    Wow, first Div 2 win for me (don't count the reverse grid sprint race a few seasons ago), very happy with my race.

    Most of my limited practice was in the dry concentrating on a good quali lap, managed 4th, lap was good but not great. Thought it was OK being only 15 hundredths off pole, until Stozza came in and smashed us all in the dying seconds putting me about 8 tenths off! Was behind Stozza, Stu & Spidey.

    Got a good start, Spidey bogged down, had him covered by Turn 1. The 2 in front were 2 abreast down the hill and I kept having to feather to avoid ramming into the rear of one of them. T6 and Stu got a tap from a car that had stuck its nose up alongside me sending him into a spin and then chaos ensued behind. Managed to escape so was now in 2nd behind Stoz.

    Followed him around for several laps, the gap moving in and out. After a bit, I started to apply a little more pressure and got close, but it's hard to pass on this track. Finally a crack, as he get's a little wobble coming off the last chicane and I got through clean and went down the outside before he could close the door, went as deep as I dared (that's what she said) and got past for the lead.

    I knew Stoz had pace and so it was no time to relax. Pushing hard we were now into the phase where the track started to cool and grip came down and I managed to pull a few seconds on Stoz as he had a couple of moments here and there. On lap 12 I started to get some droplets on the screen and spent the rest of lap debating with myself whether to pit now or the next lap. I took the gamble and pitted at the end of lap 12, the only one to do so. I second guessed my decision for the first half of the out-lap, but felt justified when the track conditions changed to wet probably right about the time the leaders were hitting the final 2 hairpins. Passing all in the pits I had gained about 2 seconds.

    From there, it was about getting a decent gap, which currently stood at about 4 seconds. I was pushing as hard as I could in the wet, before the puddles started to become a problem. I managed to get the gap out to about 9 seconds, especially when Stu caught Stoz and they started to have a battle. With about 7 laps to go I switched to just bring it home mode, this was nowhere near in the bag yet. Stu started to reel me in but I felt ok as the remaining laps were not enough.

    Crossing the line was a great relief, and my first mistake free race for a while as well which I think definately helped. Well done to Stu & Stoz for rounding out the podium. I always like the weather races.

    Ahhhh, another night of what could have been !
    Had some great racing though, so enjoyed it regardless of the result..
    Did a 35:011 on my first flyer which had me on provisional pole, and next lap was .6 up only to stuff the 2nd to last hairpin, and staying in the low 35s..... then stozz pipped me on his last flyer by .031 !! Well done mate.....

    Start was pretty good, and went side by side with Stozz through 1,2,3, before i got out of it at the bottom of the hill to let him through and slot in behind for the run up the hill. Unfortunately copped a little bump on the entry to 7 and it got me sideways on the grass. Managed to save it and slot in again in 4th, before @natmanscoop lost it on about lap 6 coming onto the front straight.... up to 3rd with @garyw61 and @Spidey_11 close behind..... on about lap 12 i planned on pitting, but bloody stozz was still in front of me, and had half a lose coming out of the back hairpin.... i got a run on him, but was on the wrong side of him to enter the pits so had to go around again..... we went in nose to tail to change to wets on lap 13, and turbo drove past while we were in...... The next 3 laps we swapped position a few times, before i got past and cleared him, with turbo about 9 seconds up the road..... I was closing slowly but certainly not enough to put any pressure on, and managed to come home in second, about 5 secs behind turbo and the same ahead of Stozza....

    Some really good racing, the first 7 or 8 laps was a line of about 6 cars up the front.... good fun....Shame for @v8power383 that he couldnt get in, @Bounty05 i should have mentioned he gets last place points.
    Off to Sugo for round 4..... hopefully we have more than 10 cars on the grid.
