WOW

What a race, especially the end!

Allan is probably smashed in the Leagues club or somewhere by now... he's pretty chuffed with his and Richards efforts... They led briefly, but a slow stop and some bad luck cost some a little time but a freakish amount of positions... but they got nearly all of them back again...

As good as the 88 cars are, the V8 Cars are still shitboxes across the twisty top bit compared to the Ferrari though  :thumbsup:

Impressive... is that a typo ?

yes, pity... just one of those things... wheel nut jammed, wasted 10-15 seconds... just happened to cost 10 spots or so... bad luck...

strategy also not 100% in hindsight, but so what. Win some lose some.

Indeed... I didn't see it live so not sure, but from what I've seen/heard it seems like a plain dumb logistical screw up.

Nah, it was a roll of the dice.

They finished 8 seconds behind the winners, yet made an extra pit stop that took 60...

all came down to safety car timing really.
