Thanks for joining mates, this was great fun.
Man of the evening for me: JENS ROOS
We had a hard fight in both races, over full distance with equal pace.
Very fast, tight but 100 % gentlemenlike with not a single touch - thank you mate!!!
Hope to CU all at the next ACD Series
Fiat 500 Metalmoro
Two frustrating races for me. I still have problems to get a constant pace and making too many mistakes. In race 1 I had some hard fighting with Rezo. Sorry for my aggressive driving, your defence costed me too many nerves
In race 2 I had some contact in turn 1, I think it was Ken. Sorry for that, I made a DT for this. After this incident, the race was over for me. I hope the new race series works better for me.
Congrats to the winners.
Bill the car in your mirror trys to get your attention
Seems your focus was more on the car in front than on the car behind, I first thought that I gave you not enough room or it was three wide with Jens. But it seems I felt a bit like Hamilton in 2012 Spa and you grosjeaned me. But ok happens, somehow fits very well to my experience in this series. Except for the Salzburgring, it was full with up and downs. ( Way more downs than ups)
My starts had something in common the were poor since Spa, maybe a too long first gear, probably I should have sooner worked that out.
So nearly the same for both races, lost three places at the start at race one, Gehard then parked his car on the apex, good for him and Jens, bad for me. Got even worse after spinning on the astro turf and searching reverse... The chasing Ken and Micheal, who also spun on the astro turf. Second race crash with Bill, passed four cars on track, one by one. Probably not too bad, good battle with you guys, even that I have to admit that I was too agressive against Lor Rezo, sorry. Klaus then didn´t cracked under my pressure.
Oh and good job Pascal, but there is one golden rule here, do not crash with Ken. He also drove the car of your favorite driver, Checo Perez, so two good reasons
A bit more careful at the start and more consistency, then you should be good for the future.
Last but no least visual impression of the race
@Ken Jagger Thank you for hosting this championship.
Sorry for missing this last race, got delayed at work.
Many thanks for hosting this series it was a blast.
Thank you Ken for the Championship. It was fun. These cars are made for racing not like a lot where you need to save with everything.
Sadly my results wasn't good, I always suffered from something.
This race started really bad. I wasn't able to make a good result at the first quali. At the first race I started well, but at Mansell I slided too wide and spun in the wall. That race was over, but I made it to the finish.
The second quali was much better. And second start was better than first. Unfortunately the crash was right in front of me, so I needed to brake so lost positions what I caught before. Then I had fun fights for the rest of the race. The only thing what bothered me was that 2 or 3 guys always ran wide in Mansell, so they had more nomentum.
And the finish... I don't know what happened to @Lor Rezo but surprised me.
This was the finish:
Yes, what a finish
Thank you Ken for the series and also to Gerhard for the initial idea
And many thanks to Gerhard and the ACD guys for suggesting it.
