    Really some great efforts here guys, even though PD is testing our patients and loyalty to the GRAN TURISMO series.

    My pace wasn't good here so opted for the Hard compound. Qualied just behind Bobo again starting 8th.
    Had a run on Bobo into T1 and took position under brakes but he snuck back up the inside. That was about as interesting as it got for another 16 laps. I was managing my tyres well so clawed my way back to Beau and Fastboy and got past them both just before pit stops. Felt great until I entered the pits end lap 17, the car slammed back behind Bobo and crept agonizingly slow passed anyone who was pitting at the time. I think I lost 15 seconds in the pits in the end. This was a real shame as I was having a great ding-dong with Beau :(

    Out of the pits and on a charge now against Pringles who passed me while I was serving my time, lap after lap, reeling him in. After catching him, a battle of nerves ensued and we traded best sector times. I couldn't quite make the move down the main straight stick, so I decided to wait for his tyres to go off. And around lap 29, I saw the signs. His tyres said 'no more left turning please' on lap 29 so leading representative of TLR came through into 6th.

    Enjoying this series although I'm down on pace. Happy with 2nd in Div1b and fastest lap by a bees dick.
    See you guys at Spa, away through the week so with limited practice.
    The TLR engineers really need to pick up their game and the pit crew has to stop eating icecreams when I come in to get my tyres changed.:p

    @Fastboysmith you have some weird glitch with your tyres. your times indicate you where on mediums for both stints.
    Maybe that is your issue?

    Good luck for tonight guys. Apologies for not making it to a team session yet. My work schedule has sucked so far. I'm still going to have to miss at least one more race with night shifts as well.
    @pykeybraa145 sounds like you are setting some good times, hang in there your luck will change soon.
    Hopefully I can steal a few points for us tonight.

    No, it will just introduce more understeer. You should restore rigidity every 1000 km or so, though.

    Threw away 2nd place tonight. Too many mistakes, finished 4th. Still a decent result, but a podium was within reach.

    Despite what Pykey said earlier, we are now actually 33 points behind. :( But we're still in second, and there's still a long way to go...

    Looks like we got a good showing in Div 3, with Pykey finishing 3rd, 4th and me 1st, 6th. I'm still getting my head around the combined points system for sprints, though.

    Good stuff fellas. I came 2nd in the first race, just couldn't get past anywhere. The second race was a shocker, tried to be cautious at T1, shouldn't have bothered, copped a penalty trying to avoid contact from cars in front and only got worse from there. Had plenty of pac, just couldn't get by anyone clean enough. I brought it home in 7th or 8th.

    Well done boys!
    Pulled out a 1.10.3xx in qualifying... still not sure how i managed it, but I was very pleased to start on the second row in 4th!
    I managed 4th/7th against the super aliens which is my best result of the season. :D

    Q3, had an off in lap 1, 2nd last, caught up, passed a few, ran wide, all in all 7th pending a rerun. Definitely better for the run tho.
