Season 40 – 1955 Grand Prix – Round 9 – Works - Monsanto Park

This race announcement is for the WORKS.

The ninth race in the 1955 Grand Prix series takes us to Portugal. The street circuit of Monsanto Park to be precise. Built on parkland, the circuit was considered difficult to drive because it crossed so many different types of surfaces, including tramlines at one point. The track hosted numerous races from 1954 to 1959, but only one race qualified as a Formula One event: the 1959 Portuguese Grand Prix, won by Stirling Moss. He won the race in the twilight hours, since the race was purposefully started late in the day to avoid the intense late summer sun.

After spending all of my tokens over two races I needed to refill again, so the Gordini it was.
I managed to qualify third just in between Doni and Pete.

Start was obviously slow. The Gordini needs a 5-speed gearbox as I needed the first gear for a good number of turns around this track.
I dropped a few places but I got my way around the drivers that passed, included one beauty around the outside of Bastian.
I could make my way up to third where I had to give my best to keep up with Doni. I could catch him, but a few mistakes dropped me to 4th behind Pete, who on his turn could catch up to Doni. At the same time I was able to catch up with the two for a three way fight.

This unfortunately turned into just me and Doni after I went for a gap on Pete at Windmill Bend. But we made contact and he got spun around. Sorry, Pete, that's on me I think... Sad
I put the pressure on Doni in my attempt to get second place, and it came down to the wire on the final lap. In what was one of the most sensational final laps I have ever driven I got on him on the last corner. Great battle, Doni.

See you next race.

Great result with the Gordini Yannick.

I shall watch the replay to see how it is done.

Doni crossing the line rearwards is the highlight of the season!  I Am Not Worthy

Only one way to call this one...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5O4073zCKA

Great job by Leo to waltz away to a convincing win.  I had nothing for him.  So depressing to see him inch away, lap after lap.  Sigh...

Early laps saw me holding well in P2 with first Pete and then Yannick several seconds down.  I felt fairly confident of holding the runner-up spot provided I didn't bungle it.  That came oh so close to being the case when the Lancia skidded to the right on braking for the Clover Leaf on Lap14 and I had to tip-toe around the outside to save it.  Lost quite a bit of time in doing so.  Pete and Yannick were ever closer now and seeming to be quite willing to take risks that I wouldn't.  Lap17 could have seen it all shake out in my favour when Yannick stuck it up the inside of Pete at Windmill and biffed him off the road.  Tsk, tsk...  This pretty much eliminated Pete from the battle and left me with a small lead over Yannick.  Pete's chances really took a nosedive when he stuffed it into the bales at the Clover Leaf the very next lap and lost a ton of time.  Comes Lap19 and with obviously more grip and cohonnies than I, Yannick tried to shove it up the inside for place at the Riding School.  This scared me wide and he passed.  Lap20 and I got the pass done on the main straight to retake P2.  Finishing the lap, I was a bit wide on entry to the Pit Hairpin and we went through there virtually side-by-side.  Drama!  Last lap and approaching the Riding School, Yannick is able to pull to the right much faster than I in setup for the corner and this forces me to stay tight left.  He takes a stab at a pass on the exit but has to yield for the sweeper to the right to follow.  I didn't have time to set properly for Windmill and on the exit, he's half-way up on my left.  Only the Pit Hairpin left now and bugger it all, I bungled it by going wide and letting him through.  In trying to gas it for a shot up the hill to the line, the D50 got away from me, spun, clipped a pole and I was obliged to select reverse to cross the SFline.  PHEW!  Rather disappointed in the result but it could have been worse.
