The good thing about touring cars is that even if you are off the pace it's all a matter of finding someone in your same speed and go have some wheel banging with him. I found it in Oyvind in this race, was fun . Sorry for the tap at the braking Oyvind , hope you had fun too. See you on the next one!

Some great racing out there last night. Quite pleased with my own driving, very few mistakes but the one I made cost me another podium in heat 2. There was also an incident at the beginning of lap 3, when I got alongside Riddall into turn 1 and then with Parker into turn 2. Both of them ran wide and I was worried it was because I pushed them out. I hope there's no hard feeling about this, but after looking at the replay I don't think I did anything out of the ordinary, I hugged the inside line as much as I could and there was no contact.
Looking forward to the following races! This version of Philipp Island is epic BTW, as good as iRacing's laser-scanned version. Where did you find it?

Had a lot of fun, sadly two "contacts" with Juha in both races.
First race completely my mistake - tried a late move against Jacob in Lap 5, but lost the car immediately under braking, touched the grass and spun. Juha had no chance to react and T-boned me, sadly his engine didn't survive the impact. Big sorry for that!
Second race, same corner. After some trouble in the first lap i could avoid any contacts. This time Juha braked a little late and hit poor Dave Miller (who went straight to downtown Melbourne), with that contact he went straight and he ran off track. I saw it in my mirrors, but also had to go on the grass, losing many positions.
Conclusion: My Toyota has been surprisingly fast, two podium finishes would have been possible. Speed in Qualifying was way better, than i expected. Have to work on my starts, but i think there's no chance against the RWD cars.
Physics felt really great on this track, never saw any cars flipping over und tires felt great. Good job!
