for @Nutzernutzt getting past me and @Fbyson following him through! After that it was about staying consistent and waiting for other people's mistakes. I chose to pit onto the mediums and go to the end because I know how well I treat my tyres ;) the hardest parts of my race were letting the faster drivers through, and trying to recover from setting myself at -1.7 laps of fuel while managing tyres and pace! But as most other people made 2 stops, I found myself in 5th catching @Dobby. However, I came across a wild @schumizeu who had spun at turn 2/3 and had to avoid him, but it was a free position. I tried and tried but I couldn't catch Dobby, and I had the chance to divebomb him but with 12 points at stake and @Cheekymunkey78 just behind me, I decided to play it safe. Fantastic racing from everyone, thankyou for the best race I've ever had. Races like these remind me why I', in AOR :D

Q- 7th
R- 7th

Qualifying lap was a mes, under pressure knowing it was my only lap made me make a few mistakes. Race start was ok, managed to hold my position. I felt I had good pace on the inters and by the pitstops, I was running 4th. Weirdly I was given a 5 second penalty for speeding in the pits even though I was at 50mph. I felt I couldn't manage the 1 stop and it probably didn't pay off as I fell down to 7th after the 2nd pitstop. My pace on the super soft tyres wasn't good as I thought and I was unable to make as many places up as I thought. I did make 2 really good overtakes on @Andrei Ivan and @Sabba7h around the outside of turn 8 which I was really happy. I am hoping to get my penalty removed which I think will promote me up to 3rd which shows how close a race it was today. My POV below:
