Hello everyone and welcome to the 24th and final blog for SimRace247.com that I will be producing for a little while. I hope that everyone is doing very well and keeping cool now that the Summer season is finally kicking in.
As I mentioned in the introduction, this will be my last blog for a while. I’ve been streaming since the start of January 2022 and I’m long overdue for a bit of relaxation time. Also, this year hasn’t been a good one either. In fact, it’s been utterly bad and it has affected me in so many ways, especially with my mental health. At the time of writing, I’m not feeling that great in myself. So, I feel that now is the time to stop to rest and reconsider my future in terms of content creating and sim racing.
But of course, I still have one more stream to go which I’ll mention towards the end of this blog. For now though, let’s talk you through the final full week which I went live with on Twitch.
Monday 20th June – RCI British Masters Championship Round 5 at Brands Hatch
Monday hosted the penultimate round of the RCI British Masters championship from the Brands Hatch circuit. Going into this event, I wasn’t feeling at all confident of producing a good result because Brands Hatch is normally a venue which the McLaren 720S GT3’s perform very well at. And in terms of the championship, it definitely wasn’t a good thing as my nearest rival for the series, Vency Raychinov, was only 6 points behind going into the meeting.
Even though I managed to qualify P2 on the grid, first blood went to Vency but not by very much. I was frustrated after qualifying because I knew that I had the pace to be on pole position but it never materialised.
The race ended up being even worse. Even a week later, I’m still perplexed about what happened during the first stint. I can’t explain why but my front tires went off very quickly which dropped down the leaderboard. So I had to change my strategy slightly and pit for a fresh set of tires just before the 30 minute mark.
The rest of the race became increasingly frustrating as there was some aggressive driving, particularly by the McLaren 720S of Andy Boardman who tangled with me or pushed me clean off the track as they was exiting the pits which I thought wasn’t very nice of him.
I tried my upmost to regain second place, but it didn’t pan out well as I ended up in a late race collision with another McLaren of Ben Mullard, which meant that I slumped back down to 5th place by the chequered flag. I was completely lost for words and couldn’t understand why and where it all went wrong in this race.
After Brands Hatch, I have now slipped down to second place in the championship and six points behind Raychinov after his dominant win in the race as you can see from the points table (link below):
If you want to rewatch the race at Brands Hatch, here is my Twitch stream of the RCI British Masters series event as well as the official broadcast of the race.

Tuesday 21st June – What If Multi-Multiclass Racing Competed Here? Final Episode At Bathurst
After a very stressful event on Monday, it was time to unwind a bit by having a fun stream with the final episode in series 2 of “What If Multi-Multiclass Racing Competed Here?”. This time, it was time to tackle the ultimate test with one of my favourite racetracks in all of Australia. Mount Panorama in Bathurst. 30 F1, F2 & F3 cars around this notoriously difficult and amazing venue. How hard can it be?
Well, the answer to that was, VERY! Because by the end of the experiment, I was physically tired. My wrists were aching from the demands of driving a Formula One car around the Mount Panorama venue. Plus, the experiment had to be restarted twice before finally attempting to get it running smoothly on the third attempt. But it was absolutely immense fun and one of the best in the series.
If you would like to watch for yourself and see just how challenging single seater multiclass racing can be, here is the stream. I hope you’ll enjoy viewing this one.

Thursday 23rd June – MASTERCUP RALLY SERIES EVENT 6 AT SWEDEN
The final stream I went live with on Thursday was the 6th event of the brutal, Mastercup Rally Series. This time, being contested on the slippery, snowy stages of Sweden. An ultimate test of precision and skill. Just one false move and you could end up being buried within the deep snowbanks. After my change in fortunes in DiRT Rally, could I keep up the great momentum or will this rally be as successful as my other ventures? What I meant to say was, end in disaster. Ha Ha! I was hoping not for the latter. To find out how I got on, you can rewatch the Twitch stream of my attempt at the rally.
DiRT RALLY STREAM
What’s happening this week on the Twitch channel?
I only have one stream planned next week before I head off for my break. But, it’s going to be the BIG one with the final round of the RCI British Masters Championship from the circuit of Donington Park.
After losing the championship lead, I’m very much determined to bow out in style and try to win the PRO driver’s championship from Vency Raychinov. It won’t be easy though. He is one seriously quick racer and I will need to put in one of the drives of my life in order to beat him. But can we pull it off and win the final race and the championship? I sure hope that I can!!
If you want to, please be sure to follow me on Twitch for my live streams as well as subscribe to my Youtube channel for future video projects. You can also join our DiRT Rally 2.0 club for fun, monthly rally events and see how you fair against other members of the community.
That’s about wraps things up for now folks. I have no idea yet as to when I’ll be making my return to sim racing, content creating and writing blogs for SimRace247, but I would like to take this time to thank everyone who has been so kind enough to take the time to read my blogs as well as for the support on my sim racing journey these past 3 years. I wish you all the very best and I hope to see you some time again in the future.
