Race: Well that was a dissapointment. First off Sorry Sean. I got off great I thought. But my car whipped back towards Sean as he was spinning up some. I will take that one 100%. Turn 1 lap 2 was more contact as the car I passed turned into me. Now the car is blue on the front right and rear left. I guess you got me back for the start.
Got you back? I don't even remember any contact in turn 1 with anyone.

The only damage I had was the Left Rear. I remember getting close to a car, but didn't think we touched. (thought it was Glyn. I'll have to look back at replay.) If it was me that got into you, Adam. I'm sorry for that. It wasn't a pay back, in anyway. I don't want you to think I would do that. There is only one driver I race like an asshole, because he races me that way, and everyone else. :P

No hard feelings. We have had clean battles and not so clean battles but I don't think you would do that on purpose. I relish every moment good and bad. It makes me want to quit and fires me up to battle all at the same time. Once again my apology on the start.

Schizo Race Jutsu is coming I promise. Believe it!! Yeah it sounds scary to me to.

Err. I have no idea what that means. Sounds like an old Japanese movie monster.

After having such a disaster of a race in Germany (SRH) I am happy to finally getting back to form. As always, it is never easy as it may look to some. Having Glyn, Sean, Rix and Adam starting closely behind there is no telling which place we will be in exiting T1.

Started on hards, lap times were about as expected but tire wear was a bit higher than expected. Glyn decided to pull a Hamilton and went for a longer 1st stint and after he pitted the chase was on. Pushed hard all night, didn't make any big mistakes, happy to win this one.

Congrats to Glyn and Jeff for their podium finish.

And now on to my least favorite part of the season...summer break.

I'll try and remember to check out replay tonight. As I honestly don't remember any contact into turn 1 with anyone, and my car only had the damage on the LR suspension. Usually when you touch another car you get a light blue on the car map, where the contact took place.

I looked at replay. I thought you were talking about lap 1 turn 1, but I see you're talking about lap 2 turn 1. I just thought you braked too late and under steered into me. I thought I had given enough room. The next lap you put your right sides on the curb, like I normally do. On lap 2, turn 1 I have a car width or more there, but you weren't near the curb that lap. I really didn't think anything of it at the time. Like I said I just thought you braked too late and had some under steer. It certainly wasn't payback in anyway from me. We just touched and I turned left to give even more room at that point. I didn't even get any light blue damage from it. Sorry if that damaged you.

I got the server replay as mine showed too much car over lap to be accurate. From that replay it was a wheel to wheel contact that was a perfect match. Just looked like close racing. No one moving into each other. Just a direct hit on the rears. If there was some lag, on either driver's end, you may have thought room was still there.
