Welcome to my twenty-six weekly blog!!
Pro league Racing; World Tour
The final round off the PRL World Tour was 1 hour at Bathurst. I knew it’s going to be a difficult one… I practiced a lot when I was at home, for the race I used the rig from Sarah.
It was very difficult, I didn’t had my adjusted pedal plates. That was a big challenge, my feet were sliding off the pedals. The input from the pedals was on the right of the screen. (Normally I use a special dash, to see what I’m doing with my pedals.
I needed points, that was my goal and survive the mountain!! I qualified very badly and started around 20th place, my start was very good and for a while, I was in 9th place.
Unfortunately, the trouble came later, my feet were sliding off in the mountain and I crashed hard. We had one mandatory pit stop and I did it right away, 1 minute and 30 seconds off damage.
I knew a good result wasn’t in it, but a couple of points I need for the championship. I ended at place 23 and had a couple of points. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for place 3 in the championship and I ended at place 4!
I’m not happy with it, but my race was not pro class worth it..!! I knew it was going to be tough, but this was a disaster and all about surviving.
Place 4 is something to be proud of, only I was so close to getting place 3, I will maybe be proud of it later.
I finally could meet some of the ladies from GTWR R8G! I meet Sophie, Sarah and Alethea!
We surprised Alethea with her birthday BBQ, she didn’t know I couldn’t come to visit her. It was amazing to see her face, when I give her a video call and standing in her street! We all spent a lot off time together with sim racing but also in the voice chat.
Sometimes I talk with them a lot more then with my own husband. I could see a lot from the United Kingdom, I saw a lot of the hills and even “walked” there together with Sophie!! I made a lot of pictures with my camera and I enjoy the British food.
I have a great time, to never forget and I will enjoy the next couple of days!
