1:27.1 for the first run, but there is stilla ton of time left. The uphill left before the last two corners is killing me.

Really enjoyed that last night guys. Even with the wheel problems that hit me after my first quali run. Very strange that.. I came into the pits, went back out but immediately had the ol' cobblestones issue where it feels like you are running on cobblestones whenever you turn the wheel. Pretty much impossible to get a decent lap time that way so I went back to the pits reset my wheel and went out again.. no cobblestones this time.. any ffb though either. Reset it two more times but still no joy. Wheel felt really odd going into that left hander after the chicane and fast right and I had to break really early to get round there. 

Anyway, I decided to give it a go for the race and sheet advising the start line problems hag a really good battle with Rob for the first 11 laps. Kept on his tail for the first 5 or 6 laps, closing on him in  the first sector but losing time at the Chute. Managed to get past when he when in deep at turn 9  and held the position for the next 4 or 5 laps before I suddenly lost the wheel again, hag to go almost full lock to try to make the slightest turn and clattered into the wall at the exit of turn 3 causing suspension and wheel damage. Couldn't steer the car at all so had to use the barriers to guide me sind the track to the pits... lap time of around 3 minutes lol.

Got under way again after a very long stop but already over a lap down on everyone but on the exit of the pits I surprisingly found my ffb was working once again! Had a strong spell of racing them and although a lap down enjoyed some fun dicing with Rebel before getting past and starting to pull away to focus on trying to get the lap back on Rich. Think he had an issue and I quickly made the lap up and moved up a place and then was on my way to try to see how close I could get to Rebel. Problem being my early stop meant I wad going to have to make a splash and dash at the end. I calculated what I would need based on the fuel usage gauges and the time left then pitted putting in fuel for the final laps. Put in shine decent times and hag the gap down to Rebel to under 40 seconds but then as the last lap approached realised I was tight on fuel. I could have coasted for the final lap but decided what the hell lol.. tan or if fuel a few corners from home and coasted to the final corner before coming to a stop doh! 

Anyway, no biggie I had great fun and actually drive shine of my best ever laps in this car during the laps after my first stop when the wheel was working properly again. 

Can't wait for the next one

Odd, I have problems every now and then on my pad.
I'll have the results/standings up at some point at the weekend.
