Drivers' comments

it was a screenfreeze, at least over 50 % Race length solved. Before I was too unconcentrated and had 2 mistakes. My last laps were in 2010 and i found 10 seconds and a few mistakes were mandatory. Sid was already out of reach when i had to leave the race.

I really like this track and waited the race. I even had a few training sessions beforehand :) My qual started with a ruined fast lap (engine), but later I could run a good lap and that earn the pole. Sadly I could not make it onto the grid (real life.). Plus when I got back to the PC, I found GPL freezed... So my dnf was guaranteed :S

Congrats Syd!
