Round 3: Spain - Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (14Apr18 @ 7pm BST)

Division 1:
Session host is Michemery
Qualifying starts at 7:00pm (UK time) followed by the race
Division 2:
Session host is Macca
Qualifying starts at 7:00pm (UK time) followed by the race

Race Preview:

Two races down and both divisions are yet to settle down. A chaotic first two rounds in D1 has seen no driver take an early hold on the championship. Reigning champion Deki, his teammate Jume and race winners Falcon and Neyo have all only scored points once, and just five drivers picked points in both Australia and Bahrain (Michael, Carre, Killer, Smithy, Rikk). Own and Michael have emerged as early contenders with a strong podium for the Dutchman in Bahrain and two solid second-places for Michael leaving him top of the championship. Spain, the first of the European races, a race that never fails to dissapoint, 3 different winners in the last 3 PRL Spanish GPs. Neither of last season's top two (Deki and Carre) who were dominant in its second half (each of the last ten race victories went to one of them), have scored a top two finish so far this time round. Surely that has to change this weekend.

Tip for pole: Carre, Tip for the win: Carre

In D2, two challengers to the throne left by Jari have emerged- V5HRL (fourth in S15) and PRL rookie Waluigi- split by just 3 points. Between them, they've won both of this season's opening rounds with V5HRL having two poles under his belt already. With a gap of 17 points back to a congested chasing pack, S16 is already threatening to turn into a two-horse race. Spain is a track for strong all-rounders, with its long sweeping turns and technical final sector, so its hard to look past D2's emergent title contenders for victor again.

Tip for Pole: V5HRL, Tip for the win: Waluigi



Pre-Race Questions:

1. Own turned in a great performance in Bahrain to take his first PRL podium. Who are you expecting to pull off a shock on Saturday? For better or for worse

2. Two races in, how would you rate your start to this season so far?

3. What's your predicted Top 10 for Saturday?

1. I'm going to stick and my neck out here and predict a big performance from Haribo where he finishes the race

2. Bloody marvellous. Two sixth places, fifth in the championship and ahead of Deki, Jume, Mich, Smithy and Rikkurich? I would take that any day of the week.

1. Provided its a dry race, i could see Deki winning, and based off his season so far, that would be a surprise.

2. Choked, but well recovered. Australia my race incident was out of my hands, but i managed to pull of a very impressive stint on Softs (with a bit of luck too) and get 1 points. Bahrain, i bottled the start, fell 2 places, then spun where i had never really spun before, completely my fault. Lost me 10secs directly, and indirectly lost a lot of time behind Rikk and Jari, but again i recovered brilliantly in my opinion to get 7th. If i can avoid slip ups my track record suggests ill get a very nice finish.

Really hard to chose, so many drivers are capable of getting Top 10.

1. I suppose Stijn should be more competitive, I think he’s been unlucky with tigaby wiping him out on lap 1 of both races so far. In terms of bad surprises, I imagine V5 won’t repeat his Spain race last year where he ended up outside of the points, since he’s improved a lot since then.

2. It’s been good in terms of points as I’m 3rd, but I can still do better. Qualifying has been a weakness, as being 8th and 10th has left me too far away from the front runners to challenge for the podium. But at least I’ve kept out of trouble and my race pace has been good.

1. I have got no idea, but I think anyone can surprise seen how close everyone has been.

2. It has been quite bad, could have finished higher in Australia and due to psn not really working last saturday I had to use the stock setup at Bahrain and I can tell you that setup doesnt work.

i think i might bring some shock as somehow i allways end up being faster in spain then most other tracks, dont exspect a podium but maybe a solid point score

2. Two races in, how would you rate your start to this season so far?
my first race was instantly over when i didnt ghost through ownhvb's car and ended up spinning and losing my wing. and without safety car there is just no recovery
my second race was alot better though still room for improvements as i shoulda ended 9th and maybe even 8th but a foolish last corner attempt left me at p10 in the end

1. No one was expecting ownhvb to pull out a result like that. Pretty sure he wasn't too. It's hard to say if he's able to repeat that simply because the grid is really strong. He's my driver of the day

2. I would give my season a 5/10 so far. Bottled the quali in Australia & the way my race went was a bit out of my control really. Bahrain was much better. Quali was alright & the race almost perfect. To win a race on a track were the field is so close together feels great.

1. I can't see anyone else providing as big of a surprise as own did, probably very close to a perfect race for him, but you never know. I think agony's pace has gone up consistently so maybe he could get a top 6 finish with some dnfs in front.

2. Very bad. I knew that I wouldn't have a chance in Australia but I was confident I could get points in Bahrain because I knew I had good race pace, but made a stupid mistake.

1. I'm gonna predict a shock result where 2 reserves in Louis and CosmicGuille will finish on podium if they race.

2. Quiet two races so far having my front wing broken after 1st turn in both races but happy I've still managed to bring home some points. Learning to drive with no tc so I'm happy I finished the races.

1. Own turned in a great performance in Bahrain to take his first PRL podium. Who are you expecting to pull off a shock on Saturday? For better or for worse

Got a feeling some of last season's performers will surprise us this weekend. I think we may see a surprise win from one of Dave, Robert, Oldschool, Mike or Tigaby.

2. Two races in, how would you rate your start to this season so far?

Australia went as well as it could have gone realistically however my performance in Bahrain was pretty sh*t to put it lightly. I spun out twice and both times were completely self-inflicted. It looks like I'll have to really step it up for Spain.

3. What's your predicted Top 10 for Saturday?

Top 10 is very hard to predict since the tail end of the top 10 tend to be those who don't get into an accident so here's my top 5:

1. Kalle
2. V5
3. Waluigi
4. Army
5. Dave

1.I don't really know i think Carre wants to show everyone what he is capable of
2. Probably the worst possible start for me but i hope that i can turn things around for Spain

1. Well I think I'm going to do well round here which judging by people's opinions is a surprise. Short memories!

2. I'm gutted I wasn't there as most of the strategies were terrible. I think I would have got 4th as a minimum. I am largely disappointed as looking at the table there's a few people who have no right to be above me but that will change.

3.
Couldn't care less to be honest. Me 3rd. As a minimum

1. army had a pretty bad weekend in Bahrain. He will be one of the top guys in Spain.

2. Awesome !! 4th in Australia (even if I was in a no man's land) and the win in Bahrain. I wanted to be in the top 10 so this was a great              season start.

3. 1) V5
    2) Army
    3) Kallek
    4) Tigaby
    5) Oldskool
    6) Macca
    7) NeWaluigi (Bahrain is my favorite track so I don't think I will win another one and I don't really like Spain)
    8) Dave
    9) Yougi
    10) Stevo
    It's really difficult to guess because it's really close in the midpack

1. The shocking performance will be SimsiDanger completing his first lap of the season.

2. Some little details + personal mistakes have avoided an awesome start of the season. I am a bit dissapointed so far, especially in Bahrain where I could have get an easy podium.
