Having fun - I am the older guy in the green t-shirt
Only 8 drivers, but great fun !! I was the first race in this area (in the country?) for these cars, so we had not expected a great turnout, but that attended, can't hardly wait for the next race :-)
I have only raced one time before for the last 4 month due to illness so I really looked forward to race, eben I
if i was a bit nervous if I could hold out for the complete race, but as it turned out, I had no reason to be nervous and a has a ball og a nght :-)
We ran best of two rounds and 4 min. stints on the the 6 lane track with 4 drivers in each heat. Qualification determined your start position/heat:
My car was fastest in practice and i won qualifying, which was nice as the first heat with the slowest drivers was a messy thing with a lot of track call.
My heat had nearly no track calls and only a few incidents. I took the lead from the start and never looked back, and even an accident caused by a car i my lane, which cost me 4-5 laps in pit for repairs, did not bring my heat win in danger.
The first heat in second round was more calm and the drivers seemed to get more familar with their cars and the second heat were nearly a copy of the first round, as I took off and left the other fighting intensely in my trail :-)
