The final round of the year was as good as I could have hoped for. A semi wet qualifying ended with me on pole for both races. The first race was wet in which I had a lights to flag win. The second race started well with me taking the lead but lost it due to oil temperature and pressure issues so finished 2nd. In the end I came 2nd in the class championship only 4 points behind the winner, a good result after missing a round due to illness. To achieve 5 wins and 3 second places I am very happy with my performance this year but know development will be needed for next year.
After a messy qualifying which had a red flag then not a single clean lap due to slower cars I had 6th place starts for both races. The first race got off to a good start and I went on to make my way through the field. Some brave overtaking was done with a move round the outside going down the craner curves to take 2nd place and that’s where I finished the race.
The second race got off to a similarly good start and I started to make my way forward. A pass for 2nd place into the last chicane I unintentionally slid the rear into the large curb of the left going onto the straight which after investigation I found caused the front face of the left rear upright to start to break away from the side plate at the weld. This caused large toe in on the left rear upsetting the handling. I managed to keep going with the intension of getting the most points I could and ended the race in 5th. A good result from the weekend means I’m still 2nd in the class championship.
