This is where I throw the towel in on 3 championships in a row. Moving house on Weds/Thurs next week, internet gets cut off here on Tuesday. Probably won't be online for 2 weeks at least after that. Sad

That worked just fine for me Smile i joined last 3 min of qual and had time to make my fast lap. it turn up nice. 10p on start of race 1. had a few accidents, and a peddal issue in race 2 but in the race 3 i finnaly get my first points in this championship. Job kill's me so i dont have time for practice but i hope i can be competitive in races with you champions.

Thans for the nice spending time and see you next time.

Chris, you raced hard, fair and fast.. missing the race 3 win on the last corner must have been gutting...but just like this years real BTCC meeting Smile


I always enjoy this track, race one was real tough.. positions 4 to 10 seemed to change each lap. Race 2 was great..car was very strong at start to go from 8th to first, light car really helped. Tyres were overheating at the end and hard fight to fend Kevin off on last lap, managed to force him into an error when he went for the pass at Coppice to enable a cut back. First win that's not come in race 3 so very happy about that.

Race 3 was a disappointing lap 1 DNF, got spun into the a wall and lost a wheel.

Yea was a fun eve mostly.

Had 3 good starts, Race 1 qual in 16th but only 1sec off, worked my up to 7th (the only driver to do 15 laps with no incidents according to liveracers!!!! if its accurate) with the help of a few over enthusiastic drivers.

Race 2, went round the outside at turn 1, just avoiding a flying citroen, then got bumped on way to old hairpin which pushed me off, got back to 10th.

Race 3, had some good battles worked way thru to 8th but only 11secs behind the winner so am very happy with that.

Overall as say fun eve, good battle with Simon for cpl laps & Tony in the last race.

Just hoping can keep that sort of pace in future events, so much more fun when u can see/chase the cars infront & even catch them now & again.
