...SCREEN MINIMIZE TO DESKTOP !!!
Good pace, good strategy but I guess this is racing. Nothing is over until the checkered flag. I had to cut to video as soon I got the failure, words not good for general audience. Instead I put a happy ending.
This video is the sequel of the Clash of the Titans:
Watch at 2:32
Does anybody had a similar experience ?
Somebody asked me how I got a pole position against several experienced drivers. You've got to be kidding me !!!
Anyway here we go.
Thanks for watching.
Always a pleasure to race against Mark Carty. We had endless battles in the last years. ALL went good, hard and fun.Like yesterday; more than an hour bumper to bumper;both had many times to force a overtake (bombdive,etc) but the camaraderie and simracing respect prevailed .
Please enjoy this video. Watch in HD. Thank you.

What an evening!
Used the setup from last time so knew I was quick, and with 10 minutes to go before qualifying Tobias was not signed up so I thought an easy night was in store.
Still wanted to race so treated that part like anything else. Then with seconds to go before qualifying Tobias joins.
But hey, 16 points lead, I just needed to be somewhere near him and that would be enough.
Qualified on pole, very happy with that and felt it was just a case of getting away cleanly and going from there. As I said I was not counting anything until the race was over.
No need to race hard particularly, just wanted to gap the main field so I could let people past if necessary and still do enough.
Engine failure!!!!!! What the hell!!! Lost power and pulled over swearing heavily, I could not believe it! Tobias was at this point in second and took over the lead as he passed me.
That was it I thought. Nothing I could do now and well done to him.
Then the most unbelievable thing I have ever been involved in since I started racing in 2002. Tobias came round a lap later, and shoved me back to the pits, losing himself a stack of time and dropping to 12th in the process.
I knew I was done but could not believe this show of sportsmanship.
So now I had to sit for 40 minutes wondering if Tobias knew the points well enough to know what he needed to do. I was sitting watching his race as he picked people off, I did the maths and realised if he came third that would be it, he would win on average finishing position.
And so with a couple of laps left he got into third. I had been flicking through other results to work out the average finish, and then the light at the end of the tunnel. I had scored 2 points. I had concentrated so much on the top positions, I had not noticed I had 2 points. Suddenly 3rd was not enough. Tobias finished 7 seconds behind 2nd place and the title.
It dawned on me with seconds left I had won, and an incredible event for me was over.
Tobias - I don't know a single other driver who would have done what you did, so I applaud you totally for that and for that alone you deserved the win. There isn't a "Sportsman of the Year" award here, but if there was, you just won it!
