Wavy World Tour
Round 5 of the Theamusante Community Wavy World Tour, was 90 minutes at Monza. I drove together with Sophie Aeronwen. I came home for the UK in the beginning of the evening, just in time for the race.
I arranged that Sophie was the first driver, she drove the qualifying and the first 45 minutes. There was 2 mandatory pitstops and I supposed to do the second pitstop without a driver swap.
Sophie drove a good qualifying and first stint, then I got the car and all of my buttons weren’t working and also my shifters. With my keyboard I could request Sophie again and I drove a whole lap to the pits in the first gear.
We lost a lot of time and we ended up P13, Sophie drove good and we were lucky to get some points! We are currently P5 in the championship. The next race is Friday 17-09-2021, 2 hours at Bathurst.
RCI Endurance World Challenge
The first round of the RCI Endurance World Challenge was on Saturday 04-09-2021, the 6 hours at Imola. Sophie and I drive this championship together in the Bentley. I didn’t had time to practice because I come back on Friday the September 3th from the UK and we had the Wavy World Tour.
I qualified at P6, it wasn’t a good lap, but yeah… It is what it is… It’s an 6 hours race and everything can happen!! After little bit of damage from the start, we were driving some good stints.
Unfortunately, I got 2 track limits in the first stint (on the same spot) and Sophie got 1 track limit in the second stint. With 4,5 hours to go, we knew one mistake means a drive trough.
We were on P2 and car number #22 got I drive through, which gave us P1 in the race. Luckily we kept Bernadette (de Bentley) on track. I was taking it easy with a 26 seconds lead. Unfortunately, there was a lag spike and a car was disappearing and come back on track when I was in the little chicane. (see YouTube video)
I had some damage and we lost a lot of time, we were in second place again. Sophie drove an amazing last stint, I had almost a heart attack but we won the race!! Well done Sophie, you drove very good and I’m proud of you!! It’s our first win together!!
Theamusante 3’s a crowd
On Wednesday 08-09-2021 I drove the 3’s a crowd.
It was 3 races; night, wet and dry at Zandvoort. I’m sorry I didn’t stream it but I will upload the replay later. It was good practice for the Sim Grid Sprint Cup on 09-09-2021 at Zandvoort. During the night race, I drove a new PB, 1:34.932!!
Hopefully, Alethea Boucq and I will get a good result! We will give it all!!
