David Rainier's incredible consistency continued in Tripoli as he followed title rival Phil Thornton home to clinch the Privateers Trophy. Bravo David! Hendy Nichols still has a chance to overhaul Phil for second place, and with the track well known to everyone it should be a good last race of the season.

Tried hard in qually but I couldn't do better than 4th.  In the race I got a good start and just managed to avoid Cookie's Ferrari that bounced off the wall after he got a bit too much wheelspin off the line.  I had just enough speed to nip past David Rainier and take second place into turn 1.  A couple of laps later I managed to get past Hendy and take the lead and I settled down to try and pull a gap.  I was -4 when I made a stupid error (just one of many this season) and spun into T1.  This let David through into the lead.  I tried to stay on his tail but I seemed to have overheated my rear tyres and I spun in the twisty bit and David was gone.  I then had Cookie on my gearbox for a couple of laps until the power of the Lotus allowed me to pull away a bit.  With about 22 laps to go I was +9 and so I tried to drive carefully to preserve the tyres and hope that David made a mistake.  As the laps went by the gap stayed pretty static, with about 10 laps to go it was still +8.  As we started to encounter back markers the gap dropped to +5 and with two laps to go I pushed as hard as I could to try and put David under pressure.   At T2 there were three cars littering the track and as I drove past I was sure I caught a glimpse of a Lotus.  So it was either Hendy who I hadn't seen for a while or David.  With one lap to go my pit board showed me as P1, so it must have been David at T2 having got tangled up with some back markers.  Unlucky David.  A lucky win for me especially having made a couple of unforced errors.  Pleased to get the fastest lap which was a PB and under the pole time.

This has been one of the best seasons I have ever had in UKGPL.  I've driven better than I have ever done before and I'm very happy to be the runner-up after such an epic season.  Grats to David on the championship and to Hendy for a well deserved third place.

Really enjoyed this race. I am pretty awful in the 67's but I am improving.

Had an awesome first lap and passed seven cars... then I over rotated into the polos second time round and in avoiding the armco found myself last. Settled down to some steady laps and found myself chasing Billy and Blito hard. Had a go at Billy at the hairpin and thought I had got through but no and he had the inside line into the esses.... next time round I wasn't quite along side but took a tight line. Some wierd collision and I found myself facing the wrong way Sad Last again but this time I was chasing Phillipe. Gave it a few laps until I overcooked it at T1 again. Then Phillipe disappeared so I was pretty lonely. Lapped steadily with a couple of spins to keep me interested Wink and even managed to keep Cookie in view for three laps until another spin. Some of the spins were in wierd places as well which was frustrating.

Then t the end it all got lively, Fabio caught me and I let him past with a bit of rail riding at T1... heart in mouth, then I was being passed by the battle royale for 5th. Amazingly David in 1st was approachins as well and James had obviously had a problem because I could see him. A crafty 'use the leader' ploy evolved in my mind and all was going well until I fund a stricken red beast in my path Sad Avoided it but spun and that was that. Well nearly.

Spun at another wierd place and got stuck. Reset and found that the pit entrance was narrower than I realised. Pitted on the last lap and took the flag in the pit lane.

Although I was last, I had a target for most of the race and I really enjoyed it. Just goes to show that you don't need to win to enjoy the game. Which is lucky really, or I 'd have given this up by now  Cheesy

Well done to Phil, Hendy and David.

Many thanks to David for moderating.

Looking forward to Season 24 already.

An enjoyable race made even more satisfying as I'd saved up a few tokens and was able to drive one of the faster cars which allowed me some unaccustomed overtaking down the straights. Additionally I was driving the rubber coated version of the Ferrari which survived several fairly hefty contacts with other vehicles and barriers. Congratulations to the Champion and roll on Season 24. It's diificult to believe that this game is now a teenager thumbup2

Grats to the Champ David thumbup2

Grats to the race winner Phil  thumbup2

This was my first season in 67s and I just wanted to know where I am with these beasts...
I have only little experience how the different cars behave and where are the advantages to the others.
Yes, the Ferrari was a good choice for this track, as it has a good engine with some more grunt in the lower revs than the eagle.
I had tried some fast laps with the Eagle in the training sessions but it was allways on the edge...
Finaly I tried the Fez and found it was much better driveable, especially with the Roland Ehnstrom setup I took in the quali.

For the S24 I will take it more serious and hope to support the Antipastis in a better way Wink

I decided to take the slow Cooper, and was surprised to take 5th near the end of practice.  It was the safest choice for the race, but didn't prevent my fickle connection dumping me, annoyingly, in the closing seconds.Angry This has become all to familiar this Season, and I'll be trading in my roof for a new one, for Christmas, and hoping to do more serious battle, in the new year.

From where I sit, this has become a great championship.  It takes great skill to get these '67's around a Grand Prix track competitively.  This makes us all masters of our sport, and legends amongst our peers.  So it's congrats to our winners, and to all who raced hard, and raced well. Wink

Mexico has never been a great track for me. Survived with one nasty spin & blowing an engine on the second to last lap – being the last race of season though it best to take a SnG & cross the finish line.
It’s been one of the best 67 seasons that I have participated in – partly because the grids have been nearly full.
Congratulations to Rainier for taking the championship, pushed all the way by Phil & had they been a bit more consistent Hendy & Cookie were / would have been up there.
Also, well done to the Black Night Racing Team, Rainier, Dave Curtis & Fabio. Having four drivers regularly competing probably gave us a bit of an advantage.
Whilst new mods keep arriving there is something very special about these original  67 monsters & the challenge of keeping all that power on track (most of the time).

I had a brilliant race last night and loved every minute of it.
Qually was a struggle as I had done no practice and arrived with my BRM still wearing its Tripoli setup which really didn't work to well. I spent all of practice altering a great many things on the car and just about sorted it out but failed to set a proper time so I started dead last but we all know what happens at Mexico on lap one don't we Smiley
So after picking my way through the inevitable debris I settled down into a rhythm and plodded my way through the race, never really fighting anyone and never really worrying myself. Michael Turner made things interesting for the latter stages of the race by making mistakes and allowing me to slowly pull the gap in but to be fair the Beast of Bourne was never going to trouble his Prancing Horse and I was more than happy to finish 9th - 8 places better than I qualified with a best lap almost 3 seconds than my grid time!
I will echo the sentiments on others here and hail this 67 season as a great success! We have had good grids and great racing and some bloody good fun out there!

I should be happy winning the Privateers championship but yesterday evening (and still now) I was very disappointed to loose this race in such a way.
I was managing the gap with Phil who was pushing very hard at the end of the race but I was confident with 5 seconds at 2 laps of the end. as I was regurlarly running between 1'49 and 1'50 an I knew Phil could not do 1'47''50 at this stage (with his too hot tyres).
 
But as Phil said, I was rejoining a group of 4 back markers when one of them, a Ferrari driven by ...one of my team mates, spun just in front of me at the end of the Peraltida turn and I had to hardly brake.
Hardly braking in a turn like this one could only give this result : I spun and saw Phil going his way.
I really wanted to win here, because in that way Phil, Hendy and me would have 3 wins ...instead of that I am winning the championship with less victories than these 2 excellent drivers.   

I have to say the back markers were not all very fair, I am not speaking of my team mate in the Ferrari, but during the qually I was blocked 4 or 5 times and could never approach the best time of 1'48''30 I did the day before with the same setup.
During the race, it was better even if I still do not understand Bernie's behaviour during the last lap when I was doing my best to rejoin Phil : from the hairpin till the last turn before finish line, he blocked me. I think he was fighting with another driver but in the same situation, I would have let the leaders pass.

For this I will report an incident and I will not participate at this race moderation.

Sorry you did not enjoy the race David .

As for the last lap , yes I was racing hard , very hard , and enjoying every minute of it .

No I did not block you , in fact I gave you the racingline into the hairpin and was suprised to come out of there ahead , through the esses it was rather difficult to cede without the risk of a spin , as you yourself found through the doughnuts on the previous lap ? you were some 7 or 8 seconds behind Phil so that would have been one hell of a last lap .

For the race I had a great time but then I and others on here dont need to be race winners every time out to enjoy our racing and the good company

It isnt always easy being a back marker but I guess you wouldnt know much about that , however should I ever find myself in the unlikely position of lapping you , I look forward to you moving over  Smiley

Congrats to the podium and all other GPL racers and thanks for a great season to all who organised  Smiley

Once you are in the esses it is extraordinarily hard to let anyone go without totally compromising yourself. Frustrating for a leader but that is the luck of the draw...

I enjoyed very much this race ...except the 2 last laps  Smiley


No I did not block you , in fact I gave you the racingline into the hairpin and was suprised to come out of there ahead , through the esses it was rather difficult to cede without the risk of a spin , as you yourself found through the doughnuts on the previous lap ?

On the hairpin, you went to the apex ...that was not what I was thinking you'll do. And I have to be very cautious as it is not easy to be both on the same line at this turn.

you were some 7 or 8 seconds behind Phil so that would have been one hell of a last lap . 
Not exactly. I finished the race  5,6 seconds behind Phil and I think I lost 1,5 sec - 2 seconds during the last lap.
I could have put some pressure on Phil ...like he did with me during 25 laps !
 
By the way, at this moment not you and not me would have been able to know exactly if the gap between  Phil and me was 2 or 7 or 45 seconds ! 


For the race I had a great time but then I and others on here dont need to be race winners every time out to enjoy our racing and the good company 
It's exactly the same for me ...hopefully, because I  won less victories than Phil and Hendy !  Smiley
and I could say the same with you : I don't need to be 7th instead of 8th to enjoy racing.
It seems natural for you to push hard for a 7th place ...but it is not natural for me to do the same for the win !!!!!  Shocked


It isnt always easy being a back marker but I guess you wouldnt know much about that , however should I ever find myself in the unlikely position of lapping you , I look forward to you moving over  Smiley

 
I am very often a back marker in the other mods (67 is the one where I have the best results) and you just have to look the replays to see my attitude.
But not sure, I will do the same with you when it will happen Smiley
