Drivers' comments

Mosport isn't a favourite track of mine because of T2 but in the 65's its a really nice, flowing track.
Quali went as expected, 5th but not far off my pb. I got a good start & jumped Jani straight off the line & nearly got Gabor into T1 but opted for safety & held my line as tight as possible to avoid an incident.
I ran 4th & kept pace with the leaders as they fought for position. I narrowly avoided Gabor when he got too much curb in T2 & I realized the following group had to avoid him too as the gap grew to a comfortable 20s or so.
I was trying to keep up with the Barresi brothers & did ok until the usual errors started creeping in, 5 in all, all at T2!
In the end I had a tough time holding off Jani :D
Really happy with my pace & the podium. It was great racing at the front for a change, they were maybe some of the best racing laps I've had :)
Cheers Jani for hosting & all for racing.

I thought I would be good enough for a podium at least, though I hoped to finish ahead the Barresis, a lucky win maybe. But qualifying results swept away my dreams...
Even the cold reality was helped by the fact I had a really bad start, Roo passed easily, and Pedro had a chance on me too.
The first laps was everyone all together, sometimes hair-raisingly close. Then I had a bad exit from the Hairpin and a gap opened between the leading four and me. And it started to widen...
Then Gabor had a moment and I found him right across my way in T2. With Andy on my neck I tried to not waste any time, chose the right side to pass and felt everything okay but clipped the grass... Andy did the same trick and everyone but Sid passed us...
In the next lap Marco and Pedro fell back, a few laps later Gabor retired. That meant P4 for me with P3 (Roo) nowhere in sight but Andy in my mirrors - though in a healthy 3s distance.
My laps were getting better but I could gain on Roo only when he started to have problems. He got in sight for the last four laps, but I could not improve (hardly deliver my qual speed), so P4 was the best I could achieve.
Congrats to the winner! To Mark on the new league-record pole time! And all finishers. Thanks guys!

Fun race, my 100th! Fighting with Pedro all the time! :D Too bad, @ the end I was in front when Alex lapped me and Pedro passed me then. I lost him!

Marco de Vries 10/25/2012 22:27:25

Marco grats with 100
Alex with win!
And me with fun race.
Thanks all, cu nekst tiem.

Pedro van den Berg 10/25/2012 22:19:14

Time for my 100st race! Party!

Marco de Vries 10/24/2012 18:03:44

No 65mod installed sry. CY next one, GLA for Mosport :)

Lorenzo Melli 10/19/2012 10:45:27

As he won the two previous 1965 events, no Ferrari and Honda for Gabor.
