    Terrific race Rob & Nico! I've just watched on the replay. ;)

    I'll do a write-up at some point.
  7. Rob Hermans SRP Manager

    Cheers, champ! :) I'm sorry we weren't more of a challenge to you...we weren't too far behind in the first few laps, but as soon as we started battling (read: Nico started making mistakes!), we seemed to drop away from you. Towards the end you were but one black pixel in the distance! :D

    EDIT: Provisional results added to ↑post#3:cool:

    Wow, i prepared a reply few days ago and i didn't clic on send... I must write it again ^^

    Then, Congratulation Sheepy! You were to fast at this race. Well done mate!

    I had a great race with Rob. I overtook him outside in turn two (nice move Nico!! i must congrats myself because nobody do it :D ).
    I was at 1 sec behind chris during first few laps but after i started to do lot of little mistakes. Rob was faster than me. When he tried to overtake me, i didn't resist. I hoped that he was able to catch chris but he didn't.
    I tried to pit before all drivers to catch rob. It worked. I overtook him after few laps in second part of the race but again when my tires goes off, i did some mistakes. A great battle with rob until the last lap where he overtook me!! Well done mate! It was a great and fair battle.

    Even if Chris is the champion this season, i would like to put high light on Rob.
    If i could give an award for "revelation of the year", without hesitation i give it at Rob.
    I was really surprised to see you at this level this season. You were not the fastest guy but always regular and on top.
    Rob is a fair guy. If you have a battle with, you know that never you will have a bad or hard contact. He is really fair and always careful.

    Ladies and Gentleman
    i'm happy to give the award of "Reveletation of the year"
    I would like to call on the scene....... Rob HERMANS!!!
    (Big applause)
    Come on Rob, tell us what you feeling right now!! :D

    Merci bien Nico, you're very kind. :)
    I was waiting on Chris's promised write-up before posting myself. I was pleasantly surprised with my performance...except crashing at Cascavel, but that's long forgotten now. Very happy with the outcome, P3 in the Drivers' and winning the Teams' championship is my best result ever.
    A special thanks to Warren Schembri for being such an excellent team mate; he attended every round, scored points in every round except one (same as me), and without that commitment we would not be top of the table. A superb debut Warren, well done!
    Chris and Nico were the class of the field, and most of us are completely out of your league...in fact let's ban those two from the next one to give us all a chance, eh? :p

    Big thanks to Aaron for yet another successful league, may it continue that way. :)

    Sorry all. Had a bit of a bad week in reality. Still, my problems are nothing compared to poor Jules. I'm so sad about this, been thinking about the poor lad everyday since it happened. :(

    Glad to say though, I think, things are getting better. I hope the same happens for Jules.

    Thanks for all the congratulations, it's appreciated. I will leave the race report but seeing as it was such an interesting season, with all kinds of noob shenanigans going on (punctures, crashes in pit etc...) I will make a full season report! So keep an eye out for that.

    See ya!

    Apologies for being a bit behind but I've had to go through my own personal issues this week and now just catching up on things.

    Firstly, well done to Chris! To have all those punctures and still win the championship. Top stuff!!

    Special special thanks to Rob. Right from the first online session we had, he was extremely helpful and patient and he helped me improve a lot! I could not have asked for a better teammate in Rob!!

    Thanks to Aaron for running the League! This was my first league and have to say that I really enjoyed it and learnt alot!! For the majority, it was good, hard but clean and fair racing by everybody regardless of how fast we were and there was always someone to race with on the track. Marco at Johor, Murat at Zandvoort, Andy and Aaron at Mid-Ohio.

    Till Sunday!!
