Hockenheim Race 2

After a night of rain and a morning of wind there was a drying circuit for qualifying two. After some set up ideas and changes I put the car on pole by over half a second, and put myself 3 cars in front on the grid.

After another rainy morning and similar situations to qualifying I was in for a hard race in hard conditions. My plan was to push and stay out of trouble and try and bring the car home in first without too many hitches. With a sprained wrist from the previous race warming the tyres was a hard task to do and was especially important being a wet drying circuit, fortunately for me I was on the dry side of the start finish line.

I managed to get a great start making many places up again by the first corner and staying out of trouble which was the most important thing. I got up to 7th place overall and stayed in 1st place national but the occasional international car came past in the first 5 laps before the race seemed to have settled down.

After battling with Henry Arundel I was pushing very hard to keep with him I started looking at the pit board to see what the gap to the 2nd national was and every lap it increased by about 2-4 seconds. After a fairly lonely race which was pretty hard going as was very difficult conditions the chequered flag came out in which I took first place national and 10th place overall and having nearly a 50 second lead to the second national (Gabriel Dias)
Great race scoring 21 points and 6 more than my closest rival Gabriel Dias, extending my lead to 49 points in total.
