The guys at iGP had some server issues in this race. I think if I had been given a chance to run the race, and have control, I would have done a little better than I did. As it was, I battled into and around the top-10 most of the race.
I qualified with heavy fuel, deciding to run a longer first stint and try to keep up using DRS each lap. That went fairly well, but my tires overheated while I was unable to login and tell my drivers to take it easy. Towards the end of the race I again did well, closing in for 12th and 14th-place.
Not too disappointed. I liked how well a heavy first stint worked, and I think it might actually work better than a light first stint (and a better qualifying spot). I really hope I am able to get a points finish in these last two races…
Brazil is up next… Rain much?
I began my gaming journey via the family Commodore Vic-20, then later with my own C-64 and Amiga A600. These systems kept my attention until I moved up to PCs around the Windows MS-DOS Pre-Windows 95 era, which means I never really got into the console gaming market in a big way.
My parents spent a significant amount of time sharing my early gaming experiences, and this really helped foster my interests. I discovered racing games and space games for the first time, and those are still my main genres of interest to this day.
These days I use gaming to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch, and enjoy the social interaction with viewers and other gamers.
