Congratulations to yesterday's winner Owen Watts!

34 drivers completed atleast 50% race distance and are 1 step closer to potentially being drawn as a $250 winner after Round 8.

COTA in TCR is Round 6 with practice next week and the Championship race on May 31.

That race was so intense. It took me way longer than normal to relax to get to sleep. I wish T6 didn't want to kill me or I might have had a really great finish. Spun twice there and almost a third, all by myself. Then had a near death experience in the bus stop too.


One thing we might want to rethink is using the short pace lap on tracks we expect to have large fields. I started 23rd, so pretty close to mid-pack and I had to really hustle to catch the pack on exit of T11. I'm sure it was even worse behind me. I had enough time to slow down a little, then the green came out and I was considerably faster than those in front of me. Ended up gaining 7 spots before the bus stop.


I watched most of the broadcast today too and great job there, as always.
