The Final My previous results lined me up in 14th on the grid. I was the highest placed driver in the team going into the final which was a good feeling. The final consisted of the top 30 drivers out of over 100 who entered. Being 14th on the grid surrounded by fast and talented drivers was pretty cool knowing I had earned it with good results and racing.
It took the first 3 laps for my tyres to get up to temperature, initially struggling for grip. Luckily the safety car was deployed allowing me to work on my tyres. There was no room for error with a tight pack. Into turn 5 I got understeer and ran wide resulting in 2 cars going past. This was a frustrating mistake as I had just been a little too aggressive into the entry. The result of this was a bad exit from the corner too and as I got back up to pace on the straight two more cars got past me.
Finishing the Final in 18th place was a bittersweet ending to the weekend. I was disappointed with the way I drove in the final. I knew I had the potential to be at least top 10. I was told that it was a terrific result when you consider the calibre of drivers who have travelled from all over the world to race, but of course I only really want to win, or finish knowing I could not have done any more.
