I honestly can’t believe this was an official race… I joined with about two minutes to go and became the seventh entrant – making it official. For some reason two of those who had registered forfeited and went to do something else and that left five of us in the server – for an official race!

I hadn’t bothered to qualify (I actually wanted to run the SK Modified, but at this time in the morning everyone seems to be running the Skip Barber Race Series). I would start fourth.

I got a bit of a slow start and dropped behind a slower car. This lost me about three seconds over the first five or six laps until I passed him. Once I did I had to work really hard trying to close down the two cars that were now ahead and this actually was a lot of fun! Trying to get my lines right each lap, trying to eek away 0.1s per lap to close them down actually made the race interesting for me…

Anyway, I wound up finishing third. I was the fastest man on the track and set a best lap of 21.003. I’m slightly dissapointed about my poor start because I could have been right with those guys and made it an even more interesting race – but nevermind!

I ran an absolutely clean race. I do remember brushing the wall once, but it didn’t result in a safety rating penalty.
