    That race was epic! Huge thanks to @v8power383 for getting these going again, they are a blast with multiple drivers.
    Also a big commendation to @jasondull1986 for stepping up at tue last minute to fill in the codriver seat. Jumping over from another sim with very little practice, and none on my set up. Hold your head up high mate.
    Actually very surprised to come away with the win. At the last 'safety car' we made a tyre pressure change which made a difference to our fuel consumption, but we didnt know that. So the plan was to throw jason back in the seat and run until we could pit and fill the car to get home. On the old numbers this was 33 laps to go. About half way through the stint we had a loom at the number and could see we wouldnt make it, so I started fuel saving big. Was only with three laps to go that I could get back to full throttle attack, but we had the pace anyway over the other cars even fuel saving. For it to come down to the last few laps was amazing.

    Big congrats to all who took part,
    On to LeMans!!!

    Epic race guys and great to be a part off. I really struggled with getting any pace out of that beast but full credit to @t_b_williams He drove an unreal final stint will doing some heavy fuel saving and I can't believe he pull it off. Great to meet another Rooz member and I'll be back for le man.

    Epic indeed! It was hilarious to see my two rookie co-drivers getting edgy several hours before they were scheduled to drive! Thankfully both of them knew the Spa track so it was just a case of getting to terms with the mighty Cadillac which is now definitively in my mind the sleeper GT3 vehicle of choice!
    Big thanks to V8 & Spidey who really made this thing happen in a big way.
    I would like to apologise for some slightly out of control racing with some of you guys, there were a few times I was cringing for not quite enough racing room being given, Blue was one, Tuddy another, so thanks for putting up with a couple of rookies who were fighting like hell to make a race of it. They had no malice intended, they just didn't quite have the car control to go wheel to wheel. Hopefully they'll continue on with racing now & get there.
    Congrats to TB & JasonD, fabbo win in the first race of the year!

    I for one would like to apologize for my dodgy net . Thanks for putting up with it guy's, back markers did a good job of letting us through, we had a good strategy by running full fuel , we could get 31 laps with a lap left in the tank but didn't factor in tyre pressures at the end . The M6 wasn't the fastest car but was very consistent , could sit on low to mid 22's for most of the stint then drop to 23's with 10 lasps of fuel left .
    Bloody good work TB on the chase down , I just couldn't push any harder due to no grip .

    Thanks everyone it was a great race I just wish I had done testing in the lower temps as I was in a good spot after the last restart after I pushed my lead out to 5 seconds only to watch it slowly get taken away as the track temp dropped but all in all a great race, also a massive thanks to
    @Spidey_11 for broadcasting it was great to watch between stints, and also a massive thanks to familia for co driving he did a great job in his stint but now on to le-mans

    The 6th of July looks to be ideal at this point as I can't do the 22nd or 29th of June but I'll wait a week or two to give everyone a chance to let us know if that works for everyone or not
