    Nick thanks for running the series!
    Grats to Rui on the pole and win, it looked flawless with really impressive pace.

    For my race, I sat on the grid and suddenly thought shit I haven't tried a race start in one of these it might go sideways so I was a little bit easier on the start but it only cost me one place as Aiden got past me, sat in about 1.5 seconds back and slowly began to catch up Nick and Aiden as Rui was already on his way, I eventually caught up right behind Aiden and he got wide at Stowe and span across the front of me, looked like he collected it ok and carried on. after that gradually gained on Nick and sat in around .3 to 1 second behind for most of the race, as I was not going to risk a pass and I was only going to make a pass if he made a mistake, eventually he did but only a small one and I got down the inside into t1 but made sure I left enough room that I was not going to push Nick off track :) Nick managed to just stay in front and did so for the remaining few laps after I made a couple of small errors that cost me a few seconds, it was nice racing with both Aiden and Nick.

    I have to say thanks to the guys in qualy for moving over when their runs were done and also the lapped traffic, from what I saw the driving was really considerate

    Cya next time.

    Thank you all for making me feel welcome :) and with little practice I’m really pleased with how the race turned out.
    John never left my back once I’d spun and I managed to keep him behind me while carrying some damage.
    Was good clean battling and really enjoyed it see you guys next time :)

    Yeah, that was a fun race with Aiden. Didn't have the advantage where it mattered to atempt a pass, but he did a great job keeping me behind and was a little bit quicker then me overall. So 4th place well deserved :)
