Welcome to my eighty sixth weekly blog!!

Back in the sim
After a very special holiday, I’m back in the sim! We went on a winter sport resort; this is by far my favorite holiday! I love the mountains, snow, and skiing. For the last 5 years, I have been using a Monoski to ski when I’m sitting down. For the first time I used the Ski Mojo. That’s a brace, helps me to stand up, and makes it easier to make the movements. I wasn’t sure if this would be working well. Luckily, it was working great!! I could ski normally, I was very careful, and I enjoyed it a lot!! It made my holiday very special.

 

Banana Boffins Series
On Tuesday 31-01-2023, was round 3 of the Banana Boffins Series, 90 minutes at Donnington. This series is organized by my friend Alethea Boucq. I was driving in my Bernadette (The Bentley) again! My pace wasn’t the fastest but I knew a good decent result was in here. There were 2 mandatory stops, I needed to add fuel, but tires weren’t mandatory. I qualified P14, in the midfield, and I chose to start with a full tank. After a good start, and avoiding all the incidents in front of me, I was at P8. I knew this would be tough to hold, but I gave it a good try! After an eventful second pitstop, the game decided to change my tires, but I set it up to not change tires, still don’t know why it still did. I lost 28 seconds, and it didn’t make me very happy at that time. I could push the car a lot more, on the new tires, and gained some places. I catched up to the car in front of me, but didn’t have enough time to pass him. He had a 15 second penalty, and due to that, I finished at P9!
