    As for the incident on lap 38 Olaf is clipped by Doni who spins and Olaf goes off. He then makes what I would call an "unsafe re entry" coming back to track onto the racing line and John has nowhere to go. The speed makes it an invevitable DNF for John.

    3 stewards are now in place for next season to rule on incidents like these.

    We all share the inclination to not loose more time than necessary when racing in gpl and that causes us to sometimes make unsafe decisions and moves. I would add however that after 9 races with this format we are left with only a handful of incidents and the the whole field shows a high degree of sportsmanship and will to keep it clean in the races. But in gpl its bound to happen from time to time.

    Doni : Yes there will be a review thread , I will post it after the mexico race next week.

    Jani : Bummer to hear this , it would have been great to see you on the grid. If you check your message thread with me over at weekly I think you will find the race pswd there. In any case I will send you a pm here on the forum.

    Pelle : Dont know what to say about the tire management other than practice makes perfect I suppose. I was struggling massively yesterday towards the end and thought for a sec I might have to pit for fresh rubber but managed to eek my way to the finish but the wear was pretty severe on the glen. Think I was doing 1:08s in the last laps.

    Have always had problems here at WG with tyretemp rear, but after countless changes on setup it became better before the race. I therefore don't understand that my tires disappear so fast. Yes, I'm slide a bit with the rear, but avoid almost the whole race without blocking & tires are gone after 5 laps
    Qual was also a little weird, after several days on server with practice. Here my tires were gone on 2 laps, but in qual I couldn't get them up in temp & on Pribluda they were in blue

    Maybe too much slide in Powerslide ... same year as GPL

    Fantastic race! I had very fun driving. This short track is a challenge to get the right traction and line where the tires overheat easy. Grats to Rainer and Pelle! Grats to all at the grid too!

    Training: Understeering at the Esses was the first problem, and I was far from my ten years old lap time. Did a lot of diff-settings. Defaults don’t work, had to use a downloaded asymmetric, and try different diffs. Here it was very many laps and setups to try. Fun testing on the server. A clean lap at training modus offline improved my Eagle time a little after hard works. When pushing many laps, the left tire overheating and the right still cool, but in control when smoother braking.

    Practice: 1:05.328 was a good lap, no chance to improve this by more laps.

    Race: From the start John overtakes me. His Lotus in front and Dag’s Brabham back, I was able to hold the line and the distance from Dag. Had lot of fun when fighting the car and avoid missing. After some laps there was more distance. Noticed something had happened in front and cars to pit. Later, then I heard a fast Eagle , this was Pelle’s with new tires and he overtakes me at the straight . I see in front Pelle’s engine blow and disappeared to pit again.
    At lap 38 in front of me, collision, had time to slow, John was hit and ended his race, too bad, two laps before finish .

    Thanks for organizing the races! I look forward to next races here at F1Historics.

    Another really disappointing performance from me
    I'm getting a little frustrated with these stupid errors, I struggling to adapt to the h-shifter & clutch.
    Anyway, it's all down to not practicing enough, so no-one but myself to blame.

    Never been a big fan of watkins, the Loop catches me out too often, as does the final turn. Thursday was no different

    Hopefully I can make it next week, I have a friend visiting... if not, thanks for the season & see you next year

    Grats podium & finishers, & my greatest appreciation to the admin team
