With a new car, completely untested other than qualifying, I started 7th on the grid. Converted that to 6th on the opening lap, which became 5th when Gino Ussi spun in front of me.
However, I'd made two errors. Firstly, the throttle pedal stop came loose, and unscrewed, limiting my throttle to about 65%. And secondly I'd be a little optimistic about the top speeds, and had a 6th gear that was too long. But I couldn't really tell, as the dashboard wasn't telling me what gear I was in most of the time. As such, I was unable to defend when Olly Rae caught me on the last lap, and pipped me to the line. 6th place in the end.
Not bad for an untested car, but plenty of room to improve!
