Qualy: P3
Good laps in 1.46.9 (3 laps) with a perfect lap P2 was possible, Pole Position out of reach. With Marek on Pole position it wasn't the best starting position but happy with my pace.

Race: P3 (Champion)
Good start overtaking Marek, I took risks to complete the overtake move and I went wide hitting the barrier with right side damaging the car slightly but keeping P2. I had a race watching Marek and Juan Manuel race positions to be aware how many risks I had to take. Mikko overtook me and went away. So I was P3 with my main rivals P4 and P5. Marek trying to overtook me on lap 7 hit me and I hit the barrier with left side but I was lucky to avoid the tyre barrier in front and Feri overtook both. With Feri in P3 I needed a P6 so I was aware that my pace with car damaged was good enough to stay P4 or P5. Then Mikko's DNF changed my mind and I decided defend the P3 position against Marek, to prevent if Mariusz had issues in the lead. (Because if Marek pass Feri and me and then Mariusz retires he would have won trophy) So I defended hard my P3 position and finally on lap 19 I was lucky again when a lapped car lost control and hit Marek and not me. So I could finish P3 and win the trophy.

Q: P9
P8 was possible, but it was quite OK.

R: P5
My start was good, and something happened in the front so I found myself in P6. Antonio arrived quite soon and he put a big pressure on me. (At least I felt like that :D ) I made a mistake in lap 11 so he overtook me. A few laps later Mikko was out so I was in 6th position again. Later Antonio had a puncture so I gained P5. Unfortunately I had a little contact with a lapped car, maybe that was partly my mistake, sorry for that.
After that my goal was to deliver this Japanese stuff home safe. :)
This is my best result since Im racing here.

Congrats Aitor for win the trophy! B)

Congrats Aitor.

Q:11
I expected that because I really struggle with these "understeering" cars in particular with low fuel. Same Position as in Mainfield at least the gap to the pole was smaller.

R:9
Start was ok but I could not use my momentum because Murat and a car in front blocked the road. Maybe I took too much risk to pass Antonio my breakpoint was a bit too late and I touched him slightly. A few laps later I passed Nuno and Jorge which looked promising. But not for long, with that cones removed at the chicane I misjudge where I could drive and jumped over a bump. As a consequence I lost my car and Nuno, Murat and I think Roman crashed because of that. Sorry guys.
I could recover from that but a few further mistakes and resulting spins meant P9. It´s ok because my target was to finish the race without a major crash, which I did but I´m not happy about the course of the race.

Answering Ramon:

Yes, you are right the rules shouldn't be changed during the season. If I would know this mod like GP1979 the rules wouldn't be changed. With fixed setups, Toni mentioned he cannot set steering lock properly. As I unblocked some settings it was clear running series with fixed setups is unnecessary. I think with fixed setups the fuel consumption factor would be even worse. Then, at Anderstorp, Porsche 935 had to slow down opposite to the other cars which could push. At Rouen, Porsche had to make refuelling comparing to the other cars so the word "racing" wouldn't suit to Porsche drivers - it would suit rather "travel".

As I said before, trophy is for test, to know the mod better. Now I have all info I need about DRM.

Q: 1
R: 4

Qual:
Surprise! Taking PP with my best lap ever (but not ideal) was promising result.

Race:
Start was normal but it could be better of course. Unfortunately Aitor overtook me due to my lazy 2nd gear and my problems started from that point. On lap 1 slowest corner strange thing came which ruined my further race. Car overreved itself (I can't properly name it because I don't know exactly what happened) and my engine almost blew falling down to 6%. So my first laps were very careful when I had to learn how to manage the engine. After that I tried to attack and overtake Aitor but damn lazy 2nd gear wasn't comparable in acceleration with Capri. I did the first attempt on the last corner of 7th lap and it ended with total failure. Aitor went inside, I went behind him. Then I decided to go outside but Aitor did it in the same moment. I tried to go back inside but I slightly touched him with front spoiler. We both ended at the fence - sorry for that. JM Feri overtook us but we were still healthy. I shortened the distance to Aitor again and we both had great fights. I overtook him twice but I was slower on exit so our positions didn't change. I had problems with backmarkers in the end of the race but it didn't matter anymore.

Grats for Aitor and JM Feri who showed big balls in this series. Pity the grid wasn't regular.

Not much to tell. Haven't been driving lately at all. Downloaded the track in last minute before quali.
Didn't expect much and that was the result. Pace was ok ish but not anywhere safe.
Grats to winners!
