Qualify:
Didn´t manage to get a single good lap, qualified a 7th position  :what: . I didn´t expect anything from the race....

Race 1: In lap 1 both Harald and Frans had their moment and I got a bit more speed out of Attwood. This results to get the middle position of a 3-wide. Some color exchanges later the situation was clear. Thanks to both of them for this moment  :thumbup:
Some turns later I suddenly was at 3rd place because some two the guys in front spun out. A few laps I was able to stay close behind Tim and Bart, but after they stopped fighting they were both faster than I. Made no serious mistakes and got a podium, more than I expected here.

Race 2: Started from 6th position and it went fine until Lap 1 after the hairpin (left turn): I was at the inside and Tim at the outside. Obiously he didn´t saw me and stayed at his line and we collided. Lost several places, very unlucky... A few turns later I got another hit (have to watch the replay for this as well), lost positions again. And my third moment was a failure of myself in the last corner. After that I was at the last position with a gap of several seconds to the guys at Pos 14. In the end I went at the grass when braking for the first corner of the revolver, which almost let Ronald pass again. Thanks for your attention in this situation mate! Position 11 at the end wasn´t the pos I expected for R2, but I have to forget this and concentrate at Goldenport which will be a complete different experience.

Really happy with qualifying: not much slower than my best lap.

Race 1 had a decent start and followed Bart who was pressuring our polesitter Hannes.
Hannes went into deep and Bart and me managed to sneak past. The first 5 laps I was more or less at his bumper but
in the end he just drove away a bit further every lap.

Race 2 is by far the toughest race in this car up till now, but also the best.
I kept my place at the start and after the long straight put my car next to Wolfgang's.
We touched and his car spun out unfortunately (sorry mate).
Bart was out of my rearviewmirror so that was a relief.
After that a long race with some epic battles came up.
Harald and Theo made it really difficult but fair. Awesome racing guys.
Hannes and Bob made an error and in the second to last lap I went by Frans into the lead.
In the meantime Bart came back from last position to take the last podiumstep.
You're so unreal fast mate. Your braking looks surreal, but seems to work!

See you guys at the second round.

Tim

Race 1: I missed the first corner in qualifying and did not have an optimal time. In the race then 2 small mistakes that reached me to 11th or 12th place. Nevertheless, I was able to drive good laps and overtake some drivers. Place 7 is ok for me. :clap:

Race 2: With strong riders in the back I had to make sure that I defend my line as well as possible but always fair. In lap 16, Tim could sit next to me and I had to give him space. But as Bart was still clearly behind me, I steered into the curve, but left Bart still room. Nevertheless, Bart touches me and pushes me away. Close to the limit! Check. :cheers:

I look forward to Goldenport. is not my route but we will see what is possible. :hair:
