That was a great race for me, it isn't often that I have the leader in sight when he crosses the finish line! I started carefully so I had to get a move on and pick my way past a few people before the leaders disappeared and the chance of a tow was gone. Thankfully I managed to latch onto the back of Evil and Yannick and we swapped places and slipstreamed for over a dozen laps. We were gradually reeling in JonnyO and Clive but they just remained out of slipstream distance. When JonnyO went off I thought we'd have a chance to catch Clive but he had too much of a gap and he held on for a well deserved win.

Results not up yet Phil?
They are now Wink. The Works Championship is tight at the top. Looks like Francesco is running away with the Privateers  scooter

Very exciting race for me, Reims always delivers.

Ferrari isn't very good but the best car for high speed tracks after Mercedes & Lancia.
I had a good qualifying but made it myself hard on lap 2.
The Ferrari massively understeered into the grass, at which a bump inconviniently made me spin back onto the tarmac.
I didn't feel any contact, but from what I gathered one person was not particularly happy with it.

A regained places pretty fast and spent much battling with Evil and Phil for 3rd.
They were better on the straights but I was strong in the corners and brakes.
I'd figure if we played our cards right we could catch Clive Loynes and Jonny for 1st.
And I think we did well together. We were almost there until I rid myself from brakes at the last turn and nullify the progress.

I could catch up with them, but Clive Loynes now on his own was too far ahead.
Evil eventually got the better of me on the last lap so I settled with 3rd.

Grats to Clive and Clive Grin Grin Grin for the podium.
See you next time Smiley

Very sorry to Hallu.For caution i start to brake earlier than my usual and out of the slip stream but,in this way,i got the opposite.
My brake were red before the curve.What I'm sorry is that your race was finished,i have searced your car in my mirror to give you the position but don't more appear.

Firstly, I must say a big thank-you to the Old Fella down in Bristol for knitting together my Lancia setup.  It's a little gem and whilst originally crafted for Spa, it seems to perform just about anywhere.  I had it in its unadulterated version for this race, with the exception of his mad 6:1 steering ratio, as it turned in a bit better than the tamed version that I usually use.  Cheers mate!    Grin

The race was hard work from beginning to end.  There were no less than seven Streamliners in that field, and in fields is where most of them ended up.  Did they ever make that many?
Jonny made a poor start and I was able to grab second spot off the line, behind Enrique in his SL.  The SL owned the straights but on the section from T1 to T4, the Lancia was king, so long as you had the correct 5th gear to stay with the SL down the straights.

The only hope for the Lancia was to harass the Merc from T1 to T4 and wait for a mistake.  This slowed us down a little and the chasing pack were right with us on lap two, when Evil ran out of brakes and fired his Lancia down the inside of me at T4, collecting Enrique at mid corner.  That put me in the lead but Jonny had recovered from his bad start and it didn't take long before he cruised past on the straight.  Thus began a battle that lasted until four laps from the end.

I got the feeling that Jonny had done this before.  He had taken pole position with a good lap but when it came to the end of the main straight he always guarded the inside line, leaving me with the uninviting prospect of trying to go around the outside, hoping that he had got his braking right.  This tactic ensured that he was always first across the line, so long as he didn't scrape the wall.  It also meant that the chasing pack were still close at hand because it compromised his lap time.  My throwing the Lancia up the inside at T2 didn't help matters either.

It was a great battle and I had just about given up on finding a way around the SL when he went very wide at T3 and the last I saw of him he was heading straight for the marshal's shed.

Many thanks to Enrique and Jonny for the good clean fun and many thanks to Evil for his attack on Enrique.  Just a shame that he recovered to take 2nd spot as I need him to finish further back than that!

Big congratulations to Fran and Tago, bringing home the points for SBRC.   thumbup2

Huh?!!!!  How on earth do you get your tyres into the red in a 55 car Bastian?? I have found the tyres on these cars to be just about bullet proof?? It would be interesting to see your setup and see what parameters were set.

As for Mr Loynes winning performance,
I have to say "well done at Reims and I am ( maybe ) pleased that his success was due to my gift of a setup when he first struggled with these 55's".
 ..............I won't make that mistake again  lol !!!!  Roll Eyes

As with any of these slipstreaming circuits, qualification is not as important as the first lap and the last lap. Provided that you are in the draft of the lead group the majority of the race is a question of survival? My slide into Enrique's SL probably had a big influence on the outcome of the race as it dropped the 2 of us out of the tow and allowed Clive L and Jonny to escape. Enrique was doing a grand job of pulling us back into contention until he ran wide and it was left to Yannick, Phil and myself to try and work ourselves back.
We were closing the gap very slowly, but Jonny's SL was just too fast on those long straights. When Jonny stopped for a beer with the marshalls, I thought that Clive's lone Lancia would be a sitting duck but he refused to wait for us !! The three of us did close the gap, but it was not until the final lap that I noticed the first signs that we were picking up the tow down the long straight and my top speed was 3-5 mph higher. (Phil had in explicably dropped back over the previous 2 laps?? He was still in slipstream range but appeared to be losing ground, did you have a problem Phil?.)

 In an earlier lap Yannick had followed me out of the final corner and still outdragged me to the S/F line in his rapid Fezza. I had slipstreamed past Yannick on the long straight and nailed the final corner, but I am sure that it was just the slight effect of the tow from Clive L's car 250 mtrs ahead that prevented Yannick from drafting back to take 2nd as we raced to the line.
There was a point in the race when Jonny and Clive were away in front and Phil, Yannick and myself were fighting for 3rd, that I wondered if 5th would be the best that I might get in the final lap lottery. So, to sneak second was a real bonus.

Just to add a little ray of sunshine to Clive's ( and everyone else's thoughts ) I will miss the next race at Silverstone  Wink Wink Grin Grin  But I will be back for the mayhem at Indy.

Had to join by IP as no iGOR race server , felt certain I had used the practice server password to join and was tooling around trying to find a set up when the race got flagged up , quickly dived into "set up" to fill the tank , tried to load my Avus set up as that seemed to work well previously . computer said NO , so got back out just in time to miss the start . joined from the pits so already a lap down and with the dammed default set up installed ! Rev meter was bouncing off the end stop down the straights with chunks of valve shooting out the exhaust , No worries as there are only 3 straights here , but then realised at the speed I was travelling down the straights I would be getting lapped every 5 rounds , feeling dejected I pulled over and parked it up to watch the race . good entertainment watching the leaders argue the toss .

Grats to the podium , Loynsey for the win , and the Soogyass boys and all the rest of the rank & file whoever you are that managed a finish .
