Not bad, not bad...

New pb in practice (only by 0.08, but a pb is a pb). Fourth in quali. Second place and old man's cup win in race one, 5th and old boys cup win in the second. And car brought home in one piece. That's got to be a good weekend by anyone's standard Very Happy

But I can't help feeling what could have been...the championship leader (proper talented kid with proper team behind him) was on his spare engine and a couple of bhp down on power. I was right with him through the first race, and even closing the gap on the straights, so really felt like I could have a proper pop at him in the second. However, it wasn't to be - I got an 8/10 start and held him at a few car lengths for a couple of laps, but then the talent started to show - he just makes fewer mistakes. The first little error cost me a few more car lengths, then the second a few more. Without the tow up the straight, I lost another bit, and at this point the gap became insurmountable. Fine, settle for another second place. But no. Some little twat (who'd also taken someone out in the first race) smashed into me from behind as I was turning into a Duffus (his fibreglass nose against my metal gearbox, so no damage for me). Somehow managed to hang onto it, but two laps later he's at it again. Comes sailing down the inside on the grass at the end of the main straight and forces me to swerve mid-way through the Duffus turn-in and take to the escape road. Lost 4 places. Gained one back to re-secure the old man's cup, but feeling a bit gutted to have been robbed.

Interested to hear opinions on this. In relation to the aforementioned incident in race 1 (which was deemed 100% his fault by the Clerk of the Course).
To me, it reads as a open threat to crash into anyone who tries to overtake...

I think give it a rest.

You’re already calling fellow racers twats, do you really need to continue stirring? Internet shit talking always works out really well for championships in the long run Rolling Eyes

agree Malc. Neil you need to walk away from this one, let seb be the keyboard warrior, you know that from that post he would rather have a dnf and someone else in the gravel than give a place. He needs to realise that it is club racing and to grow up a bit, it isnt top level racing but a bunch of blokes out for a race.

friendship and respect cost nothing and we are not here for a long time
