MRC ACC League Round 11/12 – Silverstone Sprints

I knew I was going to struggle this week – a set track combined with little practice meant it was always going to be a big ask. The two sprints would be all about staying on track, finishing and collecting points. I didn’t get a lot of opportunity to practice during the week – starting a new job meant I was exhausted in the evenings. I did manage to get some laps in on Friday morning and over lunch and was able to lap around 2:16 without making too many mistakes.

MRC ACC League Round 10/12 – Imola Sprints

For some reason, Imola isn’t a circuit I do well at (even by my standards!) and no matter how much I enjoy driving it I always seem to get caught in other peoples accidents, hit or make a silly mistake and it’s all over. After a couple of practice races during the week against both the AI and some real opponents I knew I had some consistency and if I could hold it together I’d be able to finish in the top 10.

MRC ACC League Round 8/12 – Kyalami Sprints

After a couple of good results as Suzuka last week I was keen to start a run of good results. With only 2pt seperating black306mi and I in the league I really needed to beat him. I didn’t get as much practice in as I would have liked and was averaging lap times in the mid 1:46 bracket by the time the race started. I’d done a race distance the previous night and concentrated on fuel, tire pressures and consistency.

MRC ACC League Round 5/12 – Mount Panorama

Mount Panorama has always been one of my favourite circuits – it looks really impressive, with two long straights up and down the mountain and then the fast and technical section at the top. There’s almost no error for margin and when it bites, it bites hard. An 80 minute endurance race was always going to be a big ask, even if it was in the daylight and after the ESR race at the same track.

MRC ACC League Round 3/12 – Spa Sprint

After the 80 minute endurance race that was round 2, the following week saw round 3 still at Spa but this time for 2 30 minute sprints in the wet. With another 50 minute race at Spa coming up with the ESR crew I’d done a lot of mileage at the track over the last 2 weeks. While I wasn’t especially confident of a strong result I didn’t think I’d make a fool of myself either. After a mid week wobble when I nearly didn’t take part I set aside a couple of evenings for some wet practice and found that I wasn’t as bad as I’d feared.
