After the top three in the points standings fell by the wayside at Dijon, Bartosz Antoszcyszyn took a surprise win for Clark-Hill, with Arf^3 securing his best result of the season with second place. The teams now head to Lake Mellaha and the very fast circuit at Tripoli.

Grats to the podium and to Raoni for lapping his Honda at a competitive speed....something I did not quite manage!!

I knew from experience that this track could melt engines so I geared my Waza very conservatively to try and keep the oil temp down. When it reaches 260F in the Honda bits start to fall off!!

As a result 2nd gear was too high for the hairpin and I lost ground out of that corner every lap. But, to be honest I was never going to match the pace of the Eagles around here and survive the race.
One spin dropped me too far back from Raoni and Andy Livingstone to pick up any slipstream and from then on I was reliant on others dropping out.....which a few were kind enough to do  Wink

At about half distance i was up to 6th and a few laps later I was 5th...but still running last! I considered quitting then as I was getting lonely but decided to carry on in case someone had a late engine failure.. and of course for the satisfaction of getting a Waza to the finish!!

I was following the pack at the back when I went wide at the first right hander and rejoining the track too fast I went on my roof down the enbankment.  Sad

First off, sorry to Bart.  After my inevitable first spin we collided as you came past and I got going again.  I thought getting going would be the best idea so that I didn't lie in wait for others, a shame we both went to the same side.

I made a good start from 5th and took the lead at the first corner, which was the total opposite to my start at Dijon.  I did little practice at this track once I'd seen how few corners there were, but being off the pace in qualifying I expected to have company soon.  Al kept the pressure up a second back and it stayed more or less that way until my spin.  Thereafter I was behind Doni who I slowly caught and passed, then straight away binned it big time at the same place as my earlier spin, I was pleased not to have taken you out Doni.

Gongrats to all finishers and especially Al for a well controlled drive

See you in Mexico.

Bob.

On the face of it a simple track layout, but for some reason in practice I just couldn't get my head round it & kept crashing at the same corners again & again, before finally getting it through my thick head. Terrific pole lap by Art (again). Prib was cruelly taunting me with the prospect of getting into the 47's, but my skills deemed otherwise... still I was pleased to just hold onto 2nd by about a hundredth ahead of my teammate Bartosz & only a couple of tenths ahead of Ronnie, so was expecting a very close race. While Art was a little sluggish off the line, I thought I got a pretty decent start & was about to pat myself on the back, when Bob thundered past & straight off into the lead. Great start from 5th place Bob (but of course he was on the clean side of the grid Cheesy )

Following Bob in the early laps, I noticed his car disappear briefly & it also made a couple of bunny-hops - after our crazy warp contact in the last race, this made me a bit worried about getting alongside, though having said that I needed to catch him first! Unfortunately for Bob, before I had a chance to mount my challenge, he clouted the sandbags at the fast RH & spun back into the middle of the track - I managed to brake hard & squeeze through on the inside (we really must stop meeting like this Wink ) but it seems Bart was rather less lucky. A real shame as me & Bart were very evenly matched & had some great fun racing on the practice server.

Having got into the lead, I soon got very paranoid about blowing my engine & with a few seconds breathing space back to Doni, tried to spend a few laps cooling down the overheated oil temperature. Adopting some higher gears, lower revs & lifting over that bump at the final turn, seemed to do the trick & after that, I just concentrated on not chucking it all away until the flag. Congratulations to Doni & Andy for the podium & special medals for anyone who didn't take an Eagle Wink Bad luck again Art - remind me never to get on the same plane as you Cheesy     

P.S. I forgot to say well done to the "once-great" Clark-Hill for securing the team championship Wink

No problem Bob, but next time don't go across the track like you did yesterday. It's actually the worst thing driver can do in situation like this, IMO the best way is to not move and let others go around you Wink

Unfortunately that was the end for me, I've managed to get going again, but car was damaged. I've lost some power and on next lap engine exploded.

My whole race is here

A thousand pardons for the late filing, chaps.

Grats to Al for a fine victory!  From P2 on the grid, he drove smart as well as fast to claim the top step on the podium.  Further, he nailed down the FTD, had no ‘64' laps and was most consistent.  It doesn’t get much better than this.  (BTW, in checking GPLRank this morning for some reference times on other tracks, I note that Al has recently set two WR’s in the CanAms.  Well done, Al!)

A fine run from Andrew to claim P3 at the finish with Eagles sweeping the podium.  Great job!

A P2 finish for me is most gratifying.  My race was relatively uneventful.  Racing only gets really exciting when things go wrong!

From P7 on the grid, I got a fine launch and passed a number of cars that were slow getting away and claimed P4 by the time we got thru T1.  Most unexpected.

I was getting a modest but useful tow from Bart’s Eagle running in P3 and this helped me stay out of the clutches of Attilio and Triple-A running not far behind me.

The only real trouble I had all race long was mis-judging the shallow right-hander about 1/3 of the way round the lap.  This is the one where the roadway drops away part way thru the corner.  I consistently went in a little too deep to find myself perilously close to dropping a wheel off onto the verge on the left and having to soft-pedal it.  Down on my knees praying there. Smiley After several close shaves, I finally got wise and slowed my entry to get a good, fast and proper exit.

Lap4 was key in that the first four runners were within five seconds and with Bob leading, he spun in the first of the slow rights.  Al was barely a second down and managed to squeak by safely.  Not so Bart from P3.  He clipped Bob’s Eagle and spun wildly.  I arrived a moment later to find an Eagle slalom as a challenge to negotiate.  Bob was on the left and only just managing to get up to speed.  Bart was on the right and probably still wondering WTH just happened.  With what could only be described as the greatest luck, I skipped though the hole to claim P2.  While Bob recovered pace nicely to give chase to me, poor Bart had his engine go sour just 3/4 of a lap later.  Bad luck.

Starting Lap5 some four seconds down on Al whom I could readily see up ahead, I was determined to protect a potentially good finish by not doing anything radical.  I was only a couple of seconds ahead of Bob.  Lap6 and a 360 from Bob in the ‘hairpin’ set him back several more seconds and it looked like I was in solid for a P2 finish.  Not so.

Bob started to push very hard and he reduced the gap to a mere one second starting Lap11.  Al had become just a small dot in the distance ahead with a lead of some seven seconds.  Now catching my slipstream, Bob steamed by easily in the lap.  This wasn’t a major blow to my chances as I figured that his faster pace might just pull me along with the possible prospect of catching Al for the lead.  Hmmm...

MON DIEU!  At the very same corner that had Bob spin away the lead earlier, he ran wide, got buried in the sandbags and struck the end of the barrier at speed.  He ricocheted across the road directly in front of me.  Only a moment to close my eyes and hope for the best.  MADE IT!  PHEW!  Only by a whisker did I avoid getting collected as Bob’s Eagle caromed across the road to strike some palms on the infield.  Adding insult to injury, one of them promptly inverted his Eagle.  Fini.  Bad luck after a nice comeback, Bob.

I wasn’t aware that Bob had been KO’d and partly expected to see him marching back up from P4 but that wasn’t the case.  Andrew was consistently shown as P4 some 18 seconds down.  For the balance of the race, I just cooled it and played it safe, quite satisfied with a P2 score.

I crunched some numbers for the pace of the event and came up with the following.  Al’s average speed over the distance translated to a cool 170.3 mph(275.9 kph).  Not too shabby. Smiley
