I had to leave the PC immediately after the race and later was too tired to write anything
I'm not usually the kind of person who leaves things undone or does them half-properly, but it's gone like this here for some reason..
Race was okayish, I believe. Could've perhaps finished 6th but Pingu was good as ever, constant and while I believe I drove some laps faster than him, I drove equally as many slower than him. Especially in the 1st stint when I was still close. He got better exits from some corners, I got better exits in some others, but at the end of the day, what mattered was that he beat me in qualification by some 0,1xx seconds as usual and due to that it was left for me to do the chasing. In the middle stint, I don't remember who it was but when I went wide in a corner there were some incidents when people attempted to overtake me kind of roughly, making me slide, but I carried on nevertheless. For a while I think I dropped back to 9th, but after the pitstops it was a case of hunting VPA, which I managed and then my old 'friend' Pingu in the green car, which didn't manage obviously..
Another factor is that in the Sunday evenings, when the race is held, my little brother usually likes to play flash-games over the internet with stepdad's laptop (he's overly kind to the little man and lets him do anything basically). Which altogether meant that in qualification and twice in the race I experienced quite the lag, because my connection suffers immediately from sharing it. Later on, stepdad was browsing the net and well.. let's just say me and him aren't the 'best kind of friends' and I (a 22 year-old guy, who, by the words of the other family, should be 'grown-up') could never just go on and tell him to stop using the net because I'm 'playing a PC game'..
Despite all that, it still went fine and 7th place is quite satisfying actually, compared to the 17th I had in the 1st race. Would love to have a completely lag and insect-interruption-free race though. Probably next week when stepdad won't be home and then hopefully a chance to beat Pingu.. if only I drove properly. Wee!
