Well,I wrecked my Falcon :)
First 5 laps I was in pace with Mikko and Marek,but after that, I overheated rear tires and must slow down.
everything was fine until I overbrake myself and hit the barrier.
Engine is gone :)
See You next time,cheers!

A very lucky race!
I get more than I deserved...
After the start the duel with Igor begins immediatly...we raced on the same laptimes and the gap between us was costant, until he did it an error and I gained his position.
Then it was my turn to turn the car on the grass and he retake the position.
I tried to cancel the gap between us and touched the wall at the exit of the fast chicane and I was veryveryvery lucky: the Jag spinned but the wheels remained where they have to be. At that point my first aim was to avoid another "flash of genius" of my brain and wait the chequered flag.

It's a pleasure race with you guys....

Keep calm and wait the chequered flag...

Q: P1
R: P2

Qual:
Very good laps, pole position by surprise. It could be even 0.3 s. better best lap but I did mistake in S3 in last counted lap. Anuway, good performance.

Race:
Obviously Mikko started better with more agile Abarth but I kept his pace trying to catch him on straights. We built up the safe gap over Falcons. When backmarkers came I did a small mistake while overtaking Igor Cvitanovic, coming with powerslide into his rear right fender. My car was slightly damaged and I lost approx. 2-3 s. to Mikko. In the last laps Mikko did mistake too and I jumped on P1. I tried to escape from Mikko but on the last corner of penultimative lap my car took the spin. We had both contact and I let Mikko pass because it was my fault. Mikko deserved to win anyway so I'm happy with my consistent pace and the final result. Promising before Donington with more straights preferring Cortinas.

P.S.: Sorry Igor for this little touch. I hope you were ok after that.

Hello

Was nice to race again!
I trusted fiat ability to accelerate quikly from line. Started with decent pace but after 15 laps my rear tyres started slide.
Around same time Marek had some issues and our gap got bigger. I started to feel too good and then made stupid mistake :pinch:
I believed i could pass Marek in few laps before finish, got pretty close and then Marek spinned. After that it was just finishing the race.
Here is my recorded stream if someone wants to watch www.twitch.tv/videos/132981782
