I had no grip for the first few laps but after that the car felt pretty good and was chasing down Kerlan with Chris. Looking like it was going to be a good race and until I lost it and lightly tapped the tire wall.

8 mins of repairs, ugh, hope the F3 is stronger than the Radical!
Yes and no.  I did some Road Atlanta last week, and in one of them, I spun, and barely touch the wall with the rear wheel.  Had the meat ball flag, went to pit and got the too much damage message

Congrats to Unger on the win. That has pretty much solidified his championship. A very hard fought and well deserved championship!

I can agree with this, the first 4 laps were tough on my car through 4 and 5, by the 5th lap the tires seemed to have hooked up and I was again chasing down Hebert, then a mental mistake on lap 7 in corner 5 did me in, went to shift to 3rd coming out of the corner and  accidentally downshifted into 1st and popped the engine.  Was able to rejoin with 2 minutes and 2 laps to go.

Good race. The temp made for much less grip than we had in practices and it showed. Lots of spins and people going wide. I got punted going into T4 on lap 1 (no worries, Andy. it happens) and fell from 9th to 18th. I was able to get back to 9th before pitting and then ended up in 7th after my stop. Next thing I know, I have Paul under a second behind me and closing the gap. We had a pretty tense battle for a few laps until I made an unforced error and he got by. By the end of the race, the tire wear and track temp was making the car very loose. I need to do a better job adjusting for that.

Well my race was going great until i lost all rear grip and she was more than a handful to drive  :cry:. I then found myself hanging on for dear life, and then a spin landed me a Kerlan on the rear bumper  :mrgreen:. I had nothing for him and had to let him go, and then in the process of trying to stick with him we found traffic.  Tyler and David had a battle going on as we approached, and in fear of losing Kerlan i went for a move that I thought was safe but It didn’t turn out how I thought it would. Im not sure it was anything more than a racing incident, but just Incase im sorry Mr Hebert, didn’t mean to crash your party  :shock:, but Gore did mail me a bottle of Vodka for it  :lol:

My race pace was way off what i was doing in practice. But i managed to keep it incident free, and pulled off a decent pit stop that gained me a little bit of ground. Eventually i caught Tyler, and was enjoying making life difficult for him. I was so caught up in my rear views that when Tyler finally decided to send it I was completely unaware of the blue flag telling me to let Mark by. Honestly didn’t even see him until we were going head first into the wall 😬
