Mayhem on the Mountain
The Sim Grid organized last Thursday 15-07-2021 the mayhem on the mountain. I didn’t have much time to practice and I did not have much experience with GT4’s. I knew it’s going to be a tough evening and it was. It was a 90 minutes race at Bathurst with the Gt4.

My strategy plan didn’t work out and I hit the wall with a bit more than 5 minutes to go and I ended up P16. The result could have been a lot worse and didn’t have much confidence in the race because one hour before the race I started practicing.

Pro League Racing; World Tour Round 2
Round 2 at Snetterton was on Monday 19-07-2021, it was two races, 30 minutes each in very wet conditions. In the first race I, unfortunately, got hit but I managed to recover it a bit and ended up P15 and P13 in the pro class. Race 2 I drove better and could pass some drivers, I drove Bernadette really on the edge and that paid off!

Unfortunately, when I was fighting for P4, I almost hit another driver in the rear just before the braking point, I could avoid him but I spun. I ended up with P7 and P5 in pro class.

I was really happy with the result of the second race, I had no pace during practice or qualifying. I qualified P12 and didn’t have a good feeling. Luckily my race pace was 4 seconds better than in qualifying.

The Sim Grid Sprint Cup
The Sim Grid Sprint Cup Round 2, is on Thursday 22-07-2021, 90 minutes at Kyalami. Luckily I drove there last week for the World Tour at Kyalami with the Bentley.
I will be driving with Alethea Boucq and together we are driving the Bentley in split 3.

The last race was at Misano and we ended up P14 and there was more pace in the car and I think we can go for another good result tomorrow!

Theamusante Community; Wavy World Tour
The Wavy World Tour Round 3 is Friday 23-07-2021, 90 minutes at Kyalami. I will be driving with Sarah Johnson and Sophie Aeronwen. The last two races we ended up P7 and we are going to give it all for a better result!

The Sim Grid Endurance Cup
On Saturday 24-07-2021 the final round of The Sim Grid Endurance Cup is 3 hours at Misano. I will be driving with Alethea Boucq and Sarah Johnson. Misano is one of my favorites and I hope to get back on the fast times to get a good result.

24 hours at Spa
I’m also driving the 24hours at Spa Francorchamps this weekend 24-07-2021/25-07-2021. I will be driving with Maikel van den Berg, Patrick van den Berg, Esmeralda van der Naald and Sophie Aeronwen. It is nice to drive with my husband, brother in law and friends!

I’m really looking forward to the race and my busy racing weekend. It’s going to be tough, as the race is on iRacing and I normally drive Assetto Corsa Competizione, but I like a challenge and I will give it all!!
