Race Report:

GPL gets 20y old in Oktober so i wanted to race again to celebrate it.
i drive a few rounds with sims now and then but no real training and no competitive races in idk...months?

i had a 2-3 session for 30min. bevore the race and got at least stable with my times. my right foot lacks a bit endurance. wich i felt in quali

anyway i drove with 37l fuel in Q and 90l in race. in Q i just used the time to concentrate on race performance.


start was solid. radek got a bit shaky 2 wide in T1 on the inside and ich reached P3. Harald was slipping slightly away but i still could see him. trying to follow. in the first 2-3 Rounds i am allway a bit cold and slow but it got better over time.
to follow harald i drove the only way i know: Q-Mode-Style! after 10 rounds or so i got slowly better. maybe he overcooked tires or i just hit a better rythm. i could overtake him around the half mark. adrenalin was pumping againwith the 2 wide but all went fine i guess. i managed to get away from hin an pitboard showed kelvin 4 sek. ahead. again i still could see him a bit, i felt good and rode the lotus hard. in the last round i got very close to him but it wasn´t enough to win.

well done boys. i was a pleasure to race. to bad we dont get full grid anymore. GPL is still fun to drive. i hope it gets some day on GOG.

Well first of, excuse my late race recap; things are just too busy these days during the week.

I really like Zandvort, ‘cos it feels like a dance floor with a funky rhythm and a circular canon of rpm-sound in those sweeping turns at the dunes :grin: .
Qualy was one of the toughest since years. Harry laid down a 1:23,5 :rolleyes: early in quals! That was quite intimidating to me; meaning: To put the Brabbl on pole I had to do a new PB out of the cuff :kratz: .
So the minutes ran down and some how I squeezed out a low 1:23,5 and a new PB; incredible I was really pumped after I pulled that of in Jens-Kraft*-fashion with one minute to go.

Overtaking isn’t that easy here and this place really can bite ya if you overdrive your ride when overheating the rear tyres. So my racestrategist made the call to have a clean fast start by all means and stay in 1st! After try to figure how to stay in front without overstressing the rubber. :naughty:
Well, mission accomplished the gap between Harry and me was quite consistent at about 3 sec. till halfway point. Then suddenly things became really intense. The pit board showed that Steff passed Harry for 2nd, and this dude in his Lotus, who came back from retirement, was on a mission :weg: . Still half the distance to go, so I really had slim hope to keep Steff’s Lotus behind me.
Anyway, I guess it was time for 'the zone'and me and my Brabham picked up the pace by a tad to click down fast and consistent laps. However the gap melted away slowly but surely, but I also figured out that I had a little advantage in Pulleveld :lookin: , the last turn that leads to the front straight, ...which made my day :champagner: .
Still can’t believe I pulled this of against Steff and of course Harry. According to lap times these guys are faster :angel: !!

Thaks for the race guys & huge thanks to David for hosing this event :daumenrauf: . That race will stick in my memory! :bounce:

*Jens Kraft: former EOLC driver which was famous to do the pole lap in his final qualy-lap ....presumably without any practice
