Is there an issue with the rain model on this track? Wipers don't wipe it off, takes 3-4 wipes to remove it.

Qualified P6 for both races which I was happy with, then L1 of R1 went to shit entirely, with me getting scared by the T1 mayhem ahead and spinning myself into P16 once everyone was gone, then losing it on the way to the hairpin. A recovery drive from there, I ended up in P11 which I had no right too given I had lost my splitter and the top speed coming from that.

R2 was great fun, tried to hang with @Boovolari for a while before losing connection and then spinning on the way to the chicane for no good reason, letting @Shinobi by - made for a tremendous fight against him though, bringing home P5.

R3 had another fun gap-battle with @sin_racing behind me, both of us picking up places but never actually getting close enough to each other - instead, it was Martin coming into sight again, and another P5 in the end!

I hated driving around this track on my own but loved racing it.

Quali: Not great. P14 and P14 I believe.

Race 1: Not great. Crashed a few times, including while being flashed at by @Arwyn (heh). Repaired late on. P15.

Race 2: Bit better, was in with a shout of points until I crashed into @cosmo because I'm an idiot. Fluked a reverse grid front row. P11.

Race 3: Got jumped by @Lemm314 at the start and later by @Mike Bell but was able to hold @ajokay and @lazaros18 behind. I inherited a podium spot when @Blex had an issue, only for me to have exactly the same issue myself into the same turn. I was still kind of in with a shout of a podium, only to be lobbed over a barrier by @Shinobi towards the end. Salvaged some points by passing a (I assume hobbled?) @Boovolari at the end. P8.

two 4ths and a 6th. Very very happy with my performance today. Barely a wheel out of place all evening and had some amazing battles with @lazaros18 (2-wide through the chicane twice in race 3) and @Shinobi and @Arwyn and @craighypheno and @shaxberd and briefly @Mike Bell and @MrRandom287 on their way past me. Thanks all

Also tried to keep on @Boovolari's tail but he had a few tenths in his tank over me. Congrats on the double podium dude!

POWAtime!


Slightly off-topic, made this 4 years ago on a whim wondering what a 'proper' circuit round dunsfold would look like and it's similar to what we raced today. Glad to see it gives good racing!
So much fun!

Qualy: P5 for both races, put out my best lap on this circuit while following mike around for some inspiration.

R1: Messy T1, battled @ajokay for a fair bit of the race, very close racing and I managed to get ahead but all the fighting made my tires go a bit, my setup getting very understeery beacuse of it, which pushed me into mistakes. Matt showing up and overtaking me into the chicane didn't help things as it put me in the back foot and right back into Alex's clutches. Couldn't really find a way to respond after that, I did my best but I noticed that my understeer was getting worse so I counted my blessings and settled into the position. P5

R2: Alex overtook me early in the race (again!) but this time around I got him one better and retook my position and built a bit of gap. Not having to fight as much helped me stay on pace for most of it. With two laps to go I was feeling confident in bringing home another P5, @shaxberd ahead with a comfortable gap to me, but unfortunately he had a bit of a hiccup with his connection it seems, making him go off at the chicane, giving me the opportunity to go past him. I feel there was a cheeky rejoin attempt being made but I manage to squeeze by, finding myself in a very intense fight to the lights for the last couple laps. Super fun, and stressful! P4

R3: I had a lot of fun with this one but it has a bittersweet undertone as I ruined @craighypheno race. I was far behind but I felt that if I nailed the execution I could try and follow bjorn's narrower line and get past craig quickly and get Matt off my ass, but I couldn't control the car and ended up sending him over.

That aside I felt it was a fun race. I was pretty happy with my start, I got around T1 rather well making 2 positions on one go, coming out there 3 wide with Bjorn and @Arwyn. I had Mike breathing down my neck for a few laps, and although he was not trying apparently, I was positioning my car to not really give him any easy chances. A few laps later I made a move to try and get past Alex (again!! noticing a theme here) but I overshot the brakes which I think did a number on my confidence as I never quite felt comfortable on them after that, which was where I felt I was making the difference today. Got tangoing with @lazaros18 for a few laps, where we overtook eachother a couple times and it felt mental and really fun. Then I fell off, got into another fight with bjorn and his little train. He got me one better, Matt following me for a lap after that before the incident with Craig, cruising it home in P10.

To be honest, I'm just happy to be racing at this level. I'm fighting where I wanna be fighting, getting super close and in there, avoiding contact rather well but still putting the elbows out when needed. I'm literally getting my best laps every weekend in qualy, which is amazing. It's just, a very good feeling. It felt like a very mature race for me, things just worked and I felt in control of the car, which perhaps made me a bit overconfident trying to make certain move sticks like the one with Craig, but I had been driving my wheels off (maybe literally; I'm looking at you front left) up to that point in that race. Mistakes happen, unfortunate it costed someone other than just myself.

But yeah, it's one thing to have one good result, but being able to perform to this level week in and out in these cars just feels very good and I'm quite proud of myself. Need to carry these good vibes into other cars now. Cheers and good racing everyone!

Quali: Pretty wank really, P15 / P16 but also well over a second off my best practice times.

R1: I managed to take advantage of the T1 carnage and push myself through to 8th by the end of the first lap. I held onto this for a few laps but was eventually caught by Matt and Lazzy making their ways back through the feild and ended up with a steady P10. Happy with that, it meant b2b points results which I think is a first for me.

R2: Utter shit, I had made a change to my brake bias for R1 which I didn't save. Coming into this race the car felt off and I totalled it under braking early on then just kinda gave up. Retired.

R3: Slight improvement on R2, I managed to finish this one :mrgreen: . There was less carnage to take advantage of but still a small amount, found myself in P10 for a good while, before being picked off by Matt again, Then with a couple of laps to go I spun and lost a couple more places. P14

A bit disappointed really, I was running solid 59s on a green circuit with a low 58 as my fastest lap and I was stuck in 2:00:00s for the races and qualified with a similar time.

Yep. I clumsily made contact with a wall on the last lap and in a cheap tribute to Hamilton's GP finish earlier in the day, raced the last half a lap with a front puncture. You couldn't have just been a couple of seconds further back, could you? :)

Great fun on Sunday night. I think the last time I took two podiums in one night was over six years ago! Really enjoyed having @ajokay up at the front, too. One of us must have paid the electric bill, because the POWA was finally back on 8-)

I wanted squishes and everyone complied, just not in the intended manner.

Still, got some fun races out of it, especially with @PaulDillon, so not all bad!
