I did a single stop as hadn't done much practice and thought single would be ok. Made 30 laps on first stint so not sre why the tyre blew on the second stint.
I had some great battles through the race and could barley walk after. I haven't raced much leately and the races I've done have been fairly short so was knackered after the race. Then I had to have lunch with my in laws which meant me and my father in law drinking 3 bottles of red
Tough sunday for me.
Ah! I did a few laps practice the night before, and had some experience with this track months ago when it and then V8 were released, so knew that although its possible to one stop that kind of distance, its also a big gamble on tyres. And in the practice session before the race i watched a guy do 29laps and blow his tyres, so that made my mind for me, two stops. Stopped on lap 19 and 37 if i recall, running 53.3L of fuel each time, which gave me some room to move with strategy.
My arms ached for hours after...i had prepared before the race, with a drink bottle next to me as i know from past experience you can get damn hot and sweaty in races like this, but the race was so intense that i didnt even pick up the drink once during the race, was just too busy behind the wheel...even doing anti roll and brake bias adjustments as fuel levels burned down was hard enough!
Its racing events like this that will always have me coming back to iracing!
