What a long days racing
Talk about getting bored between heats
with 11 heats of tourers and a heat of Mardaves to get through, you have time to rebuild the darn car between races.
Was annoyed I didn't get any practise, they cut it short and certain people wouldn't get off the track when they'd had 5 minutes
First qualifier was my practise and I lost a load of time on the first few laps, I was drawn off to the left every time down the straight.
Basicly spent every round of qualifying struggling to get a clear run, stuck behind a certain orange car for most of each run
I was on the same lap but started behind him and was obviously faster but he'd never let me through, only managed to out qualify him on the last run by being right up his back side as we finished the run, the other rounds I would get past then collide with him or a couple other guys thats always think they own the track and are never in the wrong.
The top 5 or 6 finals were incredibly close, each one had about 6 seconds between qualifying first on the grid or last in 10th. I was 3 tenths of the D final
but pole in the E wasn't bad.
My final was kind of uneventful, got away to a bad start but kept my lead then stayed ahead for the whole race, lapping most of the field and setting a pretty good time for a final.
It was nice to have a run at a big event but it wasn't really fun. The track had no hard braking zones and was impossible to pass people on, which made qualifying incredibly difficult. They needed to tell a lot more people to move over and let faster cars through. They also need a new track designer
they didn't use the hall to it's full and most corners were the same, fairly simple loops and then a big sweeper to straight to sweeper. They don't seem to have heard of chicanes or hairpins....
