Last Season's Results (F1 2014):
1st: danirox88
2nd: kartdude45
3rd: mightymurph51
Pole: Dubzzy__ (1.32.963)
Fastest Lap: Dubzzy__ (1.33.067)

Pre-race Questions:

1. Last time the Pacific PRL paddock visited Silverstone, only danirox and kartdude of the current full time drivers scored podiums, with the former taking victory. Will our only female driver win again, and will either or both be spraying the champagne this time around?
2. With nine rounds complete, we've seen four different race winners. Will we see a fifth different victor this round or will one of the previous winners add to their tally?
3. Maznat is on a three-race streak for pole positions. Can he make it four in Britain?
4. The revised aerodynamics rules in 2017 have lead to much faster cornering speeds this season. Many corners around this week's track are now flat as a result. Is this something you like or did you prefer having to brake and/or modulate the throttle?

Both drivers in question appear strong heading into this race with a distinct possibility we'll see them on the podium.
2. With nine rounds complete, we've seen four different race winners. Will we see a fifth different victor this round or will one of the previous winners add to their tally?
Difficult to make this prediction. Statistically you'd have to bet wither kart, dreg, Maz or I would win again, but of course there are a few other drivers perfectly capable of knocking us off.
3. Maznat is on a three-race streak for pole positions. Can he make it four in Britain?
Hard to bet against him, but I'm sure we'll see a strong challenge from other top drivers.
4. The revised aerodynamics rules in 2017 have lead to much faster cornering speeds this season. Many corners around this week's track are now flat as a result. Is this something you like or did you prefer having to brake and/or modulate the throttle?
It certainly makes a difference here. I think I'd rather have 2016 physics back as battles were way more enjoyable.

Q: 2nd
Went in to the session thinking, looking for a 1.27.6, but would be content with a 1.27.7. Got myself the latter while the former would have got me pole. Damn.

R: 2nd
Didn't have the greatest reaction to the lights but still had a go at the first braking zone. Unfortunately dreglar lagged and I had no clue where he was. I opted to stay safe in P2 and back off him a bit, but in doing so lost DRS. I then gave dani pit preference on lap 9, which ultimately cost her a shot at third due to traffic and me a potential undercut. I also sped into the lane so I had a 5 second penalty over my head and from then I gave up on the chase for the win and cruised home for 18 points.

Q: 1st - I ended up only having one lap in qually and thankfully it was just enough to get pole. I came across Wayne on the hanger straight and he started weaving all over the track just as I was winding up for my lap. I had to take avoiding action which caused me to spin and subsequently put me in the fence and I lost my wing! That meant I only had time for one timed lap but luckily it was the one that counted.
R: 1st - Pretty simple race in the end. Got a good start but was slightly too cautious into the first hairpin which almost let Jacko through. He dropped back a bit after that and I built a 5sec lead before I pitting on lap 10. Jacko seemed to have more pace initially on the softs and trimmed the gap down to 4 secs but that’s as close as it got and I was able to cruise home from there to the end. Feels good to get the win especially as the championship is pretty much out of reach now with me missing races and having some messy rounds. Hopefully I can snag a few more before the seasons out.
