    Big thanks to Carl for once again putting together a great race event.

    Had some great battles throughout the evening but race two Jason and I had a great battle for many a lap right to the very end well done Jason we crossed that line so close, was pleased to you win race three as well.

    As for Steve just don't know how you do it your so consistently quick well done mate and well done to the podium winners.

    Really enjoyed it look forward to the next one thanks everyone for a great nights racing and a good laugh.

    First off, a giant apology to meridian for the rough foreplay in turn one of race two......

    There is no excuse for driving you this way and I hope you can understand that that is not typical of my driving habits. But be it as it was, it was naughty and admin may take a look here:

    Other than that it was a delight to get on with you gents for a weekend. I miss you all so much and hope to make at least two consecutive weeks in a row????

    I have been away for sometime. Amazed at the pace you fellas set. Kudos to you all!

    Edit: thank you Carl and thanks much for having me guys! Get well Bruce

    Talk about making it hard for myself!

    Qualified on pole, stuffed the start and spun out at the end of the first lap! Didn’t even think this car could spin out.

    Rejoined 16 seconds down on first and just tried to keep it clean for the rest of the race, hoping to pick up the odd place along the way. Was so chuffed to get up to 3rd by the end of the race. Just. By 0.016 I think. Sorry Elias!

    Race 2 was a bit better, but still too many small mistakes made. Take nothing away from Elias though, great drive under pressure. I pushed as hard as I could to get by and try to make the break, but he hung on in there capitalising on any mistakes I made. Top drive.

    Race 3 was a bit hazy. Can’t really remember much apart from the chase down I tried on Jason. I settled for second with a couple of laps to go, but he then made a couple of small mistakes. This spurred me on to try for that top spot. I could see he was getting a little more ragged the closer we got to the end ( squeaky butt time! ) but he kept it together to take a great win.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the racing, and was it 3 different winners? Also, great to see Kevin back on track. Won’t be long before we see him at the sharp end once again.

    Thanks to Carl and Nigel for organising and hosting.

    Brilliant stuff!

    Roman's Rapid Recap!

    There was no hitting someone on race 1 turn 1 from cold tires as I payed attention. May have stumbled across the line from a hangover (and a nap right before). So pretending to be Kimi Raikonnen let's look at the recap

    R1 - Steve spun so this was my change to make up ground. Had a good battle with Jason until he made a mistake then it was on to chasing Carlos. The gap never changed and then with 3 to go my concentration went and I took too much inner curb on T5, hit the wall and spun. Then I had Steve up my trumpet and a good battle but in the end he just eeked me out for the last podium.........you wanq! :p

    R2 - I forgot how I assumed the lead but I assumed the lead. Then Steve decided he wanted seconds and I told him to piss off. Great hard battle and I almost threw it away as on the straight coming to the checkers I meant to look behind me but instead hit the ebrake........but I won so that's that.

    R3 - Steve wore me out from race 2 so much I was on fumes at this point in my current condition. Nigel also found some great pace and was hard to pass. Eventually my concentration decided to have better things to do and I must have crashed and spun a dozen or so times and came home 5th.

    Great racing. Wish I was a bit faster but it shows how competitive this series is. One mistake and you're off into the weeds. Enjoy the Holidays and I'll see everyone soon.

    It is nice to eventually be able to write a report normally I'm half a lap behind everyone lol but Race 3 was awesome with me, Rob & Kev having a decent battle for the last 8 or so laps, got a good start but lost out to Rob on the first corner but managed to take back the lead through the esses up the hill but then got over excited and binned at the chicane at the bottom of the hill and ended up one from the back with Steve about 3 secs behind me, within about 2 corners he was past me lol so I just concentrated and got my head down and caught up with Kev and Rob which ended with Kev losing it at the chicane Rob thinking he touched Kev so slowed I ploughed through a cloud of Kev's ghosted car straight into the back of Rob didnt really know whether to slow down or not because for once I wasn't to blame so carried on to the end to finish 6th

    Great close racing between you, @Robabt111, and myself for quite a few laps. I would take that any day! Well done to you for taking the top spot in our little battle!

    Who knew that this car could produce such racing , never mind xmas i need a break from the pressure and tension its exhausting . the time management adds to it well done Carl .
    Although the first two races where similar in that most of my race was solo midfield the track demanded accuracy and concentration with very little margin for error, as an off would cost a lot of time, so just to maintain any position required some work and by the end of the second race i was ready for a driver change .
    So glad that didnt happen as the third race was such a blast , cheers Andy and Kev , not the first little battle i have had with Kev and as always it was great fun , as for Andy the opportunist in you shone through :D , all good bud it was good fun no worries about the bump i remembered you were behind me after i slowed and not before doh so it was your place to take .
    Great to see a start of 10 lets hope for more double figure grids .
    Three different winners but only four different people on the podium , showing some great consistency at the front .
    Cheers for setting this one up Carl and Nigel for the secure hosting and to everyone that turned up making it such fun .

    Hope everyone has a happy christmas and prosperous new year .

    I just realized i have been here for exactly one year many many thanks to all of you that i have chatted to raced with and or rammed crashed and punted at some time . I thank you for your time and for being .

    Where has that year gone Rob anyways glad you stuck with us for a year fortunately Jim hasn't raced with us much this year so that would have helped:rolleyes:.
    I remember Kevin came on tremendously the first twelve months in the club and you have equally come on as well, you're getting quicker each event so well done mate and keep it up.
