Another tale of what could have been with this race. I short fuelled for qualifying, but unfortunately, so did everyone else. So I started further back than I wanted in 15th and 20th.
The whole race I was very competitive, but my young drivers, both with little overtaking skill, were badly balked by those ahead. I got clear after the first stop, and was able to gain some time, but ended up finishing just outside the points in 11th and 12th places.
It did help to give me some confidence for race two though, because my speed was really good.
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.
