Well, it was an interesting race. The track is great fun to drive but also very hard to master. I'm yet to master it.
I had a new PB on qual but that was enough only for P3. Got off the grid well, but Gabor hit the 2nd bollard in T1 and I had to slow a bit. That let Greg closer to me, and I think we had a contact in the Esses. I will check the replay.
In the first laps I tried to keep pace with the leaders, and to keep Dean behind. Later a few seconds gap opened both ahead and behind me. Then Gabor had a moment and I was all over him. I just missed the opportunity to pass him, and as he was faster, he could build a healthy advance quite soon. Then the was off in the Esses and I was away with 2nd.
The strange thing is that just before he made that mistake I also had a scary moment and also Dean retired at about that time. There must have been something in the air :D
So I was safe 2nd with no real chance to catch the fast and consistent James. At that point Greg was third a long way behind me. I drove a few good laps and was closing to lap Andy, but then I slid off the track after the bridge and got trapped on the hillside. I spent long-long secs trying to get back on the track as I tried to avoid the reset option. After 20s of trying I gave up and hit reset...
My luck that Greg also had problems a few laps earlier so my position was still safe, but my chances on a lucky win were totally vanished.
In the last part of the race James lost 10 secs, then about 15 secs again in the last lap. I drove qualy laps to close the gap, but that was impossible.
Well done James, great drive. Congrats on your win. Thanks all for coming. Syracuse next week.
Qualified 2nd, and knew the only chance I had to beat Gabor was the start. Had a good start and it looked like Gabor had a problem at the start and I was able to get around him. Then out front trying to keep Gabor behind me was a challenge as he was quick around the track. After watching the replay it seems he had a moment in the 2nd turn and hit the tires but only lost 3 seconds. Then a few laps later he got unlucky yet again in the same turn and pity was retired. The rest of the race was all about keeping the car on the track and was succeeding at doing that. Had a huge moment heading up to the corkscrew and lost about 10 seconds in the closing stages of the race. I was back on my way then trying to make up time that I had lost until rounding the last turn to take the final lap my tachometer started to show me the car was running low on fuel. So the last lap was all about keeping the car running by tiptoeing around the track, one of the longest laps of my life. Thankfully I was able to get the car all the way around for the win, as that would of been a disastrous mistake. Congrats to the podium.
Thanks for the race, the track is hard but a lot of fun to drive. Won't be able to participate in next weeks race as it is Thanksgiving and I'll be out of town at the time. So hopefully be able to race with you guys then.
Congratulations James! You did a fine job.
That was a tough race for me. I still need work on my starts. About the only thing I seem to be doing right is that I haven't hit anybody. I was worried that I had somebody on my left so I hit the tires instead of possibly wrecking somebody else. Luckily Dean got by me. The tires almost threw me back into his path. We didn't touch Jani.
I'm starting to think I need to change cars. I'm not particularly comfortable with the Lotus and I can't seem to get any heat into the tires. There also seems to be a point when bringing the tire temps up that the car starts oversteering.
I had five pretty lousy laps. I was glad that after the first lap reset I made it through the rest of the race without another reset. I'm also pleased that the higher than I deserved finishing position made up for last weeks poor finishing position.
I finally got it together over the last ten laps and finished the race fairly well. It wasn't until James caught up with me that I finally started running some real good laps. I didn't want him to lap me and I didn't want him close enough that he might get even faster because of a slipstream. My will to stay on the lead lap was greater than his to lap me. Which should be expected considering he had the race under control and there was no point ruining it trying to put me a lap down.
I had a pretty good time even though I ran most of the race alone. I've cured almost all of the frame rate problems I've been having up to this point. I don't think I had a single stutter after the loss of a few frames in the first 10-15 seconds of the race. Once I get a new video card or find the right video drivers I should be able to turn up the anti-aliasing and anisotrophic filtering. Then I'll be having more fun!
Thanks everybody for letting me in on the action. I won't be able to make it next week. Gotta go feasting with the family. I had been looking forward to driving a Ferrari at Syracuse.
