Q: 2nd
Best qualifying result ever in this league. The car felt great on low fuel, and I maybe slung her in a little crazier than I would attempt during the actual race. If I had to miss out on my first pole, at least it was my teammate who snagged it :)

R: 4th
Had a great start and was side by side with Pitricio going into Eau Rogue. I did not want to risk any incidents, and fell back to 3rd behind Mats. I let "first time up front jitters" get the best of me and got a speed penalty on the 2nd lap in Eau Rouge and fell to 5th. Spent a solid 7 laps as close to SG's bumper as I could get, but did not risk any maneuver to cost us both. When SG pit, I stayed out one more lap and put all I could into it. I pitted on the next lap and came out ahead of SG and didn't look back to bring her home in 4th. Happy with the finish and happy my early mishaps did not cost anyone else.

What an amazing starting grid with both Rufs in the front, it was a dream. I never thought we could make it... :D

Anyway, the Rufs front row didn't last long. Mats took the lead after Les Combes. Then I did by best, but he made no mistakes and I finished 10 seconds behind him. Congratulations Mats for the win.

Also congratulations to Hootius for the qualy and for the 4th place finish. It is a very strong result for the team!

See you at Donington Park!

Q: 13
I couldn't get anything dialed in to be able to work in the rain. Just putting down a time was enough for me.
R: 12
Well, I finished. That was the only thing positive I feel I can say about this one. I just couldn't get anything working for the conditions, car ended up being way too loose and it showed as I spun probably 8 times before the end of lap 6. Finishing the race was my only goal after a lackluster qualifying.

Yeah Dray. I had issues getting the car to not oversteer in dry conditions then add the rain. Like I said, i was just happy to have finished lol.
