Pre-race report

3 November 2012

Abu Dhabi is the next stop on the calendar and we are racing there with the F1 for the first year, which is great but it means our races are short 3x12 laps with 1x20min qualifying whereby your 3 fastest laps qualify you for each of the 3 races. We will be using soft tyres also, so lots of challenges. We need to beat Jamie and win races to stay in the championship hunt with only 3 rounds to go. 

Post-race report

4 November 2012

We really struggled for pace this weekend and the qualifying format didnt suit a struggling car so we started each race behind the 8 ball. We tuned the car and I moved forward in each race and finished 6, 4, 5, if we had more than 12 laps i am confident we would have got on the podium. Championship gap is now 296 points so we need to head home and focus on Winton in two weeks time.
