Well...rain AGAIN...it's pretty unbelievable. I've always hated racing in the wet, I prefer going balls out over trying not to crash every corner, but after this weekend and the past 5 races, f@#% it, time to embrace the rain, I'll be a fan soon enough, and the changeable conditions are really growing on me.
My video is so laggy I haven't gone back through it so I'm working from memory here. Decent start, held 2nd spot but pretty soon after the beginning I got sideways and Canuk had no problem seizing the opportunity.the take the position. Almost the whole race, me Gunner and Canuk were all within a corner of each other, and some of the time, straight up nose to tail. Gunner and Canuk were doing most of the battling and there really wasn't a dull moment.
All three of us pitted at the same time, Gunner and Canuk went onto S and I went on to US - I think I had pretty good pace but it wasn't quite quick enough to make a real move on one of them. I seemed like my tires wore a bit quicker, but theirs degraded faster. I really wanted to try the undercut but I knew I wouldn't make it to the end.
Sometime during the third stint, around the time that I was starting to lose hope of passing them, I received a bittersweet gift from the race gods...as I rounded the last corner I saw one of the cars ram the other, and both were moving slow after. My mouth was literally hanging open and I moved into first by the next turn. I'm very sorry that the action ended in that moment especially since they were basically nose to tail for the whole race in first and second, they both deserved better, but it was just a freak accident.
I didn't make a highlight reel because my video is incredibly laggy for some reason, it's barely watable. During these races it tends to be pretty laggy for me anyway, but not like you see in the video. Not sure if it's worth checking out but I posted it anyway.
Let me know if you wanna practice for Austria!
