Well I normally do a lot more practice but I hadn't today, I was about just under a second off the pace before quali. In quali the first few laps I followed Shepherd round and stole a few of his lines and found some time, about 5 tenths worth, so I was really happy with fourth in the end. The start went alright, I wanted to get past Nico really early so Andy could run away, which didn't happen, I never got into a good enough position to sneak through without letting Seb or Rob through. About 4 laps through I made a small mistake in the final sector which cost me 2 positions. From then I decided to save tyres as in practice I got a puncture 11.75 laps in I got a puncture and I needed to do 12 laps first stint (I expected an extra lap on the race). I held back for a while and then decided to attack, which quickly ended up really bad for Seb (sorry again). I waited a little bit and lost a position to Aaron and couldn't figure out how to drive my newly shaped mini so lost so much pace. I overtook Nico after their crash and heard Andy had 60secs damage repair. On the 12th lap Chris' front left blew and mine was about to blow as I overtook him into a right hander which was really awkward trying not to go straight on. So I thought I was just about a net second, but as I came out the pits Geoffrey had come from nowhere and was second, and I thought it was Shepherd behind me but it was Dariusz so I was so confused at how I was battling Geoffrey and Dariusz for second and wondered where everyone else had gone. (I now realise they probably got 4 tyres changed). I had got more damage in the pits and the cold fronts plus a worn left rear tyre was horrible to drive, the middle sector was like ice. I managed to spin a Mini without touching the grass... and lost 4 positions, and Shepherd and Channer had reappeared behind me, I tried to let Chris by so he could catch Nico and steal some points from him as I knew I couldn't hold on with my car but I don't think he got the memo and we ended up battling for a while but both braking early XD Eventually after he got by, I struggled to hold Aaron behind me and went for pathetic spin number 2, I was now 6th all alone. To complete my day, on the last lap I forgot what corner I was at and drove straight into the gravel :/ So a strange day, 6 contenders for the win, 5 are involved in some kind of race destroying incident. Well done to Rob for getting through it and the like of Aaron and Dariusz for finishing strongly. Oh and Smile and Walk will stop crashing into each other soon.
