I almost forgot the about the race until about 40 mins before start time, plus I hadn't practiced at all, and I'd never driven Watkins Glen ever, so I wasn't expecting much. Managed to snag P4 in quali, probably higher than my true pace reflected. Went for a S/M/S strategy as I felt I didn't have enough practice to be able to look after the tyres on a 1 stop. It was going well up until my final stint on the softs. Copped a pit lane cutting penalty even though I was very careful, and then struggled to get pace out of the softs - I think I was quicker on the mediums... (I often struggle with maximizing pace on a faster tyre after getting rid of a slower set) Had some good battles though, definitely my race with the most action this season. I was so close to catching Arnold at the finish line. I saw him struggling, but couldn't catch him in the end. I guess he got me back for last round. That pit lane penalty might've been the difference. Here's some pics, sorry if the last one is massive.
