What an amazing race that was, Keeden and I had an absolute blast. Took a gamble and chucked the slower driver in first (which was me, duh), and it was white knuckle stuff, epically close racing while Tyson bolted off. Mint was cartoonishly slow down the straights and miles off his pre race pace so he was a sitting duck unfortunately. The GT wasn’t particularly zippy either and it made passing very difficult indeed during the great battle with the TCX cars. We had a quick car in clear air though, so we went long to try and give us some breathing space before handing over to Keeden. Keeden soon passed XL and Hat in a tricky stint but it brought us right into play. It was still anyone’s race with Motors going ultra long, Vardz going very fast and Tyson and Austin on their different strategy. With one hour done it was my turn again. This has to be one of the best stints I’ve ever driven, the car felt amazing and I was able to rack up 11’s on every lap, and caught Austin. I lost about 7 seconds battling him which proved to be crucial. I was now catchng Tyson who seemed like he wasn’t lapping anywhere near the sort of pace he had in the first stint. With about 28 minutes left my race was done and Keeden had to bring it home. To our surprise we overcut Tyson and Austin fairly comfortably. Keeden was wary of the threat from behind but on cue harnessed the alien power only he has and began racking up some insane lap times to pull away. Motors was in the lead on his 2 stop strategy with Vardz catching him at a rate of knots. Keeden gave it his all but couldn’t carch Vardz before he got past Motors. The win was now out of reach and time was running out fast. Motors looked like he was struggling big time on old front tyres and on the last lap, Keeden sent it around the outside of Murray’s Corner and pulled the move off for a stunning 2nd place finish. Easily one of the most exciting races we’ve been a part of. Huge congrats to Vardz for getting the win that he’s threatened to do for a long time. Congrats to Motors as well for winning the TCX class.
