Rockingham Race 2

Like the first race I started in second place only 3 cars behind Gabriel Dias this time, I would have more of a chance to fight for the lead.

I had a decent start again but got hindered by two stalling cars in front of me on the grid which made it a bit harder to get a high top speed before the first corner due to braking and weaving around the stalled cars. After having a clean first corner I continued to chase down first place man Gabriel until a brave move by my team mate Victor Garcia came off for the worse, the limited space got the better of Victor and Gabriel and collided causing great damage to Gabriel’s car and I had to take evasive action by taking to the grass to avoid other spinning cars.

After this first lap mayhem again the safety car came out so the wreckage could be taking in and salvaged. I knew at this point if I kept my car out of trouble then I would have a very high chance of wining the race from Gabriel’s early retirement. I also found out that another of the national class cars had been in a collision which helped my cause even more.

After the safety car had come in I had a close battle with some of the international cars, while trying to overtake one of the remaining T-Sport cars I had a slight tap from Nick Tandy who also wanted a bit of the action.  After having a battle with some of the international cars a gap emerged, from this point I had to drive the remaining laps to a comfortable pace to win the race. Before I knew it the chequered flag had come out to finish my pretty lonely race and to make my race weekend complete with two wins and one fastest lap.

From a not so great qualifying came a fantastic weekend to extend my current lead in the championship to 42 points!
