Drivers' comments

Great to see such a grid :thumbup: & to actually finish a race is quite something for me :)
I blew the engine in quali & that made me nervous for the race but I added a couple of additional gear changes to save some high rev moments throughout the race & it seemed to help.
I had spins all round the circuit but managed to keep the car in one piece, mostly. I ran a little deep into T1 while trying to pass Olaf but luckily he managed to avoid contact. Not so later in the race when I spun at Barbecue & chose to wait for the cars I could see to pass before I tried to recover but unfortunately more cars appeared & I was stuck in a poor place & Olaf ran into me :sorry: Luckily he was able to continue.

I felt the car was a bit twisted so I pitted to repair the car. I couldn't remember what gear to be in to repair the car & change tyres but managed instead to refill the tank & repair the car, so not a total fail ;)

After that I was already lapped. Happy to have finished. Shame I don't score points but a finish is a good result for me.

Grats podium & finishers. Thanks admins & see you at Surfers :)
