Happy with this news as I couldn't race this evening as my Mum said I couldn't play with my friends. 50 years old and I'm still being told what to do by my Mum ;)

16 laps take aproximately 1 hour. Weren't the races scheduled for 45 minutes? This would be aproximately 12 laps.

I think you are wrong. I count lap number each time as follows:

45 minutes x 60 seconds / average laptime in seconds

45 x 60 / 165 (165 is 2:45 average laptime) = 16,36

I have cut lap number to 15 intentionally, because with 16 laps it would be over 45 minutes indeed.

Q: 3th
R: 1st

Qual:
Good performance and PB after horrible problems with old PC - graphic card issue and connection problems too. No special traffic, 3th position.

Race:
Very good start. I almost overtook Srecko but I stuck behind Milos before the first hairpin turn and Srecko finally kept his 2nd place. On the Eau Rouge/fast straight area I was overtook by Nikola but he had connection issues and lagged hardly so he disappeared/appeared just ahead of me on the long straigh on 3rd position what confsed me a little. Then I kept the close distance after Top3. On lap 5 Nikola spun (it was not his day probably) and I passed him taking 3rd place. Srecko and Milos raced together not far from me until the bad accident happened to the leader (Srecko) on lap 7. Srecko touched the wall on the exit of Eau Rouge and spun badly. Then Milos came in wrong momentum what caused he hit the wall very strong. I came to the long straight carefully because yellow flag appeared. Luckily with little braking I passed Srecko and Milos and became the leader. Milos was out, Srecko returned to the track and I thought he will recover 1st finally being up to 1 s. faster then me but he cooked his engine shortly after the accident. I had 3 s. advantage over 2nd JM Feri and 8 laps to go. My only task was to keep the pace without stupid mistakes. I controlled that advantage and it looked well because lap by lap the gap between me and JM grew. However, I had some bad moments at Pouhon turns where my 911 was losing the grip in time according to tire wear. Anyway, I kept 1st place until the chequered flad came with approx. 7 s. margin over 2nd JM Feri.

Win by luck but win anyway so I'm very happy with that, especially because almost no practice and huge struggle with technical issues in the race day. I made short video from my race perspective with the music of me and my former band. I hope you will like it.

Now the grand finale at Monza. We just have to set the event date. Here's the video:
