Thanks to everyone who ran in this series over the last four weeks. I hope to see all of you racing online somewhere in the future, if not as often as we have done here at R2P.

First race back after a 4 year break, I am the first to admit I was very rusty.

Had a crash course in more ways than one, it was a good race to get back into things but when I was being lapped by somebody I lifted slightly to allow them to pass easier into the next corner and got rear ended into the signposts which killed my car.

Not the best way to get back into the swing of things I guess, see you all at COTA tomorrow night
