The rain confined us to the indoor track last night for the first time in a while, but racing backwards is always worth it. It took some adjustment for the 8 teams with the ‘icy’ track conditions and the reverse direction to get a handle on it. For qualifying it was tight as usual with just over a tenth of a second separating the top 3 teams: PayPal Thunder, Papal Thunder, and Sushanth.
Despite a couple cautions and the track being a bit slippery we still did 166 laps. PayPal Thunder, receiving one of the two black flags AND a drive thru penalty, ended up in the 1st spot with Papal Thunder slipping to 2nd because of a bad seat belt, Gabor in 3rd and the fastest lap of the night and Sushanth in the 4th spot. But the rest of the story was the number of battles on track for the last 20 minutes. Lots of intense, clean racing!
